PLACERVILLE, Calif. – Placerville Speedway will honor a Hall of Fame car owner during the inaugural running of the Tribute to Mac Tiner on Oct. 3.

With the season winding down, track officials looks forward to honoring a man that was a big part of the racing scene in Northern California.

Four divisions will make up the show, including winged 360 sprint cars, limited late models, pure stocks and the BCRA Midget Lites.

Mac Tiner Sr. passed away earlier this year and was a Hall of Fame inductee of the West Capital Raceway, NCRA and Calistoga Speedway, respectively.

In addition to being a multi-time winner at Roseville Speedway, Tiner also picked up track championships with his son Mac Jr. driving during the 1988 season at Grass Valley, as well as with Al Young Racing and Jeff Young driving in 1996 at Marysville Raceway.

Tiner was also known as being the fastest man on the infield at West Capital, as he and brother Johnny teamed up to have immense success at the track. Mac was even a multi-time winner at the famed Sacramento Autorama.

The Tiner family is raising money to elevate the purse for the Oct. 3 event. Those wishing to donate should contact Steven Tiner at 916-417-2279 or Rod Tiner at 916-704-4123.

The grandstands will be closed for spectators and all pit area guidelines remain in place. To view the pit area guidelines, visit
