The Northwest Focus Midget Series is back in action for a busy weekend with two shows on tap. The first stop will be Deming Speedway on Friday, June 2nd followed by Saturday, the 3rd, at Skagit Speedway. The last planned visit to Deming was lost to weather while Skagit Speedway would see Ross Rankine park the Fred Brownfield tribute car in victory lane.

So far in 2017 four races have been recorded complete. Defending series champion Nick Evans manages to be to the only multi-feature winner this season. Evans has two wins while Ross Rankine and Tristin Thomas have one each. Thomas collected a big win at Southern Oregon Speedway last weekend in the first round of the Summer Challenge Powered By Bardahl.

“Last week was really great being that it was our first time at Southern Oregon Speedway,” commented Northwest Focus Midget Series co-owner Carla Stewart, “we ended up having twenty-three cars and the main event was practically incident free until the last lap. The staff and the fans at Southern Oregon were so great and made it worth the trip. We can’t wait to make a return trip next season.”

There have been fourteen Northwest Focus Midget Series races at Deming Speedway producing seven different winners. Michael Vollbrecht leads the win list with five, all of which were achieved in 2015, while Nick Evans has three. Eric Turner is the only other multi-feature winner, with too, and single race victors include Chance Crum, Jacob Brown, Jared Peterson, and Tristin Thomas.

Skagit Speedway has hosted eleven Northwest Focus Midget Series events with five different drivers managing to obtain victories. Tristin Thomas has the most wins, with four, while Garrett Thomas has parked it in the winner’s circle three times. Defending series and track champion Nick Evans has two triumphs at Skagit while the only single race winners are Kelsey Carpenter and most recently Ross Rankine.

“We are so excited that we are getting into some warmer weather and get some racing in.”
