Winners Crowned in Westshore Transmissions Night at the Races!

by Cole Sorenson

 

The rain finally stayed away at Western Speedway this past weekend for the Westshore Transmissions Night at the Races, which featured the LORDCO Auto Parts Demo Series, Bombers, Loan Ranger Financial Claimers, and Mini Figure 8’s.

 

The first main event of the evening was for the Mini Figure 8’s, with Trisha Cooper and Tanner Jacobs leading the field the green. Jacobs would lead the first ten laps before being punted into the wall, with Kail Beck inheriting the lead. Beck would lead the rest of the way, nabbing back to back wins in the Mini Figure 8’s. Rhett Szevics, Tanner Jacobs, Kyle Ridley, and Andrea Cannon rounded out the top five. Kyle Ridley won the dash, with Ryley Noyce and Rhett Szevics claiming heat race wins.

 

The Loan Ranger Financial Claimers were up next for their twenty lap main event, with Kristy Krispin and Matt Amedro leading the field to the green. Jaxon Vaccher would jump out to an early lead, with Nolan Perry in hot pursuit. Perry would squeeze his way past Vaccher for the lead on lap seven, and held off a hard charging Curtis Boyce for his second main event win of the season. Boyce, Gord Percival, Trevor Cannon, and Jaxon Vaccher rounded out the top five. Perry also won the dash, with Caleb Tims and Trevor Cannon winning the two heat races.

 

The Demo Cars and Trucks were up next for their fifteen lap main event, with Richard Morgan leading the field to the green. Steve Janssen would jump out to an early lead, with Shawn Young in hot pursuit. Young and Janssen would tangle on lap seven, handing the lead over to Cody Young, who would go on to dominate the rest of the main event. The Young family would sweep the next three positions, with Brandon, Shawn, and Jim finishing second through fourth. Shawn Young won the Demo Car dash, with Brandon Young winning the Demo Truck dash. Heat race wins went to Patch Knopf and Jim Young.

 

The Bombers had the last main event of the evening, with Stuart Campbell and Mike Whitley leading the field to the green for the 75 lap Madden Cup. The caution would come out on lap one for Terry Leerholm, who had a throttle stick on his #23 Camaro going into turn three. Leerholm was okay, but the car was done for the rest of the night. On the restart Campbell would retake the lead before being passed by Jarrod Soberg on lap eighteen. Soberg would rage a battle with Cam Stanfield for the lead for the next few laps, before Stanfield started to drop back with overheating issues. On lap forty one, the red flag would come out for an incident involving Ron Noulette, Stuart Campbell, Tony Kambo, and Brian Wakelin. Noulette lost a motor going into turn three, with Campbell, Kambo, and Wakelin all spinning in his oil and making contact with the wall. On the restart, Soberg would pull away from Bill Gallacher, who was the only other car on the lead lap. Gallacher would drop out with overheating issues twelve laps from the finish, leaving Soberg uncontested for the win. Dylan Ross finished two laps behind in second, with Ron Benham, Brian Calderwood, and Bill Gallacher rounding out the top five. Soberg would later be disqualified do to illegal springs, handing the win over to Dylan Ross. Only four cars were running at the end of the main event out of fifteen starters.
