(8/20/22) Sacramento, CA … The Northern Auto Racing Club and Keller Auto Speedway announced that the Anthony Simone Classic has been rescheduled for Friday, October 14th. The original sprint car race date in April was cancelled due to high wind advisories in the Hanford, CA area.
The Anthony Simone Classic will now be part of a huge NARC Fujitsu General 410 Sprint Car Series weekend that also features the inaugural Dennis Roth Classic at the Tulare Thunderbowl Raceway on Saturday, October 15th.
The lucrative Simone Classic is unique in that it features both a winged and non-winged sprint car feature event, both sanctioned by the Northern Auto Racing Club. Teams must use the same cars for both shows with only limited adjustments allowed to the car (no front axle changes.) They have 15-minutes to convert their cars to the non-wing configuration.
With the cancellation of the August 27th show at the Stockton Dirt Track due to a shortage of Hoosier race tires, the NARC sprint cars are dark until October 8th Morrie Williams Memorial at Keller Auto Speedway in Hanford. That event features twin-20 main events with the second race totally inverted by the finish of the first.
Other events in October include the a stop at the Dirt Track at Kern County Raceway Park on the 29th. The season finale is on November 5th when the Stockton Dirt Track hosts the Tribute to Gary Patterson Championship night. The NARC Championship Celebration is on November 6th at the Brookside Country Club.
With five races remaining on the NARC schedule, Fresno’s Dominic Scelzi is the current championship point leader.
