Chico’s Brad Bumgarner picked up his first win in over four years by dominating the 25-lap winged sprint car main event last Saturday night.
Bumgarner’s family has owned a sprint car for 50 consecutive years, and it was a rocking victory lane celebration to say the least. Grass Valley’s Billy Wallace is still the driver to beat in the championship. Wallace holds a 60-point edge over “Hot Sauce” Kevin Lovell.
The Crate Sprints look to get back onto the track this Saturday night.
It has been awhile since these eager drivers have raced on the famous Marysville Raceway surface.
This group is led by Brett Youngman, two-time champ, the Ballentine’s and David Simms, who just won a main event at the Silver Dollar Speedway in Chico.
The Limited Late Models are geared to fight it out on the track this week. Jay Norton, Rod Oliver, Dan Brown Jr., and George Magenheimer are all capable of winning on any given Saturday night.
In hobby stocks, Jacob Johnson holds a 10-point lead over Jesse Roekel. Chris Roekel sits third.
Devin Koranda rounds out the top five. Last week, a staggering 34 hobby stocks filled the pit area.
