  It's a tough road to this year's Super Dirt Cup at Skagit Speedway so far.  Last night at Chico, CA's Silver Dollar Speedway a chance of rain and , mostly, a tire shortage got the races cancelled.

  Tonight at Oregon's Cottage Grove Speedway heavy rains were the culprit. Sure hope the 3 day show at Skagit next Thursday, Friday and Saturday that pays $50,000 to win on the last night and is one of the West's longest running and biggest shows doesn't fall victim to the weather.  It's Washington though so who knows.  The travelers are probably starting to feel cursed.

Fantastic night 1 in the tune up. 
 

Sunshine led the whole way, but Corey Day made him work for it. That's a kid that's going to win a lot of races. Got a lead twice,

but couldn't hold on as Sunshine got back past him quickly. 
 

Track was great for the feature. Widened out and slicked off. Slide jobs plentiful late. I would expect Tanner Holmes to get an earful due to racing the leaders hard as he was being lapped. You were in last place young man. Show some respect.

wunderground shows sunny from Wednesday all through the Dirt Cup weekend, will be a thriller.  Congrats to Petah Murphy, Kevin rudeen for taking the reins there, going to be balls out for sure...


Ascot was the greatest of all time..

West Capital wasn't half bad either..

Life is good...

Today I rode to the store on a road.

Great race and a better car count than I thought was possible for 410's out west.

ILSPRINTS,  Thanks for noticing my typo on the thread title.  I  knew the difference between the two in  5th grade.

So strange that we have 8 $50k to win sprint events (give or take) and this one has crickets for hype. Knoxville hyped the hell out of their $1k per lap deal for the Nationals, first time I heard about it for this event was a Blake Anderson tweet. A guy could walk away with $100k on Sat if he leads all the laps and who knows about it?

Yeah, it's peculiar the lack of promotion Skagit is getting.  Been a big deal show out here for decades.  It's not a secret that the 410s are fading on the left coast with about the only consistent group of winged 410 cars being the NARC/ King of the West series.

Maybe the new owners aren't the promoters that Steve Beitler is/was.

Peter Murphy is running the track now.

You could see all the changes he has made to the place looks really nice.

Austin Wheatley took a hard hit last night hope all is well today bet he's sore.

Your comment on Steve Beitler shows how little you know about the man. It may take a few years but there are a good number of people who wouldn't even consider going to Skagit while he was there. With Peter Murphy and team in charge of the place the sky is the limit which is the way it should have been all along.

I've been going to Skagit regularly since shortly before Beitler took over and Dirt Cup seems to have always lacked any sort of national promotion/recognition.  It could be partly because it is so far out of the way from everything, I'm not really sure.  That being said, I have seen the track and 55 Promoitions social media accounts pumping the crap out of Dirt Cup for a number of months. Hopefully ownership keeps on their current path and eventually 410 racing in the PNW will be back in full swing.

The same Peter Murphy that promotes Hanford?  If so then Skagit is in very good hands.  Peter has been great for King's with a well prepped track, a very good show consistently and a great way with the racers.  Skagit and central valley California are entirely different worlds and I can't imagine the logistics involved with the distance between the two.

Used to be an semiregular visitor to Skagit back to Jim Raper's days but advanced age and life's other priorities have kept me away for several years now.  Don't know what threadkillller's beef is with Beitler but I liked the way he tried to do as much as possible in house and was under the impression he treated the racers well. Could be wrong about him but he was always pleasant  the times we chatted.

Last night's show sounds like it was a wild one and would be surprised if the NARC/ KW bunch doesn't have the Cup's winner in their midst.  Good one for TK last night.  Would like to be there but our Pro Stocks have a show to run Sunday at Petaluma.

I had no issue with Steve. The times I did deal with him, which was on a business level, there was nothing about the experience that left me feeling there was anything shady going on. It wasn't until after the fact that I learned some people had pretty strong feelings about him and I will say I was a bit surprised. You can't please everybody though and I am definitely old enough to understand that concept.
