Jumping the Start: Bob's Burgers and Brew Summer Nationals 
Summer is heating up, as well as the racing at Skagit Speedway. The Bob's Burgers and Brew Summer Nationals are coming up this Friday and Saturday, and it's one of the highest-paying 360 sprint car races in the country with $10,000 waiting for the winner.

The two nights of racing are rounds ten and eleven for the Summer Thunder Sprint Series. Jason Solwold continues to show the way in STSS points, as he leads Colton Heath by 45 points. J.J. Hickle sits third, while Austen Wheatley and Chase Goetz are tied for fourth.

Roger Crockett swept last year's Summer Nationals, and he did so by passing Solwold with four laps to go to collect the $10,000. Solwold settled for second, followed by Hickle, Eric Fisher, and Heath.

The outlaw tuners are the support class on Friday. It's a neck-and-neck battle for the top two positions in points between Vance Hibbard and Clint Meins. Hibbard has an 18-point lead, and also a three-to-two advantage in wins over Meins. D.J. Beaver, T.J. Campbell, and Brian Michelson are in a close battle for third through fifth in points. Michelson was the winner of last Saturday's race at Skagit.

The Northwest Focus Midgets return to Skagit for Saturday's card. It's round number six for them in the Summer Challenge powered by Bardahl. Tristin Thomas has won three of the four races at Skagit and he leads Nick Evans by 46 markers in track points. The most recent winner was Ross Rankine, who claimed last Saturday's race at Sunset Speedway. This is Rankine's second win of the year aboard Gaylon and Carla Stewart's "Fred Brownfield Tribute" #92 car.

The weather continues to be very warm here in the Pacific Northwest. Skagit Speedway is more than ready for a huge weekend with the Bob's Burgers and Brew Summer Nationals with sprint cars, outlaw tuners, and midgets all part of the program.
