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 2023. The always anticipated Coors Light Big Trophy Night will also converge at the Placerville bullring on Saturday August 12th.

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. Other favorites will also be served this year including Coors Banquet, Blue Moon, Solid Ground Brewing Kabru, Hop Valley IPA, Sol, Oil Can (Fosters), Angry Orchard, Smirnoff ICE and Mike’s Hard Lemonade.

Tomorrow night the Placerville Speedway begins its 58th season of competitive racing action with the opening Hoosier Tires championship point race. Tackling the famed red clay on opening night will be the Thompson’s Winged 360 Sprint Cars, the Anrak Ltd. Late Models, Red Hawk Casino Pure Stocks and Wingless Spec Sprints.  

Adult tickets for the championship opener this Saturday March 18th cost $18 while seniors 62+, military and juniors 12-17 will be $16. Kids 6-11 cost $7 and those five and under are free. Purchase tickets online at or at the gate.

Something new this season is the fact that all tickets in the grandstands are reserved to give fans better access to individual seats.

The pit gate will open at noon, with the front gate opening at 3pm. Happy Hour is offered when the gates open until 6pm in the grandstands featuring live music along with discounted Coors Light and Coors Original at the beer booth.
