Aptos, CA)- With Mother Nature washing out the scheduled season opener for the Wingless Sprint Car Series presented by Joey Hunt Magnetos, on two separate occasions so far, the series will officially kick the 2016 season off Saturday night at the Stockton Dirt Track as they share the track with the King of the West 410ci Sprint Car Series.
Embarking on it’s second season under the leadership of the Prentice Motorsports Group, the Wingless Series presented by Joe Hunt Magnetos will again tour over the great state of California racing along side either the King of the West Series or the Civil Series in nearly every event in the 2016 season.
In 2015 the series made three appearances at the ultra fast Stockton Dirt Track and Colton Slack was victorious in two of the events while perennial series favorite, Terry Schank Jr, also picked up a win during the summer months.
2016 will mark the series’ seventh season in the Golden State and they can be seen in action from March through November at four of California’s marquee venues.
On the heels of a very competitive 2015 season that saw Gary Nelson, Jr score his first series championship, and the series have five different feature event winners, the 2016 season is shaping up to be another exciting one on the non-wing landscape as the series will look for it’s fourth ever series champion.
In non wing action in 2016 thus far in the Nor Cal region some stand out drivers have been Terry Schank, Klint Simpson, and Shayna Sylvia, as all drivers have found victory lane at various tracks. Other drivers that have been strong thus far and should be in attendance include Joe Stornetta, Timmy Sherman, Jr, Cody Fendley, Ryon Silverling, Angelique Bell, and many more of the top drivers in the division.
Premium upper deck Saturday night will cost $25, with lower deck tickets $20. Kids 10 & under are free in the lower deck bleachers. Tickets can be acquired by contacting 916-370-9417.
