CHICO, CA (10-7-13) - Keeping with the tradition of Friday night racing, the Silver Dollar Speedway will host their end of the year awards banquet Friday night, November 8th, at the Feather Falls Casino in Oroville. This marks the second year in a row that our Championship banquet will be held at Feather Falls Casino and Lodge. The no host cocktails will start flowing at 6:30 pm with dinner to start at 7:30 pm. Around 8:15 pm the award presentations will begin.
This year a record number of eight different divisions raced for a Championship at the Silver Dollar Speedway.

The tickets are $40.00 per person and need to be purchased by November 1st.
Numerous Champions will be crowned at the awards banquet. Roseville driver Sean Becker will be on hand to receive his third Silver Dollar Speedway driving title while his team will receive their second championship in a row. Repeat champions seem to be the theme this year.

Sacramento's Brian Compton (hobby stock) and Marysville's Kyle Standley (economy sprints) are first time champions at Silver Dollar Speedway.
Other awards to be handed out will include the David Tarter Rookie of the Year Award, the Sprint Car Dedication Award, the Kevin Ward Inspirational Award and Rookie of the Year awards in all divisions.Next Monday, October 14th, tickets go on sale for the 2014 Gold Cup Race of Champions.
