Donald McLeod, Morden, MB (August 25) Rob Reese has enjoyed a fine season at ALH Motor Speedway and he wrapped it up by sweeping the 4 Cylinder class on August 25. Meanwhile Mike Peterson from Langcaster, MN made his second visit to the track and like the first time he was here he won the Pure Stock V8 feature. Brett Proctor salvaged something for the regulars in this class by winning the heat race.
This is the closest to stock cars that you get in grassroots dirt track racing. There are very few modifications allowed and they actually look pretty much look like, well, stock cars. The scheduled two day event was cut to one when a late afternoon rain storm cancelled the Saturday show.
With 12 cars in 4 cylinder and 13 in pure stock V8 it was the best turnout of the year for both classes.
In both the heat and feature Reese finished ahead of a Perdonic with Scott second and Bill third in the heat. Then in the feature Bill was second and Scott fourth with Alan Beamish managing to squeeze his Hyundia into third spot. Mark Syvert was fifth in the feature.
In pure stock Proctor finished ahead of Les McRae and Dylan Penner in the heat with Peterson fourth and Rob Penner fifth. Then in the feature Proctor raced well, as he has all season, but settled for third place behind Peterson and McRae. Marv Klassen of Morden had his best finish of the season finishing fourth in his number 445 Pontiac.
