It is with deep sadness that we announce the sad passing of James Putman. We offer our sincere condolences to his family and friends for their sad loss.
This Wednesday (June 1st) @ Cudney's Funeral Home in Welland -- There will be a gathering of friends and family from 2-4pm.
Instead of flowers; the family are asking that donations be made to the Heart & Stroke Foundation.
FIRST NIGHT OF RACING
A busy Saturday night brought the yearly racing action back to the Welland Speedway Track!
Despite some top riders competing in the USA, the event proved to be a good night, with some great racing action!
Sadly, the speedway class was severely reduced due to a big crash which left two riders out for the night, Gary Moody high sided and broke his nose and badly gashed his upper body, and Zack Peters escaped a hard hit into the fence, but his bike was damaged beyond repair! Despite this, Kyle Legault and John Kehoe put on an awesome finish in their final!
Joseph Cann took this great picture of their photo finish!
