Western Speedway Finishes Wild 2017 Season

By Cole Sorenson,

 

Western Speedway’s 2017 season came to a dramatic conclusion on Saturday Night, with the track playing host to the Hydroforce Excavating Championship Night, featuring Wayne “The Crazy Train” Hart’s Corkscrew Car Jump, Boat Races, a Total Destruction, and live music from Montgomery County. The evening also saw the LORDCO Auto Parts Demo Series and Loan Ranger Financial Claimers complete their 2017 season.

_MG_8885.jpg

The first main event of the evening was for the Mini Figure 8’s, with Nolan Perry leading the field to the green. Perry led early on before Kyle Ridley passed him for the top spot on lap six. Ridley would get a flat right front tire shortly after, handing the lead over to Kail Beck. Beck would go onto capture the main event win, as well as the 2017 season championship. The dash win went to Rhett Szevics, with heat race wins going to Mike Noyce and Rhett Szevics.

_MG_8856.jpg

The Demo Cars and Trucks were the second main event of the evening, with Eddy Cooper and Steve Jansen starting on the front row. Cooper would lead the opening nine laps before getting collected by Cody and Shawn Young, with the latter taking the lead. Shawn would go unchallenged for the rest of the main event and cap off a championship winning season with yet another main event win. Brandon Young was the highest finishing truck, and also won the truck trophy dash and heat. George Haywood and Shawn Young won the other dash and heat.

 

The next main event was for the Loan ranger Financial Claimers, with Dennis Stewart starting on pole. Stewart would pull away from the field and streak to his first Claimer main event win by half a lap over second place Caleb Tims. Curtis Boyce was crowned the 2017 Loan Ranger Financial Claimer champion, with the driver of the #9 finishing the main event in fourth place to secure the title. The dash win went to John Cayer, with heat race wins going to Eric Fournier and Brent Robinson.

 The last main event of the evening was for the Bombers, with Tyler Clough and George Newell starting on the front row. Clough jumped out to an early lead and stayed in front, fending off Sean Whitley for his first main event win of the year. Whitley’s second place finish earned him enough points to be crowned the 2017 Bomber champion.The dash and first heat race win went to Dylan Ross, with Brian Wakelin winning the other heat.

 

 A big thanks goes out to all of our fans, racers, staff, and volunteers for a great year, and we look forward to the 2018 racing season.

_MG_8734.jpg

The red flag would come out on lap seventeen for an incident involving Shane Woolcock and Dave Morrison, with both drivers walking away under their own power. Morrison would later be transported to Victoria General Hospital for evaluation. On the restart Mike Haslam would chase down race leader Bird, and made his bid for the lead on lap twenty four. Haslam would have little time to rest however, as James Miller hounded the 22H for the last half of the race, with Haslam just managing to hold off the hard charging 71 for the main event win. Haslam also won the 2017 championship. James Miller, Jeff Montgomery, Jeff Bird, and Brandon French rounded out the top five. The dash win went to Greg Sagmoen, with heat race wins going to Mike Haslam and Mike Schott.

This past weekend Western Speedway played host to the Reg Midgley Canada 200, featuring the Keg Late Models, and the Two Burley Men Moving BC Street Stock Challenge for both Saturday and Sunday night. On Saturday the two classes were also joined by the Sooke Disposal Mini Stocks, OTRA, and the Marlin Motors Hornets.

 

The first main event of the evening was for the Marlin Motors Hornets, with Mike Hart and Brenda Maber making up the front row. Evan Pywell would jump out to an early lead, with Riley Windsor, Gennifer Isles and Jason Day closing in lap by lap. On lap 10 there was a caution for Nolan Perry, who came to a stop in turn one. On the restart, Jason Day took the lead, and pulled away from the field to take yet another big track Hornet main event. Gennifer Isles, Riley Windsor, Evan Pywell, and Alex McLellan rounded out the top five. The dash win went to Alex McLellan, with the heat race win going to Gennifer Isles.

_MG_7789.jpg

The next main event was for the Sooke Disposal Mini Stocks, with Bailey Meeres and Matt Szauer starting on the front row. Szauer would take the lead away from Meeres on lap two, with Alex Mouner slotting into second. Mouner would stay locked on Szauer’s rear bumper until the red 96 would slow and pull into the pits. Szauer would have clear sailing from then on out, and captured his first main event win of the season. Ryan Patterson, Jeremy Waksel, Joey Reaume, and Stu Ferguson rounded out the top five. The dash win went to Stu Ferguson, with heat race wins going to Matt Szauer and Stu Ferguson.

 

The next main event was for the Old Timers, with the field racing for the Denny Rand Memorial. Dave Richens and Tyler Clough started on pole, with Clough leading the opening lap. Doug Richens shot up to third place from the sixth row on the grid in two laps, and then passed Clough for the lead on lap three. The remainder of the race would be a battle between Richens and Jesse Dardengo, with the two drivers separating themselves from the pack. In the end, Richens would hold off the charge from Dardengo to snatch the Denny Rand Memorial. The dash win went to Kail Beck, with heat race wins going to Chris Hamber and Larry Joyce.

_MG_7876.jpg

The final main event of the evening was for the Street Stocks, with twenty four cars lining up for the 75 lap Bill Foster Memorial. Tyler Clough led the opening few laps before being passed by Aaron Yazlovasky for the lead on lap five. The first caution of the race would come out on lap fifteen, when Clough would get together with Wayne “The Train” Hart going down the back straight, sending both cars into the outside wall. Yazlovasky would remain out front until the second caution of the race, when Richard Milne and Cole Anderson spun on lap twenty three, with the wreck also collecting Aaron Cameron and Ryan Wade. On the restart, Spencer Carlson and Dave Reside would split Yazlovasky for the lead, with Carlson eventually coming out on the winning end of the battle for the lead. Carlson would go onto win the main event, with Dave Reside, Ronnie Kiefert, Kyle Cottam, and Russ Luke rounded out the top five. The dash win went to Pascal Lavoie, with heat races going to Aaron Yazlovasky and Wayne Hart.

 

_MG_7969.jpg

The first of only two main events on Sunday was the other 75 lap main event for the BC Street Stocks, with Tyler Robinson leading the field to the green. Cole Anderson jumped out to an early race lead in the 16A, with the faster cars moving up into the top ten. On lap thirty four, Rhett Smith would close the gap and pass Anderson for the lead, with Ryan Wade following into second. Smith would win over Wade by half a lap, with Kyle Cottam, Cole Anderson, and Spencer Carlson rounding out the top five. The dash win went to Rhett Smith.

_MG_8150.jpg

The Reg Midgley Canada 200 was the closer for the weekend, with J.P. Benoit and Tony Grant starting on the front row. Brandon Carlson lunged past Grant for the lead on the second lap, with Jarrett Bonn following through in second. Carlson would be out in front until lap forty, when Dave Hemrich would make his move for the lead. The two drivers would then swap the lead back and forth for the next twenty laps, with Carlson finally slipping on lap sixty four and allowing Hemrich to pull away. At the halfway break, Hemrich was leading Aaron Wilkie, Tom Berrow, Brandon Carlson, and Wes Mader. When the race restarted, Carlson stayed locked on Hemrich’s rear bumper before the handling started to go away. A rash of cautions with under sixty laps to go created a few more anxious moments for Hemrich, but at the end of the almost two hour marathon it would be the 33 car that rolled into victory square. Carlson, Wes Mader, Trevor Adelman, and Jarrett Bonn rounded out the top five.

 

The next race at Western Speedway is the O’Dell Slinger Service Superhero Night on September 10th, with kids 12 and under dressed up as superheros getting in for free. The race will feature the LORDCO Auto Parts Demo Series, Bombers, Loan Ranger Financial Claimers, the Wilson’s Transportation Bus Race, Richlock Rentals Capital Drift, and a rollover contest.

The caution was thrown to send Gallacher into the pits, allowing Dylan Ross to take the lead on the restart. Ross fended off Tony Kambo, Brian Wakelin, Ron Noulette, and Terry Leerholm for the win. The dah win went to Dylan Ross, with heat race wins going to Stuart Campbell and Bill Gallacher.

This past weekend Western Speedway played host to the Island Batteries Night at the Races, featuring the Keg Late Models Championship Night, the Galaxy Motors Stock Cars, Sooke Disposal Mini Stocks, and the Marlin Motors Hornets.

The first main event of the evening was the first Twin 50 for the Keg Late Models. Kevin Knight and Wes Mader started on pole, with Mader taking the lead in the early stages. On lap 16, Geoff Morris made a move for the lead on the outside, only for the two drivers to get together, and sending Brent Morris and Tim Graham into the mess as well. On the restart, Brandon Carlson would inherit the lead, with Rob Angus locked on his rear bumper. On lap forty two Angus took the lead going into turn one, with Carlson trying a crossover move to try and take back the lead. The end result was the two drivers making contact coming off of turn two, and Carlson flipping the length of the backstretch. Carlson walked away uninjured. Bob Kuhn was awarded the victory in the shortened main, with Geoff Morris finishing in second, and Mike Soppitt in third.

The second main event was for the Marlin Motors Hornets, with Logan Hart and Cody Young leading the field to the green. Young would lead the way early before the caution would come out on lap two for Ryan McHale, who hit the turn four wall. On the restart, Young would lead for five more laps before being passed by Jason Day. Day would run away with the main event win, with Gennifer Isles, Riley Windsor, Ashley Creed, and Alan Hansen rounding out the top five. The dash and first heat race win went to Alan Hansen, with the second heat going to Jason Day.

 The next main event was for the Sooke Disposal Mini Stocks with Bailey Meeres and Matt Szauer starting on the front row. Meeres led the first eight laps, before being passed by Alex Mouner. Mouner would then have Ryan Patterson and Caleb Van Bree filling his mirrors for the last half of the race, with the driver of the 96 being able to fend off both drivers for the main event win. Ryan Patterson, Caleb Van Bree, Stu Ferguson, and Jason Day rounded out the top five. The dash win went to Alex Mouner, with the heat race going to Matt Szauer.

 The next to last main event was for the Galaxy Motors Stock Cars, with Aaron Cameron and Ronnie Kiefert leading the field to the green. Cameron and Kiefert would battle out front for the first few laps, before Cameron would pull away in the lead. On lap twenty, Rhett Smith would pull to the outside of Cameron to challenge for the lead. On lap twenty three, lapped car Cayden Smith spun in front of the leaders, leaving Rhett Smith nowhere to go, and knocking him out for the rest of the main event. On the restart, Aaron Cameron would pull away from the rest of the field, and captured his third main event win of the season. Ronnie Kiefert, Wayne “The Train” Hart, Tyler Robinson, and Chris McInereny rounding out the top five. The dash win went to Wayne “The Train” Hart, with heat race wins going to Brendan Moore and Rhett Smith.

 The final main event of the evening was the second main event for the Keg Late Models, with Brent Morris and Jason Frost making up the front row. Aaron Wilkie would take the lead away from Brent Morris on lap six, and wouldn’t look back, capturing his first main event win of the season. Geoff Morris, Tim Graham, Bob Kuhn, and Brent Morris rounded out the top five. Bob Kuhn was crowned season champion by nine points over Geoff Morris.
