Do you enjoy seeing cars going 144 miles per hour and making sharp curves at that speed?

Then head out to the Kern County Raceway Park Saturday and enjoy a night full of speed and adrenaline. That was the recommendation Friday from Brian Olsen, with SPEARS Southwest Tour Series, when he appeared on "First Look with Scott Cox."

Olsen talked about the upcoming race and invited the community to check it out.

"These kids are racing the 'whose who' racers and if they accomplish this, it's not just another win, it's something big and important," Olsen said.

Saturday's events will mark round eight of the 2013 SPEARS SRL Southwest Tour, with 25 teams entered for the 100-lap contest.

Gates open at 4 p.m. and opening ceremonies start at 7 p.m. Tickets are available online at www.kernraceway.com/tickets until 5 p.m. the day of the show, or get them at the gate.
