The first 4X4 races of the season were held at the end of May at the Port Alberni Motorsports Park. And participants and onlookers couldn’t have asked for better weather.

The only cloudy spot was when Curtis Scheley rolled his jeep during the heat race Wheel to Wheel and he was unable to participate in the main event.

Sean Lowe of Nanimo rolled his two-wheel-drive Ford Ranger in the main event and was a little upset that it happened when he had less than a third of the event to go.

Drivers will be back at the park this Saturday, June 25 and Sunday, June 26 for the second weekend of racing.
