Chico, CA – April 14, 2016…With the 26th annual Dave Bradway Jr. Memorial fast approaching we’re happy to announce that the fan group known as Hoserville will once again partner with the heat races at the event on Saturday April 30.
This will be the 14th consecutive season that Hoserville is a part of the heat races during the King of the West 410 Sprint Car Series event at Silver Dollar Speedway. Each 10-lap heat race winner on Saturday April 30 will receive a Hoosier right rear tire plus five sleeves of tear offs.
Hoserville has been involved with the heat races at the Dave Bradway Jr. Memorial since 2003 and it has grown to be a major part of the event each year. The heat winners will all stop on the front stretch for a quick interview and then head up into the stands to give a lucky child a trophy to take home.
The Dave Bradway Jr. Memorial pays tribute to fallen race car driver Dave Bradway Jr., who lost his life in a Sprint Car crash at Skagit Speedway’s Dirt Cup in 1987. Bradway was a driver destined for stardom in Sprint Car racing and the event held in his memory has become a cornerstone for the King of the West 410 Sprint Car Series each season. It marks round two in the fight for the KWS championship, with the season-opener taking place at Placerville Speedway the week before on April 23.
It’s also become a tradition at the start of the night to hand out the Carwash Mike Fast Time Award at the Bradway. The winner of the award will take home a custom one of a kind Jagermeister Trophy & a Coors Light Cowboy Hat, in honor of super fan Carwash Mike Avilla, who passed away in 2011. The Carwash Mike Fast Time Award has been captured the last four years by Rico Abreu, Tim Kaeding, Roger Crockett & Bud Kaeding respectively.
If anyone would like to add to the fast time award, hard charger award, purchase a lap or add anything to the night, please contact Dave & Dianne Durica at Durica1414@sbcglobal.net or 916-988-5958.
The Dave Bradway Jr. Memorial features a 40-lap main event to conclude the night. Information and updates on the event will be found at www.racepmg.com & http://www.silverdollarspeedway.com along with both the KWS and Silver Dollar Speedway Facebook pages.
Silver Dollar Speedway is located on the Silver Dollar Fairgrounds, a half-mile west of SR 99 on Park Ave in Chico, California. Camping is available on the fairgrounds for the weekend.
