Our "web" guy is in Mexico and I cannot figure out how to post these myself, so to avoid another mean email from Rob Smiley, I am posting here. Should be up on website early next week.

PRELIMINARY USAC WESTERN SCHEDULES ANNOUNCED


   A total of 141 races are listed on the preliminary 2009 USAC Western racing calendar, announced today.

   Highlights of the schedules announced today include the return of Stockton 99 Speedway, Shasta Speedway and Petaluma Speedway. It’s been three years since USAC has raced at Stockton, the California track being closed during 2008. The last USAC race at Shasta in Anderson, Calif. was in 2006, while USAC hasn’t been at the Petaluma, Calif. Fairgrounds since 2005.

   Stockton will host the Western Sprint Cars on May 2, then welcomes a “tripleheader” on October 10 featuring the Western Sprints, Midgets and Ford Focuses. The Western Midgets race at Shasta on July 3 and September 12, while the USAC/CRA Sprints are at Petaluma on June 20.

   The Western campaign opens February 20-21 with the “Copper on Dirt” at Manzanita Speedway in Phoenix, Ariz. and concludes with a USAC/CRA Sprint race at Perris (Calif.) Auto Speedway on November 28.

   Among milestones in the 2009 season will be the 100th USAC/CRA Sprint race at Perris Auto Speedway (currently scheduled March 28), the 200th USAC/CRA Sprint race (late in the season) and the 200th USAC Western Sprint race (mid-2009).

   The preliminary schedule, subject to additions, deletions and changes, is listed below. USAC Western officials continue negotiations with various race facilities regarding events for the 2009 season and some of those are listed as TBA (to be announced) on today’s schedule listing.

Kevin, I've always had the opinion that sometimes you just need to let customers go.  I don't know what kind of private harassment you receive from that poster but it's inexcusable for him to have that kind of attitude towards you and the work USAC puts into making the schedules.

I'll reiterate my thought that it's a lot easier for Rob to put down his 10 bucks and sit in the grandstands for a few hours once a week than it is for promoters, racing groups, and team to put in thousands, if not millions of dollars, hundreds of man hours just to put a product on the track for him to enjoy.

Almost forgot to say, good job on the schedule.  Some of us still respect and appreciate the work your putting up.

Actually Rob is a great fan. We shared a beer at Perris and I appreciate his passion for the support. It is guys like him that support our teams on a weekly basis. Thanks!

reguarding the california ff schedule: what happened to watsonville? their schedule has the ff there on may 16th. i sure hope that may 2nd date turns into a bakersfield like it should...we need more races at bakersfield kevin.

i also see the tba's on the may 2nd and october 3rd races as well for the midgets. when looking at the track schedules, i found that bakersfield and stockton were both scheduled for may 2nd and hanford and manzy were both scheduled on october 3rd.

is the ff series going to be one series again?
