North American Big Rigs Tore it Up at MVS

KMVT News provided race-fans with big-time entertainment this weekend by bringing the Big Rigs to the Magic Valley. It was a first for the Magic Valley Speedway, the Canadian North American Big Rigs Association successfully made history despite the threat of bad weather. The stands were jam packed with enthusiastic race-fans waiting to see this inaugural event in which the big trucks would be battling it out.

The fun began early with a dominant performance from KMVT News reporters Nikki Kay and Rachel Holt in the Extreme Staffing and Payroll Double Deckers main event.  After a series of great heat racing action, it was Sherriff Doug McFall from the Jerome County Sherriff’s Dept. who battled back to win the Annual Sherrif’s Race at the MVS.  

After the novelty events were through, it was time for the Big Boys with their big toys to show why they were the featured event of the night. The fans were ecstatic and on their feet as the drop of the green flag brought with it a blinding amount of black smoke, coupled with the riveting sound of the biggest and baddest turbo charged diesel racing engines to have ever been on the track. After the smoke settled, it was Cory McMeakin in the #91 Big Rig coming across the strip for the win.  

The Northwest Pro-4 Alliance Series were also on hand Saturday night and showed up big with a field of 19 cars. In a rain shortened race of just 26 laps, it was Eddie Secord who proved to have the strongest car. Starting from the front row, Secord made short work of the race by driving away and holding off Rick Thompson to take the win. Kenney Chandler also had a strong run by holding onto a third place finish.

The feature division, National Guard Late Models, were unfortunately only able to complete their heat race in which rookie driver Mitch Pehrson took home his first win in the series. 

Scotty Neal won the heat race for the IHOP Hornets with Chad Everett finishing 2nd and Jeremia Eden rounding out the top three.

The Quale’s Electronics Jr. Stingers were the only divisions to complete a main event and it was Samantha Shindle who took home the win.
