Road racing drivers throughout the West Coast have a new annual race event to add to their schedule in 2022 with the 2nd Annual Pacific Raceways Invitational, presented by Michael’s Automotive Group, and benefiting the Heart Center at Seattle Children’s. This event on October 7-9, 2022, includes sprint races on Saturday and Sunday with a test and tune for drivers on Friday. Now in its second year, the Pacific Raceways Invitational Road Race was created to give racers from all sanctioning groups such as SCCA, Conference, SOVREN, Lucky Dog Racing League and other out-of-area associations a chance to compete together at one classic event. The Invitational gives a nod to the golden age of road racing in the 1960-70s and is likely to become a featured event on Pacific Raceways – The Place to Race – annual schedule.
In addition to an open practice day on Friday, October 7, 2022, Lucky Dog Racing League 'DAWGS' will now have a group of their own... a 45-Minute Sprint Enduro on Saturday. Lucky Dogs are also allowed to enter other events; see preliminary Event Schedule HERE.
The additional group will be added to Friday’s Test ‘n Tune and on Saturday a 15-minute qualifier just before lunch and a 45-Minute Sprint Enduro at the end of the day. We will follow the racing and prep rules for Lucky Dogs with exceptions addressed in the Supplemental Regulations. There will be no refueling or minor drivers. There will be a mandatory driver change in the Hot Pits during the Enduro.
DAWGS will be able to enter one of the other race groups but will be required to have their experience verified and approved by Don Kitch, Jr. at ProFormance Racing School (if drivers don't have a competition license). Don & Donna are huge supporters of LDRL & very supportive of our teams/drivers.

“We built the event with a nod to some of the big sports car races at Pacific Raceways in the past like the Northwest Grand Prix, United States Road Racing Championship races and Trans Am while soliciting input from SCCA Northwest Region, SOVREN, International Conference of Sports Car Clubs, and the Lucky Dog Racing League,” said John Ramsey, track general manager. “We expect to give fans an exciting event with cars from vintage to full production race cars as well as open wheeled formula cars.”
