Jensen masterful in feature victory

  BY STEPHEN LYNCH Special to The Californian   Lee Jensen’s biggest challenge wasn’t finding enough speed to win the Super Street feature Saturday night at Bakersfield Speedway.   It was trying to hold off the cars chasing him as he spent much of the 25-lap race weaving through and around lapped traffic.   Jensen did it masterfully, setting himself up to be able to out-duel Brian Shepherd for the victory in a green-white-checkered finish.   “This thing is just fast, there’s no two ways about it,” Jensen [...]

Early Start Times for Mini Dwarfs this Saturday

This weekend’s Mini dwarf heats will start at 4:30pm to help with the busy night of activities planned. The mini dwarf drivers will be doing a pass the helmet for donations for Make-A-Wish, and doing the early start again will help free the kids up later in the night for this.


Drivers at Bakersfield Speedway will be “Racing For Wishes” to raise money to grant wishes for sick kids in Kern County.

Pounds wins shortened IMCA Modifieds race at Bakersfield Speedway

  BY MIKE GRIFFITH Californian staff writer mgriffith@bakersfield.com   As the night wore on at Bakersfield Speedway on Saturday, one thing became painfully apparent: nothing was going smoothly. Caution flags and race-halting red flags ate up time and by the time the featured event — a 25-lap IMCA Modified race — took the to the track the 11-o’clock curfew was looming. When that race got off to the same sort of “start” as the earlier American Stock, Sports Mod and Hobby Stock [...]
