Tulare, CA…The Stone Chevrolet Buick GMC Thunderbowl Raceway returns to life with a three-division cavalcade of speed during the “E.M. Tharp/ Golden State Peterbilt Classic” this Saturday April 29th.
Divisions set to tackle the one-third mile clay oval include the Kings of Thunder Winged 360 Sprint Cars, the Western RaceSaver Sprints and Legends of Kearney Bowl.
“We are excited to host the E.M. Tharp/Golden State Peterbilt Classic at Thunderbowl Raceway this Saturday,” commented track GM Josh Miller. “If you are looking for something fun to do with the entire family, we hope to see you here in Tulare.”
The initial two races with the Kings of Thunder Winged 360 Sprint Cars have been picked off by Hanford’s DJ Netto and Lemoore’s Cole Macedo. Following this Saturday’s event, the KOT 360s will return on May 20th for the annual Chris and Brian Faria Memorial. After that they’ll be off at Thunderbowl Raceway until the Trophy Cup Tune-Up in October.
The E.M. Tharp/Golden State Peterbilt Classic begins a rather busy next month at Stone Chevrolet Buick GMC Thunderbowl Raceway, prior to taking a break during the heat of the Summer. The Central California IMCA Clash invades Tulare on May 6th for the Kris Mancebo Memorial, before the aforementioned Faria Memorial on May 20th that showcases the USAC/CRA Wingless 410 Sprint Cars.
