Crashing And Banging and Racing Saturday at ACMS

There was something for everyone Saturday during the McDonald’s Family Day at Auto Clearing Motor Speedway as drivers from eight years of age to 60+ took to the track. New drivers to seasoned veterans with over 30 years of turning left were out for an afternoon of fun and entertainment.

Of course all six Bandolero drivers are new to racing. Ranging in age from eight to thirteen are Braxton Clewes, Ty Stewart, Kelsey Toth, Jaxen Gervais, Jasmine Speidel, and Ryley Schneider.

Ryan Purdy and Jared Reddekopp made their debut in the super late model division, while Grant Edwards, Les Harding and Greg Funk made the pull from various Alberta locations to shake down their late models in preparation for upcoming Dakota Dunes series races.

Nick Allen, Jason Hankewich and Scott Kessler were back on the track in Sportsman cars after taking a few years away from racing,

It was a seesaw battle all day in the Sask Legends series between Chelsey Wilson and Danny Meier. The #13 of Chelsey Wilson took the first heat race with #90 of Danny Meier taking the first Qualifier.
Meier tipped the scales in his favor winning the Saskatoon Earth Works Equipment Feature race with Wilson’s #13 coming in second. The #2 of Kerry Neufeld won both the heat and the qualifier he was racing in.

In the Bandolero division, Jaxen Gervais tried to make it a perfect day as he piloted the #24 to the quickest time trial of 20.652 seconds and checkered flags in the heat and qualifier. With Gervais leading most of the Bandolero Ritchie Bros Auction feature race, a late move by on the front straight saw the #22 of Kelsey Toth take over the lead and the win by under a second.

In the street stock division, Craig Katelinoff must has spent the week fine tuning his car as he took home all three checkered flags Saturday with wins in the street stock heat, qualifier and Brock Salvage feature.

In Sportsman action, Matthew Shirley timed the #46 in quickest at 15.628 seconds, but he wasn’t quite quick enough to beat the #21 of Nick Allen in the heat race. Shirley did find the sweet spot in his tuning though as he took wins with the #46 in the qualifier and the Midwest Combustion Sportsman feature.

In WSSL Auto Parts Plus super late model racing, Dave Bone put a kink in Jim Gaunt’s perfect afternoon. After the #55 of Jim Gaunt timed in quickest at 14.377 seconds, #38 Dave Bone took the win in the SLM heat race. The #55 of Jim Gaunt finished off the afternoon though in perfect style, picking up wins and a commemorative flag in the qualifier and the WSSL Auto Parts Plus SLM feature.

Next weekend sees the first of four stops by the Big Bore Drilling Super Truck Racing Series. The Super Trucks have an ambitious schedule with stops this year in Prince George and Hythe, but Saskatoon remains their base with four races scheduled.

Joining the super trucks are the Kreepy Kritterz Pest Control Mini Stocks and the FFUN Motor Group Pro Truck Division. It’s going to be a great evening of racing, with the first green flag Saturday, June 7 at
6:05 pm. Gates open at 5:00.
