Anderson Speedway this season. Terry Malone Jr. and Bobby Long will combine
full-time in the Figure 8 division. Malone will race on the Oval with
Long behind the wheel on the Figure 8.

both the Oval and Figure 8 championships. He captured the 2005 ThunderCar Figure
8 title aboard Herb Rose’s No. 66. He collected five feature wins and 16
top-five finishes en route to his title season.
In the 2002 season, Malone earned the ThunderCar Oval championship and has
amassed nine career victories.

is the current ThunderCar Oval victory leader with 14 checkered flags and has
scored two Saturday Night Figure 8 victories.
