PERRIS, Calif. – After a successful 20th anniversary season opener for sprint cars at Perris Auto Speedway last Saturday night, the Riverside County clay oval will kick off the 20th anniversary PASSCAR season this Saturday, March 14.
Saturday’s show will feature Super Stocks, Street Stocks, American Factory Stocks and the highly anticipated return of the IMCA Xtreme Motor Sports Modifieds.
Saturday’s race will be the first IMCA sanctioned Modified race at The PAS since 2005. Since 2007, the track started sanctioning the class under the PASSCAR banner. At the urging of racers, sanctioning for the division is reverting back to IMCA in 2015.
The track has had an increase in the size of the fields for the Modifieds the past few years and going back to IMCA should draw even more cars. Drivers competing in the division will earn points not only for the PAS IMCA Modified track championship, but also toward IMCA Speedway Motors Weekly Racing national, regional and Allstar Performance State point standings.
The eight races at The PAS will all be part of the Larry Shaw Western Region.
“We are really excited to welcome IMCA back to The PAS,” promoter Don Kazarian said, “especially in its centennial season. A lot of drivers asked us to go back to IMCA. This will allow cars from other tracks to come race with our regulars as they try to earn state, regional and national points. It will also allow our drivers to venture to other tracks as the rules are now the same. For the past few years our street stock class has usually been the largest on race nights. The modified class has been getting bigger the past couple seasons and it may end up being the largest this year. It is going to be very exciting.”
2014 champions Blaine Whitson (super stocks), Eddie Gurwell (street stocks) and Dalton Everhart (Modifieds) are all expected to be in action on Saturday.
Spectator gates will open at 5 p.m. Saturday and racing will begin at 7 p.m. Adult tickets are $15. For active military members with proper ID, teens 13-18 with their school ID and kids ages 6-12, admission is $5. Children five and under will be admitted free.
Advance tickets for all events at The PAS, with the exception of the World of Outlaws, are available 24 hours a day by calling 1 800-595-4849 or online.
