</pre> EL CAJON, CA. (05/19/01). It will be another evening with lots of different types of stock cars in action this Saturday night at Cajon Speedway. The NASCAR Weekly Racing Series event includes the late model sportsman, the Grand American modifieds, bomber stocks, legends, and those crazy train racers.

Race time will be 6:45 P.M. Qualifying runs will start at 5:15. Practice runs will commence at 4:00.

The late model sportsman class is Cajon's premier division. Those sleek machines which resemble current model Chevrolet Monte Carlos for the most part will run a 40-lap main event.

The Grand American modifieds are open wheeled machines. Though the body styles are called Chevrolet or Ford, it would be hard for the casual observer to name the brand of any car in the modified class. The modifieds turn lap times around Cajon's 3/8 mile paved oval similar to the late models. They will have a 25-lap feature.

Along with the pony stocks, the bomber class is one of Cajon's entry-level classes. Most of the bombers are 1970 though 1980 Chevrolets or Fords. Only minimal modifications can be made to get this class of car ready for competition. The bombers will host a 20-lap feature Saturday night.

The legend cars are shrunk down versions of classic 1930's American cars. A Yamaha motorcycle engine is under the hood. Still the cars have plenty of pep and are capable of averaging over 70 mph around Cajon's oval.

The late model sportsman and Grand American modifieds turn laps in the low-80 mph range while the bombers average mid to high 60 mph speeds.

This weekend will mark the first appearance of the season for the legend cars. Their first event was scheduled for April 21, but was washed out. This will be race number four for the sportsman and the bombers and the second event for the modifieds. Mike Mendenhall continues to pace the sportsman point standings. Last Saturday the Santee resident romped to his second triumph in three races.
