Greetings Cascade Sports Car Club
My name is Pam Stec. I was the president of the SCCBC in the early nineties after Westwood closed. During the years between the closure of Westwood in 1990 and the opening of the current River’s Edge Road Course at Mission your club was instrumental in our survival.
Cascade invited SCCBC to co-host events at PIR in order for us to retain our seat on the ICSCC board and they generously shared some of the profits of those events with us. Those funds were used to pave a curve in an existing drag strip return road at Mission Raceway Park. The resulting corners were named the Cascade Corners, turns 4-5-6.
Without the funds from Cascade we would not been able to host driver training courses and test days in 1992 & 1993. Those events, together with the help of Molson Indy Vancouver, and dozens of people and companies who participated in a fund raiser known as the Adopt a Block program, allowed us to purchase the concrete barriers we needed to line the track edges.
SCCBC held the Grand Opening for our road course on a blistering hot weekend in July of 1994, at a Conference event. This July 27-28 we are celebrating our 25th anniversary of Road Racing at Mission; the Mission 25. Unfortunately this is not a Conference race, but our CACC events are popular with SCCBC members and a good turnout is expected. As part of our celebrations we will be holding parade laps at noon on Saturday honoring our Founders, Block Parents, Past Executives and the Cascade Sports Car Club. We hope that your club will be able to send representatives to participate in the festivities.
Please don’t hesitate to contact me for further information. We look forward to hearing from you.
Yours in Motorsport
