Spira Racing – Post Race Update #37 October 18, 2014 Flamboro Speedway

Spira Racing – Post Race Update #37 October 18, 2014 Flamboro Speedway

Samantha, Billy and Jake arrived at Flamboro Speedway for the annual Frost Fest event that was organized and Sponsored by London Recreational as the last event of the season for the Spira/Lucas Oil Team. Scott was not in attendance as his car has been sold and although Scott will be around to help the team, he is getting more focused on his career, purchasing a new truck as well as saving for his first home, putting racing on the back burner for a bit. After the second practice session, Jake brought the #88 into the pits with the engine temperature climbing and then the upper rad hose ruptured. The crew went to work replacing the hose and diagnosing why the rad fan was not working, getting both issues resolved before the cars lined up for their time trials. The #35set the fast time early in the time trial session that would decide the top ten cars going into a dash for cash to set their starting order for the first of two 30 lap features. 37 cars in total arrived to qualify for the event and 27 cars would qualify for the 20 final positions through heat races. Billy bumped the #35 off the top of the leaderboard with his fast lap, however the #39 would bump Billy to 2nd as Samantha and Jake would go into the heat races. In the dash for cash, Billy went out front on the first lap, followed by the #35 and #39 who made their way by him to put him 3rd for the remainder of the race and the win going to the #35. Samantha and Jake were in the same heat race with Sam starting 4th, Jake 5th and Billy’s brother Rick 11th. After multiple cautions with one of them involving Jake, that sent him too the back, Samantha maintained her position throughout the race to finish 4th, Jake worked his way through the field from the back to finish 6th and Rick finished 10th. With the top 8 out of each heat race qualifying into the feature, Rick would run the last change race and finished 4th to qualify as the last place car to start in the feature. First Feature: Billy starter 3rd, Sam 16th and Jake 20th but with multiple cations arriving early, both Samantha and Jake received damage and entered the pits for repairs from the multi car pile ups that took place in the first few laps. The field finally ran some green flag laps before the #37 slid through the infield, causing heavy damage to the clean up truck
and destroying his car, bringing out the caution on lap 5. Billy remained 3rd for the restart, Samantha was 18th and Jake 20th and after Billy fell back to 5th, he worked his way by the #71 into 4th as Sam moved up to 14th and Jake to 17th as they completed ten laps. The final caution free laps would finish with Billy maintaining his 4th place position, Samantha moved her way up to finish 11th and Jake finished 13th. Second Feature: With an inversion for the 2nd feature, Jake would start 1st, Sam 3rd, Billy 10th and Rick 19th out of the remaining 28 cars. Jake and Sam fell back throughout the first ten laps and were running 14th and 12th as Billy moved his way by both his teammates into 8th. The first caution came just after the halfway mark, bringing the scattered field back together. Billy restarted 4th, Sam 9th, Jake 14th and Rick 19th. The #39 spun in front of Billy on the 17th lap that would put Billy into 2nd for a restart beside the #41. As Billy was running side by side with the #41 for the lead, trouble in the middle of the field collected Jake and he was moved to 17th under the caution as Sam ran 8th and Rick 18th. Billy took over the lead on lap 18 and was pulling away from the #41 as the caution returned with only 5 laps remaining for the #71 who spun to a stop in turn 3. Billy moved out front to complete the final 5 laps for the win as Samantha gained two positions to finish 6th, however Jake was forced to pull into the pits with 4 laps remaining as damage to the front of the car
damaged the rad fan and the car was overheating. After celebrating his 12th feature win of the season for Billy and the #86 team, all teams gathered for the final trophies and many prizes that Mike Schmidt from London Recreation had gathered from many sponsors of the event. Combining the two features for total points, Billy was awarded 2nd place overall behind the #35, Samantha had a combined total that would place her 8th, Jake 14th and Billy’s brother Rick would finish 17th. This concludes our 2014 race season, however we will keep you informed throughout the off season of team developments. We wish to take this time to thank our many sponsors, family members, friends and fans that have supported our team and drivers throughout the season as without you and your tremendous support, a successful racing program would not be possible……THANK YOU.

The weather was beautiful with packed grandstands.

There was a Competition Yellow on lap 60 of the 114 lap feature for teams to make any adjustments needed. Our car was fairly good, the boys gave me water.

Rick Walt Finishes 10th At Autumn Colors Classic

Rick Walt Finishes 10th At Autumn Colors Classic

PETERBOROUGH, Ontario - Despite having to fight his way through the field on a couple different occasions, Rick Walt would still post a top-10 finish in the Autumn Colors Classic.

Walt started off his weekend strong by winning his first heat on Friday night. He would then finish fifth in his second heat on Saturday, to qualify seventh for the 75-lap feature.

The feature wouldn’t start off as Walt wanted as pole sitter Nick Goetz would get sideways on the start, slowing up as he was unable to find traction. As a result, Walt would get into the back of Goetz on lap two, sending him for a spin. Officials would then send Walt to the rear for the restart. Restarting at the rear, Walt would immediately begin to work his way back up through the field, running 17th as of the second caution at lap seven. However, the restart would bring more problems with Walt as he’d get tangled up with Steve Foster and Jack Horner. As a result, back to the rear of the field once again.

The 2011 Autumn Colors Classic winner would once again begin to start and make his climb forward, moving up to 17th by the fifth caution flew at lap 24. He would then get another good restart and run forward, moving into 12th by the time the sixth caution flew at lap 31. Though as with the way his night had gone so far, the progress would turn out to be all for nothing as contact with Shaun McWhirter on lap 59 would result in a return to the tail end of the field.

Walt began his climb back towards the front once again, running 15th as of lap 66. The restart would come with 11 laps to go and Walt used it to his advantage, moving his way up to the 10th spot before the checkered flag flew.

Thanks to HOTC, Abstract Salon, call Mr. Handy, F1rst Financial, Rust Check, RB Graffix, FLT Independant Order of Odd Fellows, Eisses Pumping Service, Remax/ Cindy Snow, TSS Top Shops, Kitchen Tire and all the fans for their continued support all year long.

Terry Woodley Finishes 15th At Autumn Colors Classic

Terry Woodley Finishes 15th At Autumn Colors Classic

PETERBOROUGH, Ontario – Following a mid-race spin, Terry Woodley would post a 15th place finish in the Autumn Colors Classic at Peterborough Speedway.

Woodley would start off his ACC weekend on a rough note, finishing eighth in his first heat on Friday night after getting caught up behind Dave Watchorn when he spun. He would bounce back with a fifth place finish in his second heat on Saturday, to qualify 22nd for the 50 lap feature on Sunday.

Woodley would escape the early wrecks, slowly advancing himself further up the field in hopes to crack the top 10 before the competition of the event. However, he would see his solid run come to an end on lap 26 when he would go spinning coming off of turn four, virtue of contact from Charlie Smith.

Restarting in the 20th spot, Woodley would hope to gain some spots before the checkered flag was flown. He would accomplish that goal, getting by five cars before the checkered to post a solid 15th place finish.

Tyler Hawn Finishes 11th In Autumn Colors Classic At Peterborough

Tyler Hawn Finishes 11th In Autumn Colors Classic At Peterborough

PETERBOROUGH, Ontario - Tyler Hawn would survive the Autumn Colors Classic by avoiding the majority of the trouble en route to posting a solid 11th place finish to complete the 2014 OSCAAR Super Late Model season.

Hawn started off the weekend on a not-so-positive note as he’d have some contact with Shane Gowan in his first heat, resulting in him being one of the three drivers caught up in the small pile-up. With minimal damage, Hawn was able to continue, finishing fourth. He would then finish third in his second heat, setting him up for a 12th place starting spot in the feature.

The feature wouldn’t start off as Hawn hoped for, either, as he would fall back to 18th on lap three en route to trying to get through a wreck involving Craig Stevenson, Dave Doucette and Paul Harris. He would move up to the 17th spot before the caution flew for the second time on lap 17. The restart brought forth close racing, and an extremely close-call as Hawn almost got caught up in the ‘big one’ of the event. On lap 20, J.R. Fitzpatrick had his shifter break, resulting in a seven-car pile-up. Hawn would escape the turn one corner without damage, moving up to 15th.

Hawn would continue to look for ways to gain ground, though would experience some problems of his own on lap 26 when he would overshoot turn one, going off into the opening. He would get the super late slowly quickly, able to turn around and rejoin the field for the restart in the 16th spot.

Hawn would keep up his duty of avoiding trouble, escaping a wreck with four laps to go to move up to the 12th spot. He would then get by Robert Bickle on the restart to post a solid 11th place finish.

As a result of his solid season all year long, Hawn will finish the 2014 OSCAAR season in the ninth spot in points, despite missing the first two events of the season.

Special thanks to Fox’s Bakery and Deli, TSS Top Shops, Belt Conveyor Guarding, Backwoods Maple Syrup, Daly Custom Fab, WriteitOutLoud.com and Stewart Carriers Limited for their continued support.

Mike Beyore Leaves The Autumn Colours Classic With A Strong 4th Place Finish

Mike Beyore Leaves The Autumn Colours Classic With A Strong 4th Place Finish

Everyone was thinking about what could happen instead of talking about what would happen. Peterborough Speedway’s Autumn Colours Classic had the OSCAAR Super Late Models as part of the show and it was the final point paying event on this year’s tour. The season championship had pretty much been decided, but there were a number of positions that were still up for grabs throughout the field.

Even though they weren’t scheduled to qualify until the next day, the OSCAAR Super Late Models ran a couple of practice sessions Friday afternoon on the venue known as Canada’s Toughest 3rd of a Mile Paved Oval. Any concerns Mike Beyore might have had about changing track or weather conditions were quickly moved to the back burner by the confidence the second generation Whitby, Ontario veteran racer felt about his machine’s performance during the opening round.

“It was almost the best run we’ve ever had here at Peterborough,” said the usually soft spoken chauffeur. “The car was fast and worked really well through the corners. It didn’t seem to matter which line we used. The bottom, middle or top grooves were all the same. There’s another practice later in the day and we’ll try some different ideas, but this is the type of performance this team has been capable of all season long.”

During the second qualifying heat Saturday afternoon, ‘The Whitby Warrior’ took the green flag from 5th spot and wound-up finishing 2nd. Still feeling great about the weekend’s effort, the #54 ride lined-up 3rd in the 5th qualifier and again managed a 2nd place showing. With a pair of solid runner-up efforts to build on, there was time to relax and enjoy some racing with the other divisions before loading the car into the hauler for the night.

“Despite having just a pair of 8 lap heat races to work from, I think it was a great weekend,” said Beyore while visiting with friends and fans Sunday morning. “We weren’t put into a position where we needed to replace any bent or broken parts and I’m comfortable with the car’s performance. I think it’s going to be a good day.”

Even when he was sent to the back of the pack following an opening lap incident, Beyore remained positive and did his best to settle into a rhythm, while pushing his machine to its limit in an effort to get back to the front of field. On most tracks, 50 lap main events will give a driver plenty of time to plan a strategy, but the lap counter at Peterborough clicks things off in a hurry. When all was said and done, Beyore crossed the line in 4th spot. It wasn’t a checkered flag or even a podium finish, but everyone on the team was happy with the result.

“It’s easy to be sent to the rear and then get your butt handed to you on a platter on the way back through – especially at Peterborough – but our stuff was right on the mark today and we had an amazing run.”

In the pits: The #54 OSCAAR Super Late Model team finished the 2014 season 6th in the final point standings…Max Beyore managed a 2nd place effort in the OSCAAR Modified finale. He was also 2nd in the point standings and was named the division’s Rookie of the Year.

Spira Racing – Post Race Update #36 October 10-12, 2014 Peterborough Speedway

Spira Racing – Post Race Update #36 October 10-12, 2014 Peterborough Speedway

The #86 car was the only team from the Spira Racing Stable that headed to Peterborough Speedway for the three day, 21st Annual Lucas Oil, Autumn Colours Classic Event. The team arrived on Friday along with Billy’s brother Rick, who brought his #72 in an attempt to qualify for 30 starting positions out of the 47 cars that had arrived for the event. Both drivers were pretty happy with their cars as they only required minor adjustments during the two practice sessions before the one and only heat race of the day. The format would have one heat race on Friday and one on Saturday to qualify 15 cars with the top three averages in each race going into the 50 lap feature that would be held on Sunday and the final 15 positions would come from the B features held on Saturday night. Billy started 5th in his heat and he quickly moved up to 3rd, where he would finish in the short, 8 lap race. With the day complete for the crew, they enjoyed festivities at the track before heading back to their motel for the night. After a good breakfast, the team returned to the track to find that despite the car running fine when it was put away, the motor would not stay running. After three hours of trouble troubleshooting and replacing components that may have been the issue, a faulty module was final found on the distributer and the car was ready to go. With the motor issue, the #86 missed the practice sessions and would line up for the 2nd and final heat race in the 4th starting position. Billy fell back to 5th, however worked his way back up to finish 3rd and qualify for the main event. Although Rick ran a great race in the B-main, he did not qualify for the feature and he joined the crew in the infield pit area as the #86 lined up for the 50 lap feature with 30 of the best cars from
throughout the province. Billy had to slow up on the original start as the #49 in front of him was spinning his wheels as they approached the green flag and then before one lap was completed, the #53 was pushed up the track, where he climbed the wall and was hanging half on and half off the track to bring out a red flag condition. On the restart, Billy was in 12th and he moved his way up to 9th before the end of the 3rd lap. On the 4th lap, the #1 shot down in front of Billy from the outside lane and onto
pit road with his arm waving as if he was avoiding trouble up ahead. With Billy looking straight into the sun and not being able to see the green lights, he slowed for what he thought was a caution and was passed by many cars who realized that the race was still under a green flag condition. Realizing what had just happened, Billy jumped back on the gas, however the brief second event had cost him six positions and he found himself back in 15th. The caution did come out on lap 24 as the #89 hit hard into the front stretch wall, followed by another caution on the next lap for four cars that got together in the same location. Billy restarted 12th and was up to 10th on lap 28, 9th on lap 34 and 8th on lap 36. After one final caution, Billy was able to maintain his 8th place position throughout the final laps where he would finish. The driver was very disappointed with the result as he felt he should have been a top three car had he not slowed for what he thought was a caution early in the race, however the car was
in good shape, the team had a great time so they headed home happy after huddling under blankets to watch the other classes race their feature events in front of a capacity crowd.

Spira Racing – Post Race Update #35 September 28, 2014 Sunset Speedway

Spira Racing – Post Race Update #35 September 28, 2014 Sunset Speedway

Due to the huge car count for the annual Velocity event and the overflowing pit area that had trailers jammed in very tight from one end to the other, the Spira Team decided to leave their cars and trailers at the track and either got rides home with friends or borrowed a vehicle from someone that was camping at the track for the weekend. It was not long before the grandstands were filled to capacity for the popular event and after one practice session, the cars lined up for the conci and feature races. Jake lined up to start 3rd in the last chance qualifying race with 13 other cars, as Samantha and Billy readied their cars for the feature event as they qualified the previous day. Only the top 6 would move into the feature and Jake was well aware that he had to race hard, but also race clean to get into the main event. The #88 moved into 2nd place early and maintained the position to finish the same, despite many cautions and restarts throughout the 15 lap race.
In the mid afternoon sunshine, the mini-stocks lined up for their feature event with Billy starting 6th, Samantha 13th and Jake 19th out of 28 cars. Billy slid back two positions early as the #39 pushed up towards the wall where Billy was running and then after the cars sorted themselves out throughout the first ten laps, Samantha gained six positions into 7th, Billy was up to 5th as Jake advanced into 16th. The #35 and #72 maintained the pace out front as Billy moved into 4th on lap 15, Sam took over 6th two laps later and on lap 20, Jake moved into 14th in what was a very competitive field of cars. As they approached the final ten laps, Billy moved by the #6 car for 3rd as Samantha challenged the #51 for 5th, taking the position one lap later. The #35 remained out front since the start, followed by the #72 who was not far behind as they ran through lapped traffic in the caution free event, well ahead of Billy who was in 3rd. With three laps remaining, Sam passed the #6 to take over 4th behind Billy and they would finish in that order with Jake finishing 14th. The finishing order on the track would not end up being the final positions after technical inspection as the #35 who ran out front for all 35 laps was disqualified for illegal modifications to his suspension. With the disqualification of the first place car, the win was award to Jordan Howse in the #72 car who ran an awesome race for his first win as a mini-stock
driver, 2nd was given to Billy, Samantha received 3rd and Jake was moved up to finish 12th.

Rick Walt Uses Velocity 250 As Learning Experience

Rick Walt Uses Velocity 250 As Learning Experience

INNISFIL, Ontario – After throwing a twist in the midst of the weekend, the Walt Motorsports team would use the Velocity 250 weekend as a learning experience leading into 2015.

Jeff Walt would run the No. 31 Late Model on Saturday in the qualifying races, finishing third in his first heat before placing fourth in the second heat. As a result, it would set him up with a solid starting spot for the 75 lap feature on Sunday.

On Sunday, starting up front, Jeff Walt would start the event, though would climb out of the car under the first caution on lap two to give way to Rick Walt. Restarting 21st, the team was looking to gain ground and quickly.

Throughout the rest of the feature, things wouldn’t go as well as hoped as a couple issues would result in multiple trips down pit road under the first few cautions to discover the problem. Being only the team’s second trip to Sunset Speedway this year and trying out a car that had been purchased in August, the team used the race as a learning experience to discover what the car wanted from them to be stronger. As the race went on, Walt’s lap times did improve and he was running equal to the leaders, however was trapped a couple laps down in the process.

Thanks to HOTC, Abstract Salon, call Mr. Handy, F1rst Financial, Rust Check, RB Graffix, FLT Independant Order of Odd Fellows, Eisses Pumping Service, Remax/ Cindy Snow, TSS Top Shops, Kitchen Tire and all the fans for their continued support

Woodley started off the weekend well, winning both of his qualifying heats to qualify second for the 50 lap feature. Starting in second, Woodley would slip back to third near the beginning, but from there held his own. He stayed in the third spot, weaving in and out of lap traffic while keeping his position.

In the late stages of the event, he would be passed by a couple of cars, bumping him back to the sixth spot. He would cross the line in sixth, but was credited with a fifth place finish after the race winner was DQ’ed.

Thanks to Lock Keys and Rekeys – Collingwood, Great Lakes Trophies – Collingwood, Collingwood Automotive Repair Services, Curries Creative Painting – Duntroon and Complete Welding – Thornburry for their support.
