RECAP OF AN AMAZING OPENING WEEKEND AT KERN COUNTY RACEWAYadmin
A Dirt and Asphalt double header kicked off the season for Kern County Raceway, March 15th and 16th. The much anticipated weekend didn’t disappoint as large crowds were thrilled and entertained by great racing and family fun at both venues.
Friday Night on The Dirt track at KCRP saw the season start with open wheel action. The 360 Non-Wing Sprint Cars, The debut of the POWRi BCRA Midgets, and The Bakersfield Hard Tops had the fans on the edge of their seats all night! Earning victories that night were Austin Liggett (360 Non-Wing Sprint Cars), Chase Johnson (POWRi BCRA Midgets), and Rich Souza (Bakersfield Hardtops)
Saturday, the action switched to the asphalt, where over 3,000 fans enjoyed “Faith and Family Night” presented by KGET-17 and 88.3 LIFE FM.
Local Churches came out in force to have a great night of fellowship and fun and to cheer on the local Pastors in the annual Faster Pastor Race! Troy Morris Sr. made a last lap, final corner pass to win! Troy is the Senior Pastor of New Beginnings Church in Bakersfield.
In racing action on the half-mile, Jace Jones and Lawless Allen were victorious in the Late Models, Chris Dalton won his fifth in a row in the Super Stocks, and Jim Coffey earned his third consecutive opening night victory in the Modified Division.
