So Cal Oval Karters Close 2017 Season Saturday on Perris Auto Speedway Road Race

The So Cal Oval Karters club will close its 10th season this Saturday, November 4th, on the road course at Perris Auto Speedway.  The pit gate will open at 9:00 A.M. and racing will begin at 11:30.

Originally scheduled to be an oval race, club officials changed it to a road course event after the success of the June 10th race at the Riverside County racing plant.  The track, which will be around ¼ a mile long, will be cut into the infield of The PAS half-mile clay oval.

Winners at the June 10th road race at The PAS were Chris Gibb in the KT100’s, Michael Korody on the Open Class, Jeffrey Butler in the Senior 4 Cycles and Norm Reynolds in the F200’s.  Also on June 10th, Brandon Head won the Junior main and started a five-race winning streak.  He will be going for his sixth straight win on Saturday.

The SCOK completed its point season three weeks ago at John Aden’s Wheel2Wheel Raceway on the San Bernardino County Fairgrounds in Victorville.  Thomas Southern of Hesperia, who has dominated the KT100’s all season long, swept the show winning both heats and the main and secured the class championship.  Southern’s father Chris, sewed up the championship in the Open Class at W2W when he won his fourth main event of the year.  Tailor Roa of Garden Grove took her first ever SCOK main event when she beat close friend Emma Herzog of Anaheim to checkers in the Senior 4 Cycles.  Norm Reynolds of San Marcos won his fourth race of the year and the championship in the F200’s.  And, as posted above, Head won his fifth straight Junior race.

The SCOK will have a club meeting on December 2nd to discuss plans and the way forward for next year.  The meeting, which will begin at 1:00 P.M., will be held at: YOA Worldwide Headquarters, 14746 Valeda Drive, La Mirada, CA  90638.  The meeting is open to members and non-members and snacks and drinks will be provided.  Club officials would like to see everyone there and hope to get everyone’s input for the future.
