ARE YOU READY FOR RACE SEASON???

 We are! It’s a CLEAN SLATE as everyone has their shot at the Championships this coming Saturday. The Racers have been prepping their cars through the off-season and chomping at the bit to get back out on our tricky ¼ mile paved oval.

The quiet becomes the storm this Saturday as engines are fired, and it’s time for some door banging stock car racing at Willow Springs!

This Saturday April 15th! You don’t want to miss this!

 

THE Swift Napa Auto Parts “One – 50!” 


(powered by Swift Napa Autoparts of Ridgecrest)

       Danny Quinn’s So-Cal Enduro returns for their 3rd season at Willow Springs. Car counts continue to remain high and we are expecting some wild action for the big cash courtesy of Swift Napa Auto Parts. 
       The action was indeed Fast and Furious last season as this division produced some amazing racing. From a complete rollover, bangs the gear and keeps going, (to eventually win the Main Event) to one car spinning like a top down the front straight, we anticipate some more crazy racing this Saturday! This division definitely won the trophy for most cars up on two wheels in 2016! The So-Cal Enduro continues to produce the wildest action on every race night. Not to be missed at Willow Springs this Saturday!!!
HOOPERS REAR ENDS “ELITE DIVISION” 

       The field is wide open for a new Champion in the Elite Division as old favorites and new teams are locked and loaded. Car counts grew throughout the season with more Modifieds and one Truck testing our Late Models in our combined Elite Class. What will 2017 bring? You will have to be there this Saturday to find out.

 

THE PLATINUM JEWELRY & LOAN “STREET STOCKS” 

       Are you looking for #34 Tony Forfa and #25 Justin Good to battle again for this Championship? Or will the Iron Man #35 Bruce Secord school the “kids” this round? #57 Jerry Baxter tested very well on our practice day last weekend, and is ready to contend for the Championship as well. But #57x Ray Butler and #81 Kasey Parker have something to say about that too as both are eyeing the 2017 Championship in the “Platinum Jewelry and Loan” Street Stocks.

Who will it be? The war for the 2017 Championship begins this Saturday!

THE WAYNE & DAVE’S AUTOMOTIVE HOBBY STOCKS

       #44 Johnny Troesch will once again defend his 2016 Championship, but #71Michael Williams and dad #72 Terry Williams may just team up this year and keep that from happening. The grape vine has us hearing the Oatley family coming back this year, so this could get even more interesting come Opening Night this Saturday April 15th.

 

 

THE LUCAS OIL MINI STOCKS

       Our Mini-Stock field had some nice growth in 2017, and we expect that growth to continue. Nate VanDeventer moves up from So-Cal Enduro to the Mini Stock class in the very fast #68 from last season. The 2016 season saw some incredible paint trading for the lead all year long, and looking forward to new faces in this division as well. #19 Greg Didoha returns to defend his 2016 Championship, and when speaking with him at our cleanup day last weekend, was casual coy about his chances for a repeat. “I think we’ll be ok”. Didoha very quietly captured the point lead late in the season, and took the checkered on the Championship.
Our Lucas Oil Mini Stock division is going to be another to watch closely in 2017.

 

WAYNE & DAVES AUTOMOTIVE MINI DWARF’S   

      The first of our two new divisions for 2017 are the Wayne & Dave’s Automotive Mini-Dwarfs. The MD’s are broken down into Sr. and Jr. Don’t let these young kids fool you, they are doing lap times right up there with the big boys. Mini Dwarf is the starting point toward Bandolero, then Legend, as the steps toward higher divisions. These great kids will put on a terrific show for our Willow Springs fans in 2017! Who will be the FIRST EVER Willow Springs Mini Dwarf Champ?

 

 

51FIFTY ENERGY DRINK SPORT COMPACT

     The second of our two new permanent divisions are the 51Fifty Energy Sport Compacts. We were looking for a middle step from So-Cal Enduro toward the upper divisions and the SC fits that bill perfectly. Stil an extremely low budget division to run (cars complete can be built for right around $1,500), it’s a chance to run our full track without the chicane. We think it will be a quickly growing division with it’s higher speeds, yet still cost effective starting point for racers hitting the track for the first time.
FLAG POLE RACING  

       And if all that isn’t enough, we have Flag Pole racing BACK for this Saturday.

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 2017 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.
