The Winnipeg Super Trucks will be returning to the Emo Speedway one more time due to their popularity!
Last season, fans were thrilled and dazzled by some great racing action including a spectacular rollover before the night was over.
On Saturday, Aug. 6, action returns at the track with the added bonus of the Winnipeg Super Trucks. This event is something you won’t want to miss.
“This is an event brought together once again by the support of the local community. Several businesses and individuals throughout the Rainy River District have come together to help provide some great entertainment from a unique class of racing vehicles,” explained promoter Anthony Leek.
Included in this special event for sponsorship is Norlund Oil Ltd. (2003), Green’s BBQ Bar, Vern Thompson, Gary Judson, Ed’s Plumbing & Heating, Tompkins Home Hardware, Darren Blattner, Glen Jackson, Barwick Service, The Emo Inn, Dimit Bus Lines Ltd., Visser Auto, and Harold McQuaker Enterprises.
“Without their generous support, it wouldn’t be possible to continue to bring high quality family entertainment through the sport of racing. This is definitely an event no one would want to miss since it is an addition to the always exciting racing program,” Leek said.
The night’s action will also feature the weekly racing of the Seven Clans Casino WISSOTA Midwest Modifieds, the Mel’s Well Drilling/Nestor Falls Marine WISSOTA Modifieds, and Emo Street Stocks.
Racing has been extremely competitive this year especially in the WISSOTA Midwest Modified class as there have been six different winners in seven week of events as well as several first time ever feature winners in both the Midwest Modifieds and in the Street Stocks.
“This is the time of year where the competition is stepped up to a whole new level. Getting a win is more important now than ever as there is only a month or so of racing left,” noted Leek.
Fans can not only expect to see some great local drivers tear up the track, but the Winnipeg Super Trucks will definitely be a special treat that is rarely seen.
“The Winnipeg Super Trucks have some of the most exciting racing I have ever seen. There has been several races at Red River Co-op Speedway, ALH Motor Speedway, and Jamestown Speedway of three wide racing and bumper to bumper wins at the finish line,” said Leek.
Not only are the Super Trucks fast and have close side-by-side racing, but are unique in their appearance. Compared to their car counterparts, the body of the trucks resemble those of a pick-up truck on the street but are run by Bert racing manual transmissions and are lower to the ground.
Be sure to mark on your calendars that the Winnipeg Super Trucks will be arriving at the Emo Speedway on Aug. 6 starting at 7 p.m. for hot laps and racing at 7:30 p.m.
Tickets are $10 for adults, $6 for students/seniors, $4 for ages 6-12, with 5 and under free.
Family packages are available for $25.
