New Format for SRL at Kern County Raceway

Bakersfield, CA (June 1, 2023) In an attempt to lessen the workload for the race teams at the upcoming SRL event at Kern County Raceway, a new one-day race format will be tested on June 17th.

“We all know it can be warm in Bakersfield in June, so we wanted to try something new and see how the teams like it,” stated the SRL’s Brian Olsen.  “We will offer an optional early morning practice on race day, then in the afternoon we will use the times from practice to set the lineup for H&S Body Works heat races, with the results from the heats setting the main event line ups for the evening.”

The June 17th event will feature the $10,000 to win, $800 to start SPEARS Southwest Tour Series JM Environmental Wild West Shootout, the Spears Manufacturing Modified Series and the SPEARS SRL Pro Late Model Series presented by Sigma Performance Services.  The night will also feature the biggest fireworks show of the year presented by LiUNA. 

Pit gates will open at 8am, optional practice from 10am to 1pm, driver’s meeting at 1:45pm, practice at 2:30pm, spectator gates at 4pm – adult admission $25, kids 6-10 $10, first race at 7pm.
