Calistoga, CA – February 9, 2014…
At the end of last year one of the most discussed topics in Northern California Sprint Car racing was the transformation that the famed Calistoga Speedway had underwent during the season. Following an overwhelming success at the "Vermeil Classic" on Labor Day weekend, the historic half-mile will finally be greeted by Winged 410 Sprint Cars when the World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series invades the track on Saturday & Sunday April 5 & 6.
It will be the very first Winged Sprint Car event at the Napa County Fairgrounds based facility since October of 2012 and will certainly be the most anticipated “Winged” outing in many years. The most recent back-to-back double-header at the track for the World of Outlaws occurred way back in 2007, making the April visit a must see for many long-time fans of the high-speed and picturesque speedway.
“The amount of work that went into Calistoga Speedway last year was simply amazing,” commented Chris Morgan of Motorsports Ventures. “All of the support that the track received was pretty special and the effort they put into this place has launched it right back up there with the best dirt track facilities we have on the west coast. If you didn’t make it to the Vermeil Classic last year, you’ll definitely be in awe when you come to the World of Outlaws event in April. It’s really impressive what they have done here.”

During 2014 Campaign Dubbed ‘Salute to the King’
INDIANAPOLIS (Dec. 11, 2013) – Steve Kinser, the 20-time World of Outlaws (WoO) STP Sprint Car Series champion, announced today the upcoming 2014 WoO campaign will be his final season chasing the series championship. The Tony Stewart Racing (TSR) driver, who won the series’ first championship during the WoO inaugural season in 1978, is looking to join a long list of greats who have closed their career hoisting championship hardware. His final season with the WoO, called “Salute to the King,” kicks off in February with the DIRTcar Nationals in Florida.
Kinser, an icon in short-track racing, has dominated the WoO series during his 35 seasons of competition. The Bloomington, Ind., native has earned 576 career WoO A-Feature triumphs and has filled the record book with accomplishments that likely will not be matched. His goal for this 2014 season is to add to those records while battling for the title.
