FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Kids 11 and Under Free for Bike Night
Marysville, CA (Aug 5, 2018) – Marysville Raceway is always kid friendly. This Saturday night is no exception. On August 11th, kids 11 and under will be admitted free into the grandstands. Kids will also receive a coupon for a free soda and hot dog to use at our concessions. On top of that, after the heat races are completed on the track, the kids who bring their bikes from home will be given the chance to race amongst other kids their same age on the front stretch of the dirt track. Once the bike races are completed, we will raffle off two new bikes, one boy and one girls’ bike, to the kids in attendance.
The pit gate will open at 3 PM while the front grandstand gate opens at 5 PM. Race cars on the track at 6 PM for wheel pack.
Adult admission into the grandstands is $13.00. Juniors, seniors and military with ID are just $11.00. Kids 11 and under are FREE. As always, parking is FREE. Parents remember to bring your child’s bike and helmet, so they can race on the front stretch. Trophies and ribbons will be handed out at the finish line after each age group has raced. The boy’s bike has been donated by Darrel Milligan, who works at the Raceway. The girl’s bike is being donated by Brent Cooper and the Marysville Raceway staff.
Reno’s Mike Monahan is the new point leader in the sprint car division. Both Kenny Allen and Jeremy Hawes were disqualified from the previous main event for on and off-track altercations. With the disqualification, both drivers had points were taken away. Monahan now holds a 27-points edge over Kenny Allen and 45-points over Hawes.
Blackout Fight Gear & Apparel has come on board the rest of the season to sponsor the winged 360 sprint car qualifying. The nights fastest qualifier will earn $100 from Blackout Fight Gear & Apparel.
On the flip side, the best championship battle is happening in the Crate Sprint Car division. Cameron Haney and Jaylon Deas are tied for the top spot. Each driver has 267 points. Throw in the competitive and consistent Mike Sayre who is just one point behind at 266 points. The first tie breaker is main event wins. As of now, Deas would be the champion because he has one win this season. Both Haney and Sayre have not won.
Shannon Collins leads the Hobby Stock division. Collins leads the division by 12-points over Mel Byers. Jeremiah Creedon is only 15-points back of Collins. Five drivers have attended the previous four championship events led by Collins, Byers and Creedon. Kyle Cheney and Will Harmon should also be commended for making each start this season.
Two traveling divisions will add to the nights racing program. The Vintage Hardtops and Racesaver 305 Sprints.
However, tonight is all about the future of our sport. Kids need to enjoy this night. They also need to continue the long-lasting tradition of racing at Marysville Raceway. Hopefully, some of these kids will want to develop into racers like their on track hero’s or become life long fans of the sport and sit in the grandstands rooting on their favorite drivers.
