Clean sweep for South Surrey race-car driver

Tracey Hazard nished first in all three of her races at the Mission Raceway for the Spec Mazda Miata Championship series.

It was a clean sweep for South Surrey auto-racing phenom Tracey Hazard this past weekend at the International Conference of Sport Car Clubs (ICSCC) Labour Daze triple-header.

The 42-year-old race-car driver qualified first and finished first in all three of her races at the Mission Raceway for the Spec Mazda Miata Championship series, which includes tracks throughout the Pacific Northwest.

“It was a shock,” she told Peace Arch News Thursday. “I wasn’t expecting it.”

The sweep is just another accomplishment the four-year racing pro can add to her already extensive list, which includes being named driver of the year in the CACC (Canadian) series.

With the season wrapping up in October, Hazard’s team, which includes husband Tom – who doubles as crew chief and mechanic – will look to compete on a pro series in California next year.
