Special Event Planned For Central Valley Mini Stocks At Lemoore Raceway On Sunday
Lemoore, CA... Sunday will be a special occasion for the Central Valley Mini Stocks at Lemoore Raceway. Not only is it the fifth round of their championship season, but there will be a true legend on hand. West Coast Stock Car Hall of Famer Kenny Takeuchi will be there to meet the fans.
Kenny announced Super Modified races at several venues throughout California. He was known as one of the best announcers in the sport. He took great pride in doing his research on the racers so that he could let the fans know some interesting facts and statistics about each driver they were watching. He even wrote the articles that were printed in various publications.
These days, Kenny still announces the occasional race for the Legends Of Kearney Bowl Super Modifieds. Several of those Vintage Super Modified cars will be on display for the fans to see on Sunday afternoon. Many of these cars have been restored and were raced years ago. The owners take great pride in keeping these cars in pristine condition.
When it comes to the racing action, it's the Baronian brothers leading the championship standings. With multiple victories, Greg Baronian holds a 34 point advantage over Rod Baronian. Rod held off Greg to win the season opener. The margin is much closer between second and third as Dan Myrick trails Rod by just eight points. Myrick has been slowly getting his car dialed in and hopes to get his first feature win of the season on Sunday. He may need that with Ryan Doglione just five points behind him in fourth. Dan's father, reigning champion Danny Myrick, is only 10 points out of third.
The Mini Stocks will run a program that calls for qualifying on the clock, followed by a Trophy Dash, heat races, Semi Main (if needed) and Main Event. Other drivers anticipated for Sunday include Jeff Durant, Chris Goldsmith, Ben Davis, Randy Brown Jr. and Scott Glenn. Word is there will be some visitors coming from out of town as well.
If that's not enough, there will be special 50/50 drawings for various raffle prizes throughout the afternoon. The event is sponsored by John Miller Hay Co and Four Banger Garage. For further information, go to http://www.centralvalleyministocks.com, or check out the group's another site page.
