Coos Bay, Oregon- Speedweek Northwest would head to Coos Bay Speedway on Wednesday, July 6th for the fourth race of the 2016 schedule. A total of nineteen cars would make the trip from Oregon, Washington, and California as well as the Canadian provinces of British Columbia and Alberta and also the Southland region of New Zealand.

In the main event, Justyn Cox would take the lead but a red flag incident would bring about a complete restart. On the second attempt, it would again be Cox with the top spot. The Clarksburg, California native would set a torrid pace.

Cox managed to decisively handle the slower traffic and did not get held up by them. It allowed him to build a sizeable lead. A late race caution would bunch the field up one last time but Cox stayed out in front for the win. It would mark Cox’s second career Speedweek Northwest victory and he became the third different winner in four races.

Quilcene, Washington’s J.J. Hickle would be second followed by Jake Wheeler, of Central Point, in third. The rest of the top five included fourth finishing Trey Starks, out of Puyallup, Washington and driving for car owners Doug and Kathy Rutz, while fifth went to Steven Tiner of Visalia, California.

J.J. Hickle was fast time of the night during the evening’s time trials. Heat race were won by Trey Starks, Justyn Cox, and Jake Wheeler. The winner of the trophy dash was Justyn Cox which put him on the pole for the main event.

Speedweek Northwest takes Thursday, July 7th off before they return to action on Friday the 8th at Siskiyou Motor Speedway in Yreka, California. It marks the one and only race of the schedule that takes Speedweek into the Golden State. For the latest news on Speedweek Northwest visit
