For Immediate Release

WORLD OF OUTLAWS SPRINT CARS HEADED TO PERRIS AUTO SPEEDWAY APRIL 1ST!

(Perris, CA, March 9, 2017) The World’s fastest dirt track sprint cars, the legendary World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series, will be making its only 2017 appearance in Southern California at the famous Perris Auto Speedway on Saturday, April 1st, for the annual “SoCal Showdown.” Joining the famous World of Outlaws stars will be the Amsoil USAC/CRA Sprint Cars and The PAS Senior & Young Gun Sprints. Spectator gates will open at 4:00 PM and the first race will take the green flag at 7:00.

The April 1st appearance will be the 18th ever for the World of Outlaws at the track locals affectionately refer to as “The PAS.” Over the years, nine different drivers have posted WoO wins at the famous Riverside County clay oval. Oolitic, Indiana’s Mark Kinser won the first five WoO races at The PAS from 1996 through 1998. However, in the subsequent 12-races since, eight different winners have graced the top step of podium. The most recent winner is Darryn Pittman. The Owasso, Oklahoma star, who drives a car owned by NASCAR driver Kasey Kahne and former California Lieutenant Governor Mike Curb, has captured two of the last five WoO main events at The PAS. The 38-year-old’s three wins rank him second on the all-time PAS/WoO win list behind Kinser.

Fargo, North Dakota’s Donnie Schatz, who drives for Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing, was the leader in WoO points as the series journeyed west for a month in early March to contest races in Nevada, California and Arizona. The 39-year-old won his eighth World of Outlaws championship in 2016. Despite his eight titles and 232-lifetime WoO wins, Schatz has never won the main event at Perris. Through the first four races of the 2017 campaign, Schatz has three wins. Eunice, Louisiana’s Jason Johnson – aka “The Ragin’ Cajun’” – was the only other winner in 2017 as the series headed west.

In addition to Pittman, Schatz and Johnson, others who will be competing on April 1st include two-time Perris winner Joey Saldana of Brownsburg, Indiana, Grass Valley, California’s Brad Sweet, David Gravel of Watertown, Connecticut, 2007 PAS winner Ian Madsen from Sydney, Australia, Jason Sides of Bartlett, Tennessee, Wooster, Ohio’s Sheldon Haudenschild and 2015 PAS winner Paul McMahon of Elk Grove, California.

As an added treat for the fans, the west coast’s premiere traditional (non-wing) sprint car series, the USAC/CRA Sprint Cars, will also be competing on the night. The USAC/CRA field will be headed by five-time series champions “The Demon” Damion Gardner of Concord, California and local racer Mike Spencer of Temecula. Those two veterans will have their hands full with a bevy of young stars including Richard Vander Weerd of Visalia, who led all 30-laps at the season opening main on March 4th, Austin Williams of Yorba Linda, Brody Roa of Garden Grove and Jake Swanson of Anaheim.

The PAS Young Gun Sprints, for drivers 14-25-years-old with no prior sprint car experience, and Senior Sprints for driver 40 and over, will complete the exciting quadruple-header.

Fans who purchase reserved seat tickets in advance to the “SoCal Showdown” will receive a free “World of Outlaws Fan Pit Pass.” The fan pit pass will allow the spectators to get up close to the WoO’s to take photos, meet the drivers, get autographs and purchase merchandise straight from their favorite teams.
