This weekend, all fans of pavement sprint cars and flat out ridiculous speed will have their eyes glued upon the high banks of Bristol Motor Speedway in Bristol, Tennessee. We’ve already seen dizzying speeds from Jason Blonde earlier this year, but more importantly, the Must See Racing Xtreme Sprint Series championship will be decided this weekend.
Florida’s very own Travelin’ Troy DeCaire, who was last year’s MSRXSS champ, will be aboard the TruFuel #6 machine fielded by Davey Hamilton Motorsports, and has but a two point lead over occasional Florida snowbird, Canadian driver Ryan Litt, and back in third is JoJo Helberg, who is just six points behind Travelin’ Troy.
But wait, there’s more!
Defending TBARA champion and 2008 King of the Wings champ “The Bushnell Bullet” Shane Butler is en route for Bristol as well. Shane has reunited with his King of the Wings car owner Jimmy Brown for this event. Butler is also taking with him LJ Grimm, who was his teammate at Desoto last time out and FSCF.com favorite wrench Ricky Burnett, who was last spotted in the pits of our Editor at Speed at Bubba Raceway Park last weekend.
One thing is for certain, this race will be incredibly fast as these 410 sprint cars will put down blistering lap times and this is also arguably the best equipment Travelin’ Troy has sat in yet for the MSRXSS 2011 season, all of which should make for an excellent day of racing.
More than 30 cars are expected for the Xtreme Speed Classic, which offers a full racing program of heats, semi-features, and a 25-lap main event.Competitors will be gunning for the $10,000 winner’s purse, with a minimum $1,000 paid to each car qualifying for the 25-lap feature.
Serious stuff and a super very awesome event for lovers of sprint car racing.
And if you don’t feel like driving your car/van/crossover/RV up to Bristol, Tennessee, then you can go to Bubba Raceway Park Saturday night andcatch the Florida Mini Sprint Association in action.
Here is current track record holder Jason Blonde talking about the event. If you recall, earlier this year Troy DeCaire beat him in a 19-year old sprint car at Berlin Raceway.
