If you are a faithful reader of my blog, you will remember that we sponsor a local drag racer. When you see our truck ( the one with the ducky on it that you can’t miss) travelling between here and Gimli pulling a really nice purple car that would be Dean. Well this has been a very successful summer for Dean. After racing all summer at his home track in Gimli, Manitoba he qualified to compete in the IRHA Summit Super Series divisional run off in Edmonton, Alberta on Sept 16-18. Unfortunately the week before the competition Dean’s car broke down. Luckily he was able to borrow a car and had just enough time to get it ready for the Edmonton Race. This setback left no time to try out the car prior to the race. But with only two test passes the morning of the race, he was still able to pull off the win. So next week if you see the Ducky Truck somewhere between here and Virginia pulling a really nice black car, that will be Dean. Dean and his crew will be competing in the Summit World Finals in Petersburg, VA. There are only 16 drivers from all around the world that are invited to compete. We would like to send a huge congratulations to Dean Smith and wish him good luck during the finals next weekend.
This is Dean’s regular car that helped him make it to Edmonton. A 1973 Camaro that has run 9.13at 149mph in the quarter mile.
This is the car he will be taking to Virginia a 1967 Cougar
Have a great trip guys. Sit back, hold on and enjoy the ride.
