DRUMHELLER, AB (October 6, 2017)- Thunder Over The Valley Season Finale Dinosaur Downs Speedway.

Despite rain warnings and cold winds, the cars and fans turned out for one last race weekend in the badlands.

Saturday we had a great moment when 19 year old Mitch Reneau took his first main event win in his #44 IMCA Modified car. Car owner and dad, Mike Reneau who was driving the #21 Mod in the same event jumped from his car and ran up to proudly congratulate his son. The audience gave a big cheer for this talented young driver, as they too had been waiting for his first main win.

Sunday the track champions were named.
