Marysville, CA (March 26, 2017) – A big night of
racing is scheduled for this Saturday night, April
1st, and that is no joke. Marysville Raceway will host
point race #2 featuring five predominant divisions led
by the IMCA Sport Mods, winged 360 sprints, economy
sprints, hobby stocks and the popular Dwarf Cars.
Just two weeks prior, the raceway hosted a
successful point night number one. The car count
swelled above 50 and the final checkered flag of the
night waved before 10 PM. A point of emphasis this
year at the raceway is to get the nights racing action
over at a decent hour for the families in attendance.
The pit gate is scheduled to open at 3 PM. The
front grandstand gate will open at 5 PM. Qualifying
for the winged sprint cars is scheduled to start at
6:15 PM. Racing will follow qualifying. Adult ticket
price is $13.00. Junior, seniors and military with ID
is $10.00. Kids are $6.00 and those five and under are

have a shot at parking their car in victory lane
The winged sprint cars will be
led by Oroville’s Heath Hall, Chico’s Brad Bumgarner

division saw a resurgence with over 10 cars competing
for the win during the opening night race. Brian
Compton dominated the event.

racing and usually a high car count. Look for these
guys to put on a great show.
