Great Night For Racing At ACMS

The weather has been unsettled the last few days, but it didn’t stop the sun from shining down on Auto Clearing Motor Speedway on Saturday night as the Irv’s Westside Auto Super Trucks, WSSL Super Late Models and both the Golf’s Car Wash Street Stocks and Mini Stocks added to the trek towards the championship.

The Irv’s Westside Auto Super Trucks quickly showed why they continue to be a favorite racing series in Saskatoon. Rookie racers Kyle O’Connell and Brian Morrison immediately showed they fit right in with the fast and tight racing style of the super truck series. They were right in the mix with the veterans from the drop of the flags.

Heavy rains through week washed some of the rubber buildup off the track, and the trucks have changed tires from last year so there wasn’t any track records in danger this weeks. Dean Braham from Lloydminster started things off, timing in the #44 Cave Inspections Ltd Silverado quickest at 14.954 seconds.

The #00 Heartland Auto Supply Silverado of Sherwood Park’s Kevin Mclean pick up the first win in the super truck heat race, with the #27 of Scott Lucas and #07 of Brian Morrison in short chase. Calgary’s Wade Lee was back in front for the qualifier with his #74 Chase Motorsports Silverado, followed by Dean Braham and Scott Lucas.

In the Irv’s Westside Auto feature, the Academy B.O.P. 75, Dean Braham was back out front at the end of the exciting 75 laps race, bringing the #44 Cave Inspections Ltd Silverado first to the line, followed by Prince Albert’s Scott Lucas in the #27 Prairie Dodge Dealers Dodge Ram and Outlook’s Mike Schroeder in the #9 Always Towing Chevy for third.

Taking the track for their third race of the season, the Golf’s Car Wash Mini Stocks showed it’s going to be a battle right to the end of the year for champion. Tanner Reimer and the #25 The Results Team Honda Civic picked up the first heat win ahead of #41 Jamie Tataryn and #92 Brennan Kirton.

In the mini stock qualifier, #41 Jamie Tataryn with the Street Wise Service Neon took first, with #92 Brennan Kirton in second and #25 Tanner Reimer in third. Jamie also picked up the Golf’s Car Wash Mini Stock feature in the #41 Streetwise Service Neon, with the #23 of Cole Nixey in second and #25 Tanner Reimer rounding out the top three.

The #28 Ghost Transportation Camaro of Brennan Forseille picked up the heat win in the Golf’s Car Wash Street Stocks, getting home just ahead of #3 Kevin MacLaggan and #81 Curtis Houban. Kevin MacLaggan picked it up a notch, getting the #3 BDI Canada Trans Am to the line just ahead of the #28 Brennan Forseille in the street stock qualifier race. #18 Mike Rea rounded out the top three.

The Golf’s Car Wash Street Stock Feature race proved to be as exciting as every other race on the night. Leader Brennan Forseille was holding off challenger Kevin MacLaggan, but an outside-inside deek by MacLaggin found Kevin beside Forseille. It was MacLaggan by a foot when the white flag dropped, Forseiile was ahead through corners three and four, but MacLaggin powered ahead out of four, giving the #3 BDI Trams Am and Kevin MacLaggan the checkered flag by about a half car length. #28 Brennan Forseille was second and #42 Nicole Sheetka rounded out the top three in the Golf’s Car Wash feature.

The WSSL Auto Parts Plus Super Late Models put in their second race meet of the year, warming up for the first Sky Financial Series race in three weeks. #17 Rob Janzen picked up the win in Heat A in his 2015 J&A Heating and Plumbing Toyota Camry. Dave Bone and his #38 Acklands Grainger Chevrolet took Heat B.

In the Qualifier A race it was Jared Reddekopp and the #97 The Legends Golf Course Ford Fusion taking the win and Jason Gervais in his #88 Commercial Sandblasting Ford Fusion picked up the Qualifier B win.

It was Rob Janzen though, taking home the commemmorative ACMS checkered flag in the WSSL Auto Parts Plus Super Late Model Feature, piloting the #17 J&A Heating and Plumbing Toyota Camry to the line first. #56 Howie Crossman took second, with #55 Jim Gaunt third.

Things change course a little next week at Auto Clearing Motor Speedway, as rather than all the familiar faces we are used to on the race track, the Rusty Wallace Racing Experience takes over the race track next weekend, and it’s the race fans who get the chance to get behind the wheel of a NASCAR or Late Model car and try their hand at the track.

We’re back for a weeknight race, on Wednesday, June 24th with the Golf’s Car Wash Street Stocks, the WSSL Auto Parts Plus Super Late Models and the Tiger Automotive Pro Trucks. Front Gates open at 6:00pm, with the first green flag at 7:05pm

Race fans are also reminded to pick up their tickets for NASCAR week as we have three exciting nights of racing coming in mid July. Tuesday, July 14 will see the Golf’s Car Wash Street Stocks running the Wes Skakun Memorial race, the WSSL Auto Parts Plus Super Late Models run the Bryce Mann Memorial and the Tiger Automotive Pro Trucks will run the Tiger Automotive 100.

Wednesday night, July 15 will see the NASCAR Canadian Tire Series and the Velocity Prairie Thunder 250 presented by Bayer Crop Science and we finish the week off Saturday July 18 with the Golf’s Car Wash Mini Stock, the Earth Works Sask Legends Series, the CrimeStoppers Bandoleros and finally, the Shell Nitro+ V-Power Sportsman, running the Race For A Cure 100.
