The All American Speedway in Roseville celebrates our nation’s independence with Armed Forces Day and a Fireworks Spectacular on July 4. On Saturday night, the speedway will honor the brave men and woman who serve our country so well by admitting all uniformed soldiers absolutely free As part of the celebration, All American Speedway (Placer County Fair) has teamed up with the City of Roseville and Sierra View Country Club to make this one of the best fireworks extravaganzas in the history of Roseville. “In the past we sat out on the Fourth of July so the fireworks could be held on the fairgrounds,” said Director of Speedway Operations Dennis Gage. “This year the agreement allows us to race, and the city and Sierra View have combined for a bigger and better fireworks show. The good news is the Country Club is directly across the street from the fairgrounds so you will get a perfect view of the display from our grandstands.” Pyrotechnics are estimated at 9:15 p.m. and there will be racing. Championship week No. 10 rolls into AAS. NASCAR eyes are on Jason Romero (No. 8) who leads all drivers in the Late Model Division and is ranked second in the state.
