Morrises capture Twin 50s at Western Speedway

Langford track hosted late models and more for Saturday bill

Geoff and Brent Morris were tough to beat in The Keg Late Model series races Saturday at Western Speedway.

Geoff battled Wade Bland for the last 40 or so laps in the first of two 50-lap features, eventually winning by a car length.

Brent had a less stressful time winning the second main event, surging to the front of the pack on a lap 6 restart and building a comfortable lead that he never relinquished.

Other feature main winners on the night included Brandon French in the Island dwarf cars, Ryan Patterson in IMS4 mini-stocks, Doug Richens in the Old-Time Racers and Spencer Carlson in stock cars.
