ORANGE SHOW SPEEDWAY
(San Bernardino, CA)
The Lucas Oil Modifieds will be the star attraction for the final Special Event of the season at the ASA Member Track adjacent to the National Orange Show, but the JAM Sportswear Late Models may provide the fireworks. Two weeks ago, for example, there were on-track incidents that triggered confrontations in the pits and had long-time racers and observers talking about the "good old days," when it sometimes took longer to stop the fights than it had to run the race. What no one knows for sure, though, is whether the recent turmoil has been due to the heat of the championship race or the heat, period, and whether it will continue Saturday night when the Late Models 50-lap main event will bring the busy schedule to a close. It will start with qualifying at about 5:15 p.m. and a "B" main that will determine the final qualifiers for the Lucas Oil Modifieds main event, the K&N Filters Topless 100. Trophy Dashes are scheduled to get under way at 7 p.m. and will be followed by 35-lap races for Stock Cars USA, Pick-A-Part Street Stocks and Pro 4s, the Modifieds feature and the JAM Sportswear Late Model contest. Spectator gates will open at 4 p.m. General admission tickets for this Special Event are priced at $15, but law enforcement personnel with valid identification will be admitted for $7. Admission is $13 for seniors (60 and older), students 11 to 18 and military personnel with valid identification and $65 for a Family pack, which includes admission for four plus a hot dog and small soft drink for each person. Children 10 and under are free. Parking is $5, with entry through Gate 4 off Mill Street.
