SO CAL LIGHTNING SPRINTS MAKE BARONA DEBUT THIS SATURDAY

 

(El Cajon, CA, April 10, 2024) This Saturday night, April 13th, the So Cal Lightning Sprint Club will make its second attempt to get in its first race of the season at its home track, the Barona Speedway during the Gregg Smith Memorial. The race, which will be the third of the year for the new group, will be the first of eight in 2024 on the San Diego County quarter-mile oval.  The initial Barona appearance for 2024 that was slated for March 30th was canceled when heavy rains hit the area. 

 

After last month’s rainout, SCLS president Dustin Dumas hopes bad weather does not intervene again at the track that is located about six miles from the Barona Casino and Resort.  In case of inclement weather in the area on Saturday, everyone is urged to check out the SCLS Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/racescls or phone the track at (619) 994-6560. 

 

With the rainout last month, series regulars are anxious to get back on the track as it is five weeks since the first two races of the 2024 campaign were held during the California Mid-Winter Fair at the Imperial Valley Raceway.  Aiden Lange of Lakewood and Fillmore’s Connor Speir won the season-opening competitions on March 1st and 2nd.  Going into Saturday’s race, Lange and Barona local Brent Sexton of Lakeside are tied for the series lead with 182 points.  Veteran Cody Nigh of Camarillo is third.  Nigh only trails the two drivers deadlocked at the top by two markers.  Speir is fourth and San Diego’s Ryan Dumas is fifth.

 

Last season under the POWRi Southwest banner, the Lightning Sprints visited Barona four times.  The intense high-speed action produced four different winners.  They were local Cody Griggs of Lakeside, San Diegans Parker Dumas & Darren Brown, and Yucca Valley’s Jeff Dyer. 

 

Over the past three seasons when the lightnings competed at Barona under the POWRi Southwest Lightning Sprint Car Series banner, the track played host to 18 lightning races.  Grant Sexton, the 2021 SWLS champion, headed the victory list with six wins.  His older brother Dalton captured three first-place trophies on the long-time clay oval.  Parker Dumas of San Diego and Brent Sexton, the 2022 SWLS King, triumphed two times each.  California Highway Patrol Officer Jeff Dyer of Yucca Valley, San Diegan’ David Bezio, Braden Chiaramonte, who calls El Cajon home, Griggs, and Brown had single victories.

 

After Saturday, the SCLS will return to Barona on May 25th. 

 

In addition to the So Cal Lightning Sprints, the IMCA Modifieds, IMCA Sport Mods, IMCA Sport Compacts, Dwarf Cars, Hobby Stocks, Mini Dwarfs, and Junior Sprints will also be in action.   

 

Gates will open at noon on Saturday with racing at 6:00.  Adult tickets are $20.00.  For kids 7 to 17, admission is $10.00.  Seniors, Military, and EMTs also get in for $10.00.  Children 6 and under are free.  Family packs of two adults and two kids are $50.00.  Parking is free. 

 

The Barona Speedway is located at 1754 Wildcat Canyon Road, in Lakeside, California.  The track website https://baronaspeedway.com/ and the phone number is (619) 994-6560.

 

The So Cal Lightning Sprint Car Series would like to thank AG Sandcars and Triple X Race Cars for being a part of the club’s inaugural season.  If you or your company would like to be a marketing partner with SCLS, contact Dustin Dumas at (619) 992-8308 or info@socallightningsprints.com.
