Keepin’ it Short – Small Racing for Big Cash in Bullard Texas

Mini Outlaw Sprint Karts are growing in popularity across the United States. They have been hugely popular in California for a long time and their notoriety and fan interest is spreading to the four corners of the country. Like most other classes of racing, there are several big races scattered across the calendar that entice drivers from around the country to make special trips in order to compete against the best in the sport. This weekend that race will take place at Cactus Speedway in Bullard Texas as the best Mini Outlaw Sprint Kart drivers in the country descend to the southeastern part of the state to compete for $5,000 to win.

Mini Outlaw Sprint Karts are high powered racing machines that put on spectacular shows on pint sized race tracks. They are a sprint kart frame with a roll cage, a full sized wing on top of the cage, a 500CC engine and a driver who is fearless. The power to weight ratio of a Mini Outlaw is the same as a full size 410 Outlaw Sprint Car. Qualifying speeds on a 1/5 mile dirt track will exceed 72 miles per hour.

Cactus Speedway is the epitome of a family run race track. Tommy and Susan Terry own Cactus Speedway. They operate it with Tommy’s parents Tom and Barbara. Along with the elder Terry’s the rest of the Terry clan helps out, along with an extensive array of volunteers that make the races a huge success. When you roll into the front gate, Eva welcomes you with a great attitude and a warm smile. Grandma’s Wagon Wheel is run by Barbara who will feed you just like you’re at Grandma’s for dinner. Tom III runs tech and is in charge of all of the safety around the track. The voice you will hear over the public address system is TJ Smith. The fourth generation of Tommys at the track will generally be in the flag stand while Tommy V is normally preparing his karts to run in the races. Cathy and Katherine have the unenviable task of scoring the races but the word is they do a tremendous job. The scales are operated by Mr. Neil who also oversees the Pit Shack. Finally Robert keeps everything flowing smoothly on the grid. Aside from these members of the Terry ensemble, there are many more volunteers who make racing at Cactus a special experience.

Some of the drivers who are heading to Cactus this weekend include Jimmy Elledge, Nick Hoffman, Colby Copeland, Tyler Seavey, Logan Seavey, Morgan Sandhagen, Jake Parks, Buddy Kofoid and Tommy Brown. The interlopers will be taking on the hot shoes from Cactus including Michael Stout and Kade Taylor. If you’re in the Tyler, Texas area Friday or Saturday, take the trip to Bullard and check out the Mini Outlaw Sprint action at Cactus. You won’t be disappointed.
