Garland TX (06/25/21) Racing fans will be treated to a huge night of outlaw sprint car racing when the touring teams of the Bandits Outlaw Sprint Series(SM) return to HOT Speedway (Heart O’ Texas) *TONIGHT* Friday, June 25th at 8pm during MDA Muscling in the Dirt Night. The ‘Bandits are presented in part by Smiley’s Racing Products, Griffith Truck & Equipment and The Peterson Agencies.
:30 ‘Bandits HOT 5/14 Race Rewind: With ‘Chamber of Commerce’ weather conditions in place, and 30 teams signed in, a rematch of the March ‘Bandits event was anticipated, as all eyes in the stands were focused on Chase Randall and Channin Tankersley who would line up first and third in the feature event. Yet, when the green flag flew for the 25-lapper, it would be Dalton Steed vaulting out to lead for the first nine circuits, with Randall and Tankersley battling it out for the runner up position. Shortly after Tankersley would take command of the 2nd position, disaster would strike for the Houston-area racer after contact with Junior Jenkins, sidelining them both for the evening. Meanwhile, 7th place starter Marcus Thomas would emerge on the restart in 3rd place. On the restart, Steed would resume the lead with Thomas in tow, and a brief battle would take place between the two with Thomas taking over the point position. Fourth-place starter Austin Mundie would briefly take over 2nd place, with Steed battling back; with the top three finishers being Thomas, Steed and Mundie. Yet another exciting and unpredictable night of ‘Bandits racing!
