PCS CHAMPIONSHIP FINALE APPROACHING OCTOBER 14TH

ROSEVILLE, CALIFORNIA (September 28, 2017) – The fourth running of the Pacific Challenge Series “October Classic 100” presented by PenneyLawyers.com will for the second time serve as the series’ championship race, Saturday October 14th.  The 100 lap Super Late Model race at All American Speedway in Roseville, CA is the undercard for the NASCAR K&N Pro Series, West.  North State Modifieds for their championship race, a Bomber Open Show, and Skid Plates round out the busy night of entertainment scheduled.
The points battle is the closest in series history and contains some familiar characters, with 2015 champion John Moore of Granite Bay and 2014 champion Mike Beeler of Modesto tied.  Beeler won the championship thanks to a fifth place finish in the inaugural edition in 2014.  The race went non-points in 2015 and was won by Moore after he clinched the title two weeks earlier at Ukiah Speedway ahead of Beeler.
Beeler again finished second in the standings in 2016 while the October Classic was won by Cameron Park’s Jason Romero.  Beeler should mathematically earn his fourth consecutive top-two in the standings just by taking the green flag thanks to a 42 point cushion on Cole Moore of Granite Bay in third.  But Beeler has his sights set firmly on the series championship and is still looking for his first win of the season as well.
None of the nine races this year have had a repeat winner, beginning with Carlos Vieira storming to win the season opener at Madera, followed by Derek Copeland at Shasta, Jeff Bischofberger at Stockton, and Cole Moore at Roseville in June.  All four were first-time PCS winners before John Moore won Stockton in July followed by a first time win for Reno’s Randy Hedrick at Ukiah.
Jacob Gomes won his second career PCS race by taking August’s round at Madera before 2016 Rookie of the Year Matt Wendt won his first career event at Stockton in September.  Jason Romero’s fifth career PCS win came at Roseville two weeks ago in the prelude to the series championship.
Wendt is fourth in the points ahead of 2017 Rookie of the Year Jack Wood with his cousin Travis Milburn of Eagle, ID in sixth.  Romero, 2016 Shasta winner Tracy Bolin, Mike Hite of Elk Grove, and three-time track champion Matt Scott round out the top-ten.  Loomis’ Chris Scribner is 11th ahead of Hedrick.  Roseville favorite and 2006 Westcar champion Shannon Mansch is 14th.
A host of drivers from across the region are expected to take on the series’ regulars in the biggest race of the year.  Pre-entry is open now at www.PacificChallengeSeries.com/competition with drivers urged to pre-enter to be eligible for a prize awarded to each main event starter.  The fast-time award carries extra cash courtesy of Sunoco Race Fuels and WrapStar Pro, along with a $200 long tow award from WrapStar Pro.  Penney Racing Supply presents a Hard Charger and a Hard Luck prize.  Tool boxes and certificate prizes from NAPA Auto Parts include a large $600 gift certificate offered to the race winner.  A $400 K&N Filters certificate for 12th is also among the prizes.
The championship race is paired with the NASCAR K&N Pro Series, West, North State Modifieds, Bombers, and Skid Plates in a very busy night of racing!  Ticket details available at BMRNAPA.com

PREVIEW: ALL AMERICAN SPEEDWAY ON DECK SATURDAY NIGHT FOR PCS

SACRAMENTO, CALIFORNIA (September 15, 2017) – The Pacific Challenge Series presented by PenneyLawyers.com closes its 2017 Super Late Model season with a pair of races at Roseville’s All American Speedway, beginning Saturday night.  Saturday’s race is the ninth round of the series and serves as the makeup to an April rainout.  The series championship will be crowned October 14th in Roseville as well.
Eight different drivers have won the eight races so far in one of the most competitive seasons in PCS history. Six of the eight were first-time series winners as well.
Granite Bay’s Cole Moore, the 2015 PCS Rookie of the Year, snared his first career win when he led 95 laps for a narrow victory over Mike Beeler in June.  Moore ranks third in the points standings looking for his second career victory on Saturday.
His father John Moore, 2015 PCS champion, leads Beeler by just two points in the torrid title battle.  Two points represents just one position on the race track in the paper thin margin between the duo.  Beeler has yet to win this year but has run outside the top-five only once.  He has three second place finishes and three fourth place finishes this year.
Galt’s Matt Wendt runs fourth in the standings after winning on September 2nd at Stockton 99 Speedway for his first career victory.  2017 leading rookie Jack Wood of Loomis is fifth ahead of his cousin Travis Milburn.  Milburn is one of several drivers with ten career PCS starts at Roseville with one victory and seven top-fives in his career.
Tracy Bolin is seventh ahead of Roseville’s 2009 track champion Jason Romero in eighth.  Romero won all four Roseville races last year but did not run the June race with his father mark driving to an eighth place finish.  Elk Grove’s Mike Hite is ninth in the standings with a best finish of eighth this season.
Rounding out the top-ten is three-time track champion Matt Scott still looking for his first PCS victory.  Scott finished third in June after coming back from a spin.  He also finished fourth at Stockton two weeks ago.
Chris Scribner of Loomis ranks 11th overall while Roseville favorite Shannon Mansch led the first five laps in June and has a previous PCS win at her home track.  Reno, NV’s Randy Hedrick is also expected in action with his win at Ukiah in July highlighting his 2017 season.
15 year-old Austin Herzog of Clovis, a five-time Jr. Late Model winner, will make his second career PCS start after debuting in August at Madera Speedway.  Herzog notably led laps in last year’s Short Track Shootout $10,000 to win Late Model race in Madera.
Drivers are eyeing the tenth round of the series on October 14th, which returns as a points race after two years as a non-points event.  The PCS competes during the prestigious NASCAR K&N Pro Series, West weekend with the championship finale for the North State Modifieds and open shows for Bombers and F4/Skid Plate cars also on the menu.  Perhaps the largest event at All American Speedway in at least 20 years should attract 100 race cars to the pits and 4,000 fans in the stands.
Pre-entry is open now with pre-entries accepted until October 6th to be eligible for a large number of lucrative contingency prizes.  Entry forms are available at: http://pacificchallengeseries.com/wp-content/uploads/2017OctoberClassicEntry.pdf
This Saturday’s Round #9 of the PCS sees an open practice on Friday evening before action on Saturday.  Saturday night racing including a full card of Roseville divisions begins at 6 p.m.  Adult tickets are $15, while children ages 6-15 and seniors are $7.  Kids 5 and under are FREE.

PREVIEW: TRI-HOLIDAY #3 BRINGS PACIFIC CHALLENGE SERIES TO STOCKTON SATURDAY

SACRAMENTO, CALIFORNIA (August 31, 2017) – The Tri-Holiday #3 and eighth round of the 2017 Pacific Challenge Series presented by PenneyLawyers.com hits Stockton 99 Speedway on Saturday night.  The championship battle between 2015 champion John Moore and 2014 champion Mike Beeler continues as part of the ten race Super Late Model series.
Moore is one of seven different race winners in the seven PCS races so far this year.  His victory came during the prestigious Ron Strmiska Memorial 125 at Stockton in July.  His other PCS win at Stockton came during the 2015 July event.  In eight starts, Moore has seven top-five finishes.  He leads Beeler by 12 points in the title fight.

Beeler has a pair of wins at Stockton including the 2016 Ron Strmiska Memorial and the 2015 Tri-Holiday #3.  Beeler has finished in the top-two in the standings every season since 2014, finishing second to Moore in 2015 and to Jeremy Doss in 2016.  In 11 PCS starts at Stockton, the veteran drivers has a strong ten top-tens.

2016 Rookie of the Year Matt Wendt returns to his home track where he was the Tri-Holiday champion in Super Stocks previously.  Wendt has a sixth place finish and a seventh place finish at Stockton this season.  He has accumulated a perfect record of five top-tens in five PCS starts at the historic quarter-mile.
2017’s leading rookie Jack Wood rounds out the top-five in the championship bolstered by running in the top-ten in all seven races so far.  He has run sixth and eighth in his only Stockton PCS appearances in his young career.  The sixth place run in July is also his series best finish.
Wood’s cousin Travis Milburn is the defending winner of Tri-Holiday #3 and is sixth in the standings.  Jason Romero finished third at Stockton in May and is seventh overall ahead of Tracy Bolin, Chris Scribner, and Mike Hite.
Former Stockton Late Model champion Matt Scott has worked his way up to 12th in the points and is expected to compete on Saturday night.  Scott has a career best finish of third in PCS races at the speedway.  Former Stockton feature winner in the 90s Greg Kamper is attempting a return to his home track as well after many years out of action.

MADERA SPEEDWAY ATTRACTS STRONG PCS FIELD FOR SATURDAY

SACRAMENTO, CALIFORNIA (August 8, 2017) – Another talented field of Pacific Challenge Series Super Late Models will be in action on Saturday night, as drivers take to the one-third mile Madera Speedway for the seventh round of the 2017 series.  The PenneyLawyers.com sponsored action will be a 75 lap contest with drivers from several different disciplines coming together for the big race.

The PCS has not had a repeat winner in 2017 and has seen five of the six races go to first time winners.  The trend began with the season opener in March at Madera.  Carlos Vieira’s win was not only in his first PCS start but made for his first touring stock car victory of his popular career.  His win was followed by first-time wins for Derek Copeland, Jeff Bischofberger, and Cole Moore, before Cole’s father John won at Stockton on July 1st.  Randy Hedrick was yet another first time winner when he scored a late race win at Ukiah two weeks ago.

2015 champion John Moore leads 2014 champion Mike Beeler of Modesto by 10 points entering Madera.  2015 Rookie of the Year Cole Moore trails John by 30 points in a close three-way duel for the lead.

A host of drivers will try to knock the points contenders off of their pedestal in search of the race win on Saturday.  Not only will Vieira defend his March win, he will have to contend with the likes of 2016 Madera PCS winner Jacob Gomes as well.

A pair of 51FIFTY Jr. Late Model standouts – Eric Nascimento, Jr. and Austin Herzog – will make their series debuts.  Herzog, 15, is the winningest Jr. Late Model driver with five career wins while Nascimento, 16, won the most recent Jr. Late Model race on July 29th.

Watsonville’s Alexander Mead has adopted Madera as his home track and claimed a top-ten in his series debut in March.  He was the track’s Late Model Rookie of the Year in 2015.  Ross Strmiska has competed with touring series many times at Madera recording a trio of runner-up finishes.  Local favorite Justin Westmoreland goes to bat for the Ford fans whenever he brings out his red #9 entry and has a career-best third in touring action at the track.

2016 Rookie of the Year Matt Wendt of Galt nearly claimed victory at Ukiah and is eager to chase his first series win from fourth in the points ahead of 2017’s leading rookie Jack Wood of Loomis.  Jason Romero, Travis Milburn, Tracy Bolin, Chris Scribner, and Jeremy Doss make up the rest of the top-ten in the points.

11th in points Mike Hite of Elk Grove and 14th in points Matt Scott are also expected to compete on Saturday.  For Scott, it will mark his first stock car start at Madera after racing Legends cars at the track several years ago.  The four-time Late Model champion has a best PCS finish of third this year at Roseville and has yet to score a PCS victory on his strong resume.

This weekend’s racing will also include the Super Hobby Stocks, CSS 360 Super Modifieds, USAC HPD Midgets, Modified Super Toyotas, and F4’s.

An open practice kicks off the weekend on Friday with pit gates open at 2 p.m. and practice from 5 p.m. – 8 p.m.  Saturday’s Pit Gates open at 1 p.m. with first practices at 3:15 p.m. and racing by 6:30 p.m.  Ticket prices for this great night of racing have been slashed, with Adults $15, Seniors and Military $13, youth 6-12 $7, and kids five and under are free!

PREVIEW: LONE UKIAH APPEARANCE ON DECK FOR PACIFIC CHALLENGE SERIES

SACRAMENTO, CALIFORNIA (July 26, 2017) – The tight battle at the top of the 2017 Pacific Challenge Series presented by PenneyLawyers.com continues with a trip to the series’ tightest facility, as the Super Late Model drivers take to the quarter-mile Ukiah Speedway this Saturday.  2015 PCS champion John Moore leads 2014 PCS champion Mike Beeler and 2015 Rookie of the Year Cole Moore into Saturday’s main event.

PCS racing in 2017 has been wide-open with no repeat race winners through the first five races.  Four of the five winners – Carlos Vieira, Derek Copeland, Jeff Bischofberger, and Cole Moore – were first-time PCS winners before John Moore grabbed the Ron Strmiska Memorial on July 1st at Stockton.

The elder Moore ran all three Ukiah events in 2015 and ran fifth, third, and fourth.  His son Cole has only one top-five in three starts but it was a strong second place finish in October 2015.  The Moores have battled extensively on track this year including down to the wire in the Stockton race four weeks ago.  John Moore’s fifth place finish in the May race at Stockton is his low point of a near perfect season while Cole Moore has finished in the top-two in three consecutive races.

Mike Beeler has finished in the top-two of the points for three consecutive seasons and is on-track for his fourth consecutive top-two from the second spot currently.  Beeler has been a model of consistency with three fourth place finishes and a second place finish so far.  His Ukiah resume includes a win last year and six top-fives in his eight starts.

Jason Romero’s championship contending season has slipped slightly to the fourth position in the standings but still well within striking range.  The four-time All American Speedway PCS winner in 2016 has not reached victory lane yet in 2017 but ran second to start the year at Madera and third at the May Stockton race.  The 2009 All American Speedway track champion has never run a PCS race at Ukiah.

Rounding out the top-five is 2016 Rookie of the Year Matt Wendt of Galt, who has finished sixth three times this year along with a seventh place effort in the Strmiska Memorial.  Wendt will pilot a JD Motorsports entry campaigned by Jeremy and Mike Doss.  Jeremy Doss, the 2012 & 2016 series champion, won the PCS season finale at Ukiah last year.

Jack Wood leads the rookie standings out of the sixth position in the points and will try to better his career-best sixth place effort from the Strmiska Memorial.  He leads his cousin Travis Milburn of Eagle, ID by ten points with Valley Springs’ Tracy Bolin in eighth.  Elk Grove’s Mike Hite is the other competitor who has appeared at all five races, but a slew of mechanical problems has relegated him to tenth in the points although he is tied with ninth place Doss in the standings.

1th place in the standings is Chris Scribner of Loomis who has run in the top-three on three occasions at Ukiah including a victory in May of 2014.  Other series regulars such as JR Courage and Danny Malfatti have also recorded their series-best performances at the quarter-mile with Courage running second last July after leading the first 48 laps while Malfatti ran fourth last October.

Several regional drivers are expected to compete along with the return of Austin Gant to series competition after taking 2016 off.  A strong field will treat the fans to a great night of action that also includes the fast-growing Limited Modifieds, Bombers, Pro 4 Modifieds, and Drifting.

Activities get underway on Friday with practice.  Pit gates open at 10 a.m. on Saturday with practices to follow and qualifying at 5 p.m.

Grandstand tickets are $12 for Adults 16+, while Kids 6-11 and first responders are $6.  Seniors and Students are $9.  Kids 5 and under are free.  A family pack for 2 Adults and Kids is $30.

Ukiah Speedway is located at the Redwood Empire Fairgrounds.  For more information visit www.UkiahSpeedway.com

PREVIEW: RON STRMISKA MEMORIAL UP NEXT FOR THE PCS AT STOCKTON

SACRAMENTO, CALIFORNIA (June 27, 2017) – The Pacific Challenge Series presented by PenneyLawyers.com reaches the halfway point of the season with arguably its most coveted race, as the touring Super Late Model division hits Stockton 99 Speedway on Saturday for the “Ron Strmiska Memorial 125”.  The race also serves as the second Tri-Holiday event at the historic paved quarter-mile oval and is the longest lap count of 2017.

The race honors Ron Strmiska, Sr., otherwise known as the Manteca Missile, who was a big time racer in the San Joaquin Valley for many years before he passed away last year.  The second annual running of this race has attracted a very stout entry list of drivers vying for the prestigious win.

Ron’s grandson Ross will carry the family name while still looking for his first Stockton touring series win in several attempts across PCS and SRL.  He drives a hot pink #90 Dodge Charger in PCS action.

Joining Strmiska in the list of Stockton-area favorites will be 2015 SRL Southwest Tour champion Jacob Gomes of Manteca.  Gomes has a pair of second place finishes and a pair of fourth place finishes in his PCS career at the speedway with the most recent runner-up finish coming last September.  Gomes challenged 2014 series champion Mike Beeler of Modesto down to the wire in the inaugural Strmiska Memorial, with Beeler coming out on top.

Beeler is another driver that ranks Stockton as his home track and the PCS veteran is working on his fourth consecutive “top-two” season with the series.  Beeler won the 2014 championship before runner up efforts in 2015 and 2016.  He is currently tied with 2015 July Stockton winner John Moore of Granite Bay at the top of the series standings.  Moore parlayed his 2015 Stockton win into a championship and both drivers would like to do the same thing in 2017.

Tracy’s Justin Philpott and Stockton’s Colby Potts are another pair of second generation Stockton regulars expected on Saturday night and both are expected with muscle car bodies on their entries.  2013 Stockton 99 Speedway Late Model champion Matt Scott ran third in his 2017 PCS debut at Roseville and will carry that momentum into Stockton.

The 2017 Pacific Challenge Series has not yet had a repeat winner with all four races claimed by first-time series winners.  Carlos Vieira scored in Madera while Derek Copeland won at his home track at Shasta Speedway in May.  Jeff Bischofberger won at his home Stockton 99 Speedway on May 20th in a late race shootout while 2015 Rookie of the Year Cole Moore won at his home track All American Speedway in Roseville, CA on June 17th.

Moore is the only full-time competitor with a win this year and ranks fourth in the standings before 2009 Roseville champion Jason Romero who is third in the standings.  2016 PCS Rookie of the Year and Stockton Super Stock standout Matt Wendt of Galt rounds out the 2017 top-five in the points.

2017 leading rookie Jack Wood of Loomis is sixth followed by his cousin Travis Milburn of Eagle, ID, Valley Springs’ Tracy Bolin, Elk Grove’s Mike Hite, and Loomis’ Chris Scribner.  Manteca’s JR Courage and Hayward’s Danny Malfatti are also expected to compete.

Activities get underway on Friday with practice.  Gates open at noon with cars on the track at 3 p.m.  Pit gates open at 1 p.m. on Saturday with the first practices at 3 p.m.  The grandstands open at 5 p.m. with racing at 6 p.m. Pit passes are $40 per day for members but two-day passes will be at the member price for $80.

Grandstand tickets are $20 for Adults 16+, while Jr. 11-15, Military with ID, and Seniors 60+ are $15.  Kids 10 and under are free.  A family pack for 2 Adults and 2 Jr. is $55.  The popular Stockton Late Models, Stockton Bombers, and Stockton B4s will also be competing!

PREVIEW: PACIFIC CHALLENGE SERIES READY FOR ROSEVILLE THIS SATURDAY

SACRAMENTO, CALIFORNIA (June 13, 2017) – The Pacific Challenge Series presented by PenneyLawyers.com returns to one of its home race tracks, with the fourth race of 2017 Saturday night at All American Speedway in Roseville, CA.  Several local favorite drivers are expected to join the PCS touring stars on the one-third mile with Street Stocks and Bombers also scheduled on the undercard.

All three races this season have been claimed by first time winners with Carlos Viera, Derek Copeland, and Jeff Bischofberger all seeing victory lane.  That bodes well for drivers such as Cole Moore and Matt Scott who are still in search of their first PCS win.

2015 PCS champion John Moore has finished in the top-five in all three races this year with highest finish of second at Shasta in May.  The Granite Bay driver lists Roseville as one of his home tracks but in nine PCS appearances he has only managed two top-five finishes.  One of those top-fives, however, was a victory in the 2015 season finale held during the prestigious NASCAR K&N Pro Series, West race every October.

Moore leads 2014 champion Mike Beeler of Modesto by four points in what has been a continual battle for the last four seasons.  Beeler has finished in the top-two in the standings in each of his full-time seasons, following his championship with a runner-up effort to Moore in 2015 and runner-up to Jeremy Doss in 2016.  Beeler has a perfect record of all fourth place finishes thus far this season.

Cameron Park’s Jason Romero, the 2009 All American Speedway Late Model champion, is third in the standings and the leading money earner this season.  Romero has not yet visited victory lane despite race winning speed in each event this year.  He came within ten laps of victory at Stockton and had a strong lead at Shasta before a flat tire ended his chances.  Romero will hand the controls over to his father Mark Romero in Saturday’s race with the elder Romero carrying plenty of racing experience at the facility prior to its expansion in 2007.

2016 PCS Rookie of the Year Matt Wendt of Galt has persevered to run fourth in the championship with sixth place finishes across the board.  2015 PCS Rookie of the Year Cole Moore of Granite Bay used a second place finish on May 20th at Stockton leap into fifth in the standings.  Jack Wood of Loomis leads the 2017 rookie battle and is another driver who ranks Roseville as his home track.  Wood’s cousin Travis Milburn of Eagle, ID and Tracy Bolin of Valley Springs round out the eight drivers that have started every PCS race this year.  Derek Copeland and Danny Malfaftti round out the top-ten.

Mike Hite of Elk Grove has appeared at all three events but had engine woes in practice prevent him from competing at Shasta.  Milburn and Bolin had an incident in the dash at Stockton that relegated them to “start and park” the 100 lap feature.  Both drivers will bring back heavily repaired and improved machines to Roseville.  Milburn has a strong seven career PCS top-fives at the speedway.

Roseville fans will be treated to the returns of Matt Scott, Chris Scribner, and JR Courage among other local favorites expected to compete.  Scott won three consecutive Roseville Late Model championships running from 2010-12 followed by the 2013 Stockton 99 Speedway Late Model title as well.  He has never won a series event at his home track despite seven starts and a best finish of second.  Scribner, a former series winner at Ukiah, has a best Roseville PCS finish of third in nine starts.  Courage was the 2014 PCS Rookie of the Year.

Among drivers attempting their first start on Saturday night will be Sacramento’s Shane Butler as well.

Activities get underway Friday with practice beginning at 3:00 p.m. running until dark. Pit gates will open at 2 p.m.  On Saturday, pit gates will open at 12 p.m. with practices at 2 p.m., grandstand gates at 4 p.m., qualifying at 5 p.m. and racing at 6 p.m.  Adult tickets are just $15 with Children (6-15) $7.00, Seniors (60+) $7.00, and Children under 6 are FREE.  A Family Pass for two Adults and three Kids is just $35.00

PREVIEW: PCS TRI HOLIDAY SERIES AT STOCKTON BEGINS SATURDAY

SACRAMENTO, CALIFORNIA (May 17, 2017) – The Pacific Challenge Series presented by PenneyLawyers.com will hold its third race of 2017 and the first round of the Tri-Holiday Classic Series on Saturday night at Stockton 99 Speedway.  The historic quarter-mile has been a mainstay in the series and will again host PCS races on, or near, all three major holiday weekends – Memorial Day, Independence Day, and Labor Day.

This weekend’s race will be a 100 lap contest joined by the track’s fast growing Stockton Late Model division, Bombers, and the Legends of the Pacific.

A second place finish at Shasta and a third place effort at Madera has 2015 PCS champion John Moore of Granite Bay sitting atop the series standings.  Moore won the 2015 July Tri-Holiday race at Stockton and is eager to return to victory lane at a track where he has extensive experience.  Moore has six PCS starts at the speedway including a win and five top-fives.

2014 PCS champion Mike Beeler of Modesto won the 2016 July Tri-Holiday race and the 2015 September Tri-Holiday race.  He has finished in the top-two in the points in all three of his full-time seasons in the PCS and currently ranks second in 2017.  Beeler’s Stockton resume includes nine starts, two wins, five top-fives, and eight top-tens.

Third in the championship standings is Jason Romero of El Dorado Hills.  The four time Roseville winner in 2016 has had a remarkable streak of wins and fast-times in the last two years.  He has set the fast-time or track record at four of the five tracks on the circuit including fast-time in his Stockton debut last September.  Romero recovered from early race spin to finish second in the season opener at Madera and salvaged a top-ten after a flat tire at Shasta.

Galt’s Matt Wendt is fourth in the points standings with the two-time Super Stock Tri-Holiday champion poised for a strong performance on Saturday night at his home track.  Wendt was unable to close out a top-five finish in the three Stockton events last year despite running within the top-five in each race.

Rounding out the top-five in the points is Travis Milburn.  The Eagle, ID driver who graduated from St. Mary’s College won Tri-Holiday #3 last September.  He rebounded from a 12th place run to start the year at Madera by scoring a solid fourth place finish at Shasta.  His rookie teammate and cousin Jack Wood ranks sixth in the standings and also lead the Rookie of the Year battle with Watsonville’s Alexander Mead.

Valley Springs’ Tracy Bolin has been snake-bitten with gremlins this year but has managed seventh in the points with 2015 Rookie of the Year Cole Moore of Granite Bay, Chris Scribner of Loomis, and Madera winner Carlos Vieira rounding out the top-ten.  Engine troubles at Shasta have sunk Mead and Elk Grove’s Mike Hite to 12th and 14th respectively.

JD Motorsports, led by two-time PCS champion Jeremy Doss, intends to make their presence felt at Stockton Saturday night.  Doss is a the three-time Stockton PCS winner while his teammate Jeff Bischofberger has won an SRL event at the quarter-mile.  Fresh off his Shasta Speedway victory, Derek Copeland of Anderson, CA looks to maintain the momentum as he makes his first Late Model start at Stockton.  Hayward’s Danny Malfatti is also expected to return to competition along with long-time Stockton driver Ross Strmiska who has made seven PCS starts at Stockton with four top-tens.

Activities get underway on Friday with practice.  Gates open at noon with cars on the track at 4 p.m.  Pit gates open at 1 p.m. on Saturday with the first practices at 3 p.m.  The grandstands open at 5 p.m. with racing at 6 p.m. Pit passes are $40 per day for members but two-day passes will be at the member price for $80.

Grandstand tickets are $20 for Adults 16+, while Jr. 11-15, Military with ID, and Seniors 60+ are $15.  Kids 10 and under are free.  A family pack for 2 Adults and 2 Jr. is $55.
