PETALUMA, Ca. (March 26, 2018) – The C&H Veteran Ent. presents Hunt Magnetos Wingless Tour is ready to hit the track for round number three in the championship battle, which takes place this Saturday night March 31 at the Petaluma Speedway.
This weekend’s event marks the first of three season appearances at the Sonoma-Marin Fairgrounds based 3/8-mile adobe clay oval. Return engagements for the tour at the speedway will occur on Saturday June 16, followed by the seventh annual Soares Classic on Saturday August 25.
C&H Veteran Ent. presents Hunt Magnetos Wingless Tour Director Rick Faeth also happens to be the promoter of Petaluma Speedway and he spoke about having the traveling series on hand Saturday. “We look forward to having the C&H Hunt Wingless Sprints at Petaluma Speedway this weekend. The first two events have been very competitive and we should see more of the same on Saturday. It’ll be exciting to see who comes out on top and scores the $1200 top prize.”
After picking up his first career tour win last time out Shawn Jones sits atop the standings heading into Petaluma Speedway this weekend. The versatile driver that also spends time in a Dwarf Car claimed a big victory on March 10 at Silver Dollar Speedway’s Silver Cup Race of Champions.
Troy Degaton is also coming off a great run at the Silver Cup where he charged from the rear of the field to finish in third. Degaton goes into Petaluma just 12-points behind Jones and will hope for another solid outing to keep pace in the standings. Also starting off the year in successful fashion have been Angelique Bell, Scott Hall and Sparky Howard who rank third, fourth and fifth respectively. All three will hope to park it in victory lane come Saturday.
