Hanford, CA- After a couple of calm Friday night’s in Kings County, things will get loud once again as the racing returns to the Keller Auto Speedway Friday night for the first of four Battle For the Milk Can events.
A mini-series inside of the regular point battle, the Duinkerken Farms King of Kings 360’s (4 Races), the McAlister’s Auto IMCA Mods (3 Races), and the RaceChic IMCA Sport Mods (3 Races) will battle for extra cash, and the coveted Milk Can trophy that will be presented to the overall champion later this summer.
Heading into Friday night, night number two winner, Cory Eliason leads the championship standings for the Duinkerken Farms King of Kings 360’s. A very strong start to the season has him leading opening night winner, Steven Tiner by four digits, DJ Netto by six digits, Craig Stidham by 17 points, and Landon Hurts rounds out the top five 38 points back.
This week the Battle For the Milk Can kick off means the Duinkerken Farms King of Kings 360’s will be after a cool $3,000 to win, and $300 to start the feature event as they will at each of the four Battle For the Milk Can events.
The McAlister’s Auto IMCA Mods come into Friday night’s Battle For The Milk Can opener looking for a piece of the $750 to win, as the field chases after last week’s feature event winner, Bryan Burnes. Burnes leads a very tight championship battle as Ethan Dotson sits in the second spot just five points out of the top spot. Sitting in third, Chad Reichenbach is just 11markers out of the top spot, while Roger Holder is just 16 back in the fourth spot, and Jeff Streeter sits in fifth just 40 points out of the top spot.
After a very impressive last two races at the Keller Auto Speedway, Ricky Childress, Jr has surged into the RaceChic IMCA Sport Mods point lead, as he had a slim three point lead over Cruz Griffith. Childress has taken command over the top spot on the strength of two straight feature event wins. Gary Dutton is very much in striking distance in the third spot, just a mere nine markers back, while Nick Spainhourard is in fourth 11 back, and Danny Roe is 14 behind as he rounds out the Top-5.
Like the other two series’ the RaceChic IMCA Sport Mods begin their pursuit of the Milk Can on Friday night, as they race for the $600 to win.
Friday night the front gates will open up at 5pm with Adult General Admission tickets available for $15. Students and Seniors tickets can be purchased for $12, while children 5 and under are free.
