We've had participation be pretty strong," said Penticton Speedway owner Johnny Aantjes.
Aantjes has some concern about how many drivers will come from that series because of which races they can collect points, but after talking to some people, he feels there will be reasonable support. "Hopefully next year we can work with the point system a little bit. Make some small modifications to make it better," he said. With sunny weather expected and temperatures at 34 degrees, Aantjes said "who wouldn't want to be here? Aantjes said the hornet class looks really good and expects the same from the street stock.

Penticton Speedway owner Johnny Aantjes was very happy with the Bull-A-Rama, especially with it attracting a crowd of over 2,000.
"We had a really good crowd. Some really good bull riding," he said, adding that having the bull riding stage front and centre worked out better than the previous year. Two bull riders did get hurt, with one sustaining a broken femur, but Aantjes said it was still a good night of riding. Aantjes said this year's event was a complete turn around from the first year. The success they had is something they can build off as they work towards making it an annual event. "What I really liked about it is we had a lot of people from out of town who came specifically for the event," said Aantjes, who added they put in work with the Penticton Hospitality Association to get those visitors.

Penticton Speedway president Johnny Aantjes said Saturday's race likely features the highest profile drivers to ever compete at Penticton's quarter-mile oval track."CASCAR is definitely the class of car that has the highest standards for a national competition (in Canada)," he said.The Penticton race is one of only five B.C. stops on the circuit.Vernon hosts three races this year, while a fourth is held in Quesnel.Aantjes said he has been trying to land a CASCAR race at the Speedway since purchasing the facility."We've had to continually try to improve the facility and at the same time CASCAR has been trying to increase their western racing," he said."So between them getting a little more exposure in the west and our facility coming up in its overall standards, we've managed to put a race together."Aantjes added that if all goes according to plan this weekend, the CASCAR circuit will make regular stops at the Speedway in future racing seasons.Aantjes notes that the speed of the vehicles used on the CASCAR tour are similar to the Sportsman class that already races in Penticton, but CASCAR itself uses a much more stringent set of rules for its drivers."The CASCAR Sportsmen - the Super Series that will be coming to town - have a very stringent set of rules and they stick to them across the board," said Aantjes."It's a national level of racing, that's one of the biggest differences.The cars that are going to be competing here have the exact same set of rules as cars that compete in (Eastern Canada)."Aantjes added that in addition to the CASCAR 200 race, Saturday will also feature the dwarf cars, street stocks and CASCAR Juniors.Aantjes notes that he is hoping to have a unique view of Saturday's race.He said he expects to be able to race against the CASCAR drivers."I have a CASCAR.We're just trying to get it put together right now, but I believe we'll be out there Saturday night," he said.
