PGARA, Prince George British Columia, August 21, 2019 Part OnePGARA, Prince George British Columia, August 21, 2019  Part One

First track on our northern swing: 28 beautiful vintage sprints/super-modifieds came to PGARA for our WCVRs first time visit to Prince George. Lost a couple of engines but no other serious damage to repair. Beautiful county, great fans and the track support was friendly and helpful. Many thanks to Jamie and his all-volunteer staff for their helpful and friendly attitude. The crowd was so great, both snack bars (good burgers and dogs!) ran out of food and closed before intermission! A huge shout out to Bob Williams, 5W for his hard work securing sponsorship for the racers – Mantis Welding, White Spruce Enterprises, Pittman Asphalt, Jim's Engines and Dyno, Twin River Developments Ltd., Williams Petroleum, CC Industries Ltd., Auto Magic Tire, Cobalt Group, Murry Carlson Northland Chrysler Dodge Jeep, Chieftain Auto Parts, Mr Quick Lube, Wajax Equip., Sullivan Motor Products Ltd., Williams Signs, and Advanced Industrial Group Inc. If you are ever in Prince George and need these services, these are the businesses to support. The race was the Kenny Hiebert Memorial Classic. Kenny was a local racer who did a great deal for the local racers and track. PGARA hopes to repeat next year and include the cars of WCVR. We welcomed new drivers Larry James with Martin Holmes’ #29 Hyder. This car once belonged to Cliff Hucul, former CAMRA and Indy driver. Cliff was on hand to watch as well as to throw the green flag in the Main. Also, Karl Seibert joined son Trevor and grandson Ryley in the BWR #27, making it a three generation event. (All 3 tracks). Richie Larson #22 returned to the WCVR event and was able to join the racing to honor his dad, Doug Larson. Wendell Moore in the 44w returned for some racing action. Austin Moore was on hand as and ATV driver/pusher – and he was kept busy - broken leg and all! Kathleen and Don Herbert returned to the races with Mia and Mocha. Good to see all of you. Many of you have seen/heard the great BBQ feast Bob and Vivian provided to the drivers, crew, supports at their home as well as providing space for 20 RV’s and as many car trailers/haulers to park and access to his shop. The weather was cooperative by the time we went racing. By evening, it was windy and cold. The stock cars had a nasty one that held up our A Main and the full stands weren’t quite so full. We did get in all our racing!
