Cottage Grove, Oregon- After a day off to rest and recover the Wild West Modified Speedweek resumes on Tuesday July 22nd and Wednesday the 23rd at Cottage Grove Speedway. Both dates are expected to have very good car counts and should produce some great races.
Jesse Williamson has won the last two Wild West Modified Speedweeks while the inaugural edition went to Brian Poppa. In two Speedweek races at CGS there have been two different winners which are Jesse Williamson and Scott Lenz.
In local action at Cottage Grove Braedon Hand leads the point standings as well as achieving the most wins with four. Mark Wauge has three while Tom Berry Jr. and Jesse Williamson have one apiece.
Already in this year’s edition the two races at Sunset Speedway Park have produced two different winners. They are Travis Peery and Mark Carrell.
Both events will offer a $25.00 Car Load Special which means a carload, tuck-load, or RV-load full of fans get into the race for just $25.00. And racing is scheduled to get underway around 6:45 PM each night. For more information log on to www.cottagegrovespeedway.com.
