It has been great to get back out to the tracks in 2021 and see the fans as well as the racing teams and drivers. This season has been more memorable than most with a renewed appreciation of the sport of racing after not having the opportunity to get out and race in 2020. The NCMA sprint cars have one more race left this season on October 9th at Shasta Speedway in Anderson, CA which is where the season began. With the new rule changes the points race has remained very close and actually the two top teams of #77 David Burchett and #2A of Rob Hammond have been locked into a first place battle until last weekend. Coming into the last race of the season the top four positions are only separated by 50 points and only 8 points separates 1st & 2nd.
We look forward to racing at Shasta Speedway, which is a great facility with wonderful staff for the season closer. The weather in early October looks to be great and we hope that the NCMA fans will come out and support the track and the sprint car program.
NCMA’s NEWLY SANCTIONED CALIFORNIA PAVEMENT SPRINT CAR CHALLENGE SERIES READY TO GO!!!!!! NEXT RACE SCHEDULED FOR JULY 17th AT MADERA SPEEDWAY in Madera, CA!!!
NCMA in very excited to return to Madera Speedway which the series hasn’t been to in almost 2 years. Unfortunately the first race schedule for earlier this year in May had to be postponed due to ongoing challenges with COVID-19 and difficulties for racers getting parts in order to get their race cars ready. All that now appears to be behind us and we are raring to go. The NCMA Sprinter got off to a good start at Shasta Speedway on June 19th and even though the outside temp was in the 110 degree range the cars put on a great show for the fans and the racers had a great time. NCMA welcomed back the dynamic duo of David and Millie Todd who are our officials this year and we are so thankful to have them.
Austin Carter in his #2 sprints wins overall show and David Burchett #77B take first for the NCMA legal sprinters.

As with many other traveling series the NCMA Sprint Car groups was effected by COVID-19 and after careful consideration chose to cancel the 2020 season. This is the first time in the series history that we didn’t compete in at least one race somewhere and also won’t have a series champion.
Looking forward to 2021 we’ve already began talking to tracks and promoters to book races and should have our schedule out sometime around the first of the year. Thank you for supporting our series and the promoters and local tracks in California to keep Saturday night short track racing alive.
NCMA will be holding a series of meetings as we make plans for the 2021 season and hope that we get good particpation so we get good input as we think about next year and beyond. Keep an eye out for us on our website and on our Facebook page. https://www.facebook.com/groups/842163562531072
