Kern County Hosting USAC/CRA Opener


BAKERSFIELD, Calif. – AMSOIL USAC/CRA Sprint Car Coordinator Tony Jones has announced that season opening races scheduled for March 12-13 have been moved to The Dirt Track at Kern County Raceway Park.

Originally scheduled for Canyon Speedway Park, local health department orders regarding the COVID-19 pandemic forced officials to cancel the Peoria, Ariz., shows. Once notified, Jones looked for options and the agreement was reached with Kern County Raceway Park management.

The March 12-13 shows will mark the first appearance of the non-winged 410 sprints at the third-mile facility. It is recommended that racers have their own tires and fuel for both nights of action.

Face coverings are requested for people on the grounds. Pit Passes are $40, fan passes are $25, and children 5 and under are free. The pit gates open at 1 p.m. and fan passes are available at 4 p.m. Camping is free.

The pit meeting is scheduled for 4:30 p.m., wheel pack at 5:30 p.m., and racing at 7 p.m.
