Yes. Lake Havasu is known mainly for its abundance of aquatic activities. However, we love our cars, too (remember our Cruisin’ on Main events?). Well, this weekend, NASCAR comes to Havasu. More specifically, the NASCAR K&N Pro Series West will be racing at the Havasu 95 Speedway, our local race track, on Saturday night, from 5pm to 8pm. This is the first time NASCAR has ever made it to our little neck of the woods. And I know adrenaline junkies are excited!
On Friday, April 13, 2012, drivers will be holding a meet and greet at Kokomo’s. From 2pm to 3pm, everyone is welcome to meet the guys that will be driving the cars around the track on Saturday evening. Get yourself an autograph from your favorites as well. Afterward, watch the haulers parade the crew and their gear from Dillard’s (5501 Hwy 95 N) to the Havasu 95 Speedway. Once you’re there, watch these guys practice from 5pm to 8pm. Admission to the practice session is absolutely free to all who are interested. It’s a great preview of coming attractions!
On Saturday night (April 14th), the real racing begins. Watch actual NASCAR vehicles compete as they make their way to the checkered flag. Gates open at 3pm. Racing will begin at 5pm. General admission is just $30 per person, while kids ages 6-11 are $15 each and kids under the age of 6 absolutely free. You can purchase your tickets at Bill McAnally Racing, Gene Price Racing (928-667-2626, tickets will be available at Will Call) or ASAP Digital Printing (928-854-8999). Of course, you can always get them at Havasu 95 Speedway as well during Friday’s practice session or on the day of the race itself.
It’s great that NASCAR has made it’s way to Havasu. This isn’t the only race the Havasu 95 Speedway hosts, though. Modifieds, vintage racers, street stocks, factory stocks, late models and more compete throughout the year. For a complete schedule of the current racing season, please visit the Havsau 95 Speedway website. Whatever type of vehicle a gear head might be interested in, Lake Havasu has the race for you.
