By Chuck Corder

Jim Hanks has seen sprint cars whizzing past him for nearly 20 years.

And Hanks believes Pensacola fans could bear witness to another watershed night when Five Flags Speedway opens its 2013 program when the grandstands open at 5 p.m. Friday.

The pits open at 2 p.m. and admission is as follows: $20, adults; $15, seniors, military and students; $10, children 6-11; and free, under-6.
