Elma, Washington- Just a friendly reminder to our wonderful race fans that there will be races this Saturday October 5th at Grays Harbor Raceway in Elma.

Classes on the card will include the Northwest Extreme Winged Sprints, Cut Rate Auto Parts Street Stocks, and Hornets. And don’t think for a minute that just because the championships have been decided that these guys are going to take it easy.

The Northwest Extreme Winged Sprints will make their fourth appearance of the year this Saturday. In the three previous completed events Kenny Rutz has been victorious twice while Sammy Wright has won once. In addition to this class competing they will be eligible for several giveaways courtesy of several generous organizations (complete list at the bottom of this release). We would again like to send huge thank you to Joe’s Racing Products, Richmond Engines, Barry Martinez with Speedmart Inc., A-1 Supply of Camrose, Alberta, and Highline Performance for donating these fantastic prizes.
