Petaluma, CA – August 21, 2018…For the final time in 2018 the C&H Veteran Ent. presents Hunt Magnetos Wingless Tour will invade the cool confines of Petaluma Speedway this Saturday August 25 for the prestigious Soares Classic.

“This will be the seventh annual Soares Classic and we’re proud of how the event has grown,” commented Petaluma Speedway promoter and Hunt Wingless Tour coordinator Rick Faeth. “Fifty-laps for the C&H Veteran Ent. presents Hunt Wingless Tour will showcase the talents of this great class and its competitors. The event will pay $1,500 to win and we’ve increased the starting money to $200 so we hope to see a healthy car count on Saturday.”
