MADERA, CALIFORNIA (March 27, 2019) – Madera Speedway and the North State Modified Series are excited to announce the North State Street Stock vs. Madera Hobby Stock Challenge Series. The three race series will coincide with the North State Modified events at Madera Speedway providing for a full night of action on the one-third mile speedway. Races will take place on April 13th, June 15th, and August 3rd.
The April 13th opener will pay a guaranteed $750 to win and $100 to start. Madera Hobby Stock rules will apply include Hoosier 970 tires on all four corners. A Dash for Cash is planned along with heat races and the main event. For the featured North State Modified race, their season opening 60 lap contest will pay $2000 to win.
