By Staff | Feb 13, 2013

The most fan friendly event in motorsports will return bigger and better in 2013. As the Tyler County Fairgrounds/Speedway will play host once again to the unique event on Memorial Weekend, May 23-26, featuring more fan appeal than ever. The best deal in Motorsports just got even better featuring even more bang for your buck as your $100 ticket purchase/donation to the Tyler County Firefighters Association will not only get you entered into the high dollar mega raffle, but also include an all access pass to see Justin Moore and Colt Ford in concert and also a three-day All-Access Pit Pass to the World of Outlaw Jackpot 100 weekend at the Bullring. The 2013 Bullring Bonanza is the can’t miss event of the summer once again, featuring a family fun atmosphere and lots of great camping all weekend long at the spacious Tyler County Fairgrounds.

The monster weekend will officially kickoff on May 23, as the Bullring Bonanza will get underway in earnest with an open practice session at the speedway for the Super Late Models, Renegade of Dirt Modifieds, and Crate Late Models in preparation for the huge weekend of racing action. Also kicking off the Thursday evening program will be the EDGE HotMods and ModLites in dueling “Double Down 20’s”, with a traditional Tyler County Pit Party set to entertain following Thursday Nights action.

After last year’s rousing Friday Night concert from the Davisson Brothers and Nashville Star Craig Morgan, event planners went to work to top the 2012 Bullring Bonanza concert. A double bill of Nashville’s hottest sound will see Justin Moore and Colt Ford hit the stage on May 24 to officially kick off the 2013 Bonanza. Moore hails from the small town of Poyen, Ark., with a population of just 272 people and he wouldn’t have it any other way as he sings in his single “Small Town USA”, “If Heaven Wasn’t So Far Away” and “Backwoods” among his many hits.

The Bullring Bonanza prize drawing portion of the event will take place on May 25, beginning at noon until 4:30 p.m., with a winner every five minutes featuring prizes such as a 2013 Ford F-150, Chevy Silverado, Chevy Equinox, Ford Explorer, Polaris RZR, Harley Davidson Motorcycles, vacations, travel trailers, several ATVs, plus lots of cold hard cash to be given away leading up to one lucky winner walking away with the grand prize of a new 2013 Ford F-250 and Wildwood Travel Trailer.

Also as part of being a Bonanza ticket buyer, enjoy a free food buffet courtesy of Quinet’s Court Restaurant all day long. Many side raffles and various gun raffles will also be offered throughout the afternoon. Winners in the Bullring Bonanza prize drawings need not be present to win and each ticket may win more than once. Ticket buyers must be 18 years of age to purchase a Bonanza ticket. Children 10 and under are admitted free to all events at the speedway and Friday Night concert, but must be 18 years of age to enter the mega prize drawing area.

As part of the entertaining weekend, a two-day double header of World of Outlaw Late Model action will hit the Tyler County Speedway on Saturday and Sunday Night. The Outlaws will square off in a 30 lap $6,000 to win complete show warm up on Saturday before the main event on Sunday evening with the running of the 70 lap $15,000 to win World of Outlaw “Jackpot 100”.

The Renegades of Dirt Modified Tour will present one of the biggest modified shows east of the Mississippi as part of the historic weekend as a mammoth $40,000 purse and $7,555 awaiting the winner, while $755 will welcome those who find their way into the coveted “Let it Ride 55” main event. A Thursday practice session, Saturday Night qualifying and heat races, while Sunday being earmarked for the B-Mains, Non Qualifier Feature and Let it Ride 55 Feature event. The Crate Late Models will also be on hand on Saturday and Sunday as the best Crate Late Model racers will battle for a $2,000 to win first prize and the EDGE HotMods and ModLites will be back on Saturday and Sunday for a Feature only “Double Down 20” format based on Thursday nights results.
