Elma, Washington- After a week off Grays Harbor Raceway will get back to racing this Saturday September 14th. The night will feature a full lineup of all five of GHR’s staple classes. Those classes include the 360 Sprints, Shipwreck Beads IMCA Modifieds, USAC Ford Focus Midgets, Cut Rate Auto Parts Street Stocks, and Hornets.

Tickets for Saturday will be 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 around 6:30.

It seems like it has been quite some time since the 360 Sprint were last in action. After five events completed Reece Goetz continues to sit atop the winner’s list with two feature victories. Currently he is the only driver to have won more than once while Henry Van Dam, J.J. Hickle, and Evan Margeson have a single triumph apiece.

In Shipwreck Beads IMCA Modified action there is a three way tie for most victories. Joe German, Craig Moore, and Zack Simpson each have won twice this year at Grays Harbor Raceway. Joining them on the win chart for 2013 is Scott Miller, Jeff Foster, Alan Muenchow, Josh Muller, Jeremy Shank, and Jesse Williamson who have all won once.

Chase Goetz continues to dominate the USAC Ford Focus Midget ranks as he seeks his first career GHR championship. Goetz has visited victory lane a total of seven times while Jared Peterson has won twice and is the only driver to have beaten Goetz so far this year.

You could also say the Cut Rate Auto Parts Street Stocks is a realm of pure domination as well. Jason Tole has won eight times this year including the Cut Rate Auto Parts Iron Man 100. Cory Sweatman, Austin Kerrigan, and Jack Parshall are the only other drivers to have beat Tole and each of them has done so on one occasion. A tight point battle is underway with not many races left. Cory Sweatman has a narrow three point lead over Jason Tole headed into Saturday night.

Last but not least the Hornets are putting on a good championship battle. Defending champ Chad Norton has a slim five point advantage over Willie Wright coming into this weekend. Chad North and Jeff Daniel have each won three main events while Brian Norton has two triumphs to his credit. Willie Wright is the only driver to have won in the division once in 2013.

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, IMCA Modifieds, USAC Ford Focus Midgets, 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.
