Lonnie Wheatley, TULSA, Okla. (August 15, 2011) –
After a summer
break of nearly two months, the ASCS Southern California Region
returns to action by taking to the Giant Chevrolet Kings
Speedway in Hanford, CA, this Saturday night.
Saturday’s card atop the 3/8-mile Kings clay oval marks the
first ASCS SoCal event since Tommy Tarlton picked off his third
series win of the year on June 25.
With three wins in five tries, Tarlton holds a 112-point edge in
ASCS SoCal points over Cory Eliason, with Steven Kent, Albert
Pombo and Ronnie Day rounding out the current top five.
After Tarlton topped the initial two events of the year, Eliason
cracked ASCS SoCal victory lane at Santa Maria in May before Bud
Kaeding scored at Kings two weeks later.
Giant Chevrolet Kings Speedway is located in Hanford, CA, south
of SR 198 on 10th Avenue to the Fairgrounds.
