Welcome to the most exciting form of motorsports known to man! Yes .., we’re talking about 950-horsepower open wheel sprint cars battling wheel-to-wheel on a dirt oval track. To loyal racing fans, this exciting brand of racing has few peers in the world of motorsports. And rightfully so!
The NARC King of the West Fujitsu Sprint Cars Series has been entertaining fans for six decades as the best sprint car teams in California do battle at dirt oval tracks throughout State. We have several great racing events and promotions lined up for you!
For those of you new to the sport, most fans recognize sprint cars by two noteworthy characteristics – the billboard size aerodynamic wings that stabilize the cars at high-speed and the staggered tires that improve cornering ability. The wings work in reverse of an airplane wing and produce down force which helps the car get a grip on the racetrack. In addition, the wings improve stability of the car in the corners and allow sprint cars to generate laps times of less than 16 seconds on a half-mile oval. Did we mention that these cars only weight 1450 pounds fully loaded? To pilot one of these 410 c.i. fire-breathing machines requires not only bravery, but split-second aggressive decision making and driving skills that are just downright impressive.
We encourage you to catch up with the 2020 NARC-KWS racing series at a track near you between March 14th and November 7th. Overall, our schedule features 19-racing events at 10 different venues including Silver Dollar Speedway in Chico, Kern County Speedway in Bakersfield, Placerville Speedway, Calistoga Speedway, Petaluma Speedway, Ocean Speedway in Watsonville, Tulare Thunderbowl Raceway, Santa Maria Speedway, Keller Auto Speedway in Hanford, and the Stockton Dirt Track.
We thank our racing teams and sponsors for their generous commitment to open wheel racing and the Northern Auto Racing Club King of the West series. And most importantly, we thank you … our loyal fans for your patronage and support. LET’S GO RACING!
