BLOOMING PRAIRIE, Minn., March 13, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — The most exciting race series on oval tracks is planning a repeat performance at Bristol Motor Speedway. After wowing the crowd during their exhibition race last October, fans were left asking for more – and The Bandits have answered the call. The Bandit Bristol Battle is set for Saturday, October 12th which will also serve as the season finale race where the 2019 Points Champion will be crowned. Few people have ever witnessed semi-truck racing at nearly 100 miles-per-hour on the world’s fastest half-mile track – but thousands will have the chance this fall!
Craig Kruckeberg, owner of the Bandit Big Rig Series and driver of the #55 Bandit truck said, “We raced this beast last year at the Halloween Monster Truck Mash and the crowd loved it! It wasn’t a points race, but we held nothing back and it showed to the fans. We’re going to chase lightning again and bring all the Bandits to Thunder Valley on Oct. 12th, close our year out in Bandit Style and crown our 2019 points champion. The Bandit Bristol Battle is in the making and we look forward to continuing the tradition with this storied track.”
Tickets for this event are on sale now and fans can purchase online at www.banditseries.com/bristol.
This exciting and affordable family event has activities for the kids and events going on all day – including a Fan Series Truck Show and, of course, the thrill of big rig racing with the Iron Giants of The Asphalt. Race gates open at 12:30pm. Fans are invited to meet the drivers of the Bandit Big Rig Series on the back stretch at Bristol Motor Speedway starting at 1:45pm, and the green flag will drop at 3:30pm.
