KERN TRACK REVS UP WITH PRESEASON RACES.

Byline: Kathy Orton Daily News Staff Writer

For those who have been suffering racing withdrawals, Kern County Raceway has an antidote.

KCR will hold a preseason teaser - a taste of what is to come - today with its inaugural figure-eight and train races. Gates will open at 2 p.m. with qualifying at 5 p.m. and racing at 7 p.m. There is an $8 admission fee for adults and a $3 fee for children 6 to 12. Children younger than 6 are admitted free of charge.

This will be the first season that KCR will offer figure-eight and train racing, which were two of the more popular events at the defunct Saugus Speedway. To hold the races, KCR had to modify its track by cutting back on the curving and adding more pavement to allow extra room for the drivers to maneuver.

Because of these modifications, KCR wanted the drivers to try out the refurbished track under race conditions before the regular season starts in three weeks.

As an incentive, KCR is offering $500 to tonight's winners, a little premium to thank them for participating.

Then there will be no racing on the weekends of April 6, 13 and 20 - to give drivers time to tune and test their cars.

Opening night for the season will be April 27. Double points will be awarded in all divisions: late models, street stock, mini stock, dwarf cars, fox stock and train racing. Racing will continue throughout the summer and into the fall.
