In just over one week the dry spell ends at the Bakersfield Speedway for the World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series as ‘The Greatest Show on Dirt’ returns for this first time since the 2005 season for the Budweiser Bash on April 15th.

In recent action for the series, a trio of events at California bullrings has seen Jason Johnson win at the Placerville Speedway, Brad Sweet use a late race move to win at the Ocean Speedway, and most recently Donny Schatz charged from his 14th starting spot at the Silver Dollar Speedway to win the Mini Gold Cup.


As of late, California’s own wheelmen have been giving the World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series drivers fits, and the Bakersfield Speedway will likely be the final opportunity for a local to steal one from the traveling organization.
