Stockton, CA – May 2, 2016…After being silent since the World of Outlaws weekend in mid-March the Stockton Dirt Track will finally return to life on Saturday May 21, with the King of the West 410 Sprint Car Series & Wingless Sprints presented by Hunt Magnetos invading the San Joaquin County Fairgrounds.
The night of action pays honor to the legendary LeRoy Van Conett, who was born in Stockton and would go on to become one of the very best to ever sit behind the wheel of a Sprint Car in California.
The driver simply known as the “Dragon from Galt” is the all-time leader in career wins at the famed Calistoga Speedway half-mile, with 31 victories to his credit. He captured the track title seven-times in his illustrious career.
Van Conett also claimed 65 career wins with the Northern Auto Racing Club and eight series titles, both of which rank second to only Campbell’s Brent Kaeding. Read More!
