(PETERSEN MEDIA- Aptos, CA, )- One of the most exciting tracks in California will get a visit from the storied Civil War Series pres. by Flowmaster on Saturday night as the long running series will make it’s first ever appearance at the high banked 1/3 mile oval in Tulare, CA alongside the King of the West-NARC 410 series.

Saturday night’s inaugural visit to the central valley’s speed plant will mark the first of two visits by the series in 2018 with the second coming quick as the action will pick back up on May 5th.
