Auto racing resumes in Elma

With the season winding down and points races heating up, a weekly program is scheduled for tonight at Grays Harbor Raceway.

Competition will be in the 360 sprint car, hobby stock and the hornet classification.

The program scheduled for Grays Harbor Raceway on Sept. 22 has been canceled because of conflicts not only with East County activities but also with the American Sprint Car Series championships scheduled that night in Yakima. It will be replaced on the Elma schedule with a race on Oct. 6.
