The weather was the talk of the day as severe storms rolled around the area, but kept away from the Belleville 1/2 mile event, which left a dry and very rough track. The track became very rutted with the different classes taking part in their practice sessions.

We welcomed many speedway riders to the event including the welcomed return to Canadian Speedway by Frenchman Nick Fafard, Nick back on the bike after 3 years away. Was joined by returning riders Drew and John Kehoe, and regulars, Aaron Hesmer, Mike Hammond, Tommy Hensby, Terry Rideout, Glen Brown, Gary Moody and local rider Rob Dixon.

The practice session ended Tommy Hensby's day in less than 2 minutes, coming out of turn 2 he hit a rut and his foot slipped off the foot rest and flipped it backwards under the rest, he immediately pulled up and was treated by the track medical staff, who recommended a hospital visit as they suspected he had fractured his ankle, but following x-rays at his home town hospital, he was given the all clear and told to rest the sprained and swollen ankle.

The other riders all struggled during practice to get a read on the rough track surface.

Round 1 - Heat 1:
Nick Fafard got a good start, leading Glen Brown, Aaron Hesmer, Gary Moody and Rob Dixon into turn one. The disaster as Fafard hit a rut and slid out on turn 4, as he slid out Glen Brown was left with nowhere to go, and slid out going straight under the safety fence. After some treatment, Glen Brown was up, he shook off the crash and took part in the restart.

1st: Hesmer - 2nd: Fafard - 3rd: Brown - 4th: Dixon - 5th: Moody (DNF)

Round 1 - Heat 2:
Mike Hammond led John Kehoe, Terry Rideout and Drew Kehoe from the gate, but on lap 2 in corner 4, John Kehoe went under Hammond to hold the win.

1st: J. Kehoe - 2nd: Hammond - 3rd: Rideout - 4th: D. Kehoe

Round 2 - Heat 1:
From the gate, Aaron Hesmer beat out Glen Brown, Rob Dixon and Gary Moody, Nick Fafard suffered mechanical troubles on the line and did not start.

1st: Hesmer - 2nd: Brown - 3rd: Dixon - 4th: Moody - 5th: Fafard (DNS)

Round 2 - Heat 2:
A great race, with John Kehoe gating ahead of Mike Hammond, Terry Rideout chased him hard, and they both had a last lap side by side duel with Hammond grabbing the second place by just a wheel.

1st: J. Kehoe - 2nd: Hammond - 3rd: Rideout - 4th: D. Kehoe

Aaron Hesmer pipped John Kehoe on the line to grab the win of the night. Mike Hammond despite his valiant effort was unable to catch the front runners, as Rob Dixon, Terry Rideout, Nick Fafard and Gary Moody pressed hard, sadly Glen Brown pulled up and didn't finish and Drew Kehoe suffered mechanical problems and did not start.

Winner : Hesmer - 2nd: J. Kehoe- 3rd: Hammond - 4th: Dixon - 5th: Rideout - 6th: Fafard - 7th: Moody - 8th: Brown (DNF) - 9th: D. Kehoe (DNS)
