Excitement Builds All Weekend For Infineon Show-Down

SONOMA, CA (April 30, 2006) - As always, Infineon Raceway provides some of the best racing that the American Stockcar Challenge experiences during the year. Some of the tightest, most exciting races always happen on this track. This is why it is a favorite racetrack for many of the world's biggest race groups. This weekend was no disappointment in that regard for most of the ASC competitors. Nineteen ASC competitors and three other stockcars joined in the competition, along with five Pro Trucks that made the track from Southern California.

This is an exciting, fast, and challenging track change that ASC has not used in the past.

The test day, normally on Friday, had to be on Thursday this time due to a conflict with an Infineon Corporate Day event. Many of the competitors made it up for the Thursday test, leaving their family and work even longer than normal. The majority of the test day was on the full track configuration, however, Infineon officials kindly allowed the ASC competitors two 45 minute session on the Chute for final tuning. As always, the test day competitors get a chance to fine- tune their cars for the event.

On Saturday morning, practice was held in conjunction with the CMC, FFR, and AI race groups, putting more than 60 cars on the track at wildly various speeds...
