Billy Wallace will look to get back to his winning ways this Saturday.  The Grass Valley driver holds a 53-point edge over Yuba City’s Korey Lovell.  Wallace has two main event wins this year.  Lovell grabbed one win a few weeks ago.  Kevin Lovell sits in third and is just five-points behind Korey.  Pat Harvey sits in the fourth spot.  Rookie sensation RJ Baker holds down the fifth spot.

Can Brett Youngman stay perfect?  So far, the Crate Sprint Champion has won all four main events in 2021.  Quietly, Wyatt Van Lare has moved into the second spot in points.  Van Lare is only 15 points back.  David Simms is just one-point back of Van Lare.  Cameron Haney Jr. sits in the fourth spot.  Mike Ballentine rounds out the top five.

Limited Late Models will roll into Marysville for the fifth time this season.  Jay Norton has won three of the previous four main events and holds a six-point edge over Dan Brown Jr.  Third place Rod Oliver is only 10-points back of Norton.  With just three championship nights remaining for the Limited Late Models, every point will be a premium for these drivers from here on out.

The Vintage Hardtops are set to make their second and final trip to the raceway.  These die hard racers continue to preserve the past with their coupe style cars and exciting style of driving.
