LEBANON, Ore. -- Fans of the Willamette Speedway will get their fix this coming Wednesday, July 4, for the Firecracker 40. The Independence Day race will feature the Interstate Sprint Car Series for their debut at the historic 1/3 mile oval and only their second race of the group’s 2012 season. The USRA Modifieds and Mini Trucks will also be on hand and the night will come to a close with what is expected to be a terrific fireworks display.

Roger Crockett is the only driver in 2012 to record a victory with the ISCS Sprint Series way back in May at the Southern Oregon Speedway. This season there is yet to be a repeat winner in USRA Modified main events with both Ken Schrader and Kyle Yeack winning the two non-point events while Mark Wauge, Jesse Williamson, Craig Cassell, and Dustin Dittman have visited victory lane also. There have only been two Mini Truck races this year and Mark Vonsil and Scott Lehman have both been winners so far this year.

The Wednesday July 4th event will have special pricing which are the following: Adults $15.00, Youths (Ages 6-12) $8.00, Youths (Ages 5 and Under) FREE, a Family Pass (Two Adults and up to Four Youths) $35.00, and Pit Passes are $30.00. The event starts a little bit later on Monday evening also with front gates opening up at 4:30 and racing at 7:00.

The week doesn’t slow down anytime soon with Friday July 6th will see the return of the Karts for their second race of the year. Saturday June 7th will host the Willamette 100 which will have both the DirtCar Super Late Models and USRA Modifieds participate in a one hundred lap feature with the Sportsman being the support class for the evening. Don’t forget the American Sprint Car Series-National Tour pay their first ever visit to the Willamette Speedway on July 13th and 14th.

The Willamette Speedway has operated since the 1960’s and has been regarded as the “Late Model Capital of the Northwest” for many years and is anxious to host fans with the vast upgrades and improvements done over the 2011-12 winter. The venue will host the World of Outlaw Sprint Car Series and the American Sprint Car Series-National Tour along with weekly action comprising of DirtCar Late Models, USRA Modifieds, Sportsman, Classics, and Mini Trucks.
