The dust was flying Aug. 27–28 with the Alberni Motorsports Park 4X4 races.

The race was without serious incident until the main event on Sunday when Darryl Hickey’s hood took flight and covered up his windshield. Not being able to see didn’t work in this race and so he had to pull over.

Raymond Lover came back strong after last month’s blown gasket, looking like he’s still in the running.

If you want to find out how this ends, the next and final races of the 2011 season will be Saturday, Sept. 24 at 1 p.m. and Sunday, Sept. 25 at noon.
