Bakersfield Speedway Announces 2018 Event Schedule
BAKERSFIELD, Ca. (January 12, 2018) – The Bakersfield Speedway is proud to announce their 2018 event schedule. The historic Bakersfield Speedway is a one third mile high banked clay oval that has been home to auto racing in Bakersfield, CA since May of 1946.
As Bakersfield’s premier offering for professional dirt track auto racing waves the green flag for its 2018 season giving the Bakersfield Speedway the recognition of being one of the oldest continuous operating racing facilities on the West Coast. A total of 32 exciting events will form the 2018 schedule that will stretch from early March into November. Throughout the season, 20 different racing divisions will compete on the always eventful bullring speedway that will pride itself on promoting affordable, quality, family entertainment every Saturday night.
The 2018 racing season will begin on Saturday, March 3rd as the Budweiser Championship Series will open its season campaign at Bakersfield Speedway. This championship series is comprised of the nine house divisions that will compete in approximately fifteen events each at the historic California dirt track this season.
Eleven different guest divisions are slated to appear throughout the season. Topping the list of special guests will be the World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series that will make a stop Saturday March 24th. The very popular sprint car series was last seen at the Bakersfield Speedway in April of 2016. The USAC Western States Midgets and National Midgets will make multiple appearances this season along with the USAC 360 Non-Wing Sprints. WRS Winged Sprints, CA Lightning Sprints, NMRA ¾ Midgets, Western Pro Stocks, Bakersfield Hard Tops and the Dirt Late Models will all again be competing multiple times around the 1/3 Mile High Banked Clay Oval in 2018. You will also see a brand-new division stopping at the Bakersfield Speedway in 2018. The newly developed Mini Mods are slated for six stops which should be a good stepping stone to the young kid’s program of the schedule.
“Our goal in 2018 is to provide a racing schedule that will give our fans a wide range of high quality racing entertainment at the Bakersfield Speedway, and we are confident we reached that goal with our 2018 event schedule. We feel that in 2018 we need to make every Saturday night family fun entertainment to go along with the great racing we have always provided. The result is a fun filled 2018 schedule of racing and family entertainment” stated owner Scott Schweitzer.
