NorCal already having about 6 or 7 410 and 360 winged series, Kyle Larson and Rico Abreu have burst on the scene with a new series. "The Sprint Car Challenge" 360 winged series. With a 13 race schedule the first 4 event car counts have been 58,63, 50 and 49. Not only high car counts but the joints are packed with fannies in the seats. Living in SoCal, LA, our sprint car choices are limited to USAC/CRA nonwing at Perris. That series suffers low car counts and domination by one or drivers not to mention a track management hostile to fans. Here's a link.  https://www.sprintcarchallengetour.com/

SCCT is as good as the press says it is.   Your post was interesting to us as we prefer nonwing sprint, and run CRA Sprint Week.  We hope to have another shot at a NorCal 360/410 nonwing series like Tommy Hunt worked so hard years ago to get us up here.    

Have you spoken with Don K at Perris?  He cared enough to build the track.  He may need to reassign some employees to sweeping the parking lot until their customer service improves.  It is a great facility.  Is traffic a major obstacle?  Purses too low?  What's missing?  I wonder if the Agajanians could work with Don on reinvigorating the racing down there.  We loved racing Turkey night at Irwindale with the Agajanian name behind it.

David Abreu is the catalyst behind SCCT along with several other key players up here.  David is also the reason Calistoga Speedway has had decades of overdue improvements done in a few short and very expensive years for him.   Great person and business man.  Rico and Kyle help with appearances and racing SCCT when they can, but they're not the management or promotors.  Kyle Larson Racing is also a contingency sponsor.

the series is a total success due to the fact that people have put their money where their mouth .  david abreau, rico abreau, kyle larson and many more know that it takes money to make money and they have a chitload of it to go around.  they have put quality personel in strategic locations  that love the sport as we all do.  as they say within the series "we need to give back" to the local dirt tracks and encourage all to attend to see for themselves.  what could be better than that?  with that being said rico won his third dave bradway memorial event here in chico last night...

 


Ascot was the greatest of all time..

West Capital wasn't half bad either..

Life is good...

I learned at Ventura last Sat that Perris will not allow fans to leave the track, if they do they must buy another admisson. With their food nazi policy where your bags are rifled by socalled security they have created a gulag by the Ramona, thus making fans prisoners forced to buy overpriced food if they are hungry. I doubt if Kasarian is the author of this probably the fair board with their using Perris security as a way to increase youth employment. I too was a wingless only fan till I started going to NorCal where rookies win races and the competion is so intense. Wings are that much faster then nonwings and lifting is not an option. There is a farm system consisting of Lemoore and Visalia where most drivers learned as kids running micros. Was at Ventura Sat., 12 410;s ran with the rest of the field non USAC 360's. Trophy Cup at Tulare is far and away the best racing of the year. BTW USAC midgets at Ventura. Midgets were my first love and remain so.

I too was at Ventura Saturday night and you said out of the 24 sprint cars in the feature, only 12 were 410's? The other 12 were 360? I did not know that and learn something new everyday. I am new to the SoCal racing scene, but seems there is not much here, NorCal is the place to be for dirt track racing.
