The inaugural World of Outlaws event at Merle Stone Chevrolet Thunderbowl Raceway occurred in September of 2003 when 20-time series champion Steve Kinser scored victory over Tim Shaffer and Jason Meyers. The 2018 season marks the 15th overall year that the “Greatest Show on Dirt” will invade the one-third mile clay oval. This weekend’s event features both the World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series and the USAC West Coast Wingless 360 Sprint Car Series each night.

Van Dyke Motorsports heads for Thunderbowl Raceway in Tulare this weekend

By Gary Thomas

Tulare, CA – March 7, 2018…After suffering a rainout last weekend Van Dyke Motorsports is set to venture south and take on the World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series this Friday and Saturday at Merle Stone Chevrolet Thunderbowl Raceway in Tulare.

The weekend of competition will mark driver Michael “Buddy” Kofoid’s first career start with the “Greatest Show on Dirt” after turning 16 years of age in the off-season. He is no stranger to the Thunderbowl however, having become the youngest winner in track history when he captured a preliminary night victory at the 2016 Trophy Cup. Last season he also brought home a ninth-place result in the final standings at the event.

“I’m really excited to run my first World of Outlaws races this weekend in Tulare,” Kofoid commented. “Last year being too young made it tough to sit on the sidelines and miss the shows in California when they were here, but now having the opportunity to compete with the Outlaws is going to great. Thunderbowl Raceway is a fun race track and usually has multiple grooves to run, so I can’t wait until Friday.”

Car owner Harley Van Dyke also spoke about the weekend saying, “It’s going to be great to get Buddy his first laps with the World of Outlaws this Friday and Saturday. Thunderbowl Raceway is one of the challenging tracks we have out here, but it almost always puts on an exciting show. Competing with the Outlaws is never easy and there should be a great field of cars on hand, but we look forward to seeing where we stack up.”

The front gate will open at 4pm both nights at Thunderbowl Raceway and racing is scheduled to fire-off around 7pm. A seating chart, as well as hotel info is available online at http://www.tularethunderbowl.com

Merle Stone Chevrolet Thunderbowl Raceway is located at the Tulare County Fairgrounds on the corner of Bardsley and K Streets in Tulare, California. From the junction of SR 99 and SR 137, go west on SR 137. At South K go south one-half mile to the Fairgrounds. Camping is also available at the fairgrounds located off turns three and four.

Van Dyke Motorsports would like to thank Gary Silva Ranches, Lucas Oil Products, NAAKE Suspension and JRI West, TNT Trucking and Rafter V Farms for their support this season.
