Cottage Grove, Oregon- Saturday April 9th will kick off the 2016 season for Cottage Grove Speedway. This year marks the 60th year of action at the historic ¼-mile clay oval and a special promotion will be offered for fans. The first 60 people to show up when the front gates open at 4:00 PM will get into the race for FREE. Classes in action include 360 Sprints, Late Models, IMCA Modifieds, Street Stocks, and the Quality RV Hornets.
“It is so awesome that Cottage Grove Speedway can say they’ve had racing here for the last 60 years,” commented CGS Promoter Heather Boyce, “we’re expecting a very good car count with cars coming from all over the area and out of state. It’s going to be a great time, so come on out.”
For the 360 Sprints several of the top drivers from the state of Washington will be making the journey south. But that doesn’t mean you should count out some of the stout local talent that will look to open their campaign up with a victory after the first round. An additional $100.00 bonus to the winner is up for grabs courtesy of Steve Zeek.
