Bremerton Made History

We’re a little late in getting this posted but in case you missed it last week, NASCAR has a history here in Kitsap County. The sport’s one and only top-tier race ever in Washington was at the Bremerton Airport site on Aug. 4, 1957.The winner was Parnelli Jones, whose memory of the race is not vivid. Nor are the memories of those who attended.

Depending on what happens in 2007, the date could become significant again. If there’s hope for a speedway there could be some events marking the 50th anniversary of that race, according to one ISC official.

If there isn’t hope for a track, well then this might be the most publicity that one race ever gets.
