By Gary Thomas

Placerville, CA - October 6, 20202...The FloRacing cameras will be rolling as wingless mania invades Placerville Speedway for the “Prospector Pandemonium” this Saturday! 

Throwing it down on the famed red clay will be the USAC West Coast Wingless 360 Sprint Cars, the USAC Western States/ BCRA Midgets and the Wingless BCRA Midget Lites!

The event marks the first injected Wingless 360 Sprint Car race at the track since 2017, while the Midget portion of the night will be their lone tune-up for November’s much anticipated “Hangtown 100.” For the Midget Lites, it is also their only chance to get track time without the wings before competing in the Hangtown 100.

The pit gate will open at noon on Saturday, with the drivers meeting scheduled for 4:30pm and cars on track shortly after.
