USAC books date! New clay this weekend!
New Year’s Playday at MRP.
By Bob Burbach
Marysville CA - December 19, 2013 ---Promoter Paul Hawes informed this observer today that the new clay goes onto the MRP surface this weekend. This will allow racers the opportunity to try the new surface during the upcoming January 1st Playday.

In addition, the United States Auto Club (or USAC) has booked their Western Classic wingless sprint car series into MRP on September 20th. It is the first time that the nationally recognized sanctioning body will appear at MRP. MRP will host round 11 of the12 races in this special series.

A host of emails and texts have asked this observer when the first two sprint car races are going to take place. The annual Sherm Toller Memorial is scheduled for March 1st. That race will feature winged 360 sprint cars and wingless spec sprinters. It is MRP’s traditional opening event. The 1st California Sprint Car Civil War Series event of 2014 will be two weeks later on March 15th. The Mel Hall Memorial Civil War event is scheduled for May 24th this season. The KWS 410 Sprint Car show will take place on June 7th. These dates are solid, though the rest of the MRP schedule might need some adjustments before it is officially released.
