More than a thousand people packed the Stacy Krahn Memorial Motorsports Park in Wembley on Father’s day weekend to remember a friend. With more than 95 entries into the 2nd annual Stacy Krahn Memorial Mud Bog, Organizer Myron Krahn says this was another record breaking weekend for them.
“Last year this time we set a record for entries and attendance and i’m pretty sure we matched it if not bettered it from last year. It was a really good turn out, great weather…couldn’t have asked for a better weekend for this.”
The event is hosted by Peace Country Offroad Racing Association, a group Myron and his wife Stacy helped found. The mother of two was killed on November 22nd, 2017 after she was hit by a drunk driver on 116 Street in Grande Prairie. Following her death, the group dedicated their June mud bog to her.
This was the second event without his wife by his side and Myron says even though it’s hard, it’s a great way to honour an amazing person.
“We still have heavy hearts over it [and] we still have our moments but this is our family, these are our people, they may not be related to us but they’re our brothers and sisters so this is our family reunion.”
The event took place at the Stacy Krahn Memorial Motorsports Park which was also dedicated to Stacy back in 2018.
