Back-to-Back in the Sunshine State: For the second consecutive year, Florida plays host to the two opening acts of U.S. Majors Tour action. The two-stop state tour began at the Homestead-Miami Speedway and will close at the historic Sebring International Raceway. Say goodbye to Old Man Winter and welcome in the racing season with temps in the mid-70s.
So-Cal Celebration of Speed: Auto Club Speedway, located less than 60 miles from Downtown Los Angles, will host the opening weekend of Western Conference Majors competition for the third consecutive year. The high banks that make up Turns One and Two coupled with the tight and technical infield means there’s a little something for everyone. Not only that, but temperatures are forecasted to in the mid-70s under sunny skies.
A New Generation: This coming weekend, a total of 38 Spec Racer Ford Gen3s will be taking to the track in their inaugural season of Runoffs eligibility. At Homestead, drivers raved about the increased power and handling characteristics of the new car. This is the first chance drivers on the West Coast will have to shake their new machines down, in Majors competition.
Spec Miata Madness: Between the two events on opposite coasts, a total of 88 Spec Miata drivers have pre-registered to race this weekend. The massive fields and top talent in the class should provide some excellent on-track action, in both cases.
