BANKS, Ore. -- The caravan of USRA Modified teams from all over the Northwest will be stopping at the Sunset Speedway Park on Wednesday, June 20, for what is expected to be the fifth of seven races for the 2012 Wild Wild Modified Shootout.

For the second year the Wild Wild West Modified Shootout will tour from southern Oregon to all the way to western Washington. This year there will be a stop in Northern California to make it seven races in eight days across three states which come out to be over 700 miles on the road over the course the series of races.

In 2011, Brian Poppa was the victor while a total of 32 cars made the trip to the Banks bullring.

After three USRA Modified features in 2012 there have been three different winners. Local stars Doug Davenport and Sonny Sayre have one win a piece as well as veteran chauffer Clint Petty. Other fast drivers in the area such as Mark Reser, Chris Quinn, and Kenny Miller are all expected to be on hand.

A strong contingent of invaders is planning to be present including runner-up in last year’s Wild Wild West Modified Shootout point Mark Wauge a five-time Southern Oregon Speedway track champion. You can include also defending Northwest Modified Nationals winner Kyle Casson and Canadian “Sir” Lawrence O’Conner. There will be plenty of drivers from across the Northwest looking to capture the victory and you can guarantee it will not be simple by any means.

No doubt in everyone’s mind will be the presence of Ken Schrader adding some spice to the event. The NASCAR Sprint Cup Series veteran already has seven wins this season in six different states across the country. Noted for his love of racing in 2011 he entered in 63 separate events in 20 states and three Canadian provinces and went on to win 18 features.

The Sunset Speedway Park is located just west of the Portland metro area in Banks on the Sunset Highway. The venue is located in a gorgeous small town setting with rolling hills in the background and hosts weekly competition with Northwest Extreme Sprint Car Series, Northwest Wingless Tour, USRA Modifieds, Street Stocks, 4-Bees, Pure Stocks, Womens, and Tracers classes.
