For Immediate Release

(Torrance, CA, September 28, 2016) The California Lightning Sprint Car Series will begin the final month of the 2016 campaign this Saturday night, October 1st, at the Ventura Raceway. The VRA Sprint Cars, Senior Sprints, Dwarfs and IMCA Modifieds will join the CLS at the show. Spectator gates will open at 3:00 with the first race at 5:30.

Three-time CLS champ Bobby Michnowicz heads into Saturday’s show at the picturesque ocean side oval on top of the points heap. The 52-year-old Lomita based racing veteran took the lead from San Bernardino’s James Heling at the last race at the Bakersfield Speedway on September 17th. Michnowicz is 15-points ahead of Heling in the championship chase. Pat Kelley of Chino, who has been plagued with engine problems the last few races, is third and trails the leader by 57-markers. Impressive rookie Cody Nigh of Camarillo is fourth and is 98-points off of the top spot. Upland’s Alex Grigoreas, who is out for the year, is fifth.

Saturday’s event will be the sixth of eight for the CLS at Ventura in 2016. The first five races have produced four different winners. Michnowicz, with two victories, is the only repeat winner and he has won the last two in a row. Grigoreas, Kelley and Victorville’s Jeff Dyer have also won at Ventura in 2016.

In the “Rookie of the Year” battle, Nigh continued to hold down the top spot over Lakewood teenagers Aiden Lange and Wyatt Downing. Lange trails Nigh by 69-points. Downing is 222-points behind the leader.

After Saturday, the last two races of the season will also take place at the Ventura Raceway on October 15th and 29th.

The Lighting Sprints next race is at I-35 Speedway in Winston, MO on Oct 8th. This race is the Show Me Spectacular, and will mark the end of our season for 2016.  Make plans to come out and watch the USAC sanctioned Midwest Lightning Sprints squirt the dirt next season at a track near you.

The racing in the MLS is fiercely competitive.  With motorcycle power and low cost maintenance, this is still the most economical way to go fast in a race car.  These cars are 1 second a lap faster than an A Mod or a Late Model.  New drivers/cars are coming out each week. There are good used cars for sale. Contact the MLS for info.





9/25/16 - After missing the previous race, Devin Feger came back to continue his outstanding 2016 campaign by winning once again at Peoria Speedway. After starting on the inside of the second row, Feger passed leader Daltyn England on lap 3, and was able to cruise to the double checkered flags. Rookie Daltyn England proved he will be a force to be reckoned with by picking up an impressive second place finish. Veteran driver Tim Brannam gave England a run for his money but ultimately came home in third. Billy Brickley and Ron Brannam rounded out the top 5.

Here's the latest information from Mike Long regarding the upcoming USAC sanctioning

Thank you to all for the strong participation in the last three conference calls. We have accomplished our goals and created a foundation to move forward with. To recap where we are, the updated rules are attached. These will now be packaged as a National rule book and redistributed when completed.

I want to thank Levi Jones for spending time with us to answer questions and announce the $10K points fund for 2017. USAC specifics are:

1. Individual groups/clubs will maintain internal control of their series, including but not limited to all financials, tech, procedural calls (line ups) and scheduling

2. Racers will not be required to join USAC and will serve no penalty for not doing so

a. Only USAC registered drivers will be eligible for National Points in sanctioned event.

    i.  Registration will open Jan. 1, 2017

b. Points will be awarded for actual finishing position only.

    i. Points are weighted by total car count per race

c. The drivers membership with USAC would provide them with the extra participant accident insurance

     i. Membership fee is $150 annually

3. Groups / clubs, with registered drivers, will be required to schedule a minimum of 10 USAC sanctioned races per season

a. Groups are permitted to hold events outside of USAC sanction

b.Sanctioned races will be noted upon issue of season schedule

4. Tracks will communicate and deal with each series directly

a. Any participating track would need to supply the group a valid Certificate of Insurance (COI) for a 1 million dollar general liability policy covering the entire year. All scheduled tracks will have their insurance provider email this to Levi at USAC.  

5. Points fund breakdown (thank you all for your ideas – I merged them below)

1. $3000

2. $2000

3. $1500

4. $800

5. $700

6. $600

7. $500

8. $400

9. $300

10. $200

6. Top three finishing positions will be recognized at USAC Night of Champions banquet in Indianapolis during PRI show every December.

We still have a few more things to iron out. I will be in communication with Levi and look forward to seeing you all next Saturday morning at the Museum of American Speed at 9am.






Now as you can see to the left, there are quite a few of the organizations that have yet to develop a website (indicated with white background)...however several of them do have email address'. If you go to the bottom of each information page, you can find the names and address', and phone numbers for those organizations. If you have any update information, please pass on pertinent info. Thanks.
