- SANDERS SNAGS ANOTHER PETALUMA WIN WHILE SCELZI WRAPS UP FASTEST FOUR DAYS TITLE
(8/29/21 - Alex Nieten) Petaluma, CA ... By leading all 30 laps, Justin Sanders claimed his second win in the last four NARC-King of the West Fujitsu Sprint Car events while Dominic Scelzi finished third to earn the Fastest Four Days in Motorsports title at the historic Petaluma Speedway. The win is Sanders' third 30-lap Fujitsu General USA Feature of the year, ninth career, and second aboard the Kevin Kozlowski owned and Paul Silva prepared Works Limited No. 57. On the tacky, quick racing surface, Sanders had to remain focused each and every lap. "Just trying not to make any mistakes and trying to keep the car underneath me as hard as I could," Sanders said of what was required to grab the checkered flag. Rounding out the podium was Dominic Scelzi, marking his sixth straight appearance in the top-three and securing enough points for the $2,000 to win Fastest Four Days in Motorsports championship. The Jimmy Carr-prepared Scelzi Enterprises/Red Rose Transportation No. 41 appears incapable of having an off night even with the grueling challenge presented by the Fastest Four Days in Motorsports. "This is a very tough four days," Scelzi said. "You go to four completely different racetracks, and you have to be fast every single night, and the 41 car has been so good to drive every single night this year. It feels great to have that consistency." The field was brought to green by Sanders and Scelzi, and Sanders quickly darted to a five car-length advantage. Behind him, Colby Copeland moved around Scelzi into second on lap one aboard the Larry Antaya Motorsports Fire Protection Management 16A. Copeland began his pursuit of Sanders, who, oddly enough, was attempting to mirror what he did in May in the car Copeland wheeled, lead from green to checkered. Copeland looked to the inside of Sanders early on in turn three but couldn't make it work. Then, in typical Petaluma fashion, a game of cat and mouse through lap traffic ensued. Sanders would clear a car, and Copeland was forced to match his moves to have any chance of keeping up. The two dueled through slower cars, but ultimately Copeland was unable to mount a serious charge for the lead. Every time it seemed like he might reel him in and have an opportunity to make a move, Sanders would put a little more space between the two. When the checkered flag flew, Sanders crossed the line with a cozy 1.039 second advantage. Despite again dominating by leading every lap on the fast 3/8th mile, Sanders was humble in victory lane. "I think I put together a decent 30-laps," Sanders said. "They weren't great, but they were good enough to get the job done. Sanders' efforts earned him a $4,000 payday while Scelzi took home $2,000 for winning the Fastest Four Days in Motorsports title on top of his race earnings. Scelzi also stretched his growing point lead a little more in the overall NARC standings. Shane Golobic finished fourth, securing top-5 results in all four nights of the FFDM, and Rico Abreu completed the top-5. The remainder of the top-10 was Bud Kaeding, Tim Kaeding, Joel Myers Jr, Sean Becker and Andy Forsberg. The night started off with rising start, Joel Myers Jr., claiming ARP Fast Time.

- Sanders Wins Feature; Scelzi Wins Fastest Four Days in Motorsports Championship
Justin Sanders closed out the "Fastest Four Days in Motorsports" with the King of the West Sprint Car Series presented by NARC Sunday night at Petaluma Speedway by winning the feature event.
- UNSTOPPABLE: SCELZI'S MAGICAL SEASON AND FASTEST FOUR DAYS CONTINUES WITH STOCKTON CHAMPION'S CLASSIC WIN
(8/28/2021 - Alex Nieten) Stockton, CA... Dominic Scelzi's dream season just keeps on rolling. The pilot of the Scelzi Enterprises/Red Rose Transportation No. 41 notched his fourth NARC-King of the West Fujitsu Sprint Car victory of 2021 with a masterful drive from his starting spot on the third row at the Stockton Dirt Track Saturday night. The result in day three of the Fastest Four Days in Motorsports also marked his fifth consecutive series podium as he continues to hunt his first career NARC title. Scelzi was quick to credit his crew for the consistent success. "With Jimmy Carr," Scelzi said in victory lane. "I say it every week, the guy just gives me a perfect racecar every night." The Champion's Classic field was brought to green by DJ Netto and Justin Sanders. Netto got the initial jump into turn one, but Sanders powered underneath Netto out of turn four to lead the opening circuit. Sanders continued to lead with Netto close behind until lap 10 when Netto was able to slip back by in his Netto Ag/Penny Newman Grain 88N. Sanders came to a stop in turn four on the next lap with a mechanical issue but was able to rejoin after the caution and tag the tail. The green flag on lap 11 immediately brought another yellow for Corey Day who had trouble on the backstretch before a lap was complete, ending his night. Scelzi began his charge after the caution for Day. Scelzi lined up fifth for the restart and watched his competitors all head for the top side when the green dropped. On lap 12 Scelzi rolled the bottom perfectly to jump by two cars onto the podium. The following lap he took over second from Rico Abreu. Just two laps later, Scelzi squeezed to the inside of Netto to grab the lead into turn one. Netto would not go down without a fight as he launched a slider the next lap to regain top spot and lead lap 16, but Scelzi countered with a crossover and was able to distance himself from the reigning champion just enough to get some breathing room. Lap traffic came into play with under 10 laps remaining as Scelzi and Netto both had to navigate slower cars on what was a tricky surface. Netto made daring moves to get by lap cars and keep Scelzi in his sights. The pilot of the 88N approached Scelzi's tail tank on multiple occasions as the laps dwindled, but he couldn't quite gain enough momentum to make another move for the lead. Scelzi hung on to win by just under two seconds. Behind the battle for the lead, Tanner Carrick quietly moved forward in his Carrick Motorsports/CVC Concrete 83T from his eleventh starting spot to finish in third for his second career series podium. Carrick's efforts also earned him Swift Metal Finishing Hardcharger honors. Scelzi's win in the Champion's Classic marked his third KWS triumph at Stockton, and it netted him $6,000. The point leader extended his lead in the standings and his advantage in the Fastest Four Days in Motorsports points. The Fresno native just continues to put together a west coast racing season for the history books, and he's enjoying every moment along the way. "I'm in awe," Scelzi said. "I really can't believe our car is this good every single night." The remainder of the top-10 was Rico Abreu, Shane Golobic, Colby Copeland, Sean Becker, Tim Kaeding, Bud Kaeding and Jessie Attard. The NARC-KWS Fujitsu Sprint Cars can next be seen in action Sunday August 29th at Petaluma Speedway for the Fastest Four Days in Motorsports finale. FUJITSU GENERAL USA FEATURE (30 laps): 1.

- ROAD TRIP: FASTEST FOUR DAYS IN MOTORSPORTS ON TAP FOR NARC-KING OF THE WEST SPRINT CARS
(8/23/21) Sacramento, CA ... The NARC King of the West Fujitsu Sprint Car Series reaches the centerpiece of the 2021 schedule this week when the Fastest Four Days in Motorsports (FFDM) will take teams and fans on a four-day tour of Nor-Cal. This year marks the second edition of the FFDM. Tim Kaeding claimed the inaugural edition in 2019 by winning two of the four races, and COVID-19 regulations erased the 2020 FFDM from the calendar. (ED NOTE: The originally scheduled August 25th show at Placerville Speedway was canceled because the El Dorado County Fairgrounds were transformed into a staging are for firefighters and equipment battling the Caldor fire.) Racing kicks off Thursday August 26th at Merced Speedway for Thursday Night Thunder. The following night takes the series to Watsonville's Ocean Speedway for the third and final visit to the coastal bullring in 2021. Saturday the caravan will head to Stockton Dirt Track for the $6,000 to win Champion's Classic that also features a $3,000 to win 360 sprint car show. The FFDM wraps up Sunday with the third series appearance at Petaluma Speedway this year. The FFDM will be incentivized by a $8,000 point fund that will award $2,000 to the winner of the final standings and distribute the remainder among the drivers who finish 2nd-12th in points. Also, on top of the $6,000 to win race at Stockton, the other three events will all be $4,000 to win. Both the point fund and the heightened purses at Stockton will provide an opportunity for some drivers to have a very lucrative week! On Thursday in Merced NARC will be joined by Mini Stocks, Mini Late Models and IMCA Northern SportMods. Friday at Ocean IMCA Sport Mods, Hobby Stocks and South Bay Dwarf Cars will share the card. Stockton will feature the $3,000 to win 360 sprint car event and NorCal Dwarf Cars. Joining NARC on Sunday in Petaluma will be Super Stocks, Dwarf Cars and Hardtops. The entire four-day blitz of racing guarantees to offer plenty of excitement. Competitors will be vying for the extra money up for grabs alluded to above, and the situation atop the series standings may shake up. Dominic Scelzi currently holds a slim six-point lead over reigning champ DJ Netto, and just 15-markers behind Netto is 2015 titlist Bud Kaeding.

- NARC NEWSLINE - AUGUST 20, 2021
NARC NEWSLINE - AUGUST 20, 2021, By Jim Allen ... According to the official NARC King of the West Fujitsu Sprint Car Series schedule, we've got nine races in the books with 11 more to go, including a flurry of them on the smoky horizon. Everybody in California is gearing up for a Fastest Four Days in Motorsports. Yes ..., we know that just a few short days ago, it was the fastest five-days, but we were forced to improvise when, yet another fire decided to wreak havoc on Northern California. Now Placerville Speedway's pit area is a staging and rest area for overworked fire crews and equipment fighting a massive fire in El Dorado County. And depending on how the wind is blowing, that may put a crimp in the rest of their local racing season. Let's hope they get these fires out soon. Either way, four races in four days at four different tracks still represents a delectable slice of sprint car racing heaven! To top it off, with the 2021 championship at stake, this centerpiece will probably have huge implications on what team's name will be locked into the NARC King of the West history books. Just so our calendars are synchronized, Merced Speedway will now host the opener on Thursday, August 26th, followed by Ocean Speedway, the Stockton Dirt Track and Petaluma Speedway on consecutive nights. As defending champ DJ Netto calmly stated at a recent driver's meeting, "it's all going to come down to NARC Speedweek." I tend to agree with that statement! What else is at stake? Each feature will pay $4000 to the winner, except for the August 28th show at the Stockton Dirt Track which will cash out $6000 to the top dog of the 30-lap Champions Classic headliner. Promoter Tony Noceti also bolted on a 360-sprint car show to the line-up at Stockton which pays $3000 to the winner. Expect a few teams to "double-up." Overall, there is a $8,000 point fund that will pay shares to the top 12 in points during the four-race blast. The champ will pocket $2,000 for his adventures, plus a one-of-a-kind custom FFDM trophy, which will rock the champions mantle for decades to come. It's a gem! FFDM PREDICTIONS, THOUGHTS & NOTES: At least one of these young drivers - Ryan Robinson, Corey Day, and Joel Myers Jr. - has a good chance to win their first NARC-KWS feature during the four days. Robinson should have won at Petaluma in July but got snagged by slower traffic. Day has proven to be fast and is beginning to gel with Paul Baines and Tarlton Motorsports. And Myers drives well beyond his 15-years of age. ... Who else is overdue? How about Shane Golobic? He has been all over the podium this season, except for the tall one in the middle. Can he win two? Absolutely! Can he win three? Wouldn't bet against it! ... Oregon's Brian Boswell will be tackling all four nights of racing. ... Roseville's Colby Copeland will be making his first extended-stay on the 2021 KWS campaign piloting Larry Antaya's 16A sprint car. What does that mean for regular shoe Justin Sanders? Something big, which we can't tell you right now. ... The last time the NARC 410 sprint cars pulled into the Merced Speedway pit area, Ross Perot was running for president and Sharon Stone uncrossed her legs and sent millions of teenage boys into puberty with the movie Basic Instinct. The year was 1992 and Tim Green captured a double-feature show that eventually led to his second NARC championship. That is way too long of a time span. Which brings to question; is Basic Instinct on Netflix? ... Many fans asked why a replacement venue wasn't found for Placerville after the cancellation. It was researched but there were no takers for a Wednesday night show with a week's notice. Not to mention, most Fairgrounds don't allow midweek shows. ... Tim Kaeding, the winner of the 2019 edition of the FFDM aboard Rod Tiner's 83SA, is a driver who wins in bunches. He is driving excellent equipment with Joshua Bates and Roger Hamilton, so don't rule out a repeat! ... FROM THIS MONTH'S ... "YOU'VE GOT TO BE KIDDING ME" DEPARTMENT: Santa Maria Raceway threw a giant wrench into the dirt track grinder by surprising many with news that they were shutting down operations as of August 9, 2021. Track owner/operator Nick Duggan, who bought the facility in 2018, published a lengthy release on the tracks Facebook site explaining the adversity, obstacles, and political nightmares they have had to deal with. We all knew the pressure was on the racetrack, but not to what level until he spelled it out in detail. Unfortunately, his press release provided as much joy as experiencing an emergency root canal and colonoscopy on the same day, or an ex-wife coming to visit because "she wants to talk." Don't deny it, California racetracks are under direct assault. Calistoga! Petaluma! And several others are beginning to put on their body armor. The thought was that privately-owned facilities like Santa Maria would be immune from the drama effecting State fairgrounds, but all it did was make the legal bills larger for the track owner. In a State where there are more than 266,000 lawyers, it's really no surprise a few filed expensive and threatening lawsuits because of the "environmental impact" and violation of "use-permits" by Santa Maria Raceway. What do you think was going to happen when a local housing tract began creeping closer and closer to the historic track? If the environment was going to be impacted, we think something would have happened by now, especially since the track opened in 1964. Instead of environmental impact, we should be talking about the positive "economic impact." And since racetracks are entertainment venues, it needs to do more than just racing events, because promoters are working on super slim margins, especially after the pandemic. Unfortunately, housing developers usually have deep pockets and politicians in their back pockets and don't typically care about these types of issues. The straw that broke the proverbial camel's back is when the County and District Supervisor couldn't get on the same page regarding long-existing "use permits" and the types of events that could be held at the facility. That complicated matters even more and the legal bills and fines continued to pile up, forcing Santa Maria to pull the plug. The local Homeowners Association also issued a press release with their point of view. It's like comparing Fox News to CNN. By the time you get done reading both, you need lots of alcohol. So, what can you do to help? Well, I'm glad you asked! The track may be shuttered for now, but there is still a faint pulse. We need the racing community to burn up the phones and call the following two bureaucrats. Explain what Santa Maria Raceway means to you. This includes how much money you spend in the area (trust me, they understand the money deal), the quality of entertainment the facility provides, and what a loss it would be if it closed permanently. Be professional, don't cuss and drive the point home. Wade Horton is the San Luis Obispo County Administrator. He can be reached at 805-781-5011. Lynne Compton is the 4th District Supervisor. She can be reached at 805-781-5450. NARC NOTES: And to answer your next question, the September 25th race at Santa Maria is cancelled (unless you see a pig fly by!) However, don't expect our series to lose the race date. A new location will be announced shortly. ... Just in case you were in a coma and missed the month of July, Tim Kaeding (Petaluma), Sean Becker (Ocean Speedway), Dominic Scelzi (Tulare) and Billy Aton (Santa Maria) were feature event winners. Even though TK has won 71 King of the West races in his career, he makes every win seem like his first. You can count on fist pumps, team hugs, an obligatory wheelie as he crosses the checkered, and a million-dollar smile. That's enough to get any fan excited. By the way, Andy Forsberg was strong all night and scored second at Petaluma, chased by early-race leader Bud Kaeding to fill out the "40-year and older" podium. ... ... If you are into pure raw emotion after a heartfelt and overdue victory, then Sean Becker climbing the fence at Ocean and fist pumping to the crowd after claiming a stout $6900 payday at the Howard Kaeding Classic was a keeper also. Becker and the Dave Vertullo 83V sprinter survived a metal crunching feature that seriously damaged at least half of the 24-car field in two big accidents. Tanner Carrick posted a KWS career best second and Mitchell Faccinto was third. ... Special thanks to all the great sponsors who supported the HK race. Your generous contributions allowed this show to pay the enhanced winners share and a minimum of $1000 to start the feature - plus there were a ton of other perks for fast time mechanic, heat race winners, and non-transfers. Geoffrey Strole took home a 50" TV as the first B-main non-transfer. That doesn't happen every day! Bud Kaeding's fundraising efforts also kicked in a substantial amount of money to the Friday night portion of the HKC. ... Corey Day made his debut aboard the Tarlton Motorsports #21. He timed in third quick, but got crashed out in the feature, finishing 14th. ... More than $5000 was raised for the NARC Benevolent Fund at the Howard Kaeding Classic luncheon. Miles McAtee's catering group knocked it out of the park (again) in the food department! ... Also, special thanks to Petaluma Speedway promoter Rick Faeth for his recent $500 donation to the NARC Benevolent Fund. ... The next weekend in Tulare, Dominic Scelzi outran DJ Netto and Shane Golobic to claim yet another "W" at Tulare! It might be time to install a dedicated parking space on the front straightaway for the Scelzi Enterprise #41, because he owns the Thunderbowl Raceway in 2021. Let's see if he can continue that success at the Trophy Cup. ... Billy Aton's first series win at Santa Maria was about as popular a win as we could possibly have! It made the best of a rough night. Everybody loves the guy and the effort he puts into racing on the NARC King of the West circuit. The win should be the first of many. It was a great ending to a drawn-out show that required a two-hour intermission after qualifying to make the track raceable. Most teams had already burned down three-tires in hot laps and qualifying, forcing the rework. The delay forced the cancellation of the highly anticipated wheelie contest. ... Scelzi attempted to reel Mr. Aton in the waning laps but couldn't make it happen. JJ Ringo nailed down a KWS career best third place finish after suffering a heat race crash. The Keller Motorsports team barely made the call for the feature, but their hard work paid off. Bud Kaeding's championship aspirations took a hit when he got reeled into a big first lap crash, effectively ending his night two caution flags later. A few pit peeps thought Kaeding benefitted from three yellows and should have been DQ'ed earlier. However, the NARC rulebook states that if there is a crash involving three or more cars on the first lap, no teams get charged with the yellow. It didn't matter because he finished 17th. Along those lines, the NARC-KWS rulebook has three-times the text than it had 20-years ago. THE LOUIE VERMEIL CLASSIC: The Fastest Four Days in Motorsports is the front end of six races in 11 days for the NARC King of the West Fujitsu Sprint Cars. The backend is the popular 13th Annual Louie Vermeil Classic at Chico on September 4-5th. Yes .., like you .., I almost said Calistoga, but the event was moved while the Napa Valley track works through its own set of problems. However, don't expect any drop off in enthusiasm or entertainment because the Labor Day weekend is packed with activities at the Silver Dollar Fairgrounds. Wine tasting, beer tasting, and of course, the Calistoga Speedway Hall of Fame Dinner on Friday night, September 3rd. Big money is on the line for both the King of the West and USAC/CRA series and this one also features lap money both nights. Go to www.LouieVermeilClassic.com for more info. If you need tickets, lock them in now by calling HMC Promotions at (916) 773-7223 Face it: The best way to thoroughly enjoy an entertaining Labor Day weekend is by attending the Louie Vermeil Classic! Make sure you bring a friend! #justsaying Coming to you live from Auburn, CA. See ya
