Great Northwest Promotions LLC, operators of Grays Harbor Raceway in Elma, Washington are pleased to announce that NASCAR Sprint Cup star Greg Biffle and long time friend and business partner Jerry Schram owner of Sunset Speedway in Banks, Oregon are now shareholders in Grays Harbor Raceway. With the addition of the new partners and the national exposure that will come with it, original shareholders Bud Brown and Dan Wade are excited to be able to take Grays Harbor Raceway to the next level.
General Manger George Wade sees it as a win, win situation all the way around, having someone with Greg’s stature involved at one of the nicest facilities in the country can do nothing but grow the facility. Couple that with the positive economic impact that we believe, will be mutually beneficial to the Raceway and the Community, as everyone involved will come out a winner.
