FIVE CLASSES OF STOCK CARS SATURDAY AT PERRIS AUTO SPEEDWAY!
(Perris, CA, July 17, 2012)
This Saturday night, July 21st, the popular PASSCAR Stock Car Series returns to Perris Auto Speedway with five separate classes of race cars competing on the famous half-mile oval and the track's inner quarter mile circuit. The Oil Twins Amsoil Street Stocks, Modifieds and Super Stocks will be racing on the bigger track while the Pick-A-Part American Factory Stocks and Sport Mods will battle it out on the smaller one. Spectator gates will open at 5:00 PM with racing at 6:00.
Saturday's race for the Oil Twins Amsoil Street Stocks will be their last warm up for the final two rounds of the "1-800LoanMart PASSCAR Street Stock Challenge" on the 1st and 22nd of September. Riverside's Sean Estes, who had not raced on the dirt in several years, has a commanding 42-point lead over two-time track champion Henry Wesolowski in the Street Stock point standings. Estes, who drives a Chevrolet Camaro, has won two of the first five races this season.
In the Modifieds, Anaheim veteran John Crow has a 19-point advantage over four-time PAS champ Alan Updyke of Tustin. Updyke has won three of the first five races of the year, but has been knocked out early in the other two.
Eric Evans, of National City, is dominating the Super Stock Class with wins in all four of the races staged thus far in 2012. Therefore, he has the lead in the class and in the overall PASSCAR championship (all 5 classes combined) standings as well. Joseph Altig, of Imperial Beach, who won the Super Stock championship in 2012, is 32 points behind the Evans heading into Saturday's affair.
The tightest race thus far features two of the track's most popular drivers. In the Pick-A-Part American Factory Stocks, 2010 champion Steven "Bam Bam" Fangmeyer holds a one-point lead over 14-year-old Nathan Deragon of El Cajon. At the last race on June 23rd, the well spoken Deragon scored his first ever win at the famous Riverside County clay oval.
In the Sport Mod class, a pair of seasoned Southern California veterans sit on top of the heap. Costa Mesa's J.D. Wilson, a retired airline pilot who was a fan favorite at Ascot, leads past Orange Show Speedway and Corona Raceway champion Johnny Lathrop, of Corona, by 41-points.
Tickets will be $12.00 for adults. Active military members with proper id, teens age 13-18 with their school id and kids 6-12 get in for just $5.00. Children 5 and under get in for free.
The entire 2012 PAS schedule is listed at the end of this release.
