Marysville, WA (May 15, 2009): On Saturday and Sunday May 23 & 24 the new 'Thunder in the Northwest' the iRacing.com American Speed Association Northwest Late Model Tour makes its only Montana visit in 2009.

Host Mission Valley Speedway in Polson, Montana is bringing the best Super Late Model Stock Car teams from the U.S Northwest and Canada together for the season's richest race. Over $40,000.00 in awards and bonuses has perked a lot of interest in the racing community for the 2nd annual 'Corey Wolfe Challenge'.

Gary Lewis (Snohomish, WA) winner of the 1st annual Cory Wolfe Challenge will be returning to defend the title and garner another $10,000.00 winner's check. Lewis has been very successful in the last three seasons when he races in Montana. Along with the 2008 win at Mission Valley Lewis has put together back to back wins of the Montana 200.

Lewis is the current point's leader for the 2009 iRacing.com ASA NWLMT. With a second and first in two races this season Lewis is on another strong roll heading into Montana.

The two day event over the Memorial Day weekend starts on Saturday May 23 with practice for the super late model traveling series followed by qualifying and qualifying heat races all setting the starting grid for Sunday's 150-lap feature on the high banked 3/8-mile oval.
