The Canadian Motorcycle Drag Racing Association entertained race fans in northern British Columbia on August 23rd and 24th when it brought its 2014 National Points Series to Fort St. John’s Northern Lights Raceway.
Local racer, Burke Forster dominated the Blackjack’s Roadhouse Pro Modified class, qualifying first overall and clinching the win with a personal best ET of 6.842 seconds and the weekends fastest MPH of 191.89. The win, which was Forster’s first CMDRA trophy at his home track, moved him into first place in the 2014 season point standings. Fellow Fort St. John resident, Bruce Romak, took home top honours in the Hot Harley class.
Screamin’ Eagle Pro Dragster saw Edmonton’s Hi-Per Al Miles and his FFR Racing team keep their winning streak alive, qualifying No. 1 and defeating Virden MB’s Doug Hadley in the final elimination round. Meanwhile, Jeff Pitre, of Yellowknife, NWT claimed victory in Screamin’ Eagle V-Rod Destroyer for the second consecutive event and also won the Screamin’ Eagle Stock XL class, setting up championship battles in these tightly contested classes with only two races remaining in the 2014 season.
Full results from the Northern Nationals are available on the CMDRA website. Next, the CMDRA National Points Series heads back to Edmonton’s Castrol Raceway for the Prairie Nationals on Sept 6th & 7th.
