N.P.P. racing gets the brakes over weekend
But the event was flawed, as the race was stopped before the N.P.P. qualifying heat could get underway, due to the rapid drying nature on the second turn of the track put an end to the competitive racing.
Starting at 3 p.m., the event ended around 5 after the hobby stock car feature event, which was won by Danielle Clark.
The Northern Provincial Pipeline series was through Drumheller a couple years ago, and raced at Hidden Valley Motorsports Park.
Event goers were offered their money back, but were told if they kept their admission bracelets, they would be good for the Demolition Derby at the Stampede Grounds on August 15 and 16, where N.P.P. racing will be back, as the organization has teamed up with the Drumheller Stampede and Ag. Society to bring racing action to the derby.
The race was in Lethbridge on Saturday night, and is heading to Okotoks this weekend.
The next event at the Dinosaur Downs is the WPCA Dodge Pro Tour Chuckwagon event, which is being held July 24, 26, and 26.
August 22 will see the Tractor Pull and Agricultural Trade Show at the Downs as well.
