SPOKANE, Washington – The pavement pounding action of the Inland Northwest Sprint Car Association (INSCA) will be taking to the ultra-fast half-mile speedway of Spokane Raceway Park (SRP) this Saturday night. This will mark the first ever race for this series at SRP and will be the first of two trips for the group this season.

Expected drivers for this weekend’s event include 2005 INSCA Rookie of the Year and current Championship Points Leader, Tony Berry, the series’ most recent main event winner, Justin Popple, the reigning INSCA Champion, Kevin Burck, multi-time modified winner, Frankie Voltz Jr. and 16-year old ROTY contender, Cole Tupling. Also, many-time pavement sprint car champion Rick Brown will be in attendance. Brown was victorious the only previous time that sprint cars ran at SRP this season with the NSRA series.

This past weekend, Spokane’s Popple picked up his first ever sprint car victory passing the race leader with two laps to go. “I cannot tell you how much that win meant to our team,” commented Popple. “This series is growing, and the cars that are here are very competitive; we certainly don’t take anything for granted. Our whole ACI Coatings, EER Contracting team is looking forward to heading up to the half mile this weekend to see if we can repeat.”

The INSCA series is very lucky to have two quality race facilities located in the same community, Spokane Raceway Park and Stateline Speedway - a fact that is not lost on the drivers, “Both of these facilities have been around forever and our series has had a great relationship with Stateline Speedway for the last few seasons,” said INSCA President, Ron Turner. “SRP is a staple in the Spokane racing community and we are thrilled to be able to take our brand of racing up there this weekend to support Rick Rice and his staff.”

This will be race number seven of the 10-race series sponsored by Mission Foods. As the season begins to wind down the championship points chase is heating up. “We are very fortunate to be in the position we are in right now with the season coming to a close,” said current leader Berry. “Our team has endured quite a bit this season and to be able to be where we’re at can be directly attributed to the hard work of my crew. This B&B Motorsports, ACRAnet, Sign Service, CDA Golf Carts, Duncan Marine team is young, but we couldn’t ask for a better group of racers to be competing with down the stretch.”

The Bud Gorder/ Roger Richards memorial event, brought to you by Rent-Rite will take place this Saturday night August 18th. Gates will open at 4 p.m. with time trials at 6 p.m. and racing at 7 p.m. For more information about the Inland Northwest Sprint Car Association call INSCA President Ron Turner at 509.921.1307
