I hope she didn’t today but at the same time if she did and it’s not bad, then at least you have an excuse. She should be able to run a mile, she’s so handy at six and a half.”TRAINER QUOTES JAMES CASSIDY, PRIZE EXHIBIT, WINNER: “I told the jock to sit close, about third or fourth, and he didn’t listen to me. I’m telling you the truth. After the race, I said to him, ‘What happened to third or fourth?’ He just looked at me and shrugged.“At Penn National, she got back too far and there was no pace. She came running but she had so much to do, she just couldn’t get there.” NOTES: Winning owner Deron Pearson who campaigns as DP Racing, is from Valencia.center_img -30-last_img read more

Annual tribute to Walt James set for this weekend

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREBlues bury Kings early with four first-period goals “I spent 10 years trying to find parts to it. It’s pretty authentic, same stuff we used to run in the old days.” The meet is sanctioned by the Western Racing Association, whose rules require drivers to be at least 35 years old and cars to be from before 1970, when sprint cars added safety roll cages. The average age of the drivers this weekend will be about 65, James said. James and one other driver are over 80. More than 70 cars from as far as Florida and Canada are expected, including classic Indianapolis-style roadsters, sprint cars, midgets and three-quarter midgets. James was inducted into the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame in Iowa in 1993 after spending a lifetime working for the betterment of open-wheel automobile racing. Besides being a driver, James took over the California Roadster Association and built it into a prestigious association that in the 1950s could boast that half the Indy 500 field was among its graduates. He was responsible for many safety features being required by the association, including roll cages, arm restraints and fire-retardant driver suits. ROSAMOND – Old racers in old race cars will slide around Willow Springs International Motorsports Park’s dirt oval this weekend in an annual tribute to a legendary auto racing organizer, track builder and driver. Open cockpit dirt track racers from the 1930s to the 1960s will come to the track near Rosamond for the 13th annual Tribute to Walt James, who ran the California Roadster – later Racing – Association and built racetracks from Gardena to Santa Clarita, including the three-eighth mile oval used this weekend. “It’s a big gathering for all the old-timers, all of us guys in our 80s,” said James, 82, a former Castaic resident who now lives in Acton. James won’t be driving Saturday because he will be busy running a water truck and grader grooming the dirt track. On Sunday, he will be driving a 1948 Ford flathead V-8 powered sprint car, which he found in pieces and restored. During that time James built several racetracks, some that went the way of modern development. Among those were the Western and Ascot speedways, both in Gardena, and the Whiteman Stadium in Pacoima. He built and managed the 600-acre Indian Dunes Motorcycle Park outside Valencia in the 1970s and 1980s. It was shut down in 1985, and the 27,000- home Newhall Ranch housing tract is planned there and on surrounding acreage. On Wednesday James was with Indy 500 winners Parnelli Jones and Jim Rathmann and other racers at the National Hot Rod Association’s Pomona museum to open a new exhibit on track roadsters. “I outlived all the famous guys so they have to keep asking me,” James joked about the museum event. The track opens today to early arrivals. There is no charge for overnight camping, but there are no water or sewer hookups for motor homes or other facilities. Saturday and Sunday pit passes are $15 each day, or $25 for both days. Children under age 8 are admitted free. Grandstand seating is limited, so organizers suggest that spectators bring chairs. Also featured during the weekend is a vintage car-parts swap meet. On Saturday evening at the track is a potluck meal. Everyone who attends must bring a dish to share. Willow Springs’ oval track is located on 70th Street West north of Rosamond Boulevard, about five miles west of the Antelope Valley Freeway.
