The competitors of the St. Labre 200 kicked off the weekend with go-kart making on Friday.  

Twenty-four teams are going head-to-head in a 200-lap race with the go-karts they are crafting in 24 hours at St. Labre.  

Joel Grenier is not only the president of the event, but he is also a competitor. 

“We started with nothing this morning. Everyone's got their kits. It's amazing what's all going on here. We're having a super good time. The weather's been cooperating,” Grenier says.

Saturday, July 8, is the main event day, as that is when the races take place, along with many other activities, including bouncers, an excavator rodeo, a kids’ zone and a variety of food options.  

He adds proceeds from the weekend, “It's all going for charity.”  

“We've raised over $130,000, this is our 14th year, we just want to keep giving back,” he explains. “So, thank you to all our generous sponsors. It's been a fun ride.” 

Don’t forget, Wendy’s Show Us Your Summer is now on, and we’ve added a twist to the trailer game. When you win a golden ticket, you have a decision to make: Taylor or Trailer?  

We are sending a lucky winner and their friend to Los Angeles to see Taylor Swift on the Eras Tour! This includes free flights, accommodations and tickets—everything you need to make your wildest dreams come true. 

When you choose Taylor, you give up your golden ticket for the trailer to be entered into the Taylor draw happening July 26. Don’t worry, the trailer isn’t going away. 

Want more chances to win? Show us you and your favourite summer sport for a chance to win two rounds of 18-hole golf at Buffalo Point Resort. We are giving away two of these prizes!
