Hamlin Motorsports is gearing up for the Rudd Racing Engines Six Shooter Showdown presented by Mr. Wendell’s Motorsports on April 22-24 at Xtreme Raceway Park.
FERRIS, TX – The Hamlin family has always made waves in the motorsports industry, but they will be taking it to the next level through big money bracket race promotion. Their roots in racing run deep with experience not only behind the wheel but also behind the scenes working at some of the largest events in drag racing.
Paige Hamlin along with husband, Scooter, and father-in-law, Daryl, will work together to bring the Rudd Racing Engines Six Shooter Showdown presented by Mr. Wendell’s Motorsports to Xtreme Raceway Park on April 22-24, 2022.
A Word from the Promotion Team
Paige explains her reasoning by saying, “Texas needs a race like this…something that’s for racers by racers. Scooter has implemented most of the race structure and we have learned a lot from other great promoters that I’ve had the privilege to work with. My first race last year was a success with the support of our racers, and we’re excited to thank them this year with the Six Shooter Showdown! That includes guaranteed payouts and round money as well as a ton of prizes, thanks to our amazing marketing partners.”
Plenty of Prizes
The Six Shooter Showdown features nine chances to cash in over three days of racing boasting the highest paying round money in Texas and guaranteed payouts. Hamlin Motorsports developed strong partnerships with multiple prominent businesses to provide a large assortment of prizes for their racers. Every main event winner will take home their own 10X custom cowboy hat courtesy of Double00ShitShow, while Apple Girl Art will supply a custom trophy to the Chicks on Slicks Ladies Street Shootout winner and to the $20K Box Shootout winner sponsored by Compressed Air Supercharging.
Main Event winners in Box and No Box will also receive gift certificates to Protorque and Boninfante Friction that can be redeemed through Mr. Wendell’s Motorsports. Josh Reynolds, of The Paint Shack, has designed a custom painted plate to be awarded to each main event winner as well as sponsoring the Best Appearing Car Award. The racer who illuminates the most win lights in main event competition over the weekend will earn the AMS Oil MVP Award. This feat will earn them a $150 gift certificate to AMS Oil and a $150 gift certificate to Mr. Wendell’s Motorsports.
Competitive Suspension presents the “Wanted: Another Shot” cookie for each competitor who loses the first round but chooses to try their luck again in the re-entry round. Lonestar Sign & Design will pay $100 to the Last Motorcycle Standing each day. Additionally, if a bike rolls into the main event winner’s circle, they will take home a $500 bonus courtesy of Baugh’s Out Racing.
Scotty’s Racing Transmissions will pay $150 for the Hard Luck Award as well as sponsoring the $100 Bounty Award on Saturday and Sunday. RLR Diesel is on board to pay $500 to the Long-Haul Award winner, for those on the fence about stretching their odometers toward Texas.
Saturday and Sunday also included Special Performance awards, such as Texas Grafix Plus paying $100 to the first driver to execute a perfect reaction time. The first racer who runs dead-on their dial in each day will earn $100, a laser engraved plaque, and a $500 gift certificate to CenTex Laser Engraving & Embroidery.

Numerous round prizes courtesy of May Race Carbs, Competitive Suspension, Wild Willy Fuel Fragrance, Boninfante Friction, Protorque, Going Bracket Racing, Precision Race Fuels, and Burrow Motorsports will be up for grabs during each day of competition.

Eight randomly selected drivers will be drawn to compete in the free Shootout which pays $500 to win, $200 to the runner up, $100 to the semifinalists, and $25 to those who lose first round.
Thanks to the support of Texas Trailer Man, the No Box main event purses were increased from last year’s event where Saturday’s winner will earn $5,000 and Sunday’s winner earns $2,500. They will also sponsor the No Box High Roller option where drivers can essentially double down on their skills to earn extra round money and the chance to move into Box competition once they win the bottom bulb side.
The Best Deal Services Box racers will compete for $10,000 to win on Compressed Air Supercharging Saturday and $5,000 on Lonestar Sign & Design Sunday during the main event races. The on-track action heats up on Friday with the Pro 1 Racing & Safety Gamblers Race, but early attendees can cash in during Thursday’s Practice Tree Race.
