MOUNTAIN HOME, Idaho – The King of the Wing Series has announced the dates for its Northwest tour through Idaho and Washington.
The events will be held on July 29 through Aug. 1. The Northwest dates return to mid-summer after being held in mid-September the last few seasons.
The first race of the Northwest swing will be the 40-lap Pink Lady Classic on Wednesday, July 29 at the the quarter-mile Meridian Speedway. This year’s single night event will be part of the speedways’ mid-summer King of the Wing Swing.
“It’s always great to get Meridian back on the schedule, fans are some the most dedicated sprint car fans in the country,” said Chuck Handley, King of the Wing Race Director.
“We are excited to provide a mid-week event of this caliber for our fans,” said Adam Nelson, Meridian Speedway General Manager.
Following a travel day on July 30, the tour invaded Yakima (Wash.) Speedway for a 30-lap feature on July 31. This will be the first visit to the Yakima half-mile for the King of the Wing Series.
The series will complete the northwest tour with the Rory Price Memorial at Evergreen Speedway’s three-eighths-mile oval in Monroe, Wash. The series last competed at Evergreen Speedway in 2016.
The Rory Price Memorial will be co-sanctioned, with the Granite Series and Northweset Sprintcar Racing Ass’n joining the King of the Wing Series, with each series running for their own respective points.
