PLACERVILLE, CA (6-3-13) - Placerville Speedway is proud to announce that this Saturday, Red Hawk Casino will present the first ever "Placerville Speedway Day" prior to the night of championship auto racing at the El Dorado County Fairgrounds. This event will bring Placerville Speedway's racing community together with its longtime community sponsor for a day of fun for race fans and future fans of all ages.
This Saturday, June 8, from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m. Red Hawk Casino will host a giant race car display in the elegant main valet entrance of the casino located on Red Hawk Parkway just off of Highway 50. This event will be one of the largest outreach efforts for the local speedway as some 20 race teams have already confirmed their attendance for the event and a handful of others are working to make repairs to also attend.
Saturday's event will feature cars from all of Placerville Speedway's divisions and members of their teams on hand to greet fans, sign autographs and give out various goodies and hero cards to fans of all ages. As the marketing team from Red Hawk Casino and Placerville Speedway team together for this great community event, Red Hawk Casino will be providing great hospitality for those teams participating and awarding each team that displays a car up to four gift certificates for the Waterfall Buffett and it's expected many teams will join fans in attendance for a great lunch at the award winning dining venue.
"We're really forward to this event, said defending track champion Andy Forsberg of Auburn. While Forsberg is one of Placerville's most victorious drivers in history, he knows the importance of corporate sponsorship in today's day and age of auto racing. For the last five years Red Hawk Casino has been a vital financial partner to Placerville Speedway. "We love to race and we couldn't do it without two things, tracks and fans. Its places like Red Hawk Casino that step up and support racing in our county. We will be there with the F&F Racing Team to show our support."
Drivers and cars from all four of Placerville Speedway's divisions will be on hand for Saturday's events including Sprint Cars, Late Models, Pure Stocks and the Midget Lites from the Bay Cities Racing Association. In addition to the divisions competing that night, a select number of dwarf cars and wingless sprint cars have also signed up to strut their stuff.
Saturday's first ever "Placerville Speedway Day" at Red Hawk Casino will feature live music by singer songwriter Cynthia Renee and Guitarist Chris Kawelo. Renee is one of Placerville Speedway's primary National Anthem singers. She is the writer and performer of the original songs "Where are You Now" and "The Journey" produced by Bill Bentley productions and available on itunes and amazon. Kawelo is a veteran acoustic and electric guitarist that recently joined with Renee. The duo will be appearing at the upcoming El Dorado County Fair and appear regularly at Sienna and 36 Handles Restaurants in El Dorado Hills.
Shortly after Red Hawk Casino opened its doors, they joined with Placerville Speedway with a contribution that succeeded most others. The title sponsorship has brought upgrades to the racing facility, including the addition of a long awaited electronic scoreboard that is integrated with the track's state of the art electronic scoring system. Prior to the generous sponsorship, Placerville was one of few motor sports facilities lacking in such amenities.
With more than 2,200 of the most liberal slots, a large selection of table games and action packed live poker, Red Hawk Casino is the destination for Casino excitement. Entertainment features include some of the region's most popular bands with an all new entertainment lounge that opened in December. Additionally, Red Hawk Casino features six restaurants that will satisfy every palate and offers a Cyber Quest arcade and Kids Quest.
