BAKERSFIELD, Ca. — The 2013 schedule for The West’s Fastest 1/3 Mile High Banked Clay Oval Bakersfield Speedway has been released and includes 31 weeks of Budweiser Weekly Racing Series action.

The track’s always competitive weekly divisions begin their race for the Budweiser Weekly Racing Series Division Championships on Saturday March 2nd and end with the final point’s race of the season on Saturday September 28th.

During the 31 weeks of action the speedway will feature a similar weekly schedule that was utilized during the 2012 season with the exception of a few additions to 2013. Fans and competitors alike were thrilled with the schedule and have asked to keep it coming in 2013. “We have grown to find what our fans like to see each Saturday night and that’s what I want to give them again this year” stated track owner Scott Schweitzer who just finished his 10th year of owning the historic west coast racing facility.

This year’s Budweiser Weekly Racing Series division line-up will once again include the IMCA Modifieds, IMCA Northern Sport Mods, Hobby Stocks, American Stocks, Mini Stocks and Mini Dwarfs. Along with the weekly racing action the speedway will also host Late Models, 360 Sprint Cars, USAC Midgets, Ignite Focus Midgets, Super Stocks, NMRA Midgets, CA Lightning Sprints, LMods, CDCRA Dwarf Cars and the Hard Tops.
