99 Speedway is home sweet home for Holmes

Three-time NASCAR K&N Pro Series West champion Eric Holmes, of Escalon, grew up watching his father Steve Holmes compete against local legends such as Ken Boyd, David Philpott, Ron Strmiska and Harry Belletto at Stockton's 99 Speedway, so, naturally, the closure of the historic short-track at the end of the 2006 season was a very big disappointment to him.
