STOCKTON, CALIFORNIA (April 15, 2019) – The second night of championship competition at Delta Speedway presented by Financial Center Credit Union hits the track on Saturday night. Close racing across all four regular divisions – Super 600, Non Wing, Restricted, and Jr. Sprints – is expected to continue after a hotly contested opening night.
Drivers compete on a 1/7th mile dirt oval located at the San Joaquin County Fairgrounds in Stockton.
Non Wing has maintained its place as the largest division at the speedway with an average field of 33 so far in two events. Both main events have been won by the brand-new Ten-J Chassis, with veteran drivers Mitchel Moles and Brandon Carey behind the wheel. 2018 champion Tj Smith with his new Driven chassis and 2018 runner-up Caden Sarale have been locked out of victory lane thus far. Former champion Dan Mognaga has a pair of top-fives so far in the $500 to win, 30 lap features.
Super 600 saw a bit of a redemption story in the points opener when 2018 championship runner-up Raio Salmon scored the victory. Former track champion Jake Andreotti finished second ahead of 2012 Turkey Bowl winner Brad Hannum. No driver has finished in the top-five in both races, showing the competitiveness of the class. Super 600 also competes for $500 to win for 30 laps.
Logan Trevino has had a brilliant start to his 2019 Restricted campaign with a victory and a second place finish. His victory came ahead of Jeffrey Pahule, Jr. on the first points race while his runner-up was behind Jade Avedisian in the non-points special in March. Both Pahule and Avedisian are poised to compete for victories all season long. Reilee Phillips is entering his first full season of Restricted and posted a career best third on opening night as well. The young drivers in Restricted will compete for 25 laps for a minimum of $300 to win.
Jr. Sprints has attracted a surging turnout with 17 cars for their points opener. Lucas Mauldin earned a well-deserved first career victory over Colton Key. Kyle Fernandez has been third in both events this year. The Jr. Sprints will race for 20 laps and a guaranteed $200 to win on Saturday.
Pit gates open at noon with the drivers meeting set for 4:30 p.m. Hot laps begin shortly after with qualifying and racing to follow.
