Bobby Wheeler Jr., owner and driver of car 22, was the winner of the 20 lap Main Event at Yakima Speedway Saturday August 13th. Bobby took the lead right from the start of the race and held his position to the checkered flag. It was a great night of racing. Congratulations Bobby, it was a great show for the fans.


There was a battle for second place during the Main Event, between Jeff Peterson car 28, and Paul Field car 21 who was running number 7 for Mike Clother. Jeff came in 2nd and Paul came in 3rd. Chuck Peterson car 23, who was running number 88 for Robert Rux, came in 4th.

Paul Field won the Trophy Dash, making a clean sweep of the race. Paul took off fast and he did not slow down until after the checkered flag.

Robert Rux blew his motor during the practice laps, which was a real unfortunate for the 88 team, that is the second motor for this season.

The next race will be at Ephrata Raceway Park, Ephrata WA. Other classes running on August 27th will be the Youth Hornets, Street Stocks and the Super Stocks / Big Cars. For information about Ephrata Raceway or lodging in the area CLICK HERE.
