Inside Line Promotions – GERMANTOWN, Tenn. (March 13, 2017) – Sammy Swindell has a five-decade winning streak at Devil’s Bowl Speedway, where he will kick off his sprint car season this weekend at the 44th annual Spring Nationals.
Swindell will drive for A.G. Rains this Friday and Saturday at the marquee Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour event in Mesquite, Texas, where he has won main events in the 1970s, 1980s, 1990s, 2000s and 2010s.
“We ran there before and were definitely a quick car,” he said. “We probably had a good shot at winning one last year until the track rubbered down. Most every time we’ve run together we’ve been right up front or have had an opportunity to win races every time. You can’t ask for much more than that.”
Swindell and Rains recorded four feature victories together last season and came up just short of earning another at Devil’s Bowl Speedway, where they placed fourth on the opening night before ending second in the finale last October.
“We’ve been around each other for a long time,” Swindell said. “They’ve bought my used parts over the years and I’ve helped them with how they put their cars together and set things up. Pretty much I’ve trained A.G. to do things the way I’d do it so that’s a big plus. Him and his dad build their own motors so they understand that part of it, too.”
Swindell said the team will compete in approximately 25-to-30 events this season starting this weekend at a track he’s visited Victory Lane at numerous times.
“I’ve won quite a few there,” he said. “It’s a little different. It’s not like most tracks. One end of the track is tight entering and opens up and the other is really open and tightens getting off turn four. You have to run the car quite a bit different from one end to the other. I think it puts more of the driver into it.”
Swindell has scored a dozen career Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour wins during his career, including two in 1995 and one in 2010 at Devil’s Bowl Speedway.
Swindell also has 12 career World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series victories at Devil’s Bowl Speedway.
