(Perris, CA, September 5, 2017) This Saturday night, September 9th, will be the most important race thus far in 2017 for the PASSCAR Stock Car Series drivers at Perris Auto Speedway. Saturday will be the last chance for drivers to qualify for the “PASSCAR Pursuit Championship” on October 24th. Drivers in the Super Stocks, Street Stocks, Modifieds and American Factory stocks will all be vying for the important qualifying spots. Spectator gates will open at 5:00 P.M. and racing will start at 7:00.

Any driver who has won a main event and who has attended the required number of races after Saturday, automatically qualifies for the October finale. There will be seven spots open for each class. However, as there were repeat winners in each class, the highest point drivers (with the appropriate number of appearances) without wins will also have a chance to get in.

“This Saturday is a big deal for a lot of drivers,” promoter Don Kazarian said. “Many drivers are hoping to get that win to get in, but they will also be fighting for points in case they have to get in that way. Once they get in, it is just like the last NASCAR race of the year where you are having a race within a race. Everybody will be trying to win the October main event and the highest finishing driver among the “Super Seven” in each class will be crowned champion for 2017. The fans love it.”

Due to the domination of Riverside’s Luke Dodd, who has won five of the first six races in the Street Stocks, five of the spots for the finale will be decided on Saturday. The only other qualified Street Stock driver is Bryce Mulvey of Garden Grove who won the main event on June 3rd. Likewise, five spots remain open in the American Factory Stocks. Only teenagers James Altman Jr. of Lake Elsinore and Alyssa Smith of Norco are qualified for finale. Altman has three wins and has not finished worse than second this year. Smith, who won the “El Nino Winter Series Championship” two years ago, has two Factory Stock wins coming into the night.

Bryce Mulvey of Garden Grove, shown on the inside of #74 Casey MacDonald of Riverside and Chris Leventis of Rancho Palos Verdes, is the only driver other than Luke Dodd to win in the Street Stocks this year. Please give photo credit to Vane Ledgerwood.

In the Modifieds, three drivers, Mike Kirby of Bullhead City, Arizona, Steven “Bam Bam” Fangmeyer of Lake Elsinore and Joseph Altig of Imperial Beach, have already qualified for the championship. That means four spots are up for grabs for October’s “Big Dance.” However, Altig, who won the main event on April 8th, missed the last race. If he misses Saturday, he will not be eligible for the title in October and five spots to get in would be available this Saturday.

Four drivers are already qualified for the Super Stock finale. Riverside’s Fred Estrada and Tom Smith of Norco lead the quadrant with two wins each. Two-time champion Dennis Wooldridge of Riverside and Buena Park’s Billy Griffin are the other qualifiers with one win each. That means three qualifying spots are open on Saturday.

All drivers will contest heat races, B main events if applicable and A main events on Saturday.

Adult tickets for Saturday’s show are $15.00. Active military with proper id, teens 13-18 with their school id and kids 6-12 get in for just $5.00. Children 5 and under are free. Parking on the fairgrounds is $8.00.

Fan wishing to buy advance can do so 24-hours a day online at or by calling 1-800-595-4849. For those fans who do not wish to purchase advance tickets, there will be plenty available for everyone at the ticket window on race night.
