Trio Of California Ovals Next For Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series

Bryan Hulbert – MERCED, Cali. (March 1, 2020) Coming off a highly successful opening weekend in Arizona, the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network will look to carry that momentum into a weekend triple-header as the series makes it return to the state of California for the first time since 2012.

Kicking off Friday, March 6 the series will make its debut at Merced Speedway with the long-awaited return to Placerville Speedway on Saturday, March 7 before adding another new oval on Sunday, March 8 at Petaluma Speedway.

A stronghold for Sprint Car racing, some of the countries toughest teams and drivers call the golden state home. Seven previous events since 2011, California drivers have topped the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network three times.

Tim Kaeding won the series inaugural visit to the state on February 9, 2011, at Thunderbowl Raceway in Tulare. Racing for Jason Johnson, who was still racing in Australia, a then 18-year-old Kyle Larson followed that up on February 12, 2011, at Kings Speedway in Hanford. The most recent win went to Mason Moore on July 25, 2012, at Placerville Speedway.
