Gary Jacob Memorial @ Kings Speedway

(SANTA MARIA, CA) – The C&D Bonding West Coast Late Model Shootout is set to make their first of three appearances at Hanford’s Kings Speedway on Saturday, March 29th for the Gary Jacob Memorial. The feature event will pay $2,000 to win and $400 to start. Also included in the Gary Jacob Memorial will be the USAC West Coast 360 Sprint Car Series.


Gary Jacob was a dedicated race reporter up until his passing in June of 2006. He covered every form of motorsports, dirt or asphalt, along the West Coast and even further logging as many as 60,000 miles a year on his car. As a writer his main goal was to get as many drivers publicity as he could, maximizing the names and numbers in an article as he can.


“Years ago I went to Arizona with Gary for the weekend,” commented series’ promoter Chris Kearns. “It was crazy. I don’t know when he slept. He was probably more dedicated to this sport than anyone I have ever met.”


The C&D Bonding West Coast Late Model Shootout began their season with a four-race opening swing through three states. Tony Toste comes out ahead of the point’s standings ahead of two-time champion Clay Daly, defending series and Gary Jacob Memorial Champion Steve Drake, former champion Mike Kirby and Rookie of the Year contender Cody Laney.
