HOLTZ BACK AT KERNadmin
Hollywood Dan Holtz will be heading to Kern County Raceway on June 29th, for the Bulwark Protective Apparel 50/50 presented by Spears Manufacturing 50th Anniversary”. It will be Holtz second SPEARS SRL Southwest Tour Series start of the season, after debuting his new Hamke Race Cars & Parts Inc Ford at the Bullring @ Las Vegas Motor Speedway. Holtz and team struggled to find the handle on the former Donnie Wilson Racing straight-rail ride, but he is ready to go, after the team had the opportunity to go over the car over the last two months.
Holtz is a former Mesa Marin Super Late Model Champion, and a winner in both the NASCAR Southwest Tour and SPEARS SRL Southwest Tour Series’. Dan has two sixth place finishes in the SRL, at Kern County Raceway, but will be looking to turn around a recent stint of bad luck at the facility. Watch for Beverly Hills Rejuvenation Center driver to have a strong showing, and to be in contention for the $5,000 first place prize, thanks to the “Winner’s Bonus” sponsored by KHI Management.
The action for the weekend gets underway Friday night, with three practice sessions, for the SRL, beginning at 5:00 pm. The teams will qualify that evening at 10:00 pm. The Legends and “Spears Modified Series presented by Lucas Oil” will also practice.
On Saturday, June 29th, the Modifieds will have two practice sessions, with the Legends, Mini Dwarf’s and Jr. Mini Dwarfs also practicing. Spectator Gates open at 4:30 pm, with Qualifying for the SPEARS Modifieds and Legend cars scheduled for 5:30 pm, with the Dwarf Main Events to follow.
The On-Track Autograph Session begins at 6:15 pm, with Opening Ceremonies set for 6:45 pm. The first 50 lap segment for the “Bulwark ‘FR 50/50 presented by SPEARS Manufacturing 50th Anniversary”, featuring the SPEARS SRL Southwest Tour Series, is slated thereafter with the Modifieds, Legends and Modifieds running their features. The SALUTE TO AMERICA FIREWORKS SPECTACULAR is tentatively up next, with the 50 lap Segment #2, for the SPEARS SRL Southwest Tour Series, scheduled to round out the evenings activities.
