The second season of the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series-sanctioned action will see ten different points on the half-mile, quarter-mile, and one-eighth mile tracks.

The 2014 slate will allow the teams to compete for points championships at both the Irwindale Speedway and Kern County Raceway Park.  These include NASCAR Pro Late Models, NASCAR CITGO Lubricants Late Models, Street Stocks, INEX Legends and INEX Bandoleros with complimenting schedules.  The schedule also compliments the SPEARS SRL Southwest Tour and the SRL Legends Tour.

After highly successful appearances by both the SPEARS SRL Southwest Tour and the NASCAR K&N Pro Series, West in 2013, KCRP will welcome each division back for two races.  The SRL will hit the half-mile with the season opening event on April 5th and again on November 1st.  The NASCAR K&N West will run 150 lap shows during Memorial Day and Labor Day weekends.

Other highlights for 2014 will be the return of the 911 Series, which will see various first responder agencies from across Kern County in identically prepared Mini Stocks on the track's quarter-mile.  The popular Faster Pastor races during Faith & Family Night will again take place on October 18th as well.

Fans will have a chance to be a part of the action as well with the Rusty Wallace Racing Experience making four weekend stops at the venue.

July 5th will see another huge Zambelli Fireworks Spectacular over the sky above the track while on-track action will be highlighted by a special 100 lap Pro Late Model feature.  October 31st-November 1st will be the inaugural Fall Shootout with a 100 lap NASCAR CITGO Lubricants Late Model race joining the SRL Southwest Tour.

All regular NASCAR CITGO Lubricants Late Model and NASCAR Pro Late Model races will carry $15 admission in 2014, while special events will have various pricing as advertised and noted.

A Winter Series will kick off the season with a pair of shows for a variety of race cars on the quarter-mile and one-eighth mile tracks with admission just $10 for race fans!  The headlining division will be Open Comp Stock Cars where any full size, safe race car is legal as long as they are shod with IMCA Hoosier G60-15 tires.  Winter Series races will take place on January 11th and February 22nd with races in the afternoon.

Tickets will be for sale online soon, with season tickets sales to be followed by single race tickets.
