Doug Lockin will be in northern California on September 4-6 in conjunction with the Gold Cup Race of Champions sprint car races at the Silver Dollar Speedway in Chico.

The raffle car, which debuted at this year’s Kings Royal at Tony Stewart’s Eldora Speedway, can be seen at the two-day United States Auto Club/California Racing Association (USAC/CRA) Louis Vermeil Classic at the Calistoga Speedway on the Napa County Fairgrounds.
