The 2018 short track racing season is all but over, but that also means that there is just two weeks remaining until the start of the winter portion of the 2019 season. While there are still tracks and series that have not revealed their schedules beyond the first two months of the year, January and February are locked in.
Now you can start planning for what is a busy rest of the winter by visiting the PFC Brakes racing calendar on Speed51.com to see what’s coming up in January and February.
To access the calendar, go to the “schedules” tab right underneath the Speed51.com logo on the home page. You will then be given a dropdown menu in which you can select which month of the year you want to view.
January is stacked full of events all across the nation, even in some of the coldest parts of the country this time of year. Up north fans and drivers will brave the cold and possibly even snow for enduro racing, while TQ Midgets will scream to life indoors on the concrete. Plus, there is the greatest indoor show on dirt with the 32nd running of the Lucas Oil Chili Bowl in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
At the lower latitudes there is plenty to do outside with full-size race cars. On the eastern seaboard such as the New Year’s Bash on the Dillon Motor Speedway (SC) asphalt and The Hangover on the dirt at Bubba Raceway Park (FL) for Street Stocks.
Late Models have plenty to look forward to both east and west.
On pavement, New Smyrna Speedway (FL) begins with the Red Eye 50/50 for both Super and Pro Late Models, with CRA SpeedFest going long distance to end January at Crisp Motorsports Park (GA). Out west, Super Late Models rekindle memories of the old “Winter Heat” days starting with the Chilly Willy 150 at Tucson Speedway (AZ).
The dirt is plenty busy too with Late Model action, the Ice Bowl at Talladega Short Track (AL) kickstarts action in the Southeast, while the Southwest has six days of excitement centered around the Wild West Shootout at Arizona Speedway.
As for February, you can find all the usual goodies such as the Myrtle Beach (SC) Ice Breaker, SRL Winter Showdown at Kern County Raceway (CA), World Series of Asphalt Stock Car Racing at New Smyrna (FL), Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series Winternationals, DIRTcar Nationals, Arizona Modified Tour, and so much more.
This is only the tip of it all, so be sure to check out the PFC Brakes calendar right now.
The full 2019 calendar will be updated in the coming weeks.
