2012 Comes To A Close With The Eve Of Destruction At Humberstone

2012 Comes To A Close With The Eve Of Destruction At Humberstone

Port Colborne,ON by Les Mawson (humberstonepr@yahoo.ca) - With the running of the JC Auto Eve Of Destruction, with special thanks to Chris Johnson, the highly successful and sellout crowd was highly entertained and eventful 2012 racing season comes to a close and racers and race fans alike are now chomping at the bit, waiting for the 2013 racing season to get here!

After 75 crash-filled laps,the winner of the Enduro race was Ohsweken competitor Karl Sault with two J C Auto Street Stock regulars Steve “Smokey” Robison second and Dave Bitner Jr third. Former Ohsweken technical inspector Glenn Hils was the leader for a good part of the early going but dropped out with engine problems.

The ladies race was next with track general manager Bob Davidson’s sister Crystal Davidson picking up the win and second spot going to Sarah Rutherford.Third spot went to Emily Puchalski, getting the best finish of the Armstrong family. Not too sure where Carrie wound up, just not last!

Next up was the flagpole race and after twelve laps, it was another of the Hils brothers picking up the win, namely Chris Hils. Scoring for this race was somewhat confused, so at this point, all I know is the winner.

The Backwards race was next and once again, the early leader was Glenn Hils, but yet again, he had problems and had to retire from the race, leaving the victory to Peter Polchak.

A new event for 2012 was a 2 car chain race which was quite interesting with a big field of very diversified entries varying from Jason Coutu’s Jeep and his old mini stock to two Chevy Astro vans tied together. Once again, the Hils Brothers entry with Glenn driving and Karl Sault in the towed car showed they did their homework and won this race as well.

The long jump was next and finally someone else had a chance to take it as the Hils’ stayed out of this one! With a combined jump of over one hundred feet, it was Erick Muise the winner with Guy Deschamps second and Shawn Willen third.

The always wild and wooly trailer race was next with all manner of trailers ranging from a full size house trailer to a little plastic wagon with pit steward Louie Caetano in it(no he didn’t stay in it for the whole race!) with also the usual boat trailers. On the first lap, one of the boats fell off(like it was supposed to) right in front of everybody on the front stretch and at the end,one of the drivers in the back of the pack Coutu, ran it over to the enjoyment of the crowd! Again, the winner was Glenn Hils, adding to his overall point score.

The next event up was the small car demolition derby with a good size field of about 15 cars and after all the crashing and banging, it was Chris Hils the winner in this one.

The second to last event of the day was the large car demolition with an even bigger field than the small one,with vans and trucks in it! One of the trucks wound up getting stuck between cars and then another driver drove his car backwards right over the top of the box of the truck, much to the amusement of all in attendance! The winner after all was said and done was Teddy Sheppard!

So with all that, the overall winner was Glenn Hils of the Hils Brothers team and with that, the 2012 season is now over, put to bed, and we hope to see each and every one of you race fans next year!

Up next for Humberstone Speedway will be the Post Season Banquet at the Beautiful Americana Resort, Spa and Water Park in Niagara Falls on Lundy’s Lane. This will be held on November 10th with more information to follow. Visit http://www.humberstonespeedway.com when more information is made available.

You’ll find The New Humberstone Speedway  2 miles East of of Port Colborne on Highway 3, just 17 miles west of the Buffalo / Fort Erie border at the Peace Bridge.

McPherson Wins Humberstone DIRTcar Sportsman Tour Race

McPherson Wins Humberstone DIRTcar Sportsman Tour Race

Port Colborne,ON by Les Mawson(humberstonepr@yahoo.ca)

The weather all weekend may have been damp and dreary but for Tyler McPherson, it was all sunshine as between Friday night at Ransomville, Saturday night at Merrittville and here at the New Humberstone Speedway for the special DIRTcar Fall Tour race, he went three for three and took home all the money!
In the 50 lap Trever Wilkens Memorial 50 lap COSCO HAULAGE  Mr DIRT-CAR Sportsman Tour event, time trials set up the qualifying heats and a redraw, there were two invaders on the front row namely, from St.Robert, PQ Martin Pelletier and from Cayuga, NY Dave Marcuccilli and on the drop of the green flags from John Veach, Marcuccilli moved out to the early lead coming out of turn two. His progress would be immedaitely slowed by a yellow flag for a big collision in turns one and two involving Greg Panunte, Jesse Cotriss, Justin Sharp and Brandon Easey. All were able to continue. It would take four tries to get some sort of rythum where there wasn’t any “stop and go” and Marcuccilli would still be in the lead but pressure from Pelletier and then Tyler McPherson, I’m guessing, wore him down and on lap 39, he bobbled just a little bit and that was all that McPherson needed to get by and he wound up leading the last ten laps to pick up the three-peat for the weekend.  Pelletieralso slipped by Marcuccilli for second with Marcuccilli hanging on for third. Fourth was Greg Panunte with Gary Lindberg fifth. Heat winners were Adam Leslie, Pelletier, James Michael Friesen and Mathieu Desjardins with the two consi’s going to Corey Wheeler and Mark Chiddy.

 

PETERS EXCAVATING FASTRAK Late Models: With the points already decided last week, most of the drivers decided to take this week off,so there was only a 5 lap”Dash for Dash” that was won by Kenny Winfield with Luke Carleton second and Tim Gillespie third. Rob Ledingham subbing for Paul Milligan was fourth with Bill Gill fifth. The lone heat winner was Gillespie.

 

J C AUTO Street Stocks: Humberstone Speedway held Round 3 of their Top Of The Rock Street Stock Series, 30 Street Stocks attempted to qualify for the 24 car field. With the other tracks in the area being dark tonight,there was a full field of cars for tonight’s feature. With the “heads-up start’ in the 25 lap main for tonight, the first heat winner, Jason Fontaine was on the pole with the second heat winner, Cory Turner beside him. On the start, Fontaine got out to the early lead and held it for the first two laps, surrendering it to Turner just before the first caution flag for a jingle between Steve Robison and Sean Letts. During this caution period, Fontaine would retire to the pits and not return. Turner would lead the next eight laps before bowing to the pressure that Kevin Knapp was putting on him for those eight laps. Dave Small, subbing for Bryce Richardson, was making a spirited charge through the field, bringing Kenny Sargent along with him, getting up to the back of Turner just before the last caution came out for another spin by Robison. This would be all that Knapp needed to hold off Turner for the win.Small would finish third with Sargent fourth and Paul Reichel fifth. Heat winners were Fontaine, C. Turner, Jordan Fidler and Reichel with the consi going to Ryan Turner. Earlier this season, Ken sargent won rounds 1 and 2 of the series.

 

NIAGARA AUTO SALES Pro 4 Trucks: Starting on the front row was Hilary Haegens with Taylor Vanderzanden along side of her. On the drop of the green, it was Haegens getting the jump on the field, setting off about the best race of the year for the class. Adam Nicholls moved past Vanderzanden after a good side by side battle and then Vanderzanden had his hands full holding off Mike Toovey and Lee Sleight. Nicholls would almost get by Haegens on various occasions but could not get by her. At the finish, it was Haregens getting her fourth win of 2012, Nicholls was second with Vanderzanden third. Fourth was Toovey and fifth was Sleight. Heat winners were Haegens and Vanderzanden.

 

WEEKEND MOTORSPORTS Mini Stocks: Starting on the pole was supposed to be Greg Wilson but he was having problems with his #33 so Brandon Iudiciani moved up to the first starting spot with Tyler Lafantaisie on the outside. On the start, Lafantaisie took the early lead with Iudiciani right on his tail. Lafantaisie would lead the first seven laps, surviving the first two cautions, the first for Rob Overholt and Nate Monahan, the second one coming on the restart with Steve Vanderzanden spinning in turn two right in front of everybody with Overholt and Monahan piling into him along with Evan Curtis. Just after the restart for this, Iudiciani would get by Lafantaisie bringing Chris Laskey and Aaron Wiley with him and hold them off for the rest of the run. On lap eleven, Wilson’s night would go from bad to worse as he lost the right front tire. This bunched up the field and set up an exciting finish with Lafantaisie, Kyle Pelrine and Ron Loggie running three-wide on the last lap for the fourth spot with Lafantaisie getting it. Iudiciani picked up just his second win of 2012 with Laskey second and Wiley third. Lafantaisie was fourth with Pelrine fifth. Heat winners were Iudiciani and Curtis.

 

FRONTIER AUTO DISMANTLERS Pure Stocks: Starting on the front row was Sam Iftody with points leader Kyle Rothwell along side. On the start, Iftody grabbed the early lead and never headed after that. Leroy Buscumb was running third until he had some issues with his #71 and had to go pitside. Even a last lap yellow flag for a spin by Billy Smith couldn’t deter Iftody from picking up his fifth win of 2012. Rothwell was second with Kyle Tomaski third. Fourth was Brad Booker with Olivier Larocque fifth. The lone heat winner was Buscumb.

 

An Eve Of Destruction Enduro Qualifier of 30 laps was held but was shortened after a nasty rollover by Leroy Buscumb who was shaken up. This brought a halt to the Enduro after 15 laps and the winner was: Chris Somos followed by Kenny Sargent and Jason Coutu.
Just one more night of regular racing left in the 2012 season with the EVE OF DESTRUCTION on Friday September 23with a starting time of 7:15! Next Friday night is the final points night for the Frontier Auto Dismantler Pure Stocks, Weekend Motorsports Mini Stocks, Niagara Auto Sales Pro 4 Trucks and the J.C.

McPherson, Peters Crowned Points Champions At Humberstone

McPherson, Peters Crowned Points Champions At Humberstone

Port Colborne,ON by Les Mawson(humberstonepr@yahoo.ca)

On another fine night for motor-car racing, two points champions were crowned with the other four divisions having another two weeks to determine their champs. As hard as it is to think that there’s only a couple of nights left in the 2012 racing season as it seems like it was just last week that it started, there has been plenty of good clean competition this summer with more yet to come!

COSCO HAULAGE DIRTcar Sportsman:

Coming into tonight’s racing, Cody McPherson had a slim four point lead over Greg Panunte meaning that Panunte would have to finish at least three spots ahead of McPherson to take the championship. With Championship points on the line, starting on the front row was Jeff Armstrong with Dave Flannigan,Jr. beside him and coming out of turn two with the early lead was Armstrong, but his progress was immediately slowed by a yellow flag for a triple spin by Gary Lindberg, Paul Jorgenson and substituting for Joey Mastroianni, veteran Doug Fralick. Another two laps later after the restart, Armstrong’s progress was slowed again for rookie Travis Miller backing the Miller Motorsports #22 into the front stretch wall, breaking off the right front wheel in the process, ending his night early. This put a pair of Port Colborne drivers on the front row, Armstrong and Adam Leslie with a pair of Americans right behind them, Mark Chiddy and Adam Hilton. On the green, Leslie took the lead away from Armstrong down the backstretch, but at the line, it was Chiddy with the lead that he would not relinquish. Leslie tried to wrestle the lead away from Chiddy but to no avail. Meanwhile, back in the pack, McPherson and his cousin, B J Willard were making a charge up through the field while Panunte was having a hard go trying to make any headway. At the finish,it was Chiddy with his second win of 2012 with Leslie second and McPherson third. Fourth was Willard with Brad Rouse fifth. With the finish the way it was, McPherson is the 2012 points champion over Panunte by eighteen points. Heat winners were Flannigan, Willard and Armstrong.

PETERS EXCAVATING FASTRAK Late Models:

Championship points were also in order Peters Excavating Late Models and coming into tonight, the points battle in this division was the closest of all six with Adam Ferri a slim two points over Jorden Peters with Darren Peters sixteen points after that, making it anybody’s championship to win. Starting on the initial front row was Kenny Winfield with Dean Ferri along side but before anybody could get any advantage coming down the backstretch, Winfield spun in front of the pack, with Tim Gillespie winding up on the hood of the #82 with Darren Peters and Adam Ferri wedged in behind them. This meant a complete restart with all the cars involved in the wreck moving to the rear of the field putting Jorden Peters on the front row with Dean Ferri. On the start, with a bonzai move going through turns one and two, it was the veteran Ed Carley grabbing the early lead, but just as quickly, the yellow came out again on the next lap for a collision between A. Ferri and Bill Gill with Scott Spiece, subbing for Don Spiece, spinning to avoid contact. With another three caution periods after the first two, Jorden Peters was able to grab the lead away from Carley on lap three and hold off all challengers, including his father who wound up bringing out the last caution period on lap 8 with a spin, to pick up his second win of 2012 and also the first championship of his career. Carley would hang on to finish second with Darren coming back from the spin to finish third. Fourth was Adam Ferri with Luke Carleton, in his first start of 2012 was fifth.  Heat winners were D. Peters and Carley.

J C AUTO Street Stocks:

Starting on the front row was Tyler Anderson with Jordan Fidler along side him and on the green flag it was Anderson outracing Fidler into turn one to grab the early lead. It would be a short-lived lead as Paul Reichel would motor on by Anderson on the next lap and then hold off all challengers to record his fifth win of 2012. With Reichel holding an commanding lead for most of the race, all the action was behind him with Jason Fontaine,who was looking for his fourth straight win tonight, Kevin Knapp, Shawn Wilson and Anderson having a fierce battle for the second spot, waiting for Reichel to make some kind of mistake.In the later going, Knapp and Fontaine did manage to break away from Anderson and Wilson and gain some ground on Reichel and on lap eighteen, Reichel bobbled just enough to allow the other two Camaros to get close, but at the stripe, it was Reichel picking up the win with Knapp second and Fontaine third. Fourth was Anderson with Wilson fifth. Heat winners were Wilson and Reichel.

NIAGARA AUTO SALES Pro 4 trucks:

Starting on the front row was about the most diverse pair of drivers in the class,the rookie Jamie Ayers with 36 year veteran Andy Imbeault along side of her.On the start, Hilary Haegens’ race ended before it had a chance to start as the engine made a huge bang and she rolled to a stop off of turn one. I’m not sure what happened going into turn two but Ayers spun in front of the pack collecting Adam Williams, Colton Ledingham and Adam Nicholls with Nicholls done for the night. This put Greg Haegens up beside Imbeault and Haegens wasted no time in taking the lead away from the”Flyin’ Frenchman”and settled into the lead. With all the action on the first lap, Mike Toovey moved up from where he was supposed to start,ninth, to the third spot and on the eighth lap grabbed the lead away from Haegens. Haegens and Lee Sleight were then engaged in a tight battle for the second spot with Imbeault and all was going good for Haegens until the unlucky thirteenth lap.Haegens came up to the lapped truck of Ayers and they came together with both of them spinning, bringing out the last caution of the race, setting up for a two lap “dash for cash”. Sleight tried to get around Toovey, but to no avail with Toovey picking up his fourth win of 2012. Sleight would settle for second with Imbeault third, Craig Vlasic fourth and Danny Wurster fifth. Heat winners were Williams and Hilary Haegens.

WEEKEND MOTORSPORTS Mini Stocks:

Starting on the front row was rookie Tyler Lafantaisie with one of my “wedding chapel” cars, Garnet Wilson, along side of him. To further explain, if you didn’t know, this writer was married last week at Merrittville Speedway and we had one car from each division there to make like a “wedding chapel” and Wilson was the representative from the Mini Stocks. On the green, it was Wilson taking the early lead coming out of turn two and he would go on to take his first win of 2012. It wasn’t as easy as all that though as he had to fight off a determined Rob Overholt in the latter part of the race. Behind those two, Lafantaisie was having a good battle with fellow rookie Steve Vanderzanden and Evan Curtis. At the finish it was Wilson for the win, Overholt was second with Vanderzanden third. Fourth was Lafantaisie with Curtis fifth. Heat winners were Aaron Wiley and Vanderzanden.

FRONTIER AUTO DISMANTLERS Pure Stocks:

Starting up front on the pole was Brad Alward with Mike Greene on the outside and on the drop of the green flag, it was Greene taking the lead going into turn one.he would hold the lead for the first four laps until he was passed by Leroy Buscumb. Buscumb would hold the lead for the next five laps until he had a flat tire on the right rear. He headed to the pits, giving the lead back to Greene for the next two laps, when Greene bobbled and Brad Booker was right there to take advantage, grabbing the point, surviving the only caution of the race on lap thirteen and taking his third win of 2012. Greene would hang on to second and Kyle Rothwell was third. Fourth was Olivier Larocque and fifth was Sam Iftody. Heat winners were Greene and Kyle Tomaski.

Next week, there won’t be any racing on our regular Friday night, but there will be racing on Sunday at 7:15 with the Trevor Wilkens Memorial DIRTcar Sportsman Fall Tour race, a New Humberstone Speedway Weekly series AND the last 30 lap EVE OF DESTRUCTION qualifier!

Farraway’s Win Is Far, Far & Away At Humberstone Speedway

Farraway’s Win Is Far, Far & Away At Humberstone Speedway

Port Colborne,ON by Les Mawson(humberstonepr@yahoo.ca)with help from Fran Bushardt.

A gorgeous night greeted the  New Humberstone Speedway and its fans on CAA night and management would like to thank Bill Willard,Jr.and the rest of the CAA crew for all their help in the past year.

COSCO HAULAGE DIRTcar Sportsman: In the 25 lap Main with Joey Mastroianni and Jeff Armstrong leading the field to the green, Mastroianni would take the top spot in the very early going but Hamilton’s Darrell Farraway would make the move to the front from his 4th starting spot. Farraway who’s had an up and down season could not get any higher this night would build a very healthy lead, only to see it close for the races only caution early in the feature. When the race resumed Farraway would stretch the lead to a full half lap over Mastroianni and masterfully work lap traffic on his way to his first ever feature win. With very heavy traffic the normal highpoint pilots struggled to make their way thru the field. Rounding out the top 5 behind Farraway were Mastroianni, BJ Willard, Gary Lindberg and and Gregg Rauscher who failed post race tech.  Heat winners were Jeff Armstrong,Darrell Farraway and Matt Sharpe.

PETERS EXCAVATING FASTRAK Late Models: Kenny Winfield and Dean Ferri would set the pace in the 20 lap main with “Windy” gaining the early lead and off to a fine start for several laps with Adam Ferri moving up quickly from his 5th starting spot. Ferri’s lead would not be very solid as the points battle with the Son and Father team of Jorden and Darren Peters would not allow Ferri a big lead as the Peters were tied for the point lead and Ferri just 2 points back. So the heated battle up front continued for the full 20 lap main with Ferri gaining his 3rd win of the season followed bu Jorden Peters, Ed Carley, Darren Peters, and Paul Grigsby aboard a new ride. Heat winners were Dean Ferri and Darren Peters.

J C AUTO Street Stocks:In the 20 lap feature with Barry Blanchard and Tyler Anderson up front, with both exchanging the lead in the early going allowing point leader Jason Fontaine to move up rapidly. Also leading briefly in the race was Steve Robison having a fine run this evening. But Fontaine, from his 7th starting s[pot would move up and become a factor and would gain the lead. In a pre race conversation with Fontaine ” We have never won 3 in a row before and would help us out alot.” Well, 3 in a row it was for Fontaine who would stretch his healthy point lead  as he enthusiastically exited his car in victory lane. Next in line were Paul Reichel, Robison, Blanchard and Terry Ronning.  Heat winners were Barry Blanchard and Paul Reichel. The race was halted for Tim Zack who’s cars erupted in flames but he escaped uninjured.

NIAGARA AUTO SALES Pro 4 trucks:(15 laps)
Starting in the front row were a pair of youngsters,third generation driver Colton Ledingham and second generation driver Jamie Ayers. On the drop of the green, it was Ayers grabbing the early lead coming out of turn two and was having the run of her young career, running in the top five for a very good portion of the race. She was passed on the second lap by Danny Wurster who was one of the just two drivers in the top ten without a feature win until tonight. Wurster held the lead all race, with only a slight challenge from Ledingham as the youngster could only get within a couple lengths of the leader. Even a late caution for a spin by Ayers on lap eleven could not phase Wurster as he went on to record his first win of 2012 and add his name to the growing number of winners for the season. Second was Ledingham with third going to Greg Haegens. Fourth was current point leader Mike Toovey with fifth going to Hilary Haegens. Heat winners were Wurster and Adam Williams.

WEEKEND MOTORSPORTS Mini Stocks:(15 laps)

Starting on the front row,in comparison to the truck race was a pair of “grizzled veterans”,Garnet Wilson with Evan Curtis on the outside. On the drop of the green, it was Curtis taking the early lead coming out of turn two and holding it for the first three laps. Next it was Wilson’s turn out front and he held the lead for the next three laps, until lap seven. Lap eight, it was Curtis back out front, retaking the lead after a caution for a spin in turn one by Nate Monahan. Next it was Kyle Pelrine’s turn to lead the way which he did all the rest of the run, taking his third win of 2012. Curtis held on for second with Steve Vanderzanden third. Fourth was Brandon Iudiciani while Wilson hung in for fifth. Heat winners were Aaron Wiley, with an unexpected visit, and Iudiciani.

FRONTIER AUTO DISMANTLERS Pure Stocks:(15 laps)

Starting on the pole was Billy Smith with Sam Iftody along side. As what could have been expected, it was the veteran Iftody out racing Smith into the first corner and then hanging on the rest of the way for his fourth win of 2012.”Hanging on” was the proper analogy for Iftody’s run as for most of the race, he had Leroy Buscumb right on his tail. Buscumb actually passed Iftody for the lead a couple times but just as he either did or got close, the yellow flag came out and saved Iftody. At the finish,it was Iftody picking up his fourth win of the season with Buscumb second and Kyle Rothwell third. Fourth was Kyle Tomaski with Mike Greene fifth. Heat winners were Iftody and Greene.

Rick St Pierre would pull of the win in the 15 lap Vintage Car event over Mark Shadwell, Doug Fralick, Darrell Bray and Gord Edwards.

Josh Sliter Wins In Mod-Lite Return To Humberstone Speedway

Josh Sliter Wins In Mod-Lite Return To Humberstone Speedway

MOD LITES RETURN TO HUMBERSTONE! SLITER JOINS LINDBERG IN VICTORY LANE
Port Colborne,ON by Les Mawson(humberstonepr@yahoo.ca)

For most of the day, it appeared that mother Nature was finally going to win one over the New Humberstone Speedway, but as has been the case most of the year, she struck out once again! We had six repeat winners and one driver finally got the monkey off his back and broke through with a big win.

COSCO HAULAGE DIRTcar Sportsman:
Starting on the front row was a pair of young guns, Joey Mastroianni with Matt Sharpe along side and on the drop of the green flag from substitute starter Bobby Davidson, Sharpe grabbed the early lead coming out of turn two and held it for the first lap until the first caution of the night for a spin by Mark Chiddy. On the restart, Adam Hilton wrestled the lead away from Sharpe and held it for the next few laps, surviving two cautions, the first for Greg Panunte and the second for Mastroianni and Chris Bellamy, with Mastroianni winding up stuck on top of the wall on the inside of turn four. After careful work by the CAA crew, Mastroianni was able to continue. On the restart for this incident, there was a big collision in turns one and two involving Dave Flannigan Jr, Paul Jorgenson, Ray Hockridge and Darrell Farraway with Flannigan getting the worse of the deal, cutting his night short .On this restart,”The High Plains Drifter”, Gary Lindberg was along side of Hilton and out raced him into turn one. Hilton then went high into turns three and four, almost going off the racing surface and lost many spots in the process. The next caution was for Jorgenson again, breaking down in turn two. This put B J Willard right beside Lindberg and the two drivers put on a whale of a battle for many laps until Willard unexpectedly spun all by himself in turn two, bringing out caution flag number six. On the restart,there was a huge multi-car collision in turn one involving Robert Baker, Bellamy, Ron MacAulay, Willard, Derek Smith and Mark Chiddy. Even with that many cars, all were able to continue. This set up an exciting five lap run for the money between Lindberg and Cody McPherson with Lindberg running his preferred high line and McPherson running it as well, presumably to stay close enough to Lindberg to pass him on the low side near the end, but that strategy didn’t work as Lindberg was not to be denied and took home his second win of 2012.McPherson took second over a fast closing Brad Rouse. Recovering from his early spin was Panunte for fourth with Adam Leslie fifth. Heat winners were Lindberg, Rouse and Chiddy.
TUSA CANADIAN REGIONAL-MR. DIRT MODIFIED LITE TOUR:
This was the second visit of the Mod Lites to the speedway in 2012 and starting on the front row was Jason Corliss with Jeff May along side and on the drop of the green flag, it was Josh Sliter scooting through for the early lead coming down the back stretch, bringing his Merrittville “arch-rival” Derek Wagner along with him. This set up a fierce battle between these two, a common scenario at Merrittville, with Sliter leading the way and surviving two cautions, the first for Ryan Grady, in the usual ride for Paul Klager and Derek Moore. The second, on lap seven, was for a spin in turn one by the eleven year old grandson of track owner Pete Cosco, Dylan Davidson, making his first ever start in his Mod Lite. This bunched Sliter and Wagner back together as Sliter had opened up a Little distance between the two. Wagner grabbed the lead away from Sliter for laps ten and eleven with Sliter taking it back on lap twelve. On lap thirteen, Randy Hollingshead spun in turn one, bringing out caution number three. With Wagner just getting out in front of Sliter coming out of turn four, they came together just slightly with Wagner spinning and just nudging the front stretch wall. This put Wagner on the tail and Sliter was put to second, making Jason Corliss the new leader on the restart. Corliss led the next two laps until Sliter got around him on lap fifteen. On lap sixteen, Corliss spun bringing out the last caution of the race. This put Klager, in his red Brian’s Tire machine, right behind Sliter for the restart. Sliter was not to be denied tonight though and easily took the win. Klager was second with May coming in third. Wagner clawed his way back up to fourth with Hollingshead scored fifth. Heat winners were Wagner and Corliss.
PETERS EXCAVATING FASTRAK Late Models:
Starting on the front row yet again was the pair of veterans, Kenny Winfield and Don Spiece. On the drop of the green, Winfield grabbed the early lead coming out of turn two and hold it for the first two laps. Spiece would take his kick at the can, leading the next three laps, surviving the only caution for a spin by Paul Milligan in turn one. This put Darren “the Digger” Peters along side Spiece on the restart and he would take the lead on lap seven. This writer is not sure what, if anything was wrong with Peters’ ride,but uncharacteristically after he got the lead, stretching it out a bit in the first few laps he had it, he then proceeded to drop back a bit. Adam Ferri was able to catch and then pass him on lap eleven but the big shocker was that his son Jorden was also able to get by and those two stretched out their lead over Darren. At the finish, it was Adam Ferri the winner Jorden Peters was second with Darren third. Hanging in for  fourth was Spiece and fifth was Dean Ferri. Heat winners were Adam Ferri and Jorden Peters.
J C AUTO Street Stocks:
Starting on the front row was Jordan Fidler, celebrating his birthday tonight, with veteran Barry Blanchard beside him. On the start, Fidler would take the early lead coming out of turn two and hold it for the first four laps, looking like he was going to take his first feature win but Jason Fontaine came into the picture and ruined the party. The first of two cautions was for a spin by Tyler Anderson and this put Fontaine right beside Fidler on the restart. Fidler held off Fontaine for about two laps, but “the Fonz” was not to be denied, taking the lead on lap five. Fidler would get another chance at the lead when the caution came out for a double spin involving Anderson and Kenny Sargent. Fontaine would hold off the youngster on the restart and lead the rest of the way, taking his third win of 2012, his second in the last two weeks. Fidler was second, his best finish of 2012, with Anderson coming back for third. Sargent was fourth with Paul Reichel fifth. Heat winners were Fontaine and Reichel.

 

 

NIAGARA AUTO SALES Pro 4 Trucks:
Starting out front was Adam Williams with Danny Wurster on the outside. Taking the early lead going into turn one was Wurster and holding it for the first two laps. He ran a little high in turn two on lap three and was then “freight-trained” by Adam Nicholls, Greg Haegens and Mike Toovey. The only caution period of the race was for a minor collision between Hilary Haegens and Craig Vlasic on lap five. This gave Greg Haegens about the only chance to take the lead away from Nicholls, but Nicholls was on a roll tonight and wound up taking his third win of 2012.Greg Haegens was second with Toovey third. Fourth was Lee Sleight with Taylor Vanderzanden fifth. Heat winners were Nicholls and Wurster.

 

 

WEEKEND MOTORSPORTS Mini Stocks:
Starting on the front row was Greg Wilson with Rob Overheat along side him. On the original start, Wilson got loose in front of the entire pack in turn two, causing a major collision involving almost half the field. The drivers involved included both Greg and his father Garnet Wilson, Chris Laskey, Jason Coutu and Evan Curtis and everybody went pitside and didn’t return. This put Nate Monahan up on the front row along side of Overholt and on the start, wasted no time in taking the lead. Monahan would go on to lead the entire run but all the action was behind him with Overholt having battles with Kyle Pelrine and Jay Pietz as well as Brandon Iudiciani. The only other caution in the race was for the rear bumper cover off of Overholt’s Mustang on lap eleven. As with the leaders in the other divisions, Monahan was on a roll and would go on to take the win, his fourth of 2012. Second was Overheat with Iudiciani third. Fourth was Pietz with Steve Vanderzanden was fifth. Heat winners were Overholt and Greg Wilson.
FRONTIER AUTO DISMANTLERS Pure Stocks:
Starting on the front row was Sam Iftody with former class champion Mike Greene along side. On the start, Iftody would take the early lead coming out of turn two and then hold it for the first eleven laps, surviving two cautions and a red flag for a flip by Jackie Giancola in turn three on lap nine. This writer missed Giancola’s flip, along with most of the people in attendance as every body’s attention was focused on the leaders and Jackie was at the tail end of the field almost a full lap behind. She  was also the cause of the second caution, so the two incidents may have been connected to each other. The last caution was for a spin by Billy Smith in turn one. On this restart, Iftody faded back a bit and was passed by Kyle Tomaski, Kyle Rothwell and Greene. This set up the latest version of the “Kyle and Kyle show” with Tomaski in front of Rothwell for the last exciting three laps. Rothwell tried his best to get around Tomaski but Tomaski was not to be denied and took home his first win of 2012 and also his career. Rothwell was second with Greene third. Fourth was Iftody with newcomer Marcel Beauregard fifth. Heat winners were Leroy Buscumb who had tire issues in the feature and Iftody.

Next week is presented by CAA Niagara along with FOAR SCORE Fan Club with a New Humberstone Speedway Weekly Series plus the Vintage cars AND School Bus rides!

As other tracks in the area had called their shows earlier in the day, the New Humberstone Speedway was lucky and got the show in without nary a rain drop! And many thanks to Jeff Armstrong of Tidyman Maintenence and Julie Puchalski of Port Colborne Laundry for sponsoring tonight’s races.

COSCO HAULAGE DIRTcar Sportsmen: Starting on the pole was the rookie Chris Bellamy with tonight’s sponsor Jeff Armstrong along side of him and on the drop of the green flags from starter John Veach, Armstrong grabbed the early lead in turn two and held it for the first two laps until the first caution came out for B J Willard and Adam Hilton who got hooked together coming out of turn two. This put “The High Plains Drifter” Gary Lindberg right beside Armstrong on the restart and he wasted no time in getting around Armstrong and taking the point for the next five laps, but lurking in the shadows was Greg Panunte and after another two cautions, was beside Lindberg for the lap eight restart. Panunte outraced Lindberg going into turn one on lap nine and then proceeded to hold off all comers, surviving another two caution periods, including the last one on lap twenty for a wreck involving Dave Flannigan Jr and Gregg Rauscher. This ended Rauscher’s night and set up a five lap “dash for cash”. Panunte was not to be denied, though and held the point to the end taking his fourth win of 2012. Lindberg was second with Brad Rouse charging through the field to come in third. Fourth was Cody Macpherson and fifth was Austin Wood. Heat winners were Lindberg, Wood and Joey Mastroianni.

PETERS EXCAVATING FASTRAK Late Models: On the front row was the veteran Kenny Winfield sharing it with Tim Gillespie and on the start, it was Gillespie taking the early lead and holding it for the first six laps until the first caution flag for a spin by Adam Ferri. Unfortunately for Gillespie, that put Darren”the Digger” Peters along side him on the restart and after two tries to get the race back underway, Peters was able to use the low side to his advantage to get around Gillespie to take the lead and ultimately his seventh win. Coming back through the pack to finish second was Ferri with Jorden Peters third. Holding onto fourth was Gillespie with Zack Carley fifth. Heat winners were Don Speice and Ferri.

J C AUTO Street Stocks: With Ohsweken Speedway rained out, a few of their regulars decided to come out and play with us for a change. Starting on the pole was Port Colborne’s own Dave Bitner Jr. with Stevensville’s Jordan Fidler along side of him. On the start, Bitner, who’s been showing a lot of speed the past few weeks, was able to grab the point coming out of turn two and held it for the first six laps until a spin by Fidler slowed the field. This put Jason Fontaine beside Bitner for the restart and on the green, “the Fonz” wasted no time in getting around Bitner for the lead. Fontaine then had to hold off a very determined Kevin Knapp, who also got around Bitner. Knapp tried just about everything shy of the famous bump and run to get around Fontaine but Fontaine was not to be deined and took his second win of 2012. A little bit of excitement on lap eleven when coming out of turn two, Chris Duchesne had a fire under the hood of the 22MX. He was able to coast into the infield and have the CAA crew put the fire out without bringing out the caution. The top five were Fontaine, Knapp Bitner, Shawn Wilson and Steve Robison. Heat winners were Bitner and Wilson.

NIAGARA AUTO SALES Pro 4 Trucks: Starting on the front row was a pair of third generation drivers, Colton Ledingham and Taylor Vanderzanden and on the drop of the green it was Vanderzanden with the early lead as Ledingham didn’t come up to speed right away. Vanderzanden only had the point for the first lap as Lee Sleight was able to get around Ledingham and then pass Vanderzanden in turn four. Sleight was then able to hold off all comers to take his third win of 2012, survivng the only caution of the run, when Adam Williams spun in turn four and with nowhere to go, Andy Imbeault gently ran into the front of him. Vanderzanden held onto second over Mike Toovey with Adam Nicholls fourth and Greg Haegens fifth. Heat winners were Sleight and Ledingham.

WEEKEND MOTORSPORTS Mini Stocks: Starting on the front row was Greg Wilson with former Sprint car racer Jason Pietz along side of him. On the drop of the green flags, it was Pietz taking the lead coming out of turn two, a lead that he would not relinquish, holding off all comers. Evan Curtis and Aaron Wiley were having their own battle behind the leader and since neither of them could get past the other, Pietz was able to drive on to his first win of 2012. It was a very happy Victory Lane afterwards with car owner Rob Overholt almost as happy as Pietz was. The top five were Pietz, Curtis, Wiley, Brandon Iudiciani and Kyle Pelrine. Heat winners were Pietz and Curtis.

FRONTIER AUTO DISMANTLERS Pure Stocks: Starting on the front row was Kyle Tomaski and former points champion Mike Greene and on the start,Tomaski took the early lead for the first lap until Brad”the Hammer” Booker took it from him on lap two. Tomaski would return the favour three laps later on lap six and hold it for the next five laps. Kyle Rothwell joined the fray on lap nine and it was the “Kyle and Kyle Show” for the next five laps. Rothwell took the lead on lap twelve from Tomaski and the two Kyles had a good battle until the last lap when Tomaski went too high in turns one and two, losing about six spots. This put Sam Iftody in second but not for long as he spun in turn four! In the space of a lap, Booker went from fourth to second without having to work for it! At the finish it was Rothwell picking up his third win of 2012, also solidifying his point lead, Booker was second, Mason Smith was third. Fourth was Jackie Giancola with Billy Smith coming back from losing a wheel to finish fifth. Billy Smith was lucky when he lost his right rear wheel as just as it happened, Brad Alward, whose engine was smoking heavily for two laps prior, had an engine fire bringing out a caution.That allowed Smith to get his wheel changed without losing a lap. Heat winners were Tomaski and Iftody.

EVE OF DESTRUCTION Enduro Qualifier was won by Justin Desmarais after thirty laps.The top five were Desmarais, Justin Mathes, Jimmie Richard, Tim Notley and Brad McCarten.

Next week, Boltworks Industrial Fasteners and the Kacey Lynn Fund present a New Humberstone Weekly Series show along with the second leg of the TUSA Canadian regionals- Mr.Dirt Modified lite Series tour!

Steele, Ferri, Panunte Headline Humberstone All Canadians

Steele, Ferri, Panunte Headline Humberstone All Canadians

Port Colborne,ON by Les Mawson(humberstonepr@yahoo.ca) – The largest crowd of the year showed up to watch yet another edition of the “All Canadian”, a special race conceived by John Puhl, the original owner of the speedway. Mother Nature tried to steal the show early in the day, throwing rain at the speedway in the morning, but, undaunted, the management and staff worked tirelessly to bring the racing surface back to peak condition and would like to thank all the fans that waited patiently for the show. One hundred and thirty seven cars were signed in the pits,making this show the biggest of 2012 so far.

DIRTcar 358 modifieds: Starting on the pole for the big 50 lap run was Chris Steele with the veteran Rob Pietz along side and on the drop of the green flags from starter John Veach, it was Steele with the early lead coming out of turn two. He would hold the lead for the first six laps until Chad Brachmann charged around him coming up to the start-finish line for lap seven.Brachmann would hold the lead for the next ten laps until he would be involved in a grinding crash in turns three and four. This crash involved Brachmann, Kenny Winfield, Mike Bowman, Paul Ashton, Tommy Flannigan, Travis Braun, Erick Rudolph and Fred Carleton with Carleton and Rudolph done for the night and seemingly so was Brachmann, but quick work by the Mighty Taco crew got him back in the race. This put Steele back in control of the race that he would not relinquish but it wasn’t as easy as it sounds as Chad Chevalier was trying his best to be the first Port Colborne driver to win the modified division portion of the All Canadian in a very long time. At the finish, it was Steele picking up the win, Chevalier was second and Bowman recovered from the wreck to finish third. Tim Jones was fourth and Brachmann came back to finish fifth.

COSCO HAULAGE DIRTcar Sportsman:
Starting on the pole for the big race was Rob Knapp with “the High Plains Drifter” Gary Lindberg along side of him and on the start, Knapp would be the early leader coming off of turn two but it would be Lindberg leading lap one. Lindberg would open up a sizable lead until lap 18 when he found out that if you live by running the high side, you can get bit by it as well, as he and Mark Chiddy ran over the front end of Darrell Ebersole, who was facing the wrong way on the top of turns one and two (just Like Brachmann in the Modified race!)Pat Sonnenberg and Robert Baker also ran into Ebersole,ending everybodies’ night.With Lindberg out, this put Greg Panunte in the lead with B J Willard and Brad Rouse right behind him, setting up a race long battle with these three. Despite hard challenges from Willard, Panunte was able to garner the win and take home the big money. Willard was second and Rouse was third. Fourth was Cody Mcpherson with older brother Tyler fifth. Consi winners were Adam Leslie and Darrell Farraway.

PETERS EXCAVATING FASTRAK Late Models: On the pole was the veteran Don Spiece with Doug Ricotta along side and on the drop of the green, Ricotta shot out to the early lead that he would hang onto for the first seven laps until Adam Ferri flew by him on lap eight. Ferri would then hang on for the win, surviving the lone caution for a spin by Kenny Winfield on lap 17. Winfield was able to resume the race with no damage. At the finish, it was Ferri holding off Ricotta for the win with Paul Grigsby third. Fourth was Jordan Peters with his father Darren fifth. With all Victory Lane celebrations held off until the end of the night, it was an emotional celebration for track promoter and team owner Pete Cosco as both of his cars were in there . (Steele and Ferri)

J C AUTO Street Stocks:This race almost turned out to be an enduro race as less than half of the cars entered finished with nine caution periods and most of those had more than one car involved. It started out innocently enough with Kevin Knapp setting the fast time and starting on the pole with Mark Fawcett along side of him. On the start, Knapp would grab the early lead which turned out to be the only lead change of the race. Fawcett’s night started out bad as he spun on lap two along with Bryce Richardson bringing out caution number one.caution number two would be for Kameron Kocarik slowing in turn four, the easiest one of the night. Caution number three would be for a big wreck in turns three and four involving Billy Hogue, Jason Fontaine, Barry Blanchard, Kenny Sargent and Paul Reichel. Sargent’s night was over with a broken rear axle. Just after the restart for this one, Ohsweken regular Ryan Dinning would spin in front of the pack in the middle of turn four sending sheet metal all over the place. Dinning probably should have packed it in with that wreck as seven laps later, he was involved in the next caution along with Shawn Wilson and Rick Book. Dinning was done with both a broken axle and front suspension damage on the right side, requiring him to be cradled off the track by the expert CAA crew. All the while when the carnage was going on, Knapp was having a good battle with the young gun James Thompson who was keeping Knapp honest and not letting him get too far out in front of everybody. Five laps after the Dinning incident, Blanchard and Fontaine got into another wreck along with Bob McNamara who was losing body panels left, right and center. Fontaine was in his old car tonight as his Camaro had engine problems in his consolation race. A few laps after that, Tyler Anderson, who was having a good run up to this point staying in the top five, spun in turn four, whacking the inside wall and ending his night. At this point, the decision was made to count caution flag laps, even though there was only one caution after that for Jordan Fidler’s spin. At the finish it was Knapp picking up the hard fought win over Thompson, who was making things interesting by trying to make a low groove in turns one and two out of the inner Jersey barrier, Billy Bleich,Jr in the Devin Habiuk Camaro was third with Reichel recovering to finish fourth and Fontaine in fifth. Consi winners were Hogue and Sargent.

NIAGARA AUTO Sales Pro 4 Trucks:Starting on the pole was defending points champion Greg Haegens with Adam Nicholls along side of him and on the start, Nicholls grabbed the early lead with Haegens right behind him. For the first while it was Nicholls and Haegens battling for the top spot closely followed by Lee Sleight, Mike Toovey and Hilary Haegens.Luckily for Toovey, the current point leader, tonight is “show-up” points only as he would drop out early in the race. Just as Greg Haegens was ready to make a move on Nicholls, he would get caught up with Jamie Ayers on the back stretch on lap 16 and bring out the sole caution of the race. This put Sleight right on the tailgate of Nicholls and Sleight would make the best of the opportunity, passing Nicholls and holding on for the win. Nicholls was second with Hilary Haegens third. Fourth was Taylor Vanderzanden and fifth was Andy Imbeault.

WEEKEND MOTORSPORTS Mini Stocks: We had some invaders come in from the Brighton Speedway with some cars that we normally don’t see, Honda Civics, which added a little spice to the class. On the pole was Brandon Iudiciani with one of the invaders on the outside, Jeff Humphrey. On the drop of the green, Humphrey shot out to the lead, leaving iudiciani in his wake. Back in the pack though, on the original start, Nate Monahan got sideways in turn one, with Rob Overholt and Chris Sheppard running into him and bringing out the first caution. On the restart, it was still Humphrey in the lead with Iudiciani behind him, but back in the pack, the guys that Humphrey brought with him were moving towards the front. Seven laps into the run, Overholt’s night got worse as he was spun going down the back stretch by Justin Ramsay, who apparently took offense to some rubbing that Overholt gave him on the front stretch, taking Overholt out in a PIT maneuver that the OPP would be proud of! Overholt was able to continue, however, his teammate, Jay Pietz, was having engine problems and was stalled on the front stretch. He was pushed back to the pits and came back on, many laps later. A little later in the run,the next caution would come out for a jingle in turn four involving Garnet Wilson who lost his right rear wheel and ending his night. Just one more caution would slow Humphrey’s run, that for Ron Loggie losing his right rear, and Humphrey would win in his first trip to the speedway. His team mate, Matt Hatley would get second over Kyle Pelrine with a late charge for third. Fourth was Iudiciani with fifth going to another invader, Mike Taylor.

FRONTIER AUTO DISMANTLERS Pure Stocks:Starting on the pole was the veteran Brad “the Hammer” Booker with Mason Smith along side of him. On the drop of the green, Booker grabbed the early lead, surviving the only caution for a spin by Sam Iftody in turn four. On the restart, Booker would hold off the charges of what turned out to be the”Kyle and Kyle show”, that being Tomaski and Rothwell. For the whole run, it was Tomaski and Rothwell fighting over who was going to pass Booker with no clear cut victor in that battle, allowing Booker to hang on for the apparent win. Booker was later disqualified in post race technical inspection, losing whatever points and money earned for the night, but keeping the win for handicapping purposes later in the year.Tomaski was second with Rothwell third.Iftody would come back from his spin to finish fourth with Oliver Larocque fifth.

Don’t forget, next week ,Tidyman Maintenence and Port Colborne Laundry present a New Humberstone Weekly Series AND the second “Eve of Destruction” Enduro Qualifier!

New Humberstone Speedway Bests Mother Nature Once Again

New Humberstone Speedway Bests Mother Nature Once Again

Port Colborne, ON – by Les Mawson(humberstonepr@yahoo.ca)

With other tracks in the surrounding area having to cancel due to rain, Mother Nature looked kindly on us and let us race! With the rain and expert track preparation, the racing surface was the best it’s been all season!

COSCO HULAGE DIRTcar Sportsman: Starting on the front row was the rookie Travis Miller with Gregg Rauscher along side of him and on the drop of the green flags from starter John Veach, Miller grabbed the early lead coming off of turn two and then held it for the first five laps with another youngster, Matt Sharpe, right behind him. On lap six,sharpe was able to get around Miller and take his turn on the point for three laps until the first caution flag came out for a spin by Chris Bellamy in turn one. This was not what Sharpe wanted to see as it put Cody Mcpherson beside him on the restart. On the first crack, Sharpe was able to hold off Mcpherson but a slowing Gary Lindberg in turn four brought out caution number two before the lap was completed. On this restart, Mcpherson had a better jump along with Adam Leslie, who was in third, and coming across the start-finish line, it was three wide across the stripe! Mcpherson was the better of the three and then was able to hold off all comers to the finish, surviving another caution on lap 13 and one on lap 22 for a scary looking crash involving Nick Cupolo, out for the first time this year, Darrell Farraway and Robert Baker. All were able to continue after quick pitstops. At the finish it was Mcpherson picking up his third win of 2012, Leslie was second and Greg Panunte was third. Fourth was Mark Chiddy with Brad Rouse fifth. Heat winners were Mcpherson, Lindberg and Panunte.

PETERS EXCAVATING FASTRAK Late Models: On the pole once again was the veteran Kenny Winfield with Zack Carley along side and on the green flag, it was Winfield with the early lead coming out of turn two, but it was Carley with the lead coming across the start-finish line to complete lap one. The first yellow flag flew just after that for collisions all over the speedway as we had Bill Gill and Paul Milligan coming together on the front stretch and Adam Ferri and Darren Peters together in turn one. Only Milligan was unable to continue. On the restart, coming through turn four on lap 2, Carley got out of shape and spun in front of the entire field, collecting his father, Ed Carley, Peters, Adam Ferri and, making his return to racing after many years away from the speedway, Dean Ferri. Ed Carley and Dean Ferri were unable to continue, with Adam Ferri having to make a long pitstop to repair his car. After a lengthy clean-up, the race resumed only to have another yellow for a meeting with the inside wall by Tim Gillespie in turn one. Gillespie was able to continue and that was the last caution of the race. Darren Peters was able to take the lead from his son Jorden on the restart for Gillespie and was not headed after that. At the finish, it was Darren picking up his sixth win of 2012, Zack Carley came back to finish second and extending his points lead with third place was Jorden Peters. Fourth was Paul Grigsby and Gillespie was fifth. Heat winners were Ed Carley and Gillespie.

J C AUTO Street Stocks: Starting on the pole was Jordan Fidler with the veteran Barry Blanchard along side and it was Fidler grabbing the early lead coming off of turn two and then holding it for the first two laps. On lap two, Paul Reichel was able to make his way around Blanchard and take the lead on lap three. Meanwhile, back in the pack, making only his third appearance of 2012 and his second in a borrowed car, Billy Bleich Jr was making a run to the front in Kenny Sargent’s usual ride, picking off cars at the rate of one a lap. Bleich was finally able to take the lead from Reichel on lap 17 and hold it the rest of the way. At the finish,it was the orange 25 in victory lane for the fourth time this year but with Bleich at the controls, Reichel held on for second and Jason Fontaine was third. Fourth was Chris Duchesne and Blanchard was fifth. Heat winners were Fidler and Fontaine.

NIAGARA AUTO SALES Pro 4 Trucks
On the pole was third generation driver Taylor Vanderzanden with  Danny Wurster on the outside and on the green, Wurster would grab the early lead and hold it for the first five laps until the first yellow flag for a stopped Colton Ledingham in turn two. On the restart, Greg Haegens would take the lead and hold off all comers for the rest of the run. There would be another caution on lap 10 for Vanderzanden who had a flat tire on the backstretch, setting up a battle between Haegens and Lee Sleight for the last five laps with Sleight only getting as close as Haegens’ driver’s side door. At the finish, it was Haegens getting his second win of 2012, Sleight was second with Mike Toovey third, extending his points lead. Fourth was Hilary Haegens with Adam Nicholls fifth. Heat winners were Greg Haegens and Vanderzanden.

WEEKEND MOTORSPORTS Mini Stocks
Starting on the pole was Jay Pietz with Greg Wilson on the outside and on the drop of the green flags, Pietz grabbed the early lead and held it for the first four laps. Pietz was being chased by Kyle Pelrine and on lap five, Pelrine would take the lead.Leading the first four laps would be the high-light of Pietz’s run as he and his team mate Rob Overholt would come together in turn two on lap 10, sending Overholt to the pits  and Pietz to the tail of the field. There was no caution for this however as Overholt was able to get off the track right away. There was a caution soon after that though for Ron Loggie on lap 12 as he had front suspension problems as he exited turn two. This set up a three lap “dash for cash” between Pelrine and Brandon Iudiciani, who had been lurking behind Pelrine all race long, but Pelrine was able to hold him off and take his second win of 2012 and also extend his large points lead. Iudiciani was second with Garnet Wilson third. Fourth was Jocelyne Wiley and fifth was Nate Monahan.

FRONTIER AUTO DISMANTLERS Pure Stocks
Starting on the pole was Brad Alward with Billy Smith on the outside and on the green, Smith was able to grab the early lead and hold it for the first three laps. Working his way up the field was Kyle Rothwell and he took the lead on lap four. The only caution period in the run was for Rothwell, as he had a leak in a transmission line and it spilled onto his exhaust pipe, causing a mild fire under the car. He was stopped on the backstretch by the exit of the pits, the fire was put out and he was allowed to have his spot back. After that, it was clean and green the rest of the way and the only challenge for Rothwell was  from Leroy Buscumb and Sam Iftody. Iftody pulled off the track on the last lap with engine problems as he was running slower and slower each lap after the caution and Buscomb didn’t have anything for Rothwell, so Rothwell picked up his third win of 2012, also extending his points lead over Buscumb. Buscumb held on for second with Jackie Giancola third. Fourth was Alward with Smith in fifth. Heat winners were Buscumb and Iftody.

Topless Night A Huge Hit At Humberstone Speedway

Topless Night A Huge Hit At Humberstone Speedway

Port Colborne,ON
by Les Mawson(humberstonepr@yahoo.ca):

A near capacity crowd showed up for “Topless Night” at the New Humberstone Speedway. It was  presented by Peters Excavating and they were rewarded with the most competitive racing of the summer. There were two new winners for 2012 and the repeat victors had not seen Victory Lane in quite some time.

ONTARIO TOPLESS SPRINTS: 20 laps; Competitors came as near as Port Colborne and as far away as West Virginia and Ohio to race tonight at the speedway. Starting on the front row were a couple of the long haul drivers from Ontario, namely John Watson from St. Thomas and the true definition of the “grizzled veteran”, “the “Joyceville Jet”, Rick Wilson. On the drop of the green flags, it was Wilson with the early lead coming out of turn two with Watson right behind him. These two had a dog fight for the lead for the first half of the race until Wilson spun, bringing out a caution flag. Prior to the Wilson spin, there were two other spins, the first one by Stan Zanchin and the other by former Pro 4 Truck racer Scott Sherk. On the restart for Wilson, the longest hauler of the night, Mark Casella from Weirton, West Virginia, took over the lead and then hold off all challengers for the rest of the run, surviving another two yellow flag periods. At the finish it was Casella for the win, Watson was second and the ageless Dick Mahoney third. Recovering nicely for fourth was Wilson, beating out his daughter April Wilson who wound up fifth. Heat winners were Mike Galadja from Fenton, Michigan and Watson.

In the COSCO HAULAGE DIRTcar Sportsman 25 lap feature, Starting on the front row was the youngster Travis Miller with veteran Greg Rauscher along side him. On the start, Miller took the early lead and held it for the first lap, surviving the first caution for a crash between Matt Sharpe and Larry Czinege Jr. On the first restart, Dave Flannigan Jr. wrestled the lead away from Miller and he held it for the next ten laps, holding off a very determined Brad Rouse and surviving two yellow flags for spins by Mark Chiddy, who was not having a good night. On lap 11 restart, Gary Lindberg, who was running in the top five at the time, suddenly slowed going through turns one and two, bringing out caution number four. On this restart Rouse took the lead and held it the rest of the way, surviving a double last lap caution for first off, a crash between Chiddy, Rauscher and Austin Wood. On this restart, the back of the pack tried to get going before the front of the field, which led to a lot of bumper banging and Jeff Armstrong stalled in the middle of the back stretch. The last restart was also exciting as Cody Mcpherson, who was running in the top five, had his left rear tire going flat and didn’t want to lose too many spots changing it, slid all the way back to the twelfth position. At the finish, it was Rouse picking up his second win of 2012, Flannigan was second and B J Willard third. Fourth was Greg Panunte and fifth was Adam Hilton. Heat winners were Lindberg, Sharpe and Flannigan.

For the PETERS EXCAVATING FASTRAK Late Models 20 lap event, Starting on the pole was Don Spiece with Paul Milligan on the outside and on the drop of the green, Spiece took the early lead and held it for the first two laps, which was enough time for a very hungry Darren Peters to dispose of the cars ahead of him and then take the lead away from Spiece.With Peters running off with the lead, all the action was for the top five with Tim Gillespie, Adam Ferri and Ed Carley all battling for the second spot along with invader Paul Grigsby,here for the first time in 2012. Near the finish, Gillespie would drop out of the race with unspecified problems, leaving Ferri,Carley and Grigsby to battle with with Spiece. A last lap yellow for a spin by Jorden Peters did nothing to change up the order and so it was D. Peters for the win, his first in almost a month, second was Spiece with Ferri in third. Fourth was Carley and Grigsby was fifth. Heat winners were Grigsby and D. Peters.

J C AUTO Street Stocks had their 20 lap main, and starting on the pole after all his problems from last week was Barry Blanchard with Jordan Fidler along side and on the start, it was Blanchard taking the early lead and holding it for the first three laps. Moving smartly from his eighth starting spot was Kenny Sargent, taking over the lead on the fourth lap. With no yellow flags to bunch up the field, Sargent had an easy time picking up his third win in as many visits here in 2012. All the action was for the other top spots with Blanchard, Paul Reichel, Chris Crawford, Jason Fontaine and Chris Duchesne battling with Steve Robison. Duchesne would drop out of the fight with a flat right rear tire while Fontaine would also fall back with a flat left front tire. At the finish it was Sargent picking up his third straight win of 2012 with Reichel second and Crawford third. Fourth was Robison and fifth was Blanchard. Heat winners were Reichel and Duchesne.

WEEKEND MOTORSPORTS Mini Stocks:15 laps; On the front row it was Jay Pietz with Greg Wilson along side and on the drop of the green, Pietz would grab the early lead and hold it for the first two laps. Following Pietz was the rookie Steve Vanderzanden in the Dave Small Mustang and he took over the point on lap three. Once again, with no yellows to bunch up the field, Vanderzanden was having a fairly easy time holding off his competitors but not as much with his racer, as it was showing tire smoke coming off of the right rear every time he would get on the gas pedal. Also with no yellows, all the action was for spots in the top five with Brandon Iudiciani, Kyle Pelrine,Nate Monahan and Jocelyne Wiley running door handle to door handle for laps eight through eleven until Wiley had problems and went pitside. At the finish, it Was Vanderzanden picking up his first win of his career with Iudiciani second and Pelrine third. Fourth was Monahan and fifth was Tyler Lafantasie. It was a very proud grandfather Harry Vanderzanden,who was inducted onto to Merrittville Speedway’s Wall of Fame last week, standing beside Steve in Victory Lane. Heat winners were Pietz and Pelrine.

NIAGARA AUTO SALES Pro 4 Trucks:15 laps; Starting on the pole was Hilary Haegens with rookie Colton Ledingham beside her and on the drop of the green, Haegens wasted no time taking the top spot. Yet once again, there were no cautions in this run and again, it left all the excitement to be behind the leader. It was Lee Sleight, Mike Toovey, Adam Nicholls and “the Flyin’ Frenchman” Andy Imbeault all duking it out for the second spot and after 15 laps, it was Haegens picking up her third win of 2012, second was Toovey and third was Sleight. Fourth was Nicholls and fifth was Imbeault. Heat winners were Haegens and Imbeault.

FRONTIER AUTO DISMANTLERS Pure Stocks:15 laps; On the pole was Brad Alward with Mike Greene outside of him. On the drop of the green, Greene grabbed the early lead and held it for the first three laps. Battling his way up from his third row starting spot, Brad”the Hammer” Booker took over the lead on lap four and was never headed after that. All the action was behind Booker with Oliver Larocque and Kyle Tomaski having a good battle along with Kyle Rothwell and Leroy Buscumb. At the finish, it was Booker taking home his first win of 2012 and his first win in the class, Larocque was second and Tomaski was third, fourth was Rothwell and fifth was Buscumb.Heat winners were Greene and Booker.

Next week is Super Mario’s Pizza night with a regular exciting full card of racing along with a Kids’ Poster contest and School Bus rides! So kids, make a poster of your favorite driver!

Willard & Fontaine Pick Up First Wins Of 2012 At Humberstone

Willard & Fontaine Pick Up First Wins Of 2012 At Humberstone

Port Colborne,ON
by Les Mawson(humberstonepr@yahoo.ca)

Friday the thirteenth madness presented by the Seaway Mall proved lucky for six drivers and unlucky for some on the thirteenth show of the 2012 season!

In the 25 lap COSCO HAULAGE DIRTcar Sportman..Starting on the front row was Jeff Armstrong with Dave Flannigan,Jr. alongside of him. On the drop of the green flag from starter John Veach, Armstrong had the early lead coming out of turn two but it was Flannigan with the point coming across the start-finish line to lead lap one. Flannigan would then lead the next twelve laps, withstanding charges first from Adam Leslie and then B J Willard. On lap thirteen,Willard would get around Flannigan and Leslie and then lead the rest of the way. With no cautions to bunch up the field, Willard would have an easy time picking up his first win of 2012. That’s not to say there wasn’t any action anywhere else though as Gary Lindberg and Greg Panunte moved up smartly from their seventh and ninth starting spots respectively, getting around Flannigan and Leslie. At the finish, it was Willard getting the win in practically a new car for him, replacing the one that was wrecked last Saturday at Merrittville, with Lindberg second and Panunte third. Hanging on for fourth was Flannigan with Leslie in fifth. Heat winners were Armstrong, Leslie and Willard.

PETERS EXCAVATING FASTRAK Late Models completed their 20 lap main with starting on the front row was Paul Milligan with Don Spiece along side of him and on the start, it was Milligan with the early lead coming out of turn two. He would lead the first four laps, surviving cautions for spins by Bill Gill and Kenny Winfield and then the big crash on lap four involving Spiece, Zack Carley and the father and son team of Darren and Jorden Peters. Both D. Peters and Z.Carley were done for the night as both cars had to cradled off to the pits. After the lengthy delay clearing the track and on the restart, the wily veteran Ed Carley would take the lead from Milligan and then run away with it, getting out to a healthy margin by the end of the race. With no other cautions to bunch things back together, Adam Ferri and Tim Gillespie didn’t have a chance to get close to Carley and that is how they finished. At the checkered flag, it was Carley the winner, his second in two weeks, Ferri was second and Gillespie was third. Hanging on to fourth was Milligan and salvaging at least something out of his bad night was Jorden Peters. Heat winners were Milligan and D. Peters.

In the 20 lap J C AUTO Street Stocks, With a vastly improved car count for the Street Stocks tonight, we had Barry Blanchard on the pole with Shawn Wilson along side of him. On the start, Blanchard grabbed the early lead and held it for the first two laps. Jason Fontaine moved up smartly from his fourth starting spot to take the point on lap two,bringing Billy Hogue and Chris Duchesne along with him.The first caution of the race was for Blanchard who broke the left rear axle of his Camaro and took a wild spin on the front stretch,doing a double loop and facing the wrong way going into turn one.On the restart,it was a wild battle between Fontaine, Hogue and Duchesne for many laps until lap fourteen when Hogue tapped the back bumper of Fontaine, which had been loosened up in the Blanchard incident somehow, and sent it flying off the car with it landing against the front stretch wall. The yellow flag flew to allow the CAA tow crew to pick up the bumper and get it out of harm’s way. On the restart, it was still Fontaine leading with Hogue ,Duchesne and Paul Reichel right behind. Reichel would have some problems soon after that though and drop off the pace. The yellow flew again on lap 16 for a spin by Tyler Anderson but on this restart, there was a collision on turn four between Jordan Fidler and Dave Bitner,Jr. which also collected Reichel and Steve Robison to some extent. Everybody was able to continue but not really competitive, with Reichel actually retiring to the pits soon after. On the restart, it was still Fontaine in the lead with Hogue glued to where his rear bumper should have been and Duchesne right behind Hogue and the last four laps did nothing to change the running order. Fontaine picked up his first win of 2012 with Hogue second and Duchesne third. Fourth was Wilson with Bob MacNamara fifth. Heat winners were Duchesne, Reichel and Fidler.

NIAGARA AUTO SALES Pro 4 Trucks 15 lap feature :Starting on the front row was Danny Wurster with Hilary Haegens along side. On the drop of the green, Wurster would grab the early lead and then hang on to it for the first nine laps. On lap nine, the only caution for the run would come out for rookie Taylor Vanderzanden and veteran Andy Imbeault who were hooked together coming out of turn two and couldn’t come apart. This restart set up a race long battle between Wurster and Adam Nicholls with the two of them swapping the lead back and forth every different lap. Nicholls would finally take the lead for good on lap 12 and hang on for his second win of 2012. Wurster held on for second with Mike Toovey holding off Lee Sleight for third. Sleight held on to fourth and Greg Haegens coming in fifth. Heat winners were Hilary Haegens and Sleight.

In the 15 lap WEEKEND MOTORSPORTS Mini Stocks: Starting on the front row was Jocelyne Wiley with Rob Overholt along side her. On the drop of the green, Overholt grabbed the early lead bringing Brandon Iudiciani with him. This set up a race long battle between the two brightly painted Mustangs with Overholt leading and Iudiciani no more than a car length behind him. A few times Iudiciani would get his front bumper by Overholt’s rear wheel but no closer and with no contact. The only yellow flag in the run was for a collision between Kyle Pelrine and Nate Monahan in turn four on lap 10. Monahan got loose in turn four and Pelrine had nowhere to go to miss him and they collided. Both were able to continue but with the yellow being so late in the race,neither of them were in contention any longer. At the end, it was Overholt the winner, picking up his second win of 2012, with Iudiciani second and Garnet Wilson third. Fourth was Wiley with fifth going to Tyler Lafantasie. Heat winners were Wiley and Overholt.

In their 15 lap main for the FRONTIER AUTO DISMANTLERS Pure Stocks, Starting on the front row was Brad Alward with Kyle Tomaski along side and on the drop of the green it was Tomaski taking the early lead for the first two laps. Then Sam Iftody charged up from his fourth starting spot and grabbed the lead away from Tomaski and then held it to the end of the run. At the finish, it was Iftody for the win, Tomaski was second and Leroy Buscumb was third. Fourth was Oliver Larocque with Mike Greene fifth. After post-race techinical inspection, both Iftody and Buscumb were found illegal and penalized both their points and money earned for the night. Heat winners were Billy Smith and Brad Booker.

Next week is Topless Night presented by Peters Excavating with the non-wing Sprint cars and the Cosco haulage DIRTcar Sportsman and the Peters Excavating FASTRAK Late models going topless!

Hilton, Carley & Duchesne First Time Winners At Humberstone

Hilton, Carley & Duchesne First Time Winners At Humberstone

Port Colborne,ON by Les Mawson(humberstonepr@yahoo.ca)

Dilts Piston Hydraulics night,the weather was hot and so was the action on the track at the New Humberstone Speedway! Victory Lane had three first time winners with one of them picking up their first career win!

Cosco Haulage DIRTcar Sportsman: Starting on the pole was the rookie Joey Mastroianni with Jeff Armstrong right along side and on the drop of the green, Mastroianni was able to get the early lead coming out of turn two and then hold it for the first four laps, with pressure from Adam Hilton the whole time. Hilton was able to get around Mastroianni on lap five, bringing the other rookie, Austin Wood, along with him. Soon after that, Darrell Farraway jumped into the mix, passing Mastroianni and taking off after Hilton and Wood. On lap ten, the first yellow flag of the race came out for a spin by Greg Panunte and on the restart, Farraway was able to get around Wood for second and then get by Hilton for the lead, On the next lap, Hilton was able to get back around Farraway and soon after, Wood was also able to get around Farraway. Hilton survived another caution on lap 13 for a slowing Gary Lindberg and also a late charge from Wood. At the finish, it was Hilton for the win, his first of 2012. Wood was second and Farraway was third. Fourth was Cody McPherson and Panunte came back through the pack for fifth. Heat winners were Adam Leslie, Lindberg and Wood.

Peters Excavating FASTRAK Late Models: On the pole was the veteran Don Spiece with Kenny Winfield along side. On the initial drop of the green, Spiece wasn’t able to get up to speed and that caused some havoc back in the pack with contact between Tim Gillespie and Bill Gill, bringing out the only caution of the race. Spiece got it right on the restart, taking the early lead coming out of turn two and holding it for the first four laps. On lap five, Ed Carley took over the lead bringing Adam Ferri along for the ride. The two “old pro’s” then proceeded to put some distance on the field and with no yellow flags to bunch up the pack, Carley was able to hold off Ferri for the win, his first of 2012. Ferri was second with Darren Peters coming in third. Fourth was Zack Carley topping off a good night for the Carley family with Spiece hanging on for fifth. Heat winners were Ed Carley and Spiece.

J C Auto Street Stocks: Starting on the front row was Barry Blanchard with Chris Duchesne alongside and on the start, Duchesne was able to outrun Blanchard into turn one and then, with no yellow flags to bunch up the pack, was able to hold off the rest of the field to pick up his first career win. After some good racing between the three Camaros in the field, it was Jason Fontaine getting the best of them to come in second with Paul Reichel in third. Fourth was Blanchard with Jordan Fidler in fifth.

Weekend Motorsports Mini Stocks: Starting on the pole was Jocelyne Wiley alongside of former J C Auto Street Stock driver Ron Loggie and on the start, Loggie took the early lead coming out of turn four getting a push from the car behind him, Nate Monahan. Monahan kept the pressure up for the first four laps and then, surviving the only caution period of the run for a spin by Tyler Lafantaisie, was able to get around Loggie on lap five. Again, as the night seemed to be, the lack of yellow flags was the norm with the leader was able to distance himself from the field, and this race was no exception. All the racing was in behind the leader, Monahan, with Kyle Pelrine and Brandon Iudiciani having a good hard battle with Loggie. The last nine laps were all Monahan’s, taking his third win of 2012. Second was Loggie with Pelrine in third. Fourth was Iudicianni and Rob Overholt sneaking in fifth. Heat winners were Monahan and Iudicani.

Niagara Auto Sales Pro 4 Trucks: On the pole was third generation rookie driver Colton Ledingham with Adam Williams alongside of him. Williams grabbed the early lead and held it for the first two laps until the only yellow flag of this run for a spin by Danny Wurster. The restart put Mike Toovey along side of Williams and Toovey took advantage of this, taking the lead away from Williams and then running out to a good lead and ultimately the win. All the racing was in the pack with Greg Haegens and Adam Nicholls having a good battle for second. At the finish it was Toovey picking up his third win of 2012 with Haegens taking second and Nicholls in third. Fourth was Taylor Vanderzanden and Lee Sleight fifth. Heat winners were Ledingham and Toovey.

Frontier Auto Dismantlers Pure Stocks:Starting on the front row was Jon Vineski with Kyle Tomaski along side. On the green flag, Vineski grabbed the early lead and held it for the first six laps. On lap seven, the first yellow flag came out for Brad Alward losing his right rear wheel going into turn one and on the restart, Leroy Buscumb took the lead from Vineski and held it until the end, surviving two more restarts for spins. At the finish, it was Buscumb picking up his fourth win of 2012 with Sam Iftody second and Kyle Rothwell third. Fourth was Mason Smith with Billy Smith fifth. Heat winners were Vineski and Iftody.
