TAYLOR, B.C. – While the rainy weather did help somewhat to keep the dust down at the Taylor Speedway, the dirt oval was too much of a quagmire on Sunday, forcing organisers to scrap the planned races for that day.

Despite this, there were still two days of exciting stock car racing at the oval. Anthony Seguin took first in the Junior Mini Sprints class on Saturday against Tyson LeClerc, while LeClerc was the lone racer in the class on Monday afternoon. Eddie Scarfo continued his dominance of the Senior Mini Sprints, winning Saturday’s races by default, before beating Keegan Wallace and Cody LeClerc on Monday. Kaden Beebe was the lone entry in the 80cc Mini Sprint class on either day.

Dakota Krahn took first on both days in the Mini Juniors class, followed by Camryn Beaumont and Dylan Beaumont on Saturday. Clint Mason was the weekend’s fastest Mini Senior driver, taking two wins vs. Mike Taylor, Kyle Mason, Chelsea Babcock, and Jordan Harrison.

Cam Campbell also dominated the Sports class both race days, while Matt Burdock and Wayne Dale traded 2nd and 3rd place finishes.

Seven drivers were out looking to take wins in the IMCA Modifieds over the weekend. Roger Bonnieville held off AJ Everton, Gord Beaumont, and Robb McNabb on Saturday. Sadly, Bonnieville couldn’t repeat on Sunday, ending up in last place behind Johnny Beaumont in first, Matt Richards in 2nd place and Gord Beaumont once again in third.

The final race of the weekend showcased the driving talents of Camryn, Dylan, and Johnny Beaumont in a Family Grudge Match. Camryn ended up winning that one driving the number 88 car.
