INDIANAPOLIS – Twenty-four events make up the heart of the AMSOIL USAC/CRA Sprint Car Series season at eight tracks in the states of California and Arizona.

The Grand Canyon State of Arizona bookends the season with the opening dates arriving at Peoria’s Canyon Speedway Park for the two-night show Spring Showcase on March 12-13.

Meanwhile, the 54th annual San Tan Ford Western World Championships at Arizona Speedway will host the series finales and crown a champion on Nov. 12-13, a blockbuster event in conjunction with the USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car Series and USAC NOS Energy Drink National Midget Series.

Arizona Speedway will also host the series on Oct. 2 for the Hall of Fame Classic.

The bulk of the schedule will take place at the traditional locale of Perris (Calif.) Auto Speedway, which will be the location of half the events in 2021.

The first of the dozen begins on March 20, with subsequent dates on April 24 for the Sokola Shootout followed by the Salute to Indy on May 22; a return trip on June 19; then Summer Campfest on July 16-17; the California Racers Hall of Fame Night on Aug. 21; the Glenn Howard Classic on Sept. 25; and a final Oval Nationals tune-up date on Oct. 23.

The sequence concludes with the 25th running of the Budweiser Oval Nationals presented by All Coast Construction on Nov. 4-6 with the USAC National Sprint Car Series.

California’s Santa Maria Raceway is on for two dates, the Doug Fort Classic on July 3 and the Bud Stanfield Memorial on Aug. 14.

The prestigious Louie Vermeil Classic is back on tap for the series, Sept. 4-5 at the half-mile dirt track in the heart of wine country at Calistoga (Calif.) Speedway.

Three California tracks are set to host one event apiece: Ventura Raceway on May 1; Bakersfield Speedway on May 8; and Petaluma Speedway on Sept. 6.
