Don’t miss the Northwest racing season’s grand finale this weekend (Oct 7 – 9) – 3 Days of Racing Thrills!

Get ready to blend two favorite fall pastimes – motor racing and Oktoberfest – at Pacific Raceways this Saturday, October 8th. It’s all part of the 2nd Annual Pacific Raceways Invitational Road Race, which offers several flavors of thrilling racing action all weekend – along with some tasty beer and food!

  • Late Model/Large Sports Cars

Every category offers excitement, so you’ll want to show up every day.

Did we mention beer?

Saturday is OktoberFAST: to add some extra oomph to the racing, local award-winning brewer Four Horsemen Brewery will be pouring some of their finest brews. And as you would expect, there will be German-style bratwurst with sauerkraut and pretzels with beer cheese (made with Four Horsemen beer!) among the food offerings. The brews from Four Horsemen will include Posie Pilsner, Son of a Pumpkin Sour (made with sugar pumpkins from nearby Mosby Farms), Heemeyer Hefeweizen, and  Raspberry Cider Smash. A proud local institution, Four Horsemen is the first brewery to use Washington State-sourced ingredients exclusively.

Saturday car show & all-day fun

Once you’ve sampled the beer and tasted the , you’ll want to wander through the car show, where some worthy muscle cars, hot rods, and classics will be on display. The Emerald Cup, the region’s favorite vintage Formula 1 race, also takes place on Saturday.  Just so four-door cars aren’t feeling left out, the racing winds up with the Wild West Sedan Challenge. Once the engines turn off you can join the Saturday Evening Social in the big tent, which features dinner, prizes, and more. This is truly the big event of the season for motorsport lovers in the Northwest.

3 full days – don’t miss any of them!

Every day the on-track action begins at 9 a.m. and runs till 5 p.m. This event will be twice as big as last year’s, so Pacific Raceways is where to be this weekend. Come for the beer and brats, stay for the racing!
