Saturday Not Entirely A Wash At ACMS

The skies were threatening all day Saturday around Auto Clearing Motor Speedway. A late morning shower delayed practice sessions for the Big Bore Drilling Super Truck Racing series.

When practice did get underway the track was fast and several trucks were running in the high 14 second mark. Thoughts were another track record would fall today when the official time trials started, but that would not happen as the best the #20 of Neil Fitzgerald from Wainwright could muster out of his super truck was a 15.185 second lap.

Calgary’s Wade Lee, back piloting the #74 super truck after a couple of years off picked up wins in both super truck heat races, while #20 of Neil Fitzgerald was leading the Big Bore Drilling Super Trucks main feature race when the skies let loose in the 44th lap of 100, canceling the rest of the race show for the night.

Racing veteran Jim Barnsley has not been behind the wheel of a mini stock for nearly four years, but he looked right at home Saturday as he picked up the win in the Kreepy Kritterz Pest Control heat race with the #41 mini stock. The #95 of Robin Boomsma was back out in front at the finish line for the mini stock qualifier race.

The FFUN Motor Group pro trucks had four different winners Saturday as the #19 of Aaron Anderson took the win in the first heat, while the #15 of Andrew Hardy was first across the line in the second heat. #18 Bill Zubrecki took checkers in the first qualifier race and #49 Shantel Firth picked up a win in the second qualifier.

As mentioned earlier the night was cut short by mother nature, meaning the Kreepy Kritterz Pest Control mini stocks and the FFUN Motor Group pro truck division did not get their feature races in. Double features will be scheduled for both divisions on a future race night.

Next week is the first race of the season for the Dakota Dunes Western Canadian Super Late Model Championship Series. Super Late models from across Saskatchewan, Alberta and Montana are expected to descend on Saskatoon next Saturday for the Dakota Dunes 150. Prize monies of up to $80,000.00 is available to drivers participating in the series.

Joining the Dakota Dunes series is the Brock Salvage Street Stock division and the Earth Works Sask Legends Series. Racing is Saturday June 14, with the front gates opening at 4:30pm and the first green flag at 6:05. See you there!
