ALGER, Wash. - August 7, 2009 - Mini Sprints and Midgets will join the
Foothills Toyota Tundra Racing Series as special guests this Saturday at
Skagit Speedway. The first 5000 women attending the event are free part of
"Ladies Night out at the Races."

This is the second time Ford Focus powered Midgets take to the high-banks of
Skagit this season. Expected entries include Dirt Cup Midget Madness victor
Brandon Daniels, contenders Seth Hespe, Jonathan Jorgenson, along with last
year's event winner Allison Journey.

Mini Sprints from the 1200cc and 600cc ranks will converge on Skagit with
new setups and gearing changes to tackle the larger sized track. Division
leaders and main event winners Spud Allen, Kyle Johnson, Shaun Holtorf, and
Eric Drake are possible entries. Use to shorter sized circuits the event
will test both drivers and crews as they adapt to the faster speeds and
longer distances.

leads Colton Heath in the Associated Asphalt 410 division heading into
Saturday's event by just 12-points. Sportsman Sprints and Outlaw Hornets
will also take to the track. Events start at 7pm with opening ceremonies.
