Saturday's event canceled due to extreme heat

With the extreme heat forecasted for Saturday, Russell Motorsports Inc. has made the decision to cancel this weekend’s event at Placerville Speedway.

The current forecast shows 104 degrees with a heat index of 109 on Saturday. The decision was made in the best interest of safety for everyone involved, including fans, competitors, and staff.

“With the weather being so hot we want to do what is best for everyone that supports us,” said Promoter Scott Russell. “The safety of our fans, racers and staff is always paramount and running in this extreme weather just doesn’t make sense for us.”

Placerville Speedway will now return to action on Saturday July 29th with the 18th annual Mark Forni Classic.
