Championship Auto Racing Returns This Saturday

It is time to get back to the action track of the West.  After a month off, the stars and cars return this Saturday night, June 26th, for the eighth championship point show of the season.  The four-division show will be headlined by the Hobby Stocks, Winged 360 sprints, Crate Sprints and Lightning Sprints.

Pit gate for the competitors will open at 3 PM.  Front grandstand gate will open at 5 PM.  Cars will hit the action-packed quarter-mile oval dirt track around 6 PM.

To make things even easier, Marysville Raceway unveiled a new online ticket sale platform for the fans.  Please visit our website and then click on the tickets tab.  A new page will open and from there you can buy your tickets.  Tickets purchased online are $17.00 for adults, $15.00 for juniors and seniors and $8.00 for kids.  The $2.00 fee associated with each purchase is included in our advertised price.

Grass Valley’s Billy Wallace continues to lead the points battle.  Wallace has suffered through engine trouble as of late and hopes to be at full strength this Saturday night.  If not, the Lovell Bros. are nipping at his heal.  Kevin Lovell sits second and is just 34-points behind Wallace.  Korey Lovell, who is the most recent main event winner for weekly point racing, holds down the third spot.  Crowd favorite Pat Harvey is fourth in points.  Rookie RJ Baker from Orland holds down the fifth spot.

The Hobby Stocks will compete for the sixth time this season.  Jacob Johnson leads this cast of racing characters.  Johnson holds a 17-pooint edge over former two-time track champ Jesse Van Roekel.  Recent winner Jerry Bartlett sits third.  Howard law and Shannon Collins round out the top five.  The parity in this division is so close when it comes to on track performance and finishes.  The top five is just separated by 25-points.

Defending Crate Sprint track champion Brett Youngman holds a slim seven-point edge over Jason Ballantine.  This is the third point race of the year for the Crates.  Youngman has won the previous two.  David Sims and Cameron Haney Jr. have won the two most recent shows at Silver Dollar Speedway and are always up near the front.  Rookie Wyatt Van Lare sits third and has impressed the track with his driving skills.

The Lightning Sprints make their first appearance of the season this Saturday at Marysville Raceway.
