What is the Northwest Pro4 Alliance?
It is four-cylinder late model racing the way it used to be. It allows you to compete at your home track for a championship while still being able to hit the road and race with guys that race like you do, "for the fun and enjoyment of close competition.
The Northwest Pro4 Alliance (NP4A) was developed by Jerry Keopping, Brad Carpenter and Bob Coply. With many
years of promoting
experience under their
belts, they came together
to create an "all star series" with some of the best Pro4 Late Model drivers the
The Northwest Pro4 Alliance is a proud member of WARPA
Northwest has to offer. With humble beginings in 2007 with a 3-race schedule, the series was as instant success. It gave drivers an opportunity that no other series could offer. The chance to race a handful of times a year but travel all over the northwest to some of the greatest tracks in the region. The chance to run against 25-35 of the most talented Pro-4 Late Model drivers in 75-100 lap feature events. The chance to pit their talents, driving and mechanical, against a concentrated group looking for the same thing. Its called the Alliance because it is just that. Drivers and teams from several states, hometracks scattered all over the northwest, come together to compete in the most competitive Pro4 Late Model show around. Its called a Challenge Series for the same reason. With the car count and the talent that this series pools together, any driver looking for a great time and great competition will find it here. The alliance Marketing staff has secured a substantial number of sponsors and are always working diligently to expand those numbers. Aside from cash winnings, vertually no driver will leave the race track empty handed. Product sponsors for this series is like no other around. At every event on the schedule drivers have the opportunity to win anything from new safety gear, new components for the race car, oil, tires, gift certificates, etc. You will find the numerous sponsors listed on the home page of this website and many have been with this series since its inception. They are a crucial component the success the NP4A thus far and hopefully in the years to come. 2008 saw the series expand to 4 races. It kept a similar schedule for 2009 but expanded to 5 events for the 2010 season. In 2011 the schedule was originally set at 5 but when the opportunity to compete at Evergreen Speedway along with the Nascar boys of the K&N series, a 6th date was added. In 6 events, 6 different drivers visited victory lane. In just its first 5 seasons, the NP4A has crowned four different Champions with 10 different drivers visiting victory lane in 27 races, while having competed at 8 different tracks. While drivers have come and gone, and some have come and stayed... the list of registered drivers is always strong. In a time when a lot of racing organizations are stuggling because of the finacial state of this country, the NP4A has flourished. This is all in part to the top notch facilities the series races at, the experience and dedication of the management team and staff, the abilities and commitment of the drivers, crews, families and fans, and the outstanding loyalty and support from the fine sponsors. The sky is truely the limit for the Northwest Pro4 Alliance. The 2012 season looks to prove just that.
