Announcing the World of Outlaws at Calistoga Speedway, Calistoga, California, Sept 15-16. We are seeing big rigs all around the area transporting Sprint Cars and converging onto this location for top dirt track circle racing.

The staff at the Kingdon event also supplied plenty of shaded seating covered by tents, all real […]
