$1000 to win Figure 8 Open Competition Opener
Evergreen Speedway kicks off the Emerald City Harley Davidson Figure 8 racing season on
March 30, 2013 during the Devastation 1 Demo Derby and giant fireworks show. This years
event boasts $1000 to win on the historic 1/5 mile figure eight course and a $250 bonus if a
Stock Figure 8 class competitor can win the main in a stock class car. In typical open
competition fashion, cars from other figure 8 groups from all over the west will be allowed
to compete and no local season points will be awarded. Promoter Doug Hobbs said, “It will
be an exciting night of racing. We expect to see the first track record fall for 2013!”
Some of the fastest and most accomplished figure eight racers in the Northwest are
expected to compete. Multi-Championship winning Steve Peters in the notorious
Battlewagon will be on hand to do battle with The One Armed Bandit Quinton Borreson,
Ryan Gunderson in his immaculately prepared Super Figure 8 car out of the Gunderson’s
Speed Shop and former Stinger 8 Champion Lance Ograin will wheel the 2012 championship
car for Jake Repin!
It will be a full show to open the season, as the Interstate Batteries Hornets and Buzz Inn Steakhouse Stinger 8’s open up their
season along with fan favorite V8 Xtremes and Boat Races. The night’s action will be
capped with a Demolition Derby and a spectacular fireworks show!
Pit Gate opens at 2:00 PM and Front Gate opens to spectators at 4:00. Complete information
