  • Saturday is not just the season opener for Keller Auto Speedway, but will also be the sprint car race of the year in California. Due to state restrictions, no spectators will be permitted at the event.
  • Winged 360 sprint cars will compete under Kings of Thunder banner, a series comprised of events from two tracks in California's Central Valley: Keller Auto Speedway in Hanford and Thunderbowl Raceway in Tulare. The 30-lap feature will pay $3,000 to the winner.
  • Popular retired Australian sprint car racer, Peter Murphy, enters his second year as the owner of Keller Auto Speedway. Murphy, whose driving career ended after a near-fatal crash in 2013, earned much praise in his first year operating the facility. 
  • Dominic Scelzi, Carson Macedo, DJ Netto, Blake Carrick and Shane Golobic are some of the top contenders expected to be in action.
