CANCELED – MERCED STEPS IN FOR LIGHTNING SPRINTS
CA, November 11, 2020) The topsy turvy 2020
California Lightning Sprint Car season took another
downturn that was quickly followed by an upturn on
Tuesday. Due to the Covid crisis, the three-night
“Hangtown 100” at the Placerville Speedway, which
the CLS was a part of, was canceled. Soon after,
Merced Speedway promoter Doug Lockwood stepped up to
host events on November 20th and 21st. The show on
the 21st will include the BCRA Midget Lites who will
welcome the CLS. Proceeding that show will be the
November Classic at “The West’s Fastest 1/3 Mile
High Banked Clay Oval,” the Bakersfield Speedway, on
The Bakersfield show will be conducted with CLS
rules. The Merced race will be run with BCRA rules.
Both events will be winged races and both will pay
$1,000.00 to win (Merced $1,000.00 to win based on
20 cars starting the main event).
Both shows will also
feature the NOS Energy Drink USAC National Midgets.
In addition, the Merced show will also feature Hobby
Stocks on the program. Racing will start at 5:00 PM
Pacific at Bakersfield with cars slated to be on the
track at 5:30 at Merced.

crisis, spectators will not be allowed to attend the
races. However, fans from all over the world can see
