RAIN CANCELS CALIFORNIA LIGHTNING SPRINTS FOR 2ND WEEK IN A ROW!
(Torrance, CA, March 21, 2018) For the second week in a row, the California Lightning Sprint Car Series historic 25th anniversary season opener has fell victim to rain. Last Saturday, the original season opener was rained out at the Bakersfield Speedway.
