PLACERVILLE, Calif. – The Tribute to Mac Tiner is shaping up to be one of the biggest events of the year at Placerville Speedway, with some of the most lucrative purses of the year up for grabs.
Thanks to the efforts and money raised by the Tiner family, along with Russell Motorsports Inc., the Oct. 3 running of the event will hand out $5,094 to the winner of the winged 360 sprint car feature. The 24-car starting field will also be a guaranteed $394-to-start.
In addition to that, the Tiner family has raised enough to add $1,000 to each of the other three classes, with that money being spread throughout the purses respectively for the Limited Late Models, Pure Stocks and Midget Lites.
Jerry and Frances Ahart have also donated extra money as well that has been allocated towards the Limited Late Model winner and Winged Sprint Car victor, respectively, next week.
The Tribute to Mac Tiner on Saturday, Oct. 3 also marks the final time this season that Winged Sprint Cars, Limited Late Models and Pure Stocks will grace the Placerville Speedway red clay.
