Western Speedway Races through the RAIN!

By Cole Sorenson,

 

For the second weekend in a row the weather wreaked havoc on the racing program at Western Speedway, with heavy rain drenching the track for the second race of the season for the LORDCO Auto Parts Demo Series, Bombers, Mini Figure 8’s, and Loan Rangers Financial Claimers for the Freedom Rent to Own Demo Night. There was also a special exhibition from Richlock Rentals Capital Drift, whose drivers sloshed sideways through the puddles to entertain the brave  and slightly damp souls who endured the weather.

 

The first main event of the evening was for the Mini Figure 8’s, with David Newell and Tanner Jacobs leading the field to the green flag. Jacobs would get the early lead before being rammed into the wall while trying to cut through the busy intersection, handing the lead over to Kail Beck. Beck would lead all the way to the checkered flag, with Kyle Ridley, Rhett Szevics, Riley Noyce, and Mike Noyce rounding out the top five. The dash win went to David Newell, with heat race wins going to Kyle Ridley and Rhett Szevics.

 

The Loan Ranger Financial Claimers rolled onto the track for their main event, with John Cayer and Morgan Tallyn leading the field to the green. Cayer would lead early before being passed by Nolan Perry on lap four. Four laps later Perry would be passed for the lead by Curtis Boyce, who sped away from the field and looked set for the win until a right front tire went down with two laps to go, allowing Perry to catch back up and pass Boyce coming off of turn four to take the checkered. Curtis Boyce, Ryan Alexander, John Cayer, and Craig Matthews rounded out the field. The dash win went to John Cayer, with the heat race win going to Curtis Boyce.

 

Only five cars elected to brave out the rain and race for the Bombers, with the main event being shortened to eight laps. Mitch Hinton and Dylan Ross made up the front row, with Hinton jumping out to an early lead. On lap seven, Hinton spun, handing the lead over to Brian Wakelin, who would sweep the evening with a dash, heat, and main event win. Cam Stanfield, Dylan Ross, Mitch Hinton, and Stuart Campbell rounded out the field.

 

 The last main event of the evening was for the Demo Cars and Trucks, with Tim Bunyan and Colton Brown leading the field to the green flag. Jake Matthews would jump out to an early lead, before being forced into the turn four mud, with the car eventually getting stuck and requiring a tow to get out. Jim Young inherited the lead, with son Shawn right behind him in second. The Young Family Feud would end with Jim in victory lane, and Shawn in second. Craig Holfeld, Brandon Young, and Patch Knopf rounded out the top five.


The next race at Western Speedway is the Allterra Construction Night at the Races, featuring the season opener for the Keg Late Models, Wayne’s Trucking Winged Super Sprints, and the Island Dwarf Cars. The evening will also feature the second race of the season for the Galaxy Motors Stock Cars.
