Open Comp. and Outlaw Sprints, Stock Cars & Mighty USAC Midgets to be Featured Oct.-Nov.

Perris, Calif.-A revised schedule for the remainder of the competition year at Perris Auto Speedway has been announced by Oval Entertainment's Vice President Ken Kazarian. "We've lost a few (smaller events) that were on the original '96 schedule, but we've added some tremendously exciting major events to our first year portfolio," said Kazarian. The star-studded schedule of national-caliber racing events will kick off in mid-October and run right through closing night of the regular season on Thursday, November 28. October 18 & 19 will see the running of the inaugural "Oval Nationals(c)" an open competition event for Sprint Cars that boasts what must be the shortest set of rules ever! To wit: "No wings, no carbon fiber, no titanium, 100% Methanol fuel, and a maximum of 410 cubic inches. "Those rules are always followed by the admonition "Bring Your Spurs!" to anyone who is planning on competing. On the "numbers" side the $10,000 (of over $40,000 in total prize moneys) that's up for taking first place in the 40-lap A-Main should be some indication of the level of competition expected and fierce! November 1 and 2 of 1996 will surely be remembered as the days that the World of Outlaws took over "The PAS." These savage drivers will slam into town with their wild paint jobs and incredible wings and lay absolute siege to the track records as well as to the total attention of the expected capacity crowds. "On stage" in the L.A./San Diego area for the first time in nearly seven years, legendary Outlaw open-wheel chauffeur's names like Kinser, Blaney, Swindell, Haudenschild, Yeley, Hillenburg, and Herrera will all have faces (albeit on "Wanted" posters) to put with them at "The PAS" come the first of November. The inaugural PAS Stock Car Classic should be just that; a Classic! This brand new one-day event will celebrate the Limited Street Stock machines and the people who build, maintain and drive them (which oft-times is the same person!). On Saturday night, November 16 Perris Auto Speedway will honor the "small guy" in racing; the grass-roots heart and soul of short track racing. These are the next Earnhardts, Gurneys, Hearns' and St. James.' These are the people who work at one job very hard so that they can work on their race cars even harder. This event will give these drivers a taste of the big time with qualifying, heat races and a 40-lap finale which will make many new demands on driving style, car set-up and race strategy. Included in the add-ons for Perris' 1996 season is one of the most prestigious oval track races in the country, the traditionai USAC Turkey Night Grand Prix. "November 28th will be the 56th running of Turkey Night, and we are both excited and honored to be hosting this distinguished event right here at Perris. It will be our final event of our inaugural year and our first 100-lapper. We're all fans at heart; most of us at the track have rarely if ever missed a Turkey Night, and now, we're going to be an integral part of this historic race," remarked Kazarian. Perris Auto Speedway is located in the Lake Perris Fairgrounds, two miles East of Interstate Highway 215, just off the Ramona Expressway. Reserved seats, "Season Tickets", and special discount group rate ticket packages are now available for patrons of "The PAS", where there are always plenty of great seats for EVERY event.
