Placerville Speedway will host its first official test and tune tomorrow night at the county fairgrounds, a week before the official opening of the competitive championship points racing season.
Saturday’s event will be open to all forms of dirt track race cars and organized in such a fashion that cars of likeness will be given several opportunities to practice on the well-prepared racing surface of the quarter-mile banked oval that opened back in 1965 and continues to be one of California’s most competitive venues today.
The pit gate for Saturday’s test and tune will open for all competitors at 3 p.m. The on-track event will begin at 5 and run until 9. Pit entry for Saturday will be $25 per person. The grandstands will be open for those who want to watch. Admission is free.
Following Saturday’s evening of testing under the lights, the 2013 Placerville Speedway season will officially open next Saturday, April 6.
