Placerville, CA – July 18, 2018…The C&H Veteran Ent. presents Hunt Magnetos Wingless Tour begins the start of four races to go in the 2018 season with the final appearance of the year at the Placerville Speedway this Saturday July 21.
The night of action at the familiar red clay quarter-mile marks round eight for the C&H Veteran Ent. presents Hunt Magnetos Wingless Tour. The ultra-competitive campaign has seen six different winners in the seven events held thus far with several drivers knocking on the door of their first triumph.
“We look forward to having the C&H Veteran Ent. presents Hunt Magnetos Wingless Tour at Placerville Speedway on Saturday,” said Russell Motorsports Inc. President Scott Russell. “We’ve had some great wingless sprint car racing in Placerville when we have presented it and we’re expecting more of that this weekend. It should be a great show pairing it with our Thompson’s Auto Group Winged 360 Sprint Cars to give fans the best of both worlds.”
The only other visit of the season to Placerville Speedway in April was picked off by Stockton driver DJ Johnson. Scott Hall, Shawn Jones, Cody Spencer and Nick Larson comprised the top-five. The most recent C&H Veteran Ent. presents Hunt Magnetos Wingless Tour event in Stockton saw Matt Stewart become a first-time winner, but the other storyline was the fact that previous point leader Scott Hall suffered engine issues and was unable to start the A-main.
Shawn Jones brought home a runner up finish in Stockton and has moved back atop the point standings with four events remaining. Jones captured his first career C&H Veteran Ent. presents Hunt Magnetos Wingless Tour feature victory back in March at the Silver Dollar Speedway. The versatile driver also ran up front last weekend at the Placerville Speedway while driving a Dwarf Car, until issues left him with a DNF.
