 A big night of motor sports madness is sure to entertain this Saturday, culminating with the much anticipated  Riebes Season Finale Trailer Bash at the All American Speedway in Roseville this Saturday. The event wraps up the 2018 season at @the Grounds in Roseville with Sinister Diesel Night at the Races.

 Action on the third-mile oval will be highlighted by the Cooks Collision 100 for the Late Model division. Other competition Saturday will include the Cooks Collision Junior Late Models, the Quick Quack Car Wash Limited Modifieds, the TriCo Welding Supplies Super Stocks A & B, the F4s and the Mini Cup/Bandoleros.  

 The mayhem and destruction of trailer racing is back by popular demand, with the third Riebes Auto Parts Trailer Bash of the year. The trailer race is a novelty event in which properly prepared eligible cars tow a trailer in a 10-lap race, while trying to dislodge the trailers of other competitors. Fans were thrilled by the wild and wacky action of the first two trailer races at the s

peedway this year.

 “The trailer races have quickly become a big hit with fans of all ages,” said race promoter Bill McAnally. “The exciting crash-bang action captures everyone’s attention. You don’t know what to expect next. It’s crazy entertainment.” 

 There will be plenty of competition on the track Saturday prior to the trailer race with the local divisions in action.

 In the four previous Late Model feature races this year, Matt Erickson of LaGrange scored two wins, local driver John Moore of Granite Bay notched a win and Buddy Shepherd made his long tow from Bakersfield pay off with a $10,000 victory.

 Granite Bay’s Corey Englehardt has dominated the competition in the Quick Quack Car Wash Limited Modifieds, winning four of five races. Nick Lyons of Loomis is the only other driver to go to Victory Lane in the division this year.

 Some of the toughest competition this year has been among the TriCo Welding Supplies Super Stock drivers. Andrew Peeler of Sacramento and Josh Whitfield of Rocklin each have two wins in the A division, while Byron Gonzales of Sacramento has one win. No driver has multiple wins in the B division, meanwhile. Gary Eisenhour of Rancho Cordova, Cody Rickard of Roseville, David Dillinger of Anderson, Chris Paulson of Antelope, and Erick Ray of Orangevale each have one win.

 Ray Molina of Roseville is a two-time winner this year in the F4 division, while Roseville’s Rick Anable and Jess Yendes of Auburn each took home one victory.

 Billy Ray of Orangevale has dominated the combination Mini Cup/Bandolero competition,  winning all five events this year.

 

In the two Cooks Collision Junior Late Model feature races this year, Kayla Eshleman of Fontana took both wins.

 The grandstands will open at 4 p.m. Saturday, with feature events set to get underway at 6:15 p.m. Tickets are $15 for general admission; $10 for military, first responders and seniors over 65; and $7 for kids between the ages of 6 and 12. It’s free for kids under 5.

 Saturday’s event marks this year’s final night of racing at All American Speedway. Bill McAnally Racing Promotions ran a trimmed schedule of events this season, after signing a long-term agreement in May to operate all motorsports events at the track. 

 Placer County Fairgrounds, where the track is located, was renamed @the Grounds after Placer Valley Tourism took over management of the 61-acre property more than a year ago and began a renovation project of more than $40 million for the repair and updating of existing buildings and parking lots.
