Congratulations to Doug Casson on yet another Championship for the Derringers.
The Canadian Motorcycle Drag Racing Association brought its 2016 season to a close at Mission Raceway Park on September 24th and 25th. With multiple class championships undecided, racers arrived in British Columbia’s lower mainland anxious to battle for critical points in the season standings.
Despite having increased his points lead in the Hawaya Racing Products Pro Dragster class during Saturday qualifying, a first round exit during Sunday’s elimination rounds left Fort Saskatchewan’s Doug Casson in the unenviable position of having others determine his championship fate. With top three contender Quinn Olson also losing in the first round, Al Miles of Edmonton Alberta had the opportunity to claim a fifth consecutive title, but his challenge ended with a second round loss to Washington’s Ron Anderson, leaving Casson on top of the season points standings to win his first ever CMDRA Championship.
