STOCKTON, Calif. – Delta Speedway has released the schedule for its 33rd year of racing on the seventh-mile dirt oval at the San Joaquin County Fairgrounds.

The Micro Sprint facility will again stage championship racing for Super 600, Non Wing, Restricted and Jr. Sprints across 14 points races and several special events.

C&P Promotions will begin its sixth season at the helm and first of a new five year extension. Promoters Bob and Tiffanie Panella have been present for some of the most successful seasons in track history, culminating in 2018’s campaign that included a season long average of 95.8 cars per points race.

The season will commence on Friday, March 15 for the annual World of Outlaws weekend race.  Delta Speedway serves as the kick off for the World of Outlaws Sprint Car action at the adjacent Stockton Dirt Track.  A play day will follow on March 30 before the points season opens on April 6.

Two of the most popular events at the track are the Summer Sizzler and the Dual at Delta, which each give drivers two complete nights of points racing on a single weekend.  The Sizzler will be Friday and Saturday June 15-16 during the San Joaquin County Fair.  The Dual runs over Labor Day weekend on Saturday and Sunday Aug. 31-Sept. 1.

California Speedweek continues to grow as an international presence in the Micro Sprint world and its fifth edition will include Delta Speedway on June 26. The event is organized by C&P Promotions and Steven Blakesley.  On the heels of one of the highest paying Turkey Bowls yet, Turkey Bowl XIX will take place Oct. 25-26.

Defending track champions include Nikko Panella in Super 600, T.J. Smith in Non Wing, Caeden Steele in Restricted, and Dalton Parreira in Jr. Sprints. Teams flock to Delta Speedway to battle for the $1,000 championship awards each year.
