PostHeaderIcon FIRST DOUG LARSON MEMORIAL, WILLIAMS LAKE AND QUESNELL BC, CANADA

WOW! What a great weekend of racing fun and probably the best show of the year. Many thanks to Bruce Bentley and Wendell Moore for all the hard work putting together the First Annual (we hope it is annual) Doug Larson Memorial Race at Thunder Mountain Speedway in Williams Lake and Gold Pan Speedway in Quesnell. Short track racing at its finest. The staff and fans at both tracks were outstanding. Louise Larson did a smashing job as Trophy Girl at Williams Lake. Both of Doug and Louise’s sons, Ronnie and Richie drove cars at Quesnel and Richie had restored an offset to honor his father that was on display in the pits. Veteran Bob Mears was flagman for both races and did a great job!! Weather was hot and the air smoky from the area fires, but good enough for racing. After the events we were provided with adult beverages and on Saturday, a beef on a bun with salads and desserts. All the drivers were presented with a gold pan plaque to commemorate the event.

Another beautiful (but HOT!) weekend at the Wenatchee Valley Super Oval. Garret Evans and George Wade always treat us right and we thank them for having our group come race for the Wenatchee fans. WCVR shared the show with the Early Late/OTRA, Northwest Focus Midgets, Wilroc Super Lites, and WESCO Winged Sprints. A small but enthusiastic crowd both nights enjoyed the show.

PostHeaderIcon Strawberry Cup, June 1 and 2, Victoria BC Part 2

Another wonderful trip to Victoria BC. Western Speedway always treats us fine (Steak dinner with free beer and live music after practice on Thursday and Steak and Eggs on Saturday morning). Can’t forget Susan at the All Fun RV Park. Always makes room for us in this well managed RV Park next to the track. Kudos to Jeff Cook, Mike Hoelzle and Saundra Lyons for all their hard work creating a smooth race. We had a good line up of cars - 2 out with engine issues, 3 out with wall issues, leaving 17 on track. Thanks to the Medic’s at the speedway for their quick action. Friday we got in one and half Dashes before the rains came and ended out evening. Saturday was perfect and the stands were quite full. Friday: D Dash leader was #77, Bob Nyeste with the race was stopped for an accident. C Dash was won by #16, Dale Nyeste. Saturday Winners: D Dash: #33 Ralph Monhayy C Dash: #21 Jeff Cook B Dash: #88 Ron Brewer A Dash: #98 Kirt Rompain B Heat: #77 Bob Nyeste A Heat: #88 Ron Brewer B Main: #77 Bob Nyeste A Main: #88 Ron Brewer

PostHeaderIcon Havasu 95 Speedway: March 24, 2018

Havasu 95 Speedway is a great venue for our cars. Bill, the promoter, is an old racer who appreciates our class as do the fans. Clean pits, good track and the stands were close to filled on race night. Jim White got cheered 3 times during his interview after his Dash win as he talked about our club and his family racing history. There was a car show the Saturday before we raced and BWR was well represented with 6 cars plus Jeff’s #21. The car show is the biggest in the area and is put on by the local Calvary Baptist Church and is free admission, free hot dog and chips, and all the free water you need. Over 320 cars, 50 bikes plus our race cars. Jim White won the only Dash, Heat winners were Jim White and Bob Wills and Marty White won the Main.

PostHeaderIcon Meridian Speedway, September 23, 2017 Volume One

Another race season comes to a close. Eleven tracks in 5 states and 2 countries. Everyone ended the year with no injuries (bodies or race car) and new friendships formed. Meridian weather was questionable on Friday, but Saturday was sunny with the fall chill in the air…. Perfect for racing.

PostHeaderIcon Agassiz Speedway, September 9, 2017

We would like to thank Agassiz Speedway for having our club up for some Saturday night racing. We had a total of 17 cars and on Friday afternoon the rains stopped and we were allowed 4 excusive hours on the track. For those of you who have not been there, Agassiz is a club managed track and all the workers are volunteers. We have a large parking area for camping and they have added several electrical hookups. Verlie made a big pot of chili for Friday night and a good time was had by all. Unfortunately, the rains started again in the night didn’t stop prompting the race to be called at 2pm. We hope WCVR will be included on the schedule for next years. Here are a pictures from Friday practice.
