Stockton, CA – March 2, 2015…In the brief two-year history of the Stockton Dirt Track no driver has taken the checkered flag more than Rutherford, California’s Rico Abreu. In fact, the 23-year-old wheel-man is the only competitor to win multiple main events at the San Joaquin County Fairgrounds facility, which opens the season on Saturday & Sunday March 21 & 22 with a World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series double header.
Despite competing in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East this year, Abreu will also have a full 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 March 21 & 22.
“We’ve had a lot of success at Stockton and have been really fast every time we’ve been there,” said Abreu, who picked up his first career World of Outlaws victory last season in Tulare. “I’m really excited about this season, having the chance to run with the NASCAR K&N East Series is an amazing 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 in my guys. We look forward to seeing all the fans and hope they will pack the grandstands like usual.” read more
