Family Night Saturday April 12

Filed under Speedway News

On Saturday night April 12 at Evergreen Speedway the first of four Family Nights presented by Frontier Communications lets everyone in for just $10 with children 10 and under FREE. The night will feature the Outlaw Figure Eights, Northwest Pro 4 Truck Series, Les Schwab Tires NASCAR Street Stocks, Foster Press NASCAR Mini-Stocks and Interstate Batteries Hornets. Racing begins at 6pm at Washington State’s only NASCAR track located at the Evergreen State Fairgrounds in Monroe, WA. Evergreen Speedway is the home of the $100,000.00 Summer Showdown on June 27 & 28.

The former Super Figure Eight division, now known as the Outlaw Figure Eights, makes its season debut. Last year’s champion Ricky Dietz will be back to defend. Others expected for the season opening race will be Nick Gunderson, Mike Steltz, Seth Funden and Pat Clark to name just a few of the many.

Street Stock defending champion Roger Drake, started last season with three wins, has started his defense with a win in last week’s division season opening race. A dry track could change things this week.

Bobby DeYoung, Mini-Stock driver, had a strong car on opening night and will return to see if the dry track is as good.

The Hornet division opened their season two weeks ago. The winner of that main was Mark Hubbard. Last year’s runner-up in this division Scott Hunt was second.

Another group making their season debut is the traveling Northwest Pro 4 Truck Series. This series will be at Evergreen six times in the 2014 season with the Bill Saul’s Memorial Championship race on Saturday September 13.

Déjà Vu for Drake at Evergreen Speedway

Monroe, WA (April 6, 2014): On Saturday April 5 Evergreen Speedway opened their NASCAR season. The weather had one win and four other divisions had their winners. The feature of the night was to be the 125-lap Coca Cola Challenge for the Emerald City Harley-Davidson NASCAR Super Late Models. Unfortunately the weather won that one and the event has been postponed. Four other divisions did get their races in despite the wet conditions. The 2013 Les Schwab Tires NASCAR Street Stock Division champion opened his defense of the title with a win. Roger Drake as he did in 2013 opened his season in victory lane. Bobby DeYoung, who has been working tirelessly on the rescue/recovery mission in Oso, WA, took time off to come race in the Foster Press NASCAR Mini-Stock Division and held off all challengers for an emotional win. Steve Peters won the NASCAR Super Stock Figure 8 main and Seth Funden won the Buzz Inn Steakhouse NASCAR Stinger 8 feature.

The Coca Cola Challenge 125 for Super Late Models will be rescheduled for later in the season. It was disappointing to everyone that the weather front moved over the track during the early afternoon and did not leave until late in the evening. There were 19 cars with some in the pits and others waiting to see what the weather was going to do.

Street Stocks are a rain or shine division and winner Roger Drake showed his prowess on the 3/8-mile with a slick surface. In 2013 Drake started the season, also a wet night, with a win. Drake went on to win the first three races of the season on his way to his first NASCAR championship. Drake waited for the condition of the track to get a bit drier as he took the lead from Jim Foti. Darrell Lutovsky finished third ahead of Kenny Erickson and Steve Ptacek.

Emotions were high as the fans watched a great race in the Mini-Stock Division. Winner Bobby DeYoung had the crowd cheering him on as he held off  those  that tried to steal the victory away from his firm grip. DeYoung who owns a logging and excavating company has been putting in countless volunteer hours working on the rescue and recovery after the terrible mudslide in Oso, WA. It was hard for him to hold back the tears as he was being interviewed after the win. Second place finisher Andrew Schukar did not make it easy for DeYoung. Multiple times Schukar pulled alongside in the wet conditions and tried to make the pass. Third went to Brad Thomas, fourth to rookie Chad Sinner and fifth went to another rookie Trenton Moriarity.

Steve Peters had no challengers in the new Super Stock Figure 8 Division main. Peters, a veteran of figure eight racing, showed that even a wet track would not slow his pursuit of another win. Second place went to another figure eight veteran Doug Delfel. Third place finisher Quentin Borreson held off Steve Schoenfeldt and Brian Little who finished fourth and fifth respectively.

The car that Seth Funden used for the win in the Stinger 8 Division is normally driven by Nicole Pollard. Funden used his figure eight racing skills by wasting no time in taking the lead in the 30-lap main. Joselyn LaFleur finished a distant second. Third went to newcomer to racing Toby Jenkins who made a last lap pass on Matt Somerville. Fifth went to Gary Rarden.

Next up at Evergreen Speedway on April 12 as part of their 60th anniversary season, the first of four Family Nights presented by Frontier Communications. All adults will get in for $10 while 10 and under will be free. The Outlaw Figure Eight Division will make their season debut as will the Northwest Pro 4 Truck Series. In addition the Les Schwab Tires NASCAR Street Stock, Foster Press NASCAR Mini-Stock and Interstate Batteries Hornet Divisions are back in action. Racing will be at 6pm and front gates will open at 4pm. The normal 50/50 raffle will not happen on Saturday as the hat will be passed and money collected will be distributed to the charities in Oso, WA

More Championships Set for September 21 ‘Rain or Shine’

September 20, 2013 by  
Filed under Speedway News

With three championships decided last weekend at Evergreen Speedway five more are to be decided this Saturday, September 21. Championship Night presented by Alfy’s Pizza features championships for the Emerald City Harley-Davidson in Lynnwood NASCAR Super Figure Eight, Classic NASCAR Figure Eight, Buzz Inn Steakhouse NASCAR Stinger 8, Interstate Batteries NASCAR Hornet and Northwest Pro 4 Truck Divisions. With fans under the covered grandstands this ‘Rain or Shine’ event will end the season for many of these drivers and with most of the championships still up for grabs this is a night for the race fan to not miss. Racing starts at 6pm, front gates will open at 4pm.

Ricky Dietz is the current leader for the 2013 Super Figure Eight Division title. Nick Gunderson is 25-points back with Mike Steltz just 26-points out. These three drivers know how important a championship is at Evergreen Speedway. None of the three have been able to get a championship in their respective careers. With finishing and passing points available in the heat races and the main event, the championship chase looks to go to the final laps of the season.

Unlike the SF8 Division the fledgling Classic/Stock Figure Eight Division has a big difference in points with Doug Delfel set to get the first ever championship for this group. Delfel won Super Figure Eight Championships in 1999 and 2002. The Classic/Stock Figure Eights will run in the same main event and heat races as the Super Figure Eights.

Stinger 8 Division point  leader Todd Stilwell has enough of a lead to gain his first ever division championship. Second in points is Jessica Gray who finished in the runner-up position last season is holding a slim 4-point edge over another female driver Nicole Pollard. Last year the four women in this division all finished in the top ten, a first for Evergreen Speedway. This season three of the women are locked in the top ten with Gray, Pollard and Joselyn LaFleur. Melissa Repin is in eleventh and with a strong night could move into the top ten.

The Hornet division title is definitely going to the last lap and potentially the last turn to decide who will be the champion. Cyril Greenawalt and Scott Hunt are just 6-points apart going into the seasons last point race. With 76 drivers getting points this season, the Hornet division is the most competitive. A large field of cars is expected on Saturday. Not just the top two positions are up in the air but a finish in the top ten as well with three drivers battling for the final two positions. Mark Hubbard currently ninth has a 6-point spread on Matt Clements who hold a slim lead of 4-points over Gary Rarden in eleventh. The Hornets will be on the road course for their season finale.

The traveling NW Pro 4 Truck Tour always brings a full complement of race trucks to Evergreen’s 3/8-mile oval. With their championship in the balance another strong turnout is expected.

Moore, Roberts, Drake NASCAR Champions

September 15, 2013 by  
Filed under Speedway News

On Saturday September 14 at Evergreen Speedway three divisional champions were crowned. Daniel Moore won the Speedway Chevrolet NASCAR Whelen All American Series Super Late Model and State of Washington NASCAR title. The 100-lap Les Schwab Tires presented by Emerald City Harley-Davidson in Lynnwood Super Late Model championship race on the BIG track the 5/8-mile was won by Naima Lang with Moore earning enough points to win the season title. The Les Schwab NASCAR Street Stock main was won by Dave Lund with Division Champion Roger Drake finishing second wrapping up his season with a first NASCAR crown. Jon Roberts won the Foster Press NASCAR Mini-Stock feature and cruised to his second consecutive division championship. In their next to last race of the season the winner of the Interstate batteries main was won by Mark Hubbard.

The 100-lap SLM race on the BIG track was all about Naima Lang as he led all but the first few laps. Taking the lead from Garrett Evans, Lang was only challenged one more time when a yellow came out on lap 86. On the restart Tyler Tanner started on the onside front row and gave all he had to beat Lang into turn one. Lang was able to hold back the move and went on to two in a row on the BIG track. Meanwhile champion Daniel Moore was not at his best this season but had enough points to spare to win his first ever NASCAR Championship allowing he and his new wife to go to the Whelen All American Series banquet in Charlotte, N.C. in November as the State of Washington NASCAR Champion. Second in points Tom Moriarity had to have everything go his way to have a shot at a seventh championship. That all ended early as he had to go to pit road to have major adjustments to his car putting him many laps down. Second place in the race went to Tanner who said he will be running full time at Evergreen in 2014. Third went Evans followed by Shane Sawin and Jason Kooy to round out the top five. Eighteen cars started the day with seventeen starting the feature.

Lund the part time racer showed how he won two track championships at Evergreen. Grabbing the lead early and never looking back Lund took the season finale 30-lap main win. Street Stock Champion Roger Drake finished second in the race and took his first ever NASCAR crown to go along with his three WWRA Sky Valley Stock titles. Third in the race Jason McQuinn will finish the season second in points. Fourth went to Kevin Compton. Stating that this was his last night of racing as he will spend time with his family, Travis Blackwood finished fifth.

It was never a question after mid-season who was going to win the Mini-Stock Division championship. Jon Roberts followed up last year’s title with this season’s. Roberts won the 30-lap feature to cap off another stellar season. Driving a Mazda rotary engine Roberts will have to go a different direction with that motor now being obsolete by way of Evergreen’s 2014 rules. Second in the race was Scott Burby with final podium spot going to Bobby DeYoung. Fourth and fifth were Devin Kessler and Mike Marthaller Jr. respectively.

The points battle for the Hornet championship heading into next Saturdays championship is just six points. The main was won by Mark Hubbard with second going to Cyril Greenawalt who is the point leader and third went to second in points Scott Hunt. On championship night the Hornets will be back on the familiar road course after this week’s run on the 3/8-mile. Fourth went to Cullen Hubbard followed by Gary Rarden.

Next up at Evergreen Speedway is Championship Night presented by Alfy’s Pizza on Saturday September 21 ‘rain or shine’. There will be five new champions crowned with the Emerald City Harley-Davidson in Lynnwood Super Figure Eights, Classic Figure Eights, Buzz Inn Steak House Stinger 8′s and NW Pro 4 Trucks all deciding their season champions. Racing gets started at 6pm with front gates opening at 4pm.

NASCAR Championships September 14

September 12, 2013 by  
Filed under Speedway News

On Saturday September 14 Les Schwab Tires presents NASCAR Championship and Emerald City Harley-Davidson in Lynnwood ride your Harley on the track night. The Speedway Chevrolet NASCAR Whelen All American Series Super Late Models will decide the track and State of Washington NASCAR champion on the BIG 5/8-mile oval in a 100-lap, $3000 to the winner feature. In addition the Les Schwab Tires NASCAR Street Stock and Foster Press NASCAR Mini-Stock Divisions will each race on the 3/8-mile oval to determine their respective season champions. Interstate Batteries NASCAR Hornet Division racers will be on the 3/8-mile oval in their next to last race of the season with a mere 3-points between the top two drivers. The racing begins at 6pm with a Harley ride on the BIG track to kick things off. Riders and their passengers get a two for one admission and single riders only $8. The first 250 riders will get a commemorative T-shirt.

Super Late Models on the BIG track always draw a large field of cars. The current point leader Daniel Moore, who is after his first ever SLM and NASCAR championship, is flying in from his honeymoon in Hawaii. Moore got married this past Friday. He would like to present his new bride with the track and State of Washington NASCAR championship. Moore, who has a 28-point margin, heading into the 100-lap season finale, cannot relax. Tom Moriarity, a six time speedway SLM champion, is second in the points and if all went his way could end up as the champion. There are 50-points to win and it drops by 2-points per position in the Super Late Model main. With many cars expected both Moore and Moriarity need to be on top of their game. So does Doni Wanat who is only 8-points behind Moriarity.

Seven of the drivers entered in the SLM season finale, have won one or more championships during their respective careers  - most notably Garrett Evans with championships that run the gamut from track to touring NASCAR Series championships .Kelly Mann (set a new track record and won the SLM main at South Sound Speedway last week) has won track titles, Shane Sawin has won the South Sound Speedway Late Model Championship, Moriarity has won a total of 9 championships at Evergreen (6-SLM and 3 Mini-Stock) and 1 Late Model championship at South Sound Speedway, Naima Lang has 4 Evergreen  Championships and is the defending SLM and State of Washington NASCAR champion. Then throw in the Street Stock championship that Frank Cowgill won last season and the Mini-Stock championship that Scott LaCross won a few years back making the SLM feature full of champions.

Others expected that could make their way to the winners circle: Molly Helmuth, Garrett Archer, Tyler Tanner, Jeff Knight (looks like he will make it as they are almost finished rebuilding his car from an earlier in the season wreck), John Boyatt, Tommy Rasmussen, John Lathrup Jr., Tim McDougald, Jason Kooy and Brandon Sheiber. Another that is trying to make the event is Brian Cottrell. There are always a few surprise teams that show up on race day.

Roger Drake leads the Street Stock Division points with a 30-point edge over Jason McQuinn. depending on the number of cars that show Drake needs another strong finish to wrap up his first NASCAR championship to go along with his many WWRA championships. McQuinn,  also after his first title, knows that he needs a bunch of cars to show,  and that Drake needs to falter while he wins the main and his respective heat race. The Street Stocks always have a very competitive group and will put on a great show for the fans.

The Mini-Stock defending champion Jon Roberts will make it two-in-a-row. With a sizeable 47-point lead going into the divisions final race Roberts just needs to show up. Knowing Roberts (nickname: Fozzy Bear) will do all he can to get his sixth win of the season to go with his eight from last season.

There is one division that is running this Saturday but not for their championship and that is the Hornets. With one more week before their championship night the top two drivers in the points battle are neck and neck. Leader Cyril Greenawalt has the slimmest of margins with a mere 3-point spread between himself and Scott Hunt. The Hornets who normally run on the road course will be on the 3/8-mile for only the third time since the inception of this division many years ago. This division always shows with well over 20-cars and many times has to have a Last Chance Main (B-Main).

For more information and or tickets go to www.evergreenspeedway.com or call 360-805-6100. Racing starts at 6pm with spectator gates opening at 4pm and Back Gate opening at 12pm. SLM qualifying is scheduled for 4pm.

On Saturday September 7th Evergreen Speedway will host the annual Economy Fence 1st Responders Night at the Races. Besides a tribute to our 1st Responders the night will feature three visiting series and three local divisions. The Les Schwab Tires NASCAR Street Stocks, Interstate Batteries NASCAR Hornets and V-8 Extremes are the local divisions with heated points chases in the Street Stock and Hornet Divisions.

Street Stock point leader Roger Drake will try to add to his 28-point lead for the 2013 division championship. Jason McQuinn will be trying to close that margin heading into next week’s championship race. Drake was able to win last week’s feature and McQuinn had trouble getting to the front. This will be an important week for both of the top two who are both looking for their first NASCAR Street Stock title.

Cyril Greenawalt leads the Hornet division by 11-points over Scott Hunt. Hunt won last week’s main and closed in on the title. Greenawalt is after his first speedway title as is Hunt. Including Saturday’s race the Hornet division has three remaining to decide who will be the 2013 champion. They will be on the 3/8-mile next week September 14 and on the road course for their championship on September 21.

The WESCO Sprints (Washington Econo Sprint Car Organization) will be making their first trip to Evergreen Speedway this season. On the 3/8-mile these winged sprint cars are very fast. Drivers expected are point leader Cody Stewart, Tim Halliday, Danny Mathews , Doug McClees and Todd Coleman.

The last time the Columbia River Legends were here at Evergreen Speedway the last lap and last turn decided the winner of their feature race. Young Parker Stephens won by a few feet with the pass on Duane Swanson. They brought 20-cars with them on June 8 and that many or more are expected for their last visit this season to the ‘Northwest Center of Racing’, Evergreen Speedway.

This will be the NW Vintage Modifieds last race of the season. Paul Field and Grant Clother have a good battle for the championship. Others expected will Robert Rux, John Mustered and Kyten Jones plus many others.

V-8 Extremes are a division of bump-to-pass drivers and always keep the fans well entertained with their crazy style of driving. Not knowing what the main event will be from Flag Pole to Figure 8 these drivers are prepared for anything.
