The first main event of the evening was for the Bombers, with Brian Calderwood and Rich Gerhardt making up the front row. Gerhardt would lead early before being passed by Dylan Ross on lap seven. Ross would then have to fend off strong charges from Sean Whitley and Tony Kambo to stay out front, which he managed to do for the rest of the main event, bringing home his fourth win of the season.

The next main event was for the Mini Figure 8’s. Riley Noyce would lead early on in the main event, with Kail Beck closing fast in second. Beck would take the lead at the halfway point, and would pull away from the field to score his fifth main event win of the season, and further extend his points lead. The dash win went to Kail Beck, with heat race wins going to Johnny Earl and Rhett Szevics.

The Loan Ranger Financial Claimers would be up next, with Kristy Krispin and Desire Veld on the front row. Eric Fournier would take the lead on lap three, with Caleb Tims slotting into second. Tims would take the lead with just three laps remaining, and snatched his second main event win of the season. Craig Matthews won the dash, with Desire Veld and Eric Fournier winning the heat races.

The next main event was for the Marlin Motors Hornets, with Ashley Creed and Carl Carlson starting on the front row. Carlson spun going into turn one on the opening lap and collected Dylan Thorpe and Ashley Creed. On the restart, Evan Pywell would take the lead, and stay there for the rest of the main event. Pywell would sweep the evening as well, winning the dash and the heat.

The next main event was for the Bombers, as they contested twin 25 lap mains. Stuart Campbell and Rich Gerhardt started on the front row, with Campbell leading the first five laps before being passed by Tony Kambo. Kambo would pull out to a big lead before being tracked down by Sean Whitley on the final lap. Whitley would attempt to make a move coming off of turn 4 on the last lap, but Kambo managed to hold on for his first main event win.

The last main event of the night was for the Demo Cars and Trucks, with Richard Morgan and Tim Bunyan leading the field to the green. George Haywood would lead the way for the first seven laps, before being hit by lap car of Kenny Baker. Shawn Young would then inherit the lead from his brother Brandon on the ensuing restart, and would pull away for yet another main event win.

 

The next race at Western Speedway is Cash Advantage Championship Night on September 16th for the Richlock Rentals Non Winged Sprint Cars, Galaxy Motors Stock Cars, Sooke Disposal Mini Stocks, OTRA, and the Island Dwarf Cars.
