Children’s day at Speedway

The Terrace Speedway had its Kids’ Day race the evening of June 18.

The Terrace Speedway had its Kids’ Day race the evening of June 18.

President of the Speedway, Terry Reinert, said  the  race day was a good one.

At intermission, children were given toys such as flashlights, radio headsets and hot wheels cars.

They also got a ride around the track with a driver.

“We put a helmet on them and take them around the track at a decent speed and let them have a little excitement in the car with us,” Reinert said.

Reinert added that there are some changes on the way for the Speedway. The association is updating its website and plans to include current race regulations and results – along with links for video footage.

There are also plans to build two mud bogging pits this September where vehicles will race side by side through mud and water.

“They get 250 ft. to see who comes out the other end first,” Reinert explained.

With about 35 members on board for this year, the Speedway is looking to grow its membership. As the only race track northwest of Prince George, Reinert said he would like to see people from Kitimat, Smithers and Prince Rupert joining up.

He explains that getting involved is not as hard as one would think. “I always thought it was hard to get into racing,” he said. “I didn’t realize how easy it was.”


Results for June 18 are as follows.

For the A thunder it was Kent Goddard in both the heat and main race. For the B thunder Blair Loset won the heat and Kam Maximchuk won the main.

Both the heat and the main events went to Terry Reinert in the A bomber. For the B bomber events Garry King won the heat and Sonny Singh took the main. Both events in the C bomber class were won by Tracy Blais.
