NASCAR Racing at Irwindale Speedway: Back To Front
Irwindale CA, Sep 28 2013 - It's great to have NASCAR back in Southern
California. The Whelen All-American Series is the reason for being --
Irwindale Event Center being a reasoned locale. Having started in March,
with 2 races left in the season and everything still up for grabs it's now
or never to make it happen.
NASCAR is racing for all folks, all ages and all types. At the on-track
autograph session Rodney "the Rodent" Peacher recalled how he bought his
way into racing with $400, no motor or transmission or any real idea what
he was doing. His signature Rodent mascot has finally made it to vinyl on
the hood [the stuffed rat kept blowing off during the race:)].
The Lucas Oil sponsored Late Models division offered drama for the
occasion. Season points leader Ryan Partridge had a vested interest in
remaining so -- against Toni McCray's hard charging desire to supplant the
leader. Each starting back in the pack (Ryan 6th), they both blew past the
pack; Ryan down low, Toni a little higher. Turns out a 1-2 finish -- watch
the video to see whom is which.
Save one pileup into the tires on turn one, the teams and drivers delivered
without compromise. Now with 1 night of races to decide, it's time for a
special delivery. Final races start 7 pm Saturday October 5 2013.

Two vehicles compete in a single drag race
where everything about the race is negotiable, from the lanes, the
distance, the car lengths and the start. One race, one negotiation, one
chance to get it right! Once the negotiation is finalized, the vehicles
line up and the first racer to the finish-line, wins. The winner earns $500
and the right to compete another day. The loser's VIN number is recorded
and that vehicle is DONE forever....banned for life from the show. Any
vehicle that stays undefeated for 10 races, will win a $50,000 bonus!
Rich Christensen created and will host the series which will also feature
Morgan Lucas, NHRA Top Fuel competitor and son of MAVTV owner Forrest

during their regular test-n-tune. All fans of the show are welcome to
NASCAR Series at Irwindale Event Center
Irwindale CA, Apr 1 2013 - NASCAR Action and Excitement at Irwindale Event
Center. Opening night 2013, the first of fourteen nights of renewed NASCAR
Whelen All-American action, is set for April 6 with a full card of racing
divisions and a fireworks show thrown in just for good measure (and to
celebrate the re-opening).
Country Rock Artist, Paul Scott will sing the National Anthem and perform
the album's first single, "NASCAR Crazy," live from the track to an opening
night crowd of 6,500 racing fans at Irwindale Speedway. Additionally, Scott
will wave the green flag to signal the start of the race.
First night fans will find a great line up of NASCAR divisions: Super Late
Models, Late Models, Super Stocks, and Mini Stocks will all go on the oval
tracks; and a wild and wacky Demolition Derby will close out the night.
Veteran drivers and rookies alike will all be on hand at Irwindale Speedway
that night ready to race on the track that has seen hundreds of champions
run thousands of laps over the years.
On April 6, fan gates will open at 5pm and the very popular On-Track
Autograph Session will start at 5:45. For fan/attendees that've never been
to Irwindale, the track's signature On-Track Autograph Session is something
that should not be missed. Every car, every driver, and key race team
member takes their place on the track's front straight and a great "meet
and greet" session takes place with autographs, photos, and a pre-race
party attitude that really gets the scene set for the night's racing.
