So Cal Oval Karters ‘Race for the Rack’ Saturday at Wheel2Wheel Raceway

The So Cal Oval Karters will contest their next to last race of the 2015 campaign when they journey to John Aden’s Wheel2Wheel Raceway for the third annual “Race for the Rack” this Saturday night, October 10th.   The race helps raise awareness and money for the fight against breast cancer.  The SCOK will be joined by the Speedway Sprints, DirtKarts and Extreme Sidecars.  Gates will open at 3:00 PM with racing at 6:00.

The top SCOK winner at Wheel2Wheel Raceway thus far this year has been Matt Martis.  The Bonita based racer, who leads all of SCOK with seven wins this year, has won three of the four Senior 4 Cycle main events staged W2W.  Other drivers with more than one on the longtime 1/8 of a mile High Desert oval in 2015 include KT 100 point leader Troy Patton of Cherry Valley, La Verne’s Jason Morheiser in the F200’s and Camarillo’s Cody Nigh in the Opens.  Each of them have notched two wins at W2W this year.

Martis, Patton, Nigh and Lake Elsinore’s Troy McIntosh (F200) all lead the championship standings in their respective divisions heading into Saturday’s race.

At Saturday’s race, the staff at Wheel2Wheel will have “Race for the Rack” T-shirts for sale, raffles, and donation tubs in the stands during the races. Proceeds raised will go to a breast health organization to further breast cancer research, diagnostic services, treatment and support for those fighting the disease. Saturday’s event will also celebrate breast cancer survivorship, honor those who have lost their battle and spread awareness about this disease.

Wheel2Wheel Raceway is located adjacent to the 15 freeway on the San Bernardino County Fairgrounds in Victorville.

After Saturday’s race, the SCOK will bring down the curtain on the 2015 season on October 31 at Perris Auto Speedway.
