Galaxy Motors Stocks Cars back for Second Season

By Cole Sorenson,

 

With the first race of the season just weeks away, Galaxy Motors and Western Speedway are proud to announce that the Galaxy Motors Stock Car division will return for 2017. Since striking up a deal to sponsor the class last season, the Galaxy Motors Stock Cars have grown in car count and competitiveness, with eight different main event winners over the course of last season. Galaxy Motors has been in the used car business for over 25 years, and offers Vancouver Island residents a selection of over 700 used cars and trucks across its four dealerships, in Victoria, Duncan, Nanaimo, and Courtenay.

 Heading into this season, Brendan Moore looks to defend his 2016 championship, in a year where he claimed the Jim and Lorraine Haslam Memorial Trophy on the Victoria Auto Racing Hall of Fame Night. Acting as a teammate of sorts to the defending champion, former Late Model driver Rhett “The Jet” Smith will be behind the wheel of the rebuilt #22 Finishline Interiors Monte Carlo. Wayne “The Train” Hart had a strong finish to the 2016 season, snatching up three main event wins in a row, including the Jerry Ferrie Memorial. Watch for more victory burnouts from the Seawings Express #11 this year. Ronnie Kiefert and Richard Milne will be debuting new cars for the season opener, with Kiefert behind the wheel of the rebuilt and renumbered #19 Island Powder Coating Monte Carlo, and Milne piloting the #68 Ramida Excavating Loan Ranger Financial Pontiac Grand Prix.

 

Along with the aforementioned drivers, former series champions Chris McInerney, Dave Reside, and Kyle Cottam will all look to snatch victory from the defending champion Moore. The strong rookie crop from last year will also look to develop from the tire tracks of last season, with Spencer Carlson, Aaron Cameron, Tyler Robinson, Bruce Duffus, and Meghan McCollom all back for their sophomore year. Add in names such as Mark Lockhart, Troy Tarbuck, “Gentleman” Jim Steen, and rookie Ray Wilkinson, and this year looks to be another strong season for the Galaxy Motors Stock Cars at Western Speedway.

 

The first race of the season for the Galaxy Motors Stock Cars is April 22nd, for the Vapour Solutions Night at the Races, with the evening also featuring the Richlock Rentals WILROC Non Winged Sprint Cars, Sooke Disposal Mini Stocks, OTRA, and the Marlin Motors Hornets.
