Outlaws Set For Stockton Dirt Track Debut
STOCKTON, Calif. – There aren’t many better ways to break in a new track than to host the World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series.
That’s exactly what Stockton 99 Dirt Track is doing on Friday when the premier sprint car series in the country will welcome another track to the California fraternity.
“As long as we can get more race tracks in California I think that’s great,” Jason Sides said. “It’ll be good to go there and see what it’s all about. I hear it’s a big track so another big track in California like Calistoga, that’d be great.”
Stockton 99 Speedway, which is located a few miles away from the San Joaquin Fairgrounds, is the sister track to the new three-eighths-mile dirt track at the fairgrounds. Stockton 99 Dirt Track was built in the infield of the old horse racing track at the fairgrounds.
“It’s going to be new for everybody,” Joey Saldana said. “I think it’s great to have a new venue. I just hope the fans support it and it makes a stop we have every year with the World of Outlaws at Stockton.”
