LAS VEGAS (March 8, 2018) – Greg Wilson is heading to Thunderbowl Raceway this weekend for a World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series doubleheader.
The two-day show on Friday and Saturday in Tulare, Calif., will mark the first of three straight weekends Wilson and his Hercules Tires, DNC Hydraulics, Ohio Logistics and Gear Alloy Wheels sponsored team will compete in California.
“We only make it out here to the West Coast twice a year so it’s always fun to see our fans as well as some of the Hercules Tires vendors,” he said. “The weather is typically nice so it makes for a good trip as long as we’re learning at the track.”
Wilson has done just that in his limited starts at Thunderbowl Raceway, where he has improved during each of his three races the last two seasons. He posted a career-best result during his most recent outing.
“Thunderbowl Raceway can be an elbows-up type of track,” he said. “A lot of times you’ve got to be up against the fence and bouncing through holes. It definitely takes some experience to master maneuvering through there without tearing up the race car.”
Wilson invaded the FVP Outlaw Showdown last Wednesday and Thursday at The Dirt Track at Las Vegas.
“Qualifying is important at every show and you can get behind really quickly on big, half-mile tracks when you don’t qualify toward the front of the field,” he said. “That was our challenge last week, but we learned a couple of things and took some good notes out of Las Vegas.”
Last Saturday’s show at Perris Auto Speedway in Perris, Calif., rained out.
