          The second half of the season at Antioch Speedway Antioch Speedway has been revised, offering more races for several divisions of race cars, including a three weeks in a row of Late Model Stock Car Racing beginning on September 21. The Late Models will also race on August 24.

The start of the second half of the season begins Saturday night (July 13) with the running of the “Firecracker 50” a special “open” event for modified stock cars paying $1,000 to win. It concludes with the October 5 “Delta Classic” featuring Late Model Stock Cars, Modifieds, Wingless Sprint Cars, Hobby Stocks and Dwarf Cars.

Promoter John Soares hopes to make the Late Model Stock Cars a regularly featured division at the 3/8-mile clay oval.

“I’m a late model owner, driver, and fan,” he explained. “I’m trying to revive this division. Hopefully, we can make Antioch Speedway the home track for the northern California late models next year.”

Soares is seeking sponsorship for the Late Model Stock Car events as added incentive to bring drivers and car owners to the track.

Two additional feature events have been added for the Super Stock and Hobby Stock divisions. The All Star Wingless Sprints will gain one event, as will the Dwarf Car division.

“We had to juggle things because of last weekend’s moving of the ‘Firecracker 50’ to this weekend,” Soares said. “Postponement of the race proved to be a popular decision with fans, though some drivers felt they needed another weekend of racing to make up for the weekend lost. So, we re-vamped the schedule.”

The “Firecracker” program will also include complete qualifying and feature events for the Sport Mod, Super Stock, Hobby Stock, Dwarf Car and “Four Banger” divisions. Racing begins at 6: 30 p.m. Antioch Speedway is located in the Contra Costa Fairgrounds, 1201 W. 10th St. in Antioch, Calif. Secure parking is offered by the fair for $5.
