So Cal Oval Karters and Norco Mowers at SoCal Fair Motorcycle Speedway Saturday

The So Cal Oval Karters will contest round six of the championship season this Saturday, July 21st, at SoCal Fair Motorcycle Speedway on the SoCal Fair and Event Center in Perris.  Joining the SCOK on its home track will be the racing mowers of the Norco Mower Racing Organization.  Gates will open at 9:00 A.M. with practice at 11:00 and the first race at noon.

Due to extensive work on the track by members of the SCOK and NMRO two weeks ago, competitors will be greeted by a new racing surface and the scorers and the starter will have some new creature comforts.  The track surface has been completely revamped since the last race four weeks ago and sunshades have been added for the scorers and starter.

“We all left our houses about 4:30 in the morning and got to the track about 6:00,” SCOK head man Matt Jones told club members and fans on a video on the club’s Facebook page.   “Wesley (Crabtree) from the Norco Mowers came out with his tractor and graded the track for us.  It is flat on the inside groove and then has about a 5% grade (bank) on the outside.  Hopefully, we can get a two-groove track going.  We want to thank him.  The next race is going to go good and I hope to see everyone there.”

All five SCOK classes – Yamaha of America KT100’s, Colt Group Open Class, Burris Racing F200’s, Caltrol Incorporated Senior Clones, Fair Oaks Ranch Junior Clones and Ancon Marine Junior/Juniors – will be in action on Saturday.  Hesperia’s Thomas Southern comes in as the point leader in the KT100’s and the Opens.  Steve Juillerat of Whittier, seeking his second championship in three years, leads in the F200’s.  San Diego’s Jeffrey Butler leads in the Senior Clones and Riverside’s Drake Cardey is on top of the Junior Clones.

In addition to the five classes of the SCOK, the NMRO will have two classes in action on Saturday.  Anybody who thinks these drivers are racing lawnmowers like grandpa putted around on in the backyard needs to look at the club’s Facebook page.

For those who want to make a full day and night of racing, there will be auto racing Saturday night at Perris Auto Speedway, which is located a couple hundred feet from the track the karts will be racing on.  The PASSCAR Stock Car Series and IMCA Modifieds will supply the action in a show that begins at 7:00 P.M.
