A group of local mud racers from the North Cariboo Mud Racers Association had a successful weekend in Valemount, B.C., Aug 7 – 8 bringing home well- deserved trophies.

This was the second race of the North West Mud Racing Associations series.

Ty Lefebvre, 16 years old, won first place in tractor class along with winning fastest pass with a 4.35 sec in Rebel Child a ’79 Ford with a 1000 horsepower nitrous fed 532 stroker big block Ford.

Ty would like to thank his sponsors, Bob Diewold, Fountain Tire Quesnel and VTL Motorsports for helping him this race season!

Mike Rempel in Mud Fever placed third in the paddle class and after only four passes in his new mud racer, Mike was welcomed into the two-second club racing his personal best of 2.99 seconds. Mud Fever runs a Blown Alcohol 540 big block Dart making around 2000 hp.

Tony Dreger placed first in ProCut Class and Fast Pass with 2.7 with Ghost Rider. This is a completely custom built blown alcohol engine based on a boss 429 Ford making more than 3000 horsepower.
