The Speedway will host 30 events throughout the upcoming season. As usual, the 410 winged sprint cars will be the staple of the speedway with 18 scheduled nights of racing between the World of Outlaws, King of the West sprint cars and the weekly Friday night point shows. “We wanted to continue and showcase our 410 winged sprint cars,” said promoter Dennis Gage. “We have a solid local supporting cast of 410 teams and it has been a long standing tradition to have Chico run the 410 winged sprint cars during the majority of the season.”
