Marysville, CA - September 6, 2006... Promoter Greg Kearns reported today that TCS
official Hal Smedley will begin a long recovery period after his freak
accident at Twin Cities Speedway last Saturday night. Smedley, 65, was
injured when a sprint car went out of control on a qualifying run and hit
him. Smedley continues to be monitored by the staff at Rideout Hospital in
Marysville. After many hours in surgery Kearns reports that Smedley is
stable and his life is not threatened. Though his injuries are grave, Kearns
was optimistic that Smedley would fully recover over time.
Kearns also said that the BCRA Midget Lites
will be added to the 9/16 show. Early season differences have been smoothed
over and California’s oldest sanctioning body is back at Twin Cities for a
full program capped by a twenty-lap feature event.
Hunt Magneto Sprint Car Champion Charlie Marrs
will head a strong contingent of fire breathing wingless sprint car stars on
September 16th. Marrs swept the program on Labor Day Saturday and
capped a fine 2006 with his first sprint car title. Drivers from all over
northern California will be on hand for the night of competition. The TCS
MiniStocks, and the Sprint 100s will be on the program with the Hunt
Sprinters and the BCRA. Spectator gates open at 5PM and racing will begin
promptly at 7PM.
