“Last year we had Kyle scheduled to race with us on that Wednesday night but unfortunately he wasn’t able too because of an injury he sustained in the NASCAR series the weekend prior to our event,” said Sweet.  “I know how disappointed he was last year in not racing against us but I also know how much he is looking forward to competing at this year’s race.”

On March 29th, it will mark Sweet’s third time being a promoter.  His own career started at local tracks like Placerville Speedway.  “It feels good to be a part of something local,” said Sweet.  “The outpouring of support from the fans, sponsors and teams has been overwhelming.”  Even though Sweet will be wearing the promoter hat don’t forget that he is also a fierce competitor behind the wheel.  Sweet is a 21-time winner in the WoO Series and earned the 2014 Rookie of the Year honors.  He has won prestigious races such as the Kings Royal at Eldora (2013), the Short Track Nationals (2010) and Belleville Nationals (2008). He also has six career top-10 finishes in the NASCAR XFinity Series driving for JR Motorsports and Turner Motorsports.

 

The traveling Outlaws will have their hands full with a talented field of local drivers led by Rutherford’s Rico Abreu.  The popular Northern California driver has beat the Outlaws before and will get another chance at the Placerville Short Track Showdown.  Reigning King of the West champion Kyle Hirst of Paradise is back with Roth Motorsports No. 83.  Auburn’s Andy Forsberg is a multi-time champion at Placerville Speedway and will look to put the A & A Stepping Stone No. 92 in victory lane.  Campbell’s Bud Kaeding, Hanford’s DJ Netto and Cory Eliason of Kingsburg are other California based driver’s hopeful of beating the World of Outlaws at Brad Sweet’s Placerville Short Track Outlaw Showdown presented by Riebes Auto parts.
