NHRA officials have announced the addition of Spokane County Raceway to the NHRA Northwest Division Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series schedule. The Northwest Thunderfest event, scheduled for July 29-Aug. 1, will be the third in the series, taking the number of events to six in the division and 40 in the series.
Spokane County Raceway came onboard as an NHRA member track last year and hosted its first Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series event, the winners of which were Shawn Cowie, Top Alcohol Dragster; Doug Lambeck, Comp; Jody Lang, Super Stock; and Greg Kielman, Stock. All four drivers won the NHRA Northwest Division Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series championship last year in their classes.
The track has also scheduled the Nostalgia Nitro Funny Car class along with exhibition jet cars to run Friday and Saturday nights. Lucas Oil racers will be vying for points toward national and divisional championships. Spokane County Raceway is at 750 N. Hayford Road in Airway Heights, Wash.
