by Chris McWilliams on February 17, 2011

Series Promoter Chris Kearns has announced an addition to the 2011 USAC West Coast 360 Sprint Car Schedule. On October 8th, the traditional 360 sprints will compete at Tulare’s Groppetti Automotive Thunderbowl Raceway. The winged ASCS Southern California Sprints, IMCA Modifieds, and IMCA Stocks are also featured that night.  The addition brings the schedule to eighteen events, including the non-point Cotton Classic at Scott Woodhouse’s Giant Chevrolet Kings Speedway in Hanford on October 15th.

The USAC West Coast 360 Sprint Cars will kickoff their season at Hanford on Friday, March 18th. The following night, March 19th, the group will battle at Tulare’s lightning fast clay oval. As previously released, both events are a showcase with the famed World of Outlaw Sprint Cars.  The USAC West Coast 360 Sprint Car Series was founded in 2009 by Santa Maria Speedway Promoter Chris Kearns and has really taken off since then.

In 2010, the series signed with the United States Auto Club (USAC) and gained all the advantages that come with USAC affiliation.  2010 series champion Craig Stidham of Fresno looks to defend his title against a strong field of challengers including 2010 series runner-up Davey Pombo.  In 2010 the West Coast 360 Sprint Car Series saw 13 different winners in 21 nights of action and 2011 looks to be just as exciting.
