Tulare Thunderbowl Raceway releases 2015 schedule of events
By Gary Thomas

Tulare, CA – December 17, 2014'The always exciting Tulare Thunderbowl Raceway has officially released its 2015 schedule of events, highlighted by 11 total nights of racing on eight different weekend's this coming season.

As usual the year begins with a two-night show featuring the World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series on Friday & Saturday March 13 & 14. To add more lure this season is the fact that the event will be co-sanctioned by the King of the West 410 Sprint Car Series, which guarantees an outstanding field of Winged 410 Sprint Cars during the weekend. Also competing both nights will be the always entertaining USAC West Coast Wingless 360 Sprint Car Series.

The finale on Saturday March 14 will also see the new Western RaceSaver Sprints make their debut. In total the RaceSaver Sprint Car Series will compete in Tulare seven times throughout the season. Tickets for the huge and much anticipated March weekend featuring the World of Outlaws/ King of the West 410 Series, USAC West Coast Wingless 360's & Western RaceSaver Sprints are on sale by calling (559) 688-0909. All seating in the house is reserved for the weekend.

In addition to the March weekend the King of the West 410 Sprint Car Series will also be on hand this season at the Thunderbowl on Saturday May 16 in the annual Chris & Brian Faria Memorial, Saturday July 25 in the 2nd running of the Peter Murphy Classic and on Saturday October 10 in the KRC Safety Fall Shootout. The October event takes place the weekend before Trophy Cup, giving teams one final chance to hit the track before the prestigious three-night show is held.

Along with the March weekend the USAC West Coast Wingless 360 Sprint Car Series will return to the one-third mile clay oval on Saturday May 16 as part of the Chris & Brian Faria Memorial, Saturday May 30, Saturday July 25 in the Peter Murphy Classic and on Saturday October 10 at the KRC Safety Fall Shootout. The USAC Honda Western Midget Series will also compete at the Thunderbowl this year on Saturday May 2 & Saturday May 30.

For the first time Thunderbowl Raceway will host the traveling Civil War 360 Sprint Car Series presented by Flowmaster on Saturday April 25. The premier Winged 360 Sprint Car organization out west has competed at nearby Kings Speedway in the past, but this year will be a first at the blazing fast Tulare oval.

The season comes to an end with the prestigious 22nd annual Southwest Contractors Trophy Cup for Winged 360 Sprint Cars on Thursday, Friday & Saturday October 15, 16 & 17. All the top drivers from California and beyond will be on hand in what has become arguably the 'Grand Daddy' of California Sprint Car racing. This past season saw Sacramento's Willie Croft take home the $20,000 top prize while driving for Rudeen Racing. Last season the Trophy Cup went over $1,000,000 in donations to the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

The Thunderbowl is also being given a face lift this off-season, with new fencing going up in both corners to try and eliminate the delays that have been seen in the past following on track incidents.
