Handy Racing Promotions, the promoters of Placerville Speedway, is grateful for its continued relationship with Red Hawk Casino. The casino’s contribution has been vital in the track’s success over the past four years and they are proud to carry this strong partnership into its fifth consecutive year.

Race fans will enjoy occasional rewards and promotions from Red Hawk Casino which welcomes race fans and competitors as a destination after the final checkered flag of the night waves each Saturday night.
