The entry list for the 5th Annual SRL Winter Showdown at Kern County Raceway Park (CA) continues to grow as the field gets set to compete in just over two weeks. With 42 Super Late Model drivers set to head to Bakersfield, the race is shaping up to be a preverbial who’s who of the Super Late Model ranks.
The latest to join the field include none other than NASCAR K&N Pro Series competitor Derek Kraus. The Stratford, Wisconsin native will look to break into the top five after finishing sixth in last year’s running of the $30,000-to-win event.
No stranger to travel, fellow Wisconsonite Brad Kossow will also be making the trip to sunny Southern California. Kossow finished 17th in the Red Eye 50/50 Super Late Model kickoff event at New Smyrna Speedway in early January.
Snohomish, Washington’s Jason Fraser will join the contingent headed south from the Pacific Northwest, a list that already includes 2018 NASCAR Whelen All-American Series Washington State Champion Doni Wanat and Tyler Tanner. Fraser will try to do something that has never been accomplished by a Northwestern based driver: win the Winter Showdown.
California driver John Moore enters the Winter Showdown with two top-15 finishes to his credit already. His son Cole, the 2018 SPEARS SRL Southwest Tour Series Rookie of the Year, will be in tow looking to improve upon his 19th-place finish in the 2017 edition of the Showdown.
Northern California racer’s Tracy Bolin and 2015 SPEARS SRL Southwest Tour Series Champion Jacob Gomes have each thrown their hats in the ring as well. This will be Bolin’s third start in the Winter Showdown and Gomes’ fourth.
The 5th Annual Winter Showdown will be held February 1-2, 2019 at Kern County Raceway Park in Bakersfield, California. Tickets for the event can be purchased by clicking here.
