Who are the best drivers in track history at Benton County Speedway "The Bullring?"

Race fans are about to have their say.

An interactive competition will pit the best drivers in track history head-to-head throughout the entire off-season, allowing race fans their chance to vote on who they feel are the best racers in speedway history.

Drivers in the Modified, Stock Car, SportMod, Hobby Stock and Sport Compact divisions were compiled based on their achievements in weekly racing history on the Vinton oval. One point was awarded for each feature win and five points were awarded for each track championship.

The drivers were then seeded based on those point totals and bracketed for competition.

Due to the longer histories the Modifieds and Hobby Stocks have had at the speedway, more drivers were included in those divisions. The range of accomplishments in those divisions led to 28 drivers in each qualifying for the single elimination tournament.

The Stock Cars produced 16 qualifiers, SportMods 14 and Sport Compacts 12.

All track champions automatically qualified for the competition.

New match-ups will be posted each Monday on the track's Facebook page @BCSBullRing. Fans will have from Monday through the following Sunday at noon CST to cast their votes. A driver bio will be included with each match-up to highlight their career accomplishments at the speedway as fans consider who they think is worthy of moving on to the next round.

Voting will be completed by using the react emojis on the Facebook post that includes each match-up. At the time of the noon Sunday deadline, the driver with the most votes will automatically move on to the next round.

The competition kicks off Monday, September 27, with first round voting in Hobby Stocks. New head-to-head battles will be posted every Monday through the first day of voting for the final main event on Monday, March 28. A complete schedule of the competition is listed below.

The final four drivers remaining in each division will qualify for their respective feature event. Voting for those five main events will be conducted over the final month of the competition. Overall champions will be recognized next spring when the speedway opens for the 2022 season.
