ISCS Week of Speed a resounding success….

 

 

 

In 2011 the ISCS was started as a 360 Traveling Sprint car series in the Northwest mostly in the state of Oregon……and was around for just two years and then came back for a cameo appearance in 2016 with a handful of races…..Then in 2018 Brian Crockett and Company brought it back as the first that I could find anywhere traveling Limited Sprint Series with 14 events….One of the most intriguing things I noticed back in January when the Schedule came out was the Week of Speed set up like the old Northern Sprint Tour used to run their speedweek….Start in Oregon and end in Washington at Grays Harbor Raceway…..I have been to almost all the 360 Speedweek races since it started in 1998….its one of the best weeks of the year period…..I was looking forward to going to all of the ISCS Week of Speed, but had blimp in the radar with my grandson being in the hospital…but PJ at DirtOval TV hooked me up and watched every race…..after the first of its kind I think beyond a doubt it was a resounding success….with an average car count of 29 and on three occasions there were 30 or more ……the fans, promoters and drivers got to see what this was and will become ….great racing with strong drivers, putting on great racing night after night….oh throw in the fact the Dwarf Association brought over 30 cars and on the last two nights over 40 cars every night you got over 60 cars in two classes on all 6 nights….it was simply awesome…You had a 16 year-old win two races and the overall Week of Speed Champion in Tyler Thompson….Jake Helsel from Washington winning twice himself….and then in a twist of Irony…..Kyle Miller driving the #17 that is usually driven by Colby Carter and owned by Hedge Carter would win Wednesday at Willamette and on the last lap Miller and the leader Shane Forte would touch and it would send Forte barrel flipping into the turn three wall destroying his car….On the next night with no car to drive Hedge put Forte in the #17 and he went out and won…..talk about a storybook ending….Outstanding job by Hedge to put two good drivers in his car along with putting Jake Waddell in his personal #71 and Jake put it into the main…..it was great week with 6 races in a row at five different tracks….there is already talk of the Dwarfs wanting to be a part of next years Week of Speed…..From what I saw and heard from the drivers I expect there will be many more wanting to do this next year….it was good cars with good drivers putting on a show all week long….with the Modified Speedweek, the 360 Western Sprint Tour Speedweek and now the ISCS Week of Speed we in the Northwest are lucky and can enjoy some of the best racing in the country with these three events….add in the ISCS Series and the Summer Thunder Sprint Series its great racing up in the beautiful northwest corner of the US……I personally am proud that I’m one of the sponsors of the series as I really didn’t know what to expect, but have been pleasantly surprised by the car counts and quality racing this series brings….its what the future is showing us and you either jump aboard or not….I’m in with both feet and look forward to what 2019 brings to the ISCS Series…….Great job to Brian, Heather and all those involved in conceiving the idea and making it work….
