The arrival of summer in the Pacific Northwest coincides with Evergreen Speedway’s first tentpole event of the season: the Mark Galloway Shootout.
Dubbed “the Superspeedway of the West” by late NASCAR champion David Pearson, Evergreen Speedway boasts a proud history that dates back to its grand opening in 1954. The track hosted six NASCAR Camping World Truck Series events from 1995-00 while also serving as a recurring stop for the NASCAR West and Northwest Series.

In the brief history of this event, the only driver who has multiple wins in the event is six-time track champion Naima Lang.
The inaugural running of the Mark Galloway Shootout back in 2011 saw Lang take home a checkered flag, but it would take another decade before Lang finally added a second victory in the race to his resume. Lang’s win in 2021 also marked the official return of the Shootout after it was canceled in 2020 amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
Outside of Lang, numerous accomplished short track competitors have visited Victory Lane in the Mark Galloway Shootout. Tyler Tanner, who has made 14 career Truck Series starts, won the race in 2014. Former West series competitor Gracin Raz claimed a victory back in 2019.
The battle is expected to be intense when the green flag flies on Saturday, but everyone will be chasing Lang as he goes for his third victory in the race.
