Joey won the two out of three match race with two wins on Saturday. Jimmy won on Friday.
Steckler's plan is to race in Salt Lake in just over a month before he heads back to Canada to race the rest of the season.

After a great weekend at Bakersfield, both Jimmy and Joey got invited to put on a few exhibition passes at Mopars at the Strip March 27-29 at Las Vegas. The cars will be on display at the East Side Cannery Casino for a concert with the band Queensryche on Friday then move out the Strip and set up and display both cars and 3 rounds of match racing Saturday. The members of the club that compete at these one off events are trying to be good ambassadors for Canadian racers, and generally just have a good time.
The event is an awesome deal and is the biggest Mopar event in North America.

Joey Steckler went to the third round in Pro 7.0 before lighting the red light against Jeff Sturgeon. Joey ran his best run of the weekend as well going 7.02, just .02 off the index. Too bad Joey, but a good weekend anyway. Jimmy Fersch was a bit late in his round two match-up and could not catch Terry Brewster.
Round one victory for Joey

Jimmy Fersch had the tough task of taking on the #1 qualifier Eily Stafford in round one. Jimmy (with crew chief Serge Dion) could not slow down the car any more than a 6.80 (on the 7.0 index) in either qualifier. At the starting line Stafford rolled the beams and Fersch got a freebie. He drove it out the back door and turned on the win light with a 6.90.
Jimmy takes on #17 qualifier Terry Brewster in round two.
Joey was very consistent in both qualifiers running in the mid 7.0's. He did the same in his round one win over Charles Ware. A 7.06 for Steckler to a 7.14 for Ware.
Joey has #4 qualifier Brian Darcy in round two
