This weekend we will honor Tyler Wolf who at the tender age of 20, died because of a sprint car crash that took place at Calistoga Speedway in October of 2012. Since then, the Silver Dollar Speedway has honored this young man. Wolf won three sprint car main events in his career, all at Silver Dollar. His final regular-season win took place on Aug. 25, 2012, for which he was awarded the perennial 6-foot Pepsi trophy for that race.

Wolf was 19 and raced in a black No. 19 sprint car when he won the 2011 track title at Silver Dollar Speedway, becoming the youngest sprint car champion in the track’s history. Chuck Wolf said a new Tyler Wolf Memorial shirt is being made for Saturday. Extra financial incentives for the winged 360 sprint car drivers will be plentiful during the Wolf Memorial. Those details will be released once everything gets solidified from those generous sponsors.
