FIRST DOUG LARSON MEMORIAL, WILLIAMS LAKE AND QUESNELL BC, CANADAFIRST DOUG LARSON MEMORIAL, WILLIAMS LAKE AND QUESNELL BC, CANADA

WOW! What a great weekend of racing fun and probably the best show of the year. Many thanks to Bruce Bentley and Wendell Moore for all the hard work putting together the First Annual (we hope it is annual) Doug Larson Memorial Race at Thunder Mountain Speedway in Williams Lake and Gold Pan Speedway in Quesnell. Short track racing at its finest. The staff and fans at both tracks were outstanding. Louise Larson did a smashing job as Trophy Girl at Williams Lake. Both of Doug and Louise’s sons, Ronnie and Richie drove cars at Quesnel and Richie had restored an offset to honor his father that was on display in the pits. Veteran Bob Mears was flagman for both races and did a great job!! Weather was hot and the air smoky from the area fires, but good enough for racing. After the events we were provided with adult beverages and on Saturday, a beef on a bun with salads and desserts. All the drivers were presented with a gold pan plaque to commemorate the event. Ralph Monhay, as past CAMRA officer and driver, was presented with a (used) race tire signed by all the drivers and crew.
