The Tulare County Fairgrounds based venue will continue to operate as a special events facility with 10 total weekends of competition slated for this coming campaign. Highlights of the schedule include the annual World of Outlaws double header in the Spring, a return of the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour, as well as two separate Trophy Cup weekends.

The season will open with a Kings of Thunder Winged 360 Sprint Car Series headlined show on Saturday February 27th, before the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour presented by MAVTV Motorsports Network invades the one-third mile clay oval on Friday March 12th.

The World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series two-step will then finish off the month on Friday and Saturday March 26th and 27th.

After not being able to host the Trophy Cup this year the Thunderbowl is pleased to announce that a make-up event is set to be held on Memorial Day weekend next season. Abreu Vineyards Trophy Cup 27 presented by Rudeen Racing will occur on Thursday, Friday and Saturday May 27th, 28th and 29th. Later on in the year Abreu Vineyards Trophy Cup 28 presented by Rudeen Racing will tackle the track on Thursday, Friday and Saturday October 21st, 22nd and 23rd.

Thunderbowl Raceway will also work closely together with nearby Keller Auto Speedway in Hanford during the 2021 season. In fact, the annual “Peter Murphy Classic” will be contested at both tracks on the same weekend this coming year. Opening night of the event will take place in Hanford on Friday May 14th, before moving over to Tulare the following night on Saturday May 15th. More details about the race will be out soon.

“We are definitely excited with how the schedule came out for 2021,” commented Thunderbowl Raceway Promoter Steve Faria. “Bringing the World of Outlaws and ASCS National Tour back to the track will be a great thing and we’re thrilled to have the opportunity to host a pair of Trophy Cups next season. We look forward to working with Keller Auto Speedway Promoter Peter Murphy over in Hanford to help grow the sport down here in the Central Valley as well.”
