After a season of taking to the oval track it was all down to two final races for the Quesnel Auto Racers Association (QARA) to decide the 2014 points winners.
The drivers revved their engines, tires screeching as the rounded corners at break-neck speed for the last event of the season, the Fall Classic Invitational Sept. 27 – 28.
For the Quesnel Iron Street Stocks driver Byron Hesselgrave raced in with a tough to beat 65 points the first day of racing, followed by 57 points the next day. Hesselgrave has shown himself to be tough competition, taking first place overall with a total of 277 points, a staggering 78 points more than this years second place winner.
Jason Howlett brought in a combined score of 66 points for the final two days of racing, boosting his final score up to 199 points for a second place win.
Third place overall went to driver Jesse Fisher. Though Fisher scored higher than Howlett during the final days of racing, adding a total of 76 points to his final score count, he was unable to knock fellow QARA member Howlett out of second place.
For the Fireworks Warehouse Mini Stocks driver Dustin Brown flew by his opponents with a final 34 point lead after the Fall Classic, taking first place overall with a final score of 296 points.
With a grand total of 265 points driver Brian Zipser raced in for a second place win overall.
It was a close call for Mike Garcia, falling only four points short of second place with a total of 261 points.
QARA awards dinner and dance to celebrate the 2014 points winners will be held at the Billy Barker Casino Showroom Saturday, Nov. 22.
With frost soon to be settling on the track drivers will pack away their gear and store their cars until next years racing season.
