By Cole Sorenson,

 

The 2016 season came to a dramatic close Saturday night at Western Speedway, with the Hydroforce Excavating Championship Night, featuring the LORDCO Auto Parts Demo Series, Nexx Financial Claimers, Marlin Motors Hornets, Wayne “The Train” Hart’s car jump, Rollover Contest, Boat Races, and a Total Destruction.

Brandon Young would jump out to an early lead before the red flag would come out on lap 4 for a hard collision between Nolan Perry and Jacob Burns. On the restart, Daryn Cahill would move into second, and on the last corner of the last lap, punted Brandon Young out of the way for the win. Cahill would also claim the season championship over Sam Lagan by 2 points. Heat race wins went to Daryn Cahill and Brenda Maber.

The caution would come out for a hard hit between Ron Benham and Gennifer Isles, with both drivers being knocked out for the rest of the main event. On the restart, Brian Baltis and Brad Aumen would battle for the lead, with Aumen coming out ahead. Mike Dionne would close in on the final lap, and briefly took the lead before tangling with a lap car, giving Aumen his fourth main event win of the season, and the Bomber championship. Heat race wins went to Ron Benham and Brad Aumen.

The Demo Cars and Trucks rolled out for their last main event of the season, with Stephen Bemister and Gerry Bernard leading the field to the green. Earlier in the first heat race, Bemister and Tyler Clough both flipped the length of the front straight, with Bemister being able to repair his car to start the main event. Keith Hansen would lead early on, before cutting a tire and being forced to pit. Cody Young would inherit the lead, and claimed his first main event win of the season. The Demo championship would go to Jaime Morgan, with Brandon Young being the highest placing truck. Heat race wins went to George Haywood and Shawn Young.
