Wenatchee, WA – Officials with the Northwest Super Late Model Series in partnership with tracks in Washington, Oregon and Idaho have set the 2017 schedule of events. Entering its fourth year of competition, the NWSLMS is the premier super late model series in the Pacific Northwest.
The series opens the 2017 campaign on April 29 with the Leonard Evans 150 at Wenatchee Valley Super Oval. The race marks the first of two stops at the North Central Washington facility operated by Garrett Evans. Wenatchee Valley Super Oval is the site of the 2017 championship event, the Neal Newberry 125, scheduled for Sept. 23.
Spokane County Raceway’s half-mile Super Oval hosts the series on May 20 with the running of the Park Model Homes 125. The series returns to the Inland Northwest track on July 29 for a second 125-lap main event.
For the first time in series history Tenino’s South Sound Speedway hosts a 125-lap event featuring the stars of the Northwest Super Late Model Series. The June 3 race is the first of two new ventures for the NWSLMS in the month of June as the teams invade Douglas County Speedway on June 17. Also featuring a 125-lap main event, the Roseburg facility marks the return of the series to the state of Oregon for the first time since its inaugural season of 2014.
Also hosting the series for the first time in its history will be Meridian Speedway. The quarter-mile facility located just west of Boise features the top teams in the Northwest competing in a 125-lap main event on July 8.
Yakima Speedway brings back the famed Sun City 125 super late model showcase on August 19. The race is the only stop at the Central Washington speed plant during the 2017 season. The event marks the fourth consecutive season the half-mile track has hosted the series.
Drivers competing on the series in 2017 will face over 1,000 laps of competition stretching over six-month span.
“This off-season has been very busy for the series and its partner tracks as we’ve worked to feature one-day events for 2017,” said NWSLMS Series Director Jarrod Goodwin. “Fans and race teams alike have asked to schedule events at South Sound Speedway and we’re excited to work with the Behn family to make that happen on June 3. Sitting down with Adam Nelson to schedule a date at Meridian and the folks who oversee Douglas County Speedway eager to bring the series to Roseburg, we’re excited for the new season and can’t wait to continue the growth of the series.”
