“The idea for a universal track championship has long been an idea that we’ve given merit to. By combining different disciplines such as weekly winged racing, tour racing, as well as non-winged competition we intend to provide the racers, marketing partners, and most importantly the fans with the best quality of drivers and fields over the course of the season,” commented Petaluma Speedway Promoter Rick Faeth.

Longtime speedway voice Ron Lingron added. “Promoter Rick Faeth has again taken the traditionalist apple cart and turned it on its side with this universal track championship point’s chase. Never has this been done before to my knowledge, combining winged and non-winged points across three different formats and organizations with the Petaluma Speedway Adobe being the common thread. Every single injected 360 race now matters and it’s not a small prize drivers will be after. Competitors will now be looking forward to each and every injected race on the schedule, because they all count now.”

Future sprint car hall of famer Andy Forsberg stated. “Petaluma Speedway is the most old school type track California has to offer. This schedule reminds me of the Louie Vermiel days of NAARC in the early 80’s when both winged and non-winged races counted towards the championship. Legendary drivers like Leroy VanConnet, Chuck Gurney, and Brent Kaeding won championships doing both. Now we get to see a new crop of legends trying to do the same thing in 2020.”
