The special event for Outlaw Karts will kick-off with a practice on Thursday night, before racing takes to the one-tenth mile indoor venue on Friday and Saturday. Divisions competing in the Burris Bullring Showdown include the Open 500’s, along with Open Intermediate, Sportsman, 250cc, Box Stocks and Beginner Box Stocks.
“We’re excited to bring the Burris Bullring Showdown to Red Bluff in October,” commented event Co-Promoter Colby Copeland. “We are going to start with a practice on Thursday, followed by qualifying and heat races on Friday, and then qualifier races and main events on Saturday. The format we came up with should make for good racing and award the drivers that perform well each time they hit the track. We’ve received a lot of great support from sponsors already and are continuing to gather more, which will increase the purse to an even larger number than where it is now.”
The Thursday practice is open to all classes and takes place from 3pm-8pm, starting with Box Stock mud packing at 2:30. Gates open at noon with pit passes $20 per person.
Friday’s opener will see gates open at 11am with Box Stock mud packing occurring at 1:30pm. A quick practice session for all divisions will be held at 2pm, before moving right into qualifying. Quick time will be awarded 100 points with a one-point drop through the field. After that, the program moves into eight-lap heat races, which feature an invert of six. The winner of each heat will earn 40 points with a three-point drop per position.
Saturday’s finale will see gates open at 8am with Box Stock mud packing at 9:30. A short practice for the Open division will occur at 10am, before moving into 10-lap qualifier races that will showcase an invert of eight based on points accumulated from Friday’s action.
The top-40 from Friday’s points make it into a qualifier, everyone else will be part of the lower mains. The qualifiers will award 50 points to the winner, with a four-point drop after that. Points will then be calculated up to that part in the program and the top 12 will move to the Fast 4 Media Shootout Dash, which lines up the first six rows in the A-main.
All lower mains will line up based on point totals. For the Open A-main on Saturday there will be driver intros and a Cal Cutta type auction of each driver taking place. Prior to the feature each driver will be auctioned off and if your driver goes on to win, you will get to take the whole pot of money home.
Entry fees for the event will be as follows: $100 for Opens; $80 for Open Intermediate, Sportsman and 250’s; $70 for Box Stock and Beginner Box Stock. Teams must run Burris Tires on all four corners of their kart, but there is no compound rule for any class including Sportsman. Competitors can run two classes at this race as long as they meet the requirements.
Due to ongoing COVID restrictions grandstand passes will not be sold for the Burris Bullring Showdown. Everyone attending must purchase a pit pass and be associated with somebody racing. Pit passes cost $20 on Thursday, $25 on Friday and $35 on Saturday. A two-day pit pass can be purchased for $55.
