The CPTC Board of Directors is happy to announce the addition of yet another new name to the oldest ice oval racing trophy in the world, albeit not a new name to racing in Beausejour: That of MATT SCHULZ out of Wausau, Wisconsin. Although Matt didn’t earn any money in Saturday’s Pro Champ 440 final, he managed to outrace everyone to the finish line in Sunday’s final, capturing the Canadian Power Toboggan Championships’ coveted title, and went home with a $2920 cheque for his efforts. Congratulations, Matt!
Hot on his heels was JORDAN WAHL of Greenbush, Minnesota, who not only took 2nd place in Sunday’s Pro Champ 440 final, but placed 1st in Saturday’s final, going home with a total of $3100 over the two days, making him our top earner of the weekend.
Coming in a close 3rd in the Sunday Pro Champ 440 final was GARY MOYLE from Houghton, Michigan, last year’s reigning Canadian Champion, who also came in 3rd in Saturday’s final, enjoying a payday of $1780 over the weekend.
Other big winners include Keith Hayman out of Winnipeg, Manitoba, who took home $2800 for his 1st place finish in the Jerry Bunke Memorial Challenge, Greg Shepertycky from Rocky Mountain House, Alberta who won $855 for capturing 1st place in the Pro Formula 500 class, as well as his partner, Amy Boyd, also from Rocky, who earned bragging rights by beating the boys in the Semi Pro Formula 500 class and taking home a pay cheque of $693 for her 1st place finish.
The Motorcycle Ice Racing featured as an exhibition event this year proved to be a great success, with racers and spectators alike enjoying the tight racing action. We look forward to having them return again next year!
As always, CPTC paid out 100% of the driver registration fees to the winners in each class, and along with added-in money to the purse, paid out more than $32,000 in cash, not to mention additional prizes generously donated by our sponsors.

CPTC would like to thank all the racers who came from far and near to put on such a great show once again for all the race fans. We would also like to thank all our volunteers who so tirelessly give of themselves year after year to help put on the “Greatest Show on Snow.” CPTC would also like to give special recognition to all of our sponsors and advertisers, without whose support this race would not be possible, nor nearly as successful. Of course last, but certainly not least, a very special thank you to all the race fans for their continued loyal support of our races. We do it for you … and we certainly couldn’t do it without you!
The tentative dates for our 2015-16 Race Season are: DECEMBER 12 & 13, 2015 and MARCH 5 & 6, 2016.
SEE YOU AT THE RACES!
