Doug Hobbs of High Road Promotions, operators of Evergreen Speedway, “This is a dream in the making, building an event the size of the Summer Showdown featuring the best of the west super late model teams and drivers, in addition to our state and local teams and tour groups. A $500 start bonus has been added to the purse for any teams not moving on to the Summer Showdown from the Last Chance Qualifier. With calls coming from Southern California to the upper reaches of Canada, the international star studded event should have in excess of 40 cars entered. Add in the 40+ cars coming with the Pro 4 Alliance and the other divisions scheduled, over 150 race cars will be competing over the two days. The fans have asked for this type of event and we listened.”
Two drivers are eligible for a $2,000.00 bonus if either wins the Summer Showdown. By virtue of winning the Yakima Speedway Apple Cup, Owen Riddle became eligible as did Ron Eaton for winning Wenatchee Valley’s Super Oval Apple Blossom 200.
