Test-N-Tune & Gambler at Pacific Raceways

07 Oct 2018 Kent, WA – October racing in the northwest or as some say the “Northwet” is always a gamble. Todays ability to go on the smart phone and see what the weather is doing and forecasted to do just about to the second can be a blessing or a curse.

Adding to that the direction from which the weather is coming can by just a scant mile be totally different. This became the factor in in which the date became a “rainout” as Pacific Raceway was just inside the border of rain/no-rain and just enough came down to make it un-safe and irritate everyone.

The weather though looks good for the Oct. 13th date and the 20th is too far away and this is drag racing in the “Northwest” at its best.

Olympic Ironworks Motorcycle Race #1

02 May 2018 Kent, WA – Starting off the summer schedule Wednesday night the motorcycle riders were first up. This mid-week race has grown into a great meet and race around a bunch of friends.

Racers pitted around each other prepping their bikes, helping one another when needed and welcoming new riders to the race program. Combined with the bikes was a test and tune for cars and Jr. Dragsters. They filled up the lanes ready to test their machines and the track surface and its grip.

May 16th is the next date for the bikes, come on out for the mid-week racing.

Outlasting the rest of the class Mark Sires saved the best for last running one-thousands off his dial-in over Mike Evans who was a little off the mark.
