I recently discovered that I enjoy motor racing. The delirious, first high was a trip to the Sacramento Mile. I’m hooked. New to the scene but deeply into our State Parks, I was surprised that Prairie City State Vehicular Recreation Area SVRA is only a 20 minute drive to Rancho Cordova. Offroad enthusiasts regularly gather here, especially on weekends.
If you want to check them out, tomorrow is a great opportunity. This stop on the NorCal Rock Races tour is the final round of the 2012 championship series, featuring three classes of competitors from amateurs to world class. It is the only private West Coast qualifier for the 2013 King of Hammers, which is known as “the toughest road race on the planet” due to the challenging terrain in Johnson Valley, CA.
Admission is only $15 for a day of racing starting Saturday at 10am.
