After leaving Montana, the GWR team had a few days off and made the most of it…some sight-seeing, some fly fishing and celebrating Greg’s birthday. But then it was back to work as the w20 team, along with the World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series headed Northwest to Alger, Washington and Skagit Speedway for the Outlaw Energy Showdown.
Greg would qualify seventeenth on Night 1 of this doubleheader on this 3/10th mile oval. He would finish fifth in his 10-lap, heat race transferring into the evening’s main event. Greg would start fourteenth in the 30-lap, A-Main. He moved past eight cars on a very tight track and came home in sixth, earning the KSE Hard Charger Award.
“A sixth place finish…this was a solid night for us…it always feels good when you get a top ten. I want to thank Shannon (Wheatley) for helping us out tonight,” shared Greg. “I really enjoy coming up this direction. This is home for Zach (Zach Holloway, one of Greg’s former crew members) and it’s great to see his family when we are up this way. We look forward to coming back tomorrow night.”
The Hercules Tire, DNC Hydraulics, Ohio Logistics, All Star Plumbing, Gear Alloy Wheels, Bedford Valley Petroleum, Weikel Sportswear backed w20 team returns back to action with The World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series on Saturday, September 2 for the conclusion of the Outlaw Energy Showdown at Skagit Speedway in Alger, Washington.
