PORT COLBORNE, ONTARIO… Gary Lindberg from Ridgeway, Ontario and Rob Ledingham from Port Colborne, Ontario received the 2013 Track Championships for the Cosco Haulage DIRTcar Sportsman and the Peters Excavating Late Models respectively on Labor Day Weekend at the New Humberstone Speedway.
There was seven laps completed in the JC Auto Street Stocks with Shawn Wilson leading James Thompson when Mother Nature intervened and forced speedway management to pull the plug on the remaining racing program.
Next Sunday as part of the Trevor Wilkens Memorial Night, double features for the Street Stocks and Mini Stocks will be raced. In two weeks, double features for the Pro 4 Trucks and Pure Stocks will be raced.
HUMBERSTONE NOTES:. The start of the evening’s program was delayed by a half hour due to a late afternoon shower. Car count report for Sunday September 1st; 22 Sportsman, 9 Late Models, 11 Street Stocks, 15 Mini Stocks, 12 Pro 4 Trucks and 7 Pure Stocks for a total of 76 cars pitside.
Racing returns to the Port Colborne oval on Labor Day Sunday September 8th as Cosco Haulage presents the Trevor Wilkens Memorial for the Sportsman Super DIRTcar Series. The Street Stocks, Pro 4 Trucks, Mini Stocks and Pure Stocks will complete the racing card. Gates will open at 4:00pm for both the pits and the grandstands and racing will begin at 6:00pm sharp.
