New F4 Series at LoanMart Madera Speedway


Madera, CA – The 2017 schedule for the Madera Speedway has been released and it will celebrate 46 years of racing at the speedway and this schedule includes a new fun for all series called the F4’s.

The F4 series is built around a team driving format that features 30 lap main events with a driver change at the half way point in front of the crowd. The cars are built from front wheel drive four cylinder street cars in a “Claimer” format. Meaning any fan or crew member can buy any car at the end of any race event and race it the following race event.

The F4 series is built on the idea of “FUN” on a budget, and it is designed for the novice driver to partner with another driver to gain driving skills and have some racing fun on a budget. “We plan to really promote the F4 series as a fun, and exciting way to be involved in motorsports with a priority on competitor smiles” Kenny Shepherd.
