TOYOTA SouthWest Superlates
Short track Superlate Model stock cars on the fast 2 1/2 mile road course
"BRINGING THE FUN BACK TO RACING" "TIGHT CLOSE RACING ACTION"
If you love the fender rubbing, bumper banging, close racing action, and the loud thunder of V8 Stock Cars, or the high-speed precision driving, shifting gears of road course racing, then this is the ultimate series for you! Whether you're a driver, team owner, sponsor or fan, the SWS Racing Series at Willow Springs Raceway is the place to be with your family & friends.
The SouthWest Superlate Series is growing by leaps & bounds moving into it's 2nd full year of competition. Drivers such as legand NASCAR Southwest Tour Champion Ron Esau, Willow Springs Super Production Champion Steve Rzesnowiecky, and SCCA Champion Gayle Chase come out along with some new young guns like 2013 SWS Champion Cory Fancy, Stephan Rzesnowiecky, Andrew Muscanell, Andrew Porter, George Atkinson Jr. & Dana Moore all trying to put their names in the record books.
We're looking forward and can't be more excited about the future of the TOYOTA SWS Racing Series, for 2014 with the addition of the SWS Super Trucks and the ever so popular INEX Legends 2014 is going to be a year to remember...
The 2014 schedule consists of 8 races starting April 19th and runs once a month through Dec., ending with our Winter Classic on Dec. 13. The first seven races are for points and the Dec. Winter Classic is a non points race, making this an open show for everyone to go all out for win!
One of the biggest highlights to the SWS Series is our 5 lap shootout for the win! The Superlates run 15 laps and we throw a manditory red, the leader at this point will draw a number between 1-6 for an invert, shaking things up for the all out 5 lap shootout. This has proven to make some of the most exciting finishes weve seen.
The SWS Series is designed to use existing oval track stock cars, Superlate Models, Late Models & Tour type cars. Using these existing cars, this allows teams to change there cars from oval track to road racing with minimal cost and not having to build a special road race car to compete... In this economy, we understand money is tight and teams are having a hard time, so we want to do everything we can to make this affordable to race as well as keep your maintanence cost down as well. The SWS Series uses a 2 barrel carburator, this is inexpensive and keeps your engine Rpm down, a 20 lap race is just long enough to keep it exciting but also keeping your tire & maitenence cost down and we know how hard it is for most teams to Friday testing and the additional cost that it takes, so we are eliminating Friday testing to keep your weekend cost down for all teams.
The Super Trucks are a combination of Spec trucks and Speed trucks, again using what is already out there and not changing them, makes it very affordable for these teams to come out and race. And talk about a show! The trucks always put on a fun and exciting show!
INEX Legends was a no brainer! Lots of great teams that like or want to go road racing, being the only road coarse in SO CA now under INEX sanctioning, this allows legend teams to be able to get their road coarse points without having to tow half way across the state.
With a good purse, product sponsorships and a relaxed atmoshphere making the TOYOTA SWS Series a fun day at the races again.
The purse payout is payed that day at the end of day, no waiting for your check to show up in the mail.
Each race will be broadcast "LIVE" on our website, hosted by Low Budget TV. With Tommy Mason & Jeffrey Best bringing you all the lap by lap action, with driver interviews and highlights posted after each race.
