Portland, Ore. Officials for Portland Speedway and the Raybestos Brakes Northwest Series, NASCAR Touring division has cancelled the first ever dirt test scheduled for Saturday, July 21 for the pavement late model touring series due to scheduling conflicts. The test will not be rescheduled at this time.

Portland Speedway is one of more than 90 tracks nationwide whose racers compete in the prestigious NASCAR Weekly Racing Series where local drivers can challenge for local, regional, and national championships. Current and past champions in NASCAR have called Portland Speedway home, including the legendary Hershel McGriff, Chuck Bown, and most recently Greg Biffle.

The Raybestos Brakes Northwest Series is one of nine NASCAR Touring Series that blanket the United States. NASCAR Touring brings special events to many NASCAR Weekly Racing Series tracks and some NASCAR superspeedways and road courses. NASCAR Touring Series can provide a competitor with an entire career, or they can provide valuable experience to competitors moving through the NASCAR ranks. Corporate sponsors make significant contributions to NASCAR Touring Series point funds. The sponsors include Anheuser-Busch, Featherlite Trailers, Gatorade, Goody's Headache Powders, O'Reilly Auto Parts, Raybestos Brakes, RE/MAX International, Inc., and R.J. Reynolds brand Winston.
