Yorks to race in longest running sports car endurance race west of the Mississippi River.
Evan – and his dad, Kevin York – will return to Portland International Raceway with West Coast Touring Cars (WCTC) for the 38th Annual Six Hours Of The Cascades.
The famed “Cascade Enduro” – the longest running sports car racing endurance event west of the Missippippi. This year the event actually features two endurance races at Portland International Raceway; a two-hour event (NORTHWEST MINI ENDURO SERIES FINALE) running from 11:30 am – 1:30 pm , and a six-hour event (38th ANNUAL 6 HOURS OF THE CASCADES) beginning at 3:00 pm and ending under the lights at 9:00 pm.
“Our participation in this event – and successful completion of it – will be an exciting way to continue the ongoing relationship with our friends at the West Coast Touring Cars (WCTC) team.” Evan’s dad, Kevin remarked, “I look forward to having Evan as my sole co-driver this year. We know the team, and sponsor – Car Tender & GoEnzo.com – have worked very hard to continue the development of their BMW PRO3 car. We’re counting on it being both reliable and quick. Our goal will be an E2 class win this year to go along with the P3 class win I enjoyed in 2004 and the E2 podium finish that Evan and I shared with WCTC teammates in 2011.”
Presented by the Cascade Sports Car Club, the race will be the 38th annual edition of the famed endurance race and sanctioned by the International Conference of Sports Car Clubs (ICSCC).
