eKartingNews.com :: PROgression: Zach Zimmerly - Western Speedweek Report Zach Zimmerly (Photo: Brian Simonseth - H2H Photo) Zach Zimmerly Heading into the inaugural running of Western Speedweek with high hopes Vancouver, Washington's Zach Zimmerly proceeded to put together some of the finest moments in his young sprint car career by scoring his first ever 410 Golden State Challenge Series victory to open the week and eventually capped it all off with a strong runner up finish at the 39th Jim Raper Memorial Dirt Cup this past Saturday. The impressive week of action was also good enough to make Zimmerly the very first "Western Speedweek-Road to Dirt Cup" champion, in what is his sophomore season of sprint car racing behind the wheel of the McMillen Motorsports, Christian Stover Foundation, Level One Concrete No. 94 mount. After qualifying fourth quick to begin the night in the stout 33-car field, Zimmerly lined up sixth in the 30-lap main event and ran around that spot the first few laps, before making an entertaining charge through the pack by moving into fifth on lap seven and then fourth on lap 12. Western Speedweek then moved to the Southern Oregon Speedway in Medford, Oregon on Saturday June 12 and Cottage Grove Speedway on Monday June 14, where Zimmerly scored finishes of 10th and ninth respectively at the two tracks. A rainout was then seen on Tuesday June 15 in Lebanon, Oregon as it then set the stage for the prestigious 39th running of the three-night Jim Raper Memorial Dirt Cup, which kicked off on Thursday June 17 at the Skagit Speedway in Alger, Washington. Zimmerly opened the big event on Thursday by running second in his heat race and then started from the third row in the 30-lap prelim main event. Picking off cars one after another just around the halfway point Allard and Zimmerly soon found themselves sitting one-two in the order and with the laps winding down the youngster tried to make something happen with his mentor, but had to settle for a runner up finish for the second night in a row as "JA" crossed the checkered flag in first. It also gave Zimmerly the honor of being the youngest driver to ever lead the Dirt Cup standings going into the final night. Trying hard to find a way by for the top-spot things changed on lap 23 when a slower car blocked Zimmerly up high and allowed Stewart the inside line to steal the second position back. "We had a really good car and were real quick, but being on seven cylinders hurt us with how fast the track was and I was certainly hoping more traffic," said Zimmerly. The extremely consistent weekend at the Dirt Cup also wrapped up the 2010 Western Speedweek championship for Zimmerly and the No. 94 team. "The whole week was a lot of fun and to be the Western Speedweek champ is pretty awesome," he commented. "We definitely would have liked to win the Dirt Cup since we were in position to do so, but getting three second place finishes in a row isn't bad at all so we can't be too disappointed with how things went, because it was a great week for the whole team overall." Main event winner Stewart was also very humble afterwards giving Zimmerly a big hug, shaking the hands of team members and also said following the race, "I can't thank Zach enough for racing us clean. Zimmerly is also looking for additional sponsors to help support his racing endeavors and for anyone that would like to get on board please contact Zach at zachzimmerlyracing94@gmail.com For more news and info on 16-year-old Zach Zimmerly please visit http://www.zachzimmerly.com and don't forget to follow us on twitter at http://twitter.com/ZZR94 After opening Western Speedweek with his first career Golden State Challenge 410 Sprint Car Series victory at the Tribute to Gary Patterson on June 11, Vancouver, Washington's Zach Zimmerly wrapped up the long week of racing by tallying runner up finishes during all three-nights at the Jim Raper Memorial Dirt Cup.

For Zimmerly it was a bit of redemption at the sticky 3/8 mile clay oval after having a top-five run cut short at the track in April and also marked the second best GSC finish of his career, following a runner-up effort earlier in the month at Santa Maria. "We always seem to be fast here at Petaluma and it feels real good to get a top-three finish tonight," said Zimmerly, who won a California Sprint Car Civil War 360 Series event at the Petaluma Speedway last September. Zimmerly opened the rare Friday event at the Petaluma Speedway by timing in fifth fastest overall, before scoring a fourth place finish in the opening heat race to move the Christian Stover Foundation, Level One Concrete, McMillen Motorsports No. 94 into the dash, where he would run sixth to earn a third row starting spot in the feature. With the laps closing down Zimmerly continued to run a higher line than most and it paid off as he closed in on the leaders with just under five tours remaining. Zimmerly restarted at the tail of the field and would finish the final three-circuits in the ninth spot.
