“(We wanted) to help Greg make this a successful premier event,” said the Hansons, who own Here 2 Wire Inc. – an electrician business in Lake Stevens, Wash. “It provides the opportunity to bring together some really great talent to one venue. What a great way to start the new racing season, seeing an awesome field of 410 sprints that includes quality drivers and race teams. It doesn’t get much better than that.”

The top five in overall points from the five races will also earn bonus money from a points fund.
“I’ve known Glen and Kim Hanson for many years,” Cocopah Speedway Director of Operations Greg Burgess said. “They are two of the most dedicated and loyal racing fans I’ve been around. We are very grateful for their support and help in building the Winter Heat Sprint Car Showdown.”
