Spangler will bring his Retro Custom Metals, Spangler Racing, RONS REAR ENDS Chevrolet to Kern County Racewaytenth in series points, after missing the first event at Kern County Raceway,
October 28th will be Keith’s 86th career start in the SRL, and seventh at Kern County Raceway. Spangler is currently third in career top 10’s, with 54, which now exceeds his 52 top 10’s in the former NASCAR Featherlite Southwest Tour Series.
Spangler has been racing for 40 years now. and is a well respected racer, who gets the most out of his equipment. The 2017 season has been a difficult one at times for Keith. He has had an uncharacteristic three DNF’s on the season, but has been the Rockwell Time Hard Charger Award winner in each event he has finished. His DNF’s have all been mechanical in nature, but he hopes those issues are sorted out. His last outing, at Tucson Speedway, saw him advance from 17th to 11th, by lap 28. when an Upper A arm failed.
Spangler will arrive at Kern County Raceway with hopes of his second top five finish of the season after an extremely strong run at Madera. Keith has a best finish of sixth at Kern, but would love nothing more than to improve upon that finish.
In addition to his sponsors, Spangler is very thankful for the volunteer help he receives from crewmen Dan, Gary, Dana and David Mulcahy(Homie).
