The day started off with rain but the forecast said it would stop at noon so it was off to EIR. It was cloudy through out the day & night but did not rain. The 1st part of the day was practice followed by Qualifying. Car #0 Tony Lambert had bad luck as he crashed in corner 3 ending his day before racing. EIR has a birthday program as kids get a ride in cars around the track. Before the Super Late Model race fans had an autograph session with the drivers.

The 200 Lap Super Late Model race was full of action & stories. Car 17 Trevor Emond had an interesting day as the car he brought to the track had problems, so he went back to shop to get his other car. At Qualifying he won pole & then his car was on rails as he led most of the race that ended after he blew a hose on the car. His consolation prize would have to be his son Tyler Emond won his 1st Baby Grand Feature race. There was a Red Flag for a big crash with Car 99 Dean Braham in corner 3. Caution in corner 1 for a crash between Car 64 Dean Craig & Car 72 Thomas Gordon. Caution in corner 1 for Car 36 Grant Brown having contact with Car 49L Brian Levant causing a spin.

Interview with Car 09 Clint Habart from Cranbrook B.C. 200 Lap Super Late Model winner.

Velocity: “So was it worth it to the drive to EIR?”

Clint Habart: “We have raced 3 weekends in a row, Stateline 2 weekends ago, Saskatoon last weekend & then here, we have just been touring around.”

Velocity: “So you guys rack up the miles?”

Clint Habart: “I have 3 cars this one is my Canadian car & I have 2 US cars.

Velocity: “So it makes it easier to cross the border with-out a car?’

Clint Habart: “I have one more at my home in Cranbrook like this, then I have a brand new one I house in a shop down there.”

Velocity: “I forgot Cranbrook is quite a distance south so you are close to the border.”

Clint Habart: “Yeah Spokane is 3 1/2 hours, Calispel 2 1/2 hours, Stateline 3 1/2 hours, I like this & like Saskatoon also.”

Velocity: “So it has been quite a while to have Super Late Models here.”

Clint Habart: “Trevor Emond asked me to come down, he is a good buddy of mine & we race in the States a lot, I was more than happy to come.”

Velocity: “How did you find the race?”

Clint Habart: “It was great, bide my time, bide my time & got the right spot at the right time. My car wasn’t really good had an issue with it & was also lucky.”

Velocity: “They just did a repave 2 years ago, did you find nice & smooth.”

Clint Habart: “Really Nice, one of smoothest places I have ever been.”

Velocity: “Track size is this what you guys usually run on?”

Clint Habart: “I run half mile a lot, Spokane is a half mile, Yakima is a half mile, Stateline is a third, Calispel & Saskatoon are a quarter mile.”

Velocity: “So you never get wide open on these tracks?”

Clint Habart: “You just gear for it, you are wide open you just lower the gear.”

Velocity: “Congratulations on the win, it was a great race to watch, lots of action for the fans.”

Clint Habart: “Hopefully they will have us back & we will come back.”

Velocity: “So where are you guys off to now?”

Clint Habart: “Montana 200 up in Calispel, that is a 4 day race in Calispel July 15, 16, 17 & 18. That is a big one $25,000 to win.”

Velocity: “How many cars will they get for that?”

Clint Habart: “They usually get 45 cars, but they only start 24, you have to make it in.”

Velocity: “Do they have a Qualifying race?”

Clint Habart: “Yes the fast 12 will get in on time,` then the rest get put into a 40 lap heat race, then take 6 out that then do another heat race & take 6 out of that.”
