Croft Primed For Saturday’s Sprint Car Challenge Tour Opener


PETERSEN MEDIA- Spending the month of March battling with the World of Outlaws during their Spring West Coast Swing, Willie Croft is primed for some 360ci action this Saturday night as he is set to take part in the Elk Grove Ford Sprint Car Challenge pres. by Abreu Vineyards season opener on Saturday night in Placerville, CA.

“We had a good month of racing with the World of Outlaws and getting our season started,” Willie Croft said. “It has been good to work and gel with Crew Chief Wayne Priddy, and I am excited to see what we can do with the SCCT this year after finishing second in points last year.”

Saturday night saw Croft and his Willie Croft Racing team make the trip to Bakersfield Speedway to take part in the World of Outlaws final start in the Golden State until their return trip later this Fall.

Timing the Holey Smokes BBQ/ButlerBuilt/Brown and Miller backed No. 29 machine in 15th quickest amongst the 37 cars checked into the pit area, Croft would find himself in the second row of his heat race.

Coming away with a seventh place finish, Croft and company would go to work as they were slated to start on the front row of the night’s Last Chance Showdown. Battling with a couple of familiar foes in Kyle Hirst and Rico Abreu, Croft would give it his all to make his way into the feature event.

With the LCS checkered flag in the air, Croft would make  a bid for the final transfer position, but he would come up short as a fifth place finish would end his night.

“Saturday was just an off night for us,” Willie Croft said. “You’re bound to have those, and the goal is to just limit the number you have. Moving forward to this weekend, we will hopefully have the same speed with the 360ci that we had a couple of weeks back in Chico. It its going to be a tough field, but I think we are in a really good spot heading into this race.”

Willie Croft Racing would like to thank Holey Smokes BBQ, ButlerBuilt , Brown and Miller, FK Rod Ends, Hinchman Indy, Factory Kahne, Schoenfeld, Simpson Race Products, Smith Precision Products, Kaeding Performance, AL Drivelines, XYZ, Vortex Wings, Amerikote, and GUTS for their support in 2018.
