Speedway president Johnny Aantjes said he is very excited about the upcoming Cascar race."(Cascar) is a national series across Canada.What we have is called Cascar West Super Series, so it's cars from throughout B.C., Alberta and Saskatchewan.There are going to be three races in Vernon that are Cascar West Series races and one national event - that are cars from across Canada," said Aantjes."Ours is sort of a sub event of that."Aantjes estimates that Cascar races are the second most popular form of auto racing in Canada - behind the NASCAR Series - and he hopes to see more races in the South Okanagan next year."We are going to work on having more Cascar races.We probably are going to try to pull off a national event next year," he said."We are going to see how this one goes through."Aantjes added that other highlights of the racing season include the Streetstocks Invitational on July 3, the Gordie Mannes Late Model Sportsman Invitational on July 31 and another visit by the popular Babygrands on July 24.A new wrinkle has been added to the series of hit-to-pass races, with the introduction of a $400 Claimer Class, in conjunction with each hit-to-pass race.The Claimer Class features low-budget, four-cylinder vehicles, without the collisions of hit to pass.Aantjes added it's geared towards newcomers to the sport and that drivers are discouraged from putting too much money into their vehicle."At the end of the night people have to give their cars up, if somebody wants to buy it for $400," he said. Aantjes said the Claimer Class was launched as a way to introduce more drivers to the sport, within having to invest a lot of money in their cars.Aantjes added that physical improvements to the track include increased bleacher seating, to accommodate about 1,000 more spectators, as well as the addition of more parking."Last year we were able to park for about 1,500 people, but we could seat 2,500, so it was a little bit of an overspill onto the roads," said Aantjes.

Just having fun," said Eneas, who thanked Speedway owner Johnny Aantjes for putting the event on and said it was great to see the crowd support. "It's kind of the luck of the draw and it depends on the day you are having."

Eneas said the bulls were decent and he took nothing away from the riders who came from as far as Australia, New Zealand and Mexico.
"They are trying hard and they deserve what they get," said Eneas, who pocketed $3,346. On Sunday, he went home empty-handed and disappointed.

Aantjes was very pleased to work with Bull Riders Canada. He was very pleased with Saturday's crowd as the bleachers were packed, but Sunday didn't draw as well.
"It was a little early on a hot day," said Aantjes, who plans to do it next year and added there are things they will do differently, including having it one day. "People I spoke with were happy with the show and the event. It was a good event."
Aantjes added that having the event on Saturday only makes sense financially. The petting zoo was also popular. Next year they will focus on the bull riding and petting zoo, while the concession was also a success.
"We want to give family entertainment for locals and tourists," said Aantjes.
