Kitimat's own Kevin Enmark kept the King of the Hill title right here in Kitimat.

Kitmat’s Kevin Enmark was crowned King of the Hill winner at the Dave Saunders Memorial Hill Climb during Kitimat Canada Day celebrations.

Enmark aboard his Yamaha V-max 4 cylinder 750cc snowmobile was too quick on the day, winning all five of his races including the King of the Hill final against the Leavitt Machinery Truck in a blistering 5.6 seconds.

Enmark competed in the very first King of the Hill race a few years back but this was his first time winning the event. He made a triumphant return to racing after taking the past few years off.

“I just got back into racing this year; I do the Terrace races, I go to Houston and once in a while I’ll hit Prince George if it works out for me,” says Enmark.

The local machine operator has been racing on and off for 12 years but is strictly a snowmobile racer.

“I just race my snowmobile against whoever races against me,” added Enmark.

He captured the Bikes and Sleds category as well, taking top spot ahead of his brother Shawn Enmark who took runner up honours.

For the King of the Hill they take the winners from each class and then race them off until a winner is crowned.

“When we race for King of the Hill we race everybody; cars, trucks, motorcycles, bikes, railcars, whichever is racing that day,” explains Enmark.

Enmark plans to be back next year to defend his title and keep the King of the Hill trophy in Kitimat.
