Placerville Speedway returns to action this Saturday night

By Gary Thomas

Placerville, CA – September 15, 2020…Following an extended break the always exciting Placerville Speedway returns to life this Saturday September 19th with the first event in over one month taking place.

Four divisions will be on hand with the Winged 360 Sprint Cars making their return after nearly two months off, along with Pure Stocks, Mini Trucks and the Nor-Cal Dwarf Car Association. With no additional sponsorship money coming in as of press time, teams will be competing for a 50% purse during the night.

So far it has been a season of parity for the Thompson’s Family of Dealerships Winged 360 Sprint Cars, with six winners in the six events contested. The Pure Stocks and Mini Trucks have also seen a long layoff, while the Dwarf Cars have competed on two occasions at the high-banked red-clay bullring this year.  

The grandstands continue to be closed for spectators and all pit area guidelines remain in place. For a refresher of the pit area guidelines visit
