CALVERT CITY, KY (May 4th and 5th, 2007)-One of the hottest drivers in Dirt Late Model racing, Shannon Babb of Moweaqua, IL stormed to the lead on the second lap. Then led every lap from then on as he went on capture the Third Annual “99” for the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series on Saturday Night at the Kentucky Lake Motor Speedway.  The 33 year old racer earned $24,999 for his second Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series victory of the year. Babb piloted the Bill Moyer owned/Car City/J&J Steel/Watters Auto Land/Performance Rod and Custom/Allstar Performance/Imperial Motors/Dargie Race Engines/C.J. Rayburn Monte Carlo to victory lane holding off a late race challenge from Steve Francis of Ashland, KY.  Francis finished second in the Tim Logan/Morehead Auto Truck Parts and Sales/Russell Baker/Rocket Monte Carlo.  Current series point’s leader Billy Moyer of Batesville, AR took third in the Car City/Pro Power Engines/C.J. Rayburn Monte Carlo. Rounding out the top five were Brady Smith of Solon Springs, WI in the AMSOIL/Pro Power Engines/Bloomquist Race Cars Monte Carlo and Earl Pearson, Jr. of Jacksonville, FL in the Bobby Labonte Racing/LifeLong Locks/MasterSbilt Dodge Charger. A total of 52 cars were on hand at the Sherri Heckenast owned facility.

Babb, who started from the pole, saw outside front row pole sitter Scott Bloomquist power to the lead on the first lap with Babb running second followed by Don O’Neal. By the second time around the track Babb had taken over the top spot from Bloomquist.  The third lap would bring out the first caution of the race for a flat tire on O’Neal’s car.

With O’Neal pitting Steve Francis would move into the third slot followed by Terry Casey.  On the restart after O’Neal’s caution Francis move up to second around Bloomquist as Casey pitted for a flat tire.  The second caution would fly on lap five for Garrett Durrett in turn two.

That would set up another restart with Babb holding the point followed by Francis, Bloomquist, Jeep VanWormer and Billy Moyer.  Those five drivers ran that way until Moyer would get by VanWormer on lap nine to take over fourth place.  By this point in the race Babb had built a four to five car length lead over the field.

Back to back cautions would take place on lap 12 for Scott James and Scott Bloomquist who both pitted with flats.  Second place running Steve Francis would suffer a similar fate on lap 14 relegating him to the tail after a quick pit stop.  The sixth caution came out on lap 15 when the restart cone ended up on the racing surface with several drivers making contact.

The race then had a lengthy stretch of green flag racing with Babb holding command of the race as Moyer started to challenge him as the two entered traffic by lap 28. Babb who at one point held a ten-car length advantage over Moyer saw that lead cut down to one car length when Brian Shirley slowed for the seventh caution of the race on lap 42.  On the restart Babb would have Moyer and Brady Smith behind him.  Smith had come from the 12th starting spot up to third as he was now challenging the leaders on the restart.

Smith made a run on Moyer passing him for the runner-up slot on lap 61 as Francis was coming back to the front as he was up to third by lap 63.  Babb held a straightaway lead over Smith with 30 laps to go.  A debris caution for a piece of metal on lap 69 would slow the field as Ray Cook would slow on the restart on lap 72 bringing a halt to the action.

Francis would then start to pressure Smith for second passing him on lap 75.  A car on the move was Wendell Wallace.  Wallace came storming up through the field in the last half of the race and got all the way to third by lap 77.  Wallace then started to hunt down the two frontrunners in Babb and Francis.  The last caution of the race came out for Wallace who suffered the same fate as some of the other competitors did during the race as he pitted for a flat tire.

With eleven laps to go Babb would have Francis on his rear bumper on the restart with Moyer in third followed by Smith and Pearson.  Babb would take off after the restart as Francis would fall three lengths behind him with less than ten circuits to go.  Babb would hold that advantage over Francis until the checkers flew.  Moyer would finish third behind those two to maintain his series points lead.  Smith would have his best run of the year in taking fourth followed by Pearson who came from the 18th starting spot.

Babb stood in victory lane at Kentucky Lake nearly exhausted after an unseasonably warm night of racing.  “My secondary barrels were hung wide open on my carburetor as I’m running around there, when I let off they were still going, so I was locking up my front brake as I ran the last ten about the worst I’ve ever run.”  “The track has its own characteristics, you could run high or low, the track was the best I’ve seen it.”

Completing the top ten were Steve Shaver, Brian Birkhofer, Ray Cook, Terry English and Matt Miller.

In preliminary action on Friday Night, Terry Casey was the LifeLong Locks Fastest Qualifier for the 52 entries hand.  The Hawk Brake and Quarter Master Heat Races were won by Terry Casey, Don O’Neal, Shannon Babb and Scott Bloomquist.  The Mason Racin’ Rebel Shock Dyno and Penske Shocks sponsored B-mains were Brian Shirley and Earl Pearson, Jr. The $600 bonus for the highest finishing driver who competed in three or fewer Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series events in 2006 went to Eric Jacobsen who finished 16th.  The $5,000 bonus to the driver who had the best average finishes from the 2006 Commonwealth Cup and this year’s “99” went to Steve Francis of Ashland, KY.

Coming up next for the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series will be the First Annual Superchips “Diamond Nationals” Presented by O’Reilly Auto Parts on Friday and Saturday, May 11th and 12th at the Lucas Oil Speedway in Wheatland, MO.  For more information you can visit www.LucasOilSpeedway.com.

2007results_4-28.jpg

HAGERSTOWN, MD (April 28th, 2007)-Scott James of Lawrenceburg, IN roared from the 14th starting spot taking the lead on lap 32 from Don O’Neal and then pulled away for his second career Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series on Saturday Night at the Hagerstown Speedway.  The “Silver Shark” earned $10,000 for the win in the 26th Annual Stanley Schetrompf Memorial Race becoming the eighth different winner in eight Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series events this season.  The 35-year-old second generation racer drove the Powell Motorsports/Baylor Trucking/Welsh Excavation and Development/Design Elements/Indiana Decal Company/Allstar Performance/Jay Dickens Racing Engines/Rocket GTO to victory lane over fellow Hoosier State driver Steve Casebolt of Richmond, IN who finished second in the Dale Beitler/Reliable Painting/Rocket GTO.  Third place went to 18th starting Jason Covert of York Haven, PA in the Barry Klinedinst/Red Wing Shoes/Rocket with 24th place starter Donnie Moran grabbing fourth in the Custom Cutters/Vic Hill Racing Engines/MasterSbilt Monte Carlo and Don O’Neal of Martinsville,  IN was fifth in the Jerry Jones/Jones Core/C.J. Rayburn Monte Carlo.  A total of 58 cars were on hand for the event that was delayed for two and half hours due to light rain.

 

Dan Schlieper and Billy Decker would make up the front row for the start of the 50 lap A-Main as those two drivers would earn the most passing points after the six heat races were completed.  The passing points format was used with more weather threatening in the area as time trials were scrapped.  Schlieper would quickly bolt to the lead of the race with Ricky Elliott and Steve Shaver grabbing the first three spots with a lap scored.  Don O’Neal, who started seventh, roared by Shaver on the second lap taking third from him.

 

Schlieper would keep the lead until Elliott went around him on lap five with Schlieper then having to deal with O’Neal as those two would go door to door for two laps until O’Neal was finally able to clear Schlieper for second on lap six.

 

Elliott then held a two to three car length advantage over O’Neal until O’Neal closed the gap and took over the point from Elliott on lap 15.  Meanwhile Shaver was back up to third with Schlieper and Decker in the top five with 15 laps scored.

 

The top five would stay that way until 14th place starter and former Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series “Rookie of the Year” Scott James made his presence known entering the top five on lap 18.  A lap later James would take over the fourth slot from Schlieper as he was making his way to the front.

 

As the race approached the halfway mark O’Neal was still the car to beat with Shaver now running in second followed by James, who had made his way to third.  James and Tim McCreadie then dueled it out side by side for two circuits with James gaining the spot for good.  James was not done yet as he overtook Shaver for second on lap 28. A lap later the second caution of the race came out for a slowing Earl Pearson, Jr. and that would be the break James needed as O’Neal had built up a comfortable lead.

 

On the restart O’Neal maintained the point but James was coming hard and passed O’Neal for the lead on lap 32.  Ray Cook then jumped into the mix running as high as third with less than 20 laps to go.

 

Steve Casebolt who had hung around the top ten most of the race then started to pick up steam as he went to fourth on lap 34 and then a lap later had third place all too himself as he would pass Cook.  Casebolt would then set his sights on second chasing down O’Neal.

 

Meanwhile up front James was on cruise as he pulled away from O’Neal and Casebolt and was headed to the checkered flag.  With no challengers in the last ten laps of the race it would be all James as he went on to record his second career Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series event and his first since 2005.  An exciting last five laps would see Casebolt take the second spot followed by two drivers who fought their way into the top five with 18th starting, Jason Covert and 24th place starting, Donnie Moran finishing third and fourth as O’Neal would wind up in fifth.

 

Covert would earn the $600 bonus that went to a local or regional driver who had competed in three or fewer series events in 2006 and Moran would earn the Edelbrock Hard Charger of the Race gaining 20 spots in the final rundown. Moran had to utilize a provisional to make the starting field of 25 cars.

 

In victory lane an elated James thanked his crew, which included only himself and crew chief Kenny Kenneda.  “What a race, the race was great, we made a few changes right before the feature and it paid off,  it was just me and Kenny here tonight and I can’t thank him enough for getting this car setup perfectly,” said the winner afterwards.  “I would say it’s the best car we’ve had since we ran second in the Dream last year.”  James also moved from 10th to third in the series point’s standings.

 

Completing the top ten were Ricky Elliott, Ray Cook, Terry English, Steve Shaver and Billy Decker.

 

Coming up next for the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series will be the Third Annual “99” from Kentucky Lake Motor Speedway in Calvert City, KY on May 4th and 5th.  Time Trials and Heat Races will take place on Friday Night, May 4th with consolation and the 99 Lap main event paying $24,999 to win and $1,999 to start on Saturday Night, May 5th. Tire rule for the Third Annual “99” is Hoosier LM20, LM40, D55 (Shoulder Plated), American Racer SD44, and MD56. For more information you can log on to www.klmsllc.com and www.lucasdirt.com.

BROWNSTOWN, IN (March 31, 2007) - Passing through the gates of Brownstown Speedway for the first time since 2001, Billy Moyer of Batesville, AR cashed in on his return and came home the victor of the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series sanctioned 10th Annual "Indiana Icebreaker" presented by Core Capital on Saturday Night earning $10,000.  The 49 year old National Dirt Late Model Hall of Famer started fourth on the grid and took the lead from Shannon Babb on lap 46 and led the rest of the way for the win.  Moyer driving his Car City/Banner Valley Hauling/J&J Steel/Karl Chevrolet/New Vision Graphics/Platinum Motors and RV's/Watters Autoland/McCarthy's One Hour Heating and Air/Pro Power Engines/C.J. Rayburn Monte Carlo #21 held off a charging Steve Casebolt of Richmond, IN by a car length at the finish line for his fourth career Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series win.

Casebolt driving the Dale Beitler/Reliable Painting/Rocket GTO led two other drivers in a nose to tail finish for the top four.  Jimmy Owens of Newport, TN was third in his Mike Reece/Reece Monuments/Bloomquist Race Cars Ford Fusion with Shannon Babb of Moweaqua, IL taking fourth in the Bill Moyer Racing/Car City/C.J. Rayburn Monte Carlo.  Early race leader Josh Richards of Shinnston, WV finished fifth in his Seubert Calf Ranches/Tony Stewart Racing/Rocket Monte Carlo.  A total of 72 cars were entered at the Tim Keithley and Jerry Jones promoted facility before a standing room capacity crowd.

Richards grabbed the point at the start of the race with Babb, Moyer, Casebolt and Greg Johnson the top five after one circuit. Owens would slide by Johnson on lap two to take fifth as a three wide battle for second would bring the crowd to their feet. Richards would start to pull away from the exciting race for second as he would go to as much as a twelve car length advantage by the 10th lap.  With Babb, Moyer, Casebolt and Owens running nose to tail and side by side they would start to track down Richards by lap 15 as the leader was entering heavy traffic.

By this point of the 75 lap thriller, Owens had surpassed Casebolt and Moyer and was running in third on Babb's heels.  Richards would have two lapped cars between himself and Babb as they diced through lapped traffic.  By lap 32 it was a real dog fight for the point with Richards, Babb and Owens going three wide for the lead with Babb emerging the frontrunner.  Owens went to second as Richards would fall to third.

With Owens trying the outside route on Babb on lap 43 he was attempting to take the lead in more heavy traffic for the top duo, but Owens would slip up out of the groove on lap 44 and loose two spots in the running order to Moyer and Casebolt.  Moyer then saw an opening and took full advantage passing Babb for the lead on lap 46.  Casebolt would then overhaul Babb for second and start to put heat on Moyer.

The only caution flag of the race came out for Steve Francis on lap 51.  With 24 laps remaining on the restart it was Moyer showing the way followed by Casebolt, Babb, Owens and Richards.

When the green flag waved, Moyer would go to a three to four car length lead over Casebolt, but with 15 laps to go it was anybody's race to win among the top four competitors.  Babb would get back into third around Owens on lap 64 but four laps later Owens was back in front of Babb in the tight race for third.  With five laps to go Moyer, Casebolt, Owens and Babb were bumper to bumper with those trailing Moyer hoping for a mistake in order to steal the race in the waning laps. But it was not to be as Moyer held his line and a furious last lap effort by Casebolt to pass him as Moyer went on to claim his 14th career victory at Brownstown Speedway.  Casebolt finished second followed by Owens, Babb and Richards.

In victory lane for the first time in six years at Brownstown, Moyer was complimentary of the track prep.  "It's been a while since we've been here and they've made a few changes to the track and I think for the better and it being a little wide on the straight-aways made for some good racing."  "This little hot rod that Rayburn came out with has been real good, the combination has been great and we have always liked it here from the first time I ever came here."

Completing the top ten were Greg Johnson, Darren Miller, Scott James, Earl Pearson, Jr., and Don O'Neal.

In preliminary action Terry Casey captured the LifeLong Locks Fast Time Award with a lap of 14.060 seconds.

The Hawk Brake and Quarter Master Heat Races were won by Josh Richards, Shannon Babb, Steve Casebolt, Jimmy Owens, Donnie Moran and Billy Moyer.  The Mason Racin' Rebel Shock Dyno and Penske Shocks B-Main winners were Scott Bloomquist and Jeep VanWormer. 

The K&N Filters Clean Pass of the Night award went to Jeep VanWormer, who started ninth in his B-Main and passed Steve Barnett on the final lap for the win.  Victor Lee earned the $600 bonus for being the highest finishing non series regular that competed in three or fewer events in 2006. 

The next Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series event will take place on Saturday, April 14th at the Tazewell Speedway in Tazewell, TN paying $10,000 to win.  For more information you can go to www.tazewellspeedway.net.

Tim McCreadie would charge from the 17th starting spot to finish second in the Sweeteners Plus/Pro Power Engines/Rocket Monte Carlo with Matt Miller of Waterville, OH placing third in the Moring Motorsports/MDI Environmental/Rocket Monte Carlo. Finishing out the top five in the finale was 20th starting Terry English of Benton, KY in the Petroff Towing/C.J. Rayburn Monte Carlo and Billy Drake of Bloomington, IL in the Creative Kitchens and Bath/Mullvain Motors/C.J. Rayburn GTO. A total of 86 entrants were on hand for the event which was run before a standing room crowd. Scott James and Jimmy Mars were the front row starters for the $12,000 to win event with Mars taking the point at the wave of the green flag. Mars, James and Matt Miller would quickly open some room between themselves and the rest of the field as the trio was setting a torrid pace. Mars was already picking up the tail end of the field by lap seven and was getting ready to lap cars when the first caution of the race appeared on lap ten. With the restart it would be Mars in front followed by James, Miller, Billy Drake and Dan Schlieper. The race would go green for one more circuit until a caution for a slowed Steve Francis would halt the action. On the restart Mars again would set a blistering pace with Schlieper on the move coming from fifth to second on lap 15 dropping James to third. Terry Casey then went to fourth as Schlieper was not done yet as he took over the lead with a slide job on Mars on lap 16. There were two back to back cautions after lap 16 were scored with Schlieper on the point for the restart of the race. For the next five laps of green flag racing Schlieper was distancing himself from James, who was in second and Shannon Babb, who was on the move in third. Steve Shaver would slow in turn four on lap 29 bringing out caution number six of the race. With 45 laps to go Schlieper would see Babb join him in the race for the lead as both had their cars hooked up on the top side of the race track. Mike Marlar slowed on lap 36 which brought out another caution and under the yellow flag James, who was running third behind Schlieper and Babb would head pitside with a smoking car. On the restart Babb would challenge Schlieper for the lead with traffic again looming ahead of the pacesetters Babb was looking for an avenue around Schlieper. On lap 46 while still the leader of the race Schlieper would come to a halt in turn number two with a problem that would relegate him to the tail of the field. Babb would now be the new leader of the race with 11th place starter, Scott Bloomquist now running second followed by McCreadie, Miller and Casey. Babb would start to put several lengths on Bloomquist as he was setting up for a 25 lap march to the finish. A quick pace by Babb allowed him to put a couple of lapped cars between himself and Bloomquist by lap 55. Babb had about a six car length lead over Bloomquist with 15 laps to go when Babb would bring out the ninth caution of the race when he slowed in turn number two. Babb’s car had been smoking for a couple of laps as his chance for the win went by the wayside. Bloomquist then would pick up the lead with Miller, McCreadie, English and Drake the top five. Miller and McCreadie would race side by side for second until McCreadie would clear Miller for second on lap 70 after a final restart after a caution. Casey, who was running fourth at the time he dropped out of the race at this point leaving the battle to remain in the top five to Bloomquist, McCreadie, Miller, English and Drake. This last yellow would set up a six lap showdown for the race win. With Bloomquist on the point he would pick up the pace in the last six laps as it looked like he was going to get away from McCreadie and Miller and cruise on for the win, but McCreadie had other ideas as he would set up a last lap charge which allowed him to close on Bloomquist very quickly on the white flag lap, but heading to the finish line Bloomquist would hold his advantage and take his first victory at East Bay in 17 years. McCreadie finished second with Miller, English and Drake rounding out the top five. “I can’t say enough about the track it was in excellent shape tonight, most of the guys have been here since Monday so I felt a little behind the eight ball when I got here, but we worked until 6 a.m. this morning getting the car ready and it really paid off.” “Dan and Shannon were real strong tonight, but I saw smoke from Shannon’s car for a few laps there and I didn’t know how much longer he was going to last,” said Bloomquist. “I especially want to thank Bob and Barb Miller for all of their support, it was great to see them here and a big thank to all of our other great sponsors who make this possible.” Completing the top ten were Jimmy Mars, 25th starting, Earl Pearson, Jr., 26th starting, Don O’Neal, Eddie Carrier, Jr. and Dan Schlieper. Schlieper clinched the 2007 DART Machinery Winternationals Points by claiming the 10th spot in the final rundown. Schlieper was very good all week long in his Miller Brothers Coal/Hawkeye Trucking/Uncle Buck/Five Star Race Car Bodies/Allstar Performance/VP Racing Fuels/Integra Racing Shocks/Weld Racing/Out Pace Racing Products/Pro Power Engines/C.J. Rayburn Ford Fusion as he claimed the week long championship over Terry English, Matt Miller, Steve Francis and Don O’Neal. In preliminary events leading up to the main event finale Shannon Babb was the LifeLong Locks Fast Time Award for the second time in three nights as he set the fastest overall qualifying time of 14.653 seconds over the 89 entrants on hand. The Hawk Brake and Quarter Master sponsored heat races were won by Steve Francis, Dan Schlieper, Jimmy Mars, Billy Drake, Matt Miller, Scott James, Terry Casey and Eric Jacobsen. The Mason Racin’ Rebel Shock Dyno and Penske Shocks sponsored B-mains went to Tim McCreadie, Donnie Moran, Steve Shaver and Terry English. The next Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series event will be on Saturday Night, March 31st at the Brownstown Speedway in Brownstown, IN for the Annual “Indiana Icebreaker” which pays $10,000 to win.

TAMPA, FL (February 9, 2007)-Steve Shaver of Vienna, WV waited patiently through several caution flags as he withstood the challenges of three different drivers as he captured the 40 lap Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series main event on Friday Night at East Bay Raceway during the 31st Annual East Bay Winternationals. Shaver’s third career Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series came aboard the Cosgrove Racing/Ludicrous Hardcore Energy Drink/Waco Oil and Gas Company/Drywall Systems, Inc/United-West Virginia’s Bank/Sunoco Race Fuels/Panther Motorsports Designs/Penske Racing Shocks/Lakeview Estates/Malcuit Racing Engines/Rocket GTO. Shaver earned $10,000 for the win which was his fifth ever at East Bay. Josh Richards of Shinnston, WV made a valiant last lap effort to overhaul Shaver, but fell one car length short at the finish. Richards the Seubert Calf Ranches/Cornett Racing Engines/Rocket Monte Carlo was second with Jeep VanWormer of Pinconning, MI taking third in the Bayline Fire Protection/Cornett Engines/C.J. Rayburn Monte Carlo. Completing the top five were Terry English of Benton, KY in the Petroff Towing/Rayburn Automotive/C.J. Rayburn Race Cars Monte Carlo and Billy Moyer of Batesville, AR in the Car City/Pro Power/C.J. Rayburn Monte Carlo. A total of 96 cars were on hand for the fifth night of the DART Winternationals at East Bay. Shaver and VanWormer would led the field for the green for the 50 lap event which got off to less than auspicious start with a caution flying immediately for a wreck in turn two. After a lap was scored with Shaver leading the race there were four straight cautions for pileups on the track which damaged several cars. Shaver was still in front on the third scored lap when the fifth caution flew for a stalled Wendell Wallace. The race would go green for another lap and as soon as another lap was scored the yellow came out again for Dan Schlieper. Then two more cautions on the restarts had Shaver waiting patiently for the restart as he still held the point with Terry English, VanWormer, Josh Richards and Scott James the top five cars. Finally with ten laps in the books and some crinkled sheet metal later the drivers were able to get more than one lap in the books as for the first time all race long there were two consecutive green flag laps. With the difficulty to get the race going in the early stages, the last fourth of the race was a terrific battle for the lead among three drivers. With Shaver leading VanWormer would scoot by him on lap 14 to take over the lead for the first time in the race. VanWormer would lead three laps until Shaver retook the point on lap 17. Shaver and VanWormer were putting on a spectacular race for the lead as English was now in the hunt as the cars took the crossed flags at the halfway mark of the race. English would grab second from VanWormer on lap 28 as VanWormer slid down the track in turn two losing a spot. English would then mount a challenge for the lead on Shaver. English pulled even with Shaver in the battle for the lead with Shaver holding him off. With ten laps to go Shaver was up to a five car length lead over English and VanWormer with Richards on the move in the waning laps. Richards would take third from VanWormer on lap 41 and with nine laps to go he started to close on English for second. Richards would pass English for second on lap 46 and then set sail after the race leader, Shaver. Shaver in the closing laps would have Richards close right on his spoiler and as the two exited turn four headed to the checkered flag Shaver would outrace Richards and beat the teenager one car length for the win becoming the fifth different driver to win at East Bay in five nights of racing this week. VanWormer was third with English and Billy Moyer completing the top five. “I want to dedicate this win to my good friend, Ben Garland in California who is in a coma.” “I picked up a horrible push and we were able to hang on for the win,” said Shaver afterwards. Finishing out the top ten were Scott James, Donnie Moran, Matt Miller, Don O’Neal, and Dan Schlieper. In preliminary action Shannon Babb was the LifeLong Locks Fast Time Award Winner as he set a fast lap of 14.650 seconds. The Hawk Brake and Quarter Master sponsored heat races were won by Tim Dohm, Jeep VanWormer, Terry English, Scott James, Wendell Wallace, Steve Shaver, Dan Schlieper and Earl Pearson, Jr. and the Mason Racin’ Rebel Shock Dyno and Penske Shocks sponsored B-mains were taken by Josh Richards, Brady Smith, Michael England and Don O’Neal. The Performance Rod and Custom Strawberry Dash was won by Eddie Carrier, Jr. The Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series quickly returns to action at East Bay Raceway on Saturday night, February 10th with a complete show of LifeLong Locks Time Trials, Hawk Brake and Quarter Master sponsored Heat races, Mason Racin’ Rebel Shock Dyno and Penske Shocks sponsored B-Mains Performance Rod and Custom Strawberry Dash and the $10,000 to win A-Main.
