PERRIS AUTO SPEEDWAY OPENS 18TH SEASON THIS SATURDAY!

(Perris, CA, February 26, 2013)
This Saturday night, March 2nd, Perris Auto Speedway will kick off its 18th season with the Amsoil OilTwins.com PASSCAR Stock Car Series featuring the LoanMart Street Stocks, Pick-A-Part-American Factory Stocks, Modifieds, Super Stocks and the Sport Mods. Spectator gates will open at 5:00 PM and the first green flag of the year will wave at 6:00. 

"Eighteen-seasons," promoter Don Kazarian said while shaking his head on Monday. "We have had some good years along the way, but on paper 2013 looks to be the best yet. We are going to have something for everyone."

In addition to PASSCAR, the famous Riverside County clay oval is the home of one of the nation's premiere Sprint Car Series, the Amsoil USAC/CRA Sprint Cars. They will make their 2013 PAS debut on March 9th along with The PAS Senior Sprints (for drivers 45 and older) and the California Lightning Sprints Cars, who also call The PAS their home track. The PAS Young Gun 360 Sprint Car Series for drivers age 14-21, presented by The Sprint Car Driving Experience, will makes it's debut on April 6th. 

The legendary World of Outlaws Sprint Cars will be making their only greater Los Angeles appearance at The PAS on April 13th. 

The increasingly popular "Nights of Destruction" will return for their third straight year for four shows. The first one will be on April 27th.

In addition to the season openers and the World of Outlaws, much to the delight of Kazarian, the track has several other big events that highlight the calendar.

"Last year we had a good schedule at the start of the season, but it got better before the end of the year when we added the LoanMart Street Stock Turkey Bowl and the Turkey Night Grand Prix," Kazarian said. "Those two events are already on the schedule this year and so is the annual Firecracker 30 and Sky Concert on July 4th. Another big deal for us this year is the Budweiser Oval Nationals returning to a three night affair. We will have the USAC West Coast and Southwestern Sprint Series' on Halloween night followed the next two nights by the USAC National and CRA Sprint Cars. Fans asked us for the Oval Nationals to return to three nights and we have obliged."

Highlighting this Saturday's PASSCAR opener will be the LoanMart Street Stocks. Each night they race during the regular season, the winner will take home $1,000.00. The series drew a lot of attention and extra competitors in 2012 and the field is expected to draw even more cars in 2013. Riverside's Sean Estes won the Street Stock Crown last year.

2012 PAS champions John Crow of Anaheim in the Modifieds, Riverside's Dave Vrett in the Pick-A-Part American Factory Stocks, National City's Eric Evans in the Super Stocks and longtime veteran JD Wilson of Costa Mesa in the Sport Mods, are all expected to be in action at Saturday's season opener.
