Van Dyke Motorsports and Buddy Kofoid Set Sights on a Chico/ Stockton Double Header This Weekend

By Gary Thomas

Stockton, CA – April 18, 2018…With the warmest weather of the year on deck this weekend Penngrove, CA’s Michael “Buddy” Kofoid and Van Dyke Motorsports will travel north to the Silver Dollar Speedway in Chico on Friday, followed by the $10,000-to-win Asparagus Cup at the Stockton Dirt Track this Saturday.

This past week saw the Van Dyke Motorsports/ Gary Silva Ranches No. 5H team also compete in Stockton with the Sprint Car Challenge Tour. After winning the B-main they were involved in a lap 10 accident during the A-main that ended their night prematurely.

This Friday will be a return trip to the Silver Dollar Speedway bullring for another round of weekly Winged 360 Sprint Car competition. During his most recent event in Chico, Kofoid charged from 14th to sixth in the feature. Saturday’s Asparagus Cup will then be the richest one-night stand for Winged 360’s in Northern California. The event hosted by the Stockton Dirt Track is held in conjunction with the annual San Joaquin Asparagus Festival, which also takes place at the fairgrounds.

“We look forward to hopefully having a good successful weekend in Chico and Stockton,” Kofoid commented. “Last Saturday didn’t go quite as planned, but I know that we have a lot of speed and now just have get qualified in the right spots and we’ll be okay. I’m excited to get back up to Chico on Friday and then on Saturday there’s a lot of money on the line at the Asparagus Cup in Stockton. I want to thank Harley Van Dyke, Gary Silva Ranches and everyone that supports this 5H team.”
