Banks, Oregon- Back in April of 2009 the Northwest Wingless Tour hosted their first ever race at the Cottage Grove Speedway. Now on Saturday April 19th at Sunset Speedway Park the NWWT will host their sixth season in what should be a great night of racing.
The 2014 season will see the Northwest Wingless Tour visit tracks as large as Grays Harbor Raceway in Elma, Washington, which is a 3/8-mile clay oval, to the smallest venue “Banks Bullring” of Sunset Speedway Park, a 1/4-mile located just west of Portland. The visit on Saturday April 19th will be the first of three total visits to SSP this season.
In sixteen visits to Sunset since 2009 the NWWT has produced eight different winners. Bill Winsley leads the series in feature wins at SSP with four over Gary Davis who has three. Drivers that have two series wins at the ¼-mile clay oval include Theo McCarty, Sterling Kane, and Mitch Hoffses. Earning just one series victory when the tour has come to town have been Ryan Bothwell, Mark Nichols, and Tony Thomas.
In 2014 the Northwest Wingless Tour will participate in nine events at four different facilities in the Pacific Northwest. For the latest information log on to wingless.nwextremeseries.com. Also be sure and “like” us on Facebook.
