Geared Up for Saturday
by Troy Hennig
Marysville, CA (April 20, 2017) –
Championship auto racing returns to Marysville Raceway
this Saturday night, April 22nd, as fans and drivers
are equally excited for this show. It has been three
weeks since the last time everyone gathered at the
racetrack and that usually means something spectacular
A large five division night will
feature the winged 360 sprints, dwarf cars, IMCA sport
mods, wingless sprints and economy sprints. Over 65
race cars are predicted to pack the pit area and
thrill the grandstand crowd with an action-packed
night of racing.
Marysville’s Jeremy Hawes leads
the points standing for the winged 360 sprint cars.
Hawes holds a seven-point edge over Sutter’s Tyler
Seavey. Korey Lovell, Billy Wallace and Brad Bumgarner
round out the top five.
Gary Paulson leads the
wingless point standings by one point over Cody
Spencer. With just one point race completed, the top
10 in points is very close. The wingless sprints have
been a staple at Marysville for a long time now and
continue to be one of the premiere divisions.
After two event’s Howard Law is the point leader in
the IMCA sport mod standings. Phillip Shelby is close
on Law’s heals. Jeff Bye Jr., Jerry Bartlett, Mike
Smith and Shane Devolder are all within 10 points of
the top spot. This division is so action packed and
provides some of the best racing you can watch in
The last time the Dwarf cars
showed up at Marysville they brought 28 competitors.
Four action packed heat race, a B main and a full
feature event provided a ton of great racing. Expect
the same this Saturday night.
Sprints had only five cars attend the first point race
of 2017. We are hopeful more show up on this night.
