The region’s top 360ci drivers hit the famous Placerville Speedway red clay tomorrow with the highly competitive Civil War Sprint Car Series.

Lat season’s four appearances in Placerville saw local driver Andy Gregg pick up two of the four wins along with Greg DeCaires and Tim Kaeding winning the Al Hinds Memorial season finale.

Leading the series into action Saturday is the most recent feature winner, Shane Golobic, fresh off of finishes of first and second place, and looking to extend his lead and continue his strong runs at Speedway.

Breathing down Golobic’s neck, and sitting just four markers out of the lead is 2013 series champion Sean Becker while Geoff Ensign sits in third, 19 markers out of the lead.

Currently fourth in the standings by way of his three Top-10 finishes is ‘The Colfax Comet’ Colby Wiesz. He’s 30 markers out of the top spot and will look to cut into that this weekend.

Rounding out the Top-5, and looking to shake some bad luck to start his 2014 season is ‘Mr. Excitement,’ Andy Forsberg. Sitting 50 digits out of the lead, the seven-time series champion has had multiple mechanical gremlins knock him out of contention of wins early in the year, and the team will be gunning to return to victory lane at their home track.

In the most recent Civil War action, DJ Netto survived a last lap challenge from Golobic last Saturday at the Marysville Raceway Park to secure his first career series win,while on Sunday night at the Silver Dollar Speedway, Jonathan Allard and Shane Golobic thrilled the crowd with a battle for the lead, with Golobic taking the lead for good with four laps to go to secure the win.

Other drivers expected to be at Speedway tomorrow night include Gregg, Justin Sanders, Steven Tiner, Matt Peterson, Justyn Cox, Jonathan Allard, Kurt Nelson, Alissa Geving, Herman Kleing, DeCaires, Jimmy Trulli, Jake Morgan, James Sweeney, and many other top drivers.

The gates will open at 5 p.m.
