2016 Season wrap up notes



Season wrap up notes.

It's hard to believe the 2016 season has finished up. This was the first season in sixteen years of WESCAR racing to have 3 main events run on Sunday after a Saturday rainout. Thanks to all the racetracks for supporting the WESCAR Racing series. Many hours of work go into planning and hosting a touring race. Thanks also to the WESCAR volunteers for putting in 3 extra volunteer days to finish the rain delayed races. And of course many thanks to the fans who come out and support the series, sun, clouds or rainy days.
Congratulations to Logan Jewel for winning the WESCAR championship. A great hard working team that never gives up. Also congratulations to Kirk Frost, the WESCAR rookie of the year. Thanks to all of the sportsman racers for supporting the series. Many hours are spent and miles travelled to see racing at this level. Enjoy the off season, see you at the banquet.

WESCAR points final Quesnel, race day schedule

Hello sportsman racers, 

We are getting ready for race 6, points final weekend in Quesnel. This is probably one of the biggest weekends of racing in BC with the WESCAR points final, and the Tri Cities street stock invitational all in one day. The schedule is posted below with an early start Saturday morning. If you are travelling, there is wiggle room. Please contact Mike Ernst at 250-991-1711 text or call, email supershoe21@hotmail.com if you are coming so he can reserve a pit spot on pit road for you. Good chance there will be over 60 cars in the pits so everything has to run smoothly. Looking forward to a great day of racing. 

Info from the track:
Wescar Late models will pit on the pit lane with their pit equipment/tires to remain inside of the inner pit wall. Whatever room is remaining will be shared with some of the Tri-city cars, and will be done so by points. To try to give everyone some pit pad space there will be 4 pads located to the left of pit entrance as your coming into the pits that will be shared community pads. The track will,have both classes using 1 set of tech scales for the day. They should be set up by approx 8:30 which gives plenty of time for everyone to cross them and sort out any issues. They however are not there to set your car up on. Be sure to come to pre qualifying tech with your car ready and legal.
Know your line ups!!! If you are not ready to go you will be replaced. Tri-City Streets will be able to use the live pit lane for their main. The spotters stand is for spotters and emergency crew/officials only. Bottom concession will have breakfast buns and coffee Saturday morning. Bring a broom if you can, the quicker we can clean up any spills, the better the day will go for everyone.

Getting ready for Mertin GM 100 Agassiz Speedway

The WESCAR racing series returns to Agassiz Spedway this coming weekend, August 6. The points are close and the racing will be action packed. This tight little quarter mile has been bitter sweet for many racers. Some scoring first wins, others losing points as they battle the tricky track itself. The local racers always run well, but the top in points have been racing hard. Come out and see race 4 of the WESCAR  racing series this weekend.
