Pabst Blue Ribbon
Backs Winged World Series
MADERA, Calif. (Feb. 27, 2013) - Pabst Blue Ribbon signed on as title sponsor of the new Winged World Series based at the LoanMart Madera Speedway. The new series will be named the Pabst Blue Ribbon Winged World Series and features Winged Sprint cars racing against the Super Modifieds.
“We are very excited to have Pabst Blue Ribbon on board for the first year of this new series, our vision is big for this series and to have the support of a major brand like Pabst Blue Ribbon is a great start” Kenny Shepherd.
The first race of the new series is March 23; there are a total of six races in the series at the LoanMart Madera Speedway in 2013, March 23, May 4, June 8, July 13, August 10 and September 14. All events will include non-winged midget and non-winged spec sprint races. The September 14 event also features a multi-engine tractor pull, and an appearance by BIGFOOT the world famous monster truck.
Shepherd adds “ the idea for this series is something we have discussed for some time now, make the rules simple, competition close, the winged action great for the fans, and the payout big for the teams. We have been working close with several key engine builders and the idea is to make sure the 410, or 360 engine can be competitive in either a sprint car or a super.”
Plans for the series starting in 2014 include a five-six race series of events at the LoanMart Madera Speedway, with a select group of traveling events at other tracks to make up a nine race championship series. There is talk about a North/South Shootout two race event (Pavement Civil War) featuring the best of the Southwestern States, against the best of the Northwestern States as part of the series. The Pabst Blue Ribbon Winged World Series could even include a division of winged midgets in the traveling shows for 2014.
