Wednesday June 19, I took in the regular Wednesday night racing at Capital City Speedway in the Nations Capital. The evening Started out with the Legends running a feature race as they were not able to get a feature in on June 5. In the other classes there was some great heat racing.
This night saw the Vintage Modifieds return for some more racing. Furtherst travelled in the class I'm told is # 57 of the Gill family. They made the trip from New York State. There was some great racing in the late model and mini stock heat races.
The Features saw the 72 of Mike Attwill take home his first feature win ever. The Late Model saw the 14 of Sean Kennedy take home the win followed by his usual victory donuts. Mini Stock saw the 49 of Casey Cavanagh take home the win. In Legends the 57 of Kevin Foisy took home the win. In Vintage Modifieds the B10 of Paul Billings took home the win. Thunder cars saw the 56 of Jessica Pasinetti take home her first ever feature win.

This first weekend in June saw the first of three Wheels A Churnin events of the year. Some of the event are Mud Drags, Tough Truck Challenge, Wheel to Wheel racing , ATV and Snowmobile Drag Racing, truck and tractor pulls. No shortage of events to take in once they get started. I found myself taking in one of three classes run the off road obstacle course. I then headed over to watch mud drags and trator pulls. The wheel to wheel track was quite dusty and with mud drags running at the same time I was not able to take in any racing during this visit. I was amazed to see some great custom mud bog rigs in the mud pit as you'll see in my videos. Saturday early evening the sky opened up and the dust problem was sovled. So if your looking to take in a motorsport event in July, I suggest you take in the July 27-28 event.

Saturday April 6, 2013 saw the return of Black Jack Racing to the Edelweiss Ski Hill. Due to the warmer weather in 2012 the event could not be held. I was pleased to see lots of spectators and racers. Based on the number of race rounds going on, the entries appeared to have increased since the first 2011. It was great to see all these different classes race up the hill.

The Last couple weekends have been packed full of great events. Towards the end of September I attended EXPO Sno on a Saturday. This was a snowmobile show and swap meet in Quebec. I picked up some needed snowmobile parts. Then on the Sunday I headed to North Augusta for the closing day of Wheels A Churnin. There sure is lots to see and do there. Some of the things on the go are the Mud Dragsters, Truck Pull, Obstacle Course and Mud Bog. On the 27th of September I attended the Metcalfe Fair Demo Derby. It was my first time going and I was surprised by the numbers. The following night I was out at the Capital City Drag Strip for the start of the weekend bracket racing. Saturday the 29th of September I was in Montreal for the Supermotocross. That was great to see. Although the audio inside the Olympic Stadium was terrible and you could barely make out what the announcer was saying. There sure have been some nice fall days and the colours are beautiful. Get out and enjoy.

Time sure has flown by. Most people I've talked with, have had a busy summer. As everyone in the local area knows, we haven't seen much rain. What does mother nature decide to do on the date set for the Summer Slam at Capital City Speedway? She decided to rain. Friday the 7th of September, it began thundering and lightning around 11pm. Saturday rolls around and its pouring rain, pretty much all day. Good thing the officals made the call a few days before and moved the Summer Slam to the rain date of September 9.
I arrived to the track on Sunday just before 2. Out front the Monster Trucks were parked on display before their show. Higher Education and Black Stallion were on Display. Also on display was a drag car and an Outlaw 600 Ice Oval Race sled. Of course there were some drivers around the oval sled and I had a good chat with them as I hadn't seen them in quite some time.
I made my way into the pits and saw a visiting late model and mini stock car. There was some great heat races. The Vintage Modifieds were also back and this time there was a bigger pack out on the track which was great to see. There was a drifting and drag race demonstration and then the Monster Truck Came out for their first show, The feature races saw some great racing. The last race of the season was the 100 Lap Enduro Race.
Stock Car Season maybe over at Capital City Speedway, but Thursday night drifting and Friday night drag racing is still on.

July 4th was Independence day In the United States and Canada just celebrated Canada Day. The weather has been nice as of late. I made my way out to Capital City Speedway for the regular Wednesday Night Stock Car Racing. It was warm but a nice breeze would come half way throguh the heat races. This nigh was fan appreciation night and race fans got a chance to get down track during intermission and get up close with the cars. The drivers had a some picture cards and treats on the hoods of their cars. Lots of things for the kids to pick up, After intermission it was time for the Feature Races. The Feature Races saw the #82 take the win in Four For Fun, the #00 in Late Model, the #57 In Legends, the #7 in Thunder Cars and the #13 in Mini Stock. Next week July 11 will feature a 100 lap Enduro.

Summer Time is here and that means regular Wednesday night stock car racing @ Capital City Speedway. Opening night was last Wednesday (May 23) The Speedway also has Drifting which has started up and the Drag Strip will open up in June.

Coming up this weekend on June 2 second is the first Wheels A Churnin of the Year. Lots to see and do, that’s for sure.

March 21, 2012 saw the AMA Supercross role into Toronto for a night of racing at the Rogers Centre. I Made the trip down to Tornoto to take in this event for the first time. I've always watched the Races on the TV, but being able to see it in person was so much better. The Stadium was full with a good crowd chearing for the favourite riders.

January 14, 2012 was the coldest day of the year so far. The temperature was -18 Celsius. This did not stop the diehard snowmobile enthusiasts from taking in the Old Snowmobile Show and Swap in Eganville Ontario. The event was held on the site where come February snowmobile will race around the Bonnechere Cup Oval Track. There were some nice show sleds on display. Visitors to the show got a chance to pick up a ballot and vote for sleds in different classes. There was also a swap area. The next big event will be the Bonnechere Cup which will be held February 25 and 26.
