Fort St. John’s Mikayla Fedderly won both ‘box’ class events at the Northern Lights Raceway Aug. 6 and 7, recording speeds of just under 110 miles-per-hour.

Northern Lights Raceway had its first real event of the 2022 season.

Other than showers Saturday morning, and some timing glitches with the new system, the Done Rite Daylighting Nationals went off without a hitch this past weekend.

Fort St. John drivers Mikayla Fedderly, Ken Soderquist, and Bruce Romak among those that had first-place showings in their classes.
