Stock cars, go-karts washed out


Borderland Racing Association and Borderland Kart Racing action were both a no go over the weekend.
Heavy rainfall last week caused the infield of the Emo Speedway to take on too much water and it couldn’t be drained quick enough in order for the races to go ahead.
But despite that, local racers were still able to get into races at other speedways over the weekend.
Dayton Brady of Fort Frances soared to victory in the Midwest Modifieds feature at Lake of the Woods Speedway in Kenora on Friday.
Cody Ossachuk of the Fort was second while Ritchie Lapointe of Emo failed to finish and was placed 10th.
Brody Strachan of Emo placed sixth in the Modified sfeature at River Cities Speedway in Grand Rapids, North Dakota on Friday and 18th in the feature at Greenbush on Saturday.
Gavin Paull of the Fort wound up 11th in a Modifieds ‘B’-feature at Greenbush while Brandon Pelepetz of Emo was eighth in a second ‘B’-feature.
Jake Froemke of International Falls took ninth in the Street Stocks feature at Rice Lake on Saturday and fourth in the feature at the I-94 Speedway in Fergus Falls, Mn.
Brady Caul of the Fort was 15th in the Modifieds feature at Viking Speedway in Alexandria. He also competed at I-94 Speedway Friday but failed to finish the feature and wound up 10th.
James Lambert scored a fifth-place finish on Saturday in the Midwest Modifieds feature at Greenbush.
Local motocross racers also were in action in Brookston, Mn. on Sunday.

There will be a new look to the division that the Muskies play in the Winnipeg High School Football League.
Fort High will be part of the six-team Division 3 Conference, formerly known as the Currie Division.
The division’s top two finalists from last year, the St. John’s Tigers and Elmwood Giants, have moved up to Division 2 while Lorette Collegiate has ended its football program.
They’ll be replaced by the Neelin Spartans, who drop down from Division 2, and the Springfield Collegiate Sabres.
The Muskies will open the 2019 season on the road against Springfield on Sept. 13.
