Paul Hawes Memorial Sprint Car Spooktacular This Saturday; $2,500 to Win 360 Sprint Car Main


(Marysville, CA 10/23/23)…The original Sprint Car Spooktacular, returns this Saturday night, October 28th. This long running event features an all-open wheel division of race cars. Led by the popular winged 360 sprints, the track will also host Crate Sprints, Wingless Spec Sprints, and Lightning Sprints. “These four divisions are a great way to close out the racing season at Marysville Raceway,” said track president Dennis Gage. “It has been an amazing year of racing, and we are thrilled to host the last race of the season in honor of my friend and former promoter of this great facility, Paul Hawes.”


Once again, H&H Trenching is presenting the Paul Hawes Memorial this Saturday night, part of the Sprint Car Spooktacular tribute to Halloween. With the generosity of Jeremy Hawes and H&H Trenching, extra money has been added to the overall purse this Saturday night, October 28th. “We are thankful for Jeremy and offering the bonus money to the competitors this Saturday night,” said Gage. “Paul and his wife Kathy were the backbone of this facility for many years, and we are happy to continue their vision. I know they are proud of Jeremy and his financial support of this race.”


With the extra money from Hawes, the winner of the winged 360 sprint car race will now pay $2,500. Extra money will also be trickled down throughout the top five in the main event. Other divisions will earn extra bonus money dependent on the car counts.
