Wild Wednesday Brings Out the Stars
(Marysville, CA 7/05/20)…The sights and sounds of grass roots dirt track racing returns to Marysville Raceway this Wednesday night, July 8th, with a surplus of scheduled stars and cars. A strong four division show will feature the winged 360 sprint cars, IMCA sport Mods, Limited Late Models and Dwarf Cars.
Once again, the Raceway has been given permission to allow the first 100 fans into the main grandstands on this night. The front gate will open at 6 PM. Once the 100-person quota has been filled, the Raceway will stop allowing more fans in.
Thanks to the generous support from our on-line streaming partners Speed Shift Tv and FloRacing, the Wild Wednesday race will offer a full purse once again to the competitors. The Wild Wednesday race is available to simulcast on both www.speedshifttv.com and www.FloRacing.com. Please visit those websites for more details on how to order this event. The streaming services are the best way to catch the action while not being able to get to the track in person.
The winged 360 sprint cars will be led by Auburn’s Andy Forsberg. Close on his heels are two drivers from Chico. Michael Ing and Brad Bumgarner sit second and third in the points. Alec Justeson and Blake Carrick round out the top five. Joining this fearsome five is Roseville’ Sean Becker in the Dan Monhoff No. 88. Also scheduled to appear is the most recent main event winner, Fremont’s Shane Golobic in his Matt Wood Racing No. 17w.
The always entertaining IMCA Sport Mods will hit the track for the fourth time in 2020. Scott Savell leads a talented group of drivers. In fact, the top five is only separated by 7-points. Timothy Allerdings, Jimmy Ford, Phillip Shelby, and Shawn Smith are all vying for the top spot.
One of the true surprises this season has been the emergence of the Limit Late Models. This group offers a close-knit racing family and provides some great on track racing. It will be a pleasure to watch these warriors battle it out again on the tricky Marysville Raceway surface.
The traveling Nor-Cal Dwarf cars are the fourth group this Wednesday night. Often these drivers put on a show that leaves everyone speechless. We are excited to host this group of drivers once again.
The departure from the normal Saturday night program was forced by the need for financial support from television. So, with TV paying some of the bills the track moved to a Wednesday night since the pay per view audience is lacking options mid-week. When a reasonable fan base allowed the track will return to Saturday nights.
Pit gate for the competitors will open at the normal time, 3 PM. The grandstands will not open until 6 and most likely be closed by 6:30. No in and out privileges will be allowed as the gates will be closed to all but exiting spectators. Social distancing will be required, and fans should have a face mask. Adult tickets are $17, Junior and Senior $14 and kids $6.
Information is available at the track website at www.marysvilleraceway.com or at 530-350-7275.

Shane Golobic Returns Back to California and Wins
Marysville, CA…(6-24-20) – Shane Golobic led all 25-laps to win the Wicked Wednesday Marysville Raceway point show #6. It was nice to see the Matt Wood Racing No. 17w back in California after an extended time racing in the Mid-West. Golobic also earned an extra $100 from Paul Olmsted Plastering for turning the fastest lap in qualifying at 12.776. A total of 19 teams braved the heat and the unusual Wednesday night race. Speed Shift Tv was on hand again and was the nights presenting sponsor.
Golobic, from the pole position, shot out to the early lead. Yet, on the original start Colby Copeland and Michael Ing tangled going into turn one. Neither Ing nor Copeland would continue on. Also involved was Brandon Dozier. On the next restart, Golobic once again took the lead away from fellow front row started Shane Hopkins. Another yellow was needed for Nick Larsen and Pat Harvey who stopped on the track. Each restarted and to his credit, Larsen drove back up to a sixth-place finish. Larsen received an extra $100 from Paul Olmsted Plastering for finishing in that sixth spot.
On the third lap, Mike Monahan flipped over after contact with Brent Bjork in turn four. Monahan was fine, but his car could not continue. Bjork would restart and race his way back to seventh. Back up front, Golobic had the field covered. The real race was for second on back. At one-point Andy Forsberg moved into second and got to the outside of Golobic for the lead but was never able to mount a charge after that. While Forsberg’s car went away, Hopkins drove back by for second. Blake Carrick was in the mix also. He passed Forsberg on lap 17.
A late race caution for Alec Justeson on lap 23 added a little bit of drama to the finish. However, once the green flag waived again, Golobic took off and hid. He amassed over a two-second lead in just two laps at the checkered flag. Hopkins finished a career best second at Marysville. Forsberg got back around Carrick for third. Carrick was fourth. Korey Lovell made a nice run from the back to finish fifth.
Heat race number one went to Kenny Wanderstadt. Kenny was super impressive in his return to Marysville. Brad Bumgarner looked large and in charge by winning heat two. Hopkins dominated heat three.
Rob Gallaher made the long tow from San Jose and won the 20-lap Hobby Stock feature. However, during post-race tech, he was disqualified, and the win was taken away. This meant second place finishing Jimmy Ford was ruled the winner. In doing so, Ford won an extra $100 from W.A.R. Racing. Ford made a rare Hobby Stock start and was solid all night. Jim Brookshire drove from his 11th starting spot all the way up to a second-place finish. Chris Van Roekel finished third. Angelo Cornet was fourth and Toby Merrifield
Only three cautions were needed. The first took place on lap 10 when Jason Clayton’s No. 53 came to a stop in turn three. On the restart Matt Rivera spun and another yellow was needed. The final yellow was needed on lap 14 when Jesse Van Roekel spun in turn two. Jesse restarted at the rear of the field and drove back to a sixth-place finish. Zach Lindgren was running in the top five but with two laps to go his right rear tire went flat and he pulled into the infield. Kyle Cheney had a rough night and only completed 12 laps. Jacob Johnson had an early exit and only completed five laps.
Dan Brown Jr. dominated the Limited Late Models tonight. He won the 20-lap feature and the lone eight-lap heat race. Brown Jr. won the main event by over four-seconds. Finishing second was teammate Jay Norton. Ray Trimble raced hard all night to capture the third spot. Rod Oliver got around Richard Vander to secure the fourth spot. Two yellow flags were needed. The first one happened when Vander Ploeg spun in lap 11. Oliver spun on the restart.

Fans Allowed at Marysville Raceway

(Marysville, CA 6/19/20) The long awaited return of race fans to live California Auto Racing begins at
Marysville Raceway next Wednesday night June 24th. 100 early arrivals will be allowed into the
Raceway grandstand and sales will be stopped.

“Not quite what we had hoped for” explained track manager Dennis Gage. “Yuba County took
the time and made the effort to assist in the reopening of the raceway and we will follow their
guidelines”, he continued. “We are hopeful that this is just temporary number and will lead to
a more realistic attendance, Gage said. “We are very aware of the need for families to
begin a transition back to normalcy, and this just one small part of that.”, he concluded.

The departure from the normal Saturday night program was forced by the need for financial
support from television. So, with TV paying some of the bills the track moved to a Wednesday
night since the pay per view audience is lacking options mid-week. When a reasonable fan
base allowed the track will return to Saturday nights.

Sprint cars, Limited Late Models, and Hobby Stocks will compete on the ¼ mile clay oval located
At 1468 Simpson Lane in Marysville. With a warm forecast, racing won’t start until 7 PM.

Timed qualifying will be held for the Sprint cars and all divisions will compete in heat races and
Main events. The remaining race fans who aren’t among the 100 allowed will be able to watch
action for about the same price as admission on SpeedshiftTV. com. Subscriptions are not
required. A person can just select the June 24 Marysville event.

With the warm temperatures forecast the competitor pit gate will open at the normal 3 pm
But the grandstands will not open until 6 and most likely be closed by 6:30. No in and out
privileges will be allowed as the gates will be closed to all but exiting spectators. Social distancing will be
required and fans should have a face mask. Adult tickets are $17, Junior and Senior $14 and kids $6.

Marysville Raceway

Marysville, CA…(6-14-20) – The Sunday night Showdown at Marysville Raceway produced a large car count with close intense racing. A large gathering of 31 winged 360 sprints, 28 Hobby Stocks, 15 IMCA Sport Mods and 5 Crate Sprints entered the special Sunday night showcase. The race was presented by Speed Shift Tv and offered the regular purse for those who attended. Still no grandstand fans were allowed.
Paradise’s John Michael Bunch electrified the quarter-mile clay oval raceway with a stunning wire-to-wire win during the 25-lap winged 360 sprint car main event. It was the first time in recent memory, that the track had a top and bottom groove for the drivers at both ends of the track. It marked Bunch’s first sprint car win since 2014. According to our notes, it was his fifth career main event win at Marysville.
Bunch shot out to the lead over fellow front row started Brad Bumgarner. J.J. Hickle quickly climbed to the second spot followed by the nights fast time qualifier Blake Carrick. While those three put on a whale of a show, the battle for fourth on back was just as good. Bumgarner tried to fend off hard charging Shane Hopkins, Andy Forsberg, and Tanner Carrick.
Only two yellows slowed the event down. The first one was needed on lap 11 when Michael Faccinto stopped in turn three. On lap 18, Bumgarner crashed into the turn one wall. It is hard to describe how great the race was on paper. Luckily, our friends at Speed Shift Tv covered the event and I would highly recommend you watch it.
In the end it was Bunch winning by a half second over Blake Carrick. Hickle grabbed the third spot at the finish. Hopkins fought hard all night for his fourth-place finish. Tanner Carrick rounded out the top five. Michael Ing held off Forsberg for sixth. Caden Sarale started 15th and finished 8th.
Stephen Ingraham dominated the 12-lap B main event. Finishing second was Michael Sellers, third was Faccinto and fourth was Mike Monahan.
Heat race wins went to Ing, Billy Wallace, Colby Wiesz and Hopkins.
Grass Valley’s Andrew Peckham led all 20-laps to capture the exciting IMCA Sport Mod feature. As with the sprint car race, only two yellows slowed this magnificent race. The first one taking place on lap 14 when Brain Cooper spun and collected Phillip Shelby. Both drivers were inside the top five at the time. Cooper exited the track. Shelby restarted and blasted his way back to a fifth-place finish. A few more laps and Shelby might have given Peckham a battle for the win. The final caution saw Timothy Allerdings spin. Also involved was Todd Cooper. Cooper could not continue after the yellow flag. Allerdings did his best in the final three laps to charge back to a ninth-place finish.
Even though Peckham led every lap, second place finishing Justin Funkhouser shadowed him all race long. Give credit to Funkhouser, he drover an outstanding race. Mike Merritt turned in another good finish. Merritt passed Jimmy Ford late in the event to finish third. Ford was solid all night and came home in fourth. Justin Foux made a rare Marysville start. Foux started 14th and finished sixth.
Merritt and Peckham each won their respective eight lap heat race.
Brett Youngman charged his way back into victory lane Sunday night during the Crate Sprint car feature. The 15-lap feature saw Youngman lead every lap. Jeff Macedo finished second. David Sims ran third. Cameron Haney Jr. came home fourth. Mike Ballentine was the fifth and final finisher of the race. Youngman swept the night by winning the 8-lap heat race.
Kyle Cheney was cool, calm, and collected while driving his way to the 20-lap win in the Hobby Stock main event. Cheney was able to hit his marks, and never miss a beat in route to the popular win. Six cautions slowed the event, but it never seemed to slow Cheney. Fifth place starting Jacob Johnson is becoming one of the divisions top drivers. Late in the race he moved into second. Phil Spencer was in the top three all night. Jesse Van Roekel started on the outside of the front row but drifted back a bit during the event. In fact, he was passed late in the race by Chris Van Roekel. Chris was scored fourth while Jesse was fifth. Keith Ross was fast all night but could not catch a break and finished sixth. 19th starting Zach Lindgren charged his way up to a seventh-place finish. David Allen was scored with an eighth-place finish. 18th starting David Caluya came home ninth. Jim Brookshire rounded out the top 10.
Robert Warf won the 12-lap B main event. Kyle Cheney swept the night by also win the first heat race. Jesse Van Roekel won heat two. Orville Owens won the third heat. Phil Spencer got the win in heat four. Another strong car count, 28, keeps this Hobby Stock division on the fast track to stardom.
