COTTAGE GROVE, Ore. – After last week’s disappointing rainout, Cottage Grove Speedway gets back to racing this Saturday, April 30 with Cottage Grove Area Chamber of Commerce Night. All current Chamber members get into the races for $5.
Classes in action include the Xtreme Motor Sports IMCA Modifieds, Karl Chevrolet Northern SportMods, Clark Printing Extreme Sprints, Street Stocks and Quality RV Repair Hornets.
Sanctioned Modifieds have competed at the ¼-mile clay oval twice in 2016. Collen Winebarger was victorious in the season opener and the most recent driver to enter the winner’s circle was Craig Hanson after an exciting late race pass. The IMCA SportMods have only been on hand once and that was when Jorddon Braaten took care of business and pulled off a clean sweep.
Pit gates open at 1 p.m. and the front gates open at 4 p.m. Racing starts at 6:30 p.m. Admission is adults $13, juniors, seniors and military $10, and youth ages 6-12 $5. Family passes are $30 and children five and under get in free. Pit passes are $30.
