Tristan Gait and Brandon Young were double winners in the two-night racing extravaganza at Western Speedway last weekend.
Packaged around the appearance of the monster trucks in a total destruction showcase, the demo cars and trucks, bomber cars and mini figure 8s had plenty of track time in the Friday-Saturday show.
Gait managed to win both nights’ 35-lap main events, having started out with the fast qualifying lap times both outings as well. Other bomber winners included Bill Gallacher in the Friday trophy dash and Saturday second heat race; Sean Whitley in the the Friday first heat and Saturday trophy dash (he was also second in Saturday’s main event); Brandon Steen in Friday’s second heat and Brian Wakelin in Saturday’s first heat race.
Young captured both main events in the figure 8s class, also having recorded fast time to start each night. He also won the second heat race Friday. Other winners were Trevor Cannon in Friday’s trophy dash and Saturday’s second heat race; Stephen Green in Friday’s first heat; Nolan Perry in Saturday;’s trophy dash and Gallacher in the first heat race Saturday.
Amongst the demo cars and trucks, George Haywood won Saturday’s combined main event, after finishing second behind Joe Liberatore the night before. Haywood also won Saturday’s cars-only heat race and had that day’s fast time, while Liberatore also picked up a win in Saturday’s cars-only trophy dash.
Other bomber winners were Cody Young in Friday’s car trophy dash and combined heat race, Billy Stidson in the truck trophy dash and heat races Saturday, and Rhett Smith in the truck trophy dash Friday.
This weekend’s action at the track in Langford features The Keg Late Model series with twin 50-lap main events, plus the non-wing sprint cars, stock cars and IMS4 mini stocks on the track Saturday (May 30).
