Western Speedway, Victoria BC Friday & Saturday June 13 & 14 2014

Strawberry Cup

 

Gary Smith, son of the late Roy Smith, drove Roy’s restored famed Vantreight Daffodil Special number 7 car to pace the cars in Friday’s Winged Sprint Car Strawberry Cup Feature race.

 

Roy won the 1974 and 1975 International Drivers Challenge (IDC) titles, and the 1975 Washington Racing Association (WRA) championship with this car.  The car was recently restored by Victoria’s Mark Meeres, who paced Saturday’s Feature in the car.

 

Boise’s Johnny Giesler won the Friday 35 lap Feature.  Jeff Montgomery captured Saturday’s while Giesler’s third place finish was enough for him to capture the Strawberry Cup title.

Great Resto job. Great memories of those days. One of the things missing now is the ingenuity and uniqueness that this and all of the cars of that era had.
