Prodigy Race Promotions on Sprint Car Insider- Driver Exclusive. VISALIA, Calif. (February 22, 2020) – > Cash Lovenburg closed out his 2019 Season with 10 wins, the Keller Auto Raceway Plaza Park title and a Clay Cup title to match.
Overall in 36 features in 2019 Lovenburg’s 10 wins accounts for 27% of his starts. With 32 podiums he finished first, second, or third in 88% of his races last season. In 34 out of 36 races he finished inside of the top five, totaling 94% of his races. Of his 10 wins five of them came at Lemoore Raceway, four of them at Keller Auto Raceway, and the biggest of his career came at Deming Speedway in Bellingham, Washington, on July 20th when he won the Clay Cup Nationals.
The first track that Lovenburg saw action during the 2019 season was Delta Speedway. Lovenburg Racing made their way up to Stockton to give the “World of Outlaw” non points Race a shot. Cash looked to be on his way to a win when he made a late race mistake that cost him the victory but earned his first of 32 podiums last season. At Delta he went on to race a total of six times earning three podiums, five top fives and six top tens. He just missed out on the podium when he finished fourth at Delta’s marquee event: Turkey Bowl XIX.
In the end he went on to be awarded the Passion for Racing award by the Panella Family of Delta Speedway. He put that passion on display many times in 2019, but perhaps no where more than his home track.
He started his title campaign at Keller Auto Raceway with a bang picking up the win on night one of the Outlaw Nationals last March. He did so in a statement drive, or run at redemption, just days after narrowly falling to second at Delta Speedway in his very first race of the year. He went on to win three more times but it was his incredible consistency that kept him in front of the pack in points all season long.
His remarkable consistency on his home track of Keller Auto Raceway speaks volumes. Not only did he earn the title at Keller Auto Raceday but he won four out of the eleven races totaling 36% of his attempts. On his way to a championship he also finished on the podium ten times at Plaza, or 90% of the races there. In addition to his ten podiums and four wins, he finished in the top five every time. He qualified fastest in seven of the 11 events and his season low qualifying performance matched his season low finish of fourth place.
While he won the title at Plaza, he won more races at Lemoore. After being in the hunt all season, Lovenburg fell short of the title by a slim 10 point margin. However, his consistency at Lemoore was almost just as dominant. Following three strait second place finishes Lovenburg drove the 21 into victory lane for the first time on May 11th. He went on to earn seven second place finishes at Lemoore, or 46% of the races in 2019. In total he earned 10 podiums equaling 66% of his attempts. He finished in the top five in 14 of the 15 races, a total of 93% and finished in the top ten in all 15 main events.
One of Cash Lovenburg’s most dominant performances of his career came at Lemoore Raceway last year at the curtain closing California Cup. He closed out his Jr Sprint career in the state of California with an exclamation point.
Here is an excerpt from the story following Cal Cup.
“However, in the Jr Sprint main on Saturday, the legend of Cash and Cup titles continued.
He started fourth. He found his way to the front. The rest is history.
Cash Lovenburg put on another display of dominance in Saturday nights Jr Sprint finale. There was no one in his league. He got out front and checked out, lapping up into the top five and finishing a full four seconds ahead of the runner up finisher. It was all Cash from flag to flag.
At the end of 25 laps Cash Lovenburg earned the California Cup crown and Championship belt to compliment his Clay Cup crown from back in July. Saturday’s win also propelled him into the double digits being his 10th win of the season. With one race remaining in 2019 Cash boasts a staggering 32 podiums in 36 features, with 10 wins, 34 top fives and a perfect 36 out of 36 top tens.”
– Lovenburg Dominates Cal Cup 11/12/19
Cash Lovenburg certainly came away from the California Cup with a ton of momentum following his performance. He was right where he needed to be before heading to the only race in the world that would be more prestigious than the race he won in July.
On a spur of the moment decision the Lovenburg’s packed up and headed for the Pacific Northwest last July before Cash came up aces.
Cash qualified 2nd quick on his prelim night giving him the fourth starting spot in the heat. He came from 4th to 1st convincingly to take the win and got to start the prelim Main from 12th. He charged from 12th to fourth, and earned enough points to be tied at High Points going into the final.
Lovenburg started the Clay Cup finale from the outside of the front row. He went on to dominate the feature and earn the biggest win of his career – The Clay Cup nationals, his first national title.
His Clay Cup run helped propel him to the title at Plaza and the wins on his way to closing out his Jr Sprint career. It was a remarkable season. His Championship, 10 wins, 32 podiums and 34 top fives, in just 36 races, left no question that Cash was ready for the transition into the 600 ranks.
After a brilliant debut in a 600 at the Cal Cup with a top five qualifying effort and a heat race victory Cash Lovenburg showed the field that he is ready to contend right out of the gate in 2020. This season, Cash Lovenburg is slated to run a full campaign in the Restricted 600 division at Keller Auto Raceway and Lemoore Raceway with select events on tap back at Delta Speedway as well.
Winning is addictive. Cash Lovenburg isn’t ready to give up that addiction. Look for the 21 of Lovenburg to be up front and vying for wins from the get-go in 2020.
