SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENTS!
Celebrity Guest Driver:
We’re pleased to welcome decorated Iraq war veteran, author and TV celebrity from
ABC’s Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, Staff Sergeant Shilo Harris. Shilo’s Humvee
hit an IED while on patrol in Iraq in February of 2007. In that blast he lost his ears, part of
his nose, some fingers and over a third of the skin on his body. He also lost three of his
best friends. What followed was an agonizing road to recovery, which began with nearly
two months in a medically induced coma. During that time he experienced a version of hell
so terrifying, the memories still haunt him today. Harris shares his inspiring story in memoir,
Steel Will: My Journey Through Hell to Become the Man I was Meant to Be, which will be
available for sale & autographed at the track. Be sure to visit www.ShiloHarris.com. Thank
you to our own Joel Brown of Northwest Safety, who served with Shilo and made the
introduction. Yep, we’ll be putting “Shilo Dog” out on track with us!
Salute to Our Troops:
Lucky Dog is honored to recognize all branches of the military this Father’s Day
weekend! Working with local military and veteran organizations, we have invited area
soldiers and their families to come join us for a fun weekend of racing and to meet Shilo.
Your race will kick off on Saturday with a color guard and to make things even more
interesting, we have teams who are representing the various military branches:

#12 12th Man Racing
#145 Pyrotect Ghostriders

Based out of Battle Ground WA, Northwest Battle
Buddies provides professionally trained service
dogs for Veterans with PTSD…now those are some
very special lucky dogs! As the number of people
returning from war with disabilities grows, the
demand for these service dogs is exponential & our
donations are vital to this cause! Visit
www.northwestbattlebuddies.org & oh the video 
On THURSDAY, June 16th, the Portland BMW Club will be hosting an HPDE
and has invited us! Lucky Dog racer Greg Meythaler, member of #177 Finally
Racing, is also the Driving Chairman of the Portland BMW Club and has offered
instruction & coaching (all levels of skill) to the dawg community. This is both a
great opportunity to learn the track (hopefully in dry weather), to shake down your
car and as a novice or experienced driver, to hone your racecraft. Register at
www.motorsportreg.com/events/portland-bmw-club-june-16th-hpde-thursday-intlraceway-187307. Questions; email Greg at [email protected]

Track Walk:
People may walk or ride a bicycle on the track after hours with permission from
track management. Nothing motorized; no scooters, golf cars, race cars, passenger

BECAUSE THIS IS FATHER’S DAY WEEKEND, HOTEL OCCUPANCY IS HIGH.
We have noticed that the hotel appears to be sold-out online, but we encourage
you to call the hotel directly and keep checking back. We’ve also stayed at the
nearby Fairfield Inn by Marriott; great hotel but not totally trailer friendly.
