Despite some wet weather in the Pacific Northwest the Northwest Wingless Tour was able to kick off their 2014 season at the Cottage Grove Speedway on Saturday May 3rd. A total of nineteen entries would make the journey to the historic ¼-mile clay oval including teams from Oregon, Washington, and California. Also regulars of the Oregon Double Shot Series were able to make the trip too.

The feature would be a thriller with it all being settled in the last few laps. Forest Grove driver Jake Gilman, in his Habitat For Humanity/Auto-Inter/Scott Raines Excavating #11X Maxim, would seize the lead on the initial start in his CGS debut. Gilman would surrender the lead on lap four to Mike Romig. Romig, from Vancouver, Washington and driving the Herz Precision Parts #22 Eagle, set a rapid pace as he searched for his first career NWWT triumph.

Romig was quick and looked to be en route to victory lane but Cottage Grove native Colin Baker captured the top spot on lap ten, in the Hedge Carter owned Huddle Automotive Repair/Oregon West RV/Steelhouse Metal Roofing/Hedge Carter Continuous Gutter Service #71 XXX, shortly after a restart.

Baker would operate his mount on the high side and built a huge lead on several occasions only for it to be cut down considerably due to a few cautions. A late race showdown would take place between Baker and the Automotive Sheetmetal/Gary’s Subaru Service/K&S Motorsports #10 XXX of Kyle Miller from Salem. The two would battle it out in the final ten laps with Miller setting up a move on lap twenty-two only to have the red flag come out.

The late race green-white-checker restart would have Baker and Miller again race for the lead. Miller tried to make the pass on the last lap but Baker would hold him off to capture his first career Northwest Wingless Tour victory.

Kyle Miller was a respectable second place over Mike Romig in third. Completing the top five would be Jeff Sibley of Oakdale, California in his Western Plumbing/Haiden Ford/S&S Automotive #42N TCR entry in fourth followed by Eugene’s Ozzie Osburn in the Tim Galloway owned Huddle Automotive Repair/Hedge Carter Continuous Gutter Service #1 KPC in fifth. Earning the Jim’s Tire Factory quick time award was Kyle Miller while heat race winners were Miller, Colin Baker, and Osburn.

The Northwest Wingless Tour will venture to their next event on Saturday May 17th to the “House That Fred Built” Grays Harbor Raceway in Elma, Washington. Be sure and check out the latest information regarding the NWWT by visiting wingless.nwextremeseries.com
