Three Times the Charm for Bland

By Cole Sorenson,


This past weekend Western Speedway played host to the Reg Midgley Memorial Canada 200, featuring top Late Model drivers from all over B.C., as well as the B.C. Street Stock Invitational.


The only main event Saturday night was for the B.C. Street Stock Invitational, with Jim Steen leading the field to the green. Troy Tarbuck would jump out to an early lead, but was forced to pull into the pits with a broken rack and pinion. This handed the lead over to Chris McInerney, who would lead until lap twenty nine, when the hard charging Rhett Smith would take the top spot. Brad Aumen and Rory Smith would bring out the first yellow on lap fifty four. Rhett Smith and Gary Smith would battle for the lead with five laps to go, before making contact. When it was all said and done, Rory Smith, Gary Smith, Rhett Smith, and Chris McInerney were knocked out of contention. Dave Reside took the lead on the restart, and won over Tyler Robinson, Jim Steen, Spencer Carlson, and Rory Smith.


The second main event for the Street Stocks was led to the green by Aaron Cameron and Jim Steen. Cameron would take an early lead, before Kyle Cottam stormed into first. Rory Smith worked his way into the top spot on lap twenty three, but just after halfway, the transmission went, forcing him to give up the lead to Kyle Cottam. Cottam would go onto win ahead of Gary Smith, Spencer Carlson, Dave Reside, and Tyler Robinson. The dash win went to Troy Tarbuck.


 The field rolled off for the Reg Midgley Canada 200, with Shane Berrow and Tyler Baker leading the field to the green. Berrow would lead the first sixty four laps, before being passed by dad Tom for the lead. After the halfway break on lap one hundred, Tom Berrow would pull away from Geoff Morris, before the first caution of the race came out on lap one sixteen for a spinning Brandon Carlson. The only other restart of the night would take place on lap one forty, which set up an epic battle between Tom Berrow and Wade Bland. Berrow slipped coming off of turn four with fifteen laps to go, allowing Bland to sneak by for the lead. Bland held off Tom Berrow, Dave Hemrich, Brandon Carlson, who had a great drive through the field to finish fourth, and Aaron Willison. The dash win went to Wade Bland, with heat races going to Ken Jorgansen and Brandon Carlson.


The next race at Western Speedway is Sept. 10th, featuring the O’Dell Slinger Service Superhero night, where all kids twelve and under dressed as a Superhero get in for free. Also featured will be the LORDCO Auto Parts Demo Series, and the Wilson’s Transportation Bus Race.
