Placerville, CA – April 29, 2017…The second Red Hawk Casino championship point race of the 2017 season was held on Saturday at Placerville Speedway and when all the dust had settled it was Rio Linda racer Scott Hall headlining the night’s winners, taking home the $1200-to-win Wingless Spec Sprint feature.

Also sharing victory lane on Saturday were Matt Micheli in the Ltd. Late Models, Ray Trimble in the Pure Stocks and Ryan Winter with the traveling Nor-Cal Dwarf Car Association.

Hall would then scoop up the lead on a lap 12 restart and Spencer was also able to get by, before Schank packed his right rear with mud, ultimately ending his night. Hall eventually led the remaining laps to pick up the victory over Spencer, Paul Van De Berg, Brent Steck and Trey Walters. A total of 10 Wingless Sprints were on hand with Hall and Spencer winning heat races, while Schank captured the dash and fast time to begin the night.
