FOUR CLASSES OF STOCK CARS AT PERRIS AUTO SPEEDWAY SATURDAY- PURSUIT CHAMPIONSHIP WIDE OPEN!
(Perris, CA, June 24, 2014) Round three of the most competitive Southern California Stock Series, PASSCAR, returns this Saturday night, June 28th, to Perris Auto Speedway. The entertaining show will feature four separate classes of clay slinging stock cars. The LoanMart Street Stocks, Modifieds, Super Stocks and American Factory Stocks. Spectator gates for the crowd pleasing show will open at 5:00 PM and the first heat race will take the green flag at 6:30.

Over the winter, promoter Don Kazarian announced The PAS Pursuit Championship. On the final night of the season, the “Super 7” in each division would race for their respective class title. The “Super 7” would be comprised of drivers who won main events in the first seven races. If one driver won more than one main event or a non PASSCAR member won a main event, the highest point driver in that division not to record a win would also be included.

Only two races into the campaign, the top point driver without a win is guaranteed to qualify for the final night in every single class. That was made possible when Riverside’s Dennis Wooldridge won both of the Super Stock mains. Non-member drivers won in the LoanMart Street Stocks & Modifieds and Hemet’s Adam Collins, who won the season opening Factory Stock main event, did not show up for the second race.

“Rules specify that you had to be a member and you had to be a member before the second race of the year,” Kazarian said. “To stay eligible after a driver wins, that driver has to show up at every remaining race. The winners of the main events on championship night will pocket a $1,000.00 bonus as well as being crowned 2014 champ. These rules were put in place to protect our regular drivers from being cherry picked by some out of town racers who just want to show up for the extra bonus money.”

Through the first two races, the drivers already qualified for the championship in November are Wooldridge in the Super Stocks, Riverside’s Luke Dodd in the Street Stocks, Alan Updyke of Tustin in the Modifieds and Fred Kottman of Hesperia in the Factory Stocks. If the season ended right now, non-main event winners who would also qualify would be Danny Webster of Cherry Valley in the Super Stocks, Riverside’s Eddie Gurwell in the Street Stocks, Dave Clark of Riverside in the Modifieds and Highland’s Tim LaBrake in the Factory Stocks.

“At the start of the year, some people were thinking that no drivers would make it on points,” Kazarian said. “I can guarantee you we will be going back to third and fourth in point’s minimum in some divisions. You have to run hard every night not only to try to win, but also to assemable points so you can make the Super 7. The racing has been the best we have ever had in the first two races because of this and we expect it to stay that way throughout the year.”

Right now, there are about 10 track champions looking in from the outside and after Saturday’s race, they will only have four more opportunities to get into the “Super 7” on a win.

Of the four 2013 track champions, only Wooldridge and Dodd are locked into the “Super 7“ thus far. Buena Park’s Billy Griffin, winner the 2013 Modified championship, is second in Modified points, only four markers behind Clark. Buckeye, Arizona teen sensation Nathan Deragon won last year’s Factory Stock title, but moved up to the Street Stocks for 2014. Going into Saturday’s race, Deragon is second in Street Stock points, 11 behind Gurwell.

As well as great racing, The PAS will also continue its great fight for the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life. During intermission on Saturday, drivers will be in the stands collecting money for the Relay for Life to fight cancer. 2014 is the eighth consecutive year The PAS has collected money for the Relay for Life and this year, the total raised will surpass $100,000.00.
