CV Products Trackside Goes Bicoastal with Stops in California, and South Carolina and Virginia

CV Products —  May 9, 2013 | Category: Trackside Program | Comment

darlington_c_thumbDarlington Raceway in northeastern South Carolina has a race history dating back to 1950, and when it comes to the biggest and baddest stock car racing series on the planet, this weekend’s races will be the 110th such NASCAR event on this 1.366-mile track. Seven hundred NASCAR racers have competed here — 423 of them more than once. And for you trivia aficionados, you should know that more Chevrolets have crossed the finish line first than Fords (40 to 28).

Now that you’re armed with all this mental minutia, we here at CV Products hope to see you in South Carolina Friday and Saturday. Our staff will be on hand with tractor-trailer loads of our products available for sale in the pits for racers and spectators with Hot Passes alike.

Here’s how this week’s CV Products Trackside Program is lining up:

American Le Mans Monterey

American_LeMans_Monterey_LogoWith the win at Long Beach in the No. 55 Z4 GTE, Bill Auberlen and Maxime Martin stand in a tie atop the Driver points as teams ready for the four-hour American Le Mans Series at Laguna Seca Raceway in Monterey, California, this Saturday. And while Long Beach and Laguna Seca each have 11 turns and are only a quarter-mile difference in length, Long Beach featured a makeshift track on city streets around a harbor, while Laguna Seca Raceway is a ribbon of road threading through rolling hills.

PASS 150

There have been four different winners for each of the first four races in the 2013 Pro All Stars Series, and speaking of inconsistency, not one single driver who has led the most laps in each of those events has gone on to capture the checkered flag. You might expect to see Jay Fogleman, Kyle Grissom, and Brandon Ward in the mix for the championship, but upstarts Brandon Lynn and Spencer Davis have fared well early in the season. So it’s pretty much anybody’s ball game this Saturday in Virginia.
