So Cal Oval Karters Head to Victorville Saturday

The So Cal Oval Karters will journey to the High Desert for the third time in  2017 this Saturday night, July 15th, to compete at “Annual Flyin’ Hawaiian Race” at John Aden’s Wheel2Wheel Raceway.  In addition to the SCOK, the Wheel2Wheel Speedway Sprints and Dirt Karts will also be on the card.  Spectator gates will open at 5:00 PM with racing at 6:00.

In the previous two appearances at W2W in 2017, the Hesperia father and son combo of Chris and Thomas Southern have stamped their authority in the KT 100 and Open Classes.  The local duo has split the KT 100 main events and father Chris has won both Open mains.

Not a Southern, but dominating like he is one, Leland, North Carolina native Ronnie Benton, who is currently based in San Diego while in the U.S. Navy, has won both Senior 4 Cycle races on the longtime San Bernardino County Fairgrounds oval in 2017.   In the F200’s, Whittier’s Steve Juillerat, the 2016 champion, and Norm Reynolds of San Marcos have split the first two races of the year at W2W.

In addition to all the adult classes, the Juniors will also be in action on Saturday.

Fans who wear a Hawaiian shirt, lei or Hawaiian themed clothing on Saturday will have the chance to win prizes at the track.

Fans wishing to attend the race can find Wheel2Wheel Raceway on the San Bernardino County Fairgrounds at 14800 7th Street in Victorville.  The track phone number is: 706-247-3987 and the website is available at the following link: http://www.wheel2wheelraceway.com/
