Dryden driver increases lead atop Modified standings

Category: 

The week off didn’t do anything to dull Vic Larson’s edge.

The Dryden resident rebounded from two fourth-place finishes in the qualifying heats to win the feature race in the Modified division during Borderland Racing Association action last Saturday at the Emo Speedway.

With rain washing out the previous week’s competition, Larson shook off the rust to raise his season points total to 270—and increase his lead to 16 points over second-place pursuer Jake Kamm of Dryden (254).

A third Dryden racer, Kevin Randell, jumped from fourth to third in the overall standings with a second-place finish in Saturday night’s feature while Emo’s Dan Galloway took third.

In the Street Stock division, Devlin’s Denny Trimble roared to victory in the feature race this past Saturday night, with Jeff Wickstrom from International Falls second and Jeremy Simmons from Ear Falls coming third.

The victory vaulted Trimble from sixth to third place in the standings with 255 points.

Defending champ Ron Westover from Devlin used his fourth-place result to boost him past Emo’s Anthony Visser into top spot in the standings with 269 points—two more than Visser, who finished fifth in Saturday’s feature.

Another reigning titleist, Kyle Ridlon of Aurora, Man., put himself on the doorstep of re-taking the division points lead by winning both the preliminary and feature races in the Mini-Sprint class last Saturday.

Ridlon’s successful evening gave him 205 points—one back of series leader Ken Perry Sr. of Fort Frances, who finished second in the feature.

Kenny Perry Jr. came in third in the feature—the same position he holds in the overall standings.

Thunder Bay’s Jamie Smart wound up in fourth in the feature in only his second race of the season.

Racing resumes tomorrow night at the Emo Speedway, with hot laps slated for 7 p.m. and the green flag dropping at 7:30.

Also tomorrow, the “Dash for Cash” youth bicycle race will be held during the intermission in front of the grandstand. The competition is open to all those 15 and under, and will be split into four different age groups.

The track also has Organ Donor Night and Powder Puff races planned for July 19.
