Abreu wins Friday portion of the Murphy with SCCT


Rutherford's Rico Abreu topped a stout 41-car field on Friday night with the Sprint Car Challenge Tour/ Kings of Thunder Winged 360's at Thunderbowl Raceway. It marked the second time in three years that Abreu captured the SCCT portion of the Peter Murphy Classic. Dominic Scelzi, Kyle Hirst, D.j. Netto and Shane Golobic rounded out the top-five.

With Saturday's finale falling victim to rain the next Sprint Car Challenge Tour presented by Elk Grove Ford and Abreu Vineyards event will take place on Saturday June 15 at Keller Auto Speedway at Kings Fairgrounds in Hanford. Once again the rescheduled Peter Murphy Classic date for June 8 will not be sanctioned by SCCT due to weekly events taking place at Placerville and Petaluma. The Winged 360 Sprint Car portion of the rescheduled date will be sanctioned by the Kings of Thunder 360's.
