2004 "99" Schedule 

CMRA "Young Guns Series" born in the Central Valley for 2005!

November 21st - Danville, CA

In the 2003 racing season, several young drivers and their parents elected to bring their racing skills to a higher level by traveling to Washington State to compete with other young drivers in the Minicup West Coast Nationals. This fostered more youthful interest from the Sacramento and Stockton areas of Central California. At the end of the 2004 Minicup Season, a wave of new interest exploded bring more and more youth to the sport of minicup auto racing, some from other venues such as quarter midgets and go-karting.

Minicup ½ scaled stock car racing allows competition based on skill and ability without the need of size and muscle opening the arena to every interested youth age 8 to 16 years. Adding the realism of door-to-door NASCAR type racing on ¼ mile to 1/3-mile tracks brings the dreams of future drivers to a reality they can enjoy now, honing their skills on the same tracks that adult drivers compete, only with their youthful peers.

The 2005 racing season brings a Minicup Racing series that is equal to none in existence in the Nation. California Minicup Racings Series is proud and honored to announce the "Young Guns Series", a 14 race series, based in Roseville and Stockton located in the Central Valley at All American Speedway and Stockton 99 Speedway respectively.
