WINTER SHOWDOWN HISTORY – 2018
As we approach the 8th running of the ‘Winter Showdown’ at Kern County Raceway on March 25th, we look back at the previous seven races dating back to February 2015.
In 2018, 47 drivers took a time in qualifying, with the top 14 within .2 of a second. Buddy Shepherd and Derek Thorn were on the front row, with Daniel Hemric and Kyle Busch in row 2. After two previous starts at the Winter Showdown, Kyle Busch made it clear at the drop of the green flag that his third start would deliver his first win in the 300 lap event. Busch drove the KBM Mobile 1 Toyota to victory over Shepherd, Hemric, Ty Majeski and Noah Gragson. Derek Krause, Chris Davidson, Dominic Ursetta, Thorn and Craig Raudman rounded out the top 10.
