Northsound Racing's 7th Annual Award Banquet - Nov 1st!

Northsound Racing is pleased to invite you to our 7th Annual Awards Banquet. This year's event will be held at the 13th Avenue Pub & Eatery, 1233 164th Street SW in Lynnwood, WA on Thursday, November 1st at 7:00 PM.

This event will be broadcast live from 7:00 to 9:00 PM on FOXSPORTS 1380-KRKO Radio, and live streamed on www.northsoundracing.com. All of us at Northsound Racing would be honored with your attendance. It's our way of saying "Thank You" for all your support and assistance this season, because we couldn't do what we do without the cooperation of all the motorsports facilities, along with the touring groups, race teams, sponsors, and especially our listeners and race fans from all over the Pacific Northwest.

The Northsound Racing Awards Banquet honors racers, officials, track and touring series promoters, along with special awards for those not behind the wheel, but are definitely behind the scenes. We will also announce the new inductees into the Northsound Racing Hall of Fame for 2012.

We look forward to celebrating a fantastic 2012 season with all of you!

Northsound Racing returns to its regular time slot of 8:00 to 10:00 PM this Thursday evening for an aggressive show covering all the events concerning motorsports this weekend.

And with that, a few changes are in store for the night as well. First off, the shows co-host, Tom Glithero is taking a much deserved night off, and filling in for Tom will be Doug Pace. Doug has expressed interest in the past about wanting to do the show, and said he would be willing to drive all the way over from Spokane to help with the show in the studio, so that's exactly what he's going to do! Doug will now join Scott Ellsworth, Shane Biles, Kelly Hart, Maury Eskanazi, Jeff Shade, Jason Fraser and several others that have co-hosted the show in the past seven years.

Also, we announced last week that our time slot will change now that the Everett Aquasox season has started up. In the past, we've done the show from 6:00 to 6:45 on the Thursday nights that the Aquasox are playing. It's been frustrating to do it that way, because the heart of the season is coming up, and we lose a lot of momentum with doing such a short show. This season, we are going to start the show in "prime time", and broadcasting from 5:00 to 6:45 on Thursday nights. This should be the case for the majority of the season, as there will be some minor changes depending on where the team is playing at. The cool part is that we'll be able to provide more coverage to our listeners during the best part of the local racing season.

Another announcement was made on our last show concerning the Summer Shootout at Evergreen Speedway on June 30th. Northsound Racing will be broadcasting a two hour show from the event prior to the Aquasox pre-game show at 6:45. We would like to thank High Road Promotions for allowing us to participate in this huge event. More details to follow!

Lot's of people lined up for this Thursday's show. We will be getting live updates from night #1 of the Dirt Cup at Skagit Speedway. Ricky "The Kid" Dietz will be in the studio to get us jacked up for the 60 Minutes of FEAR race this Saturday night at Evergreen Speedway. Ricky is bringing "Dangerous" Cory Turner with him. Cory is one of the Figure 8 racers making the trek from Indy to race in the 60 Minutes of FEAR. We will also preview the upcoming Stanwood-Camano Island All American Soap Box Derby, and visiting with Daniel Moore as well.

Listen live on FOXSPORTS 1380-KRKO Radio, or online at www.northsoundracing.com this Thursday night from 800 to 10:00 PM. Make sure and let is know if you need some new Northsound Racing stickers for your race car. E-mail us at northsoundracing@hotmail.com, along with your name and mailing address, and we'll get them out to you right away!
