Borderland Racing washed out on Saturday


It was a no-go for district stock car racers on Saturday night.
The Borderland Racing Association suffered its first cancellation at the Emo Speedway as the track was too wet and the pits were full of water from all of the recent rainfall.
Racing is scheduled to resume this Saturday, with hot laps set for 7 p.m. and the first race at 7:30 (weather permitting).
That rainout opened the door for drivers to race elsewhere–which some took advantage of.
Jeff Davis of Devlin wound up 11th in the Modifieds feature at Hibbing Raceway on Saturday.
Tanner Williamson of Fort Frances was sixth and Cody Ossachuk was 12th in the Midwest Modifieds feature.
Wyatt Boyum of International Falls placed 13th in the Midwest Modifieds feature at Ogilvie Raceway on Saturday before following that up with a ninth-place showing in a ‘B’-main feature on Sunday.
Last Thursday, meanwhile, Gavin Paull of the Fort rode to a sixth-place finish in the Modifieds feature at Winnipeg’s Red River Co-op Speedway.

Time is running down for the decision on whether or not a kids’ fishing derby will run during the 25th-annual Fort Frances Canadian Bass Championship this July.
The event has four volunteers signed up for it so far but tournament organizers need at least six-eight more to go ahead with running it.
You don’t have to be a parent or a grandparent to help out and the derby will run during the day on Thursday, July 18.
Message Jeannette Cawston on the FFCBC Facebook page or text her at 275-9229 to get on board for this exciting event.
