FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Kenny Allen and Jeremy Hawes Continue Their Rivalry
Marysville, CA (Aug 15, 2018) – The season long point championship battle is coming down to the wire. Including this Saturday night, August 18th, there is just two more races left. As the temperature continued to rise this past month, so has the intensity on track. Defending track champion Jeremy Hawes and Chico’s Kenny Allen are two drivers who have had issues in the winged 360 sprint car division. Both drivers have had on track altercations with each other that have led to both getting points taken away. While they both admit they are ready to put things behind them and move on, one can only imagine what the outcome would be if both are racing for the lead on the final lap of this upcoming Saturday night main event. Hawes and Allen lead the charge of winged 360 sprint car drivers into this Saturday night.
This Saturday night the Marysville Raceway is offering a food and drink discount. Adults 21 and older will have the chance to buy $2 beer and the concession stand will offer $1 hot dogs.
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.
This season Marysville Raceway has entertained a lot of first time winners. This past Saturday night, Brent Bjork led all 25-laps to win his first career winged 360 sprint car main event. Bjork was joyful in victory lane. Bjork will return to try and make it two for two. Kenny Allen gained 10 championship points on Mike Monahan last weekend. Allen has cut the lead to 17. Hawes sits in the third spot some 47-points back of Monahan. Billy Wallace and rookie sensation Alec Justeson round out the top five.
Blackout Fight Gear & Apparel has come on board the rest of the season to sponsor the winged 360 sprint car qualifying. The nights fastest qualifier will earn $100 from Blackout Fight Gear & Apparel.
With consistent finishes this past Saturday night, Jaylon Deas is the new point leader in the Crate Sprint Car Division. Deas leads Cameron Haney by two points. Mike Sayre is right there and only six points back of Deas. If any of these three drivers tie for the championship, the first tie breaker is main event wins. As of now, Deas has one win while Haney and Sayre have zero. Jeff Macedo picked up his second win of the season last weekend. He is 25-points back of Deas and would need a Hail-Mary to catch him.
How good has the Hobby Stock division been at Marysville Raceway this season? Real good if you judge the car counts we have been getting. Last week 15 drivers showed up to put on a great race. Shannon Collins leads the division over Mel Byers by 12-points. Jeremiah Creedon is 15-points back of Collins. Kyle Cheney and Brian Compton put on a great finish to the main event last Saturday night. The Van Roekels have been an added surprise the last few weeks also.
Chris Warner holds a 52-point lead over James Castleberry in the Super Stock division. The real battle is between Castleberry and Rod Oliver. Only three-points separate these two for second. Super Stocks will have one more point race scheduled for September 22.
