Justin Kawahata wins the first NCMA “Open Show” at Stockton 99 Speedway


NCMA hosted the Associations first ever “open show” where NCMA rules legal cars invited all non wing sprint cars to come run.  We had a good mix of racers with three of the NCMA legal two barrel cars and two injected cars and one with a four barrel.  Unfortunately two of our other NCMA legal cars weren’t able to make the race due to mechanical issues. 

We had really good weather last night and that continued until the evening when the temperature cooled off just enough to have some fast racing in the feature.  In the heat race Jeff Burrows #76 in his first start back with NCMA in a borrowed car from Steve Amador, led he field to the green.  He and Rob Hammond #17H had a battle for a couple laps until Denny Burrell #88 was able to underneath Burrows coming out of turn two and held the lead until the last corner of the last lap when Austin Carter #2 was able to get underneath Burrell for the win. 

In the feature six cars took the field.  Three NCMA regulars, two injected cars and one four barrel car.  Rob Hammond brought the field to the green and was able to jump out to a quick lead.  On lap three Burrell was able to get underneath Hammond in turn 2 and take the point and hold it until lap 13 when Carter made the pass.  Carter was on course for his first win with NCMA but Burrell and Kawahata were giving a good caces.  Kawa finally got under Burrell and set his sights on Carter.  On lap 17 he was able to get past Carter and take the lead and the checkers.  Congratulations to all the drivers and teams for coming together for this open show.  Finishing order: 1; Kawahata, 2; Carter, 3; Burrell, 4; Hammond, 5; Burrows, 6; Burchett
