PLACERVILLE, Calif. — The familiar Sierra Foothills based quarter-mile of Placerville Speedway is the destination for the Elk Grove Ford Sprint Car Challenge Tour presented by Abreu Vineyards this Saturday, as the competitive Winged 360 series opens its campaign.
The Spring Fever Frenzy kicks-off a 14-race season for the Elk Grove Ford Sprint Car Challenge Tour. It also marks the first of two appearances at the popular El Dorado County Fairgrounds venue located just a short drive from the capital city of Sacramento.
The 35-lap feature will hand out $3,000-to-win and $400-to-start. A strong field of Winged 360 Sprint Cars are expected to tackle the red clay and help the SCCT open its sixth overall season of competition.
Last year SCCT continued to be as competitive as it gets, with 10 different drivers finding victory lane. Shane Golobic and Justin Sanders led the way with three victories apiece. Sanders swept the SCCT shows at Placerville Speedway in 2022 and is fresh off a thrilling win last weekend. Golobic is also routinely a top contender at the quarter-mile and came home a close second last Saturday.
Reigning Sprint Car Challenge Tour champion Andy Forsberg will be gunning to open the season in victory lane. The Auburn veteran claimed a win at the 2019 Spring Fever Frenzy in Placerville and has captured nine career titles at the bullring. This past year saw him bring home the SCCT crown over Tony Gomes, Ryan Robinson, Golobic and Isaiah Vasquez.
The event will be broadcast live by SPEED SPORT affiliate CaliDirt.tv.
