Placerville, CA…After taking Memorial Day weekend off the Placerville Speedway is preparing to get back at it in grand fashion the following Saturday by hosting “Dads and Grads Night,” which also doubles as “Kings Meats Night” at the races on June 5th.
Each main event held during the evening will feature a “Race for the Meat” where the winner receives a complimentary Kings Meats Meat Box! Competing on “Dads and Grads/ Kings Meats Night” will be the Thompson’s Family of Dealerships Winged 360 Sprint Cars, Pure Stocks, Mini Trucks and the traveling BCRA Lightning Sprints.
Not only will the race teams have an opportunity at going home with some meat, but race fans will also have a shot at winning some as well. The usual 50/50 raffle will be held at the event however, a second ticket will be drawn for the chance to win $200 in fresh meats courtesy of Kings Meats.
“We are delighted to have Kings Meats come on board to double the fun at Dads and Grads Night,” commented Placerville Speedway Promoter Kami Arnold. “Casey King and his company have been excellent partners of the speedway and their fresh meats have become a hit at the concession stand. The main event winners will be pretty happy on June 5th with a Kings Meats Meat Box up for grabs. For fans it’s the perfect night to purchase extra 50/50 raffle tickets as well with the secondary prize being $200 worth of fresh meat.”
