By Gary Thomas
Stockton, CA – Jan. 21, 2016 – If you are a fan of Winged Sprint Car racing the place to be on Friday & Saturday March 18 & 19 is without a doubt the Stockton Dirt Track for the third annual FVP Western Spring Shootout.
Not only will the World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series be on hand for the weekend, but Winged 360 Sprint Cars have also been added to the card each night. The Winged 360’s will run under no sanction, but will follow PMG 360 (Civil War/ Taco Bravo) rules. Each night will pay $3,000-to-win and if a driver ends up winning both nights there is an extra $2,000 double down bonus up for grabs.
The expansion to have both 410’s & 360’s during the weekend continues the trend of the Stockton Dirt Track attempting to form marquee events each season.
“We’re excited to have the Winged 360 Sprints compete alongside the World of Outlaws on March 18 & 19 at the Stockton Dirt Track,” said promoter Tony Noceti. “It really is a Sprint Car lover’s dream weekend and it gets even better when you add in the special show at Delta Speedway on Thursday night. We want to create major events like this and get as many campers to the fairgrounds as we can. Going to the races is so much more than just watching cars go around the track. It’s about friendships, camaraderie, enjoying a cold or hot beverage and having a good time. Our focus here is to continue improving the fan experience and we’re trying to do as much as possible to give everyone the most bang for their buck as we can.”
Last year’s World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series event featured two thrilling nights of racing, with the opener seeing eventual Outlaw champion Donny Schatz come out on top of a photo finish with Shane Stewart. The finale was then captured by California favorite Rico Abreu, who battled his way past Terry McCarl for the popular win.
