This is the Statt Mann  Baby.  Time to Scatt a little bit.

You’ve heard me say over and over again that I think the World of Outlaws is the best show in racing.  But have you seen the King of the Wing sprint cars?

Irwindale FireworksSaturday night at Irwindale Speedway in Southern California King of the Wing put on a show with video game speed and car control. Even the guys at the back of the line were swapping spots.

No one’s afraid to go four wide into the turns and out-braking maneuvers saw guys getting passed in the turns all night.

Only the checkered flag stopped JoJo Helberg.  He was more than a half lap ahead of the field at the end.

Sprint car veteran Bobby Santos finally put away the pesky Sierra Jackson in the last ten turns or so.  And, yeah, you never have to wonder where Sierra Jackson is.  She’s normally in front battling for the win.

I can’t say enough of the car speed. Last year Irwindale’s track computer had to be reassured the lap speeds were accurate.  It laughed and threw them back at first.

The fans loved it.  The crowd was twice a normal NASCAR Saturday. Great show.
