Winter Blast Racing to Heat Up February Saturday Night at the Lucas Oil I
After some time off in December for the holidays and January to allow the
extreme cold temperatures to pass, the Lucas Oil I 10 Speedway will reopen
their spectator gates this Saturday night, February 5th, to resume their
2011 portion of their famed Winter Blast Racing Series. The quarter mile
paved oval is located at the Colorado River Fairgrounds in
Blythe-California. The evening is sponsored by the local Domino's Pizza
On the schedule will be racing from the speedway's street stock and factory
stock divisions along with special appearances by the Gene Price
Motorsports Late Model River Series and the Southwest Tour Trucks. Saturday
night's action is expected to be intense because the drivers will be racing
for double points. That could prove to be most interesting because some of
these division championship standings, heading into the final three months
of the schedule, are too close to call.
This is especially true of the speedway's street stock division where a
mere 12 points separates the top four drivers. Chris Vindhurst, on the
strength of three consecutive top five finishes, leads the standings with
184 points. But it's only a two point advantage over Danny Dill. The
2007-2008 Winter Blast street stock champion has a feature win and three
top five finishes which has created his 182 points. In turn Dill is
actually tied for second with local street stock veteran D J Lonie who also
has a feature win and three top five finishes. Still within striking
distance, and only 12 markers from the top of the standings, is Connor
Sprawls. Any combination of good and bad racing luck on a double points
night could greatly alter these street stock standings.
The fan favorite factory stock division will also be returning to action at
the speedway Saturday night featuring their anything goes, racing is
rubbing, format. A red hot Michael White leads the factory stock standings
with 58 points. In his last three appearances the local driver has two wins
and a second place finish. He goes into Saturday night with a 12 point lead
over Tom Nordell who has compiled a feature win and two top five finishes
this season. Still within striking distance, especially with double points
on the line, are drivers Robert Spivey and Roger Gilstrap who are third and
fourth in the standings.
The Gene Price Motorsports Late Model River Series will be making their
second appearance of the season at the Lucas Oil I 10 Speedway Saturday
night. Sponsored by the famed race car fabrication shop and high
performance parts center located in Parker-Arizona, this series includes a
special eight race points championship at both Blythe and the Havasu 95
Speedway in Lake Havasu City-Arizona.
Race number five of the series also features double points and a
championship battle that is extremely close. In fact only ten points
separates the top four drivers. The extremely consistent Bobby Keirns leads
the series' current standings with 136 points based on four consecutive top
five finishes. The Lake Havasu City driver, who is no stranger to late
model track championships, will have his hands full Saturday night with the
presence of Mark Schriner yet another driver who well understands what it
takes to win a championship. Based on a series win, two top five finishes
and one top ten, Schriner is only two points behind Keirns and that's
largely due to circumstances which forced him to miss the January 22nd race
in Arizona. Not to be overlooked here is the presence of drivers Mike
Sutterfield and Rob Munoz who are tied for third in the standings and only
ten markers away from the top.
Also making a major contribution to the Lucas Oil I 10 Speedway action will
be the Southwest Tour Trucks who be officially opening their 2011 season
this Saturday night. This regional touring series features full sized
racing trucks and is very exciting. 2010 season champion Jeff Williams is
expected to lead the truck teams and is expected to be as tough of a
competitor as he was last year when he won seven of the series' 11 events.
But Williams can also expect plenty of competition coming from the likes of
drivers Neil Conrad, Mike Zimmerman, Cecil Phelps and Ed Cutler.
The Lucas Oil I 10 Speedway weekend begins on Friday night with a test and
tune session for all of the racing divisions from 6 to 9 pm. This test
session if free to spectators. On Saturday, Domino's Pizza race day, the
spectator gates will open at 4 pm with the racing getting underway at 6 pm.
Saturday ticket prices are $10 general admission and $8 for seniors 55
plus, military personnel and the handicapped. Teen tickets, ages 13 to 17,
are $5 with kid's tickets, six to 12, set at $3. Kids five and under will
be admitted free
