Santa Clarita, Calif. – Twenty one year old up and coming female pro race driver Ariel Biggs will kick off her 2015-16 dirt series tour running the historic 75th Turkey Night Grand Prix at Perris Speedway on Thanksgiving Day in Perris, Calif.
Biggs has been relentlessly pursuing her dream of racing in NASCAR’s premier Sprint Cup Series, uprooting her team, Ariel Biggs Racing, from the Pacific Northwest to Santa Clarita in 2015 as she plans to run in both the Lucas Oil Modified Series and the Western States Midget Car Series.
“Kicking-off our 2016 Southern California series with the 75th Turkey Night Grand Prix will set the stage for next season and put our name in with the biggest names in West Coast dirt open-wheel racing,” said Biggs.
Turkey Night is one of the oldest running midget ca
r races in the world starting 33 cars on the massive half-mile track in Perris California. The 1100 pound cars will reach speeds up to, and possibly over 130 miles per hour. The race brings together some of the best race car drivers in the country, past participants include Parnelli Jones, Tony Stewart, and Kyle Larson.
“If you want to be the best you have to compete with the best” said Biggs. “That’s exactly what we want to accomplish with Turkey Night.”
Biggs is coming off a great 2015 season earning the first female feature win in the 69 year history of the Washington Midget Racing Association as well as earning her K&N West license, Biggs looks forward to what 2016 has to bring.
The Lucas Oil Modified series, which runs in 4 states on 8 tracks, and the Western States Midget Car Series races with some of the highest horsepower to weight ratio cars in the world.
