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.

Time to Review: Fred Brownfield Classic III reflections 
The Lucas Oil ASCS Sprint Car Dirt Series presented by MAVTV Motorsports Network was in Washington the past two weekends racing in two premier events. They were at Skagit Speedway on June 22, 23, and 24 for the 46th annual Jim Raper Memorial Dirt Cup presented by Skagit Casino Resort. Aaron Reutzel took the first night, but defending series champion and points leader Sam Hafertepe, Jr. won the other two nights to win $15,000 for the second consecutive year. Give that entire weekend to "The Lone Star State". The ASCS head southbound to Grays Harbor Raceway for the third annual Fred Brownfield Classic presented by Little Creek Casino Resort last Friday and Saturday, where they were joined by the Northwest Focus Midgets.

Shane Biles led from the pole in Friday's midget 25-lap A-Main and he showed the way for the first seven laps. Two yellow flags came out early on, as the first one happened on lap seven when Randy Hodel stopped in turn three. The second yellow was displayed on the restart for Hailey Bower, who came to a halt down low in turn two. It was clean and green for that moment on and the top spot changed hands as the field came to complete the eighth lap. Chance Crum went to the inside of Biles in turn three and made it stick. As Crum pulled away, Biles had some tough company behind him. That included 16th-place starter Nik Larson, Garrett Thomas, Hespe, and Jonathan Jorgenson. Crum cruised to an easy win with Biles getting his best finish in a midget with a second-place run. Third place went to Larson with Thomas fourth and Jorgenson fifth.

It took three tries to get the ASCS main event off and running. The first attempt was tossed out, as Wayne Johnson stopped in turn two. The restart had a red flag when Garen Linder flipped end over end in turn three. Linder was uninjured. Reutzel was the pole sitter in the 25-lapper, but it was outside front row starter Covington that led the opening lap. Reutzel took the lead from Covington out of turn two on the following lap, but the third place car of Hafertepe was coming with a full head of steam. Hafertepe passed both Reutzel and Covington out of turn four to complete lap number two, but it was all for naught as the yellow flag came out moments later. It was for Jason Solwold, who fell off the pace in turns three and four. That gave the lead back to Covington. Reutzel was second and Hafertepe had to fall back to third. Covington maintained a comfortable lead, while Reutzel and Hafertepe had a helluva battle behind for second place. Sam tried to go to the inside of Aaron on the frontstretch on lap seven, but Aaron slammed the door. Sam completed the pass on Aaron on the twelfth lap in turn three to move up to second, but Aaron got it back two laps later on the backstretch when Sam was trapped behind the slower car of Devin Madonia. Hafertepe turned the tables back in his favor, as he went to the inside of Reutzel in turns one and two on lap 18. Hafertepe cut into Covington's lead and looked to the inside in turns one and two on the 20th circuit, but he went too low and clipped an infield tire. Sam tipped over onto his side, and that was the end of the night for the defending Brownfield Classic winner. Covington had total control of the race and he won his first ASCS national race in almost three years. Reutzel, Johnny Herrera, and Roger Crockett were locked into Saturday's big dance by finishing in positions two through four. Skylar Gee rounded out the top five.

Glenn Bittrolf shared the front row with Brian Aune in Saturday's 25-lap midget feature, but "Bad News" Nick Evans went by both of them down the backstretch on the first lap. Nick was behind the wheel of Biles' #31 car, as his own #24 machine lost power in hot laps/time trials. Behind Nick, Hespe started sixth and went to the outside in turns three and four to pass Larson, Aune, and Bittrolf. Just like that, Seth was in second. Right after the completion of lap three, Bittrolf and Larson made contact while racing for fourth and Larson flipped over in turn one. Nik was unhurt. The yellow lights came on for the restart, as Hannah Lindquist spun in turn four. On the fifth lap, Crum went on the high scary side to steal second from Hespe out of turn two. Chance went to the inside of Evans in turn one a couple of laps later and made the pass. The last yellow flag came out with ten laps in the books, as Brian Hayes spun in turn four and got drilled by Bittrolf. Both drivers were okay. While Crum was pulling away after the restart, Evans was holding off Hespe on repeated occasions. Crum completed the weekend sweep with Evans, Hespe, 12th-starting Thomas, and 11th-starting Jorgenson rounding out the top five.

It was a battle of Oregon and Oklahoma in the ASCS 30-lap big show with Crockett on the pole and Covington alongside. The first try to start was a no-go, as Harli White and Hafertepe went spinning between turns three and four in front of the majority of the field. Fortunately, no other driver was inolved. Crockett stormed to the lead and the fight was on for second, as Herrera used a slide job in turns three and four to get by Covington on lap two. The race was slowed down on the next lap, as Madonia stopped in turn three. On the restart, Johnson took the high side to pass Covington for third in turn two. Then, Wayne went down low on Herrera in turn three on the following lap to grab second. Reutzel wanted to be a part of the action and he had third for a moment on the tenth lap out of turn four, but Herrera got back by on the following lap in turn two. Colton Heath was in the top five, as he dove low on Covington in turn three with seven laps to go. Heath wasn't finished, as he stole fourth from Reutzel at almost the exact same location on lap number 26. Just after Crockett took the white flag, he saw the yellow lights come on when Jay Cole wheelied into a spin in turn four. There were three lapped cars between Crockett and Johnson, so Crockett had the space he needed to win. Roger won the third annual Fred Brownfield Memorial in '09 at GHR, but he was disqualified for being light at the scales and that gave the victory to Travis Rilat. Fast forward to 2017, and "The Rocket" got the job done to win one for the Pacific Northwest. Johnson crossed the stripe second with Herrera third, Heath fourth, and Blake Hahn had an unbelievable charge from 22nd to fifth.

No matter if it's the ASCS or the World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Cars, they are the best drivers in the business and they don't disappoint when they come to our neck of the woods. This year's Brownfield was another success and I'm already looking forward to next year. Here's a handful of tidbits from the weekend...

Almost a Match: There were 51 drivers in the first Fred Brownfield Classic in 2015 and that number went up to 68 racers in 2016. We nearly reached last year's mark, as we were two people short. There were 38 different sprint car racers along with 28 midget competitors in this year's running for a grand total of 66 entries.

Pieces of Eight: With his weekend sweep, Crum went from zero midget victories in to two in one fell swoop. Chance has a total of eight wins this season. He has two triumphs in 600 sprints, along with four victories in 1200 action. He has 13 wins last season, and he looks to match or top that number with plenty of racing left to go.

Grandpa Should Be Proud: Gaylon and Carla Stewart's #92 midget was in competition, and what better person to drive it than Brownfield's own grandson Hespe? Seth started Friday's main event in the second spot, but he fell to sixth at the checkers. After winning Saturday's opening heat race, Seth lined up sixth in the A. He tried every trick in the book to pass Evans for second for most of the race, but nothing doing. Seth settled for third to match his finish one year ago.

Snapping a Slump: Covington finally broke through with a win on Friday and it ended a 98-race skid. Prior to that, the last time Matt won an ASCS national event was on October 18, 2014 at Devil's Bowl Speedway in the 41st annual Winter Nationals. He got the W over Dusty Zomer, Reutzel, Jeff Swindell, and Derek Hagar.

Texas Tears It Up: Even though Hafertepe or Reutzel didn't win at Elma, they still lead the way in the win column by a landslide with the ASCS. The two Texas drivers are combined for 13 wins in the 18 races so far (Sam has won nine times, while Aaron has four victories). A very distant second is the state of Missouri with two victories (Kyle Bellm and Brian Brown). Colorado (Jake Bubak), Oklahoma (Covington), and Oregon (Crockett) have one win each.

Getting Closer: Before the Brownfield, Hafertepe had a 143-point lead over Reutzel. Reutzel narrowed it down to 93 markers with a second-place finish, as Hafertepe was a DNF after his Tommy Tipover. Aaron had another shot to cut into Sam's point lead on Saturday and looked to be on his way to do that. Aaron was running fifth with two to go, but went backwards to 11th at the checkered flag. That's just one spot ahead of Hafertepe, as Sam ran most of the race with his nose wing wedged onto his hood. Hafertepe's advantage is now 91 points, as the ASCS travels to Gallatin Speedway Friday and Saturday for the second annual Grizzly Nationals.

Skylar's the Limit: Gee registered his first top five finish in ASCS national competition on Friday with a fifth-place result. He had to come through the first B-Main on Saturday, where he finished third after starting sixth. Skylar climbed eleven spots to tenth in the A to collect his eighth top ten finish of the year. He leads the Brodix "Rookie of the Year" chase by a very healthy margin over White.

Blazin' Blake: Hahn raced in one of the twin B-Mains both nights and had to do put in some extra effort to make it to the A. Blake passed four cars to finish 13th on Friday, but he put on a whale of a show on Saturday. He started 22nd (dead last) in the feature and he was in the top ten in only five laps. Blake took fifth place from Reutzel down the backstretch with a lap and a half to go, and that's where he ended up. That was more than plenty to collect the CP-Carrillo Hard Charger Award. Other big movers were Solwold (20th to seventh), Seth Bergman (18th to ninth), and Gee.

"The Crowd Pleaser" Returns: Craig Dollansky made his first trip to the Pacific Northwest in almost four years and he piloted the BDS Motorsports #1 car. Craig made the A-Main in two of the three nights of Dirt Cup, getting finishes of 13th and 12th. He was the CP-Carrillo Hard Charger Award winner on Friday with another 12th place run after starting 20th, and improved to eighth on Saturday. It was cool to see Craig back in Elma, but it's really strange not seeing him with the World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Cars.

Number for the Weekend: 9...the number of ASCS national drivers that came to this year's Brownfield. The ASCS racers won the battle, but the Pacific Northwest drivers won the war.

Consistency Award: Herrera (ASCS) and Thomas (midgets). "Hollywood" turned in back-to-back thirds, and Garrett had two fourth-place runs.

Hard Luck Award: Linder. Garen's weekend ended in a very scary opening lap flip in Friday's main event. He was unharmed, but his car was destroyed. He also tore up a lot of equipment in a rollover towards the end of the A-Main in the final night of Dirt Cup. Midget racer Ashley Thompson lost an engine in the early laps during Friday's third heat race, and didn't return Saturday.

Next race: My first and overdue trip to Skagit Speedway of the year for the Bob's Burgers and Brew Summer Nationals on July 28 and 29. Roger Crockett made the winning pass on Jason Solwold with four laps to go for a $10,000 payday in last year's event, completing the sweep. The outlaw tuners are the support class on the 28th, while the Northwest Focus Midgets compete on the 29th.

Jumping the Start: Fred Brownfield Classic presented by Little Creek Casino Resort 
The Lucas Oil ASCS Sprint Car Dirt Series presented by MAVTV Motorsports Network will be rolling in to Grays Harbor Raceway for the third annual Fred Brownfield Classic presented by Little Creek Casino Resort this Friday and Saturday.

Not only is Sam Hafertepe, Jr. the defending ASCS champion, he's also the defending Brownfield winner. Sam's also fresh off a convincing win in the 46th annual Jim Raper Memorial Dirt Cup presented by Skagit Casino Resort last Saturday. This is the second straight year he took the $15,000 top prize. Hafertepe leads the ASCS drivers in wins by far with nine, including winning the first five events. He holds a 143-point lead over former series champion Aaron Reutzel. Matt Covington, Johnny Herrera, Wayne Johnson, and Seth Bergman are separated by only 40 points for third through sixth in points.

The support class for both nights of the Brownfield are the Northwest Focus Midgets. Garrett Thomas has a slim three-point lead over defending GHR and series champion Nick Evans. Shane Smith, Nate Vaughn, and Jonathan Jorgenson round out the top five. Tristin Thomas was the big winner in the Brownfield last year, and he won the last two races at Skagit last Thursday and Friday during Dirt Cup.

Not only will the month of June end in style, July will start in style as well with a huge fan favorite with the third annual Fred Brownfield Classic presented by Little Creek Casino Resort.

Mother Nature prevails again 
I arrived at Grays Harbor Raceway a little after 2:00 this afternoon and I came across some light rain. It wasn't bad, but it started to come down harder as the day continued. It got worse when everyone came for the drivers meeting at 5:00, and the race was called an hour later.

The Washington Modified Tour had a great turnout, as there were 30 drivers that signed in. That would've been more than enough for a B-Main. I also counted 16 sprint cars and 14 street stocks.

My next race is back at GHR for the third annual Fred Brownfield Classic on June 30 and July 1, featuring the Lucas Oil ASCS Sprint Car Dirt Series presented by MAVTV Motorsports Network and the Northwest Focus Midgets.

Jumping the Start: Round #8 at Grays Harbor Raceway 
It's almost time for round number eight of '17 at Grays Harbor Raceway. It'll be held this Saturday night with three divisions on tap.

The Washington Modified Tour comes to GHR for their second visit of the year. Defending champion Kyler Moore won the last race at Skagit Speedway on May 27 and he's also the points leader. He holds a 28-point advantage over Scott Miller. Kevin Smith, Craig Moore, and Austin Kerrigan are third through fifth.

It's a close battle early on for the 360 sprint cars. Austen Wheatley won the first race of the year at GHR on May 6 and he has a slim six-point lead over Chase Goetz. Defending track champion Reece Goetz sits third in points with Cam Smith in fourth. Jay Cole and Chance Crum are tied for fifth. Just 22 points separate these six racers.

The Cut Rate Auto Parts street stocks have three different winners in three races so far. Scott Fritts, Jack Parshall, and Jason Tole have all made visits to Victory Lane. Parshall leads Tole by twelve points, with Tole in front of Fritts by one point. Ryen Haney and Shane Kerrigan are fourth and fifth in points, but they're in the hunt for the title as well.

Race fans will get a chance to see modifieds, sprint cars, and street stocks in five days. That's a recipe for yet another exciting night of racing at Grays Harbor Raceway.

Time to Review: 6/3 thoughts 
It was a new month, as we're already into June. Round number six at Grays Harbor Raceway was completed, and there was a lot of wild action in all four divisions that were competing.

The Cut Rate Auto Parts A-Main was scheduled for 25 laps with Ryen Haney and Brandon Babcock on the front row. Babcock had the lead as the field went into turn three on the opening lap, but fourth-place starter Austin Kerrigan was already on the attack. Austin made the pass stick on Brandon out of turn two on the second lap, and it happened just before Daryl Brumfield went spinning in turn two. The top spot changed hands again on lap number three, as Jason Tole took it from Austin at the flagstand. The race was marred by numerous stoppages, as it had seven yellow flags and two reds. The first red flag happened on a first-lap restart when Haney spun in turns one and two and was rear ended by Kirk McGinnis. Taylor Miller crashed into the wall and Brumfield plowed into an infield tire. The second red occurred with five to go, as A. Kerrigan and Scott Fritts made contact on the backstretch while racing for third. Austin nailed the wall head-on before getting drilled by Mike Mann, while Josh Anthony was also collected. Nobody was injured in the wrecks. The race was called complete with Tole winning over Jack Parshall, Fritts, Haney (after being involved in three accidents), and 13th-starting Rodger Perry.

The 25-lapper for the Pacific Hardtop Racing Association dwarf cars got off to a rocky start when Henry Corbin, II and Leo Ward touched in turns one and two, sending Ward into a huge flip. Ward was unhurt. Dylan Chrisman was the leader on the first lap, but he had fifth-place starter Andy Lemmons and ninth-starting Ryan Martinez tracking him down. Lemmons passed Chrisman out of turn four on the following lap, while Martinez followed suit at the stripe. Martinez had the lead momentarily out of turn four to complete lap three, but Lemmons took it back down the backstretch on the next lap. Martinez said enough was enough, and took the lead for good on lap five at the finish line. Henry Corbin, III made his way up to second on lap eight, as he went to the inside of Lemmons in turn two. A quick yellow flag came out with eleven laps in the books, as Mike Clark spun in turn two. Martinez, the defending PHRA champion, has been very dominant this season and won over Corbin, III. Doug McVae passed Lemmons in turn one with two laps to go to finish in the third spot. Lemmons was fourth and Rich Holbert rounded out the top five.

It was young gun versus veteran on the front row for the 25-lap A-Main for the Shipwreck Beads modifieds, with Tyler Walker on the pole and Tom Sweatman was alongside. Walker was on his way to lead the first lap, but he got loose in turn four and went spinning. Kyler Moore and A. Kerrigan had nowhere to go but into Walker's car. Kris Asche spun into an infield tire behind them and Tim Phillips also went for a spin in turn three. The night was over for Moore and A. Kerrigan. T. Sweatman took command and didn't look back. Zack Simpson was running in second, followed by Brian Harding, Tyson Blood, and Scott Miller. Blood and S. Miller came together in turns one and two on the third lap to bring out another yellow flag. Shane Kerrigan spun nearby and collected Phillips. Harding took second from Simpson on the restart, while Lane Zerbin was on a tear from 16th and he passed Del Schnitzer for fourth out of turn four to complete lap three. Another yellow came out on the fifth lap when Cory Sweatman and S. Kerrigan tangled in turn two. During the caution period, Simpson lost third when he took his car to the pits with no brakes. The race was slowed down again on the next lap for debris (a wheel cover) on the frontstretch. Zerbin had a great restart, as he got by Harding for second. Unfortunately, the evening ended for Zerbin when he spun in turn one with seven laps to go. T. Sweatman turned in another sensational performance and he took his #11 modified to his second win of the year, while Harding finished a career-best second in a modified. Asche recovered for third, with fellow Shelton racers Schnitzer and S. Miller fourth and fifth. With his victory, T. Sweatman is the points leader by just two markers over S. Miller.

The final main event was for the Summer Thunder Sprint Series. Trey Starks went for a spin on the opening lap, but the 30-lapper went green to checkered after that. Pole sitter Evan Margeson led the first lap, but outside front row starter Roger Crockett used the high line to take the lead out of turn four on the following lap. Crockett lived up to his nickname "The Rocket", as he started to lap slower cars by lap five. J.J. Hickle also went to the high side of Margeson in turn four on the ninth lap, and he made it work. Defending series champion and points leader Jason Solwold started eighth and methodically moved up through the field. He passed Robbie Price for fifth out of turn four on lap 15 before taking fourth from Chase Goetz at the same place on the following lap. Seconds later, Jason stole third from Margeson just after the flagstand. Solwold wasn't done, as he went to the inside of Hickle in turns one and two to get second on the 22nd lap. Solwold was coming up quickly on Crockett as the race wound down, but Crockett barely held on for the win by about four car lengths. Hickle came home third with Price fourth and Goetz fifth.

It was another thrilling night at GHR, so why don't we do a quick review on it? Let's do it now...

Teens and 20's, Part II: Grays Harbor Raceway continues to have very consistent car counts this season and last Saturday was another example. The STSS had 20 entries, while the street stock class and the PHRA had 19 drivers apiece. The modified division had 16 people signed in.

Father vs. Son: The father-and-son team of Shane and Austin Kerrigan were the only drivers to do double duty. They were alongside each other in row number two of the second street stock heat race. Shane went from third to first in one fell swoop on the second lap, as he passed Austin for second place in turn one before taking the lead from Haney out of turn two. Shane went on to win and he did a spin in turn one on his victory lap for extra style points. The Kerrigans shared the front row for the first modified heat, but Austin evened the score up by leading flag-to-flag.

Terrific Tole: Tole is looking to get back into the thick of things in the street stock class after winning the championship in 2013. Jason finished 11th in points in 2014, but improved to sixth in '15 despite going winless. He did even better in 2016 with two victories and ended up second in points. Thanks to his win last Saturday, Jason is just twelve points behind points leader and defending champion Parshall and one point ahead of Fritts for second. The top five drivers (Parshall, Tole, Fritts, Haney, and S. Kerrigan) are within 41 points of one another.

Ryan's on a Roll: Martinez has been red hot in the PHRA, as he has won four straight races. He won three consecutive times at Sunset Speedway (May 20, 27, and 28) before claiming last Saturday's race. Next up for the PHRA racers is a doubleheader at Cottage Grove Speedway Friday and Saturday. They'll be back at GHR on July 15, 28, and 29. The races on the 28th and 29th are part of the Shipwreck Beads Modified Nationals.

Five Alive: Wheatley continues to be at the top of his game in time trials this year, as he's now five-for-six. His time of 12.279 seconds was nearly a second quicker than his qualifying lap on May 20. 16 of the 19 racers who qualified had laps in the 12's.

Triple Threat: Doug Rutz had not one, not two, but three cars in last Saturday's race. Wheatley was in the #8R car with Chance Crum in the #8RC and Starks in the #8RX. Thank goodness some letters were placed on the wings, otherwise it would've been very confusing! Starks lost an engine in warm-ups and didn't get a qualifying lap in or run his heat race. Crum was the top finisher for the trio in ninth with Wheatley in tenth and Starks in 11th after starting dead last.

Roger and Roger Back Together: Crockett is the new driver of Roger Henderson's #7N machine, but he didn't say whether it was going to be a long-term deal. Crockett first drove for Henderson back in 1998 in the NARC/King of California Series, and reunited in '07 and '08. The first race of the year for Crockett in the #7N was over the Memorial Day weekend at Cottage Grove, where he won the $4,100-to-win Marvin Smith Memorial Grove Classic.

Number for the Weekend: 7...the number of street stocks that survived the shortened main event. There was a lot of carnage in this race and a number of cars left on the hook.

Hard Luck Award: A. Kerrigan. Austin left with two battered cars, as his street stock was destroyed with five laps to go and he was also involved in an opening-lap wreck in the modified main event.

"Never Say Die" Award: Asche. Kris came back from spinning on the first lap of the modified A-Main to collect a third-place finish in his first race in well over a year. The last time we've seen Kris was in the season finale at GHR in '15, which he won.

Next race: It looks like I won't be able to go up to Skagit Speedway June 22-24 for the 46th annual Jim Raper Memorial Dirt Cup presented by the Skagit Casino Resort because of work commitments. I'll be going back to GHR regardless for my next visit. Plan B is to come back next Saturday (June 17) for the Washington Modified Tour, 360 sprint cars, and Cut Rate Auto Parts street stocks. Plan C is the third annual Fred Brownfield Classic on June 30 and July 1.
