The ARCA OK Tire Sportsman Series heads to Thunder Mountain Raceway in Williams Lake for race two next Saturday May 26. The three eighths egg shaped oval always provides fans and racers with guaranteed excitement. The track is one of the fastest short tracks in the west and with the two distinctly different corners provides a challenge to racers. “It is one of those tracks you have to be passively aggressive on” says one seasoned racer. “You have to race the track and the other competitors. One mistake and the track will beat you, the walls are tight and there is little room for error.”  The championship contenders have already emerged. Two time ARCA champ Mark Berriau sits only four points out of the top spot. Top three contenders from 2011 has young guns Ian Graham and Ryley Seibert in the cat bird seat. Regular touring racers Trevor Adelman, Logan Jewel, and Dave Olson stand a great chance of moving into the top five. 2011 WCSS race winner Sarah Cornett-Ching needs a good run to battle into the points challenge. The rookie battle heats up as all three rookies plan to make the trip to the lake. Jeff Cameron, Cass Walker and Barry Clayton are separated by only thirteen points.  ARCA welcomes all sportsman racers to come on out and enjoy the fun.  See you at the track.
