June 21 Family Night presented by Frontier Communications
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.
