STOCKTON 99 SPEEDWAY
2012 Schedule Last race:
With the 2012 Season on the Horizon, It’s Already
Shaping Up to be a Beautiful Year of Racing Pleasure
Nothing says Spring like the accelerating smell of
high-octane mixed with hot rubber and the undeniable roar of
engines at the Toughest Test in the West that is the
Stockton 99 Speedway! This Season, for all intents and
purposes, holds forth promises, and expectations, to be the
very best that has come our way during the perpetual rise of
the New Era. The list is relentless! And the list begins
on Sunday, February 12th, with the Speedway’s
Fourth Annual Swap Meet.
First and foremost, the Old Girl will be sporting a new Premier Division that will come in the form of the Grand American Modifieds. And, within this Division, thanks to Ron Sutton’s Winner’s Circle and Star Racing Supply, another Division, so to speak, will exist for the less horsepower and fewer frills Modifieds wanting to run. The Management at Stockton has worked diligently with the management at Roseville to make this a two-track Series without conflicting race dates. That, in itself, should draw the attention of many racers, which in turn should increase the car-counts to make for some unbelievable, hard-core racing results. For more information on this please visit the Speedway’s Website or give them a call at (209)466-9999.
Also, after several years of abstinence, the K&N Pro Series
West will make a rare visit to the Speedway on Saturday, May
5th. These large horsepower, heavy hotrods will
be an absolute pleasure to watch as they try to negotiate
the tight turns on the quarter-mile paved oval. If you’re
making plans to attend this race, you more than likely
better begin making them now, and come out early the day of
the Event, because on this night, it will be standing room
only as management plans on a full house.
Not to be outdone, the SRL SPEARS Southwest Tour Series will
be a frequent flyer at the 99 this year with three dates:
March 31st, June 9th and August 18th.
These are three more races you simply won’t want to miss.
Last year the Championship Battle went down to the wire with
Prunedale Great, Jim Pettit II, capturing the crown in the
final couple races. This year, Pettit is expected to
return, stronger than ever, to defend this prestigious
Title. There will be some additional oldcomers and
newcomers, so this should definitely pan out to be a very
exciting year for this Series.
At this point, let’s not forget the fan-favorite Legends of
the Pacific. This series is one of the tightest and best
run touring series that visits us each and every year. And
this year will certainly be no disappointment as these
little guys come to roost no less than eight nights at the
storied venue. Also, the Vintage Hardtops return for the
nostalgia lovers in the grandstands, which happens to
include almost everyone who frequents the Speedway. The
Northern California Pro-4 Modifieds will be back in action
as well. These little four-cylinder open-wheelers flat out
get after it on the high-banks of Stockton. If you haven’t
had the pleasure of watching them race, you need to make it
a point this year as they always put on a great show.
And, of course, this reporter would be remiss in the
omission of the track’s regular Divisions; the lifeblood of
Stockton 99 Speedway’s return to glory. The Western Late
Models will return to action with a nearly-full cup of
racing on the agenda. The Super Stocks, last year’s Premier
Division, will be back in a lesser capacity with fewer
races. Also on the weekly ticket will be the Bombers,
Basically-4-Cylinders, Mini Cups, Enduros and the Open Wheel
Touring Divisions. There will be plenty of racing for every
flavor imaginable, so take stock and start marking those
Many, many more exciting things are planned for the New
Year, including Tony Queirolo
Night and Johnny Brazil night, once again. So
please stay tuned for updates as they become available.
With very little doubt, Stockton 99 Speedway will be the
place to be this Racing Season, to quench the thirst of even
the staunchest of critics!
