Havasu 95 Speedway To Wave Green Flag On Its Winter Series This Saturday

By Dave Grayson

Using the fun title of "Nuts About Racing", the Havasu 95 Speedway returns to action this Saturday with round two of its 2016 - 2017 winter racing season. The famed quarter mile paved oval, located in beautiful Lake Havasu City-Arizona, will be presenting hot racing action from their Get It In Gear Street Stocks, Havasu Wiring Outlaw Karts, Sam Nichols Electric Factory Stocks and, making their winter season debut, the Flower Assisted Living Team Factory Stocks. The spectator gates will open at 4 pm with the green flag falling on the racing action at 6pm. This evening of race fan fun is being presented by the locally owned and operated Carquest Auto Parts and Big O Tires.

The current points standings for the Get It In Gear Street Stocks are based on the October 1st season opener but it's already apparent that this exciting division is going to, once again, be the lynch pin of the speedway's still young racing season. Tyler Savage goes into Saturday night leading the championship standings with 53 points closely followed by Garrett Reinoso-48 with series veteran William Guevara and reigning division champion Bobby Keirns tied for third at 46 points each.

The Havasu Wiring Outlaw Karts have turned out to be the latest level of Havasu 95 Speedway excitement racing on a dirt course carved out in the speedway's infield area. Their October 1st season debut featured double main events with the results showing drivers Luke Silber and Taylor Whitefield tied with 98 points each followed by drivers Korbin Mitchell and Aiden McCorkle tied for third at 90 points each.

The points standings for the Sam Nichols Electric Factory Stocks is indicating that reigning series champion Brent Delay is planning to pick up a title run where he left off. An October 1st main event win places him on top of the standings with 50 points. However, right behind him are drivers Jeff Prieur at 48 points, Chris Blackwell-46 with drivers Jeremy Orozco and Jose Guevara tied for fourth at 44 points each.

The Flowers Assisted Living Team Factory Stocks will be making their season debut this Saturday night. This racing division features a concept of having three rotating drivers. Team Take and Bake are the reigning series champions following a close title run that saw them finish a mere four points over the Asphalt Junkies and six points over EWWWWEEEE Racing.

General admission tickets, age 17 and up, for Saturday night are $12 and $10 for seniors, military personnel and the handicapped. Tickets for kids, age six to 16, are $6 with kids age five and under admitted free. The speedway also offers a budget friendly family package, value priced at $25, which admits two adults and two kids. Fans can also enjoy the special amenities of the VIP section, featuring the best seats in the house, for $25.
