So Cal Oval Karters End Season Saturday at Perris Auto Speedway
A little more than 7 ½ months and 12-races ago, The So Cal Oval Karters opened their 2015 season at the Perris Raceway. Only a few miles away from where that season opener took place, the popular karting club will bring down the curtain on the successful year at Perris Auto Speedway this Saturday afternoon, October 31st. Gates will open at 9:00 AM and the first race will be at noon. In honor of Halloween, all Junior racers will race for free.
Point leaders Troy Patton of Cherry Valley in the KT100’s, Troy McIntosh of Lake Elsinore in the F200’s, Bonita’s Matt Martis in the Senior 4 Cycles and Camarillo’s Mike Nigh in the Open Class, will all be on hand and can all wrap 2015 championships on Saturday. In addition to the four adult classes, the JrJr Class for kids will be in action before they jump into their Halloween costumes to collect candy treats on Saturday night.
The SCOK will also be offering their popular arrive and drive program. Potential new drivers can jump into a race kart built by the So Cal Oval Karters and cut some laps. The cost is only $25.00 for 10 laps (there is also a $10.00 admission fee to the facility). The “Arrive and Drive” is designed for kids age 8 and up and for adults as well and allows prospective racers to give karting a try for a few dollars to see if they like it. If they do, they can then jump in with both feet, get equipment and be ready for the 2016 season opener.
Arrive and drive drivers have to wear tennis shoes, a long sleeve jacket and jeans. If they have a helmet, it is recommended they bring that as well, but for those who do not have one, some helmets will be available. Gloves and racing collars will be supplied by the SCOK.
Spectators can attend the event, but are advised that the grandstands will not be open. Spectators will have to enter via the pit parking lot, buy a pit pass for $10.00 and watch from behind the k-rail of the track that will be built in the infield.
