Zamora Eyes 2017 Winner’s Circle

WENATCHEE, WA (April 22, 2017) The 2016 Northwest Super Late Model Series Inc. (NWSLMS) Jefferson Pitts Racing (JPR) Rookie of the Year driver, Brittney Zamora is looking up. Coming fresh off her JPR test session, Zamora has set her goal higher for this season; to take last year’s Rookie of the Year to the Winner’s Circle in 2017.

Zamora and the JPR K&N Pro Series West team, led by Jeff Jefferson, met at Yakima Speedway for the nearly 18-year-old to claim her Rookie of the Year prize, a K&N Pro Series test session. After a day at the Naches JPR shop to get fitted, Zamora was ready for her test at the track. After a quick shake down, minor adjustments, a perfect car was just what she got. A100-lap test session landed her as the fastest driver of that car at Yakima Speedway.

“It was a great experience and I loved being able to experience the different level of racing,” said Zamora. “We came away with excitement and confidence in knowing we have the ability to compete at that level.” The team is actively looking for sponsorship partners to secure the ride for the Spokane County Raceway K&N West race, giving her the opportunity to make her debut.

The NWSLMS kicks off its 2017 season this weekend at Wenatchee Valley Super Oval for the 3rd Annual Leonard Evans 150. A strong field of entrants is expected with drivers from the west coast to western Canada competing for the coveted first place prize monies, and for a bigger payday as well.

The top two finishers will be on the “Road to the Oxford 250 should they choose, with guaranteed starting positions in the Pro All Star Series (PASS) event on August 26-27 for the 44th Annual Oxford 250 at Oxford Plains Speedway in Maine. Three-time NWSLMS champion, Garrett Evans, has his eye on the one of those starting positions for the prestigious event. Not gaining the finish he would have liked in last year’s event, Evans has been gearing up for a rematch since then.

Also on tap for the weekend is the Streetstock Sizzler 75, Columbia River Legends and Bandoleros.
