BLOOMING PRAIRIE, Minn., March 6, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- The most exciting race series on oval tracks is returning to Mobile International Speedway in 2019. After leaving the crowd in awe last March, the fans have asked for more, and The Bandits have answered the call – "Sweet Home Alabama" – we're coming back! The Bandit Big Rig Series event is set for Saturday, March 23rd.
Jason Johnson of the Bandit Series said, "We raced this southern favorite for the first time last year and didn't know what to expect. The Mobile fans were awesome! The racing was great, our truck show made its debut and we had a great turnout. Allen Boles became the first ever Semi-Truck Feature winner at Mobile in the #3 Peterbilt. We can't wait to get back - it's been a long Minnesota winter and we need to get out and race."
Joining the big rigs this year for the Mobile race is hometown driver Jonathan Langham, a three-time track champion. Johnson said, "Jonathan helped us out last year and we wanted to return the favor and put him behind the wheel of one of our Bandit trucks. Jonathan will be piloting the #69 Kruckeberg Motorsports Freightliner and he's definitely looking forward to it."
Tickets for this event are just $15.00 online, kids 8 and under are free and fans can purchase online at www.banditseries.com.
This exciting and affordable family event has activities going on all day including the Fan Series Truck Show starting at 11:00am and, of course, the thrill of big rig racing with the Iron Giants of Asphalt. Race gates open at 3:00pm and fans are invited to meet the drivers on the front stretch starting at 5:00pm, the green flag will drop at 7:00pm.
