Pacif­ic North­west His­torics Lead July Events

Mustangs-Cantrell-1[SOVREN] 1969 Boss 302 dri­ven by Tom Cantrell

The 2014 SOVREN Pacif­ic North­west His­torics run this week­end, July 4–6, start­ing off the month of July with a plen­ty of auto­mo­tive excite­ment. Just the thing to put you in the mood for Inde­pen­dence Day!

The week­end promis­es to be the vin­tage thrill of the year —  three days of vin­tage rac­ing at Pacif­ic Race­ways, in Kent, WA. Fri­day, July 4 sees a half day of rac­ing, Sat­ur­day and Sun­day each offer a full day of rac­ing for vin­tage sports and for­mu­la cars.

Ford’s leg­endary Mus­tang is the fea­tured mar­que this year and sev­er­al of the fastest road Mus­tangs in the North­west will be on track, test­ing them­selves against very fast Corvettes, Camaros, and oth­er mus­cle cars of the late 60’s. A full slate of races will fea­ture a wide range of sports and for­mu­la cars from the 50s right through the late 80s.    As a spe­cial guest, leg­endary oval, road, and off-road dri­ver Par­nel­li Jones will be hon­ored. He will make appear­ances and sign auto­graphs each day.

This is the 27th edi­tion of this very pop­u­lar event which ben­e­fits Seattle’s Children’s Hos­pi­tal. Tick­ets are avail­able at the gate or online at North­west historics.com.
