Estevan’s Dylan Gonas claimed his first Estevan Motor Speedway Enduro race in his first ever race.
After an hour and a half of yellow and green flag racing on a chilly, cloudy Saturday afternoon, after all the laps were counted, Gonas had run one more lap that second place finisher Jason Knutsen.
The race is open to none of the normal stock car or modified car drivers, leading to a lot of green drivers making rookie mistakes. But once the checkered flag flew, Gonas’ name was the top.
“I was nervous to begin with but as soon as I was out there it was like riding a bike,” said Gonas, whose brother Devon is a stock car driver during the regular EMS season. “It felt natural out there and I tired my best not to wreck anybody.”
