PERRIS AUTO SPEEDWAY LAUNCHES 
SENIOR SPRINT CLASS!

(Perris, CA, February 7, 2011) Perris Auto Speedway, Southern California's Home to Major League Sprint Car Racing, is pleased to announce that it will host four Senior Sprint Car races in 2011. The races will be for drivers 45 years of age and older. 

The initial race for the senior class will be on May 28th and will be run in conjunction with the Annual Salute to Indy for the Amsoil USAC/CRA Sprint Cars and the California Lightning Sprint Cars. Subsequent dates will be June 25th, July 30th and August 27th.

"This is a Non Sanctioned Open Class – the only rule is the engine must be 360 cubic inches, cast iron block, fuel injected or normally aspirated," promoter Don Kazarian said last week when he announced the class. "No gaskets, restrictors or any of that garbage needed. No weight rule! No Tire Rule! This is “Old School – Run Watcha' Brung Sprint Car racing!"

"This is for the guy in the stands who may not have had the money to race when he was younger or the older driver who wants to compete in a more relaxed atmosphere," Kazarian said. "It is a trophy class and the top three drivers in the main event will take home the hardware. Drivers will draw for starting positions and they will contest eight lap heat races and a 20 lap main event. Points will be accumulated and at the end of the year the "Perris Auto Speedway Senior Sprint Champion" will receive a championship award."

Based on the response the new Senior class receives, a final race may be staged during the 16th Annual Budweiser Oval Nationals on November 4th and 5th. 

The PAS will kick off the 2011 season the following Saturday, March 12th, when the Amsoil USAC/CRA Sprint Cars and the California Lightning Sprint Cars contest the annual Sokola Shootout on the famous half-mile clay oval.
