BAKERSFIELD, CA. – On March 21st, in this Dodge Super Late Model named “Trampled Under Foot”. Cale Kanke heads to Kern County Raceway, after finishing 12th in the Spears SRL Southwest Tour Series season-opening “All-Star Showdown”, at Irwindale Speedway. The result was a momentum builder, after a lap one incident, not of his own doing, resulted in multiple trips to the infield for repairs. Cale rebounded with a strong finish in the talent-laden field.

With the help of Willie Allen, W.A.R. Shocks, Mike Dunkleberger, Hamke Race Cars & Parts Inc., and Rowdy Manufacturing the RPM Motorsports Team is ready to step into the top-10. Cale will look to improve upon his best Kern County Raceway finish of 11th. It will be his first start in the Winter Showdown, in his RPM-PSI sponsored, Dan Nikolai owned ride.
