Two-time Chili Bowl Nationals champion Rico Abreu looks for more Stockton glory
at the FVP Western Spring Shootout March 18 & 19

Stockton, CA – February 29, 2016…In the brief history of the Stockton Dirt Track no driver has taken the checkered flag more than Rutherford’s Rico Abreu, who looks to defend his win from a year ago at the upcoming FVP Western Spring Shootout on Friday & Saturday March 18 & 19.
Despite competing in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series this year, Abreu will also have a healthy slate of open wheel racing on his plate, which includes a visit to the Stockton Dirt Track to take on the World of Outlaws in the FVP Western Spring Shootout. The 24-year-old will be pulling double duty at the event, also competing aboard a Winged 360 Sprint Car both nights on March 18 & 19.
“We’ve had a lot of success at Stockton,” said Abreu, who has three career World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series wins. “I’m really excited about this season, having the chance to run with the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series is an outstanding opportunity, but still running so much on the dirt is a good thing as well. Hopefully we will have a good weekend in Stockton. It’s never easy running against the Outlaws, but I definitely have a lot of confidence knowing that we won this race last year. We look forward to seeing all the fans and hope they will pack the grandstands like usual.” Read More!
