Marysville CA -
August 28, 2013 ---
The mighty Winged Pacific
Sprint Cars will headline the show this Saturday night
at Paul and Kathy Hawes’ Marysville Raceway Park. It
will be the 14th Annual Yuba City Scrap & Steel Ice
Cream night at the races. The MRP Wingless Sprint
Cars, he MRP Super Stocks, Hobby Stocks and the Nor
Cal Dwarf Cars will also return to the raceway in
championship point racing competition. This 14th
annual Yuba City Scrap and Steel offering celebrates
the birthdays of 5-time Winged Pacific Sprint Car
champion Korey Lovell and his twin brother Kevin, also
a sprint car star at MRP. While Kevin competes
infrequently these days, he’s always at the annual
celebration. Korey has been as quick as ever after mid
season mechanical issues sidelined him.
3-way fight at the top of the MRP Winged Pacific
Sprint Car Series remains tight but it looks like a
two horse race at this juncture with 2 races remaining
on the schedule. There is also a knot at the top of
the MRP Super Stock standings. The Hobby Stock war
between local drivers Eddie Hammett and defending MRP
champ Jeremy Hammons renews Saturday as well.
In the MRP Winged Sprint Car class championship point
leader Billy Wallace of Grass Valley in Mark Moore’s
slick, black hot rod remains atop the standings. Grass
Valley’s Jeremy Burt won last Saturday night and took
a big chunk out of Wallace’s point lead. Burt is still
2nd in the standings in his Slater Antiques Sprint
Car, now just 21 points off the pace. There is a
potential 50 point swing available at each event. But,
Burt, last Saturday did what he had to do to stay in
the hunt. Winning helps everything. Burt is well known
for late season charges and, it’s time to charge after
a dismal (by Burt’s standards) mid season. The ever
popular Mike Monahan in his Superior Hydraulics
Sprinter out of Sparks, Nevada is still in the hunt.
He is 3rd in the standings but took a pretty hard hit
in the points last week. Wallace is looking for his
3rd consecutive title and remains 5th in the all time
win column in the winged sprint cars. He has 27 main
Marysville’s Derek and Brandon
Dozier (cousins) will have another fine shot at a win.
Brandon has been particularly daring in the last few
outings after his victory a few weeks ago in the
Performance Auto Supply car #95. Oroville’s Heath Hall
will return in the Hight Motorsports entry looking for
his 1st win of the 2013 campaign. Veteran Jimmy
Steward of Auburn will be in the field along with
veteran hot-shoe Peter Paulson from Woodland. Paulson
has won this season as well. 3 time champion Colby
Wiesz; “The Colfax Comet”, is expected to be in the
field again Saturday. His 52 feature event victories
at MRP remains the all-time record in the sprinters.
Once again, two remarkable lady winged sprint car
stars are expected. 1st year sensation Raquel Hall
will be looking for her 1st trip to victory lane.
Orland’s Reyna Krueger is a 4 time winner in the
winged sprint cars.
In addition to the $1000
in cash for the feature event winner, the Legal Shield
Quick Time Shootout will pay $100 for fast time at
this event. The Contingency Connection Bonus program
will offer some $1100 in additional bonuses to the
The wild slides of the MRP Wingless
Sprint Cars will also be offered as Marysville’s
Jeremy Hawes tries to stretch his win streak to 5 in a
row in his continuing quest for a title in that
division. Anderson’s Rowdy McClenon will try to keep
the lid on his quickly disappearing point lead. Only 5
points separate the two with a 50 point swing possible
on any night. It will also be interesting to see if
2009 champion Cort Dozier will cruise in and spoil the
proceedings. Dozier led until he broke last time out.
Neither championship contender had anything for Dozier
until he retired. Dozier has been a rock-solid
contender since taking the controls in the #97
The Rookie of the Year point
standings in the MRP Wingless Sprint Car division is
very close. Misty Castleberry and Wheatland’s Johnny
Burns have traded the lead back and forth. Castleberry
got back by Burns last time out as the latter pulled
off with mechanical woes.
With 3 races to go
and only 5 points separating the contenders, it’s a
tight knot at the top of this class.
Auburn’s Ray Trimble will try to hold off the
challenges of local favorites Sean Hulsey, Brad
Magenheimer and the fearless veteran Cort Dozier.
Dozier lost the point lead when consecutive mechanical
failures turned his season in the Supers upside down.
A similar situation happened to James Castleberry. He,
too, had the point lead when consecutive mechanical
failures seemingly dashed his hopes for a title.
Hulsey and Magenheimer have both been in the picture
of late though victory lane has eluded them. Trimble,
who has won, remains cool and consistent with up front
finishes when he can’t win.
Look for some
paint to be traded as the MRP Hobby Stocks return with
their slam-bang show. Local driver Jeremy Hammons can
cement a 2nd consecutive title with consistent
finishes in the final shows. Watch for Eddie Hammett
to try to spoil the party.
The traveling Nor
Cal Dwarf Cars are also making a stop at MRP Saturday.
The Easter egg colored racers put on an excellent show
at MRP. This will be one of two stops the dwarf cars
will make at MRP in advance of their annual Nationals
held at MRP in September.
