All Set For Round Four At ACMS

Auto Clearing Motor Speedway along with their corporate sponsor are gearing up for Round 4 of racing, Saturday June 8th, at 6:00pm!

The Dakota Dunes Casino Western Canadian Super Late Model Championship Series hit the track for the first time this season with the Interstate Batteries 150!

Blazin’ Start To Saturday Night Racing

Interesting.  That is one way of describing the racing Saturday night at Auto Clearing Motor Speedway.  Although there was a reserved nervousness with so many rookies on the track, the racers kept it clean.  There was little fiberglass to clean up, but safety officials had to deal with three fires as the night went on.

The Big Bore Directional Drilling Super Trucks spent the afternoon feeling out the track and their new Hoosier tires as they make their first trip around the oval in 2013.  At the end of the two 45 minute practice sessions, times were pretty much predictable based on experience.  One stand out was Dexter Hucul, who made the jump from Legends to super trucks this year.  He was running mid–pack lap times in what he described as a tank to roll around the track compared to the legends car he drove the past few years.

Safety crews were forced into action as the first Sportsman practice was drawing to a close.  The #93  Burco Electrical Contractors Dodge Avenger of Neil Schneider burst into flames as it barrelled down the front straight, coming to a stop high in corner two with smoke pouring out of the engine compartment and cab.  A gasket had blown out of the oil cooler, spraying oil on the exhaust.  The resulting fire spread into the wiring harness, taking heavy smoke into the driver cabin.

First Time Under The Lights At ACMS

 Round 3 of the season at Auto Clearing Motor Speedway will go tonight at 6pm at the track. It’s the first night of the season under the lights!

It’s also the first race of the season for the Super Trucks and the BIG BORE 100!

Also on the track will be the MidWest Combustion Sportsmans, the Earthworks Sask. Legends and the Budget Car and Truck Rental Street Stocks.

Races Beat Out The Weather For A Full Day At ACMS:

The weather gods shone down on the Auto Clearing Motor Speedway Saturday afternoon, allowing a full slate of racing to take place.  Radar showed
rain all around the track, but race officials were only worried once as
a light shower threatened one of the pro truck heat races.  The tires
were already warm though, allowing the race to finish and the shower had
passed by the time the mini stocks took to the track.

Saturday was the season opener for the WSSL Auto Parts Super Late Model
Division, which proved tough for a few drivers.  Brothers Ian and Kelly
Admiraal made the haul all the way from Edmonton, only to have rough
finishes.
