Fenders, Fenders & more Fenders. 
Great Taxi Cab Open Saturday
By Bob Burbach
Marysville CA - October 13, 2011 --- Some serious hot rods are headed to Paul and Kathy Hawes' Marysville Raceway Park Saturday night. With $1000 to win on the line in the Limited Late Model feature, all-star dirt track stock cars and their all-star drivers from all over northern California are expected to test the hooked up Marysville clay. With $750 to win offered in the MRP Super Stock class a full field of cars in that class is also expected. As a matter of fact, it’s likely that a few of the stars in the Super Stock class will give the Late Models a challenge, perhaps doing “double duty”. If someone could pull off the “double” it could mean over $1750 in cash plus contingency awards. The added Pure Stock/Hobby Stock feature will offer a $250 to win purse as well. Northern California’s 3 premier fendered classes will have an opportunity for one last shot at a nice fistful of cash prior to the cars going into that long hibernation called the off-season. MRP will close out this season Saturday with the 2011 edition of The Gold Fever Great Taxi Cab Open. It’ll be fenders, fenders and more fenders as this quality field of cars and stars slug it out. This event was rained out in March and rescheduled for this weekend. 

For 43 years MRP has presented a big, post-season stock car extravaganza and this year’s Gold Fever Great Taxi Cab Open will be no exception. It will be another salute to MRP’s roots and with the increase in participation and fan interest in the MRP Super Stock class this past season, MRP’s fendered roots seem to be taking hold once again. So head out to MRP for some slam-bang, fender crunching, wheel to wheel, side-by-side, door handle to door handle, bumper-to-bumper racing action this Saturday night. Northern California’s greatest dirt track stock car stars will rock the house with some good ol’ fashioned, dirt track stock car action. Be there.

For additional information contact MRP via the website or see the poster at 

The Pit Gate opens at 3pm. The front gates open at 5pm with racing at 6.30pm.
