ELORA — Local media celebs swapped headlines for driving lines on Friday night in Grand River Raceway’s third annual Media Race.
Each media personality was paired with a professional driver in a custom two-person jog cart for the half-mile exhibition race.
Award-winning equine photographer Dave Landry was the victor alongside pro driver Bruce Richardson. The pair piloted 16-year-old Killean Sweep in the half-mile dash.
Darryl Law of The Morning Buzz on 107.5 DAVE ROCKS was a half-length back with top Grand River Raceway driver Bob McClure and Little Miss Sporty. Morning show host Lisa Richards of Magic 106.1 FM was close behind with Brad Forward and Callie Magoo. Last year’s champ, Barry Finn, the editor at The Rider newspaper rounded out the field with Robert Shepherd and Calamar.
Law captured an entertaining POV Facebook Live video of the entire race and winners circle which can be viewed here.
