5 divisions at MRP Saturday!.
Marysville CA -
April 24, 2014... Paul and Kathy Hawes’
Marysville Raceway Park will host a rip-roaring 5
division show this Saturday night. The MRP Wingless
Warrior Sprint Cars will headline the program in their
third appearance of the season. For stock car fans the
MRP Super Stocks, Hobby Stocks and MRP Mini Stocks
will compete in some fender bending championship point
racing competition. The Pro 4 Sprint Cars will also be
on the card.
Veteran Tim Sherman Jr. has been
unstoppable in the MRP Wingless Warrior class; when
the car doesn’t break. Citrus Heights’ Sherman has won
one and led one in the first two outings for the
class. A late race flat tire kept him out of victory
lane on opening night. But, Sherman remains very fast
and the one to beat.
Local lady racer Misty
Castleberry is just 2 points out of the championship
lead. Wheatland’s Johnny Burns and Marysville’s
brightest prospect Josh Vieira will be in the mix.
Vieira flipped on opening night, but has been in the
hunt in each event. The Wingless Warriors have no
aerodynamic wings to stick their 600 horsepower cars
to the ground. The signature of the Wingless Warriors
is breathtaking 100 mph slides where driver control is
Yuba City’s Corey Hall is on an
enormous roll and will take the MRP Super Stock point
lead into Saturday’s show. He has won the last two
feature events; last week from tenth starting position
in a noteworthy drive. Yuba City’s Phillip Shelby blew
his motor sky-high last week but still remains 2nd in
the point standings after three events. Marysville's
Cort and rick dozier will also field team cars.
Journeyman racer and former champion, Cort Dozier, has
had a terrible start to the season while brother Rick
has been at the front in every race.
Mini Stocks will be led by championship point leader
Jimmy Ford of Yuba City over opening night winner
James Foster of Linda. Ford had a spectacular battle
with Yuba City ’s Kyle Davey to the checkers last
week. Davey, who has been among the fastest in the
class cannot seem to get a break and still has not
visited victory lane. The Davey-Ford-Foster trio has
been exciting to watch. But, don’t count out Misty
Castleberry who will be doing triple duty Saturday.
Castleberry will run in this class as well.
MRP Hobby Stocks will be offered on Saturday with the
Hammett brothers, Eddie and Steve at the top of the
standings, Knights Landing’s Aaron Taylor and Yuba
City ’s Jeremy and Miranda Hammons will try to knock
the brothers off the perch.
champion in the Pro 4 division, Misty Castleberry will
look for victory again Saturday night. She has won
every feature event in the class this season and by
doing so, is well seeded atop the point standings.
