Inside Line Promotions - HIGHLANDS, Texas (Oct. 6, 2020) - Channin Tankersley is looking to back up his victory at Monarch Motor Speedway this Saturday during a Sprint Car Bandits event.
The Old School Racing driver recorded his first career win during his most recent visit to the dirt oval in Wichita Falls, Texas, on May 9.
"I just hope we can do decent," he said. "We're looking at trying to have a strong weekend. There's been times this year we've had really good speed and times we've struggled. We're trying to power through it."
Tankersley's most recent appearance at the oval produced a clean sweep as he won both a heat race and the main event.
"It's a really nice facility," he said. "It's more like 'The Ditch' with more of an Eldora facility. I think it used to be like a NASCAR asphalt track that they converted to dirt. It's like a small quarter mile. It has moderate banking. It has some width to it so you're not all over people."
Tankersley enters Saturday's show ranked fifth in the Sprint Car Bandits championship standings despite not attending all of the races this season. He has two triumphs - winning at Heart O' Texas Speedway in Waco, Texas, on July 10 to go along with the victory at Monarch Motor Speedway - in four starts with the series this year. His two other results were third and second, respectively.
