Noble boys take checkered flags on The Laker News night at SSW

SCOTIA SPEEDWORLD: It was a double night of checkered flags for two racing brothers from Nine Mile River during a big night of racing at Scotia Speedworld on The Laker News night July 8.

The night featured the Shriner’s Classic 50 laps feature for sportsman and the INEX National qualifier for Legends 50 lap race, presented by The Laker News, plus the regular CARSTAR Weekly Racing Series action for the Beginner Bandolero; Outlaw Bandolero; and the Thunder/Lightning division.

On the night, The Laker News had several guests throw the green flag for features, including Deb Peddle-Hann from Journey 2 Wellness; Sherry Willison and son Andrew Willison for two divisions from JunkWorks Halifax; and Pat Healey did for the Legends national qualifier.

The Laker News also gave out a few t-shirts to young kids in the crowd.

The gifts included a surprise for Morgan Moody, a new mom who works with TCM TV and a familiar face at the track. Here’s the video of the surprise as shot by Dagley Media.

In the INEX National Legends qualifier, 12 cars took to Scotia Speedworld to battle for a qualifying spot in the Asphalt Nationals in November in Las Vegas.

In Strictly Hydraulics Legends heats, the no. 18 of Josh Langille and 03 of Colton Noble picked up the wins.

In the feature, Nine Mile River’s Noble, who is associated with teams with the Laker News decal on their cars, led from start to finish in a caution-free race to go to victory lane.

Windsor Junction’s Ayden Christensen took the SunBelt Rentals Outlaw Bandolero heat race win in his no. 24 bandolero, gaining some on points leader Chase MacKay who had an issue.

Christensen looked like he was going to best Dawson Noble in the no. 8 and the rest of the field to the checkered in the feature race, until Noble got behind him. He tapped him enough to get him moved up, and zoomed under him to the lead.

Noble didn’t look back and held off the challenge from Christensen in the final two laps to get the victory.

MacKay in the 71 was third on the podium.
