As the summer heat pours over the Okanagan Valley, it’s time to put the drag cars to rest until fall.

Father’s Day at Richter Pass Motorplex east of Osoyoos was a hit for more than just dads.

Wine Country Racing Association hosted the third of its five events scheduled for 2018. Here are results from the day’s racing:

Sportsmans’ Bracket

Osoyoos had the showdown locked in on Sunday for the Sportsmans’ Bracket.  Brad Baxendale triumphed in his 1984 Chevy Camaro over Glenn Taylor in his 1990 Ford Mustang.

Pro Bracket

Shane Williamson raced the Pro trophy home to Enderby in his 1967 Camaro; beating out Oliver’s Cliff Meeds in his 1949 Ford truck.

Super Pro

Jim Wanner brought his 1969 Valiant a long way from Prince George before driving it to victory over Grand Forks Levi Wierberg in his 1981 Buick Regal.


Lorne Stavinga went back home to Grand Forks a happy gentleman. Stavinga zipped the trophy on his 2001 Suzuki 1300.
