The Ocean Speedway date will run in place of Marysville Raceway, with the series now competing both Friday and Saturday nights during the 64th Johnny Key Classic weekend. Winged 360 Sprint Cars will headline both nights of competition.
The 36th October Classic at Kern Raceway Dirt Track features the NARC 410 Sprint Cars and will be the championship weekend for WMR. WMR’s competitors will travel west to Ventura Raceway on Saturday October 26 to crown a champion.
With the adjustments, the 2024 slate is now a 19-race campaign in 2024. Ventura Raceway opens the season on March 16.
SCCT 360 Sprint Cars, USCS Sprint Cars, and BCRA Midgets are some of the other great divisions who will be sharing the card for WMR events in 2024.
