Monsters Invade Western Speedway

By Cole Sorenson,

 

Western Speedway played host to three days of Monster Truck action this past friday, Saturday, and Sunday. On Friday and Sunday, the crowds were wowed by Monster Truck racing and freestyle action, as well as demonstrations from Freestyle Motocross riders and Richlock Rentals Capital Drift. Saturday featured the LORDCO Auto Parts Demo Series, with equally entertaining results.

The first main event was for the Mini Figure 8’s, with Maeva Legault and Stephen Green leading the field to the green flag. Green would jump out to an early lead, before being punted out of the way by Daryn Cahill on lap number nine. Cahill would run away from the rest of the field, and would cross the line ahead of Sam Lagan, Alex Carey, Tanner Jacobs and Brandon Young. The race would see just six of the sixteen starters finish. The dash win went to Daryn Cahill, with heat races going to Shawn Hitchings and Alex Carey.

Curtis Boyce would charge from row three to take the lead on lap five, and held off Bruce Knight, Brian Calderwood, Nolan Perry, and Daniel David for the win. The dash and heat wins went to Allana Jacobs.

Terry Leerholm would take the lead on lap three, with the caution coming out for Tony Kambo and Gennifer Isles on lap eight, with Isles being knocked out for the rest of the night with steering damage. Bill Gallacher would take the lead on lap fifteen, with the red flag coming out on lap eighteen for Jarrod Soberg, who slammed into the turn three wall. On the restart, Gallacher would drive away, until a tire let go with three laps to go. Cam Stanfield would inherit the lead, and held off Brad Aumen, Brian Baltis, Brian Wakelin, and Mike Dionne for the win. The dash win went to Mike Dionne, with heat race wins going to Bill Gallacher and Brad Aumen.

The Demo Car and Truck main event saw Stephen Bemister and Jim Young leading the field to the green. Going into turn one, Cody Young would get together with Eddy Cooper, sending Cooper into Jim Young, and ending with Cooper wedged on top of the tire wall. On the restart, Jaime Morgan would jump out to the lead, The red would come out on lap eight for Ashton Campbell, who rolled the 23 truck on its side in turn three. Campbell was fine, with the truck suffering minor damage. Mogan would go on to capture his third straight main event of the season, followed by Brandon Young, Cody Young, George Haywood, and Craig Holfeld. Dash wins went to Brandon Young and Cody Young, with the heat race win going to Jaime Morgan.
