RENO, NV (Dec. 6) – This week’s Racing Preview illustrates what this time of the year brings, not much competition but a whole lot in the Re-Run Zone. And there are two live award shows that will be streamed.
Last weekend even though it was cold three groups had toy drives to help make sure some kids get something for Christmas.
Chester’s Harley Davidson was the starting point for the motorcycle one, while both Reno Cars and Coffee as well as the Old Slammers club joined forces to get toys for the Children’s Cabinet. Apparently it was a success for each group.
Although racing has ended in our immediate area over the hill at the Prairie City track things are getting ready for the final round of the MotoPro Graphics Triple Crown series.
On Thursday vendors can park from noon to 4 p.m. and racers can get their spots from 4 p.m. until 9 p.m. On Friday the gates open at 7 a.m. and practice sessions run from 8 a.m. until 2 p.m.
Saturday and Sunday gates open at 6:30 a.m., practice begins at 8 a.m. with racing to follow.
For the other tracks, Riverfront will have Thursday practice from 4 until 9 p.m. then from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m. on Sunday. E Street MX Park has practice sessions from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m. on both tracks Saturday and Sunday.
Over in TV land things are pretty empty when it comes to live events but there is enough in the Re-Run Zone to keep about anybody happy.
Over on www.nascar.com this week they are running recaps on drivers in most of the series.
Thursday’s action is all on www.mavtv.com starting at noon with the Dirt 30 program, then followed by the Super Cup Stock Car series. After that there are three Lucas Oil events starting with Drag Boat Racing, Pro Pulling League and the Late Model Dirt Series plus some others.
Friday is well empty however www.fanschoice.tv is going to stream the awards banquet for the NASCAR Touring and Weekly series.
Fans Choice comes back on Saturday when it streams the Xfinity and Camping World Truck series awards banquet. These are up and coming racers that within a few years should be competing for the NASCAR Cup.
Over on TV once again MAVTV has a series of events they are going to show. The action begins at 9 a.m. with part 1 of the Loretta Lynn’s Amateur Championships.
