A shout out to Chris Green, a Central Welding Sponsored driver in Skagit Speedway’s 3-day annual Sprint Car “Dirt Cup” series last weekend! Chris drove #75 in the “Dirt Cup” held in Bellingham, WA, June 24, 25, 26, 2021. There were 63 Sprint Cars pre-entered for the race.
Chris was 14 when he joined the team for the North American Eagle team, a project attempting to break the landspeed record. Now 27, Chris has earned his own time on the track. The car is painted with the Jessi Combs Foundation logo and her signature Lincoln Welders red poke-a-dot livery. The foundation was created in memory of Jessi’s contribution as driver for the North American Eagle. At the end, Chris was in charge of packing the parachutes and running the M32-60B turbine powered start cart, responsibilities he inherited from two older teammates who could no longer continue.
Chris is a lifetime racer, starting out with BMX bikes, moto and super cross and the last three years driving a Midget race car.
Good luck, Chris, in the 2021racing season. And, thanks to Keith Zanghi from the landspeed.com team for sharing the photo and the story!
