Paul Hawes Memorial Sprint Spooktacular

(Marysville, CA 10/27/20)…This past May, the Marysville Raceway was saddened to learn that former track Promoter Paul Hawes had passed away from Cancer.  Hawes, along with his wife Kathy, made numerous improvements to the racing venue throughout their time promoting the races.  With approval from the family, we have decided to race in his honor this Saturday night, October 31, naming the event the Paul Hawes Memorial Sprint Spooktacular.

Four divisions headline this event led by the popular winged 360 sprint cars, wingless spec sprints, sport mods and Crate Sprints.  A normal purse will be offered to all the classes competing.  The winged sprint cars will qualify, run heats and mains.  The other three divisions will draw a pill to determine their starting spot in the heats. Troy White is offering $50 for the hard charger in the wingless main event.

The Raceway has been given permission to allow the first 100 fans into the main grandstands on race nights.  Note time change. The front gate will open at 5 PM.  Once the 100-person quota has been filled, the Raceway will stop allowing more fans in.  No in and out privileges will be allowed. Pit gate for the competitors will open an hour earlier at 2 PM.  Social distancing will be required.  Cars are scheduled to hit the track at 5 PM sharp.

Adult tickets are $17, Junior and Senior $14 and kids $6 for Saturday nights race.  Fans are encouraged to wear masks and keep social distance.  The vast grandstands provide plenty of space to spread out.

Flo Racing continues to be our official streaming partner of Marysville Raceway.  Without their generous support, we would not have been able to host this event because of the limited access of fans into the main grandstands.  Please visit for more details on how to subscribe to all their racing content.

Novelty booth is restocking the remaining Silver Dollar Speedway and Marysville Raceway merchandise for sale.  It could be your final chance to grab some racetrack swag.  New concession items will be available for the fans in attendance to purchase.
