Champions were crowned at the Estevan Motor Speedway on August 23, as Aaron Turnbull, Gregg Mann and Brandon Beeter were the overall points winners in their respective classes. Aaron Turnbull entered the night only four points behind his father, Ed, for top spot of the modified class. The younger Turnbull's second place finish was good enough to finish with the overall points chase with 346 points. Ed Turnbull finished eighth in the feature, and wound up with 344 points for the year. This is the second time that Aaron Turnbull has won the points title in Estevan. “I've been close a quite a few times, since the last time I won it 2007. So it was getting frustrating coming up short every time, but it nice to win it again, for sure,” Aaron Turnbull said. It looked like Aaron was going to fall short again as he and Ed started the race 11th and 12th respectively. Aaron Turnbull said that even if he did have a good finish, that he expected his father would be in the top five as well, and would have had enough points to win the championship, but that wasn't the case. The track championship capped an impressive year for Aaron Turnbull. He won four of the final six features in Estevan, and was the overall winner of the Dakota Classic Modified Tour. Kody Scholpp ended up winning the feature after taking a commanding lead mid-race. With the win, he moved up to third in the overall standings with 315 points. Aaron Turnbull had a big charge at the end of the race and was contesting Scholpp on the last few laps but didn't take the top spot. Mike Hagen finished third in the feature. He was up front throughout the race and had the lead at one time, Travis Hagen finished fourth. Mann had a commanding lead in the standing before the race and all he had to do was finish to become the champion, but he didn't see it that way as he won the feature. “(Just finishing) is not the way you go out, I'm going to try to win just like every other night,” he said Mann started 11th in the feature and worked his way up throughout the race. He took the top spot with a few laps to go. Rocky Alexander finished second, Dustin Byler was third and Geoff Mann was fourth. Gregg Mann finished the year with 360 points. Byler was second with 329, and Alexander – who won the track championship the last three years – was third with 327. In the hobby stock class Brandon Beeter came into the night leading and his second place finish was enough to take the championship. “It means a lot to get championship here in Canada,” said Beeter, who is from Minot. He noted that there is a lot of competition in the division, as there are a great young crop of drivers, he said. Beeter wound up with 414 points. His brother, Brock, was second with 409, and Brad King, who won the feature race on August 23, wound up third with 373. King and Brandon Beeter battled for top spot throughout the feature, and it was King who eventually emerged victorious. Brock Beeter was third. The speedway still has a couple events remaining this year. The first will be the Eve of Destruction on Friday, September 13. Then there will be the Enduro race on September 22.
