Bakersfield, CA — The SPEARS Southwest Tour Series will open its seventeenth season in a big way with the “SPEARS Manufacturing 100”at Irwindale Speedway on Saturday, March 25th.

 

For the first time in history, the SPEARS Southwest Tour Series and the NASCAR K&N Pro Series will compete on the same night at Irwindale. The event also has historic significance, as the K&N Series will stage two separate 100-lap events in the same night with the “NAPA Auto Parts Twin 100’s”.

 

“This event brings the best teams and drivers from the western U.S. together for one big event,” stated the SRL’s Brian Olsen. “Another cool thing about this race is that the Cup and Xfinity Series will be just up the 10 freeway at Fontana all weekend.”

 

The schedule for this big night at Irwindale Speedway will start off with qualifying at 4:20pm, on-track autograph session at 6pm and the first 100 lapper for the NASCAR K&N Pro Series starting at 7pm, followed by the SPEARS Southwest Tour Series “SPEARS Manufacturing 100”, and finally the second 100-lap event for the K&N Series.
