Holfeld, Dionne, Perry and Beck Crowned Winners on Triangle RV Team Demo Night

By Cole Sorenson

 

Fans flocked to Western Speedway this past Saturday night for the Triangle RV Centre Team Demo Challenge at Western Speedway. The night featured the Team Demo Challenge, with Team Hansen vs The Hitmen competing in a full track Total Destruction and the Howie’s Car Corral Total Destruction to finish off the evening. The night also featured the LORDCO Auto Parts Demo Series, Bombers, Mini Figure 8’s and the Loan Ranger Financial Claimers.

The first race of the night was for the Mini Figure 8’s, with Trisha Cooper and Tanner Jacobs leading the field to the green. The race would be stopped twice, once for David Newell on lap three when his car caught on fire, and another for Tanner Jacobs, who crashed out of the lead on lap seven. When the race restarted, Kail Beck assumed the lead, and would win going away, capturing his third straight main event of the season. Riley Noyce, Jeff Cole, Kyle Ridley, and Andrea Cannon rounded out the top five. Rhett Szevics won the trophy dash and the first heat race, with Tanner Jacobs winning the other heat.

The Loan Ranger Financial Claimers were next up, with Morgan Tallyn and Kristy Crispin leading the field to the green. Crispin would snatch the early lead, with Caleb Tims in hot pursuit. Nolan Perry would join the fray on lap six, passing both Tims and Crispin, and running away with the lead. A late race caution would bunch the field back up, but Perry would still manage to hold off Allana Jacobs for the win. Craig Matthews, Warren Verrall, and Thomas Fanthorpe would round out the top five. The dash win would go to Ronnie Kiefert, with heat race wins going to Craig Matthews and Nolan Perry.

The Bombers would roll onto the track for their 30 lap main, with Brian Wakelin and Ron Benham making up the front row. Wakelin would place his pink 39 out in front, with Benham staying right on his rear quarter panel for the first seven laps. Wakelin would have several drivers breathing down his neck for the next fifteen laps, before Mike Dionne would make his move for the lead with seven laps to go. Dionne would win his first appearance of the season at Western, with Brian Wakelin, Jarrod Soberg, Rich Gerhardt, and Sean Whitley rounding out the top five. Mike Dionne won the dash, with Rich Gerhardt and Brian Wakelin taking both heat races.

The last main event of the evening was for the Demo Cars and Trucks, with Richard Morgan and Wayne Hart making up the front row. Shawn Young would punt his way to an early lead, with Craig Holfeld slotting into second. With just three laps to go, Young’s car would come to a stop, handing the lead over to second place driver Craig Holfeld. Holfeld would hang on to capture his first win of the season, with Brandon Young, Cody Young, Jim Young, and Richard Morgan rounding out the top five. The dash win went to Cody Young, with the heat race win going to Shawn Young.

 

The Triangle RV Team Demo event did not disappoint as the “Hitmen” destroyed many of the Team Hansen Cars early on in the 10 minute event. The “Hitmen” won in dominating fashion as there was not a single Team Hansen car left on the track. They had either all been destroyed, or parked out of fear of the beating being handed out by the “Hitmen”.

 

In the Howie’s Car Corral Total Destruction, Team Hansen flexed their muscle, with Keith Hansen taking the win and son Dakota finishing second.  

 

The next race at Western Speedway is June 9th-10th for the West Coast Tire & Wheel Strawberry Cup, featuring the Wayne’s Trucking Winged Super Sprints, Richlock Rentals Non Wing Sprint Cars, and the Smith “N” Gordon West Coast Vintage Racers Vintage Sprint Cars and Supermodifieds.
