Countdown to Octane Fest June 6-9, 2013:
Sprint Cars Come to Octane Fest
Spectators at this year’s Octane Fest will be treated to a brand new event that will have race fans on the edge of their seats. The King of the West Sprint Car races will bring aggressive, high-speed, dirt track mayhem to the Rattlesnake Raceway on Friday and Saturday nights, June 7 and 8.
The sprint cars, outfitted with 410-cubic-inch, 900-horsepower engines, are known for lightning-quick accelerations and top speeds of up to 140 mph. The racers will lap the quarter-mile dirt track at top speeds, drifting around corners, making tight passes and opening the throttle in the straightaways. The action-packed racing makes for spectacular crashes and neck-and-neck, crowd-pleasing finishes.
The King of the West Sprint Car race is part of a circuit of sprint car races that includes stops across northern California. Apart from the sprint car races, Octane Fest will continue to feature fan favorites such as Monster Truck Jamboree including a Freestyle Nevada vs. California Motocross jump show and the Lucas Oil Drag Races featuring a jet duel in the desert: The Beast jet car vs. Jet-Lagg diesel truck.
