The Scouting Report
Evergreen Speedway rumbles into the 2014 season with a full slate of rubber-burning races. Both the 3/8-mile oval and the figure-eight track will get a whiff of pine tree air fresheners and a taste of exhaust on April 5 in a showcase of street stocks, mini stocks, and stingers. The Mark Galloway 150 Shootout kicks up dust on May 24, and a fireworks show fills the air on May 25 after a night of high-RPM racing.
Calling Evergreen Speedway a “racetrack” would be a misnomer, since it’s more than just one track. The nearly 3/4 mile track is the biggest and fastest short track west of the Mississippi. Six separate circuits in total fill the stadium, including a 3/8-mile paved oval, a 1/8-mile drag strip, and an infamous figure-eight. The diversity of the layout led racing legend David Pearson to nickname Evergreen the “Super Speedway of the West,” a name that has stuck for over 30 years. Along with hosting professional stock-car races during the Whelen All-American Series, the track often hosts specialty events such as drifting competitions and rallies to see which monster truck has the most fuel-efficient tire pressure.
