Now in California with Southern Cal Region!
Lonnie Wheatley, TULSA, Okla. (December 15, 2010) – The 20th
season of American Sprint Car Series competition is just around the
corner and the Tulsa-based Sprint Car sanctioning body continues to
expand with the addition of the ASCS Southern California Region in
The ASCS Southern California Region will be one of at least two new
ASCS Regional tours for 2011 along with the Missouri-based ASCS
Warrior Region, which was acquired from the Winged Outlaw Warriors
upon the completion of the 2010 season.
The 2011 slate for the ASCS Southern California Region is currently
set to consist of approximately a dozen events.
A majority of the events will take place at Tulare’s
Thunderbowl Raceway and Hanford’s Kings Speedway, with Santa Maria
Speedway and Bakersfield Speedway likely hosting an event or two
apiece as well. A point fund
of at least $5,000 will be in place.
“The time is right for this, actually this is something that
probably should have been done 15 years ago,” Thunderbowl Raceway
promoter Steve Faria commented.
“It’s obvious that ASCS is the wave of the future, this will
be the start of big things in California.”
Gaskets and restrictors will be permitted for two years as the ASCS
head rules are phased in, with only the Brodix series head permitted
after the two-year phase-in period.
California race fans will get an early glance at ASCS action in
February, as the Lucas Oil ASCS presented by K&N Filters National
series slings the California clay for the first time with events at
Thunderbowl Raceway on Wednesday, February 9, and then Kings
Speedway on Saturday night, February 12.
The 2011 schedule for the ASCS Southern California Region will be
announce as soon as all dates are finalized.
Set for its 20th year of sanctioning Sprint Car racing,
the American Sprint Car Series brings the best of Sprint Car racing
to approximately 100 different tracks throughout 30 states and
Canada. Anchored by the
Lucas Oil Sprint Car Series presented by K&N Filters, ASCS also
consists of ten different Regions throughout the nation.
