Placerville, CA – March 23, 2021…After not contesting a race last season the Sprint Car Challenge Tour presented by Elk Grove Ford and Abreu Vineyards is ready to get this show on the road for 2021 and it all starts this Saturday March 27th at Placerville Speedway.

This weekend’s “Spring Fever Frenzy” launches what is slated to be a 14-race campaign for the tour and marks the first of two appearances at the popular El Dorado County Fairgrounds, which is located just a short drive from the capital city of Sacramento.

A solid field of Winged 360 Sprint Cars are expected to converge upon the red clay and help the Sprint Car Challenge Tour open its fourth overall season of action. Also on the card this Saturday are the BCRA Lightning Sprints.

A limited number of fans have been approved to sit in the grandstands for the show, with tickets available for purchase on the homepage until the maximum number is reached. Due to the limited amount of fans and a full SCCT purse being handed out all tickets cost $25. Pit passes are also available to watch from the hill and can be pre-purchased via the Pit Pay Mobile Pit Pass App.

“We look forward to opening the Sprint Car Challenge Tour season on Saturday at Placerville Speedway,” commented SCCT President Scott Russell. “Entering what will now be our fourth season we believe the SCCT schedule is the best one yet with tracks like Chico, Ocean and Marysville joining the mix. I want to thank all the promoters for working together and making it possible to have such a great schedule for our teams and fans. I also want to thank Elk Grove Ford, Abreu Vineyards, Hoosier Tires and all of our sponsors that make this series possible.”
