The Montana 200 is one of the biggest Super Late Model races west of the Mississippi River of the year. It always brings out the toughest competition in the Northwest and produces fantastic racing. We wanted to explore an in-depth look at the Montana 200 in this edition of “By the Numbers.”
3: After three starts in the Montana 200, Tayler Riddle is ready to pocket a victory. After checking off the Summer Showdown and the Chilly Willy, it’s only time for a win in big sky country. His best was a third-place run.
9pm: The main event rolls off at 9pm. Hopefully you are in your seat or watching the Speed51.com Trackside Now coverage.
11: Shane Mitchell gets ready to make his 11th start in the Montana 200. He is a former winner and has five top 10’s and three top five runs in the Montana 200.
24: Jeremy Doss took the lead with 24-laps to go and he would go on to win the 2016 Montana 200.
27: This will be the 27th running of the Montana 200. The first race was run back in 1991.
30: Early reports are showing close to 30 or more cars will be entered for the race.
64: The famous car number that Garrett Evans used to win the 2014 edition of the Montana 200. It’s a number that northwest race fans know well. Now at the age of 60, Evans seeks another big win. The former four-time NASCAR Northwest Champion has been first and second in his last three starts at the 200.
200: The historic northwest race is 200-laps long for the Super Late Models.
361: Owen Riddle won the Montana 200 in 2015 after leading all 200 laps. He has led 361 total laps in the last three Montana 200’s. The only downside is he hasn’t made it past halfway but once.
1995: Mark Owens won the race in 1995. Since 2001 he has a total of five top five finishes and seven top 10 finishes in 11 known starts. Some history of the race, like full results are unavailable. If you have information please email us.
