Elma, Washington- Some big news from Grays Harbor Raceway in the 360 Sprint division. For several years drivers wishing to compete at the 3/8-mile clay had to run the ASCS stamped heads. That rule has been opened up to where Sprint Car teams now can run just the ASCS Intake Gasket. The change is expected to attract drivers that may have not been completely legal according to the heads rule and bring a boost to the car count.
“We feel this rule change will bring Sprint Cars out of garages,” commented Nikki Gamell, General Manager of Grays Harbor Raceway, “we hope they can come out and have some fun running once again at Grays Harbor.”
360 Sprints are a regular fixture at Grays Harbor Raceway and are featured pretty much on a weekly basis. The facility has recently produced some very good talent including Seth Bergman and Logan Forler both of which are regulars on the American Sprint Car Series-National Tour. In the last five years there have been five different 360 Sprint champions at Grays Harbor Raceway.
The Grays Harbor Raceway is known for its high speeds and side by side racing as well as its large track size. Hosting racing action from April to October regular classes include 360 Sprints, Shipwreck Beads IMCA Modifieds, USAC Ford Focus Midgets, Cut Rate Auto Parts Street Stocks, Hornets, and for the first time the Northwest Extreme Winged Sprint Car Series. Special events include visits by the World of Outlaw Sprint Car Series and American Sprint Car Series-Northwest Region.
