Wheatley Excited for Opportunity to Run Dirt Cup This Weekend

Inside Line Promotions - LAKE STEVENS, Wash. (June 20, 2018) - Austen Wheatley will make his season debut at his home track this weekend when Skagit Speedway hosts the 47th annual Jim Raper Memorial Dirt Cup.

The Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour presented by SawBlade.com event runs Thursday through Saturday at the high-banked oval in Alger, Wash., where Wheatley captured his first career feature win in the United States in 2014.

"Skagit is a special place because not only did I grow up going to races there, it was the first track in the U.S. where I won," he said. "We've been a consistent top-10 car there, but the goal for Dirt Cup is to win."

Wheatley will be behind the wheel of his family owned No. 45. He has one race under his belt this season, placing sixth at the beginning of this month at Grays Harbor Raceway in Elma, Wash.

"I'm sure it will take me a hot lap session to get acclimated to racing at Skagit since we haven't been there since last September," he said. "I think we can pick up where we left off and we'll have a fast race car."

Wheatley has earned a top-10 finish during 12 of his last 17 360ci winged sprint car starts at the track.
