Qualifying Results and Starting Lineups – River Ranger 75

Danny Vandoorne rebounded from a disappointing showing at Watermelon Capital Speedway, taking the pole for the River Ranger 75 at Kern County Raceway Park (CA). The American Formula 1 expatriate-turned-stock car racer clocked in at 18.171 seconds around the Bakersfield half-mile to set the fastest lap in the qualifying session.

Joining Vandoorne on the front row will be Louisiana’s Tilly Tamburlaine. Leonid Yakubovich secured his first A-Main start of the season by qualifying third, followed by Harvey Bakerfield and Chester Curd, another driver who missed the Cordele A-Main.

Just as several drivers made up for poor showings in Georgia, there are some prominent figures from the Short Track Simulation Circuit’s inaugural event will be forced to race their way into the show. Despite 28 drivers securing spots in the 36-car A-Main field, five of the last race’s top-ten finishers are in tomorrow’s B-Main.

Joe Trickle finished fourth at Cordele, but will start on the pole for the B-Main.  Jack Stevens, runner-up in the Winter Warmup 90, will start 13th in the 17-car B-Main field, competing for eight transfer spots.  Kevin Keselowski, Jean Girard, and Duff Wallace are also in the B-Main roster after top-ten runs in Georgia.

  1. This was a horrible qualifying performance for Alex Light who seen in pit road with a dejected look on his face, refusing to respond to the media.

  2. What a poor qualifying effort by Lake. Really going to claw at the pack to finish top 10 this race. Hopefully everything goes smooth.
