Tonight I went to the races. I will post the photos later, but it was a lot of fun. I haven't been out there for a least three years but it was a good way to spend a sunday night.

I hear ads for Western Speedway on the radio quite regularly but I have yet to go.

Those photos might convince me;)

I went there for the demolition derby once. Now THAT was hillariously fun.
Imagine this: a dozen beat-up compact cars in a forty lap race with a track that is a FIGURE-EIGHT! Later on that evening they took a beat up old chev and drove it up a half-ramp just to see if they could flip it over completely and then land on its wheels again. And when it wasn't successful, half a dozen or so boys would simply roll the thing right-side up and try it again until it was completely out of commission.

A friend of mine used to run in the mini figure eights, and I had another that used to run claimers. It's a fun saturday evening event.

I like Western Speedway. They have held entertaining, and great races their. A few years ago they had the big rig trucks come and that was a blast. My friend and I love the dwarf stock cars. The can get up to 90 miles an hour. I try and go 3 or 4 times a year. I go for the special events. Have seen the sprint cars and they are fast a 50 lap race can be finished in under 25 minutes. Would like to see the track doubled in size. It is just to small for any good races. It is something like 2/5th of a mile or something. They need to upgrade facilities in order to get bigger and better races.

Saanich race car driver Bill Okell, 64, picked up two more trophies while racing in California at the end of October and set a new record in the process.


Over the weekend of Oct. 26 and 27, Okell took part in the annual Sports Car Club of America (SCCA) Pacific Coast Road Racing Championships at the Buttonwillow Raceway near Bakersfield, Calif. This was his first time at the track in many years and his first time driving his own race car on the track.


Okell entered the 2019 race as the two-time defending champion and left with his title intact. He raced in the NASPORT Lite class and won both his races in the same 1964 MGB Roadster he’s been racing in for 44 years.






for perseverance and toiling away from town in relative obscurity alone this guy should be indicted into the sports hall of fame here.
