We have a six race series planned for 2015, rules are at the bottom of this page. The six race dates for
2015 are 4-11, 5-9, 7-4, 8-22, 9-26, 10-24 (The entry fee for the first five races is only $75 if you
pre-enter!) It is $125 at the track.
AN ENDURO OVERHAUL, the Madera Enduro Extreme Series is here!
Madera, CA (7.13.15) - Enduro racing has always meant low cost, fun racing for most everyone that has ever been involved with this type of competition. The
Enduros came from a place where a car could be built in a week or two using wrecking yard parts then raced against 50 other cars or more in one off special
events that filled grandstands with action seeking fans.
The enduro class has evolved from bone stock cars with a single roll bar in the 80's and 90's with 50-100 car fields competing in push and shove log jam style
events into being just another bomber/hobby stock class with short car counts in the modern era.
At the LoanMart Madera Speedway, we are passionate about cost effective, fun forms of racing. We have been searching for a way to put the fun back into the
Enduro division for the fans and drivers alike, while at the same time controlling the cost of a competitive car as a priority.
For several years we have been saying it is time for a makeover with the Enduro division, and we believe the time is now or never to save this fun style of racing.
With that, the Madera Enduro Extreme Series is BORN!
We in vision having several different track layouts for the drivers to compete on during a season. Plus a new race format that allows for more fun for both fans and
drivers. We are in the process of redesigning the infield of the LoanMart Madera Speedway to allow live pits stops for our stock car races, and a drifting course.
This will allow us to build different race courses for the Enduro Extreme Series in the future at Madera once this project is complete.
For the balance of 2015, which involves three races in the 2015 championship with events on August 22nd, September 26th and October 24th, we will use a
Barrel racing challenge to level the playing field and to provide more entertainment for the fans in the Enduros. For the Pumpkin Smash on October 24th, the
event will be a three part challenge to win the BIG Pumpkin Smash Trophy and $2,000 payday!
For the August 22nd and September 26th races, drivers will qualify, run an eight lap heat race, and run a split 100 lap main event (50 laps each direction). All of
this will be run around a Barrel Race.
For the Pumpkin Smash, drivers will qualify (around the barrel), then run a barrel heat race, then run a 100 lap Barrel Race (split 50's), then run a 150 lap Enduro
race without the Barrel, but there will be a set of "S" turns on the back side of the track, plus all of the soap and pumpkins making it a slick track. 50 points will be
awarded to the winner of each challenge (50 for qualifying, 50 for the 100 lap Barrel race, and 50 for the 150 lap Pumpkin race), 48 for second, 46 for third and
on and on. The driver with the most points from the three different challenges at the end of the Pumpkin Smash is the Pumpkin Smash Champion and will earn the
$2,000 bag of cash and the 4' tall trophy!
4-Banger BONUS! If a Stock 4 cylinder car can win anyone of the three events left in 2015, there is an extra $250 bonus that will be paid to that driver!
The rules will remain the same as they are for the balance of 2015, but we are looking at cost saving measures for 2016 and beyond for the Madera Enduro
The LOANMART Madera Speedway is proud to announce a 6 race Enduro Championship for 2015!
The top TEN in points will receive awards at the 2015 LOANMART Madera Speedway awards banquet. The champion
