This series allows young race car drivers to bridge the gap between go karts and legends cars.  A bandolero car requires a lot more technique and maneuvering than a go kart, but lacks the power of a legend car, which creates a great learning opportunity for drivers in the series as they develop their skills.  Participants may be as young as eight years old.

The bandoleros on the 0.25-mile mini oval which is located between turns 1 and 2 on the NHMS oval.  They often race Saturday evening throughout the summer and stack the schedule with the Sign Works Oval Series.  Some of the series' more advanced drivers have been known to pull double-duty on race evenings with the legends and bandolero cars.
