Rio Vista, CA – (March 6, 2013) – Visalia, California based companies BR Motorsports and King Racing Products are pleased to announce that they will continue their partnership with the King of the West 410 Sprint Car Series by presenting the Fast Time Award and the Show Maker Award once again.

Qualifying is always critical part of the program each night and BR Motorsports will award the driver that sets fast time at every King of the West Sprint Car Series event with a $100 product certificate. Last season parody reigned supreme in qualifying, as 12 different drivers set a “BR Motorsports Fast Time” out of the 17 races that were held.

The “Show Maker Award” will be given to the driver that earns the final transfer spot into the A-main event from the Last Chance Qualifier. King Racing Products will award that driver with a $100 product certificate. If no LCQ is run during a particular night then the award will go to the last place finisher in the A-main.

“We’re excited to have Blake Robertson and BR Motorsports, along with King Racing Products back with the King of the West Sprint Car Series this season,” said KWS Operations Manager George Hague. “It’s always nice to have great companies like BR Motorsports & King Racing support 410 Sprint Cars in California and it’s another key piece of our overall contingency program for the 2013 year.”

To be eligible for the “BR Motorsports Fast Time Award” and “King Racing Products Show Maker Award” teams must display each company’s decal respectively on both sides of the top wing at King of the West Series events. The decals will be provided each night at the KWS command center.

The 2013 racing season for the King of the West 410 Sprint Car Series will get underway on Saturday April 20 at the Antioch Speedway in Antioch, California.

Hirst last year drove the Roth Motorsports mount to a King of the West victory in Antioch and also claimed the 50-lap finale at the prestigious Trophy Cup in Tulare.

Just a few of the other title contenders are sure to include Sacramento’s Willie Croft, who is behind the wheel of the Clyde Lamar owned 3c machine this year, 13-time champion Brent Kaeding, former titlist Jason Statler, Clovis fan favorite Peter Murphy, past Silver Dollar Speedway 410 champ Bobby McMahan, former Trophy Cup titlist Craig Stidham and more.
