Purdey wins at Saratoga

Brad Purdey of Port McNeill won the first two heats in modified racing to kick off the 2011 season at Saratoga Raceway in Campbell River, but mechanical issues prevented him from completing the clean sweep.

Purdy jumped in front and led for nine laps in the 15-lap main event before being forced to withdraw on the May 30 opening night.

Kevin Noble went on to claim the win.

In the reverse-start heat, Purdy came from the back to battle Dano Bryant for the top spot before settling for second place behind Bryant.
