Hold on to your hats boys and girls! Another great season of ice oval racing begins this weekend (December 6th and 7th) in Beausejour, Manitoba. This is always an exciting time of year and I just love watching all of the new equipment roll out onto the big track at Beausejour. For a lot of these teams, its “payoff” time. Time to see if all the hard work in the offseason pays off.
For us here at Benoy Racing, we are full of nervous anticipation as we head into our first full season competing in the Champ 440 ranks. We were able to get out on the ice on Sunday for some much needed test time with the new machine.
In a quick glance at the registered drivers for the Pro Champ 440 class, it looks to be a World Class field. With 10 drivers registered already, I am expecting to see more than 20 entries in the Pro Champ field for the Season Opener at the CPTC track by the time registration closes on Wednesday.
