2013 saw Saskatchewan host a second season of vintage oval racing to follow up its excellent premier year. The year started with the series opener in Earl Grey, Sask on Dec 29/12. The first race of the year seen a great turn out with plenty of new riders out for their first race as well as established racers from the United States and western Canada. Tony Ottem and his Arctic Cat SNO PRO proved to be the fastest sled of the day sweeping 4 classes as well as the 10 Lap Premier race.  IFS sleds also put on a great show. 

 

The Vicon ENT. Classic Saskatchewan Championship was next up on Feb 19/13. Another great attendance was present and some great racing took place. Derek Kittler piloted his 1973 Arctic Cat EXT Porter to an exciting race to take the checkered flag and be crowned the 2013 Saskatchewan Champion.

 

Nipawin was host to the third race of the season on Mar 3/13. Their big track allowed for some very fast and close racing. Being the last race of the season, the racing was extremely close as everyone had a good season to get sleds tuned perfectly. Cory Raddysh capped off a great season with his fast Mercury and ran a strong day and took the 10 Lap Premier Race.

 

Points were awarded every race all season depending upon placement in each class, and racers provided a tight race right up to the final race to see who would be crowned the number 1 driver for the season. In the end Scott Zarkow and his Polaris TX proved to be the strongest racer all season long as he took the title. Kyle Boxall  finished a close second on a Polaris Starfire followed by Terry Bonner in third on his Yamaha.

 

The 2013 race season built on the great success seen in 2012 and built further excitement anticipated in 2014. In total over $7500 dollar in cash and prizes were paid out to winners. Over 50 racers raced in the series from all over Canada and the United States.

 

Again thanks is need to the many sponsors and volunteers who make the season possible. Keith Boxall and Gary Gibson build the tracks and put many, many hours to help the races run smooth and well organized. Vicon ENT, Intech Graphics, Northstar Skis and KG Fitzgerald Pub and Grill, were all major sponsors for the season as well as additional sponsors including  Agri-Sports Regina, Rec-Supply, Saskatoon, Alberta Relic Riders and Vintage Snowmobile Magazine, Wahl Bros racing and Vintagesleds.com all helped make the year a great success. Also thanks to many Local sponsors including, Thomas Motors, Nipawin Chrysler Yamaha, and Seasons Edge.

 

2014 is shaping up to be an even bigger year of racing as we are hosting 5 races in the series and have an anticipated payout of $10 000 cash and prizes.  Competition will be fierce, sleds will be flying and motors will be roaring, Saskatchewan Oval Racing is stronger than ever.
