Qualicum Beach racers burning up the speedway

Six races into the season and the Saratoga kids — brother and sister race car drivers Kevin and Jenn Lawrenuk — are bringing home so many trophies, mom Laurie jokes she’s “gonna have to buy them some Swifter dusters.”

Kevin and Jenn Lawrenuk are piling up the points at Saratoga Speedway in Courtenay.

Six races into the season and the Saratoga kids — brother and sister race car drivers Kevin and Jenn Lawrenuk — are bringing home so many trophies, mom Laurie jokes she’s “gonna have to buy them some Swifter dusters.”

Doing great and having a blast in their third season at Saratoga Speedway.

Kevin, 15, currently holds the No. 1 position out of a field of 46 cars in the Hornet class A division.

Jenn, 19, who started the season in the B (for slower cars) class, but moved up as her times improved, is currently sitting 12th in the A.

This is Kevin’s fourth year of racing up at Saratoga; Jen’s third. The siblings race for the Coast Auto Service Racing Team out of Qualicum Beach.

Jenn’s new pink 1999 Honda Civic SIR is turning in her fastest times ever — her best time to date is a 19.0 and Kev’s is 18.2.
