Building a Facility

Volunteers Dig In!


In what can only be described as complete satisfaction, the new track for the I-5 QMC at the Grays Harbor Raceway in Elma, WA was officially opened on May 15th, 2004.  Racers and families from 3 of the 6 Region 9 clubs turned out for the celebration.  Also on hand were a great many friends, family, and County Officials to do the honor of cutting the ribbon.  The hi-lite of the event was having all three of the founding members of the club make an appearance to show their respect and admiration to the club.  It was a joyous and triumphant day for the members of the I-5 QMC.

With the support of over 80 businesses donating product, labor, and support - the club had a new beginning and a new place to call home.
