BCRA Vintage Midgets At Lakeport Speedway Saturday August 13, 2016


By June Wheeler-Ferreira

Hi all, well we had another hot time at Lakeport and I do mean hot on Saturday August the 13th. The weather was in the high 90’s and to top it off there was a big forest fire as I’m sure you are aware of that, smoked was seen at the far end of the race track from where the fire was burning. After the races we got the word that HY 29 was closed and we would have to take 29 North to 20 which was open with no problems and we made it with no problems to 101, but with all that said we had a fun day.

Midgets and vintage midgets were down on cars but everybody got plenty of track time, hot laps, heat race, and a main event. They also had the regular Saturday night division running the Bandoleros, Taco Bell Bombers, Jammers, Legends, so there was plenty of racing.

 There was a fan appreciation for everyone to come down out of the stands to look at the cars, in which they enjoyed, so other than the heat things went pretty smooth, had fun. Next stop will be Calistoga over Labor Day, the 9th Annual Louie Vermeil Classic, hope to see all there.
