TOUROND WINS SECOND ANNUAL FRED RANNARD, SR. MIDGET CLASSIC
Racing in front of the largest championship night crowd in Agassiz Speedway history, Greg Tourond was victorious Saturday night in the Second Annual Fred Rannard, Sr. Midget Classic.
The 29 year old, third generation driver, from Langley, B.C. won $1,500 in the race that featured the Washington Midget Racing Association and the Agassiz midgets. It was the highest paying pavement midget race on the west coast this year. Tourond was also crowned season champion at Agassiz for the first time after receiving rookie of the year honors last season.
Rob Rannard waved the green flag to start the feature race and it was defending Agassiz champion and former WMRA champ, Troy Globe of Abbotsford that led the first half of the 30 lap main event. Tourond, who started fifth, got by Globe as they raced through turns one and two on lap 15 on his way to the victory. Globe finished second for a $600 payday and Marysville, Washington's Seidelman was third earning $500. Everett, Washington's Kenny Woods was fourth and Abbotsford's Billy Bell was fifth.
Wayne Goodwin, Lee Halladay, Dana Glenn, Keith Davidson and Jeff Bird rounded out the top ten finishers. Tourond also received the Speedmart hard charger of the race award.
Seidelman, who had won 13 straight WMRA races and four in a row at Agassiz also got $100 for fast time from Tron Fabrication after he broke his own track record with a lap of 12.837. He has now won six consecutive WMRA titles.
In other action Saturday night it was late model rookie of the year Chase Schmidt winning his first main event while Dave Hemrich took home his eighth championship. In the street stock division Russ Luke won for the sixth time in eight points races on the way to his third straight championship. The mini stock division saw Joey Silas win for the fourth time this year but it was Travis George pulling off the rare feat of winning rookie of the year and season champ all at once. In the hornet class Matt Ostermeyer picked up his third win of 2017 and Dillon Gordon won his first championship. Agassiz Speedway will open the 2018 season on April 28.
