Reusch outduels Hovey at Tri-Port Speedway

PORT HARDY - Driver edges defending track champion in door-to-door stock car main event

Justin Reusch outdueled defending track champion Daniel Hovey to claim the main event Sunday in stock car racing action at Tri-Port Speedway in Port Hardy.

The pair went door-to-door for much of the race before Reusch prevailed.

The main mirrored the entire afternoon, as the two traded victories in a six-car field.

Hovey, racing for the first time this season, claimed the trophy dash and a Heat 2 victory. In between, Reusch won Heat 1.

The Tri-Port Motor Sports Club will be back in action on the quarter-mile oval this Sunday for its Father’s Day Race beginning at 1 p.m. All dads in the company of kids get free admission.

Other ticket prices are $5 for adults, $3 for youths and free for kids five and under.

 

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.
