Spokane, WA (9-25-07) - As the 2007 Inland
Northwest Sprint Car Association (INSCA) season draws to a close,
the Championship points battle is tight heading into the final race
this Saturday night at Stateline Speedway in Post Falls, Idaho. 2005
INSCA Rookie of the Year, Tony Berry, holds a 22 point advantage
over Spokane's Justin Popple who is competing in his first full
season of pavement sprint car racing.
2007 INSCA season, brought to you by Mission Foods, has seen several
different faces in victory lane, but the one seen most often has
been sprint car legend, Rick Brown. Brown has been undefeated when
he has traveled to INSCA events, winning at both Spokane Raceway
Park and Stateline Speedway.
One driver that
hasn't visited victory lane yet in the 2007 campaign is the current
points leader, Berry. "Our year has been a model of
consistency; that being said we show up each week to win. It'd be
great to finish off the season for our sponsors, ACRAnet, Sign
Service, CDA Gold Carts and Duncan Marine with a win this
Saturday,"commented the 23 year old driver.
season includes one trip to victory lane which happened earlier in
the season at Stateline Speedway, the site of the last race of the
year which is encouraging to Popple, "We really weren't at our
best up at the half-mile (Spokane Raceway Park), but I am excited
that we can head into the final race of the year with a shot at the
championship at a track that I think we're figuring out more and
more each time we visit."
Third place man
in the points is also the leading Rookie of the Year contender,
16-year old Cole Tupling. The second generation driver improved his
points position after a terrific second place finish to Rick Brown
at the series' last event at Spokane Raceway Park. "SRP is a
lot of a fun because of the high-speeds and it's kind of
disappointing that the season is coming to an end right now because
we're really starting to run well. For our first year of racing, our
family race team couldn't be any happier with our performance."
Come cheer on
the exciting action of the Inland Northwest Sprint Car Association
one final time in 2007 this Saturday night under the lights at
Stateline Speedway in Post Falls, Idaho. For more information visit
