TUMWATER, Washington — Head out to South Sound Speedway in Rochester, Wash., this Saturday to watch history being made when 16-year-old Jessica Dana becomes the youngest female driver to race in the prestigious Miller 200.
In addition to seeing some of the best late-model racers in the Pacific Northwest battle on “The Fastest Three-Eighths Mile on the West Coast,” you can walk away with a coupon for a sweet treat perfect for the summer.
That’s because Jessica’s sponsor the Margent Corporation — owner of all Dairy Queen franchises in Thurston and Lewis counties — has generously donated several hundred coupons good for one free DQ ice cream cone that she will hand out at the track.
In addition to having a large DQ Blizzard decal on the hood of her No. 12 Super Late Model, Jessica is pleased and proud to carry on her racecar the logos of Dana Commercial, Grimm Collections, Olympic Auto Body and Quality Auto Care.
The front gate at South Sound Speedway opens at 4:45 p.m. on Saturday for the Miller 200. The Super Late Model division will qualify at 5 p.m. and run a B Main on Saturday prior to the main event, which is presented by Miller and Pepsi. Also slated to race will be the D&S Light Truck & Auto Mini Stocks, Tire Dog Bumblebees and HiLine Homes Legends. For more information including ticket prices, visit www.southsoundspeedway.com.
