ROSEVILLE, Calif. – Officials anticipate one of Northern California’s largest late model races of the year when the Pacific Challenge Series late models visit All American Speedway for the annual October Classic on Saturday, Oct. 11.
The NAPA Mufflers & Shocks 100 late model race will share the stage at the historic fairgrounds track in Roseville, California, with the NASCAR K&N Pro Series West in a big weekend of racing featuring $130,000 in total winnings.
The event – which will benefit the Placer Breast Cancer Endowment – will feature two-time Daytona 500 champion Michael Waltrip, a contestant on this season’s “Dancing With The Stars” television show on ABC. Waltrip will greet fans and sign autographs, and also compete in the K&N West race.
Well-known former NASCAR Sprint Cup Series crew chief Larry McReynolds, now the lead analyst for NASCAR racing on FOX television, will serve as the Grand Marshal for the event.
“We anticipate a great turnout for this race with many of the top late model drivers on the West Coast,” said event promoter Bill McAnally, president of Bill McAnally Racing. “The Pacific Challenge Series is known for its close door-to-door competition and should put on a very exciting race for the fans.”
Entry forms for the late model race, along with additional information about the event, are available on the Bill McAnally Racing website at www.bmrnapa.com.
The October Classic will also feature a special media race, the Basalite Media Blitz 100, and competition for the California Mini Cup division.
Jeremy Doss will be looking for his second consecutive late model victory at Roseville, after taking the win among a Pacific Challenge Series 24-car field at All American Speedway on Sept. 20.
