BUD NIGHT AT THE RACES PRODUCES 2 FIRST TIME WINNERS

 

Bakersfield, CA (May 3rd, 2015) – Kern County Raceway's  Budweiser Night at the Races”, saw a great crowd take advantage of the “Budweiser Buyout” and 2 drivers earn their first victories of the 2015 season. With an exciting line up that featured four stock car divisions, 3 of those of the big half-mile, and two wheel action with Saturday Night Super Moto, fans weren’t disappointed.

Starting off the night, The NASCAR Mini Stocks. Winners of the first two races Stacy Evans in the #22, and Sam Peasha, driving the #5 machine started on the front row. Evans, the points leader, held the preferred inside line on the initial start, however, entering turn one, there was major contact between the two young guns. The net result of that contact put points leader Stacy Evans out of the race. On the restart it was a battle of veterans. Randy Smith, the defending division champ, would take the lead, with the #15 of Terry Pettit on his rear bumper. The two drivers would stay nose to tail until the final turn of the final lap. Smith driving the 41 car, over drove the final turn, and opened the door for Pettit to sneak to the inside and steal a win from the champ. A side by side drag race to the finish line would see Randy Smith beat Pettit by a fender for his first win of the year. Terry Pettit would finish 2nd, Sam Peasha 3rd.

Next up, the popular and growing division, the NASCAR Super Stocks. The #7 of Gene Fife, won the Budweiser Pole Award, and would start on the outside of the front row, with early season points leader #22 Johnny Bedingfield on the inside. The start of the race would be pivotal for the two drivers on the front row. Bedingfield would win the race into the first turn, with Fife sliding into the second spot. A hard charging Gene Fife, out of Tehachapi, CA, would start to make his move on lap 12. Fife was closing in fast on the leader, when his #7 got loose in the apex of turns 3 & 4, causing the car to spin, bringing out the only caution of the race. Bedingfield would hang on to win his second consecutive NASCAR Super Stock feature and extend his points lead. Fife would work his way from the back of the pack to finish second, Paul Ebersbacher would bring his #02 home 3rd.

COUSINS & BROTHERS WIN BIG AT KCRP SATURDAY NIGHT

 

Bakersfield, CA (April 26th, 2015) – For the Richardson and McClenny Families, Saturday Night at Kern County Raceway couldn’t have been better. Both clans walked away with wins that should make Sunday dinner at both households one to remember.

The 2014 NASCAR Late Model Champion, Brian Richardson, had yet to visit the winners circle in 2015 after recording double-digit victories just a year ago. Saturday night, he was on a mission to change that. Brian began the night by winning the “Budweiser Pole Award” and started on the front row of twin main event #1. Racin Vernon, by way of the invert started on the pole and chose the outside lane. However, the SummerRipe #4 of Richardson would win the drag race into turn 1, and pull out to an early lead. Points leader Eric Richardson, would battle for several laps for second with Vernon. The two cars made contact entering turn 3, creating a tire rub on the Action Recycling #51 of Vernon. The contact would send Vernon to the pits to make repairs and regroup for main event #2. The remainder of the first twin 35 would be dominated by the #4 car, as Brian Richardson picked up his first win of 2015. Points Leader Eric Richardson would finish second, #15 Lance Wilson, who had to swap a motor before the start of the main finished third, #5 Chris Dalton was fourth, with his top finish of the year, and the #40 of Cole Adamo rounded out the top 5.
