The Northern Auto Racing Club (NARC) announced a flurry of schedule changes and additions to their 2023 sprint car schedule.

Topping the list is the addition of Antioch Speedway to the schedule on Saturday, April 29th.  It will mark the first NARC visit to the 3/8 mile dirt oval located at the Contra Costa County fairgrounds since 2017.

“We are really excited to have the NARC sprint cars return to Antioch Speedway,” said Chris Bennett, the Speedway’s Director of Competition.  “We are grateful that NARC worked us back in their busy schedule because race fans have been anxiously waiting to watch the 410 sprint cars again.”

To accommodate Antioch Speedway, the 11th Annual David Tarter Memorial at Silver Dollar Speedway will slide back one week to May 6th.  This turned out to be a good move for the Chico track because of a conflict with another event on the fairgrounds.

In another schedule change, Keller Auto Speedway announced that it will now host both nights of the Peter Murphy Classic on May 12-13th.  The original slate of events had the Tulare Thunderbowl hosting the first night and Keller the big $11,000 to win finale.  The May 13th show will also feature the Sprint Car Challenge Tour 360 sprint cars.

“This two-day show now provides open wheel fans the opportunity to set up camp at the track for the entire weekend,” said Keller Auto Speedway promoter and event namesake Peter Murphy.  “It just started to make more sense to have both events at Keller Auto Speedway.”

NARC will invade Tulare for the two-day Dennis Roth Classic on April 14-15th.

Overall, the NARC 410 Sprint Car Series campaign now features 25 shows at 14 different venues.  Racing  kicks off on March 18th with the Mini Gold Cup in Chico.
