SEXTON’S BACK HOME AT BARONA SPEEDWAY SATURDAY!
(Lakeside, CA, August 9, 2019) Sexton/Gatlin Racing will be back on its home track, the Barona Speedway, when the POWRi California Lightning Sprint Car Series comes to town this Saturday night, August 10th. It will be the fifth race of the season for the Lakeside based team on the San Diego County oval in 2019.
This week’s Sexton/Gatlin lineup will be comprised of Brent Sexton and his teenage racing sons Dalton and Grant. In the previous two CLS races at Barona this year, Brent has the best finish of the trio with a second on May 18th. Dalton and Grant both had their best CLS outings on the track on the same night with a 12th and 14th respectively. However, both were knocked out of the April 6th race while running in the top five. Grant was fourth early in that race when a broken tie rod sent him into the crashwall and a subsequent flip. Late in that race, Dalton was in the top five when another driver punted him into the wall.
The family of racers fared better in the two wingless races staged at Barona this year. Brent has a second and a third, Dalton a has a third and a sixth and Grant has an eighth-place finish. In addition, David Bezio took a team car to the win on June 29th.
Going into Saturday’s race, Dalton ranks 12th in the CLS championship standings. Grant, last year’s CLS Rookie of the Year, is 14th. Brent is one spot behind in 15th.
For fans who wish to attend Saturday’s race at the Barona Speedway, gates will open at noon and the first race will take the green flag at 5:00. The track is located at 1754 Wildcat Road in Lakeside (92040). The track website is https://baronaspeedway.com/ and the office phone number is (619) 749-8115.
