Michael Day's RaceSaver legal car wins $2,000 SCB 360 event!

POSTED 6/11/17: for pic go to www.SprintCarBandits.com 

CONGRATULATIONS to Michael Day for taking home a 
well-deserved Sprint Car Bandits feature event win at 
Superbowl Speedway on Saturday, June 10th!

This marks the first ever RaceSaver legal engine to take a 
feature win in Sprint Car Bandits competition - and proves 
that our Series rules not only work, but you don't need a 
$45,000 engine in order to compete! Coupled with our tire 
rules, we're helping race teams run for full purses and save 
money while getting to do what they love.

We'd like to thank the 27-car field of quality drivers for their 
support and putting on such an excellent night of racing. At 
one point in the first heat race, there were FIVE CARS WIDE 
in corners 1-2...and no one crashed. As a matter of fact, no 
one got upside down all night long.

Thanks also goes out to the Bryant family for having a quality 
racing surface for all three Sprint Car Bandits events in 2017, 
which has really allowed us to showcase the quality of racing.

Finishing 2nd Saturday night was a hard charging Justin 
Melton driving the PRO-TECH Service #11 who started 13th.

17th place starter Michael Lang would finish third. Michael 
was dusting the field in his heat race after starting 4th when 
engine woes made him a DNF. He would then start the 
B-feature in 9th and would drive his way to the win.

We'd also like to thank Kustom Craft Exhibits of Seagoville for 
putting up TWO Hard Charger awards last night.

Complete results and points will be posted in the days to 
come, but we wanted to get out this quickie post. Our next 
Sprint Car Bandits event is already posted - which is 
Saturday July 1st at LoneStar Speedway near Kilgore, TX.

I finally have a video of one of the SCB heat races from this particular night that really helps illustrate the various points in this post:

https://youtu.be/oyu2TRqdZr4

...and this heat shows one point where the drivers were 5-wide in corners 1-2, and several times that they were 2 or 3 wide throughout the race.

The driver that started 7th was in his RaceSaver legal 305, and would end up winning this heat to become the highest point driver. (This was heat 1, won by Chad Wilson.)

And as you'll see in the video, the track had plenty of bite in it.

In the 3rd heat, Michael Day started 7th in his RaceSaver legal 305 and would pass his way up to a 2nd place finish - becoming the 2nd high point driver for the night.
