After Torrential Rains… Okay, Constant Drizzle All Day on Saturday September 7, 2013, Barrie Speedway was finally able to host the NASCAR Canadian Tire Series, HUDCO 300 race.

With the Clear Skies and Bright Sunshine, the conditions were perfect for a Great Race… and that it was.

Congratulations to #3 Jason Hathaway on his trip to Victory Lane. It was well deserved.

As a personal note, I would like to say that I prefer to see the NASCAR Canadian Tire Series races at Barrie Speedway run during Daylight Hours and hope that the sanctioning body does this in 2014. The lighting makes the whole experience look better and it makes for some pretty good Television.

It’s hard to recognize some of these people without the Helmets, and dressed in their Fines, but a Great Time was had by all at the 2013 Barrie Speedway Banquet held at the Casino RAMA hall on November 9, 2013.

There were plenty of Trophies, Plenty of Cheques Handed Out, plenty of Food, Fun, Friends and a Whole Mess of Stories about the 2013 season told. Even NASCAR sent video of some Driver Well Wishes.

Congratulations to all the Hardware Haulers and especially to our 2013 Champions…

It was a Fantastic Capper to the 2013 Season at Barrie Speedway. A Great Car Count in All Three Divisions made it a Very Successful Finale for Drivers and Fans alike.

The big question was if #51 Mike Bentley would be able to Three-Peat the Garry Reynolds Memorial Race in the Limited Late Model Division. The Sunset Speedway Season Champion has won every Garry Reynolds event since it’s inception. While Bentley was strong, the #51 could not hold off a late race pass by the #48 of Dwayne Baker who ultimately captured the Checkered Flag after the 100 Lap Feature was over.

Congratulations to All the Winners on the Day…

Limited Late Model Winner, #48 Dwayne Baker

Thunder Car Winner, #39 Travis Hallyburton,

and Pure Stock Winner, #10 Doug Butler.

A HUGE Thank You to ALL the Visiting Drivers who came out to Honour the late Garry Reynolds and the Reynolds Family.

It started as a Dank, Dreary Day with Rain and Dark Clouds… Then a peak of light sky. Was Mother Nature a Race Fan today after all?

Barrie Speedway Staff and Clean-up Crew worked feverishly to dry the track… 1 Hour… 2 Hours… Dry.

Time to practice.

Alright… Practice Over… Barrie Speedway Wahta Springs Late Model Time Trials…

…Then the Rains Came.

Several more Hours of Track Drying was like Shoveling Sand with a Fork. All for Naught. Rained Out.

The latest in NASCAR Canadian Tires Series Drivers Suits were introduced, to No Avail, the race would have to be run on Sunday September 8, 2013.

As Summer draws closer to an end, There is still plenty of racing action at Barrie Speedway. Saturday night was no exception.

With Nothing to Lose and Plenty to Gain, Drivers in all divisions are looking to Gain positions in the standings and maybe get a little payback for events earlier in the year.

The evening had a visit from the Barrie Thunder Classic Cars, Who treated the fans to some pretty cool looking Classic Cars in a few parade laps after an entertaining, as usual, King of the Hill.

Perfect Weather for a Hurricane !!!

Bright Sunshine, Warm Temperatures, and the Barrie Speedway faithful couldn’t ask for more, but MORE is what they got.

A Category E (As in EXCITEMENT) Hurricane roared into area and left everyone reeling from the speed. The Hurricane Midgets Racing Club made their one and only stop at the track and added to an already fantastic Barrie Speedway show.

It was a Grand night to KICX 106 it up… and that’s just what we did at Barrie Speedway on August 10th, 2013.

It was Grand Weather and Grand Fans, and an appearance from a Grandson.

Garry Reynolds Grandson Jordan Latimer made his first appearance in the Canestoga Property Maintenance Thunder Cars, piloting car #41. We wish Jordan as much success as His Grandfather had at Barrie Speedway and we look forward to adding his name up along side Garry’s on the BSW Wall of Champions.

It was also a night of Firsts in the Wahta Springs Limited Late Models. Both Feature winners were First Timers.

The #91 Andre Pepin put in a solid run to capture his first Feature win and the #24 Leonard Johnston was in a area code of his own in the second feature. As a matter of Fact, Leonard was so unfamiliar with the Winner’s Circle that He absconded with the Checkered Flag and refused to give it back. I guess we know what Leonard would do for a Klondike Bar !!!

Congratulations to the Feature Winners…

Perfect Race weather drew a Perfect Crowd of spectators to Barrie Speedway on August 3 Wahta Springs night.

Things started with a little misfortune, as the #20 Thundercar of Luke Gignac had an engine expire during practice putting him into the wall. The damage was enough to end his night. It also collected the #00 of Darryl St. Onge, who had some major front end damage that looked to keep him from the night’s racing, but with everyone pitching in, in the pits, St. Onge was able to get out to compete.

Congratulations to the Feature Winners…
