MIDGETS, MODIFIEDS, MOTORCYCLES JOIN SPRINT CARS AT CALISTOGA SPEEDWAY IN 2010

 Calistoga…..A racing doubleheader for sprint cars and modifieds over Memorial Day weekend will kick off the 2010 season at Calistoga Speedway that offers the track’s most diverse schedule in recent years, including the return of flat track motorcycles for the first time in over 30 years.

    In keeping with its tradition of open wheel racing, sprint cars from three different sanctioning groups will be the main attraction at the half mile oval on the Napa County Fairgrounds and will be joined by midgets, modifieds and the American Motorcycle Association over four summer weekends through Labor Day, which will feature the third annual, two-day Vermeil Classic.

    “We believe this summer offers excitement and quality entertainment with open wheel racing for every taste,” said Carlene Moore, CEO of the Napa County Fairgrounds.  “The modifieds had fans on their feet during their first appearance at Calistoga last year.  The Golden State and Civil War tours offer the toughest competition for winged sprint car in this part of the country and the Vermeil Classic has quickly become a fan favorite to end the summer racing season with traditional, non-winged sprint cars and midgets.”

    In addition, a new highlight of the season will be the return of  AMA-sanctioned flat track motorcycles, including Pro Single and Twin Expert classes, which last raced at Calistoga in the late ’60s and that haven’t raced anywhere in Northern California since 1999.

    Opening weekend, Saturday and Sunday, May 29-30, will feature the high speed Golden State Challenge sprint cars, a series that crowns California’s statewide champion for the 850 hp machines, and the California Modified Invitational, limited to 35 of Northern California’s best modified drivers.
