The California Flat Track Association (CFTA) is bringing a new level of professionalism to flat track racing on the West Coast in 2014, with its second year of its King of the Valley Series. In 2013, the new series attracted top professional and amateur talent on the West Coast as well as major talent from other parts of the U.S.
"We were blessed with a phenomenal turnout of top pro riders in our first year at Chowchilla. AMA Grand National riders Shayna Texter, Briar Bauman, Jethro Halbert, Kayl Kolkman, Rob Pearson and Mikey Martin all competed in CFTA races," stated CFTA owner Randy Kremlacek. "Our goal in 2014 is to continue on our success and provide the best race track experience possible for our riders".
The pro motorcycle purse will be $1,500 and the pro quad purse $500 for each of the six events, making CFTA the top paying series on the West Coast. CFTA recognizes the financial burden of professional flat track racing and endeavors to put money in racer’s pockets.
Chowchilla Speedway is a well-groomed 1/3 mile clay, blue groove track. Combine nine degree banked turns, super sticky clay and a robust quad program and the result is an extremely fast and wide racetrack.
Chowchilla is conveniently located in the middle of the San Joaquin Valley, pulling racers from up and down the West Coast as well Nevada and Arizona. The facility has spacious pits, excellent track lighting and a well-trained, professional staff. The emphasis is on families, sportsmanship and fair racing.
In addition to the high profile professional show, CFTA also delivers quality racing for youth and amateur riders in the afternoon and expert riders racing at night. CFTA was specifically founded to rebuild youth flat track racing and grow the sport, and its ongoing commitment to that goal is steadfast. The organization creates an atmosphere of fun, professionalism and competition, plus is the perfect event for sponsors to highlight their products and services.
