For Immediate Release


(Placentia, CA, April 13, 2011) This Saturday night, April 16th, red hot Kevin Michnowicz will lead the California Light Sprint Car Series into the most picturesque race track in the USA, the Ventura Speedway, for the first of two appearances in 2011. Joining the CLS on the multi-class program will be the powerful VRA Sprint Cars, Senior Sprints, IMCA Modifieds, Pro Dwarf Cars and the Go Carts. Spectator gates will open at 3:00 PM and the first race will begin at 5:30.

Michnowicz, 17, of Lomita, California has been near perfect through the first two CLS races of the season at Perris Auto Speedway. He was fast qualifier and won the main event each night. He also won his heat at the last race two weeks ago. The only blemish on his record was a second place finish in his heat at the season opener on March 12th.

While Michnowicz has been near perfect, so has Wildomar veteran Tim Brown. At both of the first two races, Brown has been second to Michnowicz in the main event and only trails the leader by seven points heading into this Saturday's "Commotion by the Ocean." Third in the point standings heading into Saturday's race is 13-year-old Sheldon Creed of San Diego with the Orange County duo of Guy Maresch (Anaheim Hills) and Dan Hillberg (Placentia) rounding out the top five.

After Saturday race at Ventura, the CLS will take a week off before heading to the Bakersfield Speedway on Saturday, April 30th.

The California Lightning Sprint Car Series would like to thank the following sponsors for their support in the 2011 season: Performance by Rosson Racing, DK Machine and Fabrication , Sander Engineering, Elliott's Powder Coating, Circle Track Performance, Hoosier Tires, Racing Optics and the Christian Stover Foundation.
