ST CATHARINES, ON — official release — The Bicknell Racing Products (BRP) CanAm tour returns to Freedom Speedway on Friday night August 8.
Mikey Wonderling, a second generation race car driver, is anxious to get this event in the books and is praying for continued good luck. Mikey leads both the Series tour points and Freedom’s BRP 360 late model point contests.
Mikey’s anxiety level grew a bit last night when Ron Scharf announced that Jeremy Wonderling, his younger brother, had accepted an invitation to fill the seat of Scharf’s #65. This is the car that Steve Dixon has won with twice at Freedom in Series weekly events. The car and Jeremy are both very good together, which will produce some excitement.
Glenn Whritenour, the many time Woodhull champion, plans to make his 2014 tour debut on Friday. Dave DuBois, the many time Raceway 5 champion, will return to Freedom with a mission to redeem himself from a near miss in the earlier tour event. Mike Wonderling has won three Freedom weekly events and does not plan to slow down on Friday. He does plan to stay off the wall. All of this adds to Mikey’s anxiety level.
Troy Shuknecht took over the operation of Freedom Speedway for the 2014 season with a commitment to returning the fine old racing facility to its former glory. His commitment is obvious to all that have attended any of the events there this year. The grounds are manicured, the track racy, and the competition excellent. If you have not seen this for yourself, come on out Friday night. The forecast is for great weather and great racing.
Freedom Speedway gates will open at 5:00 for racing at 7:00. Updates on both the Freedom Speedway and BRP CanAm Late Model Series Facebook pages.
