Two-time NSCS champ to race in Roseburg
It’s been quite a wait for local race car driver Howard Ford to get a complete race in.
Hopefully, that will all end on Saturday if the weather cooperates.
Normally starting his racing season in April, Ford is hoping to
complete his first race of the year on Saturday at the NASCAR Toyota
Bi-Mart-150 at the Douglas County Fairgrounds complex in Roseburg, Ore.
For two straight years Ford has won the North State Challenge Racing
Series and has carved a niche as an elite driver in the region.
His previous two races have been cancelled due to rain this year.

Duncan, a senior, has qualified for the Meet of Champions in the pole vault all four years of his high school career. Last year he placed second in Berkeley and went on to state.
Junior Kyle Eggan has steadily improved as the year has gone on and looks to earn his first state berth in the shot put.
