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.

Truck Fest 2013: Smokey Big Rigs Burnouts & Drag Racing Revealed
( http://www.TFLtruck.com ) When you think of a Big Rig Semi...you probably
don't immediately think of drag racing...or do you? This weekend at
Bandimere Speedway just outside of Denver, Colorado hundreds of Big Rig
Semi trucks lined up on the drag strip to see which one is the kind of the
mile high drag strip and which one is the fastest mile high pickup
dragster. Can a big rig run a sub 20 second quarter mile? You bet. Can a
big rig run a sub 15 mile....no problem. Can a Big Rig run a sub 10 second
time? You'll have to watch the video to find out. In another fun and
informative TFLtruck video we see what happens when the Big Rig Semi Trucks
line up behind the Christmas Tree.

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.
