RENO (June 7) – This week’s racing preview begins with a special event to help a local racer. It also includes a bunch of events in our area as well as what’s on TV and streamed over the Internet.
Earlier this year Ty Tremaine, winner of this year’s VCGP, earned a spot on the American team that will compete in the ISDE (International Six Day Enduro) held in France. However earning that spot also meant he had to raise the funds so he can afford the trip.
One of this site’s sponsors PJandCo, located at 1590 S. Wells Avenue, is hosting a fundraiser on Wednesday, June 14, which is also the weekly bike night. The event runs from 5:30 p.m. until 8:30 p.m. and there will be a raffle, live auction plus T-shirts for sale.
It’s an opportunity to help this young racer in his quest to represent our country in this international event.
This weekend here are also a pair of events in our area.
The first is a three-race series involving the Lovelock Speedway, Winnemucca Regional Speedway and Rattlesnake Raceway.
It begins at 7 p.m. Friday evening in Lovelock then moves east to Winnemucca for Saturday’s race and ends at Rattlesnake Raceway in Fallon starting at noon Sunday.
Rattlesnake’s group is also involved in the annual Octane Fest with the events at the Churchill County Fairground both Friday and Saturday nights starting at 4 p.m. with a full program. On the list will be Outlaw Kart racing, Monster Trucks, a Pulling event as well as Demolition Derby.
For further information check the website at www.visitfallonnevada.com and look for the Octane Fest schedule.
On Saturday evening American Valley Speedway in Quincy, California will host another of its points races but this time the Dwarf Cars will be visiting the track. There is a 7 p.m. start time to the racing.
And on Sunday there are a pair of events close to the Reno area.
Starting around 9 a.m. Battle Born MX will run the final race of its spring series at the Fernley/Wadsworth Lion’s Club Motocross track located west of the Veteran’s Cemetery.
On that same day at Desert Park Raceway, the Northern Nevada Kart Club will have its next points race. This should be well attended as it’s a chance for the racers to tune their karts before th KPX event at the end of the month.
