One more turn for stocks

Rain again causes a postponement for the stock season finale.

PORT HARDY— Lightning may not strike twice, but the North Island rain sure does.

The Tri-Port Motor Sports Club’s season ender was due this weekend, the second of two rain dates to make up for races cancelled because of inclement weather. Mother Nature had other plans, however, and grey clouds and drizzle put paid to Sunday’s planned event.

The drivers refused to let the gloom dampen their spirits though, and agreed to have one more attempt at settling the season standings on the track.

Race fans are invited to come out to the track this Saturday night— when early forecasts call for clear skies and a dry circuit — to see the drivers put the season to rest. Organizers recommend bringing a blanket and sweater to ward off the fall chill, and the concession stand will be open to supply the crowd with burgers and hot coffee too.

There’s still plenty to race for, too. While the top three are comfortably out in front of the rest of the field, the order on the podium can still change depending on how the final session plays out. Glen Day leads the pack with 465 points, Justin Reusch is is second at 407, and Daniel Hovey is breathing down his neck with 401.

The hot laps are scheduled to start at 7 p.m. at Tri-Port Speedway. With the season standings on the line, it promises to be a hard-fought session and a great night for race fans.
