Bakersfield, CA – 2022 Spears Pro Late Model Series presented by Sigma Performance Services champion Seth Wise will make his first start in the Spears SRL Southwest Tour Series in the “8th Annual Winter Showdown 135” at Kern County Raceway Park. Wise will perform double duty this weekend, as he will also participate in the “Winter Showdown 60” for the Pro Late Models. Wise will be behind the wheel of a Scott Sanchez Super Late Model, which has seen drivers such as Jake Bollman Racing and Dylan Cappello behind the wheel with good success.
It has been a long-time goal for the three-time winner in the Spears Pro Late Models to climb behind the wheel of a Spears Southwest Tour Super Late Model. Wise’s first series start could be at no better place than his home track, in Bakersfield, CA. It was the site of his first series victory in the Pro Late Models and his only track to date with multiple wins. For Wise, it could be the perfect opportunity.
“It’s a dream come true to be making my first start in a Super Late”, Wise exclaimed! “It’s something I’ve really been looking forward to and worked hard for. It’s going to be at our hometown track at the “Winter Showdown”, which is going to make it even more special.”
Wise is assisted by; Ted Hill at Support Product Services and Free-Flow Engine Coolers, Christian Curutchague at Curutchague Farms, Dave Reeves at Reeves Complete Automotive, Darrell Abbott at Destined4Destruction, David Nava Mulcahy at Salted Metals Architectural Metals, Sully and Son Hydraulics, Beau Braisher at Bakersfield Pool Fence, and The Soda Crackers.
The “8th Annual Winter Showdown 135” will feature a Fireworks Spectacular, Live Music, Camping, Vendors, and the Super Late Models of the Spears SRL Southwest Tour Series. The Spears Modified Series and the Spears Pro Late Models presented by Sigma Performance Services will also join the action.
