MADERA SPEEDWAY RELEASES SCHEDULE FOR 47TH SEASON OF RACING

 

MADERA, CALIFORNIA (December 24, 2017) – MAVTV-televised Madera Speedway has announced the schedule for its 47th season of competition, as the fastest one-third mile in the west gears up for a busy campaign.  The 2017 season saw the RPM Mortgage Pro Late Model Series average nearly 30 cars per race event while the 51FIFTY Jr. Late Model Series continued to grow in its second season.

 

The fourth season of MAVTV television coverage at the speedway will expand with the RPM Mortgage Pro Late Models and 51FIFTY Jr. Late Models each getting nine races in 2018.  The two divisions headline the season opener for the track on March 10th with the 100 lap RPM race paying $5000 to win while the Jr. Late Models will race for 80 laps.  The inaugural round of the Mini Cup vs. Bandolero series will also be on March 10th.

 

RPM Mortgage Pro Late Models roll back to 80 laps for each of their six $2,000 to win races on April 7th, April 28th, May 26th, June 30th, August 25th, and September 22nd.  The shorter races will better fit the TV window while sharing the card with the 80 lap Jr. Late Model races.  The July 28th race will be 100 laps and $5000 to win, while the sixth annual Short Track Shootout on 6th will pay $10,000 to win with a 150 lap feature.

 

“I feel 2018 will be the strongest year we have ever seen at the Madera Speedway,” Promoter Kenny Shepherd said.  “The depth of talent competing in both of our MAVTV series is going to provide fans with some of the best racing in the nation!”

 

Super Late Models appear at the speedway four times as well with the Pacific Challenge Series presented by PenneyLawyers.com on March 17th and August 11th while the SPEARS SRL Southwest Tour visits March 24th and September 29th.  The Lucas Oil Modified Series visits Madera twice as well with the Summertime Horsepower Nationals on June 9th paired with North State Modifieds along with racing during the Short Track Shootout October 6th.

 

The Madera Late Models anchor the local shows with seven points races total.  Other points paying divisions at Madera in 2018 will be the Madera Hobby Stocks, Toyota Sedans, and Modified Super Toyotas.

 

Open wheel traditions continue in 2018 with the Western Winged Super Sprints racing three times, BCRA Midgets four times, and USAC HPD Midgets nearly ten times.  Major open wheel races include the Pombo/Sargent Classic in March, The Vukovich Classic in May, Gerhardt Classic with three-wide Midgets in July, and the Harvest Classic in September. The popular spec series Legends of the Pacific and the historic Legends of Kearney Bowl will also be staples on the ambitious schedule.

 

Madera Racing on MAVTV airs Thursdays with the 51FIFTY Energy Drink Jr. Late Model Series finale airing December 28th.  The show airs at 5 p.m. and 8 p.m. PST and is also available on the Lucas Oil Racing TV app.
