Irwindale Speedway officials have announced that the Agoura Hills-based racer and business owner Tim Huddleston, along with Bob Bruncati and the Justice Brothers, will continue to produce Thursday Night Thunder on the drag strip and Weekly Racing Series events on the Half-Mile Speedway beginning February 1.

Officials announced in August 2017 that the "The Fastest Half Mile West of The Mississippi” and event facility in Irwindale, California, had set the final date of operation as January 31, 2018.

"We are excited to keep the amazing events of the past and bring new exciting shows to the families and fans that have joined us over the years," Tim Huddleston said. "Jim Cohan and 211 Entertainment were instrumental in this transition and I'm thankful they kept the track running the last five years."

Weekly Racing Series will take the green flag on March 10 with a full season schedule. The facility also remains available for studio and private rental. Stay tuned for additional announcements in coming weeks.

Thursday Night Thunder opens February 1 at 5 p.m. (Gates open at 4 p.m.). The first 500 attendees will receive a special promotional gift to “celebrate a new beginning,” say officials.

Irwindale Event Center includes Irwindale Speedway (banked, paved 1/3- and 1/2-mile oval tracks) and Irwindale Dragstrip (1/8-mile drag strip sanctioned by the NHRA).
