Capital City Drags Open this Sunday

Mother Nature keeps throwing a wrench into our plans, but it appears we will have a half decent day tomorrow, so we will run the Drag Strip tomorrow, Sunday September 23 from 1 to 5.

We will try and run tomorrow from 1 to 5 pm for those of you you need a fix. The track is still wet but should dry by tomorrow if we do not have any more rain. We will be on for tomorrow at this point unless you hear any different from us. We hope to see you tomorrow. We are looking forward to our Drag Event coming up next weekend. We hope to have our new bleachers in by then, and will accommodate seating up to 100. You may have heard me say this before, but we will continue to improve on the facilities until you and I are happy with Capital City Drags. We have a long way to go to make it where I will be happy with it, but with your support I know we can get it done. I want to thank Shawn Kerr, Paul Luciano, Pam and Twitch, Scott and Casey for all of their time and commitment to making this facility the best it can be. I want to thank one of the drag strip newest sponsors - Sport Systems Canada for their contribution in making the purchase of our bleachers possible. I want to thank all of our participants over the last couple of months, because without you we would not be able to do what we do. I hope to see all of you next week, and some of you tomorrow, for those who can make it out.

Summer Slam and the 2012 Season Ends on a High Note

It is hard to believe that the Stock Car Season has come to an end. It seems only yesterday that we were painting the stands and getting ready for our 51st season. As it is with all good things, they must come to an end. The season ended on a high note with  new champions named in each car class. The Monster Trucks were out and put on a show for all those who attended. The Vintage Modifieds always put on a great show and Saturday's race was what the fans wanted - an exciting race, and the Vintage Mod's didn't disappoint. We will be talking with them again shortly about scheduling them next year to hopefully see them multiple times again in 2013.

The twin Late Model races were some of the better races seen all year. Justin Holtom ended up winning both features and the overall night, making him the Late Model Summer Slam Champion. With these wins and the points associated with them, made Justin Holtom the Capital City Speedway Late Model Champion for 2012.

The Thunder car field was lower than expected, but in the end Greg Ogilvie took the checkered flag and the Summer Slam Title for 2012. Congratulations to Todd Musker who took home the 2012 Thunder Car Championship after having a great 2012 season.

The Legend field put on a great show and when the dust had settled we saw a few new faces in the winners corner. AS this was a National Qualifier Race, we had winners in each class. The Masters winner was Bob Sugrue, and winners of the Semi Pro and Pro drivers class were the Haufe brothers, Matt and Brad.

The Mini Stock field had a few new faces in the group this week and by far the best car count of the day.Chris MacDonald from Security Connection, took home the feature win and the Mini Stock Championship for 2012.

Jason Moss showed why he will be ready for Mini Stock next year, by winning the Summer Slam Feature and the Four for Fun Championship. Rules state that the Champion of this class must move up to mini stock if they win the Championship. Look for Jason Moss to make some waves in the Mini Stock class next year. We are looking for new Four for Fun cars to come out in 2013, as we will loose two drivers next year as AJ Dickie has already made the move up with his new car.

The 100 Lap enduro finished off the night with Dave Quinton taking home another 4 cylinder win in his car. Gilles Melanson took home his first win with his car in the 8 cylinder field.

Thanks to all of you who attended this race, and all of you who came to the track this season. We cannot do this without your support and for that, I thank you. Mark your calender for Opening Night 2013 which will be held on May 29th, 2013.

I hope to see you at the races in 2013.

Summer Slam TOMORROW!!

Please join us tomorrow, Sunday September 9th for our largest show of the season. The Monster Trucks are on their way down and all of our racers are ready to put on a great show. Although one day late, the weather will cooperate with us so we can put our season ending race on.

There still are some great battles in store in a couple of classes to determine who will be class champions. The Vintage Modifieds always put on a great show, along with Monster Trucks - Higher Education and Black Stallion. To finish off our season and night, will be a 100 Lap Enduro.

Remember to bring a sweater and coat as it will be a little cooler tomorrow and as the sun goes down on the season and night, the temperature will drop. We want you to enjoy all of the show and do not want you to get cold. Remember to bring a cushion or blanket to sit on, as the seats may still be a little damp. We do have Capital City Seat cushions on sale for only $ 5.00. Most important is to bring cash as we do not have Interact or Debit.

I hope to see you at the races tomorrow.
