Follow Us


For Immediate Release


Are you ready Willow Springs???  It’s been a long off season, but that’s about to change as we are one week away until the 2018 Season Kick Off on April 14th. 

So many questions going into 2018 as we come off the most exciting points battles we’ve seen in years. The “Hoopers Rear Ends” Elite Division was decided by ONE single point between Tony Forfa IV and Logan Mainella. The Platinum Jewelry & Loan Street Stocks by just 10 between Justin Good and Tony Forfa IV. Exciting down to the wire battles between Johnny Troesch and Michael Williams for the Hobby Stock Championship were a thrill to watch unfold. Just 3 tiny points was the deciding factor in our Lucas Oil Mini Stocks between Cary Cecil and Greg Didoha……pins and needles! 

What will 2018 bring? ………You’ll have to be there next Saturday April 14th to see it LIVE….in person! 

Who will repeat? 

Who will “Make a Statement” 

Who will be the “Contenders”. 

It will all unfold next Saturday April 14th LIVE at The Speedway at Willow Springs. 

What’s New @ Willow Springs? 

Hot Stocks – A new division for dirt style cars out of Bakersfield, Perris, Ventura, Barona, and Santa Maria, many for their first ever time on asphalt. 

INEX  –  We are very happy to announce we will be an INEX sanctioned track for the 2018 season. Both Legends and Bandolero’s can come earn National Points throughout the season. We are expecting a healthy turnout of Bando’s coming out of the Bakersfield area, and looking for some exciting racing from tomorrow’s future racing stars! 

National Enduro Event –  This is gonna be BIG! We are thrilled to announce a $4,000 to win 300 Lap Enduro scheduled for August 11. 

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.

This is gonna be fun!
