Hubbard’s Win 8 Hour Enduro at Evergreen Speedway
Monroe, WA (March 27, 2011): The father son team of Mark and Cullen Hubbard (Seattle) won the first annual Interstate Batteries Built Tough 8 Hour Enduro at Evergreen Speedway on Sunday March 27th. Forty-Two cars started the long endurance race at 10am and 26 finished eight hours later at 6pm. Second place went to another father son team of Troy and Brett Fetzer (Everett) on son Brett’s 21st birthday. Finishing third was the family team of Donald and Bruce Hall (Issaquah, Maple Valley).
The Hubbard team was down over four laps to the leaders. Attrition and driver changes caused the other leading teams to relinquish the lead to the Hubbard’s with over 2.5 hours remaining. When asked if they knew they were leading, Mark stated, “we heard we were up by three laps so when the Fetzer team passed us a few times I raced like crazy at the end.” The Hubbard’s won the race by six laps and the $4,000.00 winner’s check.
Up next at Evergreen Speedway on Saturday April 2nd is the season opener on the giant 5/8 mile oval. Returning are the fastest group of cars ever to race on the ‘Super Speedway of the West’, the ASA (American Speed Association) NSRA (Northwest Sprintcar Racing Association) and their first time at Evergreen Speedway the Trick Racing Gasoline Super Late Model 125. Racing starts at 6pm.
