MADERA SET FOR PACIFIC CHALLENGE SERIES RETURN ON SATURDAY

SACRAMENTO, CALIFORNIA (August 6, 2018) – Arguably the most competitive venue in the Pacific Challenge Series presented by PenneyLawyers.com will welcome the Super Late Model series on Saturday night as drivers face Madera Speedway.  The one-third mile asphalt oval routinely attracts a wide-variety of local drivers to compete with the PCS regulars.

Saturday’s race tickets are valued priced at $15 for adults and the program also includes Legends of the Pacific, Hobby Stocks, CSS 360 Super Modifieds, USAC Western US Midgets, and Modified Super Toyotas.

The showdown for the series championship between Cameron Park’s Jason Romero, John Moore, and Mike Beeler has simmered down just a bit on the heels of Romero’s fourth top-four of the year at Stockton in July.  John Moore’s engine failure led to a DNF, allowing Romero to extend his points lead to 14 points over Moore with Beeler an additional two points behind.

Cole Moore’s win at Stockton was his second of the year and third of his career, moving up to fourth in the points within 34 points of the lead.  Romero finished eighth at Madera in March and is still looking for an elusive win at the speedway.

French Camp’s Dave Byrd had his best weekend of the season at Stockton, running fourth in practice and finishing sixth in the feature.  Byrd will look to continue to make gains from fifth in the points standings.  Galt’s Matt Wendt won the American Racer Tire dash at Stockton but contact with Cole Moore led to a rear end failure for Wendt’s fifth consecutive DNF.  The DNFs have been a surprise after he won the final two races of 2017.

Carlos Vieira has won twice at Madera with the PCS and finished third at Stockton in July as well.  Elk Grove’s Mike Hite expects to return for Madera as do several others in the PCS fold.  Roseville’s Shannon Mansch, Matt Scott, and David Miller round out the top-ten in the standings.

The contingent of local drivers saddling up for Madera is expected to feature Ripon drivers Michael Sandoval and Mike Ray along with Madera Late Model standout Tyler Herzog, cousin of track points leader Austin Herzog.  Bakersfield’s Jacob Smith will make his PCS debut and hope to duplicate the success of other debutants this year such as Kolby Berry who was third at Ukiah and Michael Mitchell who ran sixth at Shasta.

Activities begin Friday night with practice from 5pm to 8pm.  Madera Speedway charges $40 per pit pass with no car fees.  On Saturday, pit gates open at 12:30pm with practice from 2pm to 4pm Qualifying will follow with opening ceremonies at 6pm followed by the PCS American Racer Tire Dash, a full program of main events, and a 75 lap nightcap for the PCS.  The main events will be broadcasted live by Madera Speedway on both Facebook and their YouTube account Short Track TV.

Tickets are $15 for Adults, $13 for Seniors & Military, $7 for youth 6-12, and kids five and under are free.

STOCKTON 99 SPEEDWAY UP NEXT FOR PACIFIC CHALLENGE SERIES

SACRAMENTO, CALIFORNIA (July 18, 2018) – The lone appearance in 2018 of the Pacific Challenge Series presented by PenneyLawyers.com at Stockton 99 Speedway is up next with the Super Late Model series visiting the quarter-mile on Saturday.  The historic speedway has been an important venue for the series since its inception.

Saturday’s race is no exception as just 14 points separate the top three in the standings at the halfway point of the eight race campaign.  Sweeping both Shasta Speedway races has propelled 2009 All American Speedway Late Model champion Jason Romero to the top of the PCS mountain by four points over 2015 champion John Moore.  Moore has finished no worse than fifth all season, bolstered by a second place run behind Romero in June at Shasta and a third place effort to open the year at Madera.

Two-time and defending champion Mike Beeler of Modesto rounds out the top-three after a seventh place finish at Shasta dropped him 14 points out of first.  Beeler and Moore each have enjoyed a pair of wins at Stockton and each won Stockton during championship winning seasons.  Both will hope that trend continues in 2018.

2015 Rookie of the Year Cole Moore has been snake bitten by mechanical problems but a victory at Ukiah has allowed him to hold steady in fourth.  17-time stock car champion Dave Byrd of French Camp is among those that count Stockton as a home race track and will do his bidding from fifth in the standings.

Stockton Super Stock Tri-Holiday champion Matt Wendt moved into the PCS in 2016 and won the 2017 September race at his home track.  Wendt is currently sixth in the standings, followed by Shannon Mansch of Roseville.  Mansch won a Westcar Late Model Series event at Stockton in May 2006 en route to becoming the first female touring stock car champion that year.

Coquille, OR’s David Miller, Valley Springs’ Tracy Bolin, and Ukiah’s John Dalerio round out the top-ten in the standings.  Two-time Madera PCS winner Carlos Vieira of Livingston, CA is expected in action on Saturday night along with Elk Grove’s Mike Hite and former Stockton Late Model champion Matt Scott of Pine Grove, CA among others.

Stockton 99 Speedway has loaded the deck with action this weekend, with the popular Stockton Late Models and Bombers competing along with a Legends of the Pacific national qualifier race and an appearance by the B4 Cylinders division.

Friday practice sees gates open at 2 p.m. with the track open until 8 p.m.  On Saturday pit gates open at 1 p.m. while grandstands open at 5 p.m.  Racing starts at 6 p.m.  Adult tickets are $20 for ages 16+, while Juniors, Seniors, and Military are $15.  Kids 10 and under are free and a family pack for two Adults and two Juniors is $55.  Tickets are available at the gate or online at Stockton99.com

PACIFIC CHALLENGE SERIES RACES INTO THE SHASTA DISTRICT FAIR SATURDAY

PACIFIC CHALLENGE SERIES RACES INTO THE SHASTA DISTRICT FAIR SATURDAY

SACRAMENTO, CALIFORNIA (June 20, 2018) – The Shasta District Fairgrounds will come to life with the touring stars of the Pacific Challenge Series on Saturday, with a large contingent of drivers from across Northern California expected at Shasta Speedway.  The fourth round of the PenneyLawyers.com backed series brings Super Late Models to the 3/8ths mile for their second appearance of the year.

Bombers, Hornets, and Legends will also be competing and all fair tickets will include admission into the races.

In April, Jason Romero of Cameron Park, CA set a sizzling track record lap of 15.428 seconds that he parlayed into the race victory.  Romero’s victory also is part of his points leading season.  Romero was eighth at Madera in March before the Shasta win in April and a runner-up finish at Ukiah in May.  His points lead is a narrow two points over former series champions John Moore of Granite Bay and Mike Beeler of Modesto.

Moore, the 2015 series champion, has had a consistent campaign with finishes of third, fourth, and fifth.  He nearly won the $5,000 to win Limited Late Model event at Roseville last weekend.  His career best PCS finish at Shasta is a second place run in 2017.

Beeler, winner of the 2014 and 2017 titles, has seen his season go the exact opposite direction of Moore.  His year opened in fifth at Madera before fourth at Shasta and third at Ukiah.  He’d like to improve two spots better for his first Shasta win on Saturday.  His third place in April was his best career finish at Shasta in three PCS starts.

Cole Moore’s Ukiah victory was his second career win in the PCS and has propelled him to fourth in the standings.  He opened the year with a pair of DNFs including a tenth place result at Shasta.  The 2015 PCS Rookie of the Year made his Shasta debut in 2016 with a career-best third place finish.

Rounding out the top-five in the championship is Dave Byrd of French Camp, CA.  The multiple-time stock car champion had a runner-up finish with the SRL Southwest Tour in 2007 along with a win and a second place finish in the prestigious Win-River 125 on the old 1/3rd mile configuration in the 1980s.

The remaining full-time car thus far has been 2016 Rookie of the Year Matt Wendt of Galt, CA.  Wendt has not yet finished a PCS race this season but carries high expectations into Shasta.

Other competitors that travel with the PCS expected at Shasta include Roseville’s Shannon Mansch, Ukiah’s John Dalerio, and Elk Grove’s Mike Hite.  Former NASCAR K&N Pro Series, West driver James Bickford will compete for Matt Scott Racing in the #35 Chevrolet.  Bickford previously had a runner-up finish when the West came to Shasta in 2015 for the Bill Schmitt Memorial.

Local standouts such as 2017 Shasta PCS winner Derek Copeland, Brandon Williams, Dane Nissen, and Trevor Harrison will also be competing joined by several Eureka area drivers including Dustin Walters.

There will be no Friday practice due to the Shasta District Fair.  PCS competitors will get a special practice session early Saturday instead.  Pit gates will open at 10 a.m. with practice from 12 p.m. to 2 p.m.  Regular cycles of practice sessions for all four divisions competing will follow, with qualifying at approx. 5 p.m. and racing at 6 p.m.  The 100 lap PCS feature will wrap up the exciting night of action at approx. 9 p.m.

Admission for the fair includes admission to the races.  Prices are Adults – $10.00,

Senior & Military – $7.00 (62 & Over), Junior- $6.00, and Parking – $7.00.

PACIFIC CHALLENGE SERIES TRAVELS NORTH TO UKIAH ON SATURDAY

SACRAMENTO, CALIFORNIA (May 16, 2018) – Round #3 of the 2018 Pacific Challenge Series presented by PenneyLawyers.com will tackle the challenging Ukiah Speedway with Super Late Model action on the quarter-mile oval.  Saturday’s race will be the only Ukiah stop out of the eight race touring stock car series.

2015 Pacific Challenge Series champion John Moore of Granite Bay holds that same title in 2018, after a narrow runner-up finish in the 2017 championship.  Moore comes into Ukiah fresh off an American Racer Tire dash victory at Shasta in April that he parlayed into a come-from-behind fourth place finish.  Moore also finished third in the season opener at Madera in March.  His record at Ukiah includes four top-fives including a fourth place finish in 2015 on the championship finale.

2015 Roseville Pacific Challenge Series winner and 2006 Westcar Late Model Series champion Shannon Mansch has rocketed up to second in the points.  Her second place finish at Shasta breaks her tie for second in the standings with 2014 and 2017 champion Mike Beeler.  Mansch has just one PCS start at Ukiah that yielded an eighth place finish in 2015.

Beeler has been one of the most successful drivers at Ukiah in series history, amassing nine starts, seven top-fives, and one win.  Beeler and Mansch trail Moore by a narrow two point margin and will try to close that gap on Saturday.

Jason Romero’s sixth career PCS win at Shasta has moved him up to fourth in the standings, just four points out of first.  Tracy Bolin’s fourth place outing at Madera has him fifth in the championship.

A trio of drivers find themselves deeper in the standings than they would have liked going into the year, with all of them aiming to turn their fortunes around at Ukiah.  14-time stock car champion Dave Byrd is sixth in the standings ahead of former Rookie of the Year drivers Cole Moore and Matt Wendt.  Both have had race winning speed in previous Ukiah attempts, with Wendt coming close to victory last July at Ukiah.  Combined across four starts each, the duo has only tallied three top-fives collectively at the bullring.

Madera opening night winner Carlos Vieira and last July’s Ukiah winner Randy Hedrick round out the top-ten in the standings.  Redwood Valley’s Kolby Berry aims for his PCS debut after a productive career in Junior Late Models, and will be joined by Ukiah’s John Dalerio as some of the drivers looking to defend their home turf.

Action gets underway on Friday with practice from 6pm-9pm.  On Saturday, grandstands open at 3:30pm with racing at 5pm. Adults are just $12, Senior/Student $9, Children 6-11 $6, and kids 5 and under are free! The family pack for 2 adults and 3 kids is $30.  Ukiah Speedway is located at the Redwood Empire Fairgrounds.  Bandoleros, Bombers, Legends, Jalopies, Jammers, and Pro 4’s will also be competing.\

UKIAH SET TO HOST PACIFIC CHALLENGE SERIES MAY 19TH

SACRAMENTO, CALIFORNIA (April 23, 2018) – The Pacific Challenge Series presented by PenneyLawyers.com will now feature five different race tracks across its eight race Super Late Model touring series, as Ukiah Speedway will host the series on May 19th.

The race has been moved from All American Speedway in Roseville, CA, as the track continues negotiations for a new promoter.  Currently scheduled races at Roseville for September 8 and October 13 remain on the calendar tentative to the one-third mile completing their agreement.

Ukiah Speedway is the tightest quarters racing of the year on the high-banked quarter-mile oval.  Randy Hedrick of Reno, NV won a thriller to take last July’s round and will be among drivers looking forward to the series’ return.  Two-time PCS champion Mike Beeler of Modesto has been a dominant force at the track, scoring four top-twos in the last two years.  His victory at Ukiah in 2016 saw him sweep around the outside of JR Courage in an exciting and decisive move.

The PCS runs once monthly this season, with Shasta Speedway following Ukiah on June 23rd.  Stockton and Madera are also hosting races in 2018.

PACIFIC CHALLENGE SERIES ROUND #2 SATURDAY AT SHASTA

SACRAMENTO, CALIFORNIA (April 18, 2018) – Round #2 of the 2018 Pacific Challenge Series presented by PenneyLawyers.com will hit the 3/8th mile Shasta Speedway in Anderson, CA on Saturday night.  The largest facility on the series’ calendar hosts the PCS twice in 2018, with local drivers aiming to challenge the touring stars of Northern California’s Super Late Model Series.

Saturday’s races take place during the “Kool April Nights” classic car event taking place throughout the area, making for a gearheads paradise in the north state.

Carlos Vieira won the 2018 season opener for the PCS at Madera Speedway in March.  Vieira dominated the 75 lapper but faced company late in the race from hard-charging Randy Hedrick of Reno, NV.  Hedrick settled for second place with 2015 series champion John Moore in third.

The 2017 visit to Shasta attracted an outstanding 18 car field and saw 2009 All American Speedway champion Jason Romero set fast-time and win the American Racer Tire dash before a flat tire knocked him from the lead on lap 18.  Cole Moore also ran strong before he succumbed to mechanical problems late in the race.

Derek Copeland scored the hometown victory with John Moore coming home second and 2017 champion Mike Beeler finished fourth.  Roseville’s Shannon Mansch and Galt’s Matt Wendt, both expected on Saturday night, finished fifth and sixth respectively.  Other local Shasta drivers expected to compete include Ryan Peeples and Trevor Harrison.  Willow’s Dane Nissen will make his return to the series as well.  Nissen scored one top-five in last year’s Super 6 series that utilizes similar rules to the PCS.  In 10 starts in the former North State Challenge Series, Nissen finished on the podium at Shasta twice.

Shasta is one of the few tracks where 14-time racing champion Dave Byrd has not yet visited victory lane.  He came close in July 2007 – his last trip there – when he finished second in the SRL Southwest Tour series.  June 2016 Shasta PCS winner Tracy Bolin finished third in that particular event as well.

Three-time All American Speedway champion Matt Scott will make his first start of the season, still searching for his first PCS victory.

Racing action on the 3/8ths mile will also include Bombers, Hornets, and Legends of the Pacific.  Racing gets started on Friday with practice.  Gates open at 1 p.m. with practice under the lights from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m.  Pit passes are $45.  On Saturday, gates open at noon with a $45 pit pass fee and a $100 PCS entry fee.  Practice, qualifying, and racing will follow.

Discount racer rate hotels are available at the Best Western Anderson Inn and Gaia Hotel.  Mention Shasta Speedway for the rate.

PACIFIC CHALLENGE SERIES READYING FOR SATURDAY OPENER AT MADERA

SACRAMENTO, CALIFORNIA (March 28, 2018) – The Pacific Challenge Series presented by PenneyLawyers.com will begin its 2018 Super Late Model campaign on Saturday at Madera Speedway, after rainy spring delayed proceedings by two weeks.  The PCS is now paired with an exciting evening of racing that honors valley racing legends Smokey Hanoian, Al Pombo, and Marshall Sargent.  Allied Storage and Hampton Inn & Suites will present the activities that include the Big Egg Hunt and an undercard including BCRA Midgets and USAC Western US Midgets.

A wide-variety of talented drivers is expected to compete in the 75 lap feature on the one-third mile oval.  Carlos Vieira leads those drivers after he dominated both PCS races at Madera in 2017.  Vieira grabbed victory in the March race but recorded a DNF after contact late in the August event while leading.

The 2017 championship had six first-time series winners and the points went down to the wire with Mike Beeler becoming only the second repeat champion in series history.  John Moore narrowly missed out on the crown with his son Cole third in the points.  The hottest driver in the series was Matt Wendt who won two of the last three races of the year to be the series’ only repeat winner.  Wendt ended up fourth in the final standings ahead of 2017 Rookie of the Year Jack Wood.

El Dorado Hills’ Jason Romero ended up seventh in the points buoyed by a runner-up in the March Madera race and a win at Roseville in September.  Tracy Bolin’s fifth place finish at Madera to open 2017 was his best finish of the year en route to eighth overall.

Elk Grove’s Mike Hite, and Pine Grove’s Matt Scott made up the rest of the championship top-ten.  Other winners included Derek Copeland at Shasta, Jeff Bischofberger at Stockton, and Randy Hedrick at Ukiah.

Grandstand ticket prices on Saturday have been reduced thanks to Madera Speedway’s fine family of sponsors.  Adults will be just $15, seniors and military $13, youth ages 6-12 $7, and kids 5 and under are FREE!

The weekend’s activities will get underway with a Friday practice session, scheduled from 5pm to 8pm.  Saturday’s race day schedule will see pit gates opening at 10 am with practices from 11:30am to 12:50pm Qualifying will follow.  The American Racer Tire Dash be integrated into the vintage main events that begin at 4pm.  Opening ceremonies commence at 5:30pm with the PCS set to be the night cap with a tentative green flag at 7:30pm

SACRAMENTO, CALIFORNIA (March 19, 2018) – The Pacific Challenge Series presented by PenneyLawyers.com will now open its season on Saturday March 31st at Madera Speedway, after rain soaked the originally scheduled March 17th weekend.  The first of two appearances for the SLM series at the one-third mile will be paired with a variety of open wheel series including BCRA Midgets and USAC Western US Midgets.

A kids Easter Egg Hunt and vintage open wheel racing will round out the card that honors valley racing legends Smokey Hanoian and Al Pombo.

Parity has been the name of the game in the PCS for several seasons including six first-time winners in last year’s series.  Carlos Vieira won the Madera season opener for his first career win.  Popular Late Model and tour car standout Jacob Gomes has two career PCS wins – both at Madera.

Modesto’s Mike Beeler narrowly topped Granite Bay’s John Moore to grab the 2017 championship.  2015 Rookie of the Year Cole Moore finished third with one victory while two-time winner Matt Wendt, the 2016 Rookie of the Year, was fourth in the final rundown.  2017 Rookie of the Year Jack Wood was unable to grab a win but still finished fifth in the championship ahead of his cousin Travis Milburn.  El Dorado Hills’ Jason Romero, Valley Springs’ Tracy Bolin, Elk Grove’s Mike Hite, and Pine Grove’s Matt Scott made up the rest of the top-ten.  Other winners included Derek Copeland at Shasta, Jeff Bischofberger at Stockton, and Randy Hedrick at Ukiah.

CURTAIN RAISES ON PACIFIC CHALLENGE SERIES SATURDAY AT MADERA

SACRAMENTO, CALIFORNIA (March 13, 2018) – Madera Speedway’s busy spring continues with the opening round of the 2018 Pacific Challenge Series presented by PenneyLawyers.com on Saturday evening, with 75 laps of Super Late Model action on tap.  It will mark the sixth series appearance at the popular one-third mile speedway.

PCS Super Late Models will be paired with the potent Western Winged Sprints and USAC Western US Midgets providing fans with plenty of open wheel racing as well.  Modified Super Toyotas, F4s, and a Jr. Late Model exhibition race round out the busy card.

Parity has been the name of the game in the PCS for several seasons including six first-time winners in last year’s series.  Carlos Vieira won the Madera season opener for his first career win.  Popular Late Model and tour car standout Jacob Gomes has two career PCS wins – both at Madera.

Modesto’s Mike Beeler narrowly topped Granite Bay’s John Moore to grab the 2017 championship.  2015 Rookie of the Year Cole Moore finished third with one victory while two-time winner Matt Wendt, the 2016 Rookie of the Year, was fourth in the final rundown.  2017 Rookie of the Year Jack Wood was unable to grab a win but still finished fifth in the championship ahead of his cousin Travis Milburn.  El Dorado Hills’ Jason Romero, Valley Springs’ Tracy Bolin, Elk Grove’s Mike Hite, and Pine Grove’s Matt Scott made up the rest of the top-ten.  Other winners included Derek Copeland at Shasta, Jeff Bischofberger at Stockton, and Randy Hedrick at Ukiah.

Saturday’s show will be run as an early season “matinee”.  Friday practice will open activities with pit gates opening at 3 pm and practice from 5pm – 8pm.  On Saturday, pit gates will open early at 10am with practice running from 11am -1:15pm.  Qualifying will follow.  The American Racer Tire dash will be at 3:15 with main events to follow.  The 75 lap feature is the final race scheduled for the exciting evening, tentatively going green at 5:30pm.

Ticket Prices are $15 for adults, $13 for seniors and military, $7 for youth ages 6-12 and kids five and under are free

2015 PCS champion John Moore of Granite Bay and 2014 champion Mike Beeler of Modesto are tied in the points standings in the tightest championship battle in series history.  Saturday’s event is the tenth race of the 2017 series and decides the champion for the first time since 2014.  The 2015 and 2016 editions were non-points races won by Moore and Jason Romero respectively.  Romero has generally had Roseville’s number in PCS competition as the 2009 track champion has accumulated five wins including most recently on September 16th in the ninth race of the series.  His victory made him the ninth different winner this season as well.
Madera season opener winner Carlos Vieira will make his first Roseville PCS start at the one-third mile oval and joins Ukiah winner Randy Hedrick of Reno, NV as some of the stronger entries for the race.  Three-time Roseville champion Matt Scott is still in search of his first PCS series win and may be in a prime position to do so on Saturday night.  Granite Bay’s Cole Moore, the 2016 Rookie of the Year, was the other Roseville PCS winner in 2017 and is third in the series standings.
Stockton September 2nd winner Matt Wendt is fourth in the points ahead of 2017 Rookie of the Year Jack Wood.  Wood’s cousin Travis Milburn of Eagle, ID is in sixth.  Romero, 2016 Shasta winner Tracy Bolin, Mike Hite of Elk Grove, and Scott round out the top-ten.
Roseville favorites Shannon Mansch, the 2009 Westcar Late Model champion, and JR Courage are both entered.  Former Rose Classic champion Tim Bost will make his first PCS start in several seasons as well.  Shasta regular Ryan Peeples has a pair of ninth place finishes in his PCS Roseville starts and will aim for his first career top-five on Saturday.  Six-time Madera Speedway Jr. Late Model main event winner Austin Herzog, 15, will look to improve on a sixth place Roseville finish two weeks ago.  Fellow Jr. Late Model racer Kolby Berry is expected to make his series debut as well.
Activities get underway Friday with practices for every division competing except for the K&N division.  The only practice fee will be a $40 pit pass per person.  Gates open at 2 p.m. with practice running until 9 p.m.
