Perris Auto Speedway and USAC are bringing back the pit party bigger and better than ever as part of the festivities for the 24th annual Budweiser Oval Nationals.
Nov. 7-9 | 9am ET
As soon as the night’s racing event concludes this Friday (Nov. 8) all racers, crews and fans are welcome to come down, join in and cut loose for "Racin's a Beach". The beach-themed event will feature live music from The Federales, serving up their style of 1980s and 90s Rock and Blues classic, plus corn hole and beer pong among other activities. The event is sponsored by John and Tammy McCarthy of FlowDynamics.
Rickie Gaunt, the 1999 Oval Nationals champion, will bring out his infamous Tiki Bar.
More than 40 drivers are entered for the Oval Nationals, featuring USAC's AMSOIL National, CRA and Sands Chevrolet Southwest Sprint Car series. Among them are former race winners Bud Kaeding (2001-02-07), Damion Gardner (2009-11-16), Chris Windom (2010), plus two-time and defending winner Kevin Thomas, Jr. (2017-18).
