Everything at Kern County Raceway (CA) is business as usual even though it has been listed for sale.


“The track is available for sale, if the right situation presents itself.  But that doesn’t mean the days are numbered at KCRP, it simply means it’s available for sale while we continue to operate as we always have,” stated track General Manager, Larry Collins.


Track owners Virgie Beard and Rusty Risi will sell if the right group or individual makes a proper offer, and agrees to continue to operate the raceway.


“In business, everything is for sale if the right offer presents itself“, stated Risi. 


Virgie Beard added, “We can’t be more pleased with the successes of the track in 2017 and our staff is hard at work building an even better 2018.”


The Kern County Raceway management and staff will continue as usual with the operation of the three racing venues that are part of KCRP, the paved half mile, the 1/3 mile dirt track and its motocross track.


Highlights of the upcoming 2018 season already include the “Winter Showdown” which has drawn Kyle Busch back for the February 3rd event. Kevin Harvick will compete at KCRP for the first time on March 15th and the NARC King of the West Sprint Car Series will return to the KCRP Dirt Track for two dates in 2018.


A complete schedule of events for 2018 will be released soon.
