The Bathurst High School Phantoms Racing Team competed at the New Brunswick High School Challenge this past weekend. Drivers Dakota Card (car) and Shelby Scott (truck) put in some impressive runs down the track. Dakota ran 5 successful rounds and Shelby 6 rounds before both were eliminated for driving a little too fast. Dakota did come home with the plaque for being closest to the dial-in time posted on the car. It should also be noted that Jordan Coombs made his inaugural trip down the track posting a time and speed as fast as anyone else.
