Shawn Wright To Make 2015 Civil War Debut Saturday Night


PETERSEN MEDIA- After spending the last two weekends taking on the World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series, Shawn Wright will put his 360ci engine back in his machine, and make his first start with the Civil War Sprint Car Series at the Petaluma Speedway on Saturday night.

“Taking on the World of Outlaws is tough, and we didn’t qualify well in Tulare, and this past weekend we still struggled,” Wright said.

Stopping in at the Stockton Dirt Track for the FVP Western Spring Shootout, Wright timed his Wright Process Systems/A.R.T. No. 99 machine in 29th quickest on Saturday night before timing in 34th fastest on Sunday night.

Lining up in the fourth row of his Saturday night heat race, Wright would finish ninth in the race, putting his Wilwood/Hixco/Wesmar Racing Engines machine in the evening’s Last Chance Showdown, where he would finis in the 11th spot.

Back in action on Sunday night, Wright would finish eighth in his heat race, before a 14th place finish in the LCS on an extremely slick surface would end his weekend.

This weekend, Wright sets his sights back on 360 racing, as he is set to take on the Civil War Series in Petaluma, CA. Wright kicked his season off at the end of February at the Marysville Raceway with his 360ci engine, and managed to work his way forward to a sixth place finish on that night, earning hard charger honors.

“We are looking forward to getting to Petaluma this weekend, and hopefully having a better weekend of racing,” he added.

Wright Motorsports would like to thank Wright Process Systems, A.R.T., Wilwood, Hixco, Wesmar Racing Engines, Super Shox, Larry Davis Farms, Kevin Sharrah Designs, DMI, HRP Racing Products, and Dan Olson Race Products for their support in 2015.

2015 BY THE NUMBERS: Starts-5, Wins-0, Top 5’s- 0, Top 10’s-1

ON TAP: Shawn will be back in action this Saturday night as he takes on the Civil War Series at the Petaluma Speedway.
