the Speedway at Willow Springs International Raceway Revs Up for Our 2013 Opening Night!

We are only two days away from kicking off our 2013 season on April 27 at The Speedway at WSIR. Racing begins at 6pm. Late Models, Street Stocks, Hobby Stocks, Mini Stocks, and Bombers are all on the program.

"The 2013 race season is being presented by GIRT Promotions "

As an added bonus you can get nowhere else, your $10 adult ticket gives you a wristband for the entire weekend of events at the 2.5 mile road course as well. Arrive early Saturday April 27th and enjoy the AHRMA vintage motorcycle racing in some super high speed action, then come have fun with us at the ¼ mile Saturday night. And if you still haven’t had enough, come on back Sunday for even more. Yes, a complete weekend of racing entertainment for only $10!

What do some Tail Gating? Throw your own personal party while watching the action at our ¼ mile for just $5 per vehicle.

Can you name a better bargain?

Yes, we can. Have an RV? Stay the night for no extra charge (dry camp) and enjoy Sunday’s events as well. Hookups are available at the road course area for a small extra charge. Contact (661) 256-2471 for reservations.

Our 2013 season features nine events including the first ever appearance of the West Coast Outlaw Figure 8's to the Speedway. The Southwest Tour Trucks will make two visits, and our hard charging Stock Car divisions will appear at all nine races.

Our 1/4 mile oval is part of the eight race tracks and 600 acres that make up Willow Springs International Raceway. Internationally recognized since 1953 as among the most prestigious in the World, and as of 1996, a California State Historical Landmark. Michael Andretti, Tommy Kendall, Derrick Cope, and Nigel Mansell all hold track records at the facility.

Here is a little more detail on two terrific features you cannot get anywhere else. Once you are in the front gates, your ticket is good for the entire weekend of racing for the road course events on the grounds, in addition to our Saturday night event. The 2.5 mile Fastest Road in the West which features dramatic elevation changes, and the infamous Turn 9 with speeds approaching 200 mph. The Streets of Willow Springs, and The Horse Thief Mile, also have events just about every weekend through the year. Hangout in the pits, talk with the drivers, and get some terrific pictures. Also, there is the WSIR gift shop and full snack bar open every weekend. Take a drive up to the Budweiser Balcony and enjoy an incredible view of the Antelope Valley as well.

The second feature of our 1/4 mile oval that you can not get just about anywhere else is Tail Gating. ($5 nominal charge per vehicle) Our guests can enjoy the action from the comfort of your car should you choose. Our prime spots are very limited, so get there early for the best locations. We also have a large amount of grandstand seating for the full experience as well with free parking.

Our Saturday Night divisions will feature the best stock car drivers in the region. The 4 cylinder Mini-Stocks, The Bombers, The Hobby and Street Stocks, and our premier division Late Models will be charging hard for the 2013 Championship. We had a number of new teams at practice, come out to see how they stack-up against our seasoned veterans. Get ready for some old school side by side stock car racing like it used to be. Big inverts, Restart Cone side by side yellow flag restarts, where the drivers can pick inside or outside line. We are gonna change it up and have some fun!

Other fun events are in the planning stages, and will be announced throughout the season.

We thank all our terrific sponsors for making our 2013 season possible!

KGG Electric, Pepsi, The Tire Store, AV Roadhouse, MGS Custom Motorcycles, Rock Inn, OFF Vintage Motorcycles, and Mirror Image Audio
