Other Updates:  Our current plan is to race on each date on the current schedule, even if it means changing venues.  Some adjustments have been made, but our plan is to have a full 2020 season.


  • The April 18th Irwindale Speedway race has been rescheduled for Saturday, December 19th, which will now be our 2020 championship finale.


  • The current plan to make up the March – Kern County Raceway event is a ‘Double Header” weekend at the “October Classic” at Kern.


  • Irwindale Speedway reported that they are solid for our July 18th


  • We are working with Las Vegas Motor Speedway on our November date, if that date moves to 11/14 from 11/21, does anyone have issue with the possible date change.


Thank you to all the teams for your support – we appreciate your commitment to the series.
