By Ben Deatherage
Elma, Washington- Grays Harbor Raceway is back in racing action this weekend after a week off. The 3/8-mile clay oval will host 360 Sprints, Shipwreck Beads IMCA Modifieds, USAC Ford Focus Midgets, Cut Rate Auto Parts Street Stocks, and Hornets. It will be the final night of action when it comes to points for all classes as five champions will be crowned at the end of the evening. This is also the only track in the Pacific Northwest that you can see the breathtaking 360 Sprints shred some clay and the last time they will be at GHR in 2013.
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.
A special format will be utilized during the course of the evening. The top six in points will be locked into a scramble and lined straight up by points. Those cars will participate in a six lap race which the finish will determine the starting lineup of the front three rows of the feature. Cars not in the scramble will qualify and they will be lined straight up off of their times behind the first six cars (i.e. fast time of the evening will start seventh in the feature).
Don’t forget to make it out for the final race of the year on Saturday October 5th. This event will feature the Northwest Extreme Sprints, Cut Rate Auto Parts Street Stocks, and Hornets.
