White Rock stock car driver Korbin Thomas was victorious in Victoria for the second straight year, after taking the checked flag in the Canada 200 at the Western Speedway.
Thomas, 38, made his move to the front of the pack with less than 40 laps to go in the 200-lap endurance race – most races are 100 laps – and built up a lead before crossing the finish line first, ahead of fellow racers Geoff Morris and Jason Tarasenko, who rounded out the podium in second and third, respectively.
“It went well – we didn’t wreck, so that’s the important thing,” saud Thomas, who has been racing since the early ‘90s.
The Canada 200 was the last race in the ASA Advanced Testing Racing series; the win moved Thomas into fifth place in the overall standings, despite missing one race earlier in the season. The series competes on tracks throughout B.C.
