Day tops driver standings

For the second straight year, Glen Day of Port Hardy was crowned track champion at Tri-Port Speedway.

PORT HARDY—For the second straight year, Glen Day of Port Hardy was crowned track champion at Tri-Port Speedway without even firing up his engine on the final day of the season.

Indeed, the track was rather better suited for speed-boat racing on the scheduled final day of competition Oct. 6.

“The track looked like a lake,” track timer Darlene Cartwright said with a laugh.

The season was called complete with the cancellation of the day’s races, and Day, who had previously build up a large lead in the track season points series, was awarded his second straight track championship.

“We’ll just set our sights on next season, and we’re looking for lots of participation then,” said Cartwright. “We had several new drivers this season, and hear there may be some more interested in running in a mini (stock) class.”

The Tri-Port Motor Sports Club welcomes new competitors and volunteers. Anyone interested in volunteering or more information can contact Cartwright at 250-949-6174 or Theresa Weeks at 250-949-7273.
