HIGH SCHOOL SENIOR READY FOR SATURDAY’S PERRIS 19TH SEASON OPENER!
(Perris, CA, February 25, 2014) Weather permitting, when Perris Auto Speedway opens its 19th season this Saturday, March 1st, one of the drivers to keep a close eye on is Citrus Hill High School senior Dalton Everhart. The second generation racer from Perris will be contesting his first full season in the tough PASSCAR Modified class. In addition to the Modifieds, the Street Stocks, Super Stocks, American Factory Stocks and CDCRA Dwarf Cars will also be in action on Saturday. Spectator gates will open at 5:00 PM and the first race will take the season opening green flag at 6:00.

The talented young racer has honed his skills in the Street Stock class on the famous Riverside County half-mile clay oval. Among the others that he competed against in that class were his father and mother, Jake and Ronnie Everhart. Last season they purchased a potent Modified from veteran racer David Lord. The capable teen driver got his first two races in it near the end of the year and recorded a couple of impressive finishes.

“I got into a couple modified races last year and got a third and a fourth,” the soft spoken teen said while practicing at the track last Saturday. “I plan to capitalize on those finishes and get off to a good start this year.”

Compared to a street stock, the modified is a totally different animal. It is a purpose built race car that is much more temperamental and much harder to drive. This has not been lost on Everhart as he embarks on his first full season in the class.

“There is a big difference in the power and the throttle control,” he said. “In the street stocks you just floor it and drive around. In these cars you have to have good throttle control. It is way more technical and it shows how good of a driver you are in these things because they are tough to drive.”

For the racer, who turned 19-years old on Monday, it has been nothing but school and racecars this off season. After classes he is straight out into the shop to work on his Modified, his mom’s Street Stock and his dad’s Figure 8 car. And, that is the way he likes it.

“Every single day after school I go home and work on the cars,” said the competitor who is chomping at the bit waiting for this week’s opener. “I took the motor of my car and put it all back together. I basically rebuilt my mom’s car. I can’t wait to see how they do.”

One big advantage with the modified is most tracks have the same rules for them and Everhart hopes to make some races at Barona, Bakersfield and Las Vegas on nights when he is not racing at The PAS.

One of the people who is pleased to see Everhart move up is Perris Auto Speedway promoter Don Kazarian.

“We have literally watched Dalton grow up at the races,” the promoter offered with a laugh. “We would see him in the stands cheering for his mom and dad when he was about 5-years-old. When he was 11 or 12, we had him playing our commercials over the PA. He then went to the pits to work on his mom & dad’s cars until he was old enough to race. He did pretty well in the street stocks, but the best he has ever looked was in the modified in those two races last season. This is a good step up for him. He is going to do well.

Saturday’s exciting program will feature heats and main events for all of the classes in action. Adult tickets are just $15.00. Active military members with proper id, students 13-18 with their school id and kids 6-12 are only $5.00. Kids 5 and under get in free.

For more information call The PAS at: (951) 940-0134.

Camping for all events at The PAS is available for $25.00 per night. The campground will open at noon on Friday. Tailgating in the spectator parking lot will begin at 1:00 PM for all PAS events as well.
