Coors Light returns as the official beer of Placerville Speedway

By Gary Thomas

Placerville, CA - The Placerville Speedway would like to welcome back Coors Light as official beer partner of the El Dorado County Fairgrounds based quarter-mile in 2021.

It doesn’t get better than grabbing an ice-cold Coors Light at the beer booth, hanging with your closest racing friends in the stands and watching the famed Placerville red clay shoot through the air during hot laps. Placerville Speedway will also be serving other favorites this year including Coors Banquet, Blue Moon, Racer 5, Hop Valley IPA, Sol, Oil Can (Fosters), Redd’s, Smirnoff ICE and Mike’s Hard Lemonade.

This Saturday night the Placerville Speedway will open its 56th season of competitive racing action with the Sprint Car Challenge Tour presented by Elk Grove Ford and Abreu Vineyards, along with the BCRA Lightning Sprints. Due to the limited capacity, grandstands tickets have already been sold out, however, pit passes are available to watch from the hill and can be purchased via the Pit Pay Mobile Pit Pass App.

The COVID form is also built into Pay Pay, saving the need to print it out. For those without smart phones they can still purchase pit passes the traditional way at the pit booth. If you can’t make it Flo Racing will offer live flag-to-flag coverage of the “Spring Fever Frenzy” on Saturday.

The Placerville Speedway is located on the beautiful El Dorado County Fairgrounds in Placerville, California. Take Hwy US-50 to Forni Road/Placerville Drive exit. Then go north on Placerville Drive to the Fairgrounds. The physical address is 100 Placerville Dr., Placerville, CA 95667. For more information on the Placerville Speedway log onto
