"This crowd got to see what this series is all about," Morgan said. "It's exciting racing."
It was not only exciting but also close, with Morgan winning the a-main feature race by less than two truck lengths.
"The guys adapted to the high bank, quarter-mile track very, very quickly," Bandit Director of Operations Brian Madsen said. "We were averaging about 16 second lap times, which is awfully impressive."
Despite Morgan's win in front of another sold-out crowd, Rude remains on top of the series standings. Morgan is second, followed by Ball.
"Give the fans credit – lots of rain makes for a long night, but they packed the Rim and were arguably the loudest crowd we've had all season," Madsen said.
"It was a sellout tonight, and I guarantee you when we come back in September, this will be the hottest ticket in town," Morgan said.
The Minimizer Bandit Big Rig Series now turns its attention towards the Upper Midwest.
The next event is at Hawkeye Downs Speedway in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, July 15th.
Then, it's off to Madison International Speedway in Wisconsin for the only Friday night race of 2017. The Bandits invade Madison July 28th.
