BUTTE COUNTY, Calif. - For the first time in years, the Mini Gold Cup Series is returning to the Silver Dollar Speedway track.

The race is returning to Chico after three years. 

"It's a crown of Jewel in California Racing," said Brad Sweet, a sprint car driver. 

The race is a springtime tradition that started in 1987. 

"It's come and gone over the years," said Troy Henning, communications director for Silver Dollar Speedway. "The weather has canceled our races. It kicks off about 30 races for us. So it's nice to get out, get the world outlaws here, the greatest show on dirt these guys are professional. If you've never seen the world of outlaws race you're in for a treat." 

This year, up to 40 drivers will be racing including Sweet of the World of Outlaws, who helped bring the event back to Chico. 

Many Camp Fire evacuees stayed at the race track and are still living in the surrounding areas. 

Now, every dollar from the tickets sold in the Mini Gold Cup will be donated to the California Fire Foundation and will also aid in wildfire relief. 

In addition to ticket donations "Outlaws California Fire Relief," tour shirts will be sold for $25, which each purchase also going toward the California Fire Foundation.
