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.

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.

NEWS FROM IRWINDALE EVENT CENTER
FEBRUARY 8, 2013
MAVTV'S BRAND NEW "WON & DONE"
DRAG RACING SHOW DEBUT WOWS 'EM
AT IRWINDALE DRAGSTRIP ... AMERICAN REAL!
Action-Packed Show Matches Up Street-Stock Racers For Glory AND Money ...
Irwindale, Calif. (February 8, 2013) - The first episode of a brand new,
highly-competitive television show VERY aptly-named "Won & Done" was filmed
at the Dragstrip at Irwindale Event Center this past Thursday night in
front of an approving crowd of very excited fans. "It was a great night for
everyone," said track GM Bob Klein. "Our fans and our drivers were all
blown away by the show and the fact that the night's competitors for the TV
show are all chosen right at the track, they ran eight pairs last night,
and they paid our drivers $4,000 cash ... who doesn't like that."
The new show, set to begin airing in early spring, is an exclusive
production of MAVTV a new and very aggressive national TV network owned and
operated by Lucas Oil Products. The network's "American Real" could not be
a better way to explain a show like "Won & Done". Drag racing was born in
southern California and the name Irwindale stands out as one of storied
places where organized drag races first were run in the late 50's on tracks
like legendary IR...WIN...DALE RACEWAY that was located just across the 605
And the racing, as one might sense when the name Rich Christensen is
mentioned as one of the key components, was fierce. As the host of this
intense exercise that culminates in one run down the Irwindale track for
all the marbles,* this tall, tightly-wound guy kept the action on a full
boil from the first minute that the first pair was chosen for the first
match race of the evening until the last run of the evening at about 9:30.
HERE'S THE REAL DEAL: 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 car's VIN number is recorded and that
vehicle is DONE forever... Banned for life from the MAVTV show.
... AND HERE'S WHAT MAKES THAT DEAL WORK: Any vehicle that stays undefeated
for 10 races, wins a nice $50,000 bonus!
Rich Christensen created and hosts the series which features Morgan Lucas,
NHRA Top Fuel competitor and son of MAVTV owner Forrest Lucas. The
on-screen chemistry between the cool-as-a-cumber 300MPH+ driving star
(Lucas) and the white-hot negotiator, pot-stirrer, and manic race starter
(Christensen) is nothing but a pure delight.
Show episodes will be shot the 1st and 3rd Thursday of every month on the
Dragstrip at Irwindale Event Center in Irwindale, California from 2pm to
10pm. The show parings will be integrated into the track's regular Thursday
Night Test-N-Tune session. All fans of the show are welcome to attend.
*(which includes a 4"x 6" window sticker that simply says: WON & DONE and
that, after last Thursday night, was well on its way to becoming one of the
most coveted "win" decals in southern California drag racing. Stick ten of
them on your car, truck, or motorcycle and there's $50,000 bucks coming
