Two big events at Mission Raceway this weekend.
First up is the Les Petrin Memorial Hot Rod race Saturday
Also the BC Super Shifters Stick Shift Nationals
Les Petrin Hot rod race
Randy Kuryk got the win in the final round of the Les Petrin Memorial race on Saturday despite being a tenth back on the tree.
In a very cool final round, two Ford Fairlane's did battle. One from BC (Grant Klohn) and one from Washington State (Jim Gonia) . The Saturday winner was Grant Klohn from Victoria. Both drivers left heads up with Klohn getting a slight holeshot. He extended his lead all the way down track until Gonia lifted when it was apparent he was not going to catch Klohn. Scroll down for photos highlights of what was arguably the Wheelstand Nationals.
Jr. Street winner
Out of towners rolled in this weekend for the Jr challenge and two of them were in the final round. Washington's Anastazia Gossette took the win over Alberta's Kyle Skonsberg in the final round of Jr. Thunder.
Jr. Thunder consolation final
Third year racer Willy Oliver defeated rookie Ashton Vonsay in the consolation final of Jr Thunder.
