Elma, Washington- The biggest IMCA Modified race in the entire Pacific Northwest will take place on Friday July 26th and Saturday the 27th at Grays Harbor Raceway. The dates will mark the annual Shipwreck Beads Northwest Modified Nationals and is sure to attract a large field of cars for two nights of action.

The first night, on Friday July 26th, will be preliminary action consisting of two sets of heat races. The night will conclude with the Race Of Champions which will feature a field full of decorated drivers. The deal of the weekend will be the “Car Load Special” on Friday. Fans will be charged $25.00 by the car load for this night only. But the special isn’t limited to cars specifically. Fans turning out in Trucks, Vans, Motor Homes, etc. are also eligible. So pack those vehicles and come out and see some great racing.

Saturday evening will consist of trophy dashes, consolation features, last chance qualifiers, and of course the main event. The Shipwreck Beads Northwest Modified Nationals have proved to be a premier event with the win list comprised of a who’s who in Modified racing. In the last six years there have been six different winners and only two drivers have managed to win it more than once since the first running in 2000. Last year over sixty entries signed in on the registration sheets to compete over the weekend and Mark Wauge would best them all in the final race of the night.

For both nights tickets will be for Adults $13.00, Senior (62+)/Juniors (13-18)/Military $10.00, Youths (6-12) $5.00, Youths (5 and Under) FREE, Family Pass (Two Adults and Up To Four Youths) $30.00, and Premium Seating $20.00. Pit gates open at 2:30, front gates, 4:30, and racing starting at 6:30. But don’t forget about Friday’s “Car Load Special” for $25.00 a car load.
