Banks, Oregon- Some great news for the Friday July 4th event on Independence Day at Sunset Speedway Park in Banks. The fine folks at Baseline Pawn in Cornelius have decided to sponsor this wonderful event. On tap for the evening will be the Northwest Extreme Late Model Series, IMCA Modifieds, Street Stocks, and 4-Bee’s. And to cap everything off a massive fireworks display will take place once all the racing is complete.
“Baseline Pawn strives to support local businesses and is excited to partner up with Sunset Speedway this year,” commented Sheila Christensen of Baseline Pawn, “Baseline Pawn customers can enter their name for a pass to our July 4th grandstand celebration!”
Greg Walters has won this event four times since 2007, including last year, while Brandon Lindberg picked up a win in the rain shortened 2008 edition. In 2012 Jerry Schram was the winner which saw the aforementioned series race against the DIRTcar Super Late Model chauffeurs that regularly inhabit the Willamette Speedway in Lebanon.
