Peterborough Speedway Names David Brown Head Technical Inspector

Peterborough Speedway Names David Brown Head Technical Inspector

It isn’t Daytona or Indianapolis, but weekly short track racers are as committed to finding their way to victory lane as the drivers who compete on the national stage. While the trophies and cheques aren’t quite as big, observance of the rule book and the overall safety of the equipment is just as important.

Drivers in every division at Peterborough Speedway are required to take their cars through the Reinhart Trailer’s Tech Lane to be inspected before going onto the track each week. The top 3 finishers in any main event are also examined following the race. After having a variety of individuals perform the task over the past couple of seasons, the venue known as Canada’s Toughest 3rd of a Mile Paved Oval is proud to welcome David Brown as its head technical inspector.

The 52 year-old from the Ottawa area is a familiar face to Central Ontario area racers. He performed the same duties at Kawartha Speedway and his hometown Capital City Speedway. There was also a tenure with the Quebec arm of the American-Canadian Tour and the former CASCAR Super Series. Brown says that ensuring the cars are safe is just as important as making sure the teams are following the rule book for their particular class.

“I’ve been around the sport almost my entire life and there isn’t much that I haven’t seen over the years,” said Brown. “Racecar drivers and team owners are very creative and have many diverse ways of interpreting the rule book. We’ll be doing random checks in a number of different areas for the balance of the season to be certain that teams aren’t trying to push the envelope.”

While he declined to identify specific areas of the cars that would be checked, Brown – who worked as a mechanic with OC Transpo in the Nation’s Capital – wants the teams to understand that the most important aspect of his job is providing a safe racing environment for drivers in every division at the track.

After the Chase for the Colours Pole Qualifier – Sunday, June 28th – was postponed due to rain, a new month of action at the tight, tricky bullring on Mount Pleasant Road, west of the Liftlock City gets underway Saturday, July 4th. Mini Stock, Renegade Truck and the Earl Ireland Auto Sales Late Model divisions will be joined by the Ontario Modifieds Racing Series and Ontario Legends for Peterborough Speedway’s annual Autism Awareness Night. Pit gates will open at 3:00, with spectator grandstands unlocked at 5:00 and the first green flag at 6:00.

On the track, the Mini Stock, Renegade Truck and Late Model fields are still looking to have a repeat feature winner in this year’s action. A trend that began last year has continued so far in 2015, with a high level of competition in each class. For the Saturday, July 4th event, pit gates open at 3:00, with the spectator grandstands unlocked at 5:00 and the first green flag of the night at 6:00.

In the point standings, Tyler Junkin leads the Mini Stock chase by 28 markers over Donovan Price, with Kevin Strutt 3rd. Feature race winners Jack Dallin and Tim Burke are 4 points apart in the Renegade Truck division, with Chris Burrage 3rd. Tyler Betts heads the Late Model field, with an 8 point cushion over veteran Dave Morgan. Mark Gordon sits 3rd, 18 points behind Betts.

Looking ahead on the calendar finds some marquee events coming to the tight, tricky bullring on Mount Pleasant Road, west of the Liftlock City.

Hastie, Lovell Bring Home First Checkers Of The Season

Hastie, Lovell Bring Home First Checkers Of The Season

Varney ON- It will be a night 14 year old Alex Hastie of Durham likely won’t forget as he managed to out duel a field of twenty Fun Stocks for his first checker of the season. The graduate from J-Car racing stepped up this season to fun stocks piloting #34 for Don Tremble and ever since the start of the season has always been close but tonight in front of family and friends was able to seal the deal. Second in this race would be #0 Bill Clarke from Mount Forest, third #84 Andrea Parsons from Clifford, fourth #5 Jeramy Duguay from Hanover and fifth #14 Luke Bos from Conn. It was also a memorable night for another Fun Stock racer #25 Billy Lovell from Mildmay as he brought home his first checker of the season. After taking a few seasons away from racing Lovell decide to return to racing this season in memory of his father Tom who lost his battle with cancer earlier this year and run a car with his dad’s old number and paint scheme and put it in victory lane. Second would go to #84 Andrea Parsons, third #0 Bill Clarke, fourth #48 John Green from Drayton and rounding out the top five #14 Luke Bos.

On tap this night was also the only appearance by the “Feature Stars” racing series which is a three track series set up to showcase young driving talent in the Jr Late Model and Mini Truck classes that run at Full Throttle, Grand Band and Sauble speedways. In the Jr Late Model class it was #49 Hayden Sim from London taking both feature races. In feature one he was followed by #14 Cody Wilds from Exeter in second, third was #15 Kaisha Zimouch from Mount Brydges, fourth #86 Owen Corriveau from Strathroy and fifth ##37 Eric Thom from Sauble Beach. In feature two second would go to #15 Kaisha Zimouch, third #29 Austin Arnel, fourth #37 Eric Thom, fifth #23.

In Mini Truck action the night belonged to #11 Kevin Strak as he would pilot his truck to victory lane twice in convincing fashion. In fact the top five would be the same order for both feature races with second going to #12 Tanner Pirie from Woodstock followed in third by his brother Cole Pirie in the #10, fourth would be #33 Hayden Sim from London and fifth place would be #17.

Mini Stock action would also see the same winner in both feature races and again it was no stranger to victory lane as #63 Brandon Crumbie from Cookstown would continue on what looks like an unstoppable run this season. In feature two though it was proven it is not always driving skill that gets you to victory lane luck does have to be on your side also. In feature two on a late race restart it would be the #35 of Bobby Tolton from Rockwood that would get the jump on the #63 of Crumbie putting him in chase mode with laps running out. Then as they came around corner four to get the two laps to go sign Tolton’s car would get loose and as he took his foot out of it to save it Crumbie would drive bye and keep his winning streak alive with #35 Bobby Tolton holding on for second. Third would go to #36 Corry Young from Owen Sound, fourth #73 Scott Schlueter from Stratford, fifth would be ##64 Dave Crumbie from Beeton. In feature one second would go to #36 Corry Young, third #73 Scott Schlueter, fourth #64 Dave Crumbie and rounding out the top five #9 Tessa Cremasco from Mount Forest.

Not to be outdone the Street Stock division would also have a double feature winner in #35 Mike Thebeau from Mitchell. Thebeau did an excellent job getting his car through traffic in the early going in both features and once he got to the front there was no catching him. Second in the first feature would be #3 Mark King from Hillsburgh, third #20 Ryan Edwards-Kiss from Londesboro, fourth #7 Tim Tolton driving for Paul Huskins and rounding out the top five was #5 Dave Grey Jr from Hanover. In feature two second would go to #7 Tolton, third #01 Travis Farrow from Holstein, fourth #20 Edwards-Kiss and in fifth #3 King.

Teams Punch Their Ticket for the Autumn Colours Classic Dance at Peterborough Speedway

Teams Punch Their Ticket for the Autumn Colours Classic Dance at Peterborough Speedway

There will be no racing Saturday, June 27th at Peterborough Speedway.

This weekend, the action shifts to Sunday, June 28th for the Chase for the Colours Pole Qualifying Event – presented by Lucas Oil Products – with the afternoon’s first green flag at 2:30.

To say the Autumn Colours Classic is a major league motorsports attraction would be the ultimate understatement. In its 23rd year of existence, the 3 day extravaganza – staged October 9th, 10th and 11th – on Canada’s Toughest 3rd of a Mile Paved Oval is the event every short track racer in the province wants to add to their resume. With close to 300 entries, spread over almost 10 divisions, teams start doing their homework early in the year in an effort to be named the next Autumn Colours Classic champion. Local racer or invader, Peterborough Speedway owner/promoter J.P. Josiasse says it’s all about putting your best effort forward.

“Our home track regulars crave the chance to capture the winner’s hardware in front of our regular fan base,” said Josiasse. “With tracks from one end of the region to the other represented, this show is all about competition and putting together your strongest performance of the season. Each year, we have some first time runners taking a crack at things, alongside some of the most experienced short track racers in the industry.”

Sunday, June 28th the Chase for the Colours Pole Qualifier is the first of a pair of special shows that will help determine the starting order for what is known as the Super Bowl of Stock Car Racing. Late Model teams – competing under the Earl Ireland Auto Sales banner – will run a 75 lap main event. Battlefield Equipment Rental 4Fun, Mini Stock and Paul Davis Systems Thunder Car drivers will battle for 25, 30 and 40 laps respectively. The first and second place finishers in each feature race earn the front row Autumn Colours Classic starting spots for the Thanksgiving Weekend event.

In 2014, Nick Goetz, Terry Hubbard, Tyler Junkin and Ken Grubb claimed the ‘Chase’ checkered flags in the Late Model, 4Fun, Mini Stock and Thunder Car ‘A’ main events. In the annual Autumn Colours Classic headline dance, they finished 13th, 2nd, 2nd and 22nd respectively.

The Chase for the Colours pole qualifying show – presented by Lucas Oil Products – is one of the most popular single day events on Peterborough Speedway’s annual schedule. Pit gates for the Sunday, June 28th program open at 11:00, with the spectator areas unlocked at 1:00 and the day’s first green flag at 2:30.

Wild Night At Flamboro Speedway

Wild Night At Flamboro Speedway

By Randy Spencer – It seemed like any other night at Bennett Chevrolet Flamboro Speedway. The Lucas Oil Can Am Midgets and Lucas Oil Canadian Vintage Modified were on hand for another exciting night of racing action. But as the night wore I had to check to see if there was a full moon. Several others said the same thing as well.

Early on in practice some drivers had some bad luck in practice and some delays as the 49 Can Am Midget of Lucas Smith lost his right rear tire in practice and a couple other cars also experienced problems in pre-race warm ups. Racing action got underway at 7pm with the Mini Stocks up first.

A.J. Miller and Hudson Nagy led the field of 15 cars to green and immediately Nagy shot out to the lead. In hot pursuit was Jake Gilbert, Chad Ditner, Shawn Taylor and Clark Hartman. As the race continued on this pack of cars stated to put some real estate in between themselves and the rest of the pack. Gilbert was giving Nagy all he could handle. As the cars came out of turn four on lap 20, Nagy led the pack across the line to lead flag to flag with no cautions to pick up the checkered flag. Gilbert car was disqualified in race tech at the end of the night.

In the first Thunder Car feature ten cars took the green as Shawn Chenoweth and Mark Burbridge were up front. As in the Mini Stock feature, Chenoweth and Burbridge broke away from the rest of the pack and another caution free race saw Chenoweth lead from flag to flag to pick up the checkers.

The Pro 4 Modifieds hit the track for their ten lap heat race. Robert Mercer and Josh Lassaline were on the pole for this one. An early spin on lap two going innto turn three when Robert Mercer went around and brothers Brian and Dan Nanticoke were unable to steer clear of the carnage and ended up into the wall. Both were unable to continue with Dan finished for the night.

The Lucas Oil Canadian Vintage Modifieds were up next with two 10 laps heat races. Six cars would hit the track for each race with Rick Schurr and Dustin Hood up front for race #1. A few cautions early and it was decided the race would be shortened to 8 laps from 10. Schurr led the first couple of laps but the two time champion Jason Keen was to much to hold back and took the lead on the second restart and held off the pack for the win.

Race #2 saw a great battle between Ben Charbonneau and Steve Trendell as the two battled the entire race. They were bumper to bumper and door to door for most of the race with Trendell proving there is an outside groove that can be raced at Flamboro. Charbonneau would hold off the hard charging 57 car and pick up the heat win.

Last up before intermission was two heats for the Lucas Oil Can Am TQ Midgets. The first ten lap race saw Jeff Blackburn and Todd Creswell lead the field to green. The cars battled early for position and as the charged down the back stretch on lap four. Looking at the video, it appears that the 7 car of Jeff Blackburn maybe slowed a bit and the 43 of J.R. Fitzpatrick got in to the back of him bouncing off and the back end slid out to the left. That caused the 7 car to clip the 94 of Ryan Fraser as he passed by and he too like Fitzpatrick rolled the car. A red flag came out while emergency teams raced to the scene. All drivers involved were pronounced medically clear and the mess was cleared way. Both cars were finished for the night. A shame for Fitzpatrick who always loves to run any car a this home track and for Fraser, who entered the night second in points. As the race resumed, Cresswell and Tyler Turnbull continued to battle and as the checkers flew on lap ten the veteran Cresswell picked up the win.

The second heat wasn’t quite as action packed but whenever the Can Am Midgets hit the track it’s exciting. Dave Hickson and Adrian Stahle were up front for this one. Defending champion Mack Deman was sixth in the pack of eight cars. By lap five Deman was up to second place trailing the leader Rob Neely. Neely wouldn’t give it up and took the checkered flag to end round one.

Intermission saw the first Spectator Drags of the season. the first one was rained out. This of course is the always exciting King of the Hill. Several fans brought their grocery getters out of the parking lot for a chance at the $100 and a shiny trophy. After several rounds of exciting action with a few close calls and spins, the red mustang driven by Johnny Cote was the winner.

Round two of features got underway and Stepheny Dean lined up beside A.J Miller to get this 20 lapper under way. Rich Schwartzenburg had a great looking car and it ran as good as it looked. Ricky held off the pack and was in the lead for the first 14 laps. Behind the field was banging and crashing and the 71 of Russ Aicken and 38 of Rodney Rutherford were mixing it up. They were followed close by Gillian Hils, Clark Hartman and Jake Gilbert. Aicken who has been running hot and cold this season in the new Cobalt was in a rocket tonight. His battle with Rutherford continued and the 38 car had to make a pit stop after getting the black flag because his rear bumper was being held on by a thread. Aicken managed to catch Schwatzenburg and on lap 15 would take the lead for good and cross the line first for the win.

In the second Thunder Car feature Justin Collison and Bobby Mercer were on the point. three laps in the 77 of Mitch Miljanovic had a fuel leak and took the car pit side. Collison was the early leader until lap 5 heading into turn two he spun the car and brought out a caution. It was undetermined if Collison had hit the fuel spill or was bumped from behind. It was decided that just Collison would head to the rear of the field for the restart. Shawn Arnott assumed the lead and held it for a couple of laps until Shawn Chenoweth decided he had to break out. Chenoweth, Arnott and Mark Burbridge battle each other for the entire race. Justin Collison and Bobby Mercer mad their own exciting race further back in the field. As the cars took the checkered flag it was Shawn Chenoweth sweeping both ends of the features for the second straight week.

The Pro 4 Modifieds were up next for their 15 lap main event of the evening. Craig Shaver was on the pole and immediately shot out to a big lead, half a track at one point. Bill Pearsall and Linc Erison were battling for second and third when Pearsall started to develop and smoke issue. It got heavier as the race wore on and as the cars neared the finish the smoke was quite heavy. The checkered flag flew and Shaver picked up the feature win as Pearsall slowed from second and finished fourth. After the race officials decided to make Pearsall last running car.

The Lucas Oil Canadian Vintage Modifieds were up for their feature event with Schurr and Hood on the pole again. Two cautions in the first four laps made it seem it might be a long race but they got things worked out and the race went smooth. Once again Charbonneau battled hard with Steve Trendell along with a few other cars making it a very exciting race. As the race wore on, perhaps running on the outside all night caught up with Trendell and he faded slightly letting the 18 of Jason Keen and 15 of T.J. Marshall to squeeze by. The checkers flew and it was Ben Charbonneau picking up the feature win.

Last race of the night was the Lucas Oil Can Am Midget 25 lap main event. A short delay as medical personnel had to deal with a medical emergency on the grandstand side. Always an exciting spectacle, the cars went four wide to salute the fans. Like Josh Paxton would say, “Only the best got four abreast.” Todd Cresswell and Adrian Stahle were on the pole. Stahle took the lead followed by Tyler Turnbull and Mack DeMan as the cars came around to complete lap one. Stahle opened up a sizable lead on Turnbull and Deman. Deman tried for several laps but was finally managed to catch and get around Turnbull to take over second place down the back stretch. Heading out of four Deman pulled a nice inside out move and got passed Stahle and was in the lead and he held on for his third consecutive feature victory. Rookie A.J. Pescetti was racing his first Can-Am Midget race and finished 13th. Other standout rookies included Craig Pitchell, James Marche and Steve Murdock.
That brought to a close another exciting night of racing at Bennett Chevrolet Flamboro Speedway. Please make plans to join us next week, June 27th. Racing gets under way at 6pm as the Lucas Oil Sportsman Cup Series invades Flamboro and will run a 100 lap feature event. The race will be streamed live on Race Time Radio at 8pm. The Ontario Modifieds make their return and are also joined by he Ray’s Auto Centre & Towing Thunder Cars, the Klotz Auto Repair & Engine Machine Shop Mini Stocks and the BOMB Energy Drink Pro 4 Modifieds. Pit gates open at 3pm, Grandstands at 5pm, Time Trials for the Sportsman series 530pm and green flag flies at 6pm.

Houghton Takes Two More

Houghton Takes Two More

Varney ON- Under near perfect weather conditions for the first time this season fans were treated to some more great side by side edge of your seat racing action this past Friday night at Full Throttle Motor Speedway.

In the Winged Modified class it was the #33 Tom Houghton from Kitchener still dominating the class with both feature wins. Although his fellow competitors are getting closer to his back bumper they still have not been able to catch him yet. In feature one second would go to #0 Cliff Hodgkinson from Breslau, third #10 Christopher Hale from Guelph, and fourth would be #46 Lisa Hodgkinson from Breslau. Feature two would see second go to #10 Christopher Hale, third #0 Cliff Hodgkinson and fourth #46 Lisa Hodgkinson.

The Thunder Car class this night saw a lower than normal car count due to other commitments by drives so to give the fans a great show the Thunder Cars where raced at the front of the Street Stock class giving fans a chance to watch a race within a race. First in each feature this night would be the #17 of Tristan Gill from Waterloo, second in feature one would go to #36 Gary Elliott from Waterdown followed by #34 Gregg Rauscher from Thorold. Feature two would see second go to #34 Rauscher as the #36 of Elliott was caught up in an early race wreak.

In the Street Stock class fans were treated to some outstanding racing action as this class continues to grow each week. Feature one came down to a restart and a one lap shoot out and in the end it would be the #01 Travis Farrow from Holstein edging out #35 Mike Thebeau from Mitchell for the win. Third was #20 Ryan Edwards-Kiss from Londesboro, fourth #3 Mark King from Hillsburgh and fifth #1 Bob Parsons. Feature two would see #35 Mike Thebeau get his car out front and not fall to a late race caution this time as he took home the checker flag.

The Final Fling of Spring Thrills Fans at Peterborough Speedway

The Final Fling of Spring Thrills Fans at Peterborough Speedway

With a new season set to debut the very next day, a strong group of Battlefield Equipment Rental 4Fun, Paul Davis Systems Thunder Car, Earl Ireland Auto Sales Late Model and INEX Ontario Legend race teams gave the old one a rousing send-off – Saturday, June 20th – at Canada’s Toughest 3rd of a Mile Paved Oval.

Feature race action for the night got underway with a 20 lapper for the Battlefield Equipment Rental 4Fun teams, as Tiffany Vanderbelt and Brandon Feeney paced the pack to the Great Canadian RV green flag. Before the first lap had been completed, Ryan Oosterholt moved into the top spot and wasn’t challenged for the duration of the event. Even a yellow flag for a lap 13 incident between Cody Fenton and Criss Tuck couldn’t slow the charge to his second win of the year. Jeremy Kelly, Sean Kennedy, Ray Schroer and Doug Wills chased the driver of the #79 across the stripe.

Bailey Jacobs and Rob Richards brought the Paul Davis Systems Thunder Car drivers from the staging area for their ‘A’ main, with 20 laps to settle the issue. Early contact between Fedele DiBello and Dan Archibald slowed the pace and by the time there were 4 laps complete, veteran Steve Mayhew was in charge of the field. He was challenged high and low by Archibald and Anthony DiBello with 9 down and DiBello took the spot with 14 circuits on the board and held on for his 3rd feature win of the year. Archibald, Mayhew, Jacobs and Richards completed the top 5.

With Mark Gordon and Jack Horner leading the way, the Earl Ireland Auto Sales Late Model runners took to the track for their 25 lap shootout. Coming to the stripe to log the first lap, Dave Morgan and Cole McFadden made contact. After a quick pit stop, Morgan continued while McFadden’s ride was through for the night. Former OSCAAR Super Late Model runner Al Shepstone took the lead with 3-wide pass on the backstretch and would never give up the spot. Tyler Betts, Gordon, Morgan and Horner chased the winner to the line.

Action wrapped-up for the night with 25 laps of INEX Ontario Legends Series excitement. Cole Ledson and Kevin Foisy brought the field to the green flag. Even though it took 3 attempts to get the race underway, the Legends put a strong show on the track. A late race yellow put Foisy and Nicholas Ledson on the front row with 19 laps complete. Heading through the first and second turns, the pair made contact. Both cars were to be sent to the back of the field, but Ledson was unable to continue. After a 6 lap shootout, Brian Saunders picked-up his second win of the year. Cole Ledson was second, with Jacob Sheridan 3rd. Foisy rebounded to finish 4th, just ahead of Jamie Riberdy.

Sean Kennedy, Ryan Oosterholt, Ray Schroer and Keith Parkes took the Battlefield Equipment Rental 4Fun heat races. Both of the night’s Paul Davis Systems Thunder Car qualifiers were won by Dan Archibald. Dave Morgan with a pair, Tyler Betts and Mark Gordon shared the Earl Ireland Auto Sales Late Model preliminary rounds, while INEX Ontario Legend heat races went to Brian Saunders, with a pair, Nicholas Ledson and Kevin Foisy.

Bullring bullet points: Dan Archibald make his second Peterborough Speedway start of the year in the Thunder Car ranks. Bradley Robinson took his first career green flag in the same division. Doug Wills took a turn behind the wheel of the #64 4Fun machine, filling-in for Gary Fallis…After winning the event last week, Matthew VanDerBelt was the first car to retire from this week’s 4Fun division feature…Kyle Donaldson took a turn at the controls of Howie Crowe’s #28 Thunder Car…In a special Father’s Day draw, Ronald Sayeau won a Peterborough Speedway fan package, including a race night in one of the track’s tower suites.

Peterborough Speedway takes Saturday, June 27th off, but will host the annual Chase for the Colours Pole Qualifying Event Sunday, June 28th. The Battlefield Equipment Rental 4Fun, Mini Stock, Paul Davis Systems Thunder Car and Earl Ireland Auto Sales Late Model teams will compete in extra distance feature events that will determine the front row starting spots for the 23rd Annual Autumn Colours Classic. Pit gates will open at 11:00, with spectator grandstand access at 1:00 and the afternoon’s first green flag at 2:30.

Peterborough Speedway Feeds the Need for Motorsports Excitement

Peterborough Speedway Feeds the Need for Motorsports Excitement

The motorsports experience Central Ontario craves roars back to life Saturday, June 20th with a thrilling night of action featuring the Battlefield Equipment Rental 4Fun, Paul Davis Systems Thunder Car, Earl Ireland Auto Sales Late Model and INEX Ontario Legend divisions. As a special attraction, there will also be kid’s barrel races at intermission.

While it’s technically still early in the calendar, a trend that began last year has continued in 2015. In the most recent night of action, each of the feature race winners logged their first checkered flag of the season. In all of the track’s 5 regular divisions, the only driver with more than one main event win in the same division is last year’s Thunder Car track champion Anthony DiBello, who visited Dart Heating and Air Conditioning victory lane Saturday, May 16th and Saturday, June 6th. Ryan Oosterholt has a pair of ‘A’ main wins, coming in the 4Fun and Mini Stock divisions. Track owner and promoter J.P. Josiasse says the fans have been impressed with seeing different drivers in the winner’s circle.

“Everyone loves to share in the excitement of a race win by their favourite driver and our regular fan base has had plenty to cheer about over the last couple of seasons,” said Josiasse. “We’re definitely spreading things around where the checkered flags are concerned and that gets people talking and competitive racing week-to-week puts people in the seats.”

Even in the special guest divisions – where the INEX Ontario Legends Series has logged a pair of starts – there has yet to be a repeat winner. Their cars may be maintained in the same shops, but Brian Saunders and Kevin Foisy have claimed checkered flags on May 16th and June 6th respectively.

On Saturday, June 20th – which will be the final Saturday night show for the month – pit gates will open at 3:00, with the spectator grandstands unlocked at 5:00. Racing will get underway at 6:00.

Bullring bullet points: Peterborough Speedway will take Saturday, June 27th off, but will host the annual Chase for the Colours Pole Qualifying Event Sunday, June 28th. The Battlefield Equipment Rental 4Fun, Mini Stock, Paul Davis Systems Thunder Car and Earl Ireland Auto Sales Late Model teams will compete in extra distance feature events that will determine the front row starting spots for the 23rd Annual Autumn Colours Classic.

Meet The Drivers Night At Flamboro Speedway

Meet The Drivers Night At Flamboro Speedway

 By Randy Spencer – It was Meet the Drivers Night this past Saturday at Bennett Chevrolet Flamboro Speedway and once again as in previous years it was a huge hit with fans young and old. The front straight was lined three wide with cars from turn one back to turn four and hundreds of fans flooded the track at intermission to get up close with their heroes, get an autograph and take photos.

Racing got underway at 7pm with the first Pure Stock feature event. Sam Heibein and Michael Kenny were on the poll for the one. Right off the start however it didn’t look like it was going to be Kenny’s night. In turn three on the first lap the 59 car of Peter Becker got tangled with Kenny bringing out a caution. The 1 car of John Cote was running a good race but was shown the black flag. He continued the race and was disqualified for not obeying the black flag. The 44 of Sam Heibein was running up front and mistakenly thought the black flag was for him and slowed but regained racing speed but still lost several spots. Becker who had taken the lead earlier continued to stay out front with Andy Wheller and Kenny in hot pursuit. As the checkered flag flew, Becker crossed first but was put back to second after the starter had called him for a jump on the original green. That gave the win to Wheller, followed by Becker and Kenny.Next race up was the first Mini Stock feature. A couple of youngsters up front for this one as Hudson Nagy lined up along side Jake Gilbert. The first caution came out on lap six as the 79 car of Steve Deleeuw spun in turn four. On the restart, going into turn three the 32 car of Gillian Hils made a hard right turn towards the wall and hit hard. It looked bad at first but she was eventually able to continue in the race. Jake Gilbert led the first 7 laps but Blair Wickett was just to much for Gilbert and he took the lead and held it to the checkers. Russ Aicken finished second followed by Gilbert in third.

Wayne Phillips and Justin Collison were on the pole for the first Thunder Car feature of the night. The young Collison had been showing a lot of improvement of late and held of a hard charging veteran pack for 9 laps but eventually his London Recreational Racing teammate, Shawn Chenoweth, showed the experience and got by and picked up another win. Mark Burbridge was second while Shawn Arnott came home third.

The Late Models were back in action after last weeks exciting APC Meineke 100 won by hometown hero Dale Shaw. Nick Roth lined up along side Shaw in this one as the cars took the green. As the cars came out of turn four on lap one, not sure if something broke or if Brad Corcoran just hit the wall but the hard hit brought his car to a stop in turn one with what appeared to be a broken rear end. The cars once again took the green and raced problem free to the end with Dale Shaw winning once again, leading flag to flag. Roth raced a great race, never far behind Shaw and finished a strong and close second.

The Pro 4 Modifieds only race one heat and one feature for their club. Nine cars took the green and young Josh Lassaline led flag to flag to pick up the heat win. That brought an end to the first set of features and onto the Meet the Drivers night at intermission.

After the fans cleared the track, we got right into round two of features. Steve Deleeuw and Jeff Miller were up front. Sam Heibein picked up where he left off and led the first five laps. But the veteran Peter Becker got by the young Heibein and took the lead on lap six. Becker got out to a big lead rather quick but seemed to slow somewhat in lapped traffic and on lap 9 Michael Kenny caught Becker and took the lead. As the checkered flag flew, Kenny picked up another win followed by Becker and Andy Wheller in third.

Stepheny Dean and Mark DaSilva were on the point for Mini Stock feature number two. Derek Jackson in the number four started fourth in the field but quickly shot out to a lead. A few laps later Hudson Nagy went around in turn four and was hit in the side by Chad Ditner. On the restart Gillian Hils took the lead and broke away from the pack. A tight pack of cars entered turn one and two and Jackson and Shawn Taylor got tangled up and Taylor spun with Jake Gilbert getting involved. On the restart, Wickett took the lead from Hils. The cars continued to mix it up and on lap 12 Russ Aicken retired to the pits with a flat tire. Another caution and eventually a red came out a few laps later as the 97 of Blair Wickett hit the wall hard coming out of turn two. Wickett had been leading but touched with Hils and he got out of control and went into the wall. Hils was shown to the back for rough driving and that put the veteran Clark Hartman on the pole for the restart. Hartman would continue to hold the lead with Sheldon Bossom close behind but managed to pickup the win.

The Thunder Car feature saw Justin Collison on the pole once again this time lined up along side Bobby Mercer. Collison got out to a lead but this time held it for just three laps. Shawn Arnott got by and led lap four but Shawn Chenoweth took the lead and continued to stretch it out until he came home with his second feature win of the night and collected the bonus. Shawn Arnott managed to close the gap somewhat and he once again raced a fine race battling Chenoweth as he seems to every Saturday night.

The Late Models hit the track for the next to last race of the night. Brad Corcoran had his rear end troubles fixed and took the green. Kevin Albers and Robbie Thompson led the field to green in the 25 lap feature race. Albers had bad luck early however as on lap one heading into turn three, something seemed to break and he made a straight line for the wall hitting it hard. Hard luck for the racer known as “Killer”, former Flamboro Thunder Car champion. A complete restart took place and Robbie Thompson lined up this time beside David Elliott. Seven laps in heading into turn three, the 17 of Nick Roth and 56 of Thompson got involved, spinning out bringing out the caution. David Elliott raced a fine race, returning after many weeks off and led flag to flag picking up the feature win. Dale Shaw came in second and Brad Corcoran, who started in last due to his car problems in race 1, made it all the way up to third for a strong comeback.

The Pro 4 Modified feature was last up on the night. Craig Shaver and Linc Ersion sat on the pole for this one. Talking to Erison earlier in the night, he was quite happy with how the car was much better of late and that showed as he started off strong. But the veteran Shaver was just a little better and took the lead followed by Erison and Robert Mercer. Shaver got out to a big lead. On lap six however, Mercer slowed heading out of turn two and Erison along with Brian Nanticoke and Josh Lassaline all hit hard causing a huge mess. Bill Pearsall also had a flat and after losing another car early, it was decide with just four cars remaining the race would be called, giving the win to Shaver.

That brought to a close another exciting night of racing at Bennett Chevrolet Flamboro Speedway. Please make plans to join us next week, June 20th. It’s the first Spectator Drag Night of the Year. This is where you can bring your street car out and line up beside another car to get one winner at the end. You need a helmet and working seat belt.

Turning Some Hot Laps Under the Warm Sun at Peterborough Speedway

Turning Some Hot Laps Under the Warm Sun at Peterborough Speedway

Race fans got everything they could possibly want from a late spring Saturday night at Canada’s Toughest 3rd of a Mile Paved Oval. The lightning quick Can Am TQ Midgets joined the hometown favorites in the Mini Stock, Battlefield Equipment Rental 4Fun, Renegade Truck and Earl Ireland Auto Sales Late Model divisions for a stellar show Saturday, June 13th.

Feature race action got underway with a 20 lapper for the Mini Stock field, as Ross Couture and Darryl Anthony paced the pack to the Great Canadian RV green flag. With just a single lap on the scoreboard, the yellow flag flew for a turn 2 incident involving Anthony and Brandon Hannah. With 6 laps complete, Paul Hannah and Dwight Lavoie came together on their way into the 3rd turn in a crash that also collected Brandon Hannah. On the restart, Kevin Strutt and last week’s feature winner Tyler Junkin were in control of the field. With a late race pass, former track champion Ryan Oosterholt took the checkered flag over Tyler Junkin, Kevin Strutt, Donovan Price and Paul Hannah.

Steve Foster and Amanda Connolly – each making their first starts of the year, brought the Earl Ireland Auto Sales Late Models to the stripe for a 25 lap headline dance. With a pair of laps on the board Kevin Buscher, Matt Spence and Cole McFadden were involved on the front stretch. Near halfway, Steve Foster took control the issue, but gave up the top spot to Ryan Kimball with 14 laps down. As the lap counter rolled 16 complete, the yellow flag flew again as Bryan Sudsbury spun on the backstretch. On the same caution period, Jack Horner headed pit-side for a quick fix. Kimball would restart flanked by Foster, with Dave Morgan and Tyler Betts a row behind. A hard hit by Spence and Al Shepstone into the 3rd turn wall saw the red flag displayed, but neither driver was injured. There was hard racing throughout the field as Kimball took the win. Morgan, Mark Gordon, Betts and Foster finished 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th.

With Ray Schroer and Jeremy Kelly on the point, the Battlefield Equipment Rental 4Fun teams were set for a 20 lapper. Ryan Oosterholt jumped out to an early lead – of sometimes as much as a half a track – with Schroer and Cody Fenton filling out the top 3. The yellow flag flew with 12 complete for debris in the 2nd turn. Over the closing stages, Oosterholt maintained his advantage, but Matthew VanDerBelt was closing quickly on the leader. The driver of the #69 would take the win by the width of a front bumper, over Oosterholt. Sean Kennedy, James Townsend and Tiffany VanDebelt completed the top 5.

A pair of former track champions – Bill O’Hara and Jack Dallin – brought the Renegade Truck division starters from the staging area for their 15 lap main event. A number of yellow flags sorted out the finishing order, with Jack Dallin taking the win over Tim Burke. Chris Burridge, Jordan Dallin and Bill O’Hara Jr.

The night’s final feature event of the night belonged to the Can Am TQ Midgets, who brought 17 starters to the line. After surviving a late race yellow flag for an incident between Todd Cresswell and James Marche, Mack DeMan took the win over Darren McLennan, Ryan Fraser, Brandon Zavarella and Lucas Smith. Follow the series through their 50th anniversary season at www.canammidgets.com.

Qualifying heat race wins went to Ryan Oosterholt, Brandon Hannah, Steve Brier and Dwight Lavoie in the Mini Stock field. Bryan Sudsbury, Tyler Betts, defending track champion Ryan Kimball and Jeff Toms took the Earl Ireland Auto Sales Late Model preliminary rounds. Battlefield Equipment Rental 4Fun qualifiers went to Sean Kennedy with a pair, Cody Fenton and Matthew VanDerBelt. Jack Dallin and Tim Burke shared the Renegade Truck division opening rounds. Darren McLennan and Adrian Stahle took the Can Am Midget heat races. Mack DeMan won the ‘B’ Main last chance qualifier.

Bullring bullet points: Peterborough Speedway regular John Ferguson pocketed the $461.00 payoff in the 50/50 draw…The 3 Parkes Racing cars in the 4Fun division were all in attendance, but with different drivers due to a family commitment…Several drivers including Brad Lavalle, Donovan Price, Matthew VanDerBelt and Cody Fenton participated in the Ontario Modifieds Racing Series ‘Test a Mod’ program earlier in the day.

Canada’s Toughest 3rd of a Mile Paved Oval hosts action with the Battlefield Equipment Rental 4Fun, Paul Davis Systems Thunder Car, Earl Ireland Auto Sales Late Model and INEX Ontario Legend divisions Saturday, June 20th. Pit gates open at 3:00, with the spectator grandstands unlocked at 5:00 and the night’s first green flag at 6:00.

Canada’s Toughest 3rd of a Mile Paved Oval is Set for a Saturday Night Showdown

Canada’s Toughest 3rd of a Mile Paved Oval is Set for a Saturday Night Showdown

Solid early season shows have Peterborough Speedway’s 2015 calendar off to a rocking start. Car counts have been great and spectator interest is strong. It’s the perfect combination for an exciting campaign at the tight, tricky bullring on Mount Pleasant Road, west of the Liftlock City. Track owner and promoter J.P. Josiasse says he’s pleased to see the way things have gotten underway.

“This is exactly how I hoped the season would start,” said Josiasse. “Other than the May 30th rainout – which is nothing we can control – I think things are going according to plan. Fans are seeing some exciting racing and we’re barely a month into the schedule. I like where we’re headed and the best is still to come.”

Losing one event to weather may seem as a negative point to some, but on a positive note, it has allowed Earl Ireland Auto Sales Late Model driver Tyler Betts and Renegade Truck runner Tim Burke to tell their sponsors, fans, family and friends that they’ve been leading the points in their respective divisions since the start of the year. Each driver won the main event during the Saturday, May 16th season opener and their classes have yet to return to action.

Racing returns to the venue known as Canada’s Toughest 3rd of a Mile Paved Oval Saturday, June 13th as the Can Am TQ Midgets join the Battlefield Equipment Rental 4Fun, Mini Stock, Renegade Truck and Earl Ireland Auto Sales Late Model divisions. There will also be kid’s bike races during the intermission. Pit gates open at 3:00, with the spectator grandstands unlocked at 5:00 and the night’s first green flag at 6:00.

Looking ahead on the agenda finds the Chase for the Colours Pole Qualifying event slated for a 2:30 start Sunday, June 28th. Extra distance events for the 4Fun, Mini Stock, Thunder Car and Late Model teams will help determine guaranteed starting spots for the 23rd Annual Autumn Colours Classic in October. Saturday, July 18th the APC Pro Late Model Series will make its Peterborough Speedway debut for a 100 lap spectacular, along with the 4Fun, Thunder Car and OSCAAR Midget divisions.

Dale Shaw Wins Exciting Inaugural APC Meineke 100 At Flamboro Speedway

Dale Shaw Wins Exciting Inaugural APC Meineke 100 At Flamboro Speedway

By Randy Spencer – The first of two APC United Late Model Series 100 lap races took place at Bennett Chevrolet Flamboro Speedway Saturday night and it was one of the best races in recent memory. The crowd was huge, the biggest I’ve seen personally in a long time.

Qualifying for the APC 100 got underway at 5pm and when the dust settled Jamie Cox set the fast time at 15.271. Dale Shaw was second at 15.321 with Brandon Watson laying down a time of 15.324 to finish third. The rest of the times are listed below.

Racing got underway at 6 pm with the first round of features for the home divisions. Pure Stocks were up first with Michael Kenny and Lofton Schuts on the pole. On the first lap the 17 of Blair Mayhew got lose coming out of turn four and into a couple cars. Kenny led from flag to flag to pick up the win.

The first Mini Stock feature saw a return of a former competitor behind the wheel in Brandon McFerran’s #64. Ron McFerran used to race the car but when son Brandon got old enough to take over, Ron stepped back and let the young gun take over. On lap 2, the 64 went around bringing out the caution. Russ Aicken led from flag to flag to pick up the checkered flag.

In the Thunder Car feature, Mark Burbridge and Shawn Arnott broke away from the pack with Burbridge picking up the win.

The first 22 cars were set for the APC Meineke 100 through time trials. A, B feature would be run to decide the final four spots. With eight cars taking the green that would mean four wouldn’t make the show. The race didn’t start well for Jr. Farrelly. Some tire smoke was coming from the 72 car on lap seven and he would eventually take it to the pits. Trevor Collver and Tom Gibbons battled early with the 97 of Collver making his way to the front where he would remain and pick up the checkered flag.

The second round of features followed with newcomer Joe Fleet lining up beside Tyler Mayhew as they led a field of 12 cars to green. Mayhew led lap one with Wayde Thorne leading the next two. But before long the top two cars in points found their way to the front and once again waged battle. Michael Kenny and Andy Wheller battled bumper to bumper as they did in round one but this time the veteran Wheller held off the hard charging Kenny to pick up the checkered flag. After racing, these two are just two points apart with Wheller in front.

Rick Robinson and Blair Wickett were on the pole for this one as 18 cars took the green in the second 20 lap feature. An early caution on lap 4 as the 03 of Jake Gilbert had a tire go flat coming out of turn two and he slowed. Robinson, a veteran who has been coming on lately led the first four laps. Another caution a few laps later as three cars got mixed up in turn two. Russ Aicken’s good luck from race one wouldn’t continue as he along with Kyle Istead and Chad Corcoran got together. After that Ron McFerran would find his way to the front and after quite a while out of the race seat, he showed he had no rust and made it to the front and held a hard charge from Clark Hartman and Sheldon Bossom to pick up the checkered flag. Hudson Nagy finished 5th and sits atop Mini Stocks points leaders.

The final race before the 100 lapper was the second Thunder Car 20 lap feature. Mitch Miljanovic and Chris Howse were on the pole. Kevin Gallant and Shawn Arnott had some problems early on as did Howse. Once again a battle from two racers that have a bit of history as Brad Collison and Mark Burbridge battled hard. This continued on as it looked like Burbridge would pull a bump and run but Collison would have none of it and held on for the checkered flag. The 89 car driven by both Shawn Chenoweth and Brad Collison remain first in points as the night came to and end.
Just after 8pm, the cars lined up on the front stretch for driver introductions. Spencer Lewis was on track and introduced each driver and called out those famous words, Gentleman, start your engines. The cars came to life and we were ready to go. As 26 roaring Pro Late Models took the green we were underway. The race looked like it may go green for a while and it did until lap 28 when a caution flew as the 87 of Willie Reyns began to smoke. As the cards lined up for the restart Shawn Chenoweth was in the lead followed by Matt Pritiko, Jamie Cox, Mike Bentley and Dale Shaw. After a relatively good start, cautions began to breed cautions with several coming over the next 50 laps. On lap 44, several of the front runners got involved as some contact sent the leader Shawn Chenoweth around. Matt Pritiko mad a quick trip to the pits to repair a damaged rear bumper. After a delay, officials called the 51 of Mike Bentley as an involved car and he two took it to the pits only to return, a little hot under the collar. That put Dale Shaw and Jamie Cox up front. As the race wore on the two battled each other hard with Cox holding the lead. But a brilliant crossover pass late in the race by Shaw put him in front and he would hold off Cox and pick up the win at his home track. Top five, Dale Shaw, Jamie Cox, Brandon Watson, Jason Parker and Shawn Chenoweth. Full results below.

Big thanks to all the announcers tonight. Of course to Spencer Lewis for the great call on the APC race, to Gary Colling and Adam Ross for a great job as always and to Rob Howden for an amazing job. I was honored to be in the booth for the first time with my past boss over at Short Track Ontario. This guy is the real deal, runs ekartingnews.com and has called all types of racing all over the world. Can’t wait to hear him again July 1st.

That brought to a close another exciting night of racing at Bennett Chevrolet Flamboro Speedway. Please make plans to join us next week, June 13th and it’s Meet the Drivers Night at intermission as fans get to go out on the front stretch and meet the drivers. The Grisdale Late Models make their return and are also joined by he Ray’s Auto Centre & Towing Thunder Cars, the Klotz Auto Repair & Engine Machine Shop Mini Stocks, the BOMB Energy Drink Pro 4 Modifieds and the Pure Stocks. Pit gates open at 4pm, Grandstands at 5pm and green flag flies at 7pm.
