Sunday, October 10 is the 5th Annual Fred Owen's Truck Drags at

www.sacramentoraceway.com

sponsored by

http://www.orangevalediesel.com


Fred Owen is 72 years old; he and his old Studebaker Pickup have been fixtures at Sac Raceway for many years. This is his 5th year of renting the track for the day just so everyone can come out and have a good time. This event is open to all trucks -- both gas and diesel. Last year we had about
100 trucks show -- the split between gas and diesel was 50/50. This year we
hope to do better.

Last year we had slow trucks and fast trucks, we had folks come from all over
the West Coast -- we even had a little carnage on the track! This is a fun event -- very family friendly and open to all. Bring your old farm truck, your daily work truck, your full-on competition race truck, your rental truck or even the brand new one your Dad just bought the other day! :hehe:

Trophies will be awarded and if we get enough sponsors, we may be able to have CASH payouts! We have a few sponsors onboard but can always use more support.

For out of towners needing motels, there are plenty along the US 50 Corridor just North of the track. Camping will be allowed at the track.

For event times and more information go to
OR you can call DEAN at 916-989-9747

You'll get the best turn out with Brain Massetti of MLM. He was the one who put on the pulls at the raceway last year.

Cole is right, this is now a two day diesel event in Sacramento. Brian Massetti called me the other day to confirm that the pulls will take place Saturday nite in the roundy-round behind the main grandstand. All spectators attending the pulls on Saturday night will be given a wristband that will give them half price admission to the drags on Sunday.

Over night camping will be allowed at the track. Lets be responsible here and not act like a bunch of idiots, we have worked way too hard to get Sacramento on the map as a diesel-friendly venue, lets not screw it up the first time out of the gate.


just saying.....:blah::blah::blah:



lets have a good time and respect old Fred

Awesome! Glad Brian decided to join in the festivities! Should be a great way to end the '10 season. I just hope that 2 weeks is enough time for guys too fix any problems after Worlds in Topeka! :rockwoot:

Hey All,
This is kinda my intro to all the Nor Cal psd owners. I don't have a diesel yet(need a better job so I'm stuck in my F150) but have been on the forums getting any/all info I can for when I do get a diesel.

I live in the bay area and came up to the last drags at Sac and loved it so I'm hoping to make it to these pulls and drags.
