Rico Abreu Racing Supporting Camp Fire Victims
Chico, CA (April 18, 2019) …. St. Helena, CA sprint car star Rico Abreu will headline a long list of talented drivers set to kick things off Friday night, April 19th, at the Silver Dollar Speedway in Chico. While Abreu, 27-years-old, is mainly known for his on-track performance, those who know him on a personal level, see the caring and giving side also. With that said, Abreu is coming to Chico earlier than normal on Friday and will help give away enough meat to give to each family still dispersed from the Camp Fire and still living at the Silver Dollar Fairgrounds. “We wanted to show that we cared and are donating all this meat to the families that are still living at the Fairgrounds,” said Abreu. “The Camp Fire was so devasting that we wanted to do something on behalf of Rico Abreu Racing and Silver Dollar Speedway.” On top of the free food, each person will be given Free race tickets to the event that night.
Friday night will also serve as a fun-filled-family night of entertainment as we host our Annual Easter Egg hunt for kids 11 and under. We are also anticipating an appearance by the Easter Bunny.
Our long-time friends and supporters of the Silver Dollar Speedway Mike and Carol McCann, owners of Cherry St. Mini Storage, are adding an extra $500 to the winner of the 25-lap winged 360 sprint car main event. The race will now pay $2,000 to win.
Pit gate opens at 4 PM. Front grandstand gate opens at 6 PM. Adult general admission is $15.00. Seniors (62+) and juniors (12-15) and military with proper i.d. are $13.00. Children (6-11) are $6.00. Kids five and under are FREE. Parking for fans is FREE. Racing is slated to start at 7 PM.
To avoid standing in long lines on race night to purchase tickets, there is an on-line ticket option located at www.silverdollarspeedway.com so fans can buy tickets in advance.
Competitors are encouraged to turn on Martin Luther King Blvd and then turn onto Silver Dollar Way by Costco to enter the back side of the Silver Dollar Fairgrounds.
