Victories spread around in Daffodil Cup races

Langford's Western Speedway hosts busy weekend of sprint car racing

Four main events saw four separate winners in last weekend’s Daffodil Cup sprint car championships at Western Speedway.

On Saturday, Roseburg, Ore. native Andy Alber-ding won a race to the line in the 40-lap Wilroc winged  sprint car main event, outgunning a pack of four drivers that included Matt Hein, Ron Larson, Darren Yates and Jeff Montgomery, in order.

Robbie Price won the night before’s 30-lap main, beating out Hein, Alberding and Chris Schmelzie, in that order.

In the Wilroc Lites non-wing sprint car class, Dave Emmerson took the checkered flag in Saturday’s 30-lap feature race by a whisker ahead of Guy Barrett, with Mike Haslam hot on their heels in third. Stewart Lee wound up fourth. Haslam took the Friday night main ahead of Barrett, Emmerson and Ryan Orchard.

The Old Time Racers and dwarf car divisions also raced over the weekend. Find full results at westernspeedway.net.
