If you’re an open wheel race fan, these next two weeks are definitely races you won’t want to miss at Placerville Speedway at the El Dorado County Fairgrounds.

On Saturday, the mighty Midgets and Midget Lites of the Bay Cities Racing Association will join the winged Sprint Cars at the speedway, as the 2013 Red Hawk Casino-Hoosier Tires-Coors Light Championship Season continues.

While tomorrow’s event will provide plenty of excitement on its own, it’s a prelude to another big night of racing on Aug. 10 when the Civil War Sprint Car Series returns to the Speedway.

Point leader Andy Forsberg will look to continue his trek toward his fifth championship title at the Speedway. After scoring his second feature win July 27, Forsberg sits in the lead by a 38-point margin over Placerville’s Andy Gregg in the championship point standings while Jimmy Trulli of Placerville is third, trailing the top spot by 43 points.

Sitting in the fourth position is Greg DeCaires, who recently had a win streak of three consecutive events.  DeCaires is currently 87 points out of the lead position. Rounding out the top five is Mike Benson with 101 points. Listed in the top 10 are Justin Johnson of Shingle Springs at sixth place, Justin Sanders in seventh, James Sweeney of Placerville in eighth, Adam Walters in ninth and Charlie Cagle in 10th place.

In addition to the track action, the annual Jack London Bash Picnic and Hall of Fame for the BCRA will take place at lawn of the fairgrounds. From 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., racers and fans are welcome to attend the event, as a barbecue lunch will be served that includes tri-tip and hot dogs Tickets for the event that benefits BCRA can be purchased at bcraracing.com.

In the Midget Lites division, defending champion Scott Kinney is at the top of the point ladder with previous Placerville winner Bradley Dillard in second place. Stuart Goehring is third followed by Brian Corso, Dakota Albright and Craig Dillard.

The grandstands open at 5 p.m. with ADCO Driveline Qualifying starting at 6:30 p.m.

Tickets for adults tickets are $14. Juniors and seniors $12 and children $6.
