Hot laps and qualifying will follow.

Delta Speedway opened up the 2024 season on April 20th with an outstanding night of competition yet familiar winners prevailed across the four divisions.

Nikko Panella of Stockton triumphed in the Non-Wing division during the first race of the year. The 2022 double track champion topped a 33-car field which led the pits as the largest division on opening night.

The winged machines in the Super 600 put on a thrilling display of action with Jeffrey Pahule of Brentwood winning a duel with Mattix Salmon of Fresno. Pahule was light at the scales, however, thrusting Salmon into the coveted win column for 2024. Multi-time champion Caden Sarale of Stockton led throughout both the winged and non-wing main events before incidents and mechanical problems dropped him out of both events.

Both the Super 600 and Non-Wing divisions return on Saturday night for 30-lap features.

The brother and sister duo of Heston and Hayden Stepps of Oakdale won in the youth divisions at Delta Speedway in race no. 1. Heston Stepps won the 20-lap Jr. Sprints feature while older sister Hayden won the Restricted 25-lap contest. Jr. Sprints will again race for 20-laps on Saturday night with Restricted staging a 25-lap feature.
