ESTEVAN - It took an extra day, but the Estevan Motor Speedway was able to complete its Canada Day long weekend doubleheader.
The track held a regularly scheduled program on July 1, but it had to postpone the program for July 2 due to a short but powerful storm that drenched the track hours before the program was to start. The July 2 races were pushed back a day to July 3.
