ELMA, Wash. -- The 2012 season has been full of cancellations in the Northwest which has left fans and race teams alike frustrated and disappointed.

May 19th will see the return of both 360 Sprints and USAC Ford Focus Midgets as well as the USRA Modifieds and Hornets. The month will conclude with the ASCS-Northwest Region’s Spring Showdown on the 26th and 27th with USRA Modifieds and Hobby Stocks supporting the Sprints on both days as the support classes.

The Grays Harbor Raceway is known for its high speeds and side-by-side racing as well as its sheer large size. Hosting regular racing action from April to September with 360 Sprints, USRA Modifieds, USAC Midgets, Hobby Stocks, and Hornets as regular classes.
