ROSEVILLE, Calif. – Bill McAnally Racing Promotions has obtained a long-term contract for the operation of all motorsports events at California’s All American Speedway.

“We’re very excited about the opportunity to develop the speedway into a successful motorsports attraction,” said BMRP’s Bill McAnally. “We’re proud to partner with Placer County and Placer Valley Tourism in making this happen and for the speedway to be a part of the future of @the Grounds.

“We want it to be a place for families to get together and enjoy some great entertainment,” McAnally said. “I remember what it was like when I raced there. We see the potential for the speedway, based on the success we’ve experienced in recent years with the big October event.”

That annual event, promoted by BMRP, has been cited as the biggest one-day event of the year in Placer County.

“We want to build on that energy and excitement,” McAnally said.

BMRP is bringing in key personnel with a wealth of experience to anchor the speedway’s new management team. Frank Jordan, a familiar face to many in the racing local community, will head that group as the Director of Competition. Steve Fensler brings his extensive background in racing and will serve in a strategic position as Technical Advisor in support of Jordan. Kevin Green, with nearly 20 years at NASCAR and a racing resume that stems back to his work at All American Speedway, will oversee the public relations effort.

The Placer County Fairgrounds, where the track is located, was renamed @the Grounds after Placer Valley Tourism took over management of the 61-acre property last July and began a renovation project of more than $40 million for the repair and updating of existing buildings and parking lots.

The renovation makes this a great time to start making changes to the speedway, McAnally said. A big part of his plan will focus on community involvement.

“The track is part of the community and we want the community to benefit from its success,” he said. “Our aim is for the venue to be an asset to the local area. It will take a lot of hard work and won’t happen overnight. That’s why it was vital to make this a long-term deal.”

 

McAnally emphasized the need to be a good neighbor in operating the facility. He plans to feature top-level motorsports events, but with fewer events overall.

Divisions slated to compete at the third-mile paved oval include the Jr. Late Models, Late Models, Super Stock A, Super Stock B, Limited Modifieds and F4.

While he sees good things for the track this year, McAnally stressed the need to view this effort on a long-term basis.

“We plan to lay the foundation this year to build on as we move ahead,” he said. “As we pointed out, this is a long-range program and will take some time; but we know the potential is there to develop a great facility for Roseville and Placer County.”

McAnally owns two NAPA AutoCare Centers in the local area and operates a championship winning NASCAR K&N Pro Series race program from his Roseville facility. His involvement at All Amercian Speedway goes back more than 30 years.
