Rains fell early on High River, Alberta as day 3 of Guy Weadick Days was run on an off racetrack on Saturday night in the Alberta foothills. Despite slower racetrack conditions, Rick Fraser smoked them all with a big run of 1:77.55 to take the top spot on the night.

Coming off barrel number 4 in heat number 3, Fraser, driving the Peter Niemans Water Well Drilling outfit, was the fast man on the night by a huge nearly 2 full second margin over Obrey Motowylo who settled for second place on the night. Vern Nolin placed third, while Kirk Sutherland and Mark Sutherland rounded out the top 5 times on the night.

After 3 days, Mark Sutherland has put himself into position to win the championship as he sits first in the overall aggregate standings after a 3 run total of 3:54.14. That puts him 1.64 seconds in front of day 2 overall leader Colt Cosgrave with just one run to go. Logan Gorst, Kirk Sutherland and Luke Tournier complete the top five overall after 3 runs. The driver posting the best 4-day aggregate time after Sunday’s run will be declared the champion of the 2016 Guy Weadick Day Championship.
