WILD WEEKEND ON TAP AT "The PAS"

FRIDAY, AUGUST 16: STOCKS, MODIFIEDS, DWARF CAR & WINGED MINI-SPRINTS

SATURDAY, AUGUST 17: 800-HORSEPOWER (35+ OF THEM) SPRINT CARS

PERRIS, Calif.-It's not for nothing that the nickname "The 4-Ring Circus" has stuck with Perris Auto Speedway's regular card of Winged Mini-Sprints, Stocks, Modifieds, and Dwarf Cars. Four classes of racing cars, two race tracks (both the 1/2 and 1/4-Miles) and over 100 entries (there were 106 at the last race on July 27) make for a "Barnum & Bailey" atmosphere at "The PAS". "It gets really festive when we have all four classes racing on one night here at Perris, the crowd seems to enjoy the variety and the racers enjoy putting on a show for the fans," said track VP, Ken Kazarian. "Each type of vehicle has its own unique way of putting in a fast lap." The Mini-Sprints with their tall "Outlaw"-like wings just run wide open all the way around the track...it's a pure speed show. The I.M.C.A. Modifieds on the half mile are just fast and very smooth," he went on, "and the Limited Street Stocks are almost as fast but not quite as tidy, they tend to get a little crossed-up (sideways) just about anywhere on the track." "And...the Dwarf Cars are as quick as they are cute. These cars are almost overpowered for their light weight and short wheelbase length, let's just mark down the Dwarf racers as real competitive." All four classes will be racing on one night (Friday, August 16) with spectator gates opening up at 5:00 P.M., practice beginning at 5:30 P.M., and racing getting under way at 7:00 P.M.

TWO WORDS: "SPRINT CARS!" 800 Horsepower Each!

PERRIS, Calif.-About all it takes to get people all stirred up and headed for Perris Auto Speedway on a saturday night are two words: SPRINT CARS! And that's exactly what's happening on Saturday night next at "The PAS". The mid-season battle has been well and truly joined with racers fighting it out in every heat for every position as if they were leading the last lap of the main event. "`Competitive' is not a strong enough word for what's happening here at Perris when the S.C.R.A. Sprint Cars take to the track," says Competition Director Bubby Jones, "It's outright war when these guys get to racing. We're talking 800+ brutal horsepower, tires the width barrels and single seater chassis that weigh less than 1500 pounds with driver and all." Combine that kind of awesome equiptment and super-competitive spirits with a fast, tacky clay track and you are in for a night of high speed drama on the 1/2 mile. And the 9000+ comfortable, close-in, seats at Perris Auto Speedway make watching at "The PAS" a real pleasure. Saturday night's Sprint Car Show will see the spectator gates opening at 5:00 PM, practice and hot laps between 6:00 and 6:30 PM and the first heat race firing off at 7:30 PM. The night's racing will be all in the record books by 10:30 when the crossover gates to the infield pits will be opened up for fans to join the racers and thier crews in the pit area for a post-race autograph and photo session...everyone's invited! 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. (For group rates, give Lola a call at (909)943-4006.)
