2016 official schedule released

Hello sportsman racers,

Sorry for the delay in releasing the official schedule, but we held off hoping for a date in the Okanagan, however we were unable to secure one. Thanks to all of the tracks who support the WESCAR Racing series. We are looking forward to a great season. Any racers or teams that have sponsors or companies that are interested in joining, we have spots for a contingent sponsors as well as race day sponsors. Please contact Gary at for sponsorship information.

The schedule includes August 6th in Agassiz with the usual hot August night action in the South. The Williams Lake memorial race in August, a great time to remember past racers who have been an important part of this sport. The September 17 date could be the largest race date in the province with the Tri-Cities Street stock Series finishing up as well as the WESCAR points final. Looking forward to kicking off the 2016 season. See you at the track.

Remembering one of our own

We would like to take a moment to remember Derek Christianson, a WESCAR racer, a family man, a hard working, fun loving guy gone too soon. Our deepest condolences to his family and friends. He will be missed by many.
