Stock car racing and boat trailer racing is happening this weekend at the Contra
Costa County Fair in Antioch.
On Saturday, check out the stock car racing at the Speedway. Gates open at 5 p.m. and racing begins at 6:30. This event will consist of heat races for all divisions – Dirt Modifieds, Hobby Stocks and 4 Bangers.
On Sunday, see the demolition and destruction of the boat trailer races and
roll-over competition. This event will feature hobby stocks and mini trucks pulling trailers with boats. With each lap, cars are encouraged to bump into the trailers and try to knock the boats off the trailers. It’s part race and part demolition!
