HANFORD, Calif. — official release — Petersen Media photo —
Friday night, the Keller Auto Speedway at the Kings Country Fairgrounds will be back in action as the King of Kings 360’s highlights the three division program that also includes the IMCA Mods and IMCA Sport Mods.
In what will be the KoK 360’s third event of the 2015 season, the action has been second to none this year — late race passes have netted both Steven Tiner, and most recently Cory Eliason, thrilling wins.
Though it is still very early in the season, Steven Tiner leads the star studded field to action on Friday night with a three point advantage over Eliason, an 11-point advantage of DJ Netto, as Craig Stidham sits in fourth 15 markers out of the lead, while Landon Hurst rounds of the top-five just 30 points out of first place.
Much like the KoK 360’s, the IMCA Mods have put on some thrilling racing of their own, and will be back at the high speed 3/8 mile facility on Friday night. In the last two IMCA Mod Races, Brian Burns won a thrilling drag race back on April 24 by a margin of .036 seconds, while Robby Sawyer made a last lap, last corner pass to pick up the win just one week ago.
Though he had some mechanical issues while leading late in Friday night’s feature event, Ethan Dotson leads the series championship standings, over Brian Burns, Chad Reichenbach, Jimmy Reeves, and Roger Holder making up the top five.
Gary Dutton leads the Sport Mods back into action, as he sits atop the point standings by way of his win two weeks ago and fourth place finish last week. Nick Spainhourard currently sits second, with the series’ most recent winner, Ricky Childress Jr. third, Kruz Griffith fourth and Danny Roe fifth.
The Keller Auto Speedway encourages all fans to come out for an action packed night of racing on Friday, as racing is fully back and running in Kings County.
Action continues at the Keller Auto Speedway this Friday night with Round No. 3 of the King of Kings 360 series, as they will be joined by the IMCA Modifieds as well as the IMCA Sport Mods. Grandstands are set to open at 5 p.m., with racing action scheduled to hit the track at 7 p.m. Adult tickets can be purchased for $15, with Seniors and Students for $12, while kids six and under are free.
