Marysville, WA (April 28, 2009): This Saturday May 2 the
American Speed Association Northwest Late Model Tour starts a new era in
Super Late Model Stock Car racing. Wenatchee Valley's Super Oval, East
Wenatchee, Wash. will host the first race of the season for the new
traveling series. The superstars of northwest racing are set for the debut. 

Two series have merged to become the one and only premier racing series in
the northwest. Race one for the series had been delayed with a rain-out of
the original scheduled opener at Evergreen Speedway in March. Drivers, teams
and officials are more than eager to get the 10-race season started. Many of
the teams will start their chase for the distinction of being the first ever
champion of the new series.

WVSO has always proven to be a challenge over the years. Both the former
Late Model Challenge Series and Northwest Tour have held many races at the
super fast high banked .25-mile oval. Most iRacing ASA Northwest Late Model
Tour drivers and teams are familiar with the complexities of this fine

A Friday May 1 practice session will get the season underway. The season
starts in earnest on Saturday afternoon with practice, qualifying and a
125-lap feature. 

Qualifying begins at 6:00pm on May 2 for the ASA NWLMT plus the Pro4
Alliance and local Thunder Car division. Racing will follow at 7:00pm.
