NCMA is excited to be celebrating the 30th season of competition this year. What began in 1987 as an affordable open wheel class that could travel to different tracks, has developed into a very competitive series that saw 5 different winners last season. While the speeds and quality of the equipment has increased each season, the focus on providing a cost effective platform with a dependable tire and engine package has never wavered.
This season NCMA will celebrating the drivers, crews and tracks that have played such an important role in the longevity of the series. Planning is under way to have some of the past champions and series drivers featured at key events throughout the year.
NCMA now has two races in the books and look forward to gaining momentum as the season continues. The season opener which was the Pombo/Sargent Classic at Madera Speedway on April 1st saw a good battle for the feature win between David Burchett and Denny Burrell who were only tenths of a second apart as Burrell took the checkers. Unfortunately the opener at All American Speedway on April 15th was rained out but the Sprint Cars were back at Madera Speedway on May 6th for the Vukovich Classic. Cody Jessop was quick time at both events and unfortunately had mechanical problems at each. Fresno’s Justin Kawahata did a great job running for the first time again with NCMA in a couple of years to take the win at the Vukovich Classic.
The NCMA Sprint Cars will be back in action in July for a two day show. Lakeport Speedway on July 1st and Ukiah Speedway on July 2nd. These are some great action pack short tracks and the track promoter and crews do a nice job keeping the racing exciting and put on a fantastic fireworks show both nights after the races. Come out and join us for some great racing, family fun and enjoyment.
Look for NCMA at Madera Speedway, All American Speedway, Lakeport Speedway, Ukiah Speedway and Stockton 99 Speedway in 2017.
