Saturday Rain Doesn't Stop Scholpp's Weekend Reign

Greg Cybulski (May 19, 2015) Weather was the biggest topic on the lips of most Canadians this past Victoria Day long weekend.  More so with Southern Saskatchewan's 2 primary oval dirt tracks.  With rain in the forecast, Estevan Motor Speedway officials made the decision to pull the plug on Saturday's scheduled races.

Swift Current's Speedy Creek Raceway was scheduled to race on Saturday and Sunday.  Rain spoiled the opener which was rescheduled for the holiday Monday.  When all was said and done, 2 days of racing took place at the Southwest Saskatchewan bullring.

Estevan's Kody Scholpp stole the show by winning 3 of 4 Features this weekend.  On Sunday, Scholpp raced his #22 IMCA Modified to victory lane and followed it up with a win behind the wheel of Stefan Klym's 5K Street Stock.  Rain date Monday was just as good for Kody as he finished 2nd place in the IMCA Modified feature and then found the checkered flag once again in the 5K Street Stock.
