FloRacing will have coverage of the ARCA Menards Series West 150-lap race while MAVTV cameras will roll for the open wheel action as they thunder around the fastest one-third mile in the west.

ARCA racing returned to Madera in October 2023 for the first time since 2009, with Texan Kaden Honeycutt prevailing over a field full of Madera Speedway 51FIFTY Jr. Late Model graduates. The 50th Harvest Classic attracted the healthiest Super Modified field in many years at the Madera Fairgrounds, with Idaho’s Bryan Warf topping Indianapolis 500 veteran Davey Hamilton, Sr. for the win. Combining the oldest touring stock car series on the west coast with open wheel speed will made for a unique and exciting event at Madera Speedway.

Open Wheels have joined the ARCA Menards Series West for events at other venues in California throughout the past twenty years as a support division. In 2024, they share the spotlight as co-headliners for race fans of all ages and of all forms of racing to come together and celebrate motorsports in the central valley!

Madera Speedway hosts nine rounds of the MAVTV-televised Pro Late Models, 51FIFTY Jr. Late Models, INEX Legends, and INEX Bandoleros in 2024. Madera will also be home to a new four-race series for Super Late Models, the annual Pumpkin Smash Halloween Bash, and many other special events.
