2012 ARCA OK Tire Sportsman Series Race Recap for Williams Lake - Race 2
Saturday afternoon in Williams Lake brought beautiful blue skies and mid 20’s temperatures to Thunder Mountain Raceway, the venue for race 2 of the ARCA OK Tire Sportsman Series. The superfast 3/8 mile oval was hot and slick through practice and looking like only one racing groove would come in. As practice sessions passed, the ARCA series was able to connect their timing and scoring system to the internet and for the first time in sportsman racing history in BC, the entire world had access to the Heartland Toyota 100 lap event. In fact, previous series official Tyler Polaski watched the scoring live from Australia.
Qualifying order was set from the last practice session and it was clear local driver Ryley Seibert was superfast. Not to be left out was Mark Berriau, Sarah Cornett-Ching, Logan jewel, Dave Olson, and Ian Graham all within 2 tenths. When Qualifying was all over, Ryley Seibert had set a new track record of 15.852. Berriau so close with a 15.913, and Olson a 15.933. The top eight cars were separated by just over two tenths.The heat races were fast and furious with Trevor Adelman winning the B heat and Ian Graham winning the A heat.
