FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Championship Starts This Saturday Night
Marysville, CA (March 13, 2019) – This Saturday, March 16th, the sights and sounds of grassroots short track racing will once again dominate the quarter-mile Marysville Raceway dirt track. Four divisions will embark on a night of important championship point aspirations for these teams. Two of the divisions, Crate Sprints and IMCA Pepsi Sport Mods, earned championship points last Saturday night during the Sherm and Loree Toller Memorial. It will be opening night for the winged 360 sprints and Super Stocks.
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.
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. A family pass for $40 gets two adults and two juniors or three kids 11 and under into the grandstands. As always, parking is FREE.
By winning the exciting 20-lap IMCA Pepsi Sport Mod main event this past Saturday, Pittsburg, CA driver Keith Brown sits on top of the weekly point standings. He holds a slim one-point edge over fellow Pittsburg resident Guy Ahlwardt. The next three in points are led by local standouts Brian Cooper, Jimmy Ford and Todd Cooper. Eighteen drivers competed during the opening night ceremonies for the Sport Mods.
Grass Valley’s Bret Youngman finds himself in first place going into week two for the Crate Sprint Car division. He holds a one-point edge over last week’s main event winner Darren Johnson. Cameron Haney Jr. and Mike Sayre are both locked into a third-place tie.
Auburn’s Andy Forsberg will look to repeat his win this past Saturday at Marysville. With a rare Saturday night free, Forsberg and team will support Marysville again. A majority of the other winged 360 sprint cars and Super Stocks will make their debut this weekend. As of now Reno’s Mike Monahan will look to defend his 2018 track title in the winged sprint cars. Locally, the Lovell Bros. Racing team and former champion Jeremey Hawes always are near the front. Auburn’s Jimmy Stewart and Grass Valley’s Pat Harvey are also expected. Limited Late Models are now allowed to run with the Super Stocks. This addition will hopefully expand the Super Stocks field of drivers able to compete with them on Saturday nights.
