Civil War Series Presented By Flowmaster Set For 12 Races in 2016


(PETERSEN MEDIA- Aptos, CA)- After a hotly contested 2015 season, the Civil War Series presented by Flowmaster is excited for a 12-race 2016 campaign that should once again have fans on the edge of their seats on a nightly basis.

As the West Coast’s premier traveling 360ci series embarks on it’s 26th season of operation, the stars and cars of the Civil War Series presented by Flowmaster will kick things off on Friday March 25th at the Silver Dollar Speedway for the first of three appearances at the north state quarter mile facility.

With tracks getting into their weekly routines in April and early May, the series will return to action for it’s annual North State Memorial Day Double Header, as the Marysville Raceway will again host 17th Annual Mel Hall Memorial on Saturday May 28th, one night before the series’ return to the Silver Dollar Speedway for the always popular Fair Race on Sunday the 29th.

The Summer months lead into a busy time for the Civil War Series as they make their first of two stops at the Placerville Speedway on June 11th. 2016 marks a special season at Placerville as it will be the first season ran under Russell Motorsports Inc. leadership.

Moving to the Bay-Area the following weekend, the Petaluma Speedway plays host on June 18th, before the series rolls into the Ocean Speedway on Friday July 15th for the 6th Annual Howard Kaeding Classic, an event that has turned into one of the most anticipated on a year-by-year basis.

Following the HK Classic, the Series travels back to the high-banked Placerville Speedway for the 11th Annual Mark Forni Classic, an event that has offered a healthy check to the winner and has attracted some of the regions top drivers over the course of it’s existence.

The 56th Annual Johnny Key Classic will again be held at the Ocean Speedway on August 20th, and at this time qualifying races have not been announced, but we will make those public once they are finalized.

Wednesday September 7th, the Series will open up the 63rd Annual Gold Cup Race of Champions in what will be their final visit to the Silver Dollar Speedway of 2016, and on September 17th the series returns to the Marysville Raceway for one final time.

September 24th will see the series return to the Petaluma Speedway for one final night of points racing leading into the Championship finale.

After experimenting with the mulligan concept during the 2015 season, PMG has decided to do away with that rule in 2016, meaning all nights will count towards the championship points total.
