Kyler Barraza made his return to racing at Cottage Grove Speedway regularly this year after spending the last three seasons exclusively at Coos Bay Speedway on the coast and also Southern Oregon Speedway. He pulled off an amazing win on June 13th in the family owned Barraza Motorsports/Oregon Tool & Supply/Hedge Carter Gutter Service #87 Maxim. The Roseburg driver also has an additional top five finish, a third, at Southern Oregon Speedway on April 18th.

“It's been a good year so far we hadn't ran Cottage Grove really since 2009,” commented Barraza, “it's been very enjoyable to be around all my friends up there.”

Kyler has competed against the Western Sprint Tour twice both of which were at Cottage Grove. His best finish was tenth on April 24th. This will be the first time he will make the whole entire Speedweek Northwest and has experience in one form or the other at all of the venues that the Western Sprint Tour will visit. At Coos Bay Speedway he is a three-time champion in the Sprint Cars and also managed to win the title for the Southern Oregon Sprint Tour the two seasons that it existed.

“The goal is to make all the main events and take it one race at a time,” he continued, “if we could make all six shows and make the main every night and finish would be like a win for us.”

In addition to racing he will also be helping out his lovely fiancee, Alysha Moore, as she will participate in several rodeos with the Northwest Pro Rodeo Association before, during, and after Speedweek Northwest. They will be at the Tillamook County Rodeo on Saturday June 27th, the Vancouver Rodeo on Friday July 3rd, the Yoncalla Rodeo on Independence Day, and finally the La Pine Frontier Days Rodeo on Sunday the 5th.

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.
