Cottage Grove, Oregon- Cottage Grove Speedway will host their first ever 4-Cylinder Nationals which is expected to bring some of the area’s best Hornet drivers to the historic ¼-mile clay oval. It will also be a Pepsi Family Night which means we will offer our normal family pass for two Adults and up to four Youths for just $35.00 but being that it is Pepsi Family Night complimentary small soft drink beverages will be included with the admission.
Classes in action that evening include the Hornets, Northwest Extreme Sprints, IMCA Modifieds, and Street Stocks. Pit Gates will open at 2:00 PM, Front Gates open at 4:00, and Racing starts at 6:45.
