The California Asphalt Super Modifieds will headline the action this Saturday night at Mesa Marin Raceway in the 24th annual Labor Day Classic, presented by the Kern County Farm Bureau. A record number of Super Modifieds are expected as the C.A.M. series and the S.R.L. (Super Modified Racing League) has formed an alliance with both series competing together at Mesa Marin.

Jimmy Tartagila of Reedley leads the 2001 California Asphalt Super Modifieds points series with 370 over Darrell Herzog of Madera and Billy Wilkers 292 and 271 respectively. Local driver David Tuey will be competing Saturday night in his newly completed winged racer. Jim Birges of Fresno and Dale Lamborne from Carson City, NV will be a couple of the top drivers carrying the S.R.L. banner Saturday night.

In NASCAR Limited Late Model competition, the focus is on the championship battle between points leaders Gene Fife and Brian Richardson. With just three main events left in the 2001 series, nine points separate the two drivers heading into Saturday's twin main events. A number of new cars and drivers are scheduled to compete in this fast growing race division including NASCAR Late Model standout Rick Grissom.

Point leader Josh Horn leads J.R. Garcia, Jeff Beard and the rest of the Street Stock field into Saturday night's event. The Bakersfield City Fire Department team holds a slim lead of two points over the California Highway Patrol in the race for the 911 Race for Youth Series championship.

Gates open at 5pm, with racing at 7:30pm. For more information please call 366-5711.
