Ready, set , GO!
The stock car races were on full force this past weekend in Taylor, BC. Saturday and Sunday, June 27th and 28th saw many local racers from around the Peace region take part in the Doug Babcock Memorial Points Challenge at the Taylor Speedway.
All different participants took part in the weekend of fun, from knowledgeable drivers themselves to family, friends, local supporters and visitors. The weather could have been nicer—many grumbled about the cool air and overcast sky (a sprinkle of rain provoked more frustration)—but the sun ended up shining for the last part of the day on Sunday, and although the race started late on Sunday, everyone finished and all was well.
Perhaps the most interesting part of the race is the variety of cars—the many makes and models, sizes and colors of the vehicles. That and the local spirit the race inspires: the cheering and support rang loud and clear!
