Racing Season Starts June 27th!
Following the Participant Only guidelines outlined in Governor Inslee’s Proclamation 20-25, Evergreen Speedway will begin our regular season schedule of events. We will be operating under the No Crowd rules until we have permission to allow fan attendance. This announcement has SEVERAL important messages for fans, teams, marketing partners and car sponsors.
One HUGE announcement is our partnership with CBS TV affiliate CW11 in Seattle. Previously, we had been prepared to live stream races without fans, so this news was very exciting. EVERY race from June 27th through the end of the season will be rebroadcast on Sunday evenings to their 4,300,000 broadcast reach. We are very excited to produce a 2 hour show of our Home Track Hero’s. Multiple cameras and staff interviews will put you in front of family, friends, co-workers and marketing partners.
All races beginning with the June 27th race will be point races.
While there are no crowds allowed at this point we will be paying 75% of the normal weekly purse. As soon as we are allowed to have 25% capacity, purse payouts will be 100%. We appreciate your support and hope to be fully operational in a few weeks. Every step is being taken to protect our teams and our employees during this difficult time. We will win together and defeat this virus.
Our amended schedule will be for events up through August 1st at this point. We are still working with ARCA, Formula Drift and other traveling series to finalize the months of August through mid October.
With Covid-19 and the Phases we are operating under, it is with much sadness to announce the Mark Galloway Shootout and Summer Showdown will be postponed til the 2021 season. With restrictions varying by state, and the Canadian border closed, we simply do not know when crowds are back to normal levels and when State to State restrictions will be eased.
Our focus will concentrate on our 10 Home Track classes for the bulk of our season.
We are grateful to be able to even start our season by the end of June. While we have missed many weeks of racing we assure each of you we will produce the best shows possible and showcase our Drivers, Teams, Sponsors and Evergreen Speedway to make you proud.
Our first race June 27th will feature our Pro Late Models, Mini Stocks, Hornets, Legends and Pro 4 Trucks.
Thank you as ALWAYS,
Doug, Traci and our Evergreen Team!
