Peterborough Speedway Goes Back to Green with the Touring Chase for the Colours Qualifier

Peterborough Speedway Goes Back to Green with the Touring Chase for the Colours Qualifier

After Mother Nature caused another unplanned break in the schedule, Canada’s Toughest 3rd of Mile Paved Oval bounced back – Saturday, August 1st – as the Touring Chase for the Colours with the OSCAAR Super Late Models, Modifieds and Midgets joined the home track Battlefield Equipment Rental 4Fun and Mini Stocks for the opening round of the Hot August Night Series.

In the first feature event of the evening Cody Fenton and Sean Kennedy would bring the Battlefield Equipment Rental 4Fun teams to the Great Canadian RV green flag. Ryan Oosterholt jumped-out to an early lead and by the time a handful of laps showed on the scoreboard, the former track champion had caught the tail-end of the field. Kennedy and James Townsend – filling-in for Colin Parkes – held onto the 3rd spot, with Ray Schroer and Jordan Desroches rounding out the top 5. Oosterholt held off a strong charge from Kennedy – who ironically drives a car he purchased from the driver of the #79 machine – as he added another checkered flag to his 2015 win total.

With Ember Junkin and Steve Brier pacing the field, the Mini Stock field rolled from the staging area for their main 20 lap ‘A’ main. In one of his first runs of the season, Ryan Carr took control of the race early but as the race wore on the handle on his #3c started to go away, with Kevin Strutt challenging for the top spot. Not even a pair of late race caution flags and a green-white-checkered finish would deny Strutt from his very popular first win of the season. The division’s current point leader Tyler Junkin chased Strutt across the line with Brandon Hannah, Oosterholt, in the #45 usually run by Darryl Anthony and Donovan Price completing the top 5.

Jamie Bound claimed his second consecutive Peterborough Speedway OSCAAR Midget feature win over Brian Woodland, Richard Woodland, Dave Bradley and David Burrows. Gary McLean took the Modified division’s main event, with John Baker Jr., Chad Strawn, Brian McLean and Cory Horner second through 5th. Kevin Cornelius scored the OSCAAR Super Late Model win. J.R. Fitzpatrick, Kelly Balson, Ryan Kimball and Brent McLean followed Cornelius across the stripe. The full story from OSCAAR’s events can be found at www.oscaar.ca.

Qualifying heat races earlier in the night went to Ryan Oosterholt, James Townsend, Sean Kennedy and Jordan Desroches in the Battlefield Equipment Rental 4Fun. Donovan Price, Kevin Strutt, Brandon Hannah and Tyler Junkin took Mini Stock checkered flags. OSCAAR Midget preliminary rounds went to James Stanley, Jamie Bound, Rob McCall and Jessica James. Gary McLean with a pair, Cory Horner and Chris Milwain took the OSCAAR Modified heats. Ryan Kimball, J.R. Fitzpatrick, Mike Beyore and Kevin Cornelius claimed the Super Late Model qualifiers.

Bullring bullet points: The night’s 50/50 draw paid just over $873 to Laurie Griffin of Oshawa…Events got underway with a free corn roast presented by The Old Smoke House, Peterborough Speedway, OSCAAR and Farm Bro Racing.

The Hot August Night Series of racing continues Saturday, August 8th with the Lucas Oil Sportsman Cup Breast Cancer Society 100. There will also be a Vintage Modified Invitational event – with dirt and asphalt teams battling for their ‘King of Coupes’ trophy – staged by Kawartha Coupes and Coaches. Peterborough Speedway’s Battlefield Equipment Rental 4Fun, Mini Stock and Paul Davis Systems Thunder Car divisions will be on the card as well. Pit gates will open at 2:00, with the spectator grandstands unlocked at 5:00 and racing at 6:00.

Race Recap: Armed Services Night

Race Recap: Armed Services Night

Delaware Speedway’s local divisions treated the fans to great racing and hard battles on Emergency Services Appreciation night Friday evening. Branden Verhoeven (#7) of Kerwood won the 35-lap feature race in the Ground Masters Super Stock Series, Tom Zagorodny (#77) of London won the 35-lap Demar Aggregates Truck Series race, and Steve Arrand (#37) of Ailsa Craig captured the checkered flag in the V8 Muscle Cars.

The Ground Masters Super Stocks started their evening of racing off a little wild with drivers racing very hard and patience running on an all time low in heat race competition. In the second of two heat races an accident on the back straightaway saw David McCullough (#39) of Glencoe connect with Calvin Verhayen’s #8 as a few other drivers piled in including Andrew Ferreira (#9) and Brittany Beatty (#14) of Woodstock. Ultimately all drivers were able to continue on in the evening and all were able to start the feature race.

Rookie Super Stock driver Calvin Verhayen (#8) led the field to the green flag and led the opening six laps before falling to points leader Darrell Lake (#77) of London, who completed the pass after several laps of side by side battling. The two swapped the lead numerous times until Gary Adriaensen took over the top spot on lap 10. Eventual winner Branden Verhoeven worked his way methodically through traffic and was alongside Gary Adriaensen by lap 20 battling for the lead. Adriaensen put up a strong fight as he is still searching for his first career victory in the series but by lap twenty-four Verhoeven had proved to be the better car and had his sights set on his second win in the last three events. A spin on the front straightaway by Devin Jarvis (#88) set up a green-white-checkered finish that saw Lake able to move up to finish second with Gary Adriaensen finishing third, Verhayen fourth, and Kenny McNicol Jr. (#77) of Exeter rounding out the top five. The championship battle took yet another turn as Adriaensen regains the top position after getting the best of Lake during heat race competition.

The Demar Aggregates Truck Series put on one of its best shows in recent memory, making a statement that the drivers continue to put on high quality racing that had fans buzzing. The feature race proved to be exciting with three wide battles and of course some of that beating and banging truck magic that the division is known for. In heat race competition, Lucas Manning (#66) took his first career win in a full sized race vehicle as well as David Bacon (#43).

Mickey Brydges (#55) of Guelph had one of his best career runs after leading the field to the green and leading the first seven laps. Defending champion Tom Zagorodny (#77) challenged for the lead and was able to take it away from Brydges on lap eight. Zagorodny went on to lead the remainder of the event but it was not without action as he had to face multiple restarts and work his way through lapped traffic that went 3-wide at times. A late race caution set up a dash to the finish and allowed Brydges one last opportunity to challenge for his first career win, but he would fall just short and settle for a career best finish of second place. Last week’s winner Rick Verberne (#88) of Otterville would finish the event in the third position. The win for Zagorodny is key as it puts him right in the thick of the championship battle as he looks to defend his title.

The V8 Muscle Cars had what might be called the finish of the night between Steve Arrand (#37) and Paul Fothergill (#33) of London who battled hard the last half of the 35-lap feature race. After trying the outside for a number of laps, a daring last lap move to the inside of Fothergill in turn one allowed Arrand to visit victory lane. The opening lap saw the only caution of the race for Darren Thirkettle (#56) of Strathroy breaking an axle and losing his tire in the apex of turn 3 and 4. Early on in the race Gary Zwygers (#93) of Cambridge led and looked strong but ultimately settled for third position when the checkered flag flew.

The next event at Delaware Speedway is this coming Wednesday August 5th with the Open Ontario Four-Cylinders featuring a $1000 to win Australian Pursuit. The event gets underway at 7:30pm.

Next Friday, August 7th is fan appreciation night with $10 admission. Residents of Komoka, Mt. Brydges, and Delaware can enter the event for free as part of a community appreciation program.

Peterborough Speedway Adds Kawartha Coupes & Coaches Invitational to Saturday, August 8th Schedule

Peterborough Speedway Adds Kawartha Coupes & Coaches Invitational to Saturday, August 8th Schedule

For the first time in a decade, the nostalgic feel of historic venues like the Canadian National Exhibition grounds and Pinecrest Speedway returns to Canada’s Toughest 3rd of a Mile Paved Oval as Kawartha Coupes & Coaches hosts a Vintage Modified invitational event as part of the regular night’s action – Saturday, August 8th – at Peterborough Speedway.

Top dirt and asphalt drivers from across the province will steer full-size replica racing machines from a by-gone era in an open competition for cash prizes, trophies…and bragging rights. There will be individual awards for pavement and dirt teams, with the winner in each designation taking home a ‘King of Coupes’ trophy. Event organizer Rob Clark of Cameron, Ontario – himself a former dirt track racer and current Vintage Modified team owner – says the idea came together as a way of testing the waters to see if there is enough interest to bring a show to the track annually each season.

“We may have been a little late in putting things together, but the word has spread quite quickly through the racing community,” said Clark. “There are a number of different sanctioning bodies out there and while this event won’t run under any particular group’s umbrella, we should be able to give fans an idea of what they can expect from this brand of racing.”

Clark says he’s hoping to turn some casual inquiries that he has made into strong representation from a number of different series. Brockville Speedway has a group that runs a half a dozen times each season at their home track and also makes selected starts at other speedways. With more than a dozen members, teams already have asphalt experience after making selected starts at the now shuttered Capital City Speedway. There has also been interest from teams that are part of a U.S. based tour and a few drivers who have cars, but race on only a part-time basis.

“J.P. Josiasse and Dave Sikma at Peterborough Speedway have been strong advocates of the Kawartha Coupes & Coaches agenda since its infancy,” said Clark. “That level of support and commitment speaks volumes for what we’re trying to accomplish. Knowing that we have the assurance of a motorsports facility with more than 45 years’ experience goes a long way when we’re trying to build a roster of drivers and interest in our program.”

The Kawartha Coupes & Coaches Vintage Modified Invitational Event – Saturday, August 8th – at Peterborough Speedway is supported by Clarke Motorsports Communications. To learn more, contact Rob Clark, 705.359.1275 or Richard Strange, 705.879.6518 richielive@live.ca, see www.peterboroughspeedway.com or like the Kawartha Coupes & Coaches page at www.facebook.com.

Adrian Stahle And Tim Norris Big Winners At Flamboro Speedway

Adrian Stahle And Tim Norris Big Winners At Flamboro Speedway

By Randy Spencer – The Lucas Oil Can Am Midgets and Ontario Pro Challenge were back at Bennett Chevrolet Flamboro Speedway for their third appearance of the year and once again didn’t disappoint the great crowd on hand enjoying the great summer weather and spectacular racing action once again.
The Pure Stocks and Late Models both had the night off but there was no shortage of exciting racing action. The Mini Stocks led the night off with their first feature. A.J. Miller and Jake Gilbert led the field of 15 to the first green of the night but the caution would fly early as a couple cars experienced some problems. The 38 of Rodney Rutherford slowed and exited while the 76 of Shawn Taylor cut down a tire, replaced it and made it back (along with Rutherford) just in time to join the rear of the field as they once again took green. Lots of three wide action early as the cars jockeyed for position. Blair Wickett made a return after several weeks off. He got high in turn two on lap two and lost some ground early. By lap six, Chad Corcoran and Russ Aicken were battling each other hard. Hudson Nagy and Steve DeLeeuw got into each other on the back stretch on lap seven bringing out a caution as the cars continued the hard door to door battles throughout the pack. Aicken and Corcoran were mixing it up down the back  stretch and Corcoran got squirrely narrowly avoiding several cars in a wild spin. With Corcoran out of the picture that moved Clark Hartman to second place and he battled Aiken tooth and nail for several laps as the race neared completion. Aiken held off Hartman for the feature victory.
Thunder Cars were up next. Mike Gilmour and Bobby Mercer were up front for this one. Gilmour led early but the 89 of Brad Collison got by down the back stretch on lap three to take the lead. The battle for second was fierce has Shawn Arnott and Mark Burbridge with plenty of beating and banging. Burbridge got by and had his sights on Collison next. Burbridge closed the gap and eventually caught Collison and with some crafty driving and a little bump and run got by to take the lead. Collison tried hard to regain the lead with some bumping and banging of his own but Burbridge would not be caught and picked up the checkered flag.
The Pro 4 Modifieds were up for their ten lap heat race. Only six cars made the trip on this night as many of the cars traveled to Sauble to race there. The Nanticokes had this one in hand from the start. They broke away from the rest of the pack as Dan led Brian. Two cars retired with issues, Aaron Turkey slowed on lap two and Linc Erison got the black flag for smoking on lap five. The lead was safe for the Nanticokes as Dan continued his hot streak of late picking up another checkered flag.
The Ontario Pro Challenge were up for the first two of four ten lap heat races. The series had many fans and groups in attendance at the track as well tonight. A few drivers were also returning to the series after some time away. Larry Majuery and Malcolm McMaster and Rick Seeley making his second appearance of the year. The first heat of eight cars was led by Tim Shanahan and Shawn Stones. Shanahan led the first two laps but the 33 of Brian Stevanus executed a nice bump and run on lap three to inherit the lead. Ken Lillycrop followed Stevanus and the two broke away building an almost half track lead on the remainder of the pack. Stevanus ran away and picked up the checkered flag. Race two saw Dale Wilson and Patrick Freel up front. Some three wide action early as a familiar face took the lead with Tim Norris getting by Wilson and Mike Westwood. Westwood spun out of two on lap four bringing out a caution. Norris would battle Dennis Thomson for the remainder of the race with Norris picking up another Flamboro checkered flag.
The Lucas Oil Can Am Midgets hit the track for their two heat races. Adrian Stahle and Dave Hickson were up front. Stahle started to increase his lead on the pack along with the 94 of Ryan Fraser. Fraser did his best to close the gap and by the last lap had come pretty close but wasn’t able to over take Stahle and he took the checkered flag. Lucas Smith and Barry Dunn were on the pole for the second heat. Tyler Turnbull experienced some problems off the start and wasn’t able to take the green. Smith along with Darren McLennan broke way from the pack. On lap four McLennan got by Smith as the two went through 3 and 4. That’s the way it stayed as the Midgets took the checkers.
After the Spectator Drags (King of the Hill) at Intermission we got right into round two with the Ontario Pro Challenge up first with heats 3 and 4. Shawn Stones and Peter Hattin sat up front as the cars took green. The two pole sitters started to break away and put some space between them and the rest of the field. The brothers Batty battled each other hard for third and fourth. Stones held onto the lead and picked up his first ever checkered flag. Race number four some some more exciting three wide action as Patrick Freel, Mike Westwood and Tim Norris battled for the first three laps. Norris and Thomson eventually ended up one two again as announcer Jon Houghton said, the two had some bumper magic going on as the battled each other hard late in the race. Norris made it two for two on the night picking up another checkered flag.
The Can Am Midgets would run and eight lap B Main to set the final positions for the Main feature. Dave Hickson and Todd Cresswell sat up front for the quick little race. Tyler Turnbull was still experiencing some mechanical issues and went off on lap one.Hickson, Cresswell and Rob Neely got off to a good start and battled early. Cresswell got by Hickson on lap three as the two would head into turns 3-4. The next lap Neely pulled the same move on Hickson to take over second and just barely two minutes of racing and it was over that quick with Cresswell picking up the win.
The Mini Stocks hit the track for their second feature with Rick Robinson and Blair Wickett sitting on the pole. Early on Chad Corcoran, Shawn Taylor and Blair Wickett broke away. Taylor seemed to have his issues from last week ironed out but early on he slowed don the front stretch and retired to the pits leaving Corcoran and Wickett to do battle. Wickett led the first six laps but Corcoran got by, took the lead and held it until the end to pick up the feature win.
Mike Gilmour and Justin Collson were up front for the second Thunder Car feature on the night. Lots of banging and crashing in this one. Shawn Arnott and Justin Collison got mixed up early on and Arnott would eventually take the lead followed by Mark Burbridge. The two broke away and ran away as Arnot took the checkered flag.
The Pro 4 Modifieds hit the track for their feature with Dan Petit and Brian Nanticoke up front. Nanticoke led lap one after a close run out of four down the front stretch. Nanticoke would battle with Mark Millard and Dan Nanticoke the rest of the way as Brian held on for the feature win.
The Ontario Pro Challenge were up next for their 30 lap main event. Tim Shanahan and Shawn Stones started out front and Stones took the lead early. Shanahan spun early after falling to fifth bringing out the caution. A few laps later another caution as Patrick Freel and Mike Westwood got involved and spun in turns 1-2 bringing out yet another caution. Larry Majuery wasn’t able to avoid and hit a stopped car and was taken off on the flat bed. On the restart the master of Flamboro, Tim Norris took the lead from Stones. By lap ten the 88 of Norris was gone, out for a drive on his own. Dennis Thomson was sitting in second and Dale Wilson and Ken Lillycrop were battling hard just after that. Wilson eventually got by Lillycrop to take over third. As the laps would wind down, Thomson was gaining on Norris but was unable to catch him and Norris made it three for three on the night.
The final race of the evening was the Can Am Midget feature event. Adrian Stahle and Lucas Smith were on the pole. As the field readied for green, the Can Am Midgets did their customary four wide salute to the fans, always a hit as everyone stands and waves. An early caution as the 62 car of Brian Pescetti went around in three bringing out the caution. Stahle was leading but Ryan Fraser wasn’t backing down and made Stahle fight for the lead. Smith and Darren McLennan were battling for second and third while Stahle continued to dominate, hold the lead and started to put some space between him and Smith. As the race ended, Stahle took the checkered flag picking up and well deserved win in memory of his mom. Great show Adrian! Watch the video here.

2015’s ‘Hot August Night’ Series at Peterborough Speedway is Ready to Roll

2015’s ‘Hot August Night’ Series at Peterborough Speedway is Ready to Roll

From the first Great Canadian RV green flag of the season, every driver in Peterborough Speedway’s 5 regular divisions had their sights set on just one goal. To score enough points to clinch the track championship. With the Saturday, July 25th show falling victim to Mother Nature, a handful of events this month will pave the way to the Championship Clash – Saturday, September 5th – at Canada’s Toughest 3rd of a Mile Paved Oval.

Saturday, August 1st the Battlefield Equipment Rental 4Fun and Mini Stock teams will be the first of the home track classes to pocket points in this year’s Hot August Night Series of action at the tight, tricky bullring on Mount Pleasant Road, west of the Liftlock City. The same event will also play host to the Touring Chase for the Colours Pole Qualifier, as a trio of OSCAAR divisions – the Super Late Models, Modifieds and Midgets – will fight for prime starting spots at the 23rd Annual Autumn Colours Classic. Track owner and promoter J.P. Josiasse says it’s an exciting time of year for every driver who rolls through the pit gates.

“They will all be bringing their ‘A’ games and searching for any possible advantage,” said Josiasse. “Every position on the racetrack pays points toward the season’s title. Just look at last year, where the final Thunder Car finishing order was decided by a single point and you’ll know how important it is to get everything you can from your equipment.”

Looking ahead on the schedule finds the Lucas Oil Sportsman Cup Series 100 lapper, along with the Battlefield Equipment Rental 4Fun, Mini Stock and Paul Davis Systems Thunder Car teams – Saturday, August 8th. Although not on the original schedule, an asphalt/dirt vintage modified exhibition event has also been added to the August 8th event.

Saturday, August 15th is the year’s final Toonie Spectator Grandstand Admission/Fan Appreciation Night with 4Fun, Mini Stock, Earl Ireland Late Model, INEX Ontario Legend and Ontario Modifieds Racing Series action. For each of the first 2 events this month, pit gates will open at 2:00 with racing at 6:00. On Fan Appreciation Night, racing starts at 5:00.

Brennan Didero Wins Back To Back Lucas Oil Sportsman Features At Flamboro Speedway

Brennan Didero Wins Back To Back Lucas Oil Sportsman Features At Flamboro Speedway

By Randy Spencer – The final one hundred lap race at Bennett Chevrolet Flamboro Speedway in 2015 turned out to be one crazy affair here Saturday night. The Lucas Oil Sportsman series put on another great show, the second one in two weeks and a familiar face once again put himself in victory lane.
Time trials got under way at 530pm. Fourteen cars were ready to try and break the LOSC track record of 15.369 put down by Shawn McGlynn a couple years back. But the hot and humid weather would likely prevent that record from falling. And indeed when all was said and done the record wasn’t in much trouble as the fast time on the night went once again to McGlynn, this time however about a full second off the record time. Fast time on the night was 16.348.
Feature racing got underway at 630pm with the first of two Pure Stock main events. Peter Becker and Wayde Thorne were on the pole and Becker as usual got off to a quick start and took the lead off the first lap. A caution on lap 5 as Caroline Kelly’s car came to a stop close to the wall in turn four. Ten laps in the 17 of Blair Mayhew and 10 of Lofton Schutts got involved heading into turn three. Mayhew who was debuting a new car on the night after a hard hit to the other car last time out, took a hard hit backwards and up onto the wall. The rear bumper came off and the force of the crash affected the transmission and the car would not go in reverse. He went to the pits for repairs and was able to return before the end of the race. He was pretty sore after the race. Up front Peter Becker continued to lead but he was challenged through out by Josh Shantz, making a rare appearance back in the Pure Stock, over from the dirt at Ohsweken. As the checkers flew it was Becker followed by Shantz and Michael Kenny.
Chad Ditner and Dave Goodacre led the Mini Stocks to green in their first feature of the night. Early on a flat on the 92 of A.J. Miller on lap three brought the first caution. Clark Hartman who had been running very well of late started third and took the lead and built it to a ten car lead early on. Chad Ditner and Scott Mast raced hard behind making the real battle for second and third. Shawn Taylor’s car started to slow after running close to the front and a suspected mass airflow switch was the culprit. Hartman continued to battle is way through lapped traffic and as the race came to an end it was Hartman followed by Ditner and Mast.
Seven Thunder Cars took green in their first feature of the night. Justin Collison, still showing he’s coming along strong in his rookie season led the first six laps. But right their on his back bumper was the Ice Man, dad Brad Collison in the 89. My first thought was maybe dad would block for son to get him that first checkered flag but in true Collison fashion, he raced hard and wasn’t about to hand over the victory that easy. Brad got by Justin and managed to build up a half track lead when the checkered flag fell on this race.
The Pro 4 Modifieds had two ten lap heat races to wrap up round one of qualifying. Dan Petit and Linc Ersion led the field to green. Early on you could have thrown a blanket over the first four cars as Petit, Josh Lassaline, Dan Nanticoke and Erison battled hard. Coming out of four on lap six, Lassaline took the lead followed closely by Nanticoke. The two battled hard the last couple of laps and Lassaline held off a hard charge by Nanticoke for the victory.
Race two saw a couple of drivers familiar with the track but not recently. Ryan Hunsinger was in the 8 for Craig Shaver and the 36 of Gary Elliott was out with his Modified. Gear box problems gave the veteran Elliott fits all night however. Hunsinger got out to a big lead early and his only real challenge came from Tom Houghton in the 33. A few more laps Houghton, a stand out at Full Throttle Motor Speedway, may have made it close but at the checkers it was Hunsinger leading flag to flag for the victory.
Round two of features saw Roger Lessard and Lofton Schutts lead 20 Pure Stocks to green. The field of cars steadily increases every week and with that many cars, racing can get pretty wild. Three wide and three deep off the start. Andy Wheller was off like a shot followed by Shantz. Four wide action on lap three as the craziness continued. As the lead cars headed out of four and down the straight away on lap 13, the 59 of Peter Becker and 70 of Josh Shantz were beating and banging on each other and neither would give an inch. Both cars were headed for the infield with Becker going around and had to head to the pits with a flat. A couple more cautions as the cars continued to battle hard and fast for position. Shantz and Wheller were hard at it battling door to door and bumper to bumper. It appeared that Shantz was better in the corners while the veteran Wheller had it on the straights. As the cars came down to take the checkered flag Wheller held off Shantz for the win.
The second Mini Stock feature saw Shawn Taylor and Hudson Nagy up front. Taylor was hoping they had figured out the gremlins in that car after the first race. The car was great off the start and shot out to the lead but the 71 of Russ Aicken and 03 of Jake Gilbert got tangled down the back stretch and brought out the caution. On the restart the story was different as the 76 slowed up once again and eventually retired to the pits. Nagy was the new leader followed by Scott Mast, Clark Hartman and Chad Ditner. Mast made a couple attempts to take the lead and almost took it from Nagy. A couple laps later Mast slowed heading into turn three with a flat tire, went high and the field went past as he made his way to the pits. Nagy continued to lead and now had the crafty veteran Clark Hartman on his tail. Hartman made numerous attempts to pass Nagy but fell short. On lap 13 down the front stretch Hartman once again almost had him but to no avail. Three laps later heading into turn three, the scatter shield came off Nagy’s car and he cut a tire as he ran over it allowing Harman to get by and take the lead. Ditner and Aicken were close behind. Hartman held off the field and made a clean sweep in Mini Stock feature wins on the night.
The Thunder Cars were next and Jeff Bean and Shawn Arnott were up front. The 7 of Bobby Mercer retired to the pits on lap four with transmission problems he had been experiencing all night. With just five cars left to battle you might think it would be a ho hum race but Collison and Arnott made it anything but. The two battled back and forth making contact, banging bumpers and plenty of great side by side action. Collison got by Arnott on lap 7 going down the back stretch and held off the hard charger out of New Hamburg and Collison too made it a clean sweep on the night.
The final feature race before the 100 lap man event was for the Pro 4 Modifieds. Thirteen cars took the green, this time led by Dan Petit and Mark Lucas. Gary Elliott still experiencing those gear box issues retired to the pits on lap one. Thee wide action on lap five showed these guys meant business, Dan Nanticoke was running real well and shot out to the lead early. As the race approached half way, Nantiokce had a half track lead. A caution on lap 10 as the 8 of Hunsinger spun down the back chute, sliding back up into traffic narrowly averting a crash. That tightened the field and Nanticoke lined up along side Tom Houghton. But a good restart by Nanticoke kept him out front. The 24 of Josh Lassaline got high out of four a couple laps later and showed some fancy driving to hold onto to third place and as the cars took the checkers it was Nanticoke followed by Houghton and Lassaline.
Prior to the start of the race, the fast five draw took place for the Lucas Oil Sportsman Cup drivers to set the starting five for the feature. After qualifying the top five looked like this, Shawn McGlynn, Chad McGlynn, Dave Connelly, Tim Tolton and Alvin McNichol. After the fast five draw where each driver was paired with a youngster from the crowd, the order changed to McNichol with his first pole, Chad McGlynn, Shawn McGlynn, Connelly and Tolton. Chad McGlynn got out to an early lead leading lap one. He continued out front followed closely by brother Shawn and McNichol. By lap 14 they had a half track lead on the next pack of cars and lap traffic was now becoming an issue. The 6 of Jeremy Coulter brought out the first caution on lap 23  with a spin in turn three bringing the pack back to even. This time however the cars kept it close with Chad still in the lead. Brother Shawn was second with McNichol and Brennan Didero in fourth. Didero who won last time out here two weeks ago, showed his experience at this track and why he has picked up the name Mr. Highside. Didero has mastered the outside lane and ran it well once again tonight. Chad led brother Shawn as the race approached half way. Lapped traffic caused Shawn some problems and before he knew it, he was caught on the outside and was quickly shuttled back to fifth spot. At the half way Dave Connelly took over the lead followed by Didero and McNichol. Another spin by Coulter on lap 65 once again tightened the field. Connelly led and Didero was once again battling Shawn McGlynn. Several cautions between laps 70 and 76 slowed the action down. On the restart on lap 77, all hell broke loose and all but three cars were involved in a major wreck. A hurried restart or fluid on the track may have been contributing factors as contact was made with the 81 of Shawn McGlynn sending him spinning out and collecting number of the contending cars including Didero, Connelly, Cathcart, Wood, and McNichol.  McNichol and Cathcart were unable to continue and a promising start for McNichol was all for not. The only cars to make it through were Brennan Didero, Mike Nelson and Kevin Trevellin. However Didero had a flat and had to go pit-side and rejoin the pack at the rear. Chad McGlynn also had to retire for the evening when his rear end seized up. The new leader now was Mike Nelson. Nelson had a horseshoe perhaps as he was lapped several times but regained his position each time with the lucky dog. The restart went off well and Didero and McGlynn made their way to the front. Josh Wood drove into the 8 of Adam Martin sending him spinning bringing out another caution with ten to go. Some hard nosed battles as the leaders jockeyed for position. Didero continued to hold off Shawn McGlynn and the two continued to lap 99 when Bob Merrifield and Mike Nelson spun in one and two but the leaders took the white so that meant the yellow and checkers flew to end the race and the 24 of Brennan Didero won his second straight LOSC race at his home track and continued his points lead in the series.

More Than Air Temperature Hot At Full Throttle

More Than Air Temperature Hot At Full Throttle

Varney ON. – With Friday night racing action rained out fans and drivers were treated to some of the hottest temperatures Saturday at Full Throttle and hot temperatures mean a slick track and loads of action for fans to take in.

The night kicked off with Fun Stocks taking to the highbanks and with car counts down from their normal twenty plus the drivers that did make the trip came to race. In feature one it would be Nick Clarke from Clifford running the 25 number for Billy Lovell from Mildmay whose car developed issues and was still on the trailer taking home the checker. Second in this feature would go to #32 Ben Klages from Hanover, third #9 Sandy Eccles from Mount Forest, fourth #5 Jeramy Duguay from Hanover and in fifth #48 John Green from Drayton. Feature two would fine the drivers dealing with the evening sun rounding corner three as this feature was plagued with many cautions. In the end it would be #48 John Green making his way back to victory lane followed by #84 Nick Clarke, third #71 Justin McKague from Teeswater, fourth #34 Alex Hastie from Durham and rounding out the top five #73 Sherri McIntyre from Bayfield.

Street Stock action from this past weekend will mean a little more time spent this week replacing door panels as fans were treated to some closer than normal racing action. In feature one it would be #20 Ryan Edwards-Kiss from Londesboro getting out in front early and putting some distance between him and the rest of the field. Second would go to #35 Mike Thebeau from Mitchell, third #6 Rob Wark from Chesley, fourth #3 Mark King from Hillsburgh and fifth #1 Bob Parsons from Princeton. In feature two it would be #35 Mike Thebeau jumping to the early lead but as laps would whined down #20 Ryan Edwards-Kiss would make his way to the back bumper of Thebeau but be unable to find a way around him settling for second. Third would go to #6 Rob Wark, fourth #3 Mark King and rounding out the top five #1 Bob Parsons.

In Outlaw Late Model action it would again be #11 Cole Weber from New Hamburg taking both features but it would take a late race caution in feature two to allow that to happen. With only two laps to go the last thing #23 Paul Millagan from Innisfill wanted to see was the caution to come out but it did tighten up the field and giving the #11 of Weber the high side on the restart. They battled side by side from the drop of the green and by corner three Weber was ahead by just enough to pull down in front of Millagan taking the low line away and take it to the checkers. This race also saw its worst accident after the checker was in the air. Racing for third #00 Trevor Thompson from Elmira would get loose coming out of corner four making it across the line but coming to rest nose to the wall just past the finish line blocking the high side of the track. As #40 Mark Dixon from Durham and #77 Tim Gordon from Cambridge came around the corner battling to the finish, a quick move to the left by #77 Gordon saved a direct hit but the backend of his car would kick out just enough to hit Thompsons car sending them both to the shop this week for some major repairs. In feature one second would go to #40 Mark Dixon, third #77 Tim Gordon, fourth #23 Paul Millagan and fifth #00 Trevor Thompson.

Wrapping up the night where the Crazy Trains with another seven sets hitting the highbanks in each feature. Feature one it would be Texas Traincar Massacre from Mount Forest bring home the checker in front of Crazy Till We Die from Cambridge and 454 Go Baby Go from Owen Sound. In feature two it as Crazy Till We Die, Rockford Rednecks and Texas Traincar Massacre.

Doubleheader racing action continues this coming weekend at Full Throttle 5 KM’s south of Durham on Highway 6. Friday night at 7:30 PM it’s Mini Trucks, Mini Stocks, Street Stocks, Outlaw Late Models and Crazy Trains. Then we are right back at it Saturday at 5 PM for the Lucas Oil Sportsman Cup Series “Runalung.ca 100” along with an on track meet and greet with the drivers before their big race. Also racing will be Fun Stocks, Mini Stocks, Super Trucks and Street Stocks and all for the regular grandstand admission of just $13.00 ages 11 and up and just $2.00 ages 10 and under.

Sizzling Summer Night Heats Up the Action at Peterborough Speedway

Sizzling Summer Night Heats Up the Action at Peterborough Speedway

By Jim Clarke, Clarke Motorsports Communications/First Draft Media

As the mercury continued to climb, so did the level of racing excitement as the APC Pro Late Model Series joined the Battlefield Equipment Rental 4Fun, Paul Davis Systems Thunder Car and OSCAAR Midget divisions – Saturday, July 18th – at Peterborough Speedway.

IMG_2719Feature race action got underway with a 20 lap tilt for the Battlefield Equipment Rental 4Fun teams, with Keith Parkes and Matthew Vanderbelt on the front row. Vanderbelt – who has endured some tough luck after a win earlier in the year – took control, but had Ryan Oosterholt on his back bumper. Just short of halfway, the leaders started to work through lapped traffic but the Farm Bro teammates showed their strength. With a dozen circuits complete, several cars came together in the first and second turns and the yellow flag flew for debris. Vanderbelt watched the fight for position take place in his rear-view mirror on his way to visiting Dart Heating and Air Conditioning Victory Lane. Ray Schroer, Sean Kennedy, Jeremy Kelly and Oosterholt completing the top 5.

IMG_2722OSCAAR Midget division pilots took the Great Canadian RV green flag with Brian Woodland and Mike McLaughlin leading the way. The 25 lapper had barely taken the green flag when the red was displayed for a multi-car wreck on the backstretch. Even though 2 cars flipped, all drivers were unhurt. Jody Bound took the top spot on the restart, with Jessica James in the runner-up position. The leaders caught the tail-end of the field with 7 laps on the scoreboard. James started to fight for the lead at halfway, as the yellow flag flew for debris. She took the lead when the green flag flew again, but a late race caution may have been her undoing as the #2 machine headed pit-side before the field came back up to speed. Jamie Bound claimed the main event over Paul Draganac, Rob McColl, Jody Bound and Cory Whittam.

IMG_2723Defending track champion Anthony DiBello and Steve Mayhew paced the pack to the stripe for the 20 lap Paul Davis Systems Thunder Car feature. The pair ran nose to tail for nearly the entire race distance, with Howie Crowe on their back bumpers. A late race yellow bunched the field and created the need for a green, white checkered finish but it didn’t stop DiBello from taking another feature event win. Crowe, Dave Doucette, Bailey Jacobs and Rob Richards completed the fast 5.

The night’s final feature event was the much anticipated 100 lap Peterborough Speedway debut for the APC Pro Late Model Series, with Josh Stade and Shawn Chenoweth on the front row. Unofficially, the top 5 finishers were Chenoweth, Dale Shaw, Dan McHattie, Linc Brown and J.R. Fitzpatrick. See www.apcracingseries.com for the full event report.

Qualifying heats earlier in the evening went to Battlefield Equipment Rental 4Fun drivers Ray Schroer, last week’s feature winner Sean Kennedy, Tiffany Vandebelt and Cody Fenton. Defending track champion Anthony DiBello, Rob Richards, rookie of the year hopeful Bailey Jacobs and Steve Mayhew took the Paul Davis Systems Thunder Car preliminary rounds. Jamie Bound and Jessica James each scored a pair of OSCAAR Midget heat races. Rob Ross took the division’s ‘B’ main last chance qualifier.

Bullring bullet points: Drew Styler of Bracebridge, Ontario took home nearly $1100.00 in the night’s 50/50 draw…Dave Doucette made his first Peterborough Speedway start of the season. Adam Misener, who ran the 2014 Autumn Colours Classic made the tow from North Bay, Ontario but his effort was sidelined by mechanical issues without taking a green flag.

Action returns to Canada’s Toughest 3rd of a Mile Paved Oval Saturday, July 25th when Country 105 presents the Mid-Summer Bash with the Renegade Truck, Paul Davis Systems Thunder Car, Earl Ireland Auto Sales Late Model and Ontario Modifieds Racing Series divisions and a 100 lap endurance event. Pit gates open at 3:00, with the spectator grandstand unlocked at 5:00 and the first green flag at 6:00.

APC Pro Late Models to Make Their First Peterborough Speedway Start this Weekend

APC Pro Late Models to Make Their First Peterborough Speedway Start this Weekend

Since the first green flag on the 23rd of May, the provincial motorsports community has been buzzing about the inaugural season for the APC Pro Late Model tour. Saturday, July 18th, fans at Canada’s Toughest 3rd of a Mile Paved Oval get to see what all the excitement is about when the series makes its Peterborough Speedway debut.

With car counts in the upper 20’s and lower 30’s at each event, just earning a ticket to the dance has become one of the biggest obstacles for drivers. Fans can expect some of the familiar names including hometown favorites and past Autumn Colours Classic champions Dan McHattie and Chris Mitchell in attendance. Dwayne Baker, Dale Shaw, Jesse Kennedy and Shawn Chenoweth have won the first 4 races on the tour. Track owner and promoter J.P. Josiasse says crowds will be excited to see some of the biggest short-track racing names in the province perform on the tight, tricky bullring on Mount Pleasant Road, west of the Liftlock City.

“It’ll be an exciting show,” said Josiasse. “I just might be tempted to dust-off my gear and get out there myself. Many of these drivers run here at Autumn Colours so they’re familiar with the track. Finding a set-up that’ll work for a 100 lap main event could be a challenge, but that will add to the entertainment factor of the show.”

In addition to the APC Pro Late Model tour stop – which also includes time trials – the Saturday, July 18th event at Peterborough Speedway will also include the Battlefield Equipment Rental 4Fun, Paul Davis Systems Thunder Car and OSCAAR Midget divisions, with kid’s bike races at intermission. Pit gates open at 2:00, with the spectator grandstands unlocked at 4:00 and racing getting underway at 6:00.

Looking ahead on the schedule, Country 105 presents the Mid-Summer Bash with Renegade Truck, Paul Davis Systems Thunder Car, Earl Ireland Auto Sales Late Model and Ontario Modifieds Racing Series action, with a 100 endurance event Saturday, July 25th. Saturday, August 1st is the Chase for the Colours Touring Division Pole Qualifier, with the OSCAAR Super Late Models, Modifieds and Midgets – along with the Battlefield Equipment Rental 4Fun and Mini Stock classes.

Fans can always find the latest news at www.peterboroughspeedway.com by liking the track’s page at www.facebook.com or following it on Twitter. You can also download the free Peterborough Speedway app on your Smartphone.

Becker, Marshall And Pearsall Big Winners At Flamboro Speedway

Becker, Marshall And Pearsall Big Winners At Flamboro Speedway

By Randy Spencer – One of the hottest nights of the summer greeted a large crowd at the half way point of the race season at Bennett Chevrolet Flamboro Speedway. The Lucas Oil Canadian Vintage Modifieds were back along with the Pro Late Models, Mini Stocks, Pure Stocks and the Pro 4 Modifieds.
Racing got under way at 7pm with the Pure Stocks up first. Matt Young and Peter Becker were on the pole. Young who rolled his car last week had too much damage to repair so had a new car put together within twenty four hours and was back out tonight. Becker as he does on most nights, got out to a quick start. Young would stay close. Andy Wheller started seventh in the field but like Becker knows how to find the front fast. As the race wore on Becker built a nice lead while Wheller found his way up to second. Young had a good race and finished third.
Next up was the first Mini Stock feature. Stepheny Dean and Clark Hartman started up front for this one. Hartman got out to the lead off the green followed by Gillian Hils and Russ Aicken. The three started to put distance between themselves and the rest of the pack. As the race wore on Aicken began to gain some on Hartman and lapped traffic got the 71 within a few car lengths of the leader but Hartman was able to hold on for the win.
Sixteen Late Models were on hand for the first feature with Jeff Ruddy and Steve Adams led the field to green. Ruddy spun to the infield early on lap one down the back stretch. David Elliott and Brad Corcoran were now up front and they would wage a fierce battle for the entire thirty laps. Corcoran made life difficult for Elliott getting into him a few times just to let him know he had company. But when all was said and done Elliott was able to hold Cocoran of to pick up the win.
The Pro 4 Modifieds had a ten lap heat up next. Brian Nanticoke and Bill Pearsall battled early with Nanticoke leading the first couple of laps. Pearsall got by on lap three and put some distance on the field in picking up the ten lap win.
The Canadian Vintage Modifieds were up next for their two eight lap heat races. Rick Schurr and Rick Jones were on the pole for race one. Schurr got out to a lead early but got high going into four on lap three and that allowed Ben Charbonneau and Jason Keen to slip by. The two waged a nice battle for the rest of the race with Charbonneau coming out victorious. Race number two saw Cassidy March and T.J. Marshall on the pole. Point leader Steve Trendell made his way to Marshall’s back bumper and stayed there but was unable to get by and the win went to Marshall.
Intermission saw a great exhibition put on by the W.R.K.C. (Waterloo Regional Kart Club), with many of the karts on hand. Gary Colling introduced each driver and they raced a great race to impress the fans. Awesome show!
The Pure Stocks led off round two with Blair Mayhew and Sam Heibein out front. Mayhew retired to the pits with engine trouble. Peter Becker and Michael Kenny were racing each other hard. On lap seven, Dave Larkin and Matt Young got involved in turn four bringing out the caution. Young’s luck has been bad the past few weeks. Becker continued to lead and Andy Wheller bot by Kenny to take over second. At the finish it was Becker followed by Wheller and Kenny.
Jake Gilbert and Chad Ditner were on the pole for the second Mini Stock feature. The cars went three wide in turn 3-4 on lap one. On lap five, the 76 of Shawn Taylor was pushed ahead by the 75 of Scott Mast and he took the lead from Gilbert. More three wide action as the racing got exciting. Taylor took off and raced out front the rest of the way to pick up the first feature win of his Mini Stock career after winning the championship in the Pure Stocks last year.
Steve Adams and Kevin Albers led the Late Models to green in their second 30 lap feature event. Jeff Ruddy started third in the field and got out to the lead. He was racing a nice race but contact with Rick Burbridge on lap seven in turn two sent him spinning to the infield. On lap 21, Shawn Chenoweth got by the leader Brad Corcoran to take over the lead. David Elliott was battling for a top three spot but on lap 28 he spun to the infield bringing out the caution. On the restart Chenoweth got  good start but in an instant Corcoran got by and took the lead and held off Chenoweth to pick up the win.
Dan Nanticoke and Bill Pearsall led the Pro 4 Mods to green in their 15 lap feature. Pearsall got out to a good lead  and began to run away. As the laps ticked down however, Nanticoke made a race of it and caught Pearsall but just couldn’t get by giving the win to the 38 of Pearsall.
The last race of the night was for the Canadian Vintage Modifieds. Rick Schurr and Cassidy March were on the point. March led lap one but T.J. Marshall, who started fourth, got by and took the lead. Points leader Steve Trendell was second but last year’s champ Jason Keen got passed and moved into second. Nobody had enough to get by Marshall however and as the checkers flew it was Marshall with his first win of the season followed by Keen and Trendell.
That brought to a close another exciting night of racing at Bennett Chevrolet Flamboro Speedway. Please make plans to join us next week, July 18th. Racing gets under way at 630pm as the Lucas Oil Sportsman Cup series returns for a 100 lap feature event. The Grisdale Late Models are on hand and are also joined by the Ray’s Auto Centre & Towing Thunder Cars, Klotz Auto Repair & Engine Machine Shop Mini Stocks, the Pure Stocks and the BOMB Energy Drink Pro 4 Modifieds.

Trains and Fun Stocks Highlight Action

Trains and Fun Stocks Highlight Action

Varney ON – Fans were treated once again to another great Friday night under the lights at Full Throttle Motor Speedway this past week. Starting off the action was the Mini Truck class with #88 Bubba Brown from London managing to take both features this night over the #7 this week piloted by Gord Bennett. This week also saw two rookies in the field with third in both races going to #67 Adrien Petersen from Saint-Georges Quebec and rounding out the field driving the #1 68 year old Denny Snider of Durham.

Street Stocks continue to delight fans with some of the best racing action to be found anywhere in a class forgotten by all other tracks in the province. In feature one it would be #20 Ryan Edwards-Kiss from Londesboro making the most of his opportunities to get around the front runners and bring home another checker flag. Second would go to #01 Travis Farrow from Holstein, third #3 Mark King from Hillsburgh, fourth #6 Rob Wark and rounding out the top five #5 Dave Grey Jr from Hanover. In feature two second place runner up from feature one #01 Travis Farrow would get out front early and stay there all race. Second this time would be #35 Mike Thebeau from Mitchell, third #6 Rob Wark, fourth #20 Ryan Edwards-Kiss and fifth #3 Mark King.

The Outlaw Late Model class this past week suffered from attendance issues but the drivers that did make the trip to the highbanks came to race. Both features this night would go to #11 Cole Weber from New Hamburg as he was able to put room between himself and the rest of the field. Second in feature one would go to #40 Mark Dixon from Durham and third #00 Trevor Thompson from Elmira. In feature two #00 Trevor Thompson and #40 Mark Dixon would trade spots.

The Crazy Train class this past week came to put on a show for the fans and that is what they did bring a season high eight sets to the highbanks. In feature one it would be #23 Texas Traincar Massacre at the line edging out #95 454 Go Baby Go, with #69 Crazy Till We Die in third. Feature two would see more crazy action this time with the checker going to #69 Crazy Till We Die, second The Dragon Express, and for third #23 Texas Traincar Massacre.

In Fun Stock action it was Clarke Racing from Mount Forest getting two different cars into the winner circle this night. In feature one it was #84 Andrea Parsons from Clifford picking up where she left off last week taking the checker and this time she didn’t have to share it but her closest competitor was again #25 Billy Lovell from Mildmay. Third in this feature would go to #21 Leandra Urbanek from Holyrood with her best finish in her young driving career. Fourth went to #73 Sherri McIntyre from Bayfield and rounding out the top five #5 Jeramy Duguay from Hanover. Feature two would see #0 Nick Clarke from Clifford make his return to victory lane as he edged #34 Alex Hastie from Durham to the line. Third would go to #71 Justin McKague from Teeswater, fourth #14 Luke Bos from Conn and fifth #48 John Green from Drayton.

Next action at the highbanks just south of Durham is a double header weekend kicking off this Friday July 17th at 7:30PM with Mid Season Championships for Jr Late Models, Fun Stocks, Super Trucks, Mini Stocks and Winged Modifieds. Then things heat up again with action on Saturday July 18th at 5:00PM with Fun Stocks, Street Stocks, Winged Modifieds, Outlaw Late Models and Crazy Trains rounding out the weekend.
