NASCAR competitors ready for Roseburg race

ROSEBURG, Ore. - NASCAR comes to Roseburg Saturday night June 5th, and drivers and promoters were at the track Friday. Preparing for the event. They were doing some test laps, checking out their cars to make sure they are operating properly, and to just get familiar with the one-third mile Douglas County Speedway track.

Chris Walker with NASCAR Marketing said most of the major tracks are on the east coast, so races like the one in Roseburg are vital to the sport.

"NASCAR wants to be on the west coast. It is a very important market for them to have a NASCAR presence in the state of Oregon. It's not only huge for NASCAR, but the citizens and residents of the state of Oregon," said Walker.
