Gardner dominates, sweeps Amsoil USAC/CRA Sprint Car Series feature events at Cocopah Speedway
You can’t judge a book by its cover.
Apparently you can’t judge a race track by its video, either.
Just ask Damion Gardner.
Gardner, from Concord, Calif., had never been to Cocopah Speedway, so to prepare for the Amsoil USAC/CRA Sprint Car Series, two-night show he watched a lot of footage of other sprint car races on the Somerton oval. And he didn’t like what he saw, which left him a little on edge.
But the former series champion discovered his concerns were for naught as he found the oval very much to his liking and made his own highlight film, driving off with both the Friday and Saturday night feature event wins.
