UPDATE: Placerville Speedway postpones this weekend’s event to Saturday October 3rd

By Gary Thomas

Placerville, CA – August 26, 2020…The El Dorado County Fairgrounds based Placerville Speedway has announced that this Saturday’s previously scheduled “Big Trophy Night” will be postponed until Saturday October 3rd.

The reasoning behind the postponement has to do with the recent outbreak of COVID-19 cases from Knoxville and the fact several California natives were in attendance. “We feel it’s in the best interest of everyone that we move this weekend’s event to Saturday October 3rd,” commented track Promoter Scott Russell. “A lot of individuals from California were in Knoxville and we believe this weekend is cutting it too close to the recommended 14-day quarantine period.”

All four divisions originally scheduled to compete on Big Trophy Night will be part of the action on October 3rd. The track will also be holding an event on September 19th.

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
