Bakersfield, CA (June 23, 2015) – The focus of Kern County Raceway shifted a bit last Saturday night. There was the usual great racing, with Lance Wilson edging out Eric Richardson by .030 of a second to win the first NASCAR Late Model Main Event and with Paul Ebersbacher, beating Perrin Kootstra to the line in the NASCAR Super Stocks by the same margin, indeed there was no shortage of excitement at the track on June 20th.

Braydens Family, was treated to a luxury suite courtesy of Coca-Cola, and with the generosity of KCRP’S great race fans, and amazing local companies that purchased blocks of tickets, over $17,000 was raised for the Eidenshink Family. Kern County Raceway would like to send special thanks to Johnny Bedingfield and his family, Susan Williams, CODSCORP, Scientific Drilling, Trinity Safety Company, BTUFF Magazine, Pensingers, Bedingfield’s Auto, Patriot Environmental, ARRC Technology, WestAir, Agape Mortgage, Auto Graphics, Muscle Grub, Wesco Performance, Pelletiere Winery, Thomas Hill Organics, Motor City Lexus, Noodle Bar, Johnny Garlic’s, Color Me Mine, Carls JR, Red Moose Cookie, Advance Beverage, DMW Industries, Johasee Rebar, Johnny Williamson State Farm Insurance, Travis George Trucking, Pace Diversified, Hill Threaded Products, Vintage Limousine and all those who donated, purchased tickets and attended this special night for a brave young man.
