“The 2nd Annual Pumpkin Smash” at Willow Springs!

Former Nascar West Series and two time Saugus Speedway Champion Sean Woodside tows up to compete against his God Father and current points leader Chris Peedan. Will the god son give him room, or make him race hard for his Championship? (we think #2)

Come on out to see what happens!!!!


“WE ARE Bristol in your Backyard”!

Green Flag at 3pm. Don’t Miss It!

The “Little Bristol of the West’s” last event of the season is also our BIGGEST event of the season!
50 lap Sport Compact Enduro sponsored by Napa Swift Auto Parts of Ridgecrest. $300 to the winner of this one courtesy of Napa. We have many new cars getting built for this event, and understand we have a two seater taking on the challenge as well. That is going to be one WILD RIDE!

And then, our Pumpkin Smash and Costume Contest for the kids, and finally our Skid Plates will end the day Halloween style “racing” across a truckload of Pumpkins! It’s going to be…….well……a HUGE mess to clean up!

Green Flag 3 PM
Point battles are still tight in a number of our divisions, and no Championship is a lock until the final checkered flag falls. Drivers needing points will have to pull out all the stops, and we have no doubt it will happen THIS SATURDAY.


#98 Chris Peedan is enjoying a decent lead going into our final race, but it’s not done yet. With an extra late model coming, anything can happen, and did back in September as the #98 suffered a motor failure. #30 John Penning is only 15 points back and waiting to strike if something does. #77 Alex Anderson is not out of the hunt yet either as he looks toward the Championship as well. Former Nascar West Series Champion and two time Saugus Speedway Champion Sean Woodside joins the field to throw in a little mystery, and anything can happen!!!

Will Peedan prevail? BE THERE TO FIND OUT!!!!



Unless something “crazy” happens, Justin Quinn will capture his first ever Championship this Saturday at Willow Springs. He had lots of “crazy” happen to him throughout the 2014 season, including breaking the car as it crossed the line for the checkers. One more lap, and it would have been a DNF and a much different final run for the season. But 2nd and 3rd in points are far from settled as Wolf Pack team mates Joseph Pablo and Brandon Fisk tussle for 2nd place in the division only 16 points apart. Don Oatley, deciding to help put as many cars on the track as possible in 2014 (as many as 4 earlier in the season) made that his priority over points racing. He is solidly in 4th spot with Richard Wolfe Sr. rounding out the top 5 going into the final race of the year.



#97 of Robert Heflin see’s the checkers in his future as the 2014 Champion, but it’s not over yet as #76 Richard Connors still has a shot if the right things happen. We are expecting an extra car or two to possibly mix this up. It’s exactly what Connors needs to have a shot at Heflin for top spot. Third position in points is all tied up with #11 Dale Connors and #00 Steve Patterson. These two will be racing hard for the podium spot at the banquet. Will it be #11 or #00? BE THERE TO SEE IT HAPPEN LIVE!!!



This little division started with one car only a few months ago, and is now nearing 15. Affordable, Easy, Simple, and FUN. For less than $1,000 you are on the track having a blast. And that has proved to be a great direction as we continue to grow this little gem of a division through each race. Find yourself a car, Dale Connors can install your safety bars extremely economically, a drivers suit, and you are good to go. We have to again thank Jim Cohan, Michael Atkinson, and Robert Rice at Irwindale Event Center for helping make this division possible.

For those that haven’t seen them, here’s the only way I can describe it…..

A Rolling Destruction Derby.

They are 1980’s and later front wheel drive cars, take the rear wheels off, bolt on a wide flat plate instead, put them in drive, and watch the mayhem begin. They spin, push, twirl, slide, and somehow manage to make something that kinda sorta looks like a race. These are cars are pure FUN, and our new teams plan to put on a show for YOU our fans! And to spice it up for Halloween, the Plates will be maneuvering around a truck load of Pumpkins!!!! These cars are already like driving on ice, imagine the kids putting down a slimy mess of Pumpkins to “help out” our drivers!….lol.


$10 Adults, Kids 8 and under are Free. Parking Free. Optional Tail Gate spots are only $5.

What are “Extreme Events”? It’s all the fun stuff.

Double Spin to Win- You must spin the car twice per lap.

Flag Pole Racing- Dodge Ball with cars as they maneuver around a pole trying to miss each other.

Gymkhana – Drag racing around pylons in elimination rounds.

Red Neck Tire Delivery Race- Be the fastest to deliver the tire to start/finish on your hood. The tire falls off and you are OUT!

2nd to the Line Wins!- Not as easy as it sounds, especially when your competitor is pushing you across the line!!



And coming in 2015


James Bond Spin

Chain Racing



A razor thin 5 points separate father and son in this division. Son Cory Carter leads father Jon by just a tad. We have four big events for this division this Saturday, so these two will be battling hard for the wins. And Brady Mertz is not far behind if one or both falter. Make it though all the events in one piece, and he has a shot to win at all as well. With Michael Forbes just out of the podium spot in 4th, he’s going to be right on Mertz’s tail trying to knock him out of the third spot. BE THERE TO SEE WHO TAKES THE CHAMPIONSHIP!!




We are going to invite the kids down to smash some Pumpkins, build some Pumpkin walls, and any other possible obstacle for our Skid Plate cars to smash to smithereens! The already slippery Plate cars will be sliding even more after the kids prepare the sloppy gooey mess for our drivers! It’s gonna be a BLAST!!!


DON’T FORGET- Green Flag at an early 3 pm!



The Speedway at Willow Springs International Raceway.

“WE ARE Bristol in your backyard”!




What do some Tail Gating? Throw your own personal party while watching the action for just $5 per vehicle. That is a feature of our 1/4 mile oval that you can not get just about anywhere else.
