Banal Scores Tribal Nationals Victory


(Gaffney, SC) Fighting through a challenging season of ups and downs, Steve Banal scored his first series victory of the season Saturday night at Cherokee Speedway. The 2017 FUEL Racing Series champion started 6th, methodically worked his way into the runner up position, and paced the field the rest of the way after inheriting the lead when Anthony Sanders experienced terminal mechanical failure. The $2500 victory came at the perfect time for Banal as the series heads into the season finale.

Spartanburg, South Carolina’s Anthony Sanders topped the charts in Renegade Race Fuels Time Trials and was joined on the front row by Adam Yarbrough as Brian Carswell, championship leader Robbie Emory, and series veteran Chuck Smith rounded out the Top 5.

In the Direct Racing Industry Virtual Expo Main Event, Sanders seized control of the event from the drop of the green. As the pursuing drivers behind him shuffled positions, Sanders established a comfortable margin ahead of his nearest pursuers. Thanks to a smooth surface and multiple racing grooves, several positions were traded back-and-forth through the early and middle stages of the event. Carswell and Ramey remained solid while Banal and Brandon White charged toward the front. Shortly after Banal took advantage of a mid-race restart to vault into 2nd, misfortune struck the race leader as Sanders lost power while leading with just under 10 laps remaining. The fast qualifier’s heartbreak immediately became the defending series champion’s opportunity. Though Banal would inherit the lead, his path to victory was definitely not secured. Rookie of the Year contender Brandon White was eyeing his first career series victory and pulled alongside Banal on two occasions in the closing laps. Banal would hold for the victory over White as Ramey, Carswell, and Yarbrough rounded out the Top 5.

Up next for FUEL is the 2018 series finale featuring our October 19th & 20th trip to County Line Raceway for the $5000 To Win / $500 To Start RACE FOR THE KIDS!

FUEL Introduces CT525 Rebuild Program

After considerable research and multiple discussions with longtime series partner City Chevrolet, FUEL Racing Series officials have agreed to introduce a CT525 Engine Rebuild Program. The announcement of this program provides an option for the CT525 engine owner that is approved for FUEL Racing Series competition and takes effect immediately.

"Our partners at City Chevrolet continue to support FUEL and the introduction of this CT525 Engine Rebuild Program is just another example of their commitment to our growth" explained FUEL Racing Series Director Jason Atkins. "First and foremost, we knew that our CT525 competitors needed a series approved option to repair their engines. Our steel block engine competitors have the option to repair their engines and our CT525 teams deserve that very same opportunity. With the creation of this program, CT525 teams now have a way to get series approved repairs to their engines and are not forced to purchase a new engine in order to compete in FUEL Racing Series events. In order to preserve the integrity of this process, a binding contract between the series and approved engine rebuilder has been secured. Any series approved CT525 engine rebuilds will be certified with documentation and FUEL Racing Series Seals."

At this time and upon recommendation from our partners at City Chevrolet, FUEL Racing Series approved rebuilds are only available at Lamb Racing Engines. The Inman, South Carolina business has a long standing partnership with City Chevrolet and the series. For more information, please contact Lamb Racing Engines representative Kenny Lamb at 864-578-9508
