2018 Pacific Challenge Series Schedule Adds Two At Shasta



Via PCS Media

SACRAMENTO, CALIFORNIA (February 14, 2018) – The Pacific Challenge Series presented by PenneyLawyers.com has continued to develop its calendar for 2018 with the addition of two races at Anderson’s Shasta Speedway. The 3/8ths mile speedway will host the Super Late Model series on April 21st and June 23rd.

Shasta Speedway has been a wildcard track for the last two years in the PCS, and a large part of why the series has enjoyed very few drivers able to earn repeat wins. A strong contingent of local teams with PCS equipment makes for a fan-friendly show. Tracy Bolin and Derek Copeland each earned their first career series wins at the speedway.

In 2013, the series visited Shasta four times with Eric Schmidt earning a remarkable sweep of the races en route to the PCS championship.

The races at Shasta join previously announced events on March 17th and August 11th at the one-third mile Madera Speedway, July 21st at the historic Stockton 99 Speedway, and October 13th at Roseville’s All American Speedway. An additional two more races at Roseville are expected to be confirmed along with one or two more races TBA to bring the tour to a nine or ten race campaign for 2018.

The Pacific Challenge Series is presented by: Penney Racing Supply, Penney & Associates, American Racer Tires, Radio Law Talk, Compact-It, Northwest Compactors, Naake Suspension, Sunoco Fuels, Five Star Bodies, BrakeOMeter, Lefthander Chassis, ARP Bodies, Joes Racing Products, Bassett Wheels, Frank's Radio, WrapStar Pro, and Blakesley Sports Media.

Release prepared by Blakesley Sports Media

BAKERSFIELD, CALIFORNIA (February 14, 2018) – Friday’s scheduled round #5 of Open Outlaw Karts at Bakersfield Karting Experience has been postponed to Friday February 23rd after a scheduling conflict. The 1/10th mile dirt oval will be very busy on the 23rd as the Open Outlaw Karts will join the already scheduled Stock and Open dirt flat karts for a three division show.

The last time karts and Outlaw Karts raced on the same program was on January 20th during the Bakersfield Indoor Kart Nationals, where Mitch Cornelius won the $200 Clone kart main event and Tate Sanders won the $1000 Open Outlaw nationals.

Next Friday’s 25-lap feature for the Open Outlaws will pay $400 to win out of a $1000 purse for a series that has averaged 20 entries in its inaugural season.

Bakersfield Pro Stock champion Tim Randolph won the series debut in December before IMCA Modified standout Ethan Dotson claimed round two. Bakersfield Speedway Modified champion Brad Pounds and Sanders are the other two main event winners this year. Pounds currently enjoys a 22 point advantage in the standings.

With all four races swept by Bakersfield drivers and no repeat winners so far, the competition level will be intense heading into round five. Drivers such Larry Moody and Bryan Watson – 2nd and 3rd in points respectively – will be looking to get their shot on top of the podium on Friday.

General admission tickets will be $10 next Friday night with live music adding to the festivities. Pit gates open at 2 p.m. with drivers meeting at 6:30 p.m. and racing at 7 p.m. Pit passes are $20.

The state of the art facility is Bakersfield’s newest complete entertainment venue, with RC car racing, oval dirt kart racing, golf simulator, arcade games, and food and drink specials. BKE is open to the public 7 days a week with karts available for rent for a single race or for group outings. Birthday parties and private room rentals round out the extensive options for a night out or for a great get together.

Outlaw Karts Return To Redwood Acres In 2018



Eureka, CA (February 7, 2018) – Outlaw kart action is set to return to the North Coast at the Redwood Acres Fairgrounds. It will be the third straight year of outlaw kart racing at the facility.

The new season brings new faces at the promoting level for the 1/10-mile dirt track which sits inside of the historic 3/8-mile paved Redwood Acres Raceway oval. Promoting duties have now been assumed by a coalition of Acres racers who are focused on continuing what was originally initiated in 2016.

Outlaw kart racing has grown in popularity across the United States in the past 15 years. While outlaw karts have served as a place for young drivers to get their start in racing, it has also served as a place where family and friends get together to enjoy a day of competition and comradery. Prior to 2016, the nearest outlaw kart tracks in the region were in Red Bluff and Lakeport. Since the first race two years ago, interest and participation on the local level has continued to develop while several visitors from out of town have also taken to the track.

All five divisions will be returning including the Champagne Attorney Service beginner box stocks, the Williamson Financial box stocks, the Steve’s Septic Service 125cc/250cc karts, the 500cc/open karts and the Fortuna Wheel & Brake old fart karts. Six races are on the 2018 docket for the Humboldt Outlaw Karts Presented by Steve’s Septic Service and Wes Green Landscaping with the first event of the season occurring on April 21st.

For more information including the full 2018 schedule and the rules for all of the divisions for the Humboldt Outlaw Karts, please visit www.humboldtoutlawkarts.com or Humboldt Outlaw Karts on Facebook.
