(March 14, 2021 from Lance Jennings) – Racing past Brody Roa on the twenty-third circuit, Max Adams (Loomis, CA) led the rest of the way to claim Saturday’s $3,000 feature at The Dirt Track at Kern County Raceway Park. Racing Keith Ford’s #73 Cam 2 Blue Blood Racing Oil / Sun Valley AG Transport Triple X, Adams scored the third AMSOIL USAC/CRA Sprint Car victory of his career. Roa, “The Demon” Damion Gardner, new point leader “The Big Game Hunter” Austin Williams, and Matt Mitchell followed the defending Gas City I-69 Speedway champion to the finish line. Chris Gansen earned the night’s In Memory of Jim & Chet Gardner Hard Charger Award with nineteenth to sixth place run.

For the second night in a row, Gardner claimed the Woodland Auto Display Fast Time Award by posting a time of 14.571 over the 32-car roster. The 8-time champion now has 93 quick times to his credit.

The 10-lap heat race victories went to Mitchell (Flowdynamics / Factory Wraps First Heat), Davey Ray (Huntington Beach Glass & Mirror / Factory Wraps Second Heat), Austin Liggett (All Coast Construction / Factory Wraps Third Heat), and “Chargin” Charles Davis Jr. (Component Repair Company / Factory Wraps Fourth Heat). Jake Hodges topped the 12-lap semi-main in his self-built Racecrafters chassis.

The traditional 410 sprints will return action on Friday, March 26 at the Thunderbowl Raceway in Tulare, California.
