Plenty of Action This Week at a Pair of Speedways on Both Coasts

CV Products —  March 21, 2013 | Category: Trackside Program | Comment

CV-Products-Trackside-VegasThe NASCAR-sanctioned Myrtle Beach 400 highlights this weekend’s events, a race that was postponed way back in November of last year. It’s been rescheduled for this Friday and we can pretty much guarantee it was worth the wait. Long known as the place to get a first look-see at future NASCAR champions, Myrtle Beach Speedway is where the biggest stars cut their teeth. We’re talking about four generations of Petty boys and three generations of Earnhardts for starters. This is a double-header weekend at this recently purchased and newly renovated racetrack in South Carolina.

Meanwhile, in Southern California — way over there on the left coast — you can find our CV Products tractor-trailer at a pair of NASCAR events within the noisy confines of the Auto Club Speedway in Fontana. We’ll be supplying parts and products to race teams at all four events on both coasts. Here’s our weekend schedule:

Myrtle-Beach-400-Logo20th Annual Myrtle Beach 400

This two-day event includes South East Limited Late Models racing 100 laps, followed by the 250-lap NASCAR Late Model race on Friday afternoon. The race features a $10,000 prize for the winner among a field of 40-plus cars, and includes some of the best late model drivers in the nation.

Saturday will be the second big day for the two divisions, plus two other support classes. NASCAR Late Model racecars put in 150 laps; Southeast Limited drives do 100 laps; the Southeast Challenger is a 50-lap race; and, the Mini Mayhem is a 100-lap race. In all, the Saturday schedule calls 400 laps of racing!

Royal Purple 300

Royal-Purple-300-LogoThis race marks the fifth on the NASCAR Nationwide Series for 2013, an event that saw Joey Logano lead the pack for 92 laps before collecting the checkered last year. Logano won’t be here this weekend, but Kyle Busch will. Busch holds the record for most Nationwide wins at Auto Club Speedway with five — all taking place within the last seven races at the Fontana venue.

Auto-Club-400-LogoAuto Club 400

Las Vegas is giving Jimmie Johnson 6-1 odds to win the Auto Club 400, what with him living in nearby El Cajon, Calif., and holding the track record with five wins. But then there’s Kasey Kahne, coming off his win in last week’s Food City 500 at Bristol. Kahne, teammate Kyle Bush and Matt Kenseth share the 7-1 odds to win this NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Race on Sunday.
