On Saturday June 21 at Evergreen Speedway Frontier Communications will be sponsoring Family Night at the Races. Tickets are $10 with 10 and under FREE. The nights racing features the Interstate Batteries Hornet Nationals, Les Schwab Tires NASCAR Street Stocks, Foster Press NASCAR Mini-Stocks, Super Stock Figure 8’s and Pro 4 Trucks. Racing begins at 6pm with spectator gates opening at 4pm.
The Hornet Nationals will be a $500 to win race open to all hornets including door bar cars. Contenders for the big prize are many, but a few of those that could take home the winner’s check are current Hornet Division point leader Scott Hunt or Mark Hubbard, a three time winner this season, or Cody Hoopes, second in the standings and a frequent visitor to the podium or Zach Bristol, third in the standings and a winner this season. There will be a large contingent for this division’s big night at the race track.
Roger Drake, who leads the points chase for the Street Stock Division Championship, is coming off a rare DNF the last time out. His lead of over 30 points shrank to just 11 with Darrell Lutovsky closing in. Tucked in behind Lutovsky is Steve Ptacek just 5 points back and rookie Kevin Compton is within striking distance just 12 back of Ptacek. Last season’s Rookie of the Year, 17-year old Chad Fitzpatrick, is fifth in the standings with one win to his credit. This division will be on the 3/8-mile this Saturday and on Friday June 27 as part of the $100,000.00 Summer Showdown they move out to the BIG track the 5/8-mile oval.
It has been a tremendous battle amongst three drivers for the Mini-Stock Division Championship. Leader at this time Bobby DeYoung has been on and off the top of the list as has third in point’s rookie Trenton Moriarity. Throw in second in points Andrew Schukar and you have a classic battle on who will be the 2014 champion. With half the season remaining there could be others that climb to the top to join these three. As with the Street Stocks this Division is on the 3/8 this week and on the BIG track on Friday June 27.
The new division the Super Stock Figure 8’s has ‘The One Armed Bandit’ Quenton Borreson on top in the chase. Doug Delfel is second followed by Devin Jenkins. This fledgling division always brings excitement as they challenge “The Planets Most Dangerous Intersection” the dreaded X of the figure eight track.
Pro 4 Truck Series is a traveling group and they are making their third stop at Evergreen this season. With six races at Evergreen on their schedule more than any other track they visit, this is considered their home track in 2014. The points for the 2014 championship are led by Matt Greene with Mike Tipps just behind. Only 1-point behind Tipps is Hayley Wilkinson and Aaron Greene is in fourth. This 3/8-mile division provides great side-by-side truck racing.

On Saturday June 14 at Evergreen Speedway Ricky Deitz won his fourth KISW 60-Minutes of FEAR. The night also had a first ever in the 60 year history of the fabled track there was an all-women podium finish in the Buzz Inn Steakhouse Stinger 8 Division main. Jessica Gray was the winner with Nicole Pollard second and Joselyn LaFleur third. In other events Scott Hunt won the Interstate Batteries Hornet main and Scott Rinkle won the NW Vintage Modified main. It was another large crowd on hand to watch the 21st Annual 99.9 KISW 60-Minutes of FEAR (Figure Eight Auto Racing).
Ricky ‘The Kid’ Deitz won the inaugural 60-Minutes of FEAR in 1995 then again in 2007 once again in 2010 and now in 2014. Deitz got the lead around the 15-minute mark and never looked back as he won easily. Easily on a figure eight track is not doable especially when the weather changed in the last 15-minutes as it started to rain and the track got very slick. It was not weather, traffic at the X or other racers that were going to deny Deitz a record event tying fourth win of a major West Coast figure eight race. Second place and on the lead lap was two time event winner John ‘Cowboy’ Carlson. Mike Middleton was third a few laps back followed by Doug Wilkinson and Quenton ‘The One Armed Bandit’ Borreson. Next BIG event for the Figure Eights is the 31st Annual Seattle Sun Tan Figure Eight Nationals presented by Northsound 1380 on August 9.
Never before in a non all women’s race have three women finished on the podium. On Saturday that all changed. Even though they had come close with two on the dais never three. In the Stinger 8 main the three women worked their way through race traffic and the traffic at the X of the figure eight and finally took over the top three spots and finished one, two, three. Jessica Gray was the first to the checkers followed closely by Nicole Pollard and not far behind was Joselyn LaFleur. All three are friends and they were elated to finally have broken the barrier. Fourth went to Lance O’Grain and fifth to Jason Wilson.
Hornet point leader Scott Hunt showed prowess on the 3/8-mile by winning the 25-lap feature by over 2 seconds. Mark Hubbard finished second and just could not catch Hunt. Hunt credited Hubbard with teaching him and helping set the car up. In third it was Cody Hoopes, fourth went to Nicole Pollard and fifth to Mike Ridley. Next up for this large division is the Interstate Batteries Hornet Nationals next Saturday June 21.
Scott Rinkle was the winner of the NW Vintage Modified feature. Rinkle set fast time and wasted no time getting to the lead and pulled way to the victory. This was the second of three stops at Evergreen for this traveling series. Bobby Wheeler Jr. was second just ahead of Kyten Jones. Next two spots respectively were John Mustered and Tom Smitham.
