Even though he will not make the entire Speedweek Northwest it should still be fun to watch Seth Nunes shred the clay. The Medford motorist is having his best year yet after capturing his first career victory at Southern Oregon Speedway on April 18th. He also has posted four top five finishes over the course of 2015. Although he did experience a major crash on the final night of Cottage Grove Speedway's Marvin Smith Memorial Grove Classic, the team seems to be back in the correct direction.

“We have some good momentum now,” commented Nunes, “first time we brought this new car out we ran fourth (at CGS on June 13th). We're hoping for some good runs and put some solid laps together.”

The pilot of the Napa Auto Parts/Lucas Oil Products/Central Point Electric/Rodgers Racing Engines #5N Zeitler will only be in attendance for the Monday June 29th event at Southern Oregon and the two final nights at Cottage Grove. In Western Sprint Tour competition Nunes has a second at Cottage Grove on April 24th and a seventh at Southern Oregon on May 23rd.

“I'm hoping to get top fives every night,” he continued, “it'll be very nice to get some good consistent runs.”

The Western Sprint Tour sanctioned Speedweek Northwest begins at Yreka, California's Siskiyou Motor Speedway on Sunday June 28th and will conclude with the $5000.00 to win finale at Cottage Grove Speedway on Saturday July 4th. The best 360 Sprint drivers in the Western United States will race six events in seven nights at some of the best tracks in the country.

In the seventeen years Speedweek Northwest there have been ten different champions. Steve Kent and Roger Crockett are tied with four apiece while Brent Kaeding has two. Seven drivers have won the entire kit and caboodle just once which is a very impressive list of winners. That list includes Brad Furr, Jesse Hockett, Bud Kaeding, Kyle Larson, Shane Stewart, Mitch Olson, and in 2014 Kyle Hirst.

The Western Sprint Tour is the Pacific Northwest region's most premier touring 360 Sprint car series. Visiting some of the nation's best facilities it is a series that offers some of the best racing you can find anywhere around.
