$1,200.00 FOR FAST QUALIFIERS AT THE OVAL NATIONALS!
(Perris, CA, October 16, 2013) Drivers in the
Amsoil USAC National and USAC/CRA Sprint Cars will have some
extra dough to shoot for in the 18th Annual Budweiser Oval
Nationals Presented by All Coast Construction at Perris Auto
Speedway on November 1st and 2nd. Due to the generosity of the
Wilkerson Family and the Woodland Automotive Display in Paso
Robles, the fast qualifier both nights will collect the
$600.00 Billy Wilkerson Fast Time Award. Advance tickets for
the prestigious race, that will also include a separate 360
race on October 31st, are available 24 hours a day online at:
http://pas.tix.com/Schedule.aspx?OrgNum=7. They can also be
purchased by telephone at: 1-800-595-4849.
The award, which is named after the two-time CRA champion
(1967 & 1970) and National Sprint Car Hall of Famer, was
announced Monday by his wife Anne.
Born in Nashville, Tennessee, the late driver moved to the San
Gabriel Valley with his family when he was two-years-old.
After serving in the Navy from 1942 through 1948, Wilkerson
began his illustrious racing career in Jalopies in 1949 at
Lakeland Stadium in El Monte. From day one he was known as a
driver who was always on the throttle.
“Thanks to the Wilkerson family and the Woodland Automotive
Display for spicing up the action with such a generous offer
to our drivers,” promoter Don Kazarian said on Tuesday.
“$600.00 for about 16 seconds is pretty darn good money.
Having the award in honor of Billy Wilkerson is very
appropriate as he was always on the throttle from the first
lap of qualifying through the final lap of the main event.”
An up to date list of the cars already entered for the
November 1st and 2nd portion of the show is posted below.
