Thunder Mountain Christmas in July draws a crowd

Rain didn't hamper enthusiasm for Thunder Mountain Speedway's Christmas in July event held Saturday.

Although the races had to be put over until Sunday due to rain, there was a large crowd out, and many great food and toy donations made at the Christmas in July event held at Thunder Mountain Speedway Saturday night, says Lynn Dunford.

“Mother Nature just wouldn’t co-operate and the race had to be canceled,” Dunford said of the scheduled July 25 races. “We did get to run on Sunday though!!!”

Terry and Kim Braman won Best Decorated Pit with their creative Ho Ho Hoosier Tire Christmas tree.

“The spectators were greeted by Elves Debbie Sykes and Gloria Eastman – hard not to get into the spirit with their contagious festive enthusiasm,” Dunford says. “Our local drivers were out in full force and we had competitors from Penticton and Quesnel.”

Sunday Tim Graham wheeled his #27 Street  Stock into Victory Lane alongside Chris Closson’s #13 Bone Stock from Quesnel.

The show stealer was definitely the #6 Bone Stock piloted by local Rookie, Dave Best, who brought his A-game driving skills and made the #13 really work for the win.

“Good, clean and safe racing — just how we like it!

The next event will be the Memorial Race Saturday, Aug. 22. Qualifying will be at 5 p.m. and racing starts at 6 p.m.
