Sole appearance for USAC Sprints

The United States Auto Club (USAC) Western Classic Series enters the Speedway bullring tomorrow night joined by many of Placerville’s regular open wheel drivers for a night of competitive racing without the top wings.

Look for longtime fan favorite Shauna Hogg of Fair Oaks to return to the track she used to call home. In the early 90′s, Hogg was one of Placerville’s top weekly competitors in winged sprint car action and became the first female to ever win a Civil War Sprint Car Series feature.

Series regulars that will join Hogg include current series point leader Ryan Bernal who sits ahead of Colton Slack in the USAC WCS point standings over Tanner Swanson and Matt Streeter. Nationally known open wheel driver Tony Hunt is currently fifth over DJ Johnson, Nathan Washam, Jim Richardson, Klint Simpson and Scott Hall.

Last year, many of Placerville’s regular weekly drivers pulled the wing off and joined the roster. Among those regular drivers included Placerville’s own James Sweeney, Jimmy Trulli, Marc Mackay, Jake Morgan, Justin Johnson and CJ Humphreys, many of which are expected to do so again on Saturday.

As the USAC stars take to the clay for the one and only time this season, they’ll be joined by the fire breathing Placerville Speedway late models and the exciting pure stock division. 

In the late model division, Matt Micheli and Folsom’s Tom Tilford are tied for the point lead with Duane Zieder in third followed by Jackson’s Doug Grandboise and Ken Micheli.

In the Pure Stock division, Les Friend of Galt leads Matt Tilford by five points in the standings. Chris Van Roekel is third followed by Scott Grunert. El Dorado’s Dennis Armstrong rounds out the top five.

The grandstands will open at 5 p.m. tomorrow with qualifying starting at 6:30. Adult tickets will be $14, juniors and seniors, $12, and children $6. A special  pre-sale of grandstand tickets will take place at 3 p.m. at the track concession center to help alleviate long lines when the gates open.
