Comments Off on Summer Update

Hi all, I just wanted to give everyone an update on our summer.  We have been very busy once again taking the cars to various venues in and around Edmonton.  The season started off with the Police and Fire challenge in Las Vegas back in April where we lined up against 14 different teams.  Of course we were the only team representing Canada and I’m proud to say I was runner up.  We took down 3 cars and both the Challenger and Mustang ran personal best times of 9.80 and 11.85 respectively.   Sgt. Scott Graham from LA County Sheriff’s organized a great event and had lots of prizes for all to take home.  This is a great opportunity to evaluate our program with the other teams and compare notes.  One area of improvement we recognize is standardizing our racing apparel and image.  We want to thank Profox Race Gear and Mobil 1 oil for teaming up with us and providing new SFI race suits.  These will be ready for 2015 season.

Once we returned back to Edmonton, we began a hectic schedule of community and school displays for May and June.  In the beginning of July, our home track Castrol Raceway held the IHRA Nitro Jam series.  The IHRA staff are a great group and allow us each year to participate in their exhibition feature during the 3 day race.  In total, we had 6 police race cars, including Scott Graham who drove up from Los Angeles.   The crowd loved the show and we appreciated all the hospitality and media coverage.

The rest of the month saw us at more community events and charity car shows.  The K-Days parade was cool this year as we were with all the Edmonton Police Service vehicles starting with their 57 Chev panel delivery (former bomb truck) then progress through the years with different patrol cars ending with our futuristic race cars. (sorry photos of the parade haven’t been sent to me yet)

To date, we have attended over 35 events and still have many bookings right up until the end of September.  Our next appearance is Hot August Night which will be this Wednesday, August 13, in front of 15,000 race fans.  We will feature all 4 of our cars and again put on a good exhibition show.

I have attached a few photos from this year, but also check out our Facebook page at Blue Line Racing Association as I update the site more regularly.

Hope you’re having a great summer and thank you for your continued support.
