CORONA, California (July 2, 2013) – They’ve turned into coneheads!
It happened so suddenly there was no chance to prevent it.

There’ll be no going back, either, because series co-founder and competition director Bill Rozhon said turning everyone into coneheads is “probably the best thing we’ve done with the series” that returns to action July 20 at Madera Speedway in central California.
