With just three events left in the season at Houston Motorsports Park, the stakes could not be higher as track championships are there for the taking in the NASCAR BWFS 360 Truck and NASCAR Stock Car classes.
Drivers in both series will have a chance to take two-steps closer to winning their respective title when they do battle Saturday, Sept. 29, on the 3/8-mile high-banked paved oval on BWFS Industries NASCAR Night.
It will be the final double feature night of the season for the NASCAR Fiesta Modified class, while it will be the first of three straight for the NASCAR BWFS 360 Truck and NASCAR Stock Car classes.
And that means anything can happen.
“With track championships still in play, I expect Saturday night to be one of the very best nights of racing we have had here all season,” said John Mandabach, vice president and general manager of Houston Motorsports Park. “I expect nothing less than hard, super aggressive, racing throughout each feature race. There is not many chances left if you want to be your series champion for 2012.”
While Joe Aramendia has an insurmountable lead in the NASCAR Fiesta Modifieds – 133 point lead on Brad Queen, the same cannot be said for the NASCAR BWFS 360 Truck and NASCAR Stock Car classes.
“Our truck and stock car classes are close enough that we could have new points leaders when Saturday night is over,” Mandabach said. “I'm sure Mason and David will have something to say about that though.”
Tickets are available for $12 at the track for adults and children 12 and under still free. And, as always, there will be $1 hot dogs, $1 cokes and $1 beer.
Gates open at 4 p.m. Racing, which will also feature Ecostock and NASKarts, is set to begin at 6 p.m.
