(JULY 21, 2010, RIVERSIDE, CA) For Riverside, California Sprint Car racer David Cardey, one streak came to an end last week at Perris Auto Speedway while another hopes to continue this Saturday at Victorville Auto Raceway. Cardey’s winning streak of five straight wins in as many starts was halted by a second place finish at the ASCS race at The PAS, but he hopes to make it three wins in a row on the High Desert this Saturday night.
Getting a ride a little more than 24 hours before last Saturday’s race at The PAS, Cardey looked quite comfortable in his first ever ASCS race. Driving for car owner Bob Bishop, Cardey started dead last (ninth) in his heat race. By the time the eight-lap race was over, he had worked his way up to fourth. Not bad for the first time in the car. That placed him in the third row on the inside for his eight lap-qualifying race. Cardey quickly found his way to the front and won the qualifier by nearly a half straightaway.
ASCS does not have qualifying. The starting positions in the heat races are determined by a pill draw. Later in the program points accumulated on the night determine starting positions for the qualifying races and the main event. After his heat and qualifier, Cardey was third in points and started inside the second row in the 30-lap A main. Spending most of the race in the third and fourth spots, Cardey moved up to second late in the race. That was as far as he would get and his five race-winning streak came to an end.
This Saturday, Cardey will climb back behind the wheel of Don Blair’s black #12 Sprint Car at the Victorville Auto Raceway as he seeks his third win in a row on the San Bernardino County Fairgrounds. Spectator gates will open at 4:30 at Victorville and the first race will be at 6:00. Cardey will be back behind the wheel of his own red #59 Sprint Car when the USAC/CRA Series returns to Perris Auto Speedway on July 31st.
