Last Saturday night, fans were treated to a great show with 19-winged sprint cars, 20 Dwarfs and 10 Limited Late Models. It was great to see families back in the grandstands and enjoying live entertainment. This Saturday night, April 10th, the winged 360 sprint cars, Hobby Stocks and IMCA Sport Mods are the three divisions scheduled to delight the assembled crowd.
Grass Valley’s Billy Wallace has been the most consistent sprint car driver this season and leads the championship point season by 11-points over Cotati’s Jake Haulot. Last Saturday night, Haulot led all 25-laps to get the win. Grass Valley’s Pat Harvey, Auburn’s Andy Forsberg and Yuba City’s Kevin Lovell are locked into the top five of points.
Howard Law sits atop the Hobby Stock point standings. Law won the most recent 20-lap feature event and holds a 12-point edge over David Cooper, Hollis Thackery and Jesse Van Roekel. The allure of this divisions stems from the competitiveness as three drivers are tied for second. Opening night winner, Keith Ross, and Jacob Johnson are tied for fifth.
April 10th will mark the second appearance of the IMCA Sport Mods. Phillip Shelby won the first race and looks to be the favorite again. Les Friend is only one point behind. Jimmy Ford sits in the third spot. Tyler Rodgers and Justin Funkhouser complete the top five.
Pit gate for the competitors will open at 3 PM. Front grandstand gate will open at 5 PM. Cars will hit the action-packed quarter-mile oval dirt track around 6 PM. Qualifying, heat races and main events will serve as the nights format.
