Eight Race Divisions Make For Exciting Night At Flamboro Speedway

Posted on Posted in '17 News
By Randy Spencer for Flamboro Speedway – A busy night of racing at Bennett Chevrolet Flamboro Speedway with the Lucas Oil Sportsman in town and they were joined by the Junior Late Models and Mini Trucks from Grand Bend & Full Throttle Speedways as well as the Budget Tire Pure Stocks, Klotz Auto Repair & Engine Machine Shop Mini Stocks, Ray’s Auto Centre & Towing Super Stocks, Pro Four Modifieds and the Lucas Oil Can Am Midgets.
A jam packed night of racing would get underway at 630pm. A drivers meeting was held with the Mini Stocks prior to racing to discuss last weeks feature race dust up. From all reports the meeting went well and the drivers even got together on their own after the track meeting to discuss it among themselves. Good to see they want to make sure everyone is on the same page so they can all have a good and safe time as well as save their race cars from being wrecked unnecessarily.
The night got underway with time trials for the Lucas Oil Sportsman series. They were having this make up race after the original date was cancelled due to rain at Peterborough Speedway earlier this month. Eleven cars were signed in and one car, the 9 of Bob Schultheiss had a rear end let go as he was qualifying and his night was done. The rest of the pack to five laps and Chad McGlynn would lay down the fast time with a 16.119.
The first race to hit the track was the Junior Late Models or J Cars as they are known as at Grand Bend and Full Throttle Speedways where they race the majority of the time. Ten cars made the first race with Cody Wilds and Brent Small on the pole. Small would lead lap one but on lap four Jacob Campbell would take the lead down the back stretch. A couple laps late heading through 3-4 the 48 and 43 bounced around and got loose and the 43 would go backwards to the wall and the 48 took a right and hit the wall quite hard. These are basically a go kart with a race car body so at first it looked bad. Both drivers were shaken but didn’t seem to badly hurt otherwise. The race continued with Campbell leading off the restart and the rest of the way to pick up the win. Campbell currently leads J Car points at Grand Bend/Full Throttle. The Mini Trucks were next with Tanner Pirie and Kaisha Zimoch leading the field to green. Pirie led by a good margin early but the 11 of Kevin Stark caught Pirie and took the lead and would pick up the win.
Pure Stocks were next and nice to see 23 cars signed in. They are prepping for their big event Monday night as the Pure Stock Invitational awards $500 to the winner. Clinton Kerkhof and Bob Hillar were on the pole. Hillar led the first two laps and the next time past the caution flew as Devyn Bye was into the 24 of Blair Mayhew bringing out the caution. On the restart Kerkhof was the new leader and he would lead the rest of the way for the win.
Fifteen Mini Stocks were led to green by Mike Gilmour and Kyle Istead. Gilmour led lap one by the 76 of Shawn Taylor got by through 3-4 the next lap to take the lead. He quickly built a big lead and wouldn’t be seriously challenged and picked up the victory.
Carson Nagy and Brandon McFerran were on the pole as ten Super Stocks took their first green flag of the night. Nagy led a tight pack of six cars nose to tail for several laps early. Shawn Arnott was running second and took the lead through 3-4 four laps in and wouldn’t look back picking up the victory.
The Pro Four Modifieds were next and Aaron Turkey and Dan Nanticoke were pole. Nanticoke has had a great year and continued his dominance as he led flag to flag for the victory. Nice battle for second and third between Turkey and Brian Nanticoke.
The Can Am Midgets were next with twelve cars taking green. Luc Munsie and Dominique Smith were out front with Smith leading early. Darren Dryden was experiencing problems and hit the pits early. Barry Dunn would take the lead as the cars made there way into one on lap three. Dunn would battle Adam Racine for several laps. The two battled back and forth for several laps with Racine being the new leader at lap ten. He would build a healthy lead with the battle raging behind. Mack Deman was on Dunn’s “bumper” with Steve Murdock there as well. Deman would get past Dunn followed by Murdock. Deman started to gain on Racine and out of four made a valiant effort to take the lead but a slight wobble by Deman and that gave Racine all he needed as he edged Deman for the win.
The LOSC were next for their first 50 lap race. The fast five draw would take place to determine the front five. Five young fans each held a hat with a number and each driver would pick one to see where he would start in the top five. Alvin McNichol qualified fifth and drew first and he would pick fourth and move up one spot from where he qualified earlier. Next was Doug Cathcart, he moved from fourth to fifth. The “Flying Farmer” was next, he qualified third fastest and drew the pole. Brandt Graham qualified second and drew third with the fast time driver, Chad McGlynn having the last hat and was second. That set the field. As they took green it was Gallant leading lap one. The field battle nose to tail for several laps. The 05 of Brandon Huras was showing significant smoke and was black flagged to the pits. The first caution was on lap 17 as Adam Martin was around in two. On the restart it was still Gallant leading narrowly over Graham and McGlynn. A few laps later Graham got past Gallant through 3-4 and was the new leader. A caution one lap later as Martin was around in the same spot as earlier bringing a caution. On the restart, Graham led but a oil leak from the 43 of Bob Merrifield around most of the track brought caution and a red. Due to time constraints, the race was called after 30 laps with Brandt Graham the winner.
We got right into round two of features with just 21 of the original 23 Pure Stocks taking green. Paul Ditner and Matt Fraser were pole and Fraser led lap one. the 90x of Gary Slama was off with a flat on lap one and first feature winner Clinton Kerkhof was off on lap two. On lap four a new leader emerged, the 16 of Mark Thorne. Thorne entered the night 23 points back of leader Doug Moir. He would help his cause by leading the rest of the way to pick up the win.
Mini Stocks were next with Kaitlyn Wallace and Mike Hooper leading the field to green. David Gallinger had a fast car on the night and led early. He would put on quite a battle with points leader Russ Aicken. Aicken eventually would get past followed by Allie Ditner. Ditner would be a little quicker and got past to be the new leader by the half way point. She had a big lead but Jason Leblanc would be around in two on lap thirteen bringing the field back to even. That didn’t faze Ditner as she once again built a comfortable lead to pick up the win.
Super Stocks were next and Chris Howse and Carson Nagy were pole. Howse led early but Brandon McFerran took the lead heading down the front stretch on lap six. Nick Troback would follow through to take second followed by Brad Collison who moved to third as Howse quickly found himself on the outside and was back to fifth. Mcferran, who trails points leader Troback by 17 points would battle hard for several laps but Troback would get by for the lead late and hold on for the win.
Pro Fours were up for their second fifteen lap feature event. Gillian Hills and Aaron Turkey were pole. Turkey led early but the Nanticoke brothers made their way to the front quick. Brian got out to a big lead followed by Dan. Brian would hold off Dan for the feature win.
The Can Am Midgets were next for their second feature. Cory Whittam and Adrian Stahle led the field to green. Whittam led early and started to breakaway from the field. Stahle was gaining and made it close but as the checkers flew it was Whittam followed by Stahle and Deman.
The LOSC were next and once again due time constraints and and 11pm curfew, there race would be thirty laps. Doug Cathcart and Alvin McNichol were pole. Cathcart led early and was challenged by Chad McGlynn. Brandt Graham made his way to second and would take the lead as he got by Cathcart heading into three on lap fifteen. He would lead the rest of the way to pick up the win followed by McGlynn and Cathcart.
The last races of the night were for the Junior Late Models and Mini Trucks. Hannah Brown and Logan White led the field to green. Brown led the first three laps. A couple cautions on laps four and six brought the cars back to even and when the dust cleared the 44 of Jacob Campbell was the new leader. As the checkers flew it was a clean sweep on the night for Campbell winning this one followed by Brent Small and Logan White.
The Mini Trucks were led to green for the final race of the night by Bubba Brown and Cole Pirie. Pirie led lap one but Kevin Stark made his way from near the rear of the field to take the lead and build a big advantage over the rest of the pack to also make a clean sweep on the night followed by Rob Broadhurst and Tanner Pirie.
That brought to a close a very exciting and action packed night of racing. Please make plans to join us this Monday, August 21st for the Gold Rush 100 for Outlaw Super Late Models. At least two dozen cars are confirmed with several from the U.S.A. The winner will get $5000 and if they decide to go to the rear of the field and come back to win they could take another $5000. Also lots of secondary cash prizes. We also have a Pure Stock Invitational with $500 to the winner as well as other cash prizes. You won’t want to miss this one. Pits open at 3pm, front gates at 5pm with racing at 7pm. Check the website for all the details.

Dan Nanticoke Wins Big On Pro Four Modified Memorial Night

Posted on Posted in '17 News
By Randy Spencer for Flamboro Speedway – The annual Pro Four Modified night was on tap along with a few extra features from the rain out on July 22nd at Bennett Chevrolet Flamboro Speedway.
Originally all four features were to run on this night but a change was made and the Late Models and Mini Stocks would run tonight and the Super Stocks and Pro Fours will run their extra features on August 26th.
Racing got underway with the two rain out features up first. Matt Young and Rich Schwartzenberg led the field of fifteen to green in the twenty lap feature. Schwartzenberg led early. He was holding off the field with a battle building up behind him between Shawn Taylor and Allie Ditner. Taylor was second but Ditner, who started fifth was soon up to second and would take the lead through 1-2 on lap ten. As the cars were taking the white flag, Jake Gilbert found his way to the lead pack and the three battled hard through 1-2 and Gilbert got past to take the lead and pick up the first checkered flag of the night.
Late Models were next. Thirteen cars took the green and pole sitter Jeff Ruddy was the early leader. As the race progressed Mark Burbridge was challenging Ruddy at every turn. They battled for several laps close,  Ruddy was around in four on lap 20 bringing out a caution. That would put Burbridge up front along side Kevin Albers for the restart. The final ten laps were a good battle but Burbridge showed he had just a little more and picked up the win.
We got into our regular portion of the racing program with the Pure Stocks. Leo Labarbera and Mark Dennis were up front and Labarbera led one and points leader Doug Moir was first next time past. At the start of the night, Moir held an eight point lead over second place car of Mark Thorne. The raced progressed and the 81 of Rodney Rutherford was pushing Moir hard. He would take the lead through 3-4 on lap seven and wouldn’t be challenged the rest of the way picking up the victory.
Super Stocks were next Carson Nagy and points leader Nick Troback leading the field to green. Troback held a six point advantage on the 31 team of Brandan McFerran/Kevin Gallant heading into action. Troback led early but a caution early on but a caution as the 97 car of Austin Penney lost a part in three and he came to a stop heading into one. Looked like maybe a drive shaft and there was some fluid down so the red flag came out as the track clean up staff quickly cleaned the track. On the restart Brad Collison was lined up beside Troback. Collison would lead a couple laps but the two battled door to door before Troback regained the lead through 3-4 on lap twelve. As the checkers flew it was Troback made it three wins in a row to pad his points lead.
Russ Aicken would head into the night with the biggest lead in any point standing with a 56 point cushion on his next closest competitor, Allie Ditner. Aicken was away on this night so his team mate Nick Roth was behind the wheel. Roth led lap one and he and Rich Schwartzenberg would lead the field and start to put some distance in between themselves and the rest of the pack. Ditner caught Schwartzenberg and would get by for second on lap thirteen and then Jake Gilbert would overtake Ditner a few laps later. They would keep it close and as the cars came out of four with the checkers in sight, Roth would show he hasn’t lost the touch narrowly edging Gilbert and Ditner at the line. Very close finish in this one as the three were no more than a few car lengths apart.
Late Models were next with Kevin Albers and Mark Burbridge leading the pack. Albers led one and he started to breakaway from the field. But before long Shawn Chenoweth was on his bumper. They would breakaway from the rest until a caution in 1-2 as Burbridge was around spilling some fluid. Billy Schwartzenberg was around as well and the 63 of Hudson Nagy was up on the side of Schwartzenberg. Burbridge wouldn’t continue but Schwartzenberg would hit the pits but make it back out albeit with some extensive body damage. On the restart the two leaders once again broke from the pack. A caution on lap 25 wouldn’t faze Albers however as he lead flag to flag to pickup the feature win.
The Pro Fours were up and they had twelve cars out for Memorial Night. Nice to see Dan Nanticoke back after he was injured after last weeks second feature. Gillian Hils and Brian Nanticoke were on the pole and Nanticoke led early. But Dan showed no ill effects and he would pass brother Brian into three on lap five and would soon build a half track lead. A late caution didn’t matter as Nanticoke still would pick up the win.
After intermission it was the Pure Stocks out first. John Ditner and Eric Crow were pole and Crow led early. Clinton Kerkhof was outside of row two and he and Crow would battle and break from the pack. Kerkhof would get past Crow for the lead a few laps later but soon feature one winner Rodney Rutherford was banging on Kerkhof’s back door. He would get by and was the new leader and the battle was for second and third between Kerkhof and Doug Moir. As the checkers flew it was Rutherford first followed by Moir and Kerkhof.
Super Stocks hit the track and it was Shawn Arnott lining up beside his nemesis Chris Howse. Arnott was hoping to have better luck in this one after a broken sway bar saw him finish ninth in feature one. Arnott led early and put some distance between himself and the next pack of cars. He would lead  and seem sure of victory but a caution as Brad Collison was around out of four on lap seventeen. Carson Nagy and Nick Troback had no where to go and the three were into it. Troback and Collison were able to continue but Nagy was off on the hook. On the restart, Arnott continued to lead and would lead flag to flag for the win followed by Howse and Brandon McFerran.
Mini Stocks were next and this was by far the most interesting tilt of the night. And that it was, a tilt. Rich Schwartzenberg and Kyle Istead were pole and Schwartzenberg led one. An early caution as the 77 of Mike Hooper was into Istead at the front of the pack and it collected several cars including Rodney Rutherford, Jonathan Ayrton, Kaitlyn Wallace and Michael Kenny. Shame for Kenny, once again he received some significant damage and was done for the night. Same for Wallace as she had a rough night as she was off on the hook. Several laps later down the front stretch the 03x of Bob Gilbert and 71 of Nick Roth were into it. As the 71 sat backwards just off the grass beyond the start finish line, Gilbert ran at him and then circled like a bull and was warned to knock off the antics and he headed pit side as did Roth with some severe damage to the suspension and rear axle. Bob Gilbert was DQ’d for his actions. Please watch the video to see for yourself. On the restart, Jake Gilbert and Allie Ditner battled but it was Gilbert taking the checkers. After the race in tech, Gilbert had a total DQ for the night.
Late Models were out for their third thirty lap feature on the night. Blair Wickett and Billy Schwartzenberg were pole. Schwartzenberg led early and he and Shawn Chenoweth were the class of the field and they broke away. On lap six and seven, three cars hit the pits and would not finish. After a strong start to the night Mark Burbridge luck was not so good in the race two and three and he was done for the night. Blair Wickett and race two winner Kevin Albers were also finished. A caution on lap 17 as Bill Pearsall was around in two and Chenoweth was the new leader on the restart. Schwartzenberg slowed and he took it to the pits as well. Chenoweth wouldn’t be challenged and picked up the feature win.
Last race of the night was for the Pro Four Modifieds. Gillian Hils and Aaron Turkey were pole. Hils led lap one but Dan Nanticoke was on a mission. He wanted to win both on this night. And he wouldn’t disappoint as he once again had a half track lead and picked up the win.
That would bring to a close a very exciting and hard fought night of racing at Bennett Chevrolet Flamboro Speedway. Please make sure you make plans to join us next Saturday, August 19th for $10.00 admission at the main grandstand. An extra race has been just added as the Lucas Oil Sportsman Series will have a make up 100 lap race from a rained out event August 12th at Peterborough Speedway. Also on hand will be the Super Stocks, Mini Stocks, Pure Stocks, Pro Four Modifieds and the Lucas Oil Can Am Midgets. Check the website for all the details, www.flamborospeedway.ca

And DON’T FORGET, Monday August 21st is the Gold Rush 100…100 laps for Outlaw Super Late Models with lots of cash prizes including up to $10,000 for the winner. Also a Pure Stock Invitational, $500 for the win.

Young Fans Big Winners At Kids Ride Night At Flamboro Speedway

Posted on Posted in '17 News
By Randy Spencer for Flamboro Speedway – Kids were the big winners as we celebrated the annual Kids Ride Night Saturday at Bennett Chevrolet Flamboro Speedway. Always a favorite night for young fans and racers alike, it was once again a huge success. BIG thanks to all the drivers that donated their time to make the dreams come true for so many young race fans. Also to all those that donated bikes, sixteen in all were given away and to all the others that donated prizes. This night wouldn’t be the huge success it is every year without your help. Also nice to see so many great fans, a big group from B.C and California as well as a couple all the way from the Netherlands at their first race in Canada. It was a great night for racing after the cloud and rain cleared mid afternoon.
Six different race divisions were on hand and we got started at 7pm with the Pure Stocks. Going into the night, Doug Moir held a slim 1 point advantage over Mark Thorne. This is going to likely go down to the last race of the season. And to make it more interesting, they both lined up side by side on the pole as they led the field to green. They battled back and forth and traded the lead early but as the checkers flew Moir came across first followed by Thorne and Leo Labarbera.
The Ontario Modifieds had nine cars signed in and they would run two heats. The first one was very exciting. Randy Hollingsworth led early but the 4 of Connor James made a great move to take the lead out of two on lap six. But that would be short lived as James and Hollingsworth got mixed up in the next corner bringing out the caution and a green, white, checkered finish. Brad Stevenson was the leader on the restart and picked up the win. The second heat didn’t have the same intensity but still a great race and Duane Cinnamon was the winner.
Super Stocks were next and this division has grown as the season has progressed and there were 13 cars signed in tonight. And if you thought the points race was close in Pure Stocks with a one point gap, well this one is tied. The 31 team of Brandon McFerran and Kevin Gallant are tied at 824 points with Chris Howse. Nick Troback has 821 so it’s easy to see why it’s been such an exciting year and drivers doing whatever they can to get an advantage. Young Carson Nagy was pole with Troback on his outside. Troback led lap one and would lead until the pack was back to even when A.J. Miller brought out a caution on lap four. Troback continued to lead but another caution on lap 13 as the 8 of R.J. Croteau was smoking and missed the black flag so the caution flew. On the restart, a determined Troback continued to lead followed very closely by Gallant, Shawn Arnott and Howse. Arnott and Howse were battling for position and they came together down the front stretch into one and Howse went around bringing out the caution. Arnott and Howse joined the back of the pack for the restart and Troback once again was the leader and he would lead flag to flag to pick up the win. A great race by Joe Trafford got him a second place finish followed by Gallant, Nagy and Arnott.
Pro Four Modifieds hit the track for their first fifteen lap feature. Larry Westwood and Mark Lucas led the cars to green and Lucas was the early leader. He was real fast on the night but Dan Nanticoke would be on his bumper. A caution on lap three as Vic Devries was around and Gillian Hils had no where to go and was into Devries and she was off on the hook. On the restart, Lucas and Nanticoke were battling and as they came across the line it was even. Lucas fell off the pace however and soon retired to the infield. Nanticoke was the leader and was checked out and gone and would win the feature followed by brother Brian and Dan Petit.
The Canadian Vintage Modifieds were here once again and after a crash last week that left some major damage to the Steve Trendell 57 car, he was all set to go. Lucky thirteen cars were signed in and ready for battle. Jeremy Barton and Bill Stoner sat on the pole. Some bad feelings off the start as the cars entered turn one and the 00 of Jason Bowden made contact with Stoner and sent the 88 into the wall in turns one and two. Stoner exited his car and was pointing at Bowden’s car letting him know his displeasure on what had just occurred. Stoner unfortunately was finished for the night with too much damage to fix. On the complete restart it was Mike Podd leading early followed closely by veteran Ron Easton. Podd continued to lead but it was a close tight race as he led Easton, Jason Keen, Steve Trendell and T.J. Marshall in a nose to tail freight train the entire race. Each was waiting for Podd to falter but that wouldn’t occur and nice to see Podd get the monkey off his back and take the checkers.
The Mini Stocks were the last race before intermission and the bike giveaways. Rodney Rutherford and Matt Young were out front. Rutherford led early and points leader Russ Aicken was right there on his bumper after starting third in the field. They were door to door down the back stretch on lap five and Aicken would assume the lead. On lap ten, the bad luck continued for the 07 of Michael Kenny. His season has been a whole lot of bad luck but they continue to make it out every week. A rear tire came lose and off it went rolling down the track around one and two and came to rest almost where Kenny came to a stop. He won’t battle for the points championship this season but should surely compete for the best looking car and easily win the hard luck award. On the restart the engine on the 76 car of ShawnTaylor car let go. He had such bad luck last season and early on this year but turned it around and was having a good season and is running third in points with 876 behind Aicken (937) and Allie Ditner (889). A smoke show and fluid trail would follow and a red flag came out as the track crew would put down speedy dry and it was cleaned rather quick and ready to resume. Aicken continued to lead followed closely by the 86 of Erik Dalla Riva. He would make a good effort but couldn’t over take the 71 car of Aicken who would pick up the checkers. Dalla Riva was second followed by Rutherford. Shame to see so many torn up race cars. They say Rubbin’ is Racin’ but several cars looked a mess. The 84 of David Gallinger had a lot of damage to the body of his car but always comes out with a great looking car the next week. Lots of drivers will be spending time making repairs this week.
An extended intermission as lots of young fans won bicycles. On restarting the Pure Stocks were first off. John Ditner and Ross Winters Jr. were on the pole. Ditner led lap one and Matt Fraser was the leader next time by. He would lead a few laps and would have Jeff Bean and Gary Slama on his tail. Before long Eric Crow found the lead pack and was on Fraser’s bumper and was the leader on lap six as Fraser went high in four and Crow took to the bottom to get by. Slama would take over second out of four on lap ten followed by the 23 of Doug Moir. As the checkers flew it was Crow followed by Slam and Moir. That will give Moir a slight lead over Thorne who finish seventh in this one.
Super Stocks hit the track and Shawn Arnott didn’t make the call. That would put Carson Nagy and Kevin Gallant on the pole. Nagy led early but Nick Troback was on rails and he soon found the leader and by lap four was the new leader. He dominated and as the checkers flew it was Troback sweeping the night. Gallant was second followed by Nagy, Joe Trafford and Chris Howse.
Pro Fours were up and Dan Petit and Mark Lucas led them to green. As in the first race Lucas was in a rocket ship and seemed to be the only car that had anything for Dan Nanticoke on the night. He was dominating and a few cautions wouldn’t faze Lucas as he continued to lead. But out of four on lap ten as in the first race, the car slowed out of four and retired to the infield and that gave Nanticoke the lead and he would dominate again and sweep the night. Dan Petit was second followed by Brian Nanticoke. A scary incident as Nanticoke was leaving victory circle. The next race for the CVM were coming onto the track. I didn’t see it, just heard the crowd gasp as Nanticoke and the 11 car of Rob Clarke collided as Nanticoke left the infield. The car sustained some severe rear end damage and Nanticoke exited the car in some distress. He was treated by ambulance and Hamilton EMS transported him to hospital for further observation. I hear he is ok, was released after getting quite a few staple stitches and his wrist and hand are pretty sore. The car will be fixed, hope Dan makes a speedy recovery and gets back soon.
The Canadian Vintage Modifieds were next and after a short delay with the accident clean up. Ten cars instead of eleven made the green after Rob Clarke had too much damage to continue. Patrick Reulens and Jason Bowden were out front and Reulens led early but T.J. Marshall would get past with a slick move heading into three on lap three. Steve Trendell followed Marshall through and they battled for several laps. Jason Keen was on Trendell’s bumper for most of that time and he finally got by in three on lap 14. Marshall continued to lead with Keen knocking on his back door but Marshall held him off and took the win. Keen was second, Trendell third followed by Reulens and Mike Podd had a good night overall with a fifth and a win in the first race.
Ontario Modifieds hit the track and a caution on lap two as Chris Burrows and Duane Cinnamon were involved in turn two bringing a caution as both cars were off on the hook. The decision was made due to time restraints and just six cars left, the race would be 15 laps instead of 20. Some miscommunication may have been a benefit on the restart as some cars didn’t appear ready for the restart and that allowed the 4 of Connor James to shoot out to the lead and it was growing even though the 77 Brad Stevenson did all he could to close it. But he ran out of laps and it was James coming across first followed by Stevenson and Rick Warnes.
Last race of the night was for the Mini Stocks. Kaitlyn Wallace and Mike Hooper were pole. Hooper led lap one but Rodney Rutherford was the new leader second time past. He would dominate although Erik Dalla Riva who started behind Rutherford on the original green never let the 38 far from his sights. The real show was a bit further back as Bob Gilbert was battling Russ Aicken for every inch. Tried as he may, Aicken just couldn’t get by the elder Gilbert. The checkers would fly as Rutherford was first followed by Dalla Riva, Jake Gilbert, Bob Gilbert, Matt Young and Aicken.
That brought to a close a great night of racing at Bennett Chevrolet Flamboro Speedway. Thanks again to all the drivers and to the great fans for making it a fun night. Please join us next Saturday, August 12th for lots of racing.
