(PETERSEN MEDIA- Chico, CA)- Getting back to action for the second time in 2017, the Civil War Series presented by Flowmaster will return to Silver Dollar Speedway in Chico, CA on Friday night.
“After an exciting Silver Cup with the series, we are all excited to play host again to the stars and cars of the Civil War Series this Friday night,” Silver Dollar Speedway CEO Troy Hennig said. “The weather in the north state has slowed the opening weeks of our season, but our fans are eager for action on Friday night.”
Friday night’s event at the famed ¼ mile facility will mark the second of nine Civil War Series dates in 2017. During the season opening event at the Silver Cup back on March 11th, fans were treated to an entertaining battle between former series champion, Shane Golobic and Mitchell Faccinto, before Golobic and Justin Sanders went toe-to-toe in the closing laps.
When the checkered flag flew on opening night, it was the 2014 series champion, Golobic enjoying victory lane, and this Friday night the Fremont, CA driver will look for his second win in as many nights with the series.
Golobic will lead a cast of stars into battle on Friday night as he is expected to be joined by all time series wins leader, Andy Forsberg, defending track champion, Sean Becker, young masher, Buddy Kofoid, Mason Moore, Kenny Allen Brad Bumgarner, and many more drivers from around the region.
Friday night the front gates are slated to open at 6pm with tickets available starting at just 6$ for children 6 and over, 14$ for juniors and seniors, 17$ for adults, and fans five and under will be admitted at no cost.
