17 Year Old, Jessica Dana is Competing in the “Biggest Race on the West Coast”
Monroe, Wash. — (June 29th - 30th, 2012) Washington’s 17 year old racing sensation, is announcing that she will be competing in the Nascar Super Late Model, 200 lap, Summer Showdown at Evergreen Speedway.
With just 14 races under her belt, the Super Speedway of the West will be Jessica’s first experience with speeds approaching 150 mph and first ever experience on the 5/8 mile track.
“I loved the track and the people at Evergreen,” said Jessica, after her first ever appearance this year at Evergreen, on the 3/8 mile track. Jessica and fellow teenage female racer Molly Helmuth were pole and outside pole respectively on the second main event of the night, to the crowd’s delight. For the first time in the history of Evergreen Speedway, two women competed in the region’s top class.
Jessica’s father and JDR’s team manager, Troy Dana said “We are excited about the Summer Show Down. Doug Hobbs and his team at Evergreen Speedway put on a great race. Our expectations are fairly modest at this point, given the caliber of the teams who have already signed up for the event. Our biggest concern is for safety given the increased speed, the 40 mile per hour Karts, from a year ago, were a lot less stressful,” (Troy Dana, 2012).
Doug Hobbs, owner of High Road Promotions and Evergreen Speedway states, "We are thrilled about Speed-week, June 25th to June 30th. This will be the largest race on the West Coast. We are thrilled to have tour, track and regional Champions competing with young stars like Jessica Dana, Garret Archer, Braeden Havens and Molly Helmuth. This event will truly showcase the present and future of our sport," (Doug Hobbs, 2012).
Jessica’s racing season would not be possible without great sponsors, such as OBEE Credit Union, Dana Commercial, Pints and Quarts, Rivers Edge, Advocare, Print Northwest, 94.5 Roxy, Fusion Graphix, Putnam Lieb, and Knight Fire. 2012 sponsorships are still available.
Special thanks to Citris Designs, D&D Dyno Engineering, and the Pacific Cascade Mustang Club for all their support.
