Spokane, Wash. – Officials with the Northwest Super Late Model Series and its leadership head into the 2020 racing season under new ownership as Northwest Super Late Model Tour LLC has acquired the super late model touring group.
Since its humble 2014 beginning, the series had been under the ownership of Evans Racing Enterprises. With Garrett Evans entering a new phase in his racing career, he struck a deal with Jarrod Goodwin, Troy and Tillie Blanton along with Dan and Annette Garber that will see the show go on for years to come.
“We’ve been talking about this opportunity for a while and Garrett presented a package to us that will allow for this new ownership group to grow beyond where we have been the last few seasons and hopefully see some exciting new prospects in coming years,” Goodwin said.
Rules and track agreements are in place with the new ownership group with promotional and public relations activities being planned for the 2020 season and beyond, Goodwin added.
“We got our rulebook out early for the teams to plan for the new year, had the agreements in place for the current season which made the ownership change smooth for all involved.”
The series expects little noticeable changes to the teams, drivers and fans when racing resumes this spring. “We will have the same inspectors onboard with us this season and are gearing this year’s race dates towards one-day shows trying to minimize the expense for teams,” Goodwin explained. ‘Our goal is to provide a team with the chance to race the series in a one-day format which can lead to a savings on travel and other racing expenses. Our track partners are excited for the new year with this leadership group and we’re already hearing from future venues for upcoming seasons.”
NWSLMS action gets underway April 25 with the running of the Leonard Evans 150 at Wenatchee Valley Super Oval. For additional information log onto nwslms.com or the NWSLMS Facebook page.
