(Perris, CA, June 24, 2011) The biggest bang for entertainment dollars next weekend will be on Saturday, July 2nd, at Perris Auto Speedway on the Lake Perris Fairgrounds. Beginning at 3:00 PM, the popular Riverside County clay oval will play host to the City of Perris Centennial Celebration, the biggest and best fireworks show in Riverside County and exciting Sprint Car racing. All three events will come for the price of one ticket. Advance tickets are available by calling 1-800 595-4849 or online at:

The popular racetrack, which is known as one of the finest dirt track facilities in the world, will be presenting something for everyone at the Independence Day program. Before the track’s trademark racing show begins at 7:00 PM, there will midway games and giant inflatables for the kids to play on, a trackless race car train ride, a live band, dunk tank featuring some of the racing stars and an on track autograph and photo session where the fans can meet all of the drivers.

“Our Independence Day show is always our biggest show of the year,” promoter Don Kazarian said. “This year, in addition to celebrating Independence Day, we are pleased to be hosting the City of Perris Centennial Celebration. They (City of Perris) are bringing in a lot of entertaining things for the fans to do. There will be fun for everyone whether they are 8 or 80. The kids are going to have a great time with all of the different games, inflateables and rides we have planned for them. Combine all of that fun with the spectacular fireworks/sky concert and Sprint Car racing and it is going to be our best Independence Day ever.”

The Fireworks/Sky Concert, which is known around the west coast, has drawn “oohh’s and ahhh’s” from several hundred thousand fans since it began in 1996. Highlighted by sensational and unique fireworks every year, the celebration in the air is accompanied by crowd pleasing patriotic music.

In addition to all of the extra entertainment on Saturday, fans can witness the best on track action at “Southern California’s Home for Major League Sprint Car Racing,” with the popular Amsoil USAC/CRA Sprint Cars and the California Lightning Sprint Cars. Over the years drivers such as current NASCAR “Bad Boy” Kyle Busch, Kasey Kahne, David Gilliland, Dave Blaney, Rickie Stenhouse Jr., Jason Leffler, Josh Wise and many others have all plied their trade at Perris Auto Speedway.
