    Season Opener Tickets Now Available

    It's been nearly nine months since we heard the roar of horsepower on the high banks at Riverside International Speedway and the wait is almost over. Saturday, June 8 will see the kick off for our 50th anniversary season when Ceilidh Honda Presents The Triple 50s.

    This throwback-style event will see the Parts for Trucks Pro Stock Tour competitors go door-handle to door-handle in a 150-lap feature race - with a twist...The field will be stopped on track after the completion of laps 50 and 100 and a random draw will determine if the running order will be inverted fully, partially, or not at all. The race results will be scored and points awarded in the order the cars cross the finish line at lap 150. The leader of laps 50 and 100 will receive a $500.00 bonus in addition to the winnings they earn based on their finishing order.

    This exciting event will also see a brief ceremony marking the opening of the 50th season and fans will find an enhanced at-track experience with special displays and decorations paying tribute to the past five decades at Riverside International Speedway.

    The Napa Sportsman Series will kick off their season as well with the Henry's AUTOPRO 75.

    Advance reserved and general admission tickets are now available for this event. Reserved seating is sold only in advance, i.e. not at the gate on race day. There is plenty of free spectator and RV pariking for this event.
