Moore Captures Jim and Lorraine Haslam Trophy

Race fans gathered Saturday night for the annual Victoria Auto Racing Hall of Fame Night, with the Galaxy Motors Stock Cars running for the Jim and Lorraine Haslam Memorial Trophy. Unfortunately, due to rain, the planned interviews with the inductees had to be cut short, but we would still like to acknowledge the 2016 Hall of Fame inductees, Butch Behn, Jerry Flesh, and Tracey and Terry Cessford from T’N’T Racing, and thank Dave Ferguson and Norm Wilcox for Opening the Hall of Fame for the fans to enjoy. Also, there was an exhibition by two Modifieds, Dano Bryant and Gil Cyr, with Cyr winning the 12 lap main event.

The Dwarf Car main was first up, with Ron French and Dave Nielsen leading the field to the green flag. On lap one, Mike Meeres got tangled up with Tovay Helgesen, setting off  a chain reaction, collecting Brad Scafe, Dave Wright, and Kinser Kennedy. French and Nielsen would pull away from the pack on the restart, and raged a race long battle for the win. Riley Carter and Brad Scafe moved into second and third, but Ron French held on to win by a car length over Riley Carter, Brad Scafe, Dave Nielsen, and Mike French. Dave Wright had a hard crash after the checkered flag fell, losing the brakes and having his throttle stick going into turn 1. Wright was sore, but otherwise okay. The dash win went to Riley Carter, with heat races going to Brad Struck and Ron French.

 

The Mini Stock main event was next up, with Jeremy Waksel and Bobby Ryan leading the field to the green. Caleb Van Bree took the lead going into turn 4, and started to pull away, before being tracked down by Ryan Patterson. Patterson made a pass to the outside on lap 6, and would never look back, crossing the line ahead of Van Bree, Matt Szauer, Alex Mouner, and Sean Constantine. The dash win went to Caleb Van Bree, with the heat race win going to Ryan Patterson.

The OTRA main event was next, with Kiff Saunders and Roger Beck leading the field to the green. Beck would take the lead down the backstretch on lap one, and started to pull out a gap over second place Joe Dardengo. Dardengo would start to close on Beck, but would run out of laps, as Roger Beck brought home his second main event win in the Old Timers, followed by Joe Dardengo, George Jenson, Troy Tarbuck, and Doug Richens. The dash win went to George Jenson, with the heat race win going to Roger Beck.

The Stock Cars lined up for there main event, which was shortened to 40 laps due to showers that were happening off and on around the Speedway. Jim Steen and Steve Miller led the field to the green. Miller would jump out to an early lead, before being passed by Brendan Moore in the 16 car. Moore would turn up the heat in the next few laps, pulling out to a 6 second lead over second place Chris McInerney. Moore would hold the large lead, bringing home the win, and the Jim and Lorraine Haslam Memorial Trophy, ahead of Chris McInerney, Kyle Cottam, Spencer Carlson, and Mark Lockhart. Spencer Carlson took his first ever dash win, with heat race wins going to Brendan Moore and Mark Lockhart.
