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.
