Boles goes back-to-back with another Bandit win in Virginia


(Fairlawn, VA April 2018) – There’s no stopping Allen Boles (#3) at this point in the Minimizer Bandit Big Rig Series season.


Two feature races, two wins for the Jupiter Motorsports veteran.


“I didn’t know what was going to happen,” Boles said.  “I gave it all I had.”


Boles held off last year’s champion, Ricky Rude (#14), to capture his second straight checkered flag Saturday at Motor Mile Speedway in Fairlawn, Virginia.


“(Allen) had a great night,” Rude said.  “We’ve been friends forever and there’s always a little bumping between us.  I wish I could’ve caught him but it just wasn’t my night.”

A major wreck featuring Marshall Davis (#41), Craig Kruckeberg (#55) and Mike Morgan (#88) caused a yellow flag and lengthy delay during lap eight of the feature race.  Davis’ truck got loose entering turn three, causing him to send Kruckeberg into the wall.  Morgan had no place to go and the result forced both Kruckeberg and Morgan to end their night early.


“Just a racing incident that ended badly for the #55 and #88,” Bandit Technical Director Brian Madsen said.


“All I remember is going to the outside and then all of a sudden my back end was in the wall,” Kruckeberg said.  “I’ll have to take some Advil tomorrow, but I’m doing good.”


Once the race was re-started, Boles took advantage, passing Mark Noble (#74) immediately before setting his sights on the leader, Mr. Rude.


“I was just praying that I could get around him.  Thankfully, I did and I was able to hang on, so I’ll take that $10,000 check!” Boles said, laughing.


The only thing Boles couldn’t win was the Bandit Shoot Out, which saw the Bandits go one-on-one for just one lap.  The final came down to Boles and Justin Ball, making his season debut.  Ball used the inside position to his advantage, winning his first-ever Shoot Out.


“The Bandit Shoot Out continues to be a huge hit.  Fans were on their feet cheering throughout,” Madsen said.


“At every single Bandit event, kids are selected to represent a Bandit in the Shoot Out.  If their Bandit wins, that kid wins $100,” Bandit General Manager Jason Johnson said.


Organizers expect a big turnout when the series moves to Concord Speedway in North Carolina on Saturday, May 5th.  Tickets are available online.


“It’s the first and only tri-oval track on the 2018 schedule, so it’s going to be really interesting,” Johnson said.


“This season is shaping up well,” Madsen said.  “We have some big, fast ovals like Lucas Oil Raceway, a tricky tri-oval in Concord, short tracks like Hickory and the infamous high banks of Salem.  It’s going to take a really talented Bandit to conquer them all!”

In addition to the Bandit Big Rig Series event, Concord is also hosting the Minimizer Fan Series Truck Show.


“We’ve got stuff going on all day, including the Bandit Meet-and-Greet, where fans can meet their favorite Bandits,” Johnson said.  “We’ll also have the Minimizer-Bandit seat giveaway, where a CDL holder has a chance to win an awesome truck seat.  Classic Carriers will also be on hand doing driver recruiting, so if you’re thinking of getting into trucking or looking at making a change, get down to Concord Speedway on May 5th.”


Fans can get tickets to any Bandit event in 2018 by going to the official Bandit website.
