It's no doubt that the Bombers are one of the most exciting divisions that race on a weekly basis at America's Nicest Short Track. On Sunday, April 23, the Bombers will headline the Islander Hotel & Resort Spring Showdown presented by Moore's BBQ. The Limited Late Models will be in action for a 50 lap main event but the talk of the night will be the Bomber Twins!
Speedway officials have announced that the Bombers will race twin features, paying $400 to win each, full payout for each, and as an added bonus: If you can sweep the day, you'll take a $200 bonus totaling your winnings to $1000!
"We love the Bombers," said Competition Director Ben Kilcrease, "They always have full fields, exciting racing, and the fans love the show they provide! This race has been on the schedule since January but seeing the huge field of 18 cars at our last event, Bob [Lowery] and I decided to throw some big money towards the division on the 23rd."
In addition to the big money offered to win both features, they both also pay $50 minimum to start. But that's not all: Both features also award full points towards the championship and both features get you one entry into the "Race & You're In" program that hands out $20,000 worth of cash and prizes at the end of the season.
The format for this Twin event will be simple: The first feature will line up straight from qualifying. The second feature, to make things exciting, will have a complete invert of the lead lap cars from the first feature. Lap-down cars will fall into line behind the inverted cars.
Bombers aren't the only drivers getting some extra money on the 23rd.. The Battlefield Tire Street Stocks will race for $1000 (with 8+ cars) and the UCARs will race for $800 (with 8+ cars)!
In all on Sunday, the following divisions are in action: Limited Late Models, Bombers, Legends, Battlefield Tire Street Stocks, UCAR, Jr Mini Cup, and Champ Karts.
The green flag drops at 2:00 pm on Sunday, April 23rd! Tickets and pre-registration are open at carteretspeedway.com/spring
