Jumping the Start: Round #6 at Grays Harbor Raceway 
It isn't long until we have to turn our calendars over to June. In the meantime, Grays Harbor Raceway is set for round six this Saturday with four classes ready for action.

It’s round number four for the Summer Thunder Series, and it’s their first visit to GHR this season. Two-time and defending champion Jason Solwold leads the way with two wins and he holds a 30-point lead over Colton Heath. J.J. Hickle, Austen Wheatley, and Chase Goetz are in positions three through five.

The Pacific Hardtop Racing Association dwarf cars are always a popular draw in Elma, and they have five races there in ’17. Doug McVae won the season opener at Madras Speedway on May 6, but the driver who’s on a serious roll is Ryan Martinez. Ryan has won three straight races at Sunset Speedway on May 20, as well as this past Saturday and Sunday during the Spring Challenge Weekend.

In the Cut Rate Auto Parts street stocks, it’s a battle between second-year driver Scott Fritts and three-time and reigning champ Jack Parshall early on. Fritts edged out Parshall in a photo finish on May 6, but Parshall evened things up by bringing home the main event last Saturday. Parshall leads in points by only nine tallies over Fritts. Shane Kerrigan, Jason Tole, and Ryen Haney round out the top five.

As for the Shipwreck Beads modifieds, it’s anybody’s ballgame. Tom Sweatman was victorious in the Washington Modified Tour event on May 6, while Scott Miller scored his first victory of the season on May 20. Miller has a seven-point advantage over Kyler Moore with Zack Simpson, Sweatman, and Tyson Blood very close together. The top five drivers are separated by just 20 points and this season’s just getting started.

Grays Harbor Raceway is ready for another race featuring four divisions that are loaded with talent, and this night is sure to excite.
