FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Championship Night This Saturday
Marysville, CA (Aug 27, 2018) – Six months of hard work and determination all comes down to one final night of racing at Marysville Raceway this Saturday, September 1st. What started back in March will come to a dramatic conclusion and be decided on the track. The Raceway will crown four individual champions during the night. The winged 360 sprint cars, IMCA Sport Mods, Crate Sprints and Hobby Stocks are the four division on hand.
This is a must see show and the final Saturday night weekly point race. Starting near the end of September the Raceway will return with special shows like the Dwarf Car Nationals, Monster Trucks and Taxi Cab Open.
The pit gate will open at 3 PM while the front grandstand gate opens at 5 PM. Race cars on the track at 6 PM for wheel pack.
Adult admission into the grandstands is $13.00. Juniors, seniors and military with ID are just $11.00. Kids 6-11 are $6 and five and under are FREE. As always, parking is FREE.
Reno’s Mike Monahan leads Chico’s Kenny Allen by 13 championship points in the winged 360 sprint car division. During the last two weeks of racing, Allen has gained 14-points. However, he will need that many in one night of racing. Mathematically, it is possible, but Allen will need to win every event on Saturday night to close the gap and have a shot to win it all. Defending track champion Jeremy Hawes looks to finish out the season third in points but more importantly, go for his third win of the season. Hawes won the 25-lap feature event the last time the sprint cars hit the track. Upwards of 16 winged sprint cars should be in attendance.
The Crate Sprint championship is as close as any championship battle we have seen in recent years at the raceway. The top three drivers are separated by just two-points. Cameron Haney leads Jaylon Deas and Mike Sayre by two-points. Sayre and Deas are tied for second. If all three are tied in points after the main event, the first tie-breaker is most main event wins. If neither of them wins the race, then the championship would be Deas because he has won a main event earlier this year. This season long point battle won’t be decided until the 20th and final lap of the main event this Saturday night. It will be a show that you don’t want to miss.
The Hobby Stock title is also up for grabs. Shannon Collins does have a commanding lead, yet, the drivers second and third each have a mathematical chance to win it all. Collins holds a 14-point lead over Mel Byers. Jeremiah Creedon sits in third, just one-point back of Myers and 15 points back of Collins. Kyle Cheney is 19-points back of Collins and would need numerous things to happen for him to have a shot at the championship. Cheney has been solid with three main event wins this year. The Hobby Stock division has given the fans numerous nights of great close racing. The division has also had a resurgence of competitors in 2018.
The IMCA Sport Mod championship is between two drivers. Point leader Damian Merritt is 15 markers ahead of Jimmy Ford. Merritt has two main event wins. Ford has one. Merritt’s advantage over Ford comes from being perfect this season finishing inside the top five all eight times we have raced main events this season for the Sport Mods. Ford has six top five finishes. Howard Law sits in third while Mike Merritt is in fourth. Andrew Peckham has missed three shows but still is in fifth.
