ELMA, Wash. -- On Friday, June 23, the Grays Harbor Raceway will host the sixth race of seven for the 2012 Wild Wild West Modified Shootout. There will be an admission special running exclusively for this event as a car load of fans will get into the races for only $25.

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.

Last year’s edition saw Brian Poppa emerge victorious to seal his fate as the series champion at GHR after winning the feature with 35 total cars making the trip.

The home turf will be defended fiercely by some of the local talent including Scott Miller who has three wins this season already. Other drivers who have visited victory lane include Joe German, Tom Sweatman, Lawrence O’Conner and Zack Simpson. Out of town drivers expected to make the trip will be five-time Southern Oregon Speedway champ Mark Wauge, defending Northwest Modified Nationals winner Kyle Casson, plus many more from Oregon, California and British Columbia.
