Brutus and Backdraft Capture Wins in Monster Truck Bash; FASTRAK Late Model Series Feature Postponed
Brutus and Backdraft score wins at The Dirt Track at Charlotte in Saturday’s Circle K Back-to-School Monster Truck Bash. The FASTRAK Late Model Series race scheduled for Saturday has been postponed until tomorrow due to inclement weather.
In a photo finish, Brutus emerged victorious over Raminator in the bracket-style head-to-head race. Backdraft’s metal-mashing, mega machine took home the win in the free-style competition.
A near capacity crowd at The Dirt Track witnessed the insane antics of 10 high-flying monster trucks, including Avenger, Backdraft, Brutus, Equalizer, Hot Tamale, Mopar Magic, Raminator, Stone Crusher, Tailgator and War Wizard.
Heavy rain and late night storms postponed the FASTRAK Late Model Series 30 lap A-Feature until tomorrow at 12:30 p.m. Hot laps, heat races and the B-Features were completed earlier in the evening. The pit gate will open at 10:30 a.m. and spectator gates will open at noon.
Tickets purchased for Saturday night’s race will be honored Sunday. Fans with further questions should contact the Charlotte Motor Speedway ticket office at 1-800-455-FANS.
Racing returns to the Dirt Track at Charlotte on Oct. 13, with The World of Outlaws Late Model Showdown. Tickets are just $25 for adults and $10 for children 12 and under.
