Mini stocks are among the classes of cars scheduled to compete on Aug. 1 at Douglas County Speedway.

The Pacific Racing Association has scheduled its first event of the 2020 season ā€” the Oregon Army National Guard Rumble on the River ā€” for Saturday, Aug. 1, at Douglas County Speedway.

Gates open at 1 p.m. and racing gets underway at 2.

Admission is $15 for ages 13-and-up. The grandstands will be partially open with a 250-person limit due to COVID-19 restrictions. Smokey Gā€™s BBQ will be serving food and PRA will have alcohol for sale.

Social distancing will be enforced.

Classes scheduled to race are Pro-Motors hornets, Knife River mini stocks, Roseburg Collision Center super stocks, Winchester Pub & Grill sport mods and Cow Creek mini figure 8s.

PRA hopes to hold more events during the summer, depending on the COVID-19 situation.

Contact the PRA via Facebook to purchase tickets.
