Summer Showdown A Rousing Success for Many

June 30, 2014 by  
Filed under Speedway News

The three day $100,000.00 Third Annual Summer Showdown presented by Coors Light at Evergreen Speedway did all it was intended to do and more. It was designed to bring together many of North America’s Super Late Model drivers young, old, male and female. Fifty-four drivers were on hand to be challenged by Evergreen’s BIG track, the 5/8-mile paved oval. The drivers represented 8 US States and two Provinces of Canada. In turn the fans showed their support by turning out in droves. The weather Gods supported the event with only a few showers during the three days. It gave Evergreen Speedway, the largest NASCAR weekly short track west of the Mississippi, a chance to show the country that it is the ‘Super Speedway of the West’. Canada’s Cameron Hayley came and he conquered by winning the $20,000.00 winner’s check plus was the Don Scriver Memorial Fast Time recipient of $1,000.00 by setting fast time and a new track record of :22.002, over 114mph. In addition on Thursday June 26 while everyone else was practicing their racing skills in Monroe, WA, Hayley was home in Calgary, Alberta, Canada graduating from Bishop Carroll High School.

Hayley led the entire 200-laps of the Saturday night Summer Showdown. The young 17 year old also led all of his 25-lap Qualifying Heat Race on Friday night. A total of $21,000.00 was quite the graduation gift he gave himself. In 2013 Cameron was one of ten drivers to be included in NASCAR’s Next. The NASCAR Next is an initiative to help spotlight NASCAR’s rising stars – and bolster fan recognition around talent that will grow into NASCAR Sprint Cup Series mainstays.

The challenges for Hayley during the 200 laps were many. On each of the six restarts due to yellow flags he had to start side by side with his closest pursuer for the lead. Withstanding each of those challenges, the other was tire wear. At the halfway break to take on new tires Hayley said during a brief interview “I thought I had a right front flat then a left rear flat, I even thought they were all flat when I came in”. With the new tires in the second half Hayley stayed out front. With a late caution coming out on lap 196 there was to be one more double file re-start. This one had the 2012 Summer Showdown winner fellow Canadian Pete Harding (Surrey, BC) on the inside of the front row, as Hayley had chosen the outside. In row two was veteran Garrett Evans (E. Wenatchee, WA). The rules called for five green flag laps to end the race. On the re-start at lap 200 Hayley made a strong run into turn one and held back Harding. Harding lost second to Evans. Evans made a strong effort to catch Hayley in the last four laps but finished second by :0.634 seconds. Harding was third. Youth vs age and youth won this time. Harding and Evans both have strong racing credentials that they have garnered throughout their respective racing careers.

Side Bar: Hayley will be back at Evergreen on August 16 with his Cabinets by Hayley K&N Pro Series West car for the NAPA Auto Parts K&N Pro Series West 150. Wanting to take his Super Late Model to the Snowball Derby at Five Flags Speedway in Pensacola, Florida the first weekend of December, Hayley said, “The $20,000.00 will sure help in getting us there”.

In Saturday’s 50-lap Last Chance Shootout presented by Epic Firearms, 8 cars qualified to move up to the 36-car Summer Showdown 200. That race was won by Daniel Moore (Spokane, WA). Ron Eaton (Tacoma, WA) finished second with Zack Beaman (Yakima, WA) third. John Zaretzke (Snohomish, WA), Jason Gilbert (Pleasanton, CA), Korbin Thomas (White Rock, BC), Doni Wanat (Woodinville, WA) and Peter Link (North Bend, WA) all moved up to the Showdown. Of this group young Zack Beaman, who started 31st, finished the highest in the Showdown at fifth.

The youngest driver to start the Summer Showdown 200 was 16-year old Nicole Behar (Otis Orchards, WA). One of the record four women to enter the event. It was Behar’s first time at Evergreen and was the only woman to make the 200 and did so via her strong 15th quick qualifying effort.  Behar finished a very respectable 12th on the lead lap. Nicole will return to Evergreen’s 5/8-mile on August 16 with her new NASCAR K&N Pro Series West car for the NAPA Auto Parts 150.

Friday’s racing included the Les Schwab Tires NASCAR Street Stock and Foster Press NASCAR Mini-Stock Divisions in 30 lap mains on the BIG track. The Street Stock main was won by Jason McQuinn with Chad Fitzpatrick second and Joe Kneeland third. The Mini-Stock winner was Josh Ingram followed by Trenton Moriarity and Andrew Schukar. The four qualifying heat races for the Summer Showdown were also on Friday, with the top six from each race moving into the Saturday’s Summer Showdown 200. The other four were added from the fastest from earlier qualifying that did not get in via their heat race. Hayley won race #1. Race #2 was won by Jim Pettit (Prunedale, CA), Race #3 Jason Fraser (Snohomish, WA) and Race #4 Owen Riddle (Naches, WA).

On Saturday the traveling Pro 4 Alliance Series ran a 40-lap main on the BIG Track. The winner was Eddie Secord (Oak hills, CA). Second went to Bud Rumsey (Prosser, WA) and third was Tobey Becker (Highland, CA).

Next Up: The July 4th USA Birthday Bash featuring Mr. Dizzy Stunts, Boat Races, Outlaw Figure 8, Buzz Inn Steakhouse Stinger 8, Interstate Batteries Hornets, Renegade 8’s, Big Car Demo Derby and Fireworks. Start time is 6pm with grandstand gates opening at 3pm.

Early in the year track operators Doug & Traci Hobbs asked what would it take to make the Summer Showdown bigger and better? The answer was increase the purse to a record amount. They did with the response above expectations by both drivers and the fans. The Hobbs always forward thinking are already planning the 2015 Summer Showdown. In their short tenure, they have quickly raised Evergreen Speedway to the third ranked NASCAR Weekly Track in North America and the biggest weekly track west of the Mississippi. The Hobbs were recently chosen as Racing Promoters of the Year in District 6 by their peers in the Racing Promoters Association.

Summer Showdown Grand Marshall is NASCAR Legend Hershel McGriff who will be available for autographs throughout the two extravaganza. During NASCAR’s 50th anniversary celebration in 1998, McGriff was elected one of NASCAR’s 50 greatest drivers. A plaque with many of McGriff’s career stats is in the NASCAR Hall of Fame in Charlotte, NC. McGriff has been inducted into Motorsports Hall of Fame, Oregon Sports Hall of Fame, West Coast Stock Car Hall of Fame, Most Popular Driver 12 years running.. McGriff began racing stock cars in 1945 after racing resumed in the U.S. following World War II. At the age of 17, he raced at the Portland Speedway where he finished 12th or 13th in a 250-lapper on a muddy, 5/8-mile track in his minister father’s 1940 Hudson while his father prayed under the bleachers. At age 84, he is NASCAR’s oldest active competitor and NASCAR K&N Pro Series West’s oldest and winningest active competitor, with 31 victories. McGriff won the inaugural Mexican Carrera Pan Americana road race in 1950, outrunning 131 other cars including NASCAR founder Bill France, Curtis Turner and other NASCAR drivers.

The anthem on Saturday will be performed by the 40-member University of Washing Alumni Band and there will be a special fly over.
