Play Day Set for This Saturday March 3rd at the Silver Dollar Speedway
By Troy Hennig, SDS Media Relations
CHICO, CA (2-27-12) - It been five months since the roar of race cars have made laps around the Silver Dollar Speedway. The quietness will end this Saturday, March 3rd, as we will open the pit gate at 10am and allow teams and drivers a chance to test and tune at the newly configured race track. Track officials spent most of the winter flattening and widening the race track to bring it back to its traditional quarter-mail distance on the bottom while the top is almost a 1/3 of a mile around. "We've done a lot of changes to the race track," said promoter Dennis Gage. "We are optimistic that this will provide better racing for the fans and drivers alike."
An important note is that the race haulers need to enter through the maintenance gate through the fairgrounds. The pit gate is scheduled to open at 10 am. Practice time on the track will begin at noon sharp. Practice will take place from noon to 4pm. All divisions will be welcomed. This is a great chance for drivers to test their equipment in preparation for the following weeks Silver Cup Race of Champions on March 9 and 10. Teams participating in the Sherm Toller Classic at Marysville Raceway Park on Saturday night are also encouraged to come and test before racing in honor of a great man who loved sprint car racing and did a lot to promote the sport. The pit fee for play day will be $25.00.For more information please feel free to call the track office at (530) 350 - 7275.
