    CALLING ALL Z’S!!!!! This year they will be celebrating 50 years of the Datsun/Nissan Z Car’s. There will be a car show in Downtown Spokane, Car Corral, & Parade Laps on the track. The Spokane Festival of Speed again gives us a three-day fix of vintage racing activities. Action starts Friday, June 7th with the Festival Test-N- Tune, followed by the Race Car Tour, a public-road run from the track to downtown Spokane’s beautiful Riverfront Park. There the Festival will host the very popular BruceHunt Vintage in the Park vintage racecar show and driver reception. Saturday and Sunday will have full racing schedules, with some of the races televised for later viewing on network TV. The Festival Race Party will be Saturday evening at the track. The SFOS is again sponsored by Porsche of Spokane in support of the Parkinson’s Resource Center.

    SPRING SPRINTS! The 2019 vintage racing season kicks off with three days at Pacific Raceways. Friday is a racers-only tune-up and noviceday; Saturday and Sunday will see two full days of racing. Saturday morning will see practice and qualifying sessions. Racing starts before noon and continues all day on Sunday. This is the first time since last September the racers have been on the track so look for lots of action throughout the day, from the smallest formula cars to ground pounding Can-Am cars. Gates open at 9:00 a.m. each day. Spectators have full infield and paddock access!
