Frontier Communications Family Night May 31
On Saturday May 31 Frontier Communications is sponsoring Family Night at Evergreen Speedway with special pricing of $10 and kids 10 and under Free. This special lets the fan enjoy a night of racing at yesteryear prices in honor of Evergreen’s 60th Anniversary season. The race goer will see the Les Schwab Tires NASCAR Street Stocks, Interstate Batteries Hornets, the new division the Super Stock Figure 8’s, FSCRA Super 4 Late Models and Pro 4 Truck Series. Racing begins at 6pm with spectator gates opening at 4pm.
Can someone dethrone Roger Drake, last year’s division champion in the Street Stock Division? Drake has won four of the first five races this season with the only other win by 17-year old second year driver Chad Fitzpatrick. There are a slew of drivers in this division that are capable of winning and a few wins strung together gets them back in the points chase for the title. Look for Steve Ptacek, Darrell Lutovsky or Jim Foti to finally get their season’s first win. Another that has come close is rookie Kevin Compton.
The 2013 Hornet Division championship went to the final night of racing to decide who won the title. This season is setting up to be the same. Point leader Scott Hunt who lost the championship by 2-points last season has 2-wins in 5-starts. Cody Hoopes is second in points and has yet to win but is always near the front. Last week’s race winner Zach Bristol is third and 14-year old rookie Justin Brave is fourth.
Quinton Borreson leads the points for the first ever Super Stock Figure 8 championship. This newest division races on the figure eight track with the ‘The Planets Most Dangerous Intersection’ the X. Borreson drives with one arm hence his nickname ‘The One Armed Bandit’. Steve Peters is second in points and his moniker is ‘The Battle Wagon’. Doug Delfel ‘The Griz’ is third in the chase for the championship.
Two traveling series roll into Evergreen this Saturday with the Pro 4 Truck Series making a second stop at the ‘Super Speedway of the West’. First time here Terry Warren was the winner. The FSCRA Super 4 Late Models will make their first of two stops this season. Rusty Sage won the opener for the series a few weeks ago at South Sound Speedway.
