After having its first scheduled Super Saturday event rained out, the sun will be shining when the Madera Speedway returns to action on May 5, 2012 as its hosts the Vukovich Classic in Round #1 of the Super Saturday presented by Coors Light 410/360 Super Modifieds, USAC Sprint Cars, BCRA/USAC Midgets, NCMA Sprints Cars, Southwest Tour Truck Series, Vintage Super Modifieds, Valley Sportsman, BCRA Vintage Sprints & Midgets.
There will be plenty of local drivers from the Central Valley that will grace the Speedway’s newly paved track for 50 laps of Super Modified racing as well as the other great classes competing. That talented list includes Tanner Swanson of Kingsburg, Kyle Vanderpool of Madera, Jim Birges of Fresno and A.J. Russell of Clovis among others.
Vanderpool won the last open wheel race of the season at the Madera Speedway on Sept. 17, 2011 as he took the main while the No. 32 car of Jim Birges came in second.
Racing starts at 5:20 p.m. including a 75-lap main for the Southwest Tour Trucks!
