(AUGUST 19, 2010, RIVERSIDE, CA) David Cardey, the hottest Sprint Car driver west of the Mississippi, will begin the busiest stretch of the season this Saturday night, August 21st, at the Victorville Auto Speedway. A week from Saturday Cardey will race with the USAC/CRA Series at Perris Auto Speedway and in two weeks he will contest the 3rd Annual Louie Vermeil Classic at the Calistoga Speedway on the Napa County Fairgrounds.

This Saturday, Cardey will be driving Don Blair’s #12 car at Victorville. He has won two of the last three races on the High Desert. He was running second in the main event when he blew a water hose and finished seventh at the last race on July 24th. Spectator gates will open at 4:30 PM on Saturday and the first race will be at 6:00. Victorville Auto Speedway is located on the San Bernardino County Fairgrounds in the city of Victorville.

On August 28th, the 34-year-old driver will be trying to set a USAC/CRA track record at Perris Auto Speedway. He has won the last four USAC/CRA races in a row at The PAS and that has him tied with the record previously set by Tony Jones (the all time 410 Sprint Car track record is six and was set by Cory Kruseman in the SCRA days). Cardey will be driving his own red #59 car at The PAS.

On Labor Day weekend at the Vermeil Classic at Calistoga, Cardey will be wheeling Glenn Crossno’s famous #38 Viper Chassis/iTi Powered car from iTi Performance. That is a familiar ride for Cardey and he scored five wins in it in his years racing for Crossno.

Last Saturday afternoon, Cardey met with fans at the Dirty Danita and the Dirt Track Diva’s Calistoga Fundraiser Bikini Car Wash at the famous Racer’s Pub in Riverside. The event was a success and helped raise much needed funds for the September trip to Calistoga.

This past Tuesday, Cardey was a live in studio guest on Q103.3 FM (Temecula Valley’s Classis Rock) to promote the August 28th USAC/CRA race at Perris Auto Speedway.
