LATE MODEL TRUCK SERIES to invade Willow Springs for THE FIRST TIME EVER…..THIS SATURDAY OCTOBER 13TH!
We are proud to announce that we will be the first ever Touring Track for the new “Late Model Truck Series” on October 13th, 2018. We met Gary Wyatt and Mike Reifler at the Promoters Conference last year in Reno, and we were quick to say……ABSOLUTELY…BRING IT!
These Trucks from the southwest region have a long history in short track racing. The Speed Truck series originated back in 1997, under the American Speed Association (ASA.) At one time, MechanixWear gloves sponsored the class. As a touring series, the Trucks raced up to 10 different tracks in one season, traveling through California, Arizona, and Nevada.
Today the new LMTS Truck Series draws from its early origins with innovations in short track racing. The LMTS Truck Series uses a full-tube chassis with a 330-horsepower sealed V-8 spec engine.They have a two-speed direct drive transmission, with a clutch pedal dump valve coupled to an aluminum quick-change rear end. The trucks sport replica fiberglass bodies of the Chevrolet S-10, Chevrolet Colorado, Dodge Dakota, Ford Ranger and Toyota Tacoma. Speeds can reach up to 150-mph at some of the larger tracks.
The Trucks go to local tracks ranging from small 1/4-mile tracks to big 1/2-mile ovals, along with 1.7 and 2.1-mile road courses. Although the ASA Truck series disbanded in 2013, the remaining Trucks are regrouping and race as the Late Model Truck Series.
We are very excited to have the LMTS race for our Willow Springs fans this Saturday October 13th!
We Can’t Wait!!!

National Enduro Event – This is gonna be BIG! We are thrilled to announce a $4,000 to win 300 Lap Enduro scheduled for November 10th, 2018.
We are receiving calls from as far away as Washington for details on what is destined to be a landmark event for Willow Springs. Build a car for $1,000, race for $4,000. Racing doesn’t see math like that every day!…;). And, we are hoping those cars are added to our Enduro and Sport Compact divisions both before and after the 4K event adding to our competitor levels as an added bonus. We are starting as many cars as show up. If it’s 125, then all 125 start the race.

THE SPEEDWAY AT WILLOW SPRINGS
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. ($10 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 2018 Championship. 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). We are gonna change it up and have some fun!
One low price $10 ticket buys you an entire weekend of AWESOME racing action. There is racing all over the facility every weekend. Come early and enjoy the road courses, then come on up to us at the ¼ mile (North end of the property) for a full night of door slamming stock car racing action on our ¼ mile. Even get yourself a tail gate spot for a nominal $10 more and enjoy the action right from your vehicle. It’s like an old school Drive in Movie! Bring your own food and drink and have a great time! Still haven’t had enough? Come back Sunday for even MORE.
A full weekend of racing for only $10! There is no better BARGAIN in the AV this weekend.
Adult admission $10, Kids 10 and under Free.
