WERC Racers Dash Into the Dark at Willow Springs Raceway in May

Willow Springs Intl. Raceway and Buttonwillow Raceway have at least one thing in common: They’re both in the middle of nowhere, and when the sun dips below the horizon, it gets dark. Really dark. They’re so far out in the boonies, there isn’t even any light pollution — at least until the WERC series shows up!
Both tracks are challenging in their own ways. Dropping tires off at Buttonwillow produces dust so thick it can be deadly to cars. At least two WERC cars were totaled at Buttonwillow in April.
Willow Springs’ primary challenge is that it is one of the fastest tracks in the country, with average lap speeds of more than 80 mph, even for momentum cars. Couple high speeds with low light and you are in for a challenging evening, which is exactly what 33 WERC drivers came for in May.
