Gilbert used the inside line with three laps to go to pass Dylan Lupton to take the final transfer spot. Lupton will have to race his way in during Saturday’s LCQ race or use a provisional. The heat race was won by Bubba Pollard.

Roger Drake held off Darrell Lutovsky on a restart with 2-laps to go to take the victory in the 30-lap NASCAR Les Schwab Street Stocks main event.

Lutovsky finished second after setting a new track record and a battle for position with Chad Fitzpatrick. Fitzpatrick dropped to fourth in the final two laps allowing Card Davidson to take third.

50 Years For FSCRA and A Win for Delfel in the Stock Figure 8’s

June 22, 2015 by  
Filed under Speedway News

When you have sunny skies, a group of racers that chose Evergreen Speedway to hold their 50th anniversary celebration, 5 divisions of racers and a hot crowd in the grandstands, it makes it easy to appreciate what  a special place we get to call out home track!

The FSCRA celebrated 50 years of racing both under the grandstands and out on the track this past Saturday. It was amazing to see the memorabilia that former FSCRA members brought for fans to check out. From programs created in the 60’s, hundreds of pictures from all the greats that ran with this club over the years to an assortment of cars from back in the day, jackets, banners, to several DVD’s and tapes showing how exciting the racing was back then. Tony Deegan and all the people who made the Foreign Stock Car Racing Association so special hit it out of the park with what they provided fans to appreciate truly deserve a huge Thank You for what they did Saturday.

The West Coast Vintage Modifieds started the main event action. Kyten Jones started off the race leading the first nine laps until Bobby Wheeler Jr. used a move on the outside to pass Jones and managed to hold the lead until the checkered flag waved. Robert Rux brought his car to the line to finish 2nd with Kyten Jones finshing 3rd.

The FSCRA Super 4’s were up next for their 25 lap main. Federal Way’s Kayla Pittman led the first 6 laps until John Grosvenor took over the lead and never looked back on his way to the win. Tom Pinkowski was listed as the driver of the 2nd place finisher, and I have to apologize for not noting whom was behind the wheel, but I do know that Max Shroeder finished 3rd!

The Interstate Battery Hornets took to the road course for their 25 lap main event, Steve Garka lead the first 4 laps of the race. Cody Hoopes took his 10X car past Garka and led until a caution came out on lap 17. Point’s leader Mike Ridley came into contact with another car causing the entire right side door skin to come off the 66. Mike did an impressive job working through traffic to assume the lead for good on lap 21. Ridley finished 1st, last week’s winner Scott Hunt took 2nd and Cody Hoopes hung on for 3rd.

The Buzz Inn Steakhouse Stinger 8’s were up next for a 30 lap race. Coming into the race, 2nd generation driver Brandon Lindberg was 4th in division points, behind Matt Sommerville (1st), Lance Ograin  (2nd) and Cody Hoopes (3rd). Lindberg did a wire-to-wire job on the field for his first win in 2015. Sommerville finished 2nd and Lance Ograin took 3rd. The race was an emotional one for Ograin, as he and his family lost Lance’s Grandfather Dick Ograin a few days earlier. The rooting section in the grandstands consisting of the Ograin family and friends were loud and proud as Lance paid a fitting tribute on the victory platform.

The Monroe Grocery Outlet Super Stock Figure 8’s finished up the night, with several new cars with familiar names behind the wheel. It was good to see Rich Groshong back running on the F8 course once again. Point’s leader Quenton Borreson set fast time earlier in the day, causing him to have to start at the back of the field. Bill Fleischacker led some of the early portion of the race along with Eric Allision until Doug Delfel took the lead on lap 10. Allison got the lead back 2 laps later only to get passed by Borreson who had drove his way through the field. Delfel re-assumes the lead one lap later and holds it until a wreck involving Devin Jenkins and Quenton Borreson on lap 15. Jenkins hit Borreson in the left rear quarter of the 17 car, but Quenton managed to get his car restarted and soldiered on. Doug Delfel eventually won this wild race, with Borreson managing to finish 2nd and Tony Hill finished 3rd. The top 3 came up to the Angel of the Winds Winners Circle, but Borreson was feeling the after effects of his incident with Jenkins. Quenton told me that he can’t recall ever getting hit as hard as this time, and he’ll be dealing with some sore ribs for a while, but a nice break in the schedule will have the “One Armed Bandit” healed up and ready to go when the division races again on July 11th.

Coming up this weekend is an event being billed as “The Biggest Race of the Year” and rightfully so! The 4th Annual Evergreen Speedway Summer Showdown starts off with Budweiser Speedweeks, including the Summer Showdown Karting Challenge being held at TRAXX Indoor Raceway in Mukilteo on Wednesday June 24th from 6:30 to 9:00 PM. There will be a pizza party and no host bar. You can register by contacting Shonda at 360-805-6100 or by email at shonda@evergreenspeedway.com.

Thursday the 25th will be practice on the 5/8’s for Showdown teams only. Practice is free to those in the grandstands and will run from 4:00 to 8:30 PM. Northsound Racing will be broadcasting their show live from practice from 5:00 to 6:15 PM. If you can’t make it to practice, you can listen to Northsound Racing on FOXSPORTS 1380-KRKO Radio. There will be a BBQ after practice for the teams practicing that night.

Friday June 26th will start at 4:30 with qualifying for the Summer Showdown Super Late Models along with qualifying for the Les Schwab Street Stocks and Foster Press Mini Stocks. Opening ceremonies start at 7:00 PM, then we will start the 25 lap Super Late Model qualifying races, along with 30 lap main events for the Street Stocks and Mini Stocks.

Saturday will start with qualifying for the Northwest Pro 4 Alliance cars at 2:30. After that, there will be a Showdown drivers and spotters meeting at the flag stand. The Showdown Last Chance Qualifier race will go off at 4:00 PM for 50 laps. The 40 lap Main Event for the Northwest Pro 4 Alliance cars starts at 5:30. Opening ceremonies for the Summer Showdown will begin at 6:30 and the feature event, the 200 lap Summer Showdown will begin after that.

We are honored to have as our Grand Marshall for this epic event, Delisa “Mama” Lynch, known to Seattle Seahawk fans as the mother of Hawks running back Marshawn Lynch. “I’m so excited to be coming back to Evergeen Speedway this weekend” Mama Lynch said on Northsound Racing last Thursday. “I know that the fans are so excited to have an event like this occur in their backyard and I’m honored to be a part of it”

Evergreen Speedway Points Race Info for Summer Showdown

Summer Showdown will be be a flat 25 Points for Friday Night Heat races for Evergreen Super Late Model track points. National NASCAR points will be awarded for the Showdown race on Saturday.

June 13th Recap with MyLaps Link

June 16, 2015 by  
Filed under Speedway News

It was Driver Reunion night presented by Seattle Suntan at Evergreen Speedway last Saturday night along with an Evergreen Speedway Hall of Fame celebration attended by many surviving members of this prestigious group. There was also a Memorial presentation honoring the members of the 5 Hall of Famers that have passed on in the past year, including remembrances of Mick Tomlin, Don Perry, Gordy Stewart, Ron Daggett and Donnie Scriver.

Five classes took to the track on a bright, sunny Saturday afternoon. Qualifying started off the day, with Aaron Green setting fast time in the Northwest Pro 4 Trucks, Quenton Borreson in the Monroe Grocery Outlet Super Stock Figure 8’s, Mike Holden in the Speedway Chevrolet Super Late Model Series, and Trenton Moriarty qualified first in the 27 car field for the Outlaw Compact Super Series. Moriarty set the fast time on his first of two qualifying laps, and as he was coming out of turn two on his second lap, suspension issues halted his progress and was towed back to his pit stall. The Les Schwab Street Stock division set their heat race and main event line-ups based on points.

In the first main event of the night, the Northwest Pro 4 Trucks took to the 3/8’s oval, with eleven trucks making up the field. Rick Shaver took the early lead, and managed to keep it for the first 2/3rds of the race. Doug Wilkenson experienced issues on restarts, and it seemed like his truck couldn’t get out of its own shadow until it finally came to life all the while losing positions. When his truck finally got wound back up, he was flying. An incident later in the race brought out a caution, and leader Rick Shaver left the track. On the restart, Wilkenson had the same results, but his truck roared to life and on the white flag lap, he made a thrilling move out of turn 4 to get his first win of 2015 over Pete Brady and Aaron Green.

The Monroe Grocery Outlet Super Stock Figure 8’s were up next for their 25 lap main event. 10 cars took to the track in a relatively “tame” race. As expected, the “One Armed Bandit” continued on his way to his second consecutive championship in this division with a start at the back of the field and precision driving to the front for the win. Doug Delfel in a new car that he described on the Angel of the Winds victory stage as “Not so much fun to drive….yet” finished 2nd and Devin Jenkins took 3rd.

In the Les Schwab Street Stock’s, 18 cars showed up to battle it out on the 3/8’s. Current point’s leader Chad Fitzpatrick had a busy week, what with graduation from high school and all. After the thrilling victory he pulled off last Saturday, the 12 team were looking to make it 3 wins in a row, but while Chad was feeling fine, the car wasn’t. Chad got mired in traffic in the 30 lap main, and just couldn’t get the wick turned up resulting in a 6th place finish. Duane Schoesbeck returned to Evergreen Speedway to pick up the win going away, with Carl Davidson putting in his best effort of the season placing 2nd with Roger Drake following in 3rd.

The feature race of the night was the 50 lap “Mini Mania” race for the Outlaw Compact Series. It was awesome to see racers from the Wenatchee Valley Super Oval, Yakima Speedway and most of the regulars of the Foster Press Mini Stock division run this race. To add to the diversity of compact cars, several Northwest Pro 4 Trucks entered the race, including earlier main event winner Doug Wilkenson. As mentioned above, Trenton Moriarty, current points leader at Evergreen and undefeated in main events this season set fast time for this race. Evergreen regular Scott Burby burst to the lead and held it through several caution flags. Long time racer in the Outlaw Compacts Nat Barber, racing at his home track found himself hitting the inside wall coming into turn 3 halting the race while making sure that Barber was okay. The crowd gave Nat a nice round of applause upon hearing that Nat was unharmed. His race car however is a way different story. Another one of those flags involved the NWP4T of Wilkenson, hitting the front stretch wall hard, retiring him from the race. Trenton Moriarty shucked and jived his way through traffic to take the lead and win going away. Scott Burby held off a furious charge by NWP4T driver Jason Majors to finish 2nd and Majors took home the 3rd place trophy.     

The Speedway Chevrolet Super Late Models made their final appearance at Evergreen Speedway until the 4th Annual Summer Showdown with a 75 lap main on the 3/8’s oval. 15 cars timed in earlier in the day. Rookie of the Year contender Luke Selliken, driving for Mike Barrett Motorports comes up from Portland Oregon to race with the best in the Northwest, started up front and was never seriously threatened on his way to his first victory in a Super Late Model. Luke had his restarts down to a science, holding off last year’s champion Mike Holden for 3-4 times. “I can’t believe what just happened” Selliken said from the Angel of the Winds Casino Hotel victory stage, “I was getting kind of tired towards the end, but it’s an amazing feeling to get a win on this class. Can’t wait for the Showdown!” Holden finished 2nd and Shane Sawin made his first podium finish this season with his 3rd place finish.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In a night filled with a lot of memories, both from the past and present, a highlight was the individual selected to give the command to start the engines for the Super Late Model main event. Mickey Beadle was the promoter/operator of Evergreen Speedway for 25+ years, and after being introduced commented on the outstanding effort put in by the staff of High Roads Promotions in resurrecting Evergreen Speedway to its former glory. Mickey and the Beadle family for years poured their heart and soul into one of the most unique race tracks in the country, and many in the grandstand and the returning racers from the past were happy to see the Beadles back at the track they had so much passion for. 

Up next Saturday will be Walmart Community Night at the Races. Kids 10 and under get in free, and adults are only $10.00. We’ll have Figure 8 racing, the West Coast Vintage Modifieds return, the Interstate Battery Hornets and Buzz Inn Steakhouse Stinger 8’s will see action.

Fitzpatrick Edges Drake and Hoopes takes Nats

June 12, 2015 by  
Filed under Speedway News

2015 SS Finish 2A

Cody Hoopes of Redmond, WA. capitalized on a front row starting spot and lead the Buzz Inn Steakhouse Stinger Nationals to a wire to wire victory in the 50 lap main event. Meanwhile, Chad Fitzpatrick out muscled champ Roger Drake to earn the top spot by a fender for the Les Schwab Street stocks in what was surely the best race of the year so far.

Hoopes qualified number two, earning the front row starting spot in the Nationals and never looked back as he led every lap. It wasn’t easy though as Bryce Kolar making his first Stinger 8 start of the year gave virtually all of the leaders fits as he refused to yield his Honda at the intersection for any and all conditions, breaking up the pack of racers dicing for position on a regular basis. Kolar brought the crowd to their feet time after time with his heroics, sending the leaders scrambling for a clean pass through the cross roads. The top ten settled in to position by lap thirty and spent the remainder of the race threading the needle. Nicole Pollard trailed Hooped the entire distance, closing to within striking distance in the closing laps, but had to yield one last time inside of 5 to go and the race was settled. Jessica Gray, Matt Somerville and Lance O’Grain rounded out the top five.

Roger Drake sailed into the lead of the Street Stock main from his second row starting spot to lead the first lap, the beneficiary of an attempted jump by front row starter Chuck Richard. When Richard attempted to get the jump, pole sitter Kenny Erickson didn’t bite, and Rickard ended up costing himself five positions by the end of the first lap. Fitzpatrick settled into second by lap 12. A lap 25 caution bunched the field together, giving Fitzpatrick a shot. As Drake brought the field down for the restart, Roger went first, but hazed his tires and Fitzptrick capitalized, leading the field into turn 1. Out of four for the White flag, Fitz slid up a groove allowing Drake a look inside. Drake lead down the back stretch, and Fitzpatrick inched ahead going to three. Virtually even through the final turn, Fitzpatrick had enough momentum on the outside to nose ahead of Drake by half a fender for the finish and claim the win. Darrell Lutovsky claimed the final podium spot in his first run of the year at Evergreen.

Chris Curtis took home the 30 lap Outlaw Figure 8 main, while Scott Hunt claimed the Hornet main event on the 3/8 oval and Trenton Moriarity led every lap of the Mini Stock main event to remain undefeated in his campaign to defend his championship rookie season.

Saturday night is Driver Reunion night at the speedway so there will be lots of special activities along with the Super Late Model 75 and Outlaw Compact open competition event with well over 40 entries expected. Summer Showdown is on the docket for the end of June as the summer heats up at the historic facility. You can get tickets for all these events by visiting www.EvergreenSpeedway.com.
