Canada 200 winners crowned in Langford

Western Speedway hosts season-ending races for late models, stock cars

Wade Bland, Bob Kuhn and Tim Graham wound up the big winners in Western Speedway’s annual Canada 200 weekend feature main events.

Bland took the checkered flag in the late model class 200-lap season-ending championship race on Sunday, beating Brandon Carlson to the line by a comfortable four-second margin.

Right on Carlson’s tail, in order, were Aaron Wilkie, Shaun Ross and Bob Williams, all of whom were just over two seconds apart.

Kuhn captured Sunday’s 95-lap stock car main by less than half a second over second-place finisher Dave Reside. Wayne Hart finished a close third, while Mike Haslam wound up fourth.

In Saturday’s 75-lap stock car main, Graham edged Haslam to the finish line for the win, while Kuhn and Hart finished third and fourth, respectively.
