About Bandolero Racing...
Bandolero car racing is a type of entry-level racing in the United States. Many bandolero car drivers move into Legends racing and Thunder roadster racing. Cars can reach in excess of 70 mph, but do not accelerate very quickly. The cars are built like miniature stock cars, with a tube frame and sheet metal cage. Drivers enter through the roof of the vehicle. Most drivers range from 8 to 16 years old, but older drivers can also race. The cars race on 1/4 mile, 3/8 mile and 4/10 mile ovals and also road courses and dirt tracks. Currently, there are 2 or 3 divisions in Bandolero racing. For example, Beginner Bandits are the same as bandits but are awarded fewer points.
The Video below is not of Alex, but gives you an idea of what a Bandolero Car looks like and how it runs...
Ever since holding Tony Stewart's helmet (he was afraid to wear it...) at the tender age of 3, Alex Cognac has envisioned himself behind the wheel of a race car.
In 2009 he began his race career in road course Karting and is looking forward to the 2011 Bandolero race season. Alex (A.K.A The X-Man) is 12, loves the Panthers, Red Sox and racing, whether it's on an Oval, a Kart road course or with his buddies in their dune buggies.
