 Open Letter and Invitation to all my sprint car and open wheel friends and fans.Weather is looking great for the Friday Night Western Washington Racing association event on August,19th at Evergreen Speedway's 3/8th. Enough people showed up at the last race to carry them through this race and with everyone's help this Friday, they can make it through the last race in Sept. It would be great to end the season with a reunion and corn feed like we did the last race of Sky Valley. Crazy Wally and his wife have been working on a list of behind the scenes people for all of the Post Dirt seasons and I will try to bring Part Three of the sage up to date when I get the names.Grandstand admission is free. Back gate opens at 4:00pm.Loren Day and I will bring our nostalgia Sky Valley cars this Friday to have a little FUN like old times. I got new shocks so maybe that will take a little of the squirrel out of the car....then maybe not. Could just be the old driver.

This event has come and gone.
Western Washington Racing Association (The extended version of Sky Valley Racing Association) has decided to end it with 59 years of auto racing in the3 Monroe area.

This is a memorial lap for the end of an era.
My old white car actually ran up on the dirt.

Loren Day who was a regular fixture of the old dirt track is in his Blue Sky Valley Modified.

Leading the diamond formation is Tom Root representing the whole Root family so deeply rooted in the early days of Sky Valley.

And in the push truck helping out as always, Crazy Wally and his wife. Wally has done about everything within the club and has been a big asset FOREVER.

THANKS TO EVERYONE THAT MADE THIS A SPECIAL NIGHT

:( Unbelievable how much this Evergreen Speedway Friday Night program is going to be missed. Looking back through my notes as an announcer there, we really had a mix of racers that just wanted to race. Pro-truck, bomber, full size truck, figure 8, dwarf, legend, hornet, sprint car, midget, street stock, late model,everyone was welcome and track time was always plentiful. It was a challenge from the announcer stand point because I never knew who would show up and I was not familiar with all the different classes that ran there, but I learned. I was told that in all the years of racing, some had never had a roving mic stuck in there face while working on the car in the pits during a race, but that is what I enjoyed the most.

With a grandson ready to move into a sprint car, what better place to get seat time than the old days of WWRA. Yup, gonna miss it bad.;)

With that being said, race season is just around the corner and practice days are scheduled. I have been told there will be a Test and Tune practice 3/24/17 & 3/25/17
