We are very pleased to announce that K&N Engineering has joined The Speedway at Willow Springs as a marketing partner for the 2015 racing season. Please join us in welcoming them to our Family.
Attached are the 2015 Sport Compact rules for our new division. The SC’s will run with the Mini Stocks until the division is large enough to split off into it’s own race. Apologize for the long delay, and thank Danny Quinn and PJ Hernandez for working on the rule package, and Aaron Staudinger for the overview. We are very close to IMCA rules with this release.
Good morning Willow Springs Family. In addition to our already released schedule, we are adding the following dates for Open Testing, Poster/Marketing Day, and Track Spiff Up / Clean Up day. We are advancing our Tire Order date to March 2nd so they have arrived in plenty of time for Open Practice. That is your last day to get your order in with Rick Romo’s Racing Tires. That is this coming MONDAY. So please get them in if you haven’t.
March 21st. Poster/Marketing Day.
March 28th Open Practice All Divisions
April 4th Track Spiff Up Day.
Hope to announce a BBQ for all participants on April 4th spiff up day as well. I’ll know more in the next week or so.
In Advance, Thank You!!

This is a feature found at only a few race tracks in the entire Country. Throw your own personal party while watching the action at our ¼ mile for just $5 per vehicle. If you’d like a reserved Tail Gate spot for the season, they are only $80 for all 9 events. Arrive and leave when you please, the spot is yours on race days. Call (661) 945-2102 to reserve yours!!!
Have an RV? Stay the night for no extra charge (dry camp) and enjoy Sunday’s events as well. Hookups are available at the road course area for a small extra charge. Contact (661) 256-2471 for reservations.
Our 1/4 mile oval is part of the eight race tracks and 600 acres that make up Willow Springs International Raceway. Internationally recognized since 1953 as among the most prestigious in the World, and as of 1996, a California State Historical Landmark. Michael Andretti, Tommy Kendall, Derrick Cope, and Nigel Mansell all hold track records at the facility.
Here is a little more detail on two terrific features you cannot get anywhere else. Once you are in the front gates, your ticket is good for the entire weekend of racing for the road course events on the grounds, in addition to our Saturday night event. The 2.5 mile Fastest Road in the West which features dramatic elevation changes, and the infamous Turn 9 with speeds approaching 200 mph. The Streets of Willow Springs, and The Horse Thief Mile, also have events just about every weekend through the year. Hangout in the pits, talk with the drivers, and get some terrific pictures. Also, there is the WSIR gift shop and full snack bar open every weekend. Take a drive up to the Budweiser Balcony and enjoy an incredible view of the Antelope Valley as well.
The second feature of our 1/4 mile oval that you can not get just about anywhere else is Tail Gating. ($5 nominal charge per vehicle) Our guests can enjoy the action from the comfort of your car should you choose. Our prime spots are very limited, so get there early for the best locations. We also have a large amount of grandstand seating for the full experience as well with FREE parking.
Our Saturday Night divisions will feature the best stock car drivers in the region as they compete for the 2015 Championship. The 4 cylinder Mini-Stocks, The Hobby and Street Stocks, and our premier division Wayne and Dave’s Elite Division (Late Models, Modifieds, and Trucks) will be charging hard for the 2015 Championship. We had a number of new teams at practice, come out to see how they stack-up against our seasoned veterans. Get ready for some old school side by side stock car racing like it used to be. Full inverts, Restart Cone side by side yellow flag restarts, (where the drivers can pick inside or outside line).
Other fun events are in the planning stages, and will be announced throughout the season.
Adult admission $10, Kids 10 and under Free. Green Flag 6pm unless noted
Tailgating spots available for $5 first come first served. Season long Reserved Tailgate spots are available as well. Call (661) 945-2102 to reserve yours!!!
