Hornets hibernate until final

Season championship races set for Sept. 14 at Western Speedway

With the last regular Wednesday session of Hornet racing in the books at Western Speedway, the only thing left for this class are the season championship races on Sept. 14.

Brad Aumen and Kevin Boyce topped the field in last week’s main events, winning the 30-lap A main event and 25-lap B main, respectively.

Aumen, who earlier finished third in the seventh heat race, crossed first in the main ahead of (in order) Glenn Rand, Gennifer Isles and Cam Stanfield.

Boyce, who also won the C trophy dash and was fourth in his heat race, came out ahead of Bill Ganner, Ryan Alexander and Shea Mellors.

Other double winners on the night included Mitch Melin in the A trophy dash and seventh heat race, and Trevor Rowden in the B dash and second heat race.

Other heat race winners included Mellors, Stanfield, Jacob Spring, Ganner, Rand and Dave Fetherby. Fast qualifying time was recorded by Mike Tomley with a 15.282-second lap.

The championship night will see the Hornets join the demo cars ands trucks, bombers, mini figure 8s, and Capital City Drifting in determining 2015 season champions.

This coming weekend’s (Aug. 29) racing card features all of those groups plus the only appearance this season of the North American Big Rigs, Qualifying starts at 5:30 p.m. with racing underway at 6:30 p.m. Visit westernspeedway.net for more details.
