Racing champs to be crowned

The 2014 season is winding down at Western Speedway

Speed will be the name of the game Saturday (Sept. 13) at Western Speedway, as the Wilroc non-wing sprint cars, stock cars, mini-stocks, Old-Time Racers and dwarf cars contest their year-end championships.

Time trials get underway at 5:30 p.m. with racing underway at 6:30.

The rest of the racing classes have their grand finale next weekend, but on Sept. 6 they provided plenty of action for the fans.

Demo car driver Greg Sagmoen took top spot in the combined cars/trucks 20-lap feature main, followed in order by Aasen Baker, Jim Young and Mike Melin. Sagmoen also won the trophy dash and was second behind Joe Liberatore in the cars heat race. Baker won both the trophy dash and heat race amongst the trucks.

Kevin Lawrenuk was the man to beat in the Hornet class, capturing the 20-lap main, trophy dash and B heat race. Daryl Cahill placed second in the main, followed by Brad Aumen and Dave Isles.

Kail Beck took home the trophy for winning the 40-lap main among the Mini Figure 8 cars, beating out Rhett Szevics, Phil Lagan and Kyle Rizok, in that order. Tanner Jacobs and Dennis Smith won the two heat races while Hilary Degraf took the trophy dash.

In the bomber car finale, a 35-lap affair, Brian Wakelin won the race to the finish ahead of second-place finisher Brian Baltis, Aaron Cameron in third and Sam Lagan in fourth. Rounding out the top eight, in order, were Ron Benham, Tony Kambo, Stuart Campbell and Bobby Cyr.

Other bomber winners included Rich Gerhardt in the trophy dash and second heat race, and Campbell in the first heat race.
