The World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series' inaugural event last season at the Stockton Dirt Track at California's San Joaquin Fairgrounds was one of the highlights of 2013, this year expectations are even greater for the FVP Western Spring Shootout on Saturday, March 22, at the 3/8-mile dirt oval.
Three California natives shared the lead - Paul McMahan, Tim Kaeding and Kyle Larson - before Larson finally earned the victory in front of the sellout crowd. McMahan and Kaeding will be eager to notch a victory this time around.
Adding to the anticipation for this event is new title sponsor FVP, a leading provider of OE-quality aftermarket automotive parts.
"FVP is passionate about sprint car racing and after seeing how big last year's event was at Stockton we had to partner with the World of Outlaws STP Sprint Cars this year," FVP's Joel Quetschenbach said. "We can't wait to see the packed grandstands once again. The FVP Western Spring Shootout is going to be a huge event and we are excited to be part of it."
Steve Kinser will try to add Stockton to the list of tracks where he's earned victories in his legendary career. Kinser's "Salute to the King" tour will mark his final season chasing a 21st World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series championship, and a win at Stockton would no doubt go a long way toward being a title contender as the season takes shape.
