It’s going to be a Day of Destruction this Saturday when Thunder Mountain Speedway hosts its points final championship.
Accompanying the regular season bone stock, pro-mini and street stock classes, TMS president Tim Westwick has pulled together an event he hopes will definitely bring the fans to their feet.
“[It’s] an important race date scheduled for Saturday,” Westwick said. “This race will feature our all classes points championship race, as well as our first ever Day of Destruction Crash to Pass and Fun Day.
“This Crash to Pass will truly be unique as Thunder Mountain Speedway will host its first ever trailer race during this main event.”
Westwick said interested participants can use a boat trailer, a travel trailer or any other type or trailer.
In the season points standings it’s Brian Bettles, Arnie Kunka and Allen Roberts leading their respective divisions.
Bettles, in the bone stock class, currently sits four points ahead of second-place Gorden Bettles, with 86 points. Right behind them are the team of Robert Petryshen and George Giesbrecht with 81 points.
In the street stock class it’s the father, son duo of Donny Kunka and Arnie leading the field. Arnie has 87 points with Donny sitting at 78. In third is Westwick with 72.
And in the pro-mini division — the closest of the three — class leader Allen Roberts, with 88 points, sits just one point ahead of second-place Tim Roberts meaning Saturday’s racing will determine the winner. Third place in the pro-mini class, currently, is Marius Dunford.
Westwick said he’d like to thank all of the volunteers who helped make his first year as TMS president a great one.
“I’d like to thank all our volunteers, track sponsors, club members and executive for making this first year of my presidency so enjoyable and fun,” he said.
“To our fans, old and new alike, thanks so much for supporting auto racing in Williams Lake and I look forward to helping foster future interest in racing throughout the Cariboo for years to come.”
All the action gets underway at noon with qualifying laps and time trials. Racing begins at 1 p.m.
