In 1961, the same year Ham the Chimp rocketed into space aboard the Mercury-Redstone 2, Eldon Rasmussen blew past the competition at the Western Canada stock-car championship at Western Speedway, cementing a legacy that led him to the Canadian Motorsport Hall of Fame. Since then, the 4/10-mile oval has seen countless motorcars screech across its pavement, including late-model stock cars and mini figure-eights; some day, perhaps scientists will perfect souped-up shopping carts to grace its track.
This season, Western Speedway's racing tradition continues with events such as the Strawberry Cup on June 9, featuring non-wing sprints and old-timey cars. During the special Dukes of Hazard Night event on June 23, demo cars and trucks prime the crowd for spectacular stunts from Josh "The Crusher" Beckel. Under an open sky filled with drivers ejected from their seats, up to 3,000 fans can watch the events from the bleachers or head underneath to the concessions counter for a slice of pizza to wave as a flag.
