KAEDING DOMINATES SCRA AT WATSONVILLE SPRINTERS

April 21, 1995

These are the results of SCRA's sixth scheduled event for 1995, run at Watsonville Speedway, at Watsonville (CA) Fairgrounds. Thirty-seven (37) cars qualified for tonight's event. There was only one car that got upside-down during the night's racing - that of Tim Green. Green was slow in getting out of the car, but seemed to be okay.

The race track started out tacky, but by the end of the main event, it was a "dry/slickie". The racers put on a good show for the 2000+ fans in the stands, in spite of the dusty conditions.

Once again, the new Passing Masters Dash format definitely benefited the slower qualifiers as Brent Kaeding won both the Passing Masters Dash and the Main Event. Kaeding qualified 18th quick. The main event and Passing Masters Dash runner-up, Rip Williams, qualified 19th quick. The Passing Masters Dash format has definitely benefited the slower qualifiers, making it an apparent disadvantage to turn a quick time.

Following Kaeding and Williams to Steve Vodden's checked flag was Cory Krusema n, Mike Kirby and Troy Cline. Rounding out the top ten was Darryl Hannestad, Steve Ostling, Jason Statler, Eric Wilkins, and Kevin Pylant.

This was SCRA's first visit to Watsonville Speedway. Tomorrow night, the SCRA sprinters will make an appearance at San Jose Fairgrounds Speedway.
