All American Open Showdown in Roseville Saturday



ROSEVILLE, Calif.–All American Speedway, a couple of hours away in Roseville, is blowing open the gates this weekend for the All American Open Showdown.

The Sept. 25 open race, which will pit the track’s regular favorites against drivers from other tracks, is a spinoff of sorts of the legendary “Rose Classic.” That prestigious race was held at the track each spring from the early ’70s through the early ’90s and attracted fans and legendary drivers from all over the West Coast.

Cars are coming from as far away as Washington State, Ukiah Speedway, Stockton 99 and other top tracks in the West.

The Open Showdown gives competitors a special, once-a-year, well-paying show that drivers can enjoy without the pressure of points. The rules for all divisions have been relaxed for this event. A large field of modifieds is expected, as this race is the first of a trifecta including Shasta Raceway Park and Stockton 99, with a $10,000 bonus purse based on high points. Fans of late models will be treated to a 150-green-flag-laps race. Winged sprint cars will also put on an exhibition race during the show.

The next race at the speedway will be the NASCAR K&N Pro Series tour race on Oct. 16. For ticket information and directions visit www.AllAmericanSpeedway.com.
