Steven Bradley, Morden, MB (August 7) ALH Motor Speedway held its fifth-to-last race this past weekend. With such beautiful weather, it’s hard to believe the dirt track schedule is coming to a close in just under a month. 7 classes of racing were served to the faithful motorsport fans of Morden with over 60 drivers battling it out on the high-banked, quarter mile oval.
Ward Imrie topped the WISSOTA Modified class as he continues his 2016 domination. Scott Greer finished second and seems to be getting closer to the winner’s circle, while Ryan Cousins, Jerome Guyot and Lee McRae earned top 5 finishes.
In the WISSOTA Midwest Modified division, local racer, Rick Fehr collected some hardware after holding off Austin Hunter for the checkered flag. Tony Caissie, Cody Wall and Paul Veert ended their days with top 5 finishes.
Shawn Teunis won the family battle again this Sunday in the WISSOTA Street Stock series – crossing the finish line ahead of his brother, Jesse. Brad Wall, Pure Stock driver, Derek Pollock and Rod Wolfe each collected top 5 placings.
In the Northern Super Truck division, veteran Jamie Vernaus topped the 5-truck field as he held off Dustin Enns and Rod Fidler to stamp his name on the winner’s trophy.
In Pure Stock action, Derek Pollock seems to be leaving a lasting impression on his final season in the pure Stock class as he claimed the checkered flag for the second night in a row – fresh off a $1,000 Donny Byfuglien Memorial win the night before in Greenbush, Minnesota. Kevin Smith finished in the runner up position in front of Chad Allen, while Pat Smith and Emerson Hamm ended their race with top 5s.
In the 4 Cylinder Stock class, Dean Miljure held off his team mate, Ryan Higgins to pick up his second ALH win in a row. Ian Cabernal, Brandon Rehill and Shane Rehill all earned top 5 finishes.
In the introductory WISSOTA Slingshot series, Bailey Cousins once again topped the 4-car field finishing ahead of Aiden Fehr and Tyler Doell.
