Rhett Carter Captures First Win of 2018; Golden Isles on Deck

Blackshear, Georgia (04/18/18) – It’s been a challenging start to the 2018 season for Rhett Carter and his team. However, they got things turned in the right direction on Friday night with a victory at Oglethorpe Speedway Park with their Continental Tire #44 Swamp Fox Insurance Agency/ XR1 Rocket Chassis / Wildcat Performance Engines Late Model.

“Man, it’s felt like we’ve had a bullseye on our back to start this season, because we’ve perpetually been in the wrong place at the wrong time,” Carter said. “It felt great to get the win on Friday at Oglethorpe. Honestly, we should’ve had two wins this weekend, but a lapped car got us on Saturday night at Waycross. I still consider the weekend a net positive though, and hopefully we’ve got things back on track.”

Friday night found Rhett Carter in action at Oglethorpe Speedway Park (Pooler, Georgia) as he entered a Weekly Racing Series Event. Earning the second-starting position for the feature via preliminary events, Rhett topped the 17-car field to capture his first win of the season. Branden Yawn and Bob Robertson completed the podium finishers.

The following night took the team to Waycross Motor Speedway (Waycross, Georgia) for a $3,000-to-win event. Rhett locked his spot into the main event by registering the fastest time overall in qualifying. After jumping out to a sizeable early lead, Carter got his right-rear tire cut down after contact with a lapped car, ending his night early.

Swindell Set for Season Debut With World of Outlaws This Weekend

Inside Line Promotions - GERMANTOWN, Tenn. (April 18, 2018) - Sammy Swindell will make his 410ci winged sprint car season debut this weekend with the World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series.

Swindell and car owner A.G. Rains received a rebuilt engine this week and will put it to the test on Friday at Riverside International Speedway in West Memphis, Ark. If all goes well the team will head to Federated Auto Parts Raceway at I-55 in Pevely, Mo., on Saturday for the Spring Classic. Assuming that night is positive, the weekend will wrap up on Sunday at Tri-State Speedway in Haubstadt, Ind.

"The goal is always the same," Swindell said. "We go there with the intention of winning. You take what you have and do the best with what you've got and hopefully it's enough."

Swindell was victorious during a World of Outlaws race at Riverside International Speedway in 1981. He's won Outlaws events at Federated Auto Parts Raceway at I-55 in 1990, 1991, 1997 and 2014. And Swindell has driven to World of Outlaws wins at Tri-State Speedway in 1988, 1992, 1997, 1998 and 2011.

That experience is what is helping develop the Rains owned No. 3 sprint car from a winning 360ci winged sprint car team to a contender in the 410ci ranks.

"We ran three or four nights last year and every time things improved," Swindell said. "These cars were built for a 360 and we've made a couple of changes for the 410. The shock program was geared more toward the 360 tires and stuff so I was able to get to where I can build the shocks. My first deal was there in Charlotte (at the end of last season) and everything went nice. It's kind of a progression and it's been positive each time.

"There's 200 more horsepower and almost 100 pounds less. The rear tires are different. So all that changes things (between 360 and 410 sprint cars). It's trying to find out what everything likes with the settings on the car and even the motor. We've made changes every time we've run it."

Swindell has earned six top fives in seven 360ci winged sprint car starts this season.
