Hildebrand emerges as weekend champion at Doug Babcock Memorial Races

This past weekend, the Taylor Speedway held its second set of summer races. Saturday and Sunday, were the 4th annual Doug Babcock Memorial Races, a two day set of races featuring a variety of racing classes.

Results from the two day event were based on a points system, where drivers combined their points earned from Saturday and Sunday.

This year’s Doug Babcock Memorial All Points Challenge winner was Jordie Hildebrand, who earned 140 points over two days of racing in the Mini Junior Division.

There was no clear cut second place finisher, as three racers tied for second place after tallying their two day scores.

Tying for second place with 136 points was AJ Everton, who drives in the Sport series, Robin Jossefson of the Bomber division as well as Matt Lawton, a Mini Junior driver.

A total of 136 points earned Sports driver Ron McNabb third place in the race.

One more award was handed out following two days of rip-roaring action, the Hard Luck Award, which was awarded to Mini Adult driver Dee Peever, who took an unfortunate crash into the wall during the second heat of day one, to earn herself the award.

Following the second set of races, the next event hosted by the Taylor Speedway will be the annual Father’s Day Demo Derby, taking place Sunday, June 17.
