2015 Schedule Updated

February 5, 2015 by  
Filed under Speedway News

We have tried very hard this year to accommodate other tracks in the area as well as certain traveling groups. We also tried to add some new exciting events…some worked out like the King of the Wing, and others fell through at the last second. With that we did make some minor changes to the schedule and have just re-posted. Most notable changes are the removal of the April 25th Mini Stock race and the June 20th Street Stock race.

King of the Wing Sprint Cars

King of the Wing Sprint Cars at Evergreen Speedway 2015

Jamestown, IN – After a very successful inaugural season, Officials with the King of the

Wing are please to announce that the Series will expand to the Northwest region in 2015. The

Northwest has a well-established base of Sprint cars and fans with the Northwest Sprint car Racing

Association in Washington, Oregon, Idaho and British Columbia Canada.

 

The first Northwest race will be Thursday, July 30th at the legendary ¼ mile oval in Meridian, Idaho.

Meridian Speedway Managing Partner, Adam Nelson, commented on the Thursday night race, “We

worked hard with Davey {Hamilton} to make this race a reality at Meridian Speedway, our fans are avid

supporters of Winged Sprint car racing and we are confident that they will support a Thursday night

show.” Meridian Speedway roots run deep in open wheel racing dating back to its first season in 1951. “I

could not be happier to bring this series to Meridian Speedway, this track not only has a rich history with

winged sprint cars, it is my hometown track and very special to my family”, stated KOTW promoter

Davey Hamilton.

 

In a first for the series, Evergreen Speedway in Monroe, Washington, will host two races, on two

different tracks. Saturday August 1st drivers will compete on the 3/8 mile track, and Sunday August 2nd

will move up to the larger 5/8 mile track. Hamilton said, “Evergreen’s two different tracks at the same

facility will give our drivers and teams a unique racing experience.”

 

Saturday night’s event will feature the prestigious Rory Price Memorial Race. Rory Price made a huge

impact on so many lives in his native western Washington home, as well as the entire length of the west

coast. Rory started out in go-karts moving to mini-sprints, midgets, and sprint cars. He started racing

professionally at age sixteen and could be found in most any type of open wheeled car on dirt or

asphalt. Rory died of injuries in a testing accident on March 31, 2006.

 

“We are ecstatic that the King of the Wing Sprint Car Shootout Series will be running the Rory Price Memorial”, stated Doug Hobbs, President of Evergreen Speedway. He added, “The two day King of the Wing event will feature one of the largest purses for sprint cars on the west coast.”

 

The “King of the Wing” series is designed to work with all teams, promoters, fans and sponsors, to

strengthen pavement winged sprint car racing from coast to coast, working directly with all existing

pavement sprint car series. Long term plans for the series are to provide a competitive rules package

that can apply to all sprint cars and create race events that truly allows the promoters and racers to

build bigger venues, show the sponsors and fans the world’s fastest short track cars, and to promote

some of the best short track drivers competing head-to-head no matter what part of the country they

are from or what series they run on a regular basis. This is the only pavement sprint car series that

features competitors from all across the United States and Canada.

TRI TRACK Logo 2The Pacific Northwest witnessed the beginning of a new Super Late Model racing endeavor as the Tri Track Super Late Model Series kicked off its inaugural season in 2014. In the first year the series saw over 80 drivers take the green flag with 10 different winners over the course of an 11-race schedule. The series returns in 2015 with some new additions including two new tracks, a new series director and some of the region’s biggest names committing to the sophomore season.

The eight-race series will take place at four of the premier tracks in the Northwest including two of its anchor facilities, Wenatchee Valley Super Oval and Yakima Speedway joined in 2015 by Monroe’s Evergreen Speedway and Stateline Speedway in Post Falls, ID.

“We really wanted to expand on the great success we had last year and planned to add new tracks if possible,” said Garrett Evans, series promoter and Wenatchee Valley Super Oval owner. “Both Evergreen and Stateline are premier facilities from top to bottom and will add some variety for both drivers and fans during our 2015 season.”

This will be the 50th Year for the Pollock Family operating Yakima Speedway and will have two of their most historic race weekends, Apple Cup and the Fall Classic as the part of the series. The Apple Blossom 200 at Wenatchee Valley Super Oval and Idaho 200 at Stateline Speedway will also be big events on this season’s schedule.

The Mark Galloway 150 at Evergreen Speedway will be one of the races to watch, as it will be contested on the .675-mile track and is one of only three races on the bigger surface at the Monroe facility during their 2015 season.

Late model drivers are already showing interest in the 2015 Tri Track Series season including champions from across the region. Leading the charge is four-time late model touring champion, Gary Lewis, who will be out to match defending Tri Track champion, Garrett Evans, as a five-time late model touring title winner.

Also planning a run for the Tri Track championship will multi-time Yakima Speedway champion, Owen Riddle and past Inland Northwest Super Stock Series champions, Braeden Havens and David Garber. All 3 drivers made starts with the series in 2014 but look to make championship runs in 2015. The reigning Tri Track Series Champion and 4-time NASCAR Northwest Tour Champion, Garrett Evans, will return to defend his title. The list is growing with other drivers looking to lock up a spot in the 2015 season including Mitch Kleyn, Lucas Valdez, Zach Moran and Tim Babcock.

Doug Pace will take the reigns as the Series Director in 2015 and couldn’t be happier about joining the series staff.

“Last year the Tri Track Super Late Model Series really showed the Northwest some great things and we’re looking to build on that to make 2015 even better,” he said.

Pace will bring plenty of experience to the table including media leadership with the NASCAR Northwest Tour and ARCA West Late Model Challenge Series, administrative roles with regional race tracks including Yakima Speedway and Montana Raceway Park and management experience in several of the country’s leading financial institutions.

“We are really excited to have somebody like Doug step up and want to join the series,” Evans said. “We have a great group of guys that have a lot of experience and passion for the series, adding Doug will just make it even stronger”.

Staff set to return to the series under Pace’s leadership include Media Director Jeremy Anders, Technical Director Marv Boehling and Technical Inspectors Jim Wilson and Craig Anderson. Also joining the series will be former NASCAR Sprint Cup team member and past NASCAR Northwest Tour Car owner, Jarrod Goodwin, who will work in a technical role.

“I believe with the staff that we have in the series we are building for our present and future success. Our goal is to become a top series in the Pacific Northwest to be among the best on West Coast.” Pace added.  “We want to provide drivers, fans and sponsors a first class series that they look forward to being a part of each race weekend.”

Increased payouts will be an attraction that should help with overall car count each race. With a minimum of $5,000 to win up for grabs in seven of eight races next season and a tire contingency program through a partnership with Hoosier Racing Tires, the Tri Track Super Late Model Series will be an exciting program, Pace added.

“We have Hoosier stepping up to provide a contingency program for our drivers and we are working with partners to add to that package for drivers that are part of our points structure throughout the season.”

“We thought this was a great way to tie the two races together, and create some extra incentive for teams to travel to both of these big events,” stated Hobbs.  “We’re excited about working with Larry and his staff, and look forward to the association between the Winter and Summer Showdowns.”

In 2014, Summer Showdown winner Cameron Haley drove off with $21,000.00 in prize money after claiming the Don Scriver Pole Award and winning the annual 200-lap race at Evergreen Speedway.

For 2015, both the Winter Showdown at Kern County Raceway Park and Summer Showdown at Evergreen Speedway will pay $25,000.00 to each of its winners, with over $125,000.00 being paid out in prize money at each event.

“Doug and everyone at Evergreen Speedway have done a great job with the Summer Showdown.  We see events like these as a way to inject excitement into our sport, so together we’re building two big events for teams and race fans to look forward to year after year.” added Collins. “It’s a hellava incentive for someone to have the shot at pocketing $60,000.00 by winning both races, and scoring the bonus. Race teams from coast to coast have already been calling for more information.”

Concord, North Carolina standout driver Preston Peltier has already made plans for the Winter Showdown. “We’re looking forward to coming out for the Winter Showdown in February, and if we do well, we’ll be back for the Summer Showdown at Evergreen,” stated Peltier, a three-time winner in the PASS South Series in 2014.  Peltier, works at Hendrick Motorsports during the week and spends his vacation days competing in PASS events and other marquee Late Model races, such as the Snow Ball Derby and the World Crown 300 which he won in 2013.  “We’ve been wanting to come out and do some of the big west coast shows and these two races are going to be events that a lot of drivers will want to come out to be part of next year.”

The combined payout for the Winter Showdown and Summer Showdown will exceed $250,000.00, including the $10,000.00 bonus paid to the top team overall fore two events.
