The roller coaster 2020 racing season brought another surprise on September 10th as United States Auto Club (USAC) officials announced that the canceled September 6th “West Coast Stock Car / Motorsports Hall of Fame Challenge Race” at Petaluma Speedway with the USAC Western States and the Bay Cities Racing Association (BCRA) Midgets will be made up on Saturday, October 3rd.
The September 6th program was canceled after track promoter Rick Faeth received a direct request from Petaluma Mayor Teresa Barrett and City Manager Peggy Flynn. The management at the Sonoma-Marin Fairgrounds promised a makeup date and offered Faeth the October 3rd date. .
The October 3rd event will be the first of two “West Coast Stock Car / Motorsports Hall of Fame Challenge” races with the second event scheduled for October 24th at Petaluma Speedway.
“The Challenge” offers extra prize money will be up for grabs to the top-five drivers in points from the October 3rd and 24th events at Petaluma.
