Pleasanton, Tx.,(March 24th, 2012) After a very successful opening night, driver, crew and fans returned for the second points nights of the season on the semi-banked, ¼ mile clay oval, south of San Antonio. Along with the normal cast of IMCA Modifieds and Southern Sportmods, Limited Late Models, Street and Pure Stocks, plus the Front Runners it was the Dwarf Car Racing Series of Texas making their first appearance of the year.
Earlier in the day, the racing community came together to help JL Wingo, owner of Bubbas Burgers & Fries, who lost his home after a lightning strike and fire during the early week storms. Charles Earnhardt helped spearhead a fundraising event hosted by Track Smack's, Dawn Murphy and Mike Haag at the restaurant, earlier in the day. Wingo, who has been a supporter and sponsor of racing, was overwhelmed by the turnout and support from the racing community.
The racing action was highlighted by several hard fought scraps for the lead in the IMCA Modifieds, Limited Late Models, Street Stock and Pure Stocks and capped off with a first ever main event win for one young IMCA Southern Sportmod driver.
