2023 Season Review - It's Snowball Derby Time

Updated: Oct 11, 2023

With the 2023 season coming to a close, we wanted to have a quick review before focusing on the Snowball Derby.

This year was all about growth and making an impact in our community. The team did an amazing job as usual. We had more wins and podiums than ever before. We grew as a team and accomplished the things that we set out to do. Moving forward we aim to keep the momentum going all the way to Pensacola, Florida.

Northwest Super Late Model Series Champion

With our 4 wins we were assured the Championship a few weeks ago after the finish at Wenatchee. The NWSLMS is the premier SLM series in the Northwest Region and so this was always a goal of ours. Thank you to everyone who works hard to contribute to "The Tour"!

Thank you Tom Roberts and the KDDP

We really appreciate all of your support this year. The KDDP program has been a blessing to us and we are grateful for your support and guidance. We are currently very close in top in the list and looking forward for the second annual results announcement. The program finishes up in November so we will know soon where we finished.

Snowball Derby Support Kits

With 7 weeks to go there is still much to do. You can help support your team and come along for the ride. So be on the look out for this year's HPR Snowball Derby Support Kits, which will be announced soon.

2022 was a learning experience. We had an undersized motor but won't be making that mistake again. We will be bringing an excellent program to Pensacola. Last year the loyal HPR fans helped to raise $2200! When you are taking a team to Pensacola, FL, it is quite the expense. So all help is good.

  • The Vanessa Beehan Crisis Nursery

  • Coats for Kids

  • Habitat for Humanity
