One track supporting another after theft

The Agassiz Motocross Track has had extensive damage after a break in and theft earlier in June.

When Leslie McKellar heard about the damage, it brought up the devastation that was felt at the neighbouring Agassiz Speedway last year.

So, this weekend's racing event there will be a fundraiser in effect to help the Agassiz motocross group get back on their feet.

"I will have a bucket at the pit gate kiosk and request everyone bring a loonie, so that we can help defray the costs to this lovely little track," McKellar said. "If you can spare this, I am sure the motocross track will appreciate it. That is what neighbours are for. So, redeem your bottles and cans and let us see what we can do to help out."

It is Pirate and Princess Day at the Agassiz Speedway on Saturday, sponsored by the Harrison Agassiz Chamber of Commerce. The evening's events include Hornets, mini stocks, midgets and compact hit to pass.

There will even be prizes for the best dressed pirates and princesses.
