2020 USAC West Coast Sprint Schedule Announced

USAC’s West Coast Sprint Car division is raring to go entering its 11th season in 2020.

It all kicks off on March 14 for the California-based series at Keller Auto Speedway at Kings Fairgrounds for the series’ lone trip of the season to the Hanford, Calif. track.  On April 18, the series makes its first and only trip of the season to Bakersfield Speedway followed a night later by the series debut at nearby Kern County Raceway Park, also in Bakersfield.

A doubleheader weekend in mid-May brings the USAC West Coast Sprints to Thunderbowl Raceway in Tulare, Calif. for the Peter Murphy Classic on May 15.  The following night, on May 16, the series tackles Petaluma Speedway.

June marks the return for the series to Thunderbowl Raceway for the Chris & Brian Faria Memorial races on June 13.  A week later, it’s back to the beach for the first round of the Battle at the Beach at Ventura Raceway on June 20.  Meanwhile, Placerville Speedway makes its debut on the USAC West Coast Sprint schedule with a mid-summer date on July 11.

The month of August sends the series to its lone 2020 visit to Santa Maria Raceway on August 1 for the Bud Stanfield Memorial.  Petaluma returns to the fold on August 8, while Ventura Raceway closes out the month on August 29.

Another twin-bill weekend for the series finds itself back at Kern County Raceway Park on September 11 followed a night later, on September 12, at Ventura Raceway.  The October 10 event at Placerville Speedway closes out the 2020 points season before two final non-points nights hit Ventura Raceway on November 25-26 for the 80th running of the Turkey Night Grand Prix to close the curtain on the campaign.
