Champions Crowned in Weird Season Finale

By Cole Sorenson,

 

The Cash Advantage Freedom Rent to Own Championship Night signified the end of the season for the Richlock Rentals WILROC Non Winged Sprint Cars, Galaxy Motors Stock Cars, Mini Stocks, OTRA, and the Dwarf Cars. The predicted weather stayed away long enough to complete the racing program, much to the delight of the fans that stuck around.

The first main event was for the Island Dwarf Cars, with Miles Maxie and Tovay Helgesen leading the field to the green. Mike Meeres would grab the early advantage in the 89 car, before Brandon French charged to the top spot. French would pull away, claiming another main event win, ahead of Mike Meeres, Brad Scafe, Tovay Helgesen, and Dave Nielsen. Brandon French would be crowned the Dwarf Car champion for 2016.

The Mini Stocks were next up, with Bobby Ryan and Stu Ferguson leading the field to the green flag. Ryan would grab an early lead, with Ferguson trailing behind in second. The 33 car was fast all night, and Bobby would lead every lap of the main event to win his first race of the season. Stu Ferguson, Ryan Patterson, Sean Constantine, and Joey Reaume rounded out the top five. Caleb Van Bree was crowned Mini Stock champion for 2016.

The OTRA main event was up next, with Roger Beck and Matt Verhagen leading the field to the green. Jim Miller would slice his way to the front from the second row to leap the opening lap, with George Jenson charging through the field to second. The two would battle for the final ten laps, with Miller coming out on top, and claiming the Championship Night Trophy, ahead of George Jenson, Brent Morris, Doug Richens, and Kail Beck.

The Galaxy Motors Stock Cars would line up for their final main event of the season, with Mark Lockhart and Jim Steen leading the field to the green. Lockhart would lead the opening twelve laps, before tangling with Spencer Carlson and Brendan Moore to bring out the caution on lap thirteen. Dave Reside would inherit the lead, and held off Wayne “The Train” Hart by half a car length to win. Spencer Carlson, Chris McInerney, and Aaron Cameron rounded out the top five. Brendan Moore was crowned the 2016 Stock Car champion.

The WILROC Sprint Cars were the last main event of the evening, with Dave Conway and Shane Woolcock leading the field to the green. In turn two on lap one, Conway would spin in front of the field, taking out Mike Schott, Guy Barrett, and Mark Stuart. On the restart, Tim Openshaw would take the lead, with Ryan Orchard in hot pursuit. Orchard would pass Openshaw for the lead on lap seven, before Jeff Montgomery would take the lead on lap ten. Then on lap twelve, the turn four lights would go out. With drivers unable to see, the red flag came out. After a ten minute delay, it was found that the lights could not be repaired, so Jeff Montgomery was awarded the main event win in one of the strangest endings to a main event in Western Speedway history. Montgomery also claimed his second WILROC Championship in a row.


The next race is the Hydroforce Excavating Season Finale, featuring the LORDCO Auto Parts Demo Series, Nexx Financial Claimers, Marlin Motors Hornets, a Car Jump, Boat Races, Total Destruction, Rollover contest, and Fireworks.
