WEST MEMPHIS, Ark. — California sprint car driver Shane Golobic will head east this weekend to compete in the Rock ‘N Roll 50 Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series race at Riverside Int’l Speedway.
Golobic, who won his first World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series race earlier this month, will drive the familiar No. 92 sprint car owned by Bobby Sparks.
“I’ve never even met Shane (Golobic), but I’ve heard a lot of good things about him so I’m really looking forward to it,” Sparks commented.
With a new Jerry Russell chassis at the ready equipped with Weld Wheels and Pro Shocks with PBM Performance parts, Saturday’s outing at “The Ditch” will be the first of approximately 20-25 selected events this year for the Sparks No. 91.
While several drivers may take the seat of the Sparks machine over the course of the year dependent upon various schedules, Golobic will be the first to take aim at victory lane.
“I hear it’s a pretty tight little place, it sounds like something pretty similar to what I’m used to in California,” Golobic explained. “Bobby has good stuff and I think it’ll be my kind of race track. I can’t wait for Saturday.”
