Getting Involved


With more than 5,000 spectators attending our event annually, in addition to the hundreds of drivers, crew and volunteers being a vendor at the PNW Historics is an excellent way to showcase your company and your products and/or services on Vendor Row.  Our vendor spaces are leased for the entire event weekend, with sizes ranging from 10′ x 10′ up to just about any imaginable size!  We can provide tent set-ups or simply space only based on your needs.  Our vendors come back year after year because our vendor services are far above those of other local events.  Vendor row is also prime location for marketing your business because in order to reach concession stands, beer gardens, the paddock, pace cars, and several prime vantage points to watch the racing spectators and VIPs must pass through vendor row, affording you the opportunity to introduce yourself to everyone!  To reserve your vendor space please complete our 2017 Vendor Registration.

Our Vendor Coordinator for this year’s race is Erica Lange. Your participation as a vendor on “Vendor Row” is very important to our event and we would enjoy having you with us this year! Vendor Row is a popular and integral part of our event. With the help of our vendors, the SOVREN Guild raises money for uncompensated care at Seattle Children’s. In this economical time our contributions to uncompensated care are needed more than ever and with your help we can continue to make a significant difference to families that don’t have the financial resources to cover their children’s health care! Please fill out the registration form and return it to the addresses listed on the bottom of the form.

Our event is Friday, Saturday, Sunday. Set up can start on Thursday. All vendors must be set up and ready for spectators on Friday at 8:30 AM, when our gates open to the public. Registration packets are handed out when you come to set up before the event. Vendors are asked to stay until Sunday after the last race which is usually 4:30 PM.

Please note the vendor registration deadline is June 1.

Checkered Flag Club

In 1999, the Children’s Checkered Flag Club was created to encourage racing enthusiasts and hospital supporters to make a tax-deductible gift of $1,000 or more to Seattle Children’s. Thanks to the generous Checkered Flag Club donors, in 2014 we raised more than $34,000. The Children’s Checkered Flag Club Champions (donations of $10,000 or more) raised more than $140,000. Funds from the Checkered Flag Clubs are direct donations to Seattle Children’s.

In-Kind Donations

The Pacific Northwest Historics weekend has become famous not only for its racing, but also because of its hospitality. In-kind donations of food, supplies, party equipment, as well as services such as graphic design, printing, advertising, and cellular phones have been donated to the event each year. These donations contribute to the reduction of overhead costs and allow the Guild to make a larger donation to Seattle Children’s

 Car Corral

Local car clubs and individual car owners all jump at the opportunity to participate in our annual car corral.  With about 250 parking spaces available, our car corral sells out annually.  Located just inside the entrance gates, the car corral is the first place spectators visit when they arrive.  Located trackside, along the straightaway car corral participants love this prime location to display their car!
