VICTORIA/VALEMOUNT, BC – Team NPP competes on both sides of the border Saturday and Sunday, June 15th and 16th.  Sadly races in the United States and Canada are currently weather permitting.  Edson, Alberta’s Josh Shuflada will drive the Northern Provincial Pipelines/RCE #81 Dodge at the grand re-opening of Rocky Mountain Speedway in Valemount, British Columbia.  Lane Zerbin will make stops at two tracks in Washington State with the NPP/C-Force Marine #81 IMCA Modified.  Zerbin hopes to compete Saturday night at Alger’s Skagit Speedway and at Elma’s Grays Harbor Raceway on Sunday night.  “The weatherman is not on our side,” admits Zerbin, “rain is expected Saturday but it does look decent for Sunday.”  The Victoria, British Columbia driver says weather has to be decent for both nights.  “If we can’t make it a double we probably won’t go.”  Ironically a rainy forecast stopped Zerbin from traveling to Elma, Washington to compete in his Northern Provincial Pipelines/C-Force Marine #81 Modified last month.  “If we don’t race this weekend we will attempt Elma next weekend (June 22nd) for a one-day show.”

Josh Shuflada meanwhile is also looking at a troublesome weekend weather forecast in eastern British Columbia.  The Edson, Alberta driver is competing at the grand re-opening of Rocky Mountain Speedway.  The Valemount, British Columbia track closed its doors back in 2003 after hosting race events for 10-years.  Team NPP founder Dwight Kennedy competed and was victorious dozens of times at the Valemount track in the Northern Provincial Pipelines #81 Dodge back in the 1990’s.  Shuflada is hoping to continue the winning tradition for Team NPP at the Valemount facility this weekend.
