5 divisions at
Marysville CA -
May 28, 2014... Paul and Kathy Hawes’
Marysville Raceway Park will host another rip-roaring
5 division show this Saturday night. It will be
“Veteran’s Appreciation Night” at the raceway. The MRP
Wingless Warrior Sprint Cars will headline the
program. For stock car fans the MRP Super Stocks,
Hobby Stocks and MRP Mini Stocks will compete in some
more fender bending championship point racing
competition. The Pro 4 Sprint Cars will also be on the
Veteran Tim Sherman Jr. remains
unstoppable in the MRP Wingless Warrior class so far.
Citrus Heights’ Sherman has won every race except
opening night when a flat tire grabbed him…while
leading! Sherman remains very fast and the one to
beat. Sherman however was bitten hard by that flat
tire and is only 5 points ahead of 2012 champion Brett
Youngman of Grass Valley.
Local lady racer
Misty Castleberry remains a close 3rd in the standings
as Marysville’s Josh Vieira and Wheatland’s Johnny
Burns round out the top five. The Wingless Warriors
have no aerodynamic devices or wings to glue the power
of their 360 cubic inch power plants to the racing
surface. In this division, you slide it into the
corners at 100 mph and hope it sticks. Some of MRP’s
most thrilling and outrageous moments have happened
during MRP Wingless Sprint Car events. Car control is
always on the ragged edge in this division.
Marysville's Cort and Rick Dozier have been among the
fastest in the MRP Super Stock ranks with Rick getting
his first-ever win last time out. Yuba City's Hall
Brothers, Corey and Brent, had a rough time last time
the Supers were at the track and look to change that
Saturday. There is only a 3 point spread amongst the
first three drivers in the division as former champion
Phillip Shelby of Yuba City holds a 1 point edge over
Rick Dozier. Corey Hall is third, only 3 points out.
The MRP Mini Stocks will be led by championship
point leader Jimmy Ford of Yuba City over opening
night winner James Foster of Linda. Yuba City’s Kyle
Davey finally visited victory lane last time out. The
Davey-Ford-Foster trio has been exciting to watch.
2013 champion Shaun Merritt of Marysville will be back
after mechanical gremlins parked him during the last
The MRP Hobby Stocks will be offered on
Saturday with the Eddie Hammett at the top of the
standings. Yuba City’s Jeremy and Miranda Hammons will
try to keep the point leader in check. A very close
side by side finish last time out has kept railbirds
buzzing, and waiting, for this one.
champion in the Pro 4 division, Misty Castleberry will
look for victory again Saturday night. In this class
it’s all pretty simple; she has won every feature
event in the class this season and by doing so, is
well seeded on top of the point standings.
