John Silva Wins Carquest Western Xtreme Dirtcar Opener

BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (March 27, 2004) -- Defending Series champion John Silva took the lead with eight laps remaining and held on to win the Carquest Western Xtreme DirtCar Series season opener at Bakersfield Speedway.

Goodyear is the exclusive tire supplier for Xtreme racing. The race was the first for the series as a part of the Xtreme organization.

The Bakersfield venue is a high-banked 1/3-mile clay oval.

Silva had to work for the win. He did not lead the race until slipping by Bobby Hogge IV on the 32nd lap of the 40-lap event. After that, Silva had to hold off the charge of Devin Crockett to take the win.

Crockett finished second, Eric Jaconsen was third, Phil Barrow took fourth and Greg Walters came in fifth.
