Mason Moore returns to the seat this weekend during Golden State Challenge Series season finale in Placerville

By Gary Thomas

Princeton, CA – August 18, 2009…After sitting out since getting injured on Memorial Day Weekend Princeton, California's Mason Moore is scheduled to return to competition this Saturday night at the Placerville Speedway for the Golden State Challenge 410 Sprint Car Series season finale.

The 2009 year is Moore's third season behind the wheel of a sprint car however, it came to a halt in late May at the Silver Dollar Speedway when he suffered a fractured fourth vertebra during a hot-lap crash.

Since then Moore has been recuperating at home, while also getting out to the track to visit friends and watch the action as much as possible. "I really have to thank my mom and dad, my family and everyone at the races for being so great to me," the 18 year-old said. "I've had a lot of support whenever I was able to attend the races and have had a lot of people come up and ask how I was doing so that was pretty nice. I just want everyone to know how much I've appreciated it." 

Moore has also been eagerly anticipating the chance to get back in a sprint car and is very excited for it to come at the Placerville Speedway, during what will also be the final event of the Golden State Challenge King of California Series season. "I was ready to get back in a sprint car last month," Moore said. "Being at the track and not being able to get in a car is killer so I've been counting down the days for this Placerville race."

The Placerville Speedway in fact has become a favorite of Moore's after being able to run weekly at the track since joining the Friends & Family Racing team. "I've really enjoyed running with Tooch and Alan at Placerville and it has quickly become my favorite track to race at," said Moore, who set fast-time on two occasions during his four weekly starts at the quarter-mile bullring prior the injury. "Placerville seems to be one the raciest places around because it slicks off and gets that big cushion up top to lean on, which makes it a lot of fun because you can usually move around on it. I'm really looking forward to Saturday because I've never been able to run a 410 at the place and it's something I've wanted to do."

The Golden State Challenge 410 show this weekend will mark the 24th round of the season for the series and will see Los Angeles, CA's Tyler Walker bring a 21-point lead in the standings over Chico's Jonathan Allard, as the tour that travels throughout California and into Oregon hits its last event of the year. "I would love to be able to run with Golden State full-time to gain the experience of running with the various drivers and all the different tracks," Moore said. "When you look at the top-five in points with them it doesn't get much better than that out here and I'm looking forward to running with those guys this weekend."

For the rest of the season the driver known as "Primetime" will look to have some fun and try to get back into the groove as soon as possible. "I just can't wait to get back going again," he said. "Hopefully I can quickly get back into the swing of things and maybe pick up a win or two before the year is done. Last season I won a couple of races so I definitely would like to get one this year as well."

Prior to Saturday Moore will hot lap his family owned, Rolling Hills Casino, Moore Insurance Services, Withrow's Motorsports No. 22 sprinter on Friday night at Silver Dollar Speedway to make sure everything is good to go. "I'm excited to hot lap on Friday and want to make sure my body can take it before I compete on Saturday," said Moore. "I'll tell you though I've never been more ready to get back on the track and can't wait to be able to jump on the gas, feel the power and go."

Then on Saturday Moore will climb back aboard the F&F Racing No. x1 sprinter to make his actual return to competitive action. The Princeton driver was very quick at Placerville Speedway in the Steve Tuccelli/Alan Bradway owned machine early in the season, with his best night coming on April 20 when he set fast-time and finished third in the main event behind veterans Andy Forsberg and Andy Gregg. "We were really fast in the weekly races so hopefully we'll have some luck on Saturday and run up front," Moore concluded. 

On Friday August 28 Moore will then take to the Silver Dollar Speedway for Coca-Cola Championship Night, in what will be his first evening of racing back in the family sprint car. Mason Moore Racing would like to thank all of our sponsors for their continued support including Rolling Hills Casino, Moore Insurance Services, Withrow's Motorsports, Selover’s Paint & Body, NOS Energy Drink, Blue Shield, Platinum Powder Coating, Napa Auto Parts, Butler Built Performance and Simpson Race Products. “I want to thank my crew chief Mike Clarke, my whole team and all of our sponsors for sticking by me through all of this,” Moore said. “I have some great people behind me so that makes it nice and I’m thankful for it.”

Golden State Challenge 410 Sprint Car Series season finale this Saturday night August 22 at Placerville Speedway/ Tyler Walker & SC Motorsports looking for first King of California title

By Gary Thomas

Placerville, CA – August 18, 2009…After kicking off the season in late-March at the Placerville Speedway the Golden State Challenge 410 Sprint Car Series season has come full circle and will conclude the 2009 year this Saturday evening at the track located on the El Dorado County Fairgrounds known for its distinctive red-clay, high-banks and close competition.

The Placerville Speedway is the closest that the Golden State Challenge Series gets to the capital city of Sacramento, which is located just 40 minutes from the track and regularly plays host to packed crowds and loyal fans whenever big events come its way. The event on Saturday will also mark the first time since 2000 that the series, which annually crowns the King of California, will end the season at a track other than Chico's Silver Dollar Speedway.

The man that won the most recent visit to the Placerville Speedway is also the driver that will lead the Golden State Challenge Series into the final event of the season looking to bring home his first career King of California title, with that being the always exciting Tyler Walker of Los Angeles. The 30 year-old wheel-man of the SC Motorsports, NMI Industrial Contractors No. 24 will bring a 21-point lead into the red-clay bullring this Saturday as he'll be searching for his ninth GSC win of the season to put a cap on the title.

Walker this past week also finished 14th in the main event at the Knoxville Nationals after running an impressive fifth on his preliminary night. "This isn't exactly the finish we wanted obviously, but we ran strong all week and I'm proud of that," Walker said in his team's press release. "We'll just go onto Placerville and try to put a period on the GSC season because we want this championship bad." Walker's eight wins with the traveling 410 sprint car tour this season is one shy of breaking the all-time record and he'll certainly be gunning to make history on Saturday at a track that is the closest to his Sacramento area based Scott & Kathy Chastain owned team.

The driver that chased Walker to the finish line in Placerville on May 30 is Chico's Jonathan Allard, who comes into the Golden State Challenge Series finale 21 digits behind Walker for the lead. The two-time King of California took over the GSC point lead on Memorial Day Weekend, before losing it back Walker on July 11 in what has been a tremendously close back-and-fourth battle for much of the season. Allard has picked up one victory with the series this year, with that win coming at the annual Dave Bradway Jr. Memorial in May.

Allard also brought home a 15th place finish in last weeks Knoxville Nationals to give the Golden State Challenge Series a pair of regular's in the top 15, during an event that saw a total of 107 drivers in competition. The pilot of the Williams Motorsports, K&N Filters No. 0 has been very strong at the Placerville Speedway in recent years having scored seven finishes of second or better in the past 10 GSC stops at the track. Allard's nine fast-time efforts this season also lead the series in that category.

Thirteen-time King of California Brent Kaeding opened the Golden State Challenge Series season in victory lane at the Placerville Speedway in March and comes into the finale sitting third in the standings. "BK" has driven his Al's Roofing, Kaeding Performance No. 69 machine to four victories this year with GSC to run his career win total with the series up to 83 as the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame Member has put together another strong season of competition. Kaeding also currently sits atop the GLR 360 track standings at the Ocean Speedway in Watsonville.

Scotts Valley's Evan Suggs will look to solidify the fourth spot in the Golden State Challenge Series standings on Saturday at the helm of his Suggs Racing, Lucas Oil Products No. 33e mount. During the season opener at Placerville in March the 22 year-old tied Tim Kaeding's all-time track record with a clocking of 9.913 in qualifying and then tallied a career best finish at the track by running fifth in the main event. Suggs has had a solid last couple months of the season as he continues to search for his first career GSC victory.

Seventeen-year-old Kyle Larson of Elk Grove will look to lock up the Rookie of the Year Award this weekend as he finishes off his first full year with the Golden State Challenge Series. Larson sits fifth in the points and has been impressive at every track the tour has visited as he's adapted to virtually every surface in no time at all aboard his Vertullo Racing, Starr Property Management No. 83v. The youngster scored a fifth place finish after starting from the sixth row in the most recent GSC event in Placerville and he'll look for his second career win with the series on Saturday.

Loomis, CA's Kyle Hirst has been one of the hottest drivers on the west coast in recent weeks and will look to pick up his third Golden State Challenge Series victory of the season this weekend. The 21 year-old driver of the GP Development, Summit Airworks No. 6 has won a total of seven main events this season, including GSC victories at the Salute to Walter T Ross in Calistoga and the Tribute to Gary Patterson in Chico. Hirst is also currently on a streak of three wins in the last four races at the Silver Dollar Speedway.

Grass Valley's Jason Statler has had a strong season, yet is still searching for that first GSC win of the year, which he'll look to accomplish this weekend behind the wheel of his Statler Racing, DF Rios Construction No. 00. The former King of California has scored a trio of runner-up finishes this season with GSC, including the season opener in Placerville. Local driver Andy Gregg has also had a solid season in limited starts with GSC having tallied four top-five finishes in seven appearances aboard his Guts Racing, Dale Miller Plumbing No. 16x. Included in those finishes is a pair of third place efforts in the two GSC Placerville events so far this year and he'll look for his first career series win at his home track on Saturday.

Auburn's Andy Forsberg will be gunning to win his first Placerville Speedway Golden State Challenge Series main event on Saturday. "Mr. Excitement" has won four main events in his GSC career, but none have come at the track he calls home and he'll look to finally breakthrough on Saturday to also end a winless drought with the series that dates back to 2004. Forsberg this year has eight feature wins overall, with six of those coming in Placerville aboard his A&A Motorsports, K&N Filters No. 92.  

Saturday's event will also mark the return of Princeton's Mason Moore, who was injured in a hot lap crash in Chico on May 23. The 18 year-old will be behind the wheel of the familiar Friends & Family Racing, A.R.T. Enterprise No. x1, a car that won the 2003 & '04 Placerville Speedway track titles with former driver David Robinson Jr. Moore last season finished third in the Silver Dollar Speedway 410 standings with a pair of victories.

Other possible entrants on hand Saturday will include Ripon's Brandon Carey, Australian super-star Robbie Farr, Fremont's Brent Bjork, Elk Grove's Greg Decaires, Chico's Brad Bumgarner, Nevada City's Pat Harvey and more. The front gate will open at 5pm on Saturday night with qualifying scheduled to get underway around 6 and racing at 6:30. All seating will be general admission during the night with adult tickets costing $16, juniors $11 and children $5.

An early arrival to the track will be recommended as the crowd is routinely large for any special event at the Placerville Speedway. The high-banked quarter-mile clay oval is located at the El Dorado County Fairgrounds in Placerville. For more information on the track visit

So far this season Allard has also finished among the top-10 in every single GSC main event.

Auburn's Andy Forsberg will be searching to win his first career Placerville Speedway Golden State Challenge Series main event on Saturday aboard his A&A Motorsports, K&N Filters No. 92. The four-time Civil War Series champion has been longing to win a GSC 410 event at his home track for many years and will look to make it happen this weekend. Forsberg recently accomplished another long-time goal when he picked up his first career Calistoga Speedway victory on August 8.

Talented Aussi Robbie Farr is scheduled to be in action this Friday night at the Silver Dollar Speedway in Chico for a Feather Falls Casino point event, before heading to the Placerville Speedway for the Golden State Challenge 410 Series finale on Saturday.

Farr last season brought home a runner-up finish in one Friday night start at SDS on August 15 and also made the A-main on Saturday night of the Gold Cup Race of Champions. Crew chief Nick Speed made a GSC start at the helm of the East Coast Pipeline No. 7 on August 1 Petaluma, but unfortunately ended the night upside down in the main event.

Jonathan Allard ready for GSC finale following 15th place finish in Knoxville Nationals main event

By Gary Thomas

Placerville, CA – August 19, 2009…With 107 drivers in competition at the 49th annual Knoxville Nationals Chico, CA's Jonathan Allard accomplished a long-time goal by scoring enough points to make his first Nationals A-main start and brought home a 15th place finish in the 40 lap finale Sunday night, which was won by Tony Stewart Racing's Donny Schatz for the fourth straight season.

Going into Saturday's finale at the Knoxville Raceway Allard sat 13th in the overall points as he got set to make his first ever Nationals main event start, but had to wait an extra day as heavy rains pushed the action back to Sunday evening. Lining-up in the seventh row Allard hung right around his starting spot for much of the feature and after 40 laps of racing crossed the checkered flag in 15th at the helm of the Williams Motorsports No. 0 sprinter.

Although wanting to finish a little higher up in the rundown the experience was invaluable for the two-time King of California as he ran with some best sprint car drivers in the world during the 40-lap finale. "This event is so tough and grueling that making the A-main is a great accomplishment for this whole team," Allard said. "Going into the Nationals our goal was to get into the feature for the first time and we got that done so we couldn't be happier. It was a great experience and something that I can take into it next year."

With Knoxville done Allard will focus his attention back to California and finishing the 2009 Golden State Challenge 410 Sprint Car Series season this Saturday night at the Placerville Speedway. Going into the event the two-time King of California ranks second in the standings and is 21-points back of Tyler Walker for the lead. "We've given it a hard run this year and I can't thank my guys enough for everything they've done this season," Allard said. "We've been right in the thick of things pretty much night-in-night-out and that's really all you can ask for."

Out of the 20 Golden State Challenge races this year Allard in fact leads the series in fast-times with nine, top-five's with 16 and top-10's with a perfect 20 out of 20. The number that makes the difference though is Walker's eight victories compared to Allard's one, which has been enough to push the Los Angeles driver ahead by the current mark. "We've had a few races the last month where we didn't end up how we wanted to and when you're running against a guy like Tyler Walker you have to be on your game every single time you hit the track."

Despite scoring just that one win so far with GSC Allard has been on the podium in 12 of the 20 races, including six runner-up finishes, with five of those second place efforts coming to Walker. "It's been an exciting season on the track with Golden State and the competition up front has been as good as its been in years," the Chico driver said. "There have been a lot of times this season where myself and Tyler have been fighting for a win and he's been able to squeak it out at the finish, so this championship could be going either way when you look back at the races and I think that's made it pretty amazing to show just how important each and every night is."

Going into Placerville Allard will look to break a recent trend of fifth place finishes that he has amassed the last three events and try to get that second win of the year. "The last few races didn't end up how we've wanted and it's hurt in the points a little bit, but we're not focusing on that anymore and just want to try and finish this season off with a win," said Allard, who has finished second or better in seven of the past 10 GSC visits to the Placerville Speedway. "We've been really fast at Placerville this year and I feel that we should have won both the of the races so far this season at the place so hopefully we can get it done this time around and finally get this car back into victory lane with Golden State."

The front gate will open at 5pm on Saturday night with qualifying scheduled to get underway around 6 and racing at 6:30. All seating will be general admission during the night with adult tickets costing $16, juniors $11 and children $5. An early arrival to the track will be recommended as the crowd is routinely large for any special event at the Placerville Speedway. The high-banked quarter-mile clay oval is located at the El Dorado County Fairgrounds in Placerville.

RACERS BARBEQUE PUT ON HOLD UNITL 2010

FROM: Troy Hennig

Date: August 19, 2009

(Chico, CA 8-19-2009)…After 18 years of hosting the Racer’s Barbeque John Perry (JP) is taking a year off. The Racer’s Barbeque was an annual tradition on the Friday afternoon of Gold Cup. Many of the race fans and teams ended up at JP’s Paint and Body Works for the great food, beautiful cars and immense atmosphere. “It was just time for me to take a year off and relax during the Gold Cup,” said JP from his office. “It takes a lot of hard work to make the barbeque a success. But on the same hand it doesn’t allow me the freedom to mingle in the pit area after the races on Wednesday or Thursday. I think this year I’m going to do a little mingling.”

This is not a permanent situation. JP assured us that he would be back stronger than ever in 2010. He will once again host the Knoxville Bound Benefit that sends a person with a terminal illness to an Outlaw event. JP will also renew the Racer’s Barbeque in 2010 during the Gold Cup. Even though both events will be sorely missed we can look forward to them coming back in 2010.

John Perry has been an amazing friend to the local racer’s and Silver Dollar Speedway. His shop is located at 1840 Park Ave in Chico, roughly one-mile from the fairgrounds. If you need to contact JP give him a call at 530-342-1328.
