CALISTOGA, Calif. – Calistoga Speedway officials have announced that tickets are now on sale for the 13th annual Louie Vermeil Classic on Sept. 4-5.
The Vermeil is the half mile oval’s traditional Labor Day weekend event, which features two nights of racing with both the AMSOIL USAC/CRA non-winged sprint cars and the winged sprint cars of the King of the West/NARC Fujitsu Sprint Car Series.
Promoter Tommy Hunt, of HMC Promotions, noted that cooperation of local officials made scheduling the race possible.
“We are thankful to Napa County and the City of Calistoga for honoring their past commitment to auto racing at this historic facility,” said Hunt, as the city completes a complicated purchase of the Napa County Fairgrounds property – which includes the race track – from the county.
Calistoga Speedway, which has run a very limited schedule for two years as the sale has progressed, will have a busy September, with the Wine Country Showdown featuring the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series scheduled two weeks later on Saturday, Sept. 19.
