MADERA, CA – The California Supermodified Series (CSS) is proud to announce its 2016 Race Schedule. Returning to the home of last year’s inaugural season, the Series is thrilled to race this season at the famed LoanMart Madera Speedway, “The Fastest one-third mile in the West”. The CSS is scheduled to invade LoanMart Madera Speedway seven times in 2016, including the Pombo/Sargent Classic, the Vukovich Classic, the Gerhardt Classic, and the Harvest Classic which all are rich in West Coast Open Wheel racing tradition, heritage, and legacy!


This season marks 45 consecutive years of racing at the iconic track located in the heart of California and in the heart of so many racers, teams, and fans! LoanMart Madera Speedway Promoter Kenny Shepherd recognizes what a monumental accomplishment it is for the track with his goal “To pay tribute to the great traditions and past history of our speedway while standing hard on the gas pedal driving toward the future of motorsports.” The CSS embraces such phenomenal mission, is honored to carry the Supermodified torch while celebrating the magnificent open wheel heritage, and excited to drop the hammer and fly around LoanMart Madera Speedway!


Looking to build on the Series’ first racing season last year, the CSS anticipates new and exciting additions as the 2016 season approaches. “The interest, rejuvenated passion, and continued growth of the series are electrifying as we see the revival of cars not seen in a number of years, as well as reemerging, and new, drivers and teams!” says CSS Director Jeremiah Bearden. “We have a great potential Rookie of the Year battle shaping up, a number of eager challengers seeking Victory Lane, a number of returning tenacious veterans, and hopefully a few surprises in store for this season! We’re ecstatic to contribute to the heritage and celebration this season at LoanMart Madera Speedway, while racing for the best fans around!”
