Thunderbowl Raceway

TULARE, Calif. – March 12, 2012 – Joey Saldana has claimed three of the past five World of Outlaws features at the high-banked Thunderbowl Raceway, where the World of Outlaws compete on Friday and Saturday.

Saldana claimed the victory at Perris Auto Speedway in Perris, Calif. at the NAPA Know How SoCal Showdown on Saturday and Kaeding was victorious on Thursday at The Dirt Track at Las Vegas Motor Speedway in Las Vegas.
