Havasu 95 Speedway To Present "Nitro Turkey Racing" This Saturday

By Dave Grayson

The Havasu 95 Speedway will be presenting their traditional Thanksgiving weekend special racing show, with the very clever name of "Nitro Turkey Racing", this Saturday afternoon. This event is a special day race. The spectator gates will open at 12pm with the racing action receiving the green flag at 2pm. This full day of winter season racing is being presented by the Anderson Group and Pinstriping By Chris, (909 208 7016). The famed quarter mile paved oval is located within the Sara Park complex in beautiful Lake Havasu City, Arizona.

Providing the on track action will be the speedway's Late Model division, the Office Cocktail Lounge Bandoleros, the Sam Nichols Electric Factory Stocks, and the Flower Assisted Living Team Factory Stocks. There will also be a special appearance from the Pony Stocks with many of their team towing in from Southern California the location of their home track: the Orange Show Speedway.

The speedway's Late Model division will be making their 2016 - 2017 winter season debut this Saturday and will treat their fans to a 100 lap main event. Trevor Huddleston, the 2015 - 2016 reigning is expected to be on hand to defend his title. He can expect plenty of competition from drivers Bobby Keirns, a former Havasu Late Model champion, along with Jeff Peterson, Matt Goodwin and Mark Allison. All of these competitive drivers finished in the top five of the championship points at the conclusion of last year's winter racing season.

The Sam Nichols Electric Factory Stocks will be making their fifth appearance of this season this Saturday afternoon. Jeff Prieur has been the division's hot shoe so far and leads the championship points standings with 203 points based on a consistent three feature wins and a runner up finish. However, he's only nine points ahead of driver Chris Blackwell who had logged four top five finishes, with two of them being second place runs.

The Flowers Assisted Living Team Factory Stocks is a concept that features three rotating drivers. The series will be making its second appearance of the current winter season season this Saturday afternoon. The aforementioned Jeff Prieur won the division's first main event with Jose Guevara finishing second. The series' teams will be racing on a special oval carved out in the speedway's dirt infield area which should present a strong challenge for the drivers as well as a high level of entertainment for the fans.

The Office Cocktail Lounge Bandoleros will be making their second appearance of the winter racing season. Brock Rogers won the series' season debut and will go into next Saturday afternoon with a two point advantage, in the championship standings, over Ethan Deguevara. In fact, there are only 13 points the top eight drivers in those current points standings which indicates that the series is going to have an extremely competitive season. Remember, when you watch these youngsters race, you may very well be watching the future driving stars of tomorrow.

General admission tickets, age 17 plus, are $12 and $10 for seniors, age 55 plus, military personnel and the handicapped. Kid's tickets, age six to 16, are $6. 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 speedway's VIP package, featuring the best seats in the house, for only $25.
