Evergreen Speedway is an automobile racetrack located within the confines of the Evergreen State Fairgrounds in Monroe, Washington. The stadium can accommodate up to 7500 spectators in the covered grandstand and an additional 7500 in the uncovered modular grandstands.[1] The layout of the track is unique in that it incorporates an oversized 5/8-mile paved outer oval, a 3/8-mile paved inner oval, a 1/5-mile paved inner oval, a 1/8-mile dragstrip, and the #2 ranked figure-eight track in the United States. The track is the only sanctioned NASCAR track in Washington State. Evergreen Speedway hosts Formula D the third weekend in July every year. Along with NASCAR, the multi-purpose track can be configured to road courses with sanctioned SCCA, USAC, ASA and NSRA events. Under new ownership for the 2011 season and beyond, Evergreen Speedway has become a NASCAR Top Ten Short Track in North America from 2012 though 2016.

History

Originally an unpaved horse track, in 1954 Jimmie Collier convinced Snohomish County officials to allow him to convert the track for use in racing his Ford Model T roadster. The track was paved in the early 1960s and in 1967 the original bleachers were demolished and the current grandstands built.[2]

Through the years the track played host to a wide variety of racing events including Sprint Cars, Roadsters, Midgets, Figure Eights, Foreign Stock, Modified, Hobby Stocks, Jalopies, Limited Sportsmen, Demolition, Grand National, Winston West, NASCAR Northwest Tour, Super Stocks, Mini Stocks, Stinger-8, Hornets and Bombers. Evergreen Speedway also hosted the "500," the richest and most prestigious race in the west.[3]

The NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series ran an event at Evergreen Speedway once per year from 1995 to 2000.[3]

High Road Promotions LLC owner Douglas Hobbs won the Snohomish County bid to operate Evergreen Speedway until 2036. The 25-year contract, beginning in March 2011, ensures NASCAR will remain in the state of Washington. As the only NASCAR track in Washington state, Evergreen Speedway was the first West Coast facility to feature a 500 lap NASCAR event. Douglas Hobbs has extensive automobile, world stage events management, such as four Olympic Games and regional and NASCAR experience, assisting Evergreen Speedway landing the Craftsman Truck Series to Evergreen Speedway.

Evergreen Speedway today

Today Evergreen Speedway hosts a number of local as well as regional racing series'. The NASCAR Whelen All American Series runs on a weekly basis.

2012 marked the addition of the Richard Petty Driving Experience.[5][6] New to Evergreen Speedway is a state of the art Motocross Track and beginners MX track for riders 65cc and under.[7][8] Also new to Evergreen is a new ATV race facility.[9]

Evergreen Speedway is the premiere "Short Track" on the West Coast, in addition to being named the #2 Figure 8 track in America. Being one of 11 NASCAR tracks in the USA to host the Whelen All American and K&N Pro Series West makes Evergreen Speedway one of America's premier short circle tracks.

Evergreen Speedway is one of the stops of the Formula Drift professional drift series.[10]

Along with the professional drift series, Evergreen Speedway is also the location for the Evergreen Drift ProAm series. Evergreen Drift is the Northwest series that feeds drivers into the Pro ranks of FD. Through Evergreen Drift, Evergreen Speedway plays host to not only the series events but also many open drift and drift school events.[11]
