YAKIMA, Wash. (June 22, 2013)-Buck Noel Jr., a regular at Yakima Speedway for many seasons in the Sportsman division before making the jump to the West Coast Street Series where he leads the Rookie of the Year standings, returned to his hometrack and made quite a statement in front of the capacity crowd as he stormed to victory.
Noel posted the top qualifying speed in time trials then ran second to Morgan Morrison prior to his dominant performance in the main event. The trophy dash roles were reversed in the main event as Noel motored through the front of the packpassing several cars, including Morrison, to capture the victory.

Josh Aquirre posted fast time for the evening with Tidrick earning the win in the A-Trophy Dash and Donnie Stevens bringing home the win in the B-Trophy Dash.
Mike Valcich had one of the strongest Mini-Stock's of the night as he set a new track qualifying record in time trials then picked up the win in the A-Trophy Dash.
