Eve of Destruction Delivers Once Again

By Cole Sorenson,


This past weekend Western Speedway played host to the Tire Exchange Eve of Destruction, featuring the Crusher Car Jumps, Van Blow Up, Chain Race, Skid Plate Races, the Boat Race, and the LORDCO Auto Parts Demo Series. A packed crowd was also treated to Montgomery County, which performed in between racing action.


The first main event of the evening was for the Mini Figure 8’s, with Tanner Jacobs and Brandon Green leading the field to the green. Jacobs would lead the opening 6 laps, before being passed by Mike Noyce for the lead. Noyce would then have to try and fend off former champion Rhett Szevics, with the driver of the 35 car making a move for the lead on lap eleven. Szevics would pull away from the rest of the field, and would snatch his first main event win of the season. Mike and Riley Noyce, David Wright, and Stephen Green would round out the top five. Rhett Szevics swept the evening, winning the dash and his heat race, with Mike Noyce winning the other heat.


 The next main event was for the Loan Ranger Financial Claimers, with Kristy Crispin and Desire Veld leading the field to the green. Jaxon Vaccher would jump out to an early lead, with Nolan Perry charging his way up to second. Perry would pass Vaccher with six laps to go to score his fourth main event win of the season in the Claimers. Vaccher, Caleb Tims, Curtis Boyce, and Craig Matthews rounded out the top five. The dash and first heat race went to Caleb Tims, with Trevor Cannon winning the other heat.


The last main event of the evening was for the Demo Cars and Trucks, with Richard Morgan and Billy Stidston starting on the front row. Both drivers would be overtaken going into turn one by Brandon Young, with brother Shawn in tow. Both Young brothers would battle for the top spot for the next six laps, before Craig Holfeld joined the battle for the lead with five laps to go. Shawn Young and Holfeld would battle all the way to the checkered flag, with Holfeld dumping Young off of turn four on the last lap for the lead and the win. Cody Young, Jim Young, Billy Stidston, and Brandon Young rounded out the top five. Dash wins went to Brandon Young and Patch Knopf, with Young also bringing home a heat race win. Craig Holfeld won the other heat.


 The Bomber main event was scheduled for twenty laps, but was unfortunately stopped on lap two so that officials could deal with a medical emergency in the pits. The race was ultimately called off, and the Bombers will run twin main events on a yet to be determined race night.


The next race at Western Speedway is July 15th for the CHEK News Hometown Heroes Night, featuring the Keg Late Models for Twin 50 Lap main events, Galaxy Motors Stock Cars, and the Sooke Disposal Mini Stocks. There will also be a special presentation honouring CHEK’s “Hometown Heroes.”
