Winged Warriors Ready for Daffodil Cup Showdown

By Cole Sorenson,

 

This Friday and Saturday sees Western Speedway play host to the Royal Purple NSRA Winged Sprint Cars for the prestigious P&R Truck Centres Daffodil Cup. The penultimate round for the NSRA, this race will play a pivotal role in deciding the 2016 NSRA championship.

 

The off Island contingent will be strong for this race, with the likes of last year’s winner Andy Alberding,who captured his first ever Daffodil Cup win. Alberding will look to repeat this weekend, but will face extra competition this year in the face of son Kyle, who will be driving the Mitch Holte #33. Roseburg Oregon’s Matt Hein will look to take his first ever Daffodil Cup win, after finishing second both nights last year. Hein is coming off a major payday, having won the $10,000 Rory Price Memorial at Evergreen Speedway for the seventh time. This event is one of the only major pavement sprint car events that Hein hasn’t won, so watch for the 98H car to be a major factor.

 

 Vancouver Island will also be well represented, with Langford’s Jeff Montgomery leading the charge. “The Hurricane” won the King of the Wing race at the Wenatchee Valley Super Oval two weeks ago, and will look to take his first Daffodil Cup win in ten years. Cobble Hill’s Robbie Price sits third in NSRA points, the eighteen year old driving for the Rendle Brothers team. Price won the Friday night main event last year, and looked to become the youngest Daffodil Cup winner ever, before the engine let go in the Saturday main event. Price has two pavement wins this season, one at the Rebel Jackson Memorial in Ephrata, and at the Strawberry Cup. Darren Yates from Duncan will be debuting a new Beast chassis at this race. The crew have had to thrash to get the Tiger Towing “Green Monster” ready for this weekend, but watch for the two time WILROC champion to be in contention for his first Daffodil Cup win. Kyle Vantreight will also be out in the Vantreight Family #66, in his first Daffodil Cup since 2007.


Also racing will be the Richlock Rentals Non Winged Sprint Cars, OTRA, and the Island Dwarf Cars. For both nights, gates open at 4:30, qualifying at 5:30, and racing at 6:30. Head to www.westernspeedway.net for more information, or like us on Facebook.
