It was all red

Smashing Canucks demolish Americans in the final go-around

Is was Canada versus the U.S. in a two-day battle on the track at Saratoga Speedway

After Mother Nature washed away the previous race card, nothing was stopping this past weekend’s annual Canadian American Demolition Derby at Saratoga Speedway.

Saturday’s night of the derby saw Team USA take an early lead from qualifying, taking a 208-192 point lead into the tire changing competition, which team USA also won, beating team Canada by 13.998 seconds to extend their lead to 228-192 going into the backwards race.

Again, it was another victory for Team USA to increase its lead to 253-192 going into the derby.

An action-packed 20-minute derby saw dead cars everywhere with extreme hits on every lap, but, once again, Team USA edged out Canada, beating us by 12 points going into Sunday.

Just the Demolition Derby was scheduled for Sunday, and going into it Canada was at a 73-point disadvantage.

After about 10 minutes of demolition, Team Canada was declared the winner of the demolition, and after all the points were added up, Team Canada made an amazing comeback to win by 32 points, re-claiming the title of Canadian-American Demolition Derby champions!

Extra laps…Sept. 7 will mark the final appearance of the Drifting Competition at Saratoga Speedway.

This will be the fifth round of the drifting competition, with the champion being crowned after a night of amazing drifting.

Heads-up, drag racing will also be making its last appearance of the year on Saturday, which pleased the fans on its first appearance.

Due to the Aug. 24 rain out, the motorcycles have been added on to the racing card on the weekend, which will be their double points championship night. The IMCA Modifieds and the Bomber cars will round out the night of racing.
