Motocross circuit stops in Carlyle

              Engines revved, dirt flew, and riders soared over the weekend at the Bowen Rekken Memorial Motocross Track where riders with the Southeast Corner Racing Circuit (SCRC) competed in Carlyle on Saturday, July 23. Practice began at 9, with races following at 10:30 a.m.

                The SCRC is a circuit focused on southeastern Saskatchewan drawing racers from both Saskatchewan and Manitoba to compete. Races are held in Estevan, Oxbow, Weyburn, and Carlyle throughout the summer and fall.

                Competitors at the event included young, novice riders to veteran riders as well as a women’s class. For many, winning was the goal, but for the majority who participated, a chance to learn and improve their skills was enjoyed amongst their motocross family in the first race of the circuit’s season.

                The next action for the SCRC will see races in Estevan on Aug. 4, Regina Sept 10 and 11, back to Carlyle on Sept. 17, and finally to Oxbow for a double header on Sept 24 and 25.

                The Carlyle course was established 10 years ago by friends and family of Bowen Rekken after his passing. Bowen had loved the sport and his friends wanted to do something in his memory. Approaching his parents Kelly and Susan about the idea the track soon became a reality with dedication to the project by those involved.
