This past weekend, Peterborough Speedway hosted their year-end banquet. 2016 Limited Late Model Champion Rick Spencer-Walt was in attendance, and honored for his yearly accomplishments.
On top of the championship honor, Walt picked up the Best Appearing Car Award at the banquet. Shout-out to Joe Chisholm Jr. for the design, and Michael Paupst & Marilyn Goodine at Auto Trim Design for doing it up.
Across the season this year, Spencer-Walt was able to put up numbers which earned attention from everyone across the province. It’s worth nothing in 13 races races this season (nine at Peterborough, three at Sunset, one at Sauble), Spencer-Walt posted five wins and 12 top-six finishes, including a victory in the Chase for the Colours event. He dominated the Autumn Colours Classic feature as well, leading 73 of 75 laps before contact and a flat tire resulted in an scheduled trip down pit road.
“Winning the championship is a big achievement for our small team,” he said previously in September. “The work my guys put in this year meant a lot to me. Glad we could bring it home for them!”
