Tyler County Speedway

All systems go for Tyler County's Bullring Bonanza

From track reports

Less than a month remains before Tyler County Speedway hosts the inaugural Bullring Bonanza May 25-26, and all systems are on go for the biggest event in the history of the quarter-mile oval in Middleburg, W.Va.

The two-day megaevent on Memorial Day weekend will culminate with Saturday’s $25,000-to-win Jackpot 100 for the World of Outlaws Late Model Series, but there will be plenty of other festivities to keep fans entertained throughout the entire weekend.

Along with concerts by country music acts Craig Morgan and the Davisson Brothers Band, the weekend offers great food, camping and the chance for fans to win more than $700,000 in cash and prizes all while helping to raise money for the Tyler County Firefighters Association. Bullring Bonanza details:

Giveaways: In a series of lottery-style drawings, the Tyler County Firefighters Association will give away more than $700,000 in cash, prizes, including a $50,000 grand prize, several new Ford and Chevrolet vehicles, four new Harley-Davidson motorcycles, vacations getaways, campers and so much more. Each of the 10,000 general admission tickets has a four-digit number. Beginning at 11 a.m. Saturday, May 26, bingo-style drawing machines will randomly select from these numbers, and the matching ticket for each drawing wins the associated prize. Ticketholders do not need to be present to win. Other opportunities to win include side raffles, games, 50/50 chances and more.

Share the wealth: Fans who already have a ticket are encouraged to pass along the summers’ biggest event order form to family, friends and coworkers and experience the fun, food, entertainment and chance to win big at the Bonanza. They do not have to present to win prizes.
