Pacific Challenge Series To Return To Shasta May 6

SACRAMENTO, CALIFORNIA (February 10, 2017) - The Pacific Challenge Series presented by has confirmed the ninth date for its 2017 campaign, to bring the touring Super Late Model series to four tracks signed for the upcoming season. The PCS will return to its largest track at Anderson, CA's Shasta Speedway on May 6. It will mark the seventh time PCS has raced at the 3/8ths mile located on the Tehama County Fairgrounds.

Tracy Bolin of Valley Springs earned his first career series win when he topped two-time series champion Jeremy Doss in a thriller last June. The most successful driver at the track is arguably Eric Schmidt of Roseville, with multiple victories in both Open Show races and PCS events. Schmidt won all four PCS races at Shasta in 2013 en route to the series championship. He looked poised to win the 2016 event before a late race tangle with Doss ended his race on lap 77. Schmidt also won the Memorial Day weekend Tri-Holiday race at Stockton for a strong partial season with PCS.

Pacific Challenge Series officials anticipate adding one additional race to complete the 2017 series calendar. Racers will take on five different race tracks ranging from quarter-miles to 3/8ths miles in one of the most competitive series on the West Coast.
