The Ultimate Sandcar Challenge is looking forward to messing up the Fairplex Park infield. Friday and Saturday, June 23-24, is when the sandcar dirt dervish debuts at Fairplex, on a freestyle course designed to bring head-to-head competition up close and personal. Promoters have moved to Fairplex this year after a two-year stint in San Bernardino.
This event features a new location and two separate matched tracks, and the exciting introduction of the “Ultimate Rhino Challenge.” Bracket racing with the newest thing to hit the dirt— Yamaha, 4-wheel drive, pumped-to-the-hilt golf carts that allow the drivers to pit Rhino against Rhino for the best time on the track and ultimate bragging rights.
It is the return of stadium racing, and it’s all action, all fun and all competitive—
it’s two days under the lights with a purse of $5,000 on the line. Jeff Quinn, last year’s champion, and challengers Dale Dondale and Mike Majesky, are among the competitors seeking the coveted 2006 title.
Hours for the dirt-flying action on Friday, June 23 are 4-9 p.m., and 11 a.m.-
9 p.m. on Saturday, June 24. Friday general admission seating is $10, ages 6-12 $6 and free for ages 5 and younger. Saturday prices for adults $15, ages 6-12 $10, free for ages 5 and younger. Two-day tickets are $22 for adults and $14 for ages 6-12.
Tickets are on sale now at www.sandchallenge.com and www.fairplex.com. Parking is at Gate 17 on Fairplex Dr.
