With four more championship events left in the winged 360 sprint car season, Bobby Butler has enjoyed a solid year at Marysville Raceway. Butler has secured one win, six top ten finishes in nine starts. The consistency of solid finishes has kept Butler at the top of the points battle. Chasing him is Korey Lovell. The former 5-time champion has similar stats but is lacking a victory in 2022. Butler holds a 20-point advantage heading into the race this Saturday. Michael Wasina is also in the hunt. Wasina scored a popular win earlier this season and only trails Butler by 26-points. Two Grass Valley drivers Carson Hall and Billy Wallace round out the top five in points. Both continue to search for their first win of the season.
The Hobby Stocks are down to the final three shows of the season. Starting with this Saturday’s race, the division also races on August 6th, and concludes on August 13th. There is no denying that Howard Law has been the driver to beat all season. Law has won for of the six events this season. Second place Kyle Cheney sits 29-points back with one main event win. Zach Lindgren is right behind Cheney, just four markers back. Joe Gillock is only three-points ahead of Maurice Merrill for fourth. While Law has a decent grip on the top spot, second on back is up for grabs.
The Crate Sprints are down to their final two championship events of the season. The division races this Saturday and then comes back for their championship finale on August 27th. Things are tight at the top with Britton Bock holding a slim eight-point edge over two drivers. Both Brett Youngman and Mike Hall are tied in second with 268 total points. Add Jason Ballentine to the mix, he sits fourth, just one-point back of the two drivers tied for second, and this makes for an exciting final two races. What a surge in competition and the quantity of drivers this season in the Crate Sprints. An unprecedented 13 drivers have competed in all six point shows this year.
