Updated Modified information

Two race teams ran with heavy hearts on Saturday night.

And both teams were able to pay tribute to a departed friend the best way they could - with feature wins at South Buxton Raceway.

Chatham’s Jeff Daniels captured the Schinkels Gourmet Meats UMP Modified mid-season championship and Blenheim’s Shawn Hope won the Autotech Bombers feature.

Kyle Hope also won a checkered flag, taking the first heat race in the Tirecraft Mini-Mods.

The three Hope brothers - Brett, Kyle and Shawn - along with Daniels, displayed ‘Teddy’ decals on their cars in memory of Devin Tedford, a 21-year-old Blenheim native who died last Monday.
