Donald McLeod, Morden, MB (July 24) Dean Miljure won a thrilling four way skirmish in the 4 Cylinder class at ALH Motor Speedway on July 24 while Bailey Cousins won again in Slingshots. These two classes had little trouble with the rather tricky conditions at the track. Racing was back on after over a month of inactivity due to rain and wet conditions.
Miljure, Brandon Rehill, Lee Moir and Ian Cabernel were flying around the track at good speed with the four Ford drivers pressuring each other throughout both the feature and heat races. At times there was little room between the four cars as they powered off corner four to head down the front stretch and set up for a headlong dash into corner one. Lap after lap they kept at it to the delight of the crowd. After the heat race one member of the crowd was heard to say, “that was a most wonderous race.”
In the end Miljure managed to win both the heat and feature races. And each time he was followed by Rehill, Moir and Cabernel. Jack Richardson ran a Hyundia managing an eighth place finish ahead of Madison Brown in the heat. In the feautre he trailed the eight Fords.
Bailey Cousins has mastered the Slingshots at ALH. He won both the feature and heat races with Axel Anderson finishing second in both. Zane Anderson took third in the feature with Tyler Doell third in the heat race. These little cars run very well when the track is relatively smooth but with the smaller wheels, have some trouble with a bumpy track.
