The 2014 season at Barrie Speedway came to an UN-Happy ending. Mother Nature was determined to pick the Regular season Champions the previous week and was thwarted, She would have HER revenge by raining on and wrecking the season finale.

Barrie Speedway staff and ALL the drivers did their best to try and wait out the rain with several hours of stop and start rain delay’s. We got in some racing but eventually the weather proved too big a Dragon to Slay and the evening was cancelled with much controversy. The weather forecast for Sunday was not favourable and with several tracks running events the next 4 weekends in a row, the decision was made to bid adieu to the Garry Reynolds Memorial event for this year.

Sorry Garry.

On the last regular season race night, Mother Nature toyed with the idea, that SHE was going to determine the 2014 Division Champions, but the BSW faithful pursued and won out in the end, getting in the Full Show and Crowning our deserving Champions.

 

Congratulations to The Barrie Speedway 2014 Champions…

Of course the racing was not without a wee bit of carnage as a large crash to start the St. Onge Recreation Pure Stocks, ended the night of a few fast win contenders.

The Finale of the evening was the annual mechanics race which is always entertaining. The only scary moment was when the #27 of Ashlie Reckzin tried to redesign the Corner 2 track configuration, She was not successful. The good news is She was not hurt and the evening ended with Championship celebrations in the pits.

Congratulations to the Feature Winners…

Like CCR sang, there was a Bad Moon Arisin’ at Barrie Speedway on Saturday August 9th. The second Super Moon of the Summer lived up to it’s nasty reputation, with some fenders and feelings hurt.

Wow, Summer is moving fast… Here we are into August already. A Rain-out on July 26th made everyone a little hungry for some Barrie Speedway Race action, and they weren’t disappointed.

Ever increasing car counts gave the fans a little more to cheer about. Al “Red Rocket” Inglis broke out the Booster’s and it really was a Rocket as he won the first Wahta Springs Limited Late Model feature on the night and his first trip to the top of the podium in two years.

Even Gord Shepherd’s Crew celebrated with Al… Although I don’t think Al was aware. LOL

Congratulations to the Feature Winners…

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.

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…
