(Riverside, CA, March 9, 2011) Riverside, California racing star “Dynamite” David Cardey will begin his eighth season of driving 410 Sprint Cars when the USAC/CRA Series takes the 2011 green flag at the Sokola Shootout at Perris Auto Speedway this Saturday, March 12th. Spectator gates will open at 5:00 PM and the first race will be at 7:00.

Cardey, 35, finished second in the USAC/CRA Series to Mike Spencer in 2009. Last year Cardey curtailed his out of town travels and confined most of his racing to Perris. He finished 11th overall in series points with four main event wins. Those four wins ranked him third overall on the victory list. His four wins at the Riverside County clay oval came all in row from May 29th through July 31st and included the Annual Salute to Indy and the Firecracker 30. He also won a couple open competition races at Victorville.

To go with his four USAC/CRA victories in 2011, Cardey had five top five finishes and eight top tens. He also nabbed five heat race wins which tied him for third overall and he led 53 laps of main event action. Only five drivers led more laps.

Cardey will once again be wheeling an iTi Performance Viper chassis in 2011 with a brand new Mopar Engine. As this piece went to press, his 2011 schedule will be much the same as 2010. Plans now call for him to race all of the Perris and Victorville races. He does however hope to secure more sponsorship in an effort to make more of the out of town races.

David would like to thank the following sponsors who are making his 2011 season possible: Circle Track Performance, Victory Race Cars, Picks Racing Engines, Champion Racing Lubricants, WIX Filters, Spin Tech Mufflers, DWT Wheels, Jim Giardina, Glenn Crossno, Don Flanders, George Otten and Scott Daloisio Sports.
