Fox’s Bakery usually has the Best Rolls at Barrie Speedway, but on July 19th, Desi Walt tried with a Roll of her own. The #21 Industrial Commutator Thunder Car got into the #37 Abstract Hair Salon of Robbie Sikes and started to tumble down the track to the Horror of fans. Desi was extracted through the roof of the car and taken to the Hospital. She was checked out, cleared and was back at the track before the evening ended, to the relief of everyone in attendance.

The Lucas Oil Can-Am Midgets, were visiting and everyone  was ready to out run the rain that was on it’s way. We did not get away totally unscathed by Mother Nature, but we did get all the racing completed.

With a Full Moon dubbed the Super Moon looming large over the Barrie Speedway track… okay it was hidden behind a bank of clouds pretty much all night… and that was a Good Thing. It was Great Clean Racing. Oh, there were a few minor bumps on the track, but all seemed to be race incidents with no malice intended.

Congratulations to the Feature Winners…

It was the Crowning of the Barrie Speedway Mid Season Champions Dedicated to the Late Car Owner/Engine Builder Ron MacLennan, who passed away earlier this season, with extended Feature Races in all divisions.

Congratulations to the Mid Season Champs …

Wahta Springs Limited Late Models  #10 Gord Shepherd

The Race night began with  50 laps of Wahta Springs Limited Late Model Action and a Great Door to Door battle to the Stripe between “The Teacher” Gord Shepherd and “The Student” Rick Walt, with Walt claiming bragging rights.

Then 45 laps of  St. Onge Recreation Pure Stocks with 42 laps of Green flag racing from the 20 plus car starting field… at Lap 43 the Big One Happened gathering up two thirds of the field, after the Speedy Dry dust settled the dominant car of #10 Doug Butler emerged victorious.

Next up was the Triple Sick Skin Thunder Cars in their 50 lap Feature Race, with a decent race and a few cautions, Luke “Thunder Driver Extraordinaire” Gignac would continue to show what He could do with a very good car, claiming another victory sticker for the #00.

The Mayhem continued in the Final 50 lap Wahta Springs Limited Late Model feature with several cars sustaining damage as tempers were as hot as the weather. In the end Rick Walt claimed his 4th consecutive victory. I think we should start calling Walt, “Tim Horton” because He’s the King of the Double – Double, winning double features on 3 separate occasions this season.

Congratulations to the Mid Season Feature Winners…

Big Rigs and 10′s were prominent at Barrie Speedway on Saturday June 21st for Mobil 1 Night.

With the Truck Show going on at Burl’s Creek next door, you know the Action on the Track was going to be as big as the Vehicles. Several Trucks took to the track for a Pre-Race parade lap.

Hmmm… Maybe we should have renamed the King of the Hill the King of the Road and had a couple of Semi-Truck Races. Are you listening Rick Hurst ??? LOL

Congratulations to the June 21st Feature Winners…

As the title suggests, It was Carnage, Chaos & Mayhem at Barrie Speedway on Saturday May 31st.

After some pretty fast and exciting heat racing and a very good Wahta Springs Limited Late Model Feature #1, it took a strange turn starting with a bizarre King of the Hill.

The highly popular King of the Hill had a few spins and a BIG ONE. An Aztek vehicle, Yep you read that right, an Aztek, pounded the wall in Turn 4 leaving the Fans cheering. The driver was unhurt and seemed to enjoy his notoriety, taking several bows to the crowd.

 The King of the Hill seemed to set the tone for the rest of the night.

Congratulations to the night’s Feature Winners/Survivors…
