Galloway 150 Press Release
$6,000 to Win Evergreen Season Opener with the Mark Galloway 150 Shootout
Evergreen Speedway kicks off the Speedway Chevrolet Super Late Model season on April 6,
2013 with the Mark Galloway 150 Shootout presented by Les Schwab. This years event
boasts $6000 to win and $600 to start the 34 car main event on the historic 5/8 mile oval.
In a slight break from the current trend of races with a half-time, the Galloway 150 will
pause for a few minutes at lap 100 to fuel up and throw on a couple tires and get right back
to racing for a 50 lap Shoot Out. The break will only be 4 minutes.
The field will feature some of the finest Late Model talent in the West. Defending Evergreen
champion Naima Lang will be on hand to do battle with just about every Late Model
Champion that has competed at Evergreen in the last 15 years, including John Zaretzke,
John Bender and Tom Moriarity. They’ll have their hands full though, as Shane Mitchell will
be making his first appearance at Evergreen in several years along with Idaho’s Jonathon
Gomez, who almost stole the show at last years Summer Showdown. Perennial fast guy and
track record holder Jason Fraser will also be on hand. NW Tour Champions Ron Eaton,
Garrett Evans and Gary Lewis are also expected, who, between the three, have won just
about every major race west of the Mississippi since 1985. It’s shaping up to be one of the
most hotly contested Super Late Model races of the year.
It will be a full show to open the season, as the Super Late Models are joined by the Les
Schwab Street Stocks where popular Chad Fitzpatrick will be making his debut, Jon “Fozzy”
Roberts will begin the defense of his title in the Foster Press Mini Stocks and the Interstate
Batteries Hornets will fill out the show with a run on the 3/8 oval.
The Super Late Models will have an opportunity to prepare with an open practice session on
the 5/8 oval Friday night April 5th. For Saturdays event, Pit Gate opens at 11:00 AM and
Front Gate opens to spectators at 3:30. Entry forms and complete information are available
