Get Ready For A Hot August Night At Peterborough Speedway

Get Ready For A Hot August Night At Peterborough Speedway

If you’re looking for some action to pack into the middle of your Civic Holiday Weekend, head for Canada’s Toughest 3rd of a Mile Paved Oval Saturday August 2nd. They’ll give you all the action you can handle.

The headline attraction for the first of 5 Hot August Saturday Nights is the Touring Chase for the Colours pole qualifying event – presented by Lucas Oil Products – with OSCAAR Outlaw Super Late Model and OSCAAR Modifieds. Also on the bill will be the Battlefield Equipment Rental 4Fun, Peterborough Hyundai Mini Stock and Parry Spring Service Renegade Truck divisions. To top it all off, the 4Fun and Mini Stock teams will run double features and the evening will include a pre-race corn roast. Peterborough Speedway owner/promoter says it’s a fantastic way to kick off the final month of the racing season.

“It hardly seems possible, but we’re rolling right along,” said Josiasse. “2014 has been an amazing season, with strong competition since the first green flag on opening night. From time to time, you’ll see a couple of different drivers hold an advantage in a particular division, but things have been pretty even right across the board and I don’t think it would shock anyone to see the point titles in each class decided at the Championship Clash Saturday, August 30th.”

His 3 main event wins have Ryan Kimball sitting at the top of the Earl Ireland Auto Sales Late Model standings. Also scoring a hat-trick when it comes to feature races has Anthony DiBello leading the Paul Davis Systems Thunder Car points, while Jack Dallin, Tyler Junkin and Willow Barberstock share the same honour in the Parry Spring Service Renegade Truck, Peterborough Hyundai Mini Stock and Battlefield Equipment Rental 4Fun divisions respectively.

Fans and competitors are reminded to double-check the scheduled start times for the Saturday, August 2nd Touring Chase for the Colours pole qualifying event. Pit gates will open at 2:00, with the spectator areas unlocked at 4:00. Racing begins at 6:00. Looking ahead on the schedule to Saturday, August 9th when the tight, tricky bullring on Mount Pleasant Road, west of the Liftlock City will feature the 100 lap Lucas Oil Sportsman Cup Series event – presented by Attersley Tire. Action will also include the Battlefield Equipment Rental 4Fun, Peterborough Hyundai Mini Stock, Paul Davis Systems Thunder Car divisions, with the always popular Hurricane Midgets and King of the Hill.

Dale Shaw Picks Up Win in APC 100 At Flamboro Speedway

Dale Shaw Picks Up Win in APC 100 At Flamboro Speedway

By Randy Spencer - Round Four of the APC Six-Pack Challenge for Flamboro/Delaware Late Models was the main event this past Saturday at Bennett Chevrolet Flamboro Speedway.

Rain delayed the start of racing action but 17 eager Late Model drivers were raring and ready to go. The Thunder Cars had the night off after completing in the fourth round of their APC Six-Pack Challenge last night at Delaware Speedway. In their place, the Lucas Oil Can Am Midgets were on hand and were joined by the Ponderosa Nature Resort Pure Stocks, the Klotz Auto Repair & Engine Machine Shop Mini Stocks and the Ponderosa Nature Resort Pro Four Modifieds.

The afternoon got underway with Time Trials for the Late Models. Veteran Gary Elliott led off with a time of 16.678. Six drivers later, Flamboro’s Dale Shaw set the fast time with a 15.611. Jamie Cox of Delaware Speedway would better that time with a 15.573 and would manage to hold on to that time and be the fast car on the night.

The Pure Stocks were up first for their heat race and was a barn burner from the drop of the green flag. Andy Wheller and Gillian Hils battled bumper to bumper and door to door for all ten laps. They would exchange the lead several times and were never more that a car length behind the other. As the checkered flag flew, Hils edged Wheller by a half car length. Mini Stock heat wins went to Russ Aicken and Mark Klotz. The Pro 4 Modified heat win went to veteran Bill Pearsall. The Can Am Midgets had twenty cars on hand and ran some exciting heats with wins going to Lucas Smith and Adrian Stahle. The B Feature win went to Chris Holman.

After a brief intermission, feature racing got underway with the Pure Stocks. Bill Rutherford and Andy Wheller were on the pole for this one and Wheller got out to a quick lead early. Once again, as in the heat, Gillian Hils tracked down Wheller and the two made a repeat of the race earlier in the evening. Battling once again for most of the 15 laps, neither driver was willing to give an inch. It came down to the final lap with the two drivers banging away and inching along side by side. Coming out of turn four, Hils seemed to bobble slightly and lost the momentum and Wheller managed to take the win by a car length.

Mini Stocks were up next with Jake Gilbert and Mark DaSilva on the pole. At the beginning of the night, Mike Holmes held a 24 point lead on Russ Aicken in the point standings. Aiken won his heat earlier with Holmes was second, so basically no change entering the feature. Aicken took up fifth in the starting order while Holmes, who was last weeks feature winner, started tail in 17th spot. Hudson Nagy led the first six laps but couldn’t hold off a hard charge by the veteran Aicken. The New Hamburg resident was out front with Holmes on his bumper throughout. Holmes, who travels from London every week, seemed to bide his time as he got close several times. On the last lap, entering turns 3-4, Holmes made his move and got around Aicken to take the checkered flag for yet another exciting Mini Stock feature finish. Make sure you check the website to see the up to date point standings!

The Late Models were next and they lined up on the front straight for driver introductions. A dice roll of 9 meant an inversion so that put rookie Matt Lockwood on the pole with Nick Roth along side. As the green flag flew, a spin by Al Bowman brought out a caution and complete restart. Lockwood was putting on a clinic early building a fairly big lead early and would hold it until a caution on lap 44 brought the field back to even. It was the Rookie vs Veteran as Lockwood was along side Robbie Thompson. The two battled hard and were even for several laps until they got tangled and both went around. The starter gave the #56 of Thompson the black flag so they both would head to the rear of the field. Mark Watson was the new leader and he held on for a few laps. On lap 47, current APC points leader Shawn Thompson got involved with Adam Quarrie and Doug Pokupec heading out of turn two. Dale Shaw and Matt Pritiko were battling Watson hard and as the cars reached half way, Shaw had taken over the lead followed closely by Pritiko, Watson, Jeff Ruddy and David Elliott. Shaw and Pritiko battled it out over the next thirty laps until lap 90 when a caution came out and tightened the field. Another caution one lap later when Lockwood and Pokupec got tangled. Lap 95 saw Ruddy and Robbie Thompson bring out a caution and another on the restart when Ruddy got involved with the other Thompson, Shawn…ending their night. Lap 97 saw the hood of David Elliott’s car start to flap and out came a caution. Elliott made a qucik pit stop to have it removed and he made it out for the restart. a green, white, checkered finish make it interesting as Dale Shaw held off Matt Pritiko for the checkered flag. Rick Burbridge came home third followed by Mark Watson and Nick Roth to complete the top five.

The Pro 4 Modifieds were on track for their 15 lap feature with Robert Mercer and Mike Westwood up front. Westwood got out to a big lead early and would hold it until his car retired to the pits with mechanical problems with Robert Mercer taking the lead. On lap 12, Mercer too seemed to have something go south on his car as he spun out and hit the turn one wall and his night was done. Craig Shaver and Bill Pearsall would battle for the rest of the race and Shaver, the current points leader in the Pro Four’s (Shaver 372-Pearsall 369) held off Pearsall to take the checkered flag.

The last race of the night was the 25 lap feature for the Can Am Midgets. Mack Deman, the current point leader at the start of the night was a car to watch as he had won the previous three features and four on the season. Todd Cresswell and Lucas Smith were on the pole for a field of 18 cars. The veteran Cresswell held the lead for the first 13 laps but an amazing pass by Smith heading into turns 3-4 and would build up a half straightaway lead and picked up his second feature win of the year. Deman came home third.

That brought to a close yet another exciting night of racing! Please make plans to join us this Saturday, August 2nd for another action packed and jammed packed night of racing. It’s the Annual KID’S Ride Night!!

A Moose On The Loose At Full Throttle

A Moose On The Loose At Full Throttle

Varney, On- Full Throttle Speedway had an unexpected guest for racing action Friday night in fact a whole team of them, Moose Racing from Edmonton Alberta dropped in to take part in the racing action. The Pure Stock race team is doing a tour of race tracks in Ontario and wanted to try the highbanks and fast racing action which Full Throttle is known for. In addition to taking part in the racing action they also had their car on display in front of the grandstand at intermission for kids to sign along with handing out free T-shirts to all kids in attendance.

In Pure Stock action feature one 01 Travis Farrow from Dromore took full advantage of his pole starting position. He was able to hold off all attempts from 43 Joey Schouten from Mount Forest during the first half of the race, and in the dying laps of the race it was 17 Nick Clarke from Mount Forest in his rear view mirror. At the checker it was Farrow, Clarke, Schouten with fourth going to 14 Luke Bos from Conn and rounding out the top five was 29 Rob Fountain from Edmonton Alberta. Feature two of the night saw more clean fast racing out of the Pure Stock drivers and this time it would be 17 Nick Clarke returning to his winning ways of the past. Second would go to 14 Luke Bos, third 01 Travis Farrow, fourth 43 Joey Schouten and fifth 34 Don Tremble from Durham.

Mini Stock saw an increase in car counts this week with increased payouts on the line. Fans got to see some outstanding Mini Stock action, with 3 out of the top 10 ranked drivers in the province in the line up you know it is going to be great racing action! In feature one the fans weren’t disappointed. Even though any driver in this field could take their car to victory lane the main contenders would find themselves starting mid pack. From the drop of the green 68 Brandon Crumbie from Cookstown would improve on his fifth place starting position bring along 36 Corry Young out of Owen Sound with him. Then a lap thirteen caution would set the front row for the run to the finish with 68 Brandon Crumbie on the inside and 36 Corry Young on the outside, all the rest of the field could do was watch as these two took off with Young gaining the advantage on the high side. At the finish it would be Young, Crumbie followed by 7 Paul Boyd from Harriston, fourth would go to 64 Dave Crumbie from Cookstown and rounding out the top five would be 06 Ryan Hardy from Markdale. Feature two started with a first lap stack up of cars in corner four as the third place running car 06 Ryan Hardy got into the second place car 73 Kyle Woods collecting almost the entire field. Luckily everyone only suffered cosmetic damage with the exception of 9 Tessa Cremasco from Mount Forest who had her car almost stand on it’s nose after being hit by 35 Tim Tolton. Check out the video here http://youtu.be/eP2_i8-pyy4 On the restart 51 Clark Hartman from Waterloo jumped out in front of the field and use lap traffic to his advantage as he and 36 Corry Young would drive their way through the field with 7 Paul Boyd in hot pursuit. As the white flag came out Hartman would have to use every trick in his book to hold off 36 Young as he made one last dive inside coming to the checker but it was not enough. It would be Hartman, Young, Boyd then 68 Brandon Crumbie for fourth and rounding out the top five 35 Tim Tolton from Guelph.

V8 Thunder Stock action also saw some new cars this week as they would test driver and machine running three twenty lap features. In feature one 27 Mark Fenton from Tiverton would take advantage of his pole starting position and build a good lead on the rest of the field. The main battle in this race was for the second position between 17 Tristan Gill of Waterloo and 18 Terry Pardy of Mount Forest along with 277 Ray Flynn from Clinton. In the end it would be Gill for second, Pardy for third, Flynn for fourth and rounding out the top five was 05 Steve Brook from Hillsburgh. Check out the video of this race at http://youtu.be/mcQP7nmimV0 Feature two saw fast runner Fenton on the trailer with transmission trouble dashing his hopes of being another three feature winner this season. This race was again all about starting position as pole sitter 17 Tristan Gill would take this race flag to flag in another great run. Close behind was 55 Scott Field from Hepworth who was busy working bugs out of his car which caused him an early exit from feature one. Third this time would go to 277 Ray Flynn, fourth 18 Terry Pardy with fifth going to 05 Steve Brook. In the third and final feature pole advantage did not work out for 05 Steve Brook and with a lap eight caution for a spin the field would reset with 55 Scott Field and 17 Tristan Gill on the front row and these two would battle inside and outside for the remainder of the race working through lap traffic. In the end the young gun from Waterloo just came up short to the veteran from Hepworth as it was Field, Gill followed by 18 Terry Pardy, fourth went to 277 Ray Flynn and fifth 5 Dave Grey Jr out of Hanover.

Train action this week had a first never witnessed before a tie at the finish. With it being to close to call both teams decided to have the winner decided in train stay, best burn out wins. Once it was over it was Texas Traincar Massacre from Mount Forest by a burn out over Rockford Rednecks, third was Jonathon Bates Roofing from Owen Sound and rounding out the field Here We Go from Listowel. For feature two Rockford Rednecks held nothing back as they built up a good lead on the field on way to the checker followed by Texas Traincar Massacre, third was Jonathon Bates Roofing.

Next racing action will be this Friday Aug 1st for MILITARY NIGHT with Pro Late Models, Mini Stocks, Pure Stocks for a $1000 to-win bonus if one driver can win all three features plus Crazy Trains!

Vintage Night Recap: Classic Cars Take Over Historic Half Mile

Vintage Night Recap: Classic Cars Take Over Historic Half Mile

July 25, 2014-It was a great evening of old-school competition at Delaware Speedway’s Vintage Night on Friday, sponsored by Groundmasters Landscapers, with races featuring unique Vintage race cars and 101 classic cruise cars packing the famous half-mile before the races. Adrian Donkers (#6) of Elora won the 25-lap Lucas Oil Canadian Vintage Modifieds feature and Cliff Hodgkinson (#12) won the 25-lap Four Cylinder Outlaw Modifieds feature. The night also featured twin 25-lap GAW Recycling Super Stock features with visitors from Flamboro Speedway, the first win was taken by Branden Verhoeven (#7) of Kerwood and the second by Darrell Lake (#77) of London.

Branden Verhoeven (#7) of Kerwood won the first 25-lap GAW Recycling Super Stock feature. Verhoeven started in the lead in a large field of twenty-six cars after having the fastest speed in time trials finishing with a time 20.703, a new track record for the GAW Recycling Super Stocks. He was the second last entry in time trials and beat the record set only a few minutes earlier by Gary Adriaensen (#55) of London who had run a time of 20.787. Verhoeven held the previous Super Stock track record time of 20.829 set on June 20, 2014.

Shae Gemmell (#3) of Dorchester ran most of the feature in second position right behind Verhoeven. He finished in second position despite pushing hard for first especially in the last few laps of the feature. Shawn Chenoweth (#89) of Flamboro Speedway finished in third position after passing Gary Adriaensen (#55) Belmont who had held third position for the majority of the feature, even after fending off David McCullough (#39) of Glencoe who pushed hard for third in lap fifteen and sixteen. Adriaensen placed fourth and McCullough placed fifth.

Darrell Lake (#77) of London won the second 25-lap GAW Recycling Super Stock feature. Kevin Gallant (#31) of Flamboro Speedway led the first five laps of the race but was passed by Lake who had quickly worked his way through over half of the field into lap six. Kevin Albers (#27) of Flamboro Speedway was holding second position at that point until Jordan Lawrence (#78) of London made a successful move to pass him in lap thirteen. Lawrence tried hard to get ahead of Lake, especially on the restart after a caution in lap thirteen but was not able to mount a charge. Lake finished first, Lawrence finished second, and Shae Gemmell (#3) of Dorchester finished third after an major battle for position with Albers and Kenny McNicol Jr. (#17) of Exeter.

“It feels like we finally have a car under us that is championship worthy,” Lake commented in Victory Lane. He was also grateful to Branden Verhoeven (#7) and his team who helped him with parts for a transmission leak he had been dealing with before the race.

Adrian Donkers (#6) of Elora won the Lucas Oil Canadian Vintage Modified 25-lap feature. T.J. Marshall (#15) of Rockton passed into the lead in lap two and led nine laps until him and Michael Williams (#7) of Tottenham made contact with each other and spun while racing hard for the lead. The accident ended up putting both Marshall and Williams out of the lead, allowing Donkers to become the new leader. Jason Keen (#18) of Oakville put a lot of pressure on Donkers for first position. Several restarts after cautions provided opportunities for Keen to pass but Donkers was consistently able to keep Keen behind him even as Keen ran bumper-to-bumper or side-by-side while Donkers held the lead. Keen placed second. Williams placed third after making his way through traffic and finally passing into third position in lap twenty-three.

Cliff Hodgkinson (#12) won the Four Cylinder Outlaw Modifieds 25-lap feature. Tom Houghton (#33) led the first four laps of the feature but was passed by Hodgkinson early in the race. Hodgkinson put significant distance between himself and the rest of the field to secure first position. Meanwhile, Shawn McGlynn (#36q) was working his way through the field. By the time they had reached lap nineteen McGlynn was riding Hodgkinson’s bumper. McGlynn pulled up beside Hodgkinson and they crossed the finish in a pitched side-by-side battle for the win. Hodgkinson took the victory narrow margin. McGlynn placed second. Houghton placed third.

Before the races began, spectators were treated to a Classic Car Cruise and Show in support of Jesse’s Journey. Delaware Speedway was honoured to welcome special guest “Grandpa Bob” as the Grand Marshall, representing Jesse’s Journey on his 4000 km walk for Louie. One-hundred one cruise cars participated in the special event.

Racing resumes on Friday, August 1st with an event featuring the GAW Recycling Super Stocks, V8 Stocks, and the ever popular King of the Hill Spectators’ Race. The Open Ontario Four Cylinders series will also be visiting the track for a feature that evening. Tickets and information for this event, sponsored by GAW Recycling and Whitworth Towing, are available online.

The Night The Lights Went Out In Tillsonburg…..

The Night The Lights Went Out In Tillsonburg…..

GENERATORS FOR SALE

It’s a good thing we do have generators for sale because without the ability to take them off the shelf, we would not have had any timing system.

This was a week that problems just kept flying at us. Ontario Hydro must have sold too much power to the USA and our lights went out around 5pm. Oh Oh. Do we cancel the races because without lights and exhaust fans, we really can’t get the show in. About the time we thought hydro was letting us down, the lights came on and the race was on.

Wouldn’t you know that during the drivers meeting the power would go out again. I was looking for an excuse to take some pictures anyway and we decided that with some generators we could likely get the kids racing in before dark. Wait, no french fries without power, another generator solved that problem. Just when we were ready to start without power, the lights came on and we thought great, let’s get going. Well, we have a two phase system so although the lights worked fine, the exhaust fans were just marginally turning. Luckily with CO monitoring, we were able to work around that.

In the Tillsonburg Lubricare Beginners, Noah Longthorne(Innerkip) got his first win sticker this week. He did it with lots of company too as he ran in with the Junior class for the first time. Good job Noah but get your team to fasten that rear tail a little bit better.

The Smale Powder Coat Juniors did a great job working with Noah and leaving him to run cleanly but that did not mean there was no action. Tom Pellizzari managed to play hide and seek with me. At the exit of the back turn, Tom tried to squeeze between another racer and the wall. An end over end crash followed but before I could get to the scene, there was moving karts to wait for. When I got to the corner the only karts there were on their wheels and idling. Hmmm. Apparently while I was making sure the way was clear, Tom had landed on his wheels and continued on with the race only to be stopped by the waiving red flag that he had caused at the other end of the track. Kyle McGlone, Rayse Meyer and Nick Sheridan all gathered race wins this week with Sheridan winning overall, John Jackson taking second and McGlone in third.

The John Costello & Associates Seniors had less of the crash excitement but certainly good close racing in each of the three races. Scott Hall, Eric McGlone, and John Smibert each took a win but it was Cameron Davidson who won overall with a collection of second’s. There have been some concerns that Cameron’s engines from Ohsweken club were maybe helping him out but after going down the crankshafts before this weeks racing, maybe it has been his driving all along. Next week will tell the story when he has to start near the back each race. This division is likely the hardest class to make a pass in with drivers and karts being so closely matched.

Holly Molly, I shouldn’t have mouthed of last week about Bea Courtnage(In the Experts) needing to pay more attention to her racing and less to her boyfriend. She showed up this week and kicked our butts. Fastest lap times in both races went to…. Bea Courtnage. First race win…..Bea Courtnage, Overall win….. Bea Courtnage. See Bea, boys are nothing but trouble, leave him at home. Scott Chesterman and Holly Porter took second and third. Another record set this week was both Expert races were completed in 3 minutes each, no cautions and no restarts. Amazing how quickly you can do 20 laps at speed.

Well, that’s about it for this week.
Next Tillsonburg Race is Thursday July 31 2014

Pepin and Brown Capture Checkered Flags at High Line

Pepin and Brown Capture Checkered Flags at High Line

Despite a bleak forecast predicted for much of Central Ontario on July 19 the racing would continue at Barrie Speedway, and after two separate rain delays and lengthy red flag condition incurred in the first Thunder Car heat, the entire show would get completed after some hard work by staff members and drivers alike. The benefactors of the proceedings in the track’s featured Wahta Springs Late Model division were #91 Andre Pepin of Midland and #12 Dwight Brown of Beeton, as each driver went to victory lane in a 30 lap feature race. With the win, Pepin would jump forward one position in the season long point standings to land in 4th place, while Brown would close the gap from 17 to 12 points between himself and the current point leader #10 Gord Shepherd of Oro Station. With just seven point nights remaining, Shepherd continues to hold the previously mentioned 12 point lead over Brown, with the division leader in feature wins #31 Rick Walt of Hawkestone sitting just 27 markers out of the lead. With the standings as close as they have been in recent memory, expect the action to be highly intense and competitive between these three drivers as the season progresses forward into the month’s of August and September, as the track looks to crown its 2014 champion.

In the first 30 lap feature, it was #49 “Flyin” Frank Davey who checked into the early lead from the outside pole position after gaining the advantage of #5 Mike “The Hulkamaniac” Langley from the drop of the green. Langley, would soon find challenge to his outside from #24 Leonard “The Bandit” Johnston in the battle for 2nd, with Johnston wrestling away the position with a high side move entering turn three on lap 3. An early caution would fly one lap later when Langley would spin in turn 2, thus setting the stage for a Davey/Johnston duel from the front row on the restart. When the race went green again, Davey and Johnston would battle for multiple laps side by side, as the 91 of Pepin sat comfortably in the pocket in third, with Brown and Shepherd running in 4th & 5th respectively. Approaching the 10 lap mark, the man on the move was #41 Taylor Holdaway, as the talented pilot would charge from his 11th place starting position to land in 6th, accomplishing most of his passing while taking to the outer groove of the racetrack. Holdaway, would quickly pass the 5th place car of Shepherd along the outside, quickly setting his sights on Brown in the race for fourth. On lap 12, Johnston would finally clear Davey along the outside to assume control of the race lead, as the 91 of Pepin would also work his way past Davey two laps later with an inside move in turn three.

Nearing the 20 lap mark it was Brown’s turn to challenge Davey for position, as the former multi time Mosport Open Wheel Modified champ would advance to third with a clean low move on Davey while racing into turn 1. Just a little further in back of the Brown/Davey dice, the action was again heating up in the race for 5th, as Shepherd would complete an inside pass of Holdaway, with perhaps the many prior laps spent running the top side beginning to take its toll on Holdaway’s tires. Shepherd, was soon quick to follow the Brown progression along the inside line to relieve Davey of 4th, once again setting his sights on Brown just ahead of him. On lap 22, Shepherd would dive down to Brown’s inside between turns 3&4, with contact made between the pair sending Brown for a spin, as the rear end of his #12 Chevy would land on the hood of Shepherd after the tangle up, as both drivers took their place at the rear of the field for the restart. With Johnston and Pepin now aligning the front row, it was #69 Al “Red Rocket” Inglis and the 49 of Davey who checked in to form row number two, as Pepin would power into the race lead at the front of the field, with Johnston finding the inside line in 2nd, as Inglis would capture third, leaving Davey to fend off the challenge of the 31 of Walt for 4th, as the latter would capture that spot with an outside pass on the exit of turn two. On the last lap, Walt would dive down inside the 69 of Inglis while racing into turn three, as the two drivers set themselves to race wheel to wheel to the finish. It was clear once out front this race would belong to the 91 of Pepin however, as the driver would edge Johnston by two car lengths at the checkered. Inglis, would just nip Walt at the line in the race for the final podium position, with the 41 of Holdaway rounding out the top five.

In the 30 lap finale to the evening, it was #44 Rob Bromley who took the lead from the pole position, as the trio of Davey, Brown, and Inglis would all file through past outside pole sitter Langley who found himself trapped to the high side throughout the initial stages. On lap 7, the car to watch was the 10 of Shepherd, as the defending track champ would advance to 8th place after starting shotgun in the 12 car field, executing an outside pass of Pepin to assume control of that position. Shepherd, would soon land on the back bumper of Holdaway in the duel for 7th, with Shepherd completing an inside pass of his fellow competitor while racing out of turn two. On lap 12. it was the 12 of Brown who was beginning to make his presence felt near the front of the pack, passing Davey for 2nd with an impressive low move entering turn three, while at the same point in the race Walt would pass Inglis a little further in back to take over 4th in the running order. Right at the midway point, the hard charging 12 of Brown would take over the race lead, working to Bromley’s inside while entering turn one to assume control of the point.

The race’s first caution would fly on lap 16, when the 00 of Darryl St. Onge went around on the exit of turn 4. After another quick caution for a Pepin spin nearing the flagstand, Brown would power out front once again, opening a 2 car length lead over the 44 of Bromley, who soon came under fire from Davey in the race for 2nd, as the latter would take over that position. The Davey pass would quickly lead the way for the duo of Inglis and Shepherd to follow through under Bromley, dropping the pole sitter back to the 5th place position. On lap 21, Inglis would take over runner up positioning after passing Davey along the inside line, as Shepherd once again followed that move to assume control of third in the running order. Shepherd, would work his way by Inglis one lap later with a clean inside move as the duo raced into turn three. With the hotly contested battles going on in his rear view mirror, leader Brown was beginning to widen the gap on his competition with each passing lap, all the while completing laps in the 15.3 second range, now holding a near half straightaway advantage at the front of the field. Brown, would easily cruise on to record his 3rd feature win of the season, as Shepherd, Inglis, Walt, and Davey would comprise the remainder of the fast five.

In Triple Sick Skin Tattoo Thunder Car action, it was the current point leader #00 Luke Gignac who recorded the win in the 30 lap main. The win for Gignac was his 7th feature victory of the season, completing an amazing couple months for the longtime division veteran, who now looks to have a virtual lock on the 2014 track championship. The race would begin with #55 Shawn Goggins taking control of the point from the outside pole position, after pole sitter #7 Joel Hamilton would get crossways while approaching the flagstand on the opening lap. By lap 3, Gignac would work his way into the race lead from his 4th place starting position, passing Goggins along the inside line on the exit of turn two, as Goggins managed to hold the runner up position, with #64 Ryan Semple, #10 Jordan “Lil Gambler” Latimer, and #11 Adam Misener rounding out the top 5 in the early stages. Gignac, would open up a near half straightway lead at the front of the pack while completing laps of the one third mile tri oval configuration just a shade over the 16 second mark, as Semple would take second from Goggins after a hard fought battle, with a clean low pass on exit of turn two. The 10 of Latimer would follow that move one lap later to assume control of third place. On lap 15, it was Misener who was beginning to put on a charge towards the front of the pack, relieving Goggins of 4th with an inside move entering turn three.

The race’s first caution would fly on lap 17, when Goggins and visiting driver #07 Dan Archibald would collide while racing for 5th, with contact made between the pair midway down the backstretch sending Goggins for a spin. On the restart, Gignac would break away from the 2nd place car of Semple by three car lengths to once again assume control of the point, as Semple checked into 2nd, with Latimer, Misener, and the 29 car of visiting driver Steve Cashmore now rounding out the top five. After a lap 20 caution came about when Hamilton and #21 Bill Walt collected between turns 3&4, Gignac would again break away from Semple by a single car length, with the latter narrowly finding the inside groove in front of Latimer entering turn one to maintain runner up positioning. Over the duration, the best battle on track was the race for 4th, as Cashmore would find the inside of Misener between turns 1&2 with the two drivers waging a tough, clean battle for that position in what was an awesome display of short track racing. It was clear this race would belong to the front running Gignac however, as the driver would easily record the win by 5 car lengths over a game Semple who recorded a career best 2nd place finish at the checkered. Latimer, would cap off a solid point night with a workmanlike 3rd place effort, while Cashmore and Misener would complete the top 5.

Earlier heat wins went to Gignac and Latimer with a pair each. In recording the “hat trick” for the second time this season, Gignac would increase his point lead to a near insurmountable 86 points over the 2nd place car of Latimer, with #21 Desi Walt sitting in third just a single marker back of Latimer. Speaking of Walt, the 5th year division veteran would go for a wild ride in the opening heat race of the evening for the division, as she would make slight contact with the 11 of Misener in turn two, after Misener got loose on exit of that corner. The result would see contact with Walt’s right front and Misener’s left rear quarter panel, sending Walt towards the tire wall at entry of pit road. As she tried to correct, Walt would veer off and make contact with #37 Robbie Sikes, as the two drivers crashed into the outside retaining wall very hard, with Walt’s car sent for a barrel roll in what was a terribly scary incident. Thankfully both drivers would be fine, with the damage incurred proving terminal for Sikes’ #37 Impala SS while the Walt ride would make it back out for feature time, after some hard work from several teams pitside, now with father Bill behind the wheel from which he would orchestrate a 6th place feature showing.

In the St. Onge Recreation Pure Stock division, it was another current point leader who found victory lane in the 25 lap feature, as #10 Doug Butler of New Lowell would capture his division leading 5th feature win of the season in his super fast Nissan 240. The race would begin with #6 Josh Inglis moving to the point from pole position, as #88 Jeremy McLean began to work under #4 Barrie Moore for 2nd, a position he would eventually capture, dragging along the #28 of JP Rosevear along with him into third in the running order. McLean, would take the lead from Inglis a short while later, with Rosevear again following to land in 2nd, as Inglis was now trapped to the high side and in turn shuffled back in the field, as the quartet of #24 Rick Butler, #63 Jamie Cairns, #77 Mike Gettliffe, and Doug Butler all would make their way past. Approaching lap 10, Rosevear would pull along the high side of McLean for the race lead, and after a tough 2 lap battle the race’s first caution would fly as #400 Justin Holmes went around on the exit of turn four. On the restart, Rosevear would quickly take over the point after working around the outside of McLean, with Gettliffe making an inside move on lap 12 while racing out of turn two to take over 2nd, as Doug Butler would follow that move one lap later, dropping McLean back to the 4th place position.

The race’s second caution period would come about on lap 14, when #06 Rick Walt would make contact with #41 Connor James underneath the flagstand while racing just inside the top 10, sending James for a spin through the infield grass. On the restart, Gettliffe would give challenge to Rosevear’s outside, with Butler, and last weeks feature winner #68 Brandon Crumbie racing nip and tuck behind that duo. It was on lap 19 the race would turn really interesting, with Gettliffe working around the outside of Rosevear entering turn three while searching for the race lead, as Butler put the race 3 wide to the inside of the same corner as Rosevear fell back to third. Gettliffe, and Butler would drag race side by side approaching the flagstand, with slight contact made between the pair entering turn one sending Gettliffe slightly crooked and Butler to the extreme high side, as Crumbie dove down inside both drivers to take over at the front of the pack. Crumbie, would continue to soldier on with the race lead over the next four laps, when on the last lap, Butler would catch up with his fellow competitor and execute an inside pass while racing out of turn two to take over control of the point. Butler, would capture the win over the 2008 division champ Crumbie by a half car length at the checkered, as Gettliffe wasn’t far behind that duel in bringing his #77 Neon home in 3rd in what was a thrilling finish. #63 Jamie Cairns would bring his Cavalier to the line in 4th place, as #57 Ryan Toon would round out the top 5.

Earlier heat wins went to Butler with a pair to cap off a “hat trick” of his own, Crumbie, Toon, #24 Rick Butler, and #3 Randi Seguin.

PIT NOTES ——————- With several cancellations at a number of area tracks, Barrie Speedway would see a number of new faces align the pits to compete in the evening’s festivities. In the Wahta Springs Late Models, it would be #81 Britney Gresel of Sauble Beach who would take to the High Line for her first career start. Gresel, would keep a clean car under her the entire night in coming up with 11th and 12th place feature results, finishing on the lead lap in both 30 lap races despite electing to start at the rear of the field on the restarts. In the Triple Sick Skin Tattoo Thunder Car division it would be #29 Steve Cashmore of Freelton, #17 Tyler Liscum of Barrie, and #07 Dan Archibald of Innisfil who would make their first Barrie starts of 2014. Cashmore, would impress many in coming home with a 4th place feature finish to go with 2nd and 4th place results incurred in the heat races, while Liscum would bring his ride home in 7th place in the feature, after 4th and 5th place heat race finishes. Archibald, would drive to 2nd and 3rd place heat race showings, but wouldn’t fare as well in the feature when a late race black flag after contact post race under caution with Barrie regular #55 Shawn Goggins would negate top 10 results for both drivers. In the St. Onge Pure Stocks it was #1 Charlie Smith, #21 Ken Townsend, #87 Shawn Gerrior, and #36 Hudson Nagy who would all take to the Barrie track for the first time in 2014. Smith, the 2012 track champ in the division, would pilot his Neon to a tidy 6th place feature result after earlier twin 5th place heat race showings. Nagy, a Flamboro Speedway regular would also turn in twin 5th place heat race results to go with an impressive 11th place feature finish in what was the youngter’s first time seeing the Barrie track. Townsend, would pilot his Honda Civic to a 17th place feature finish in a deep and talent laden 25 car field, while Gerrior would bring his Neon home in 23rd, finishing 5 laps down after encountering some mechanical difficulties… Be sure to join us this coming Sat June 26 as all three divisions are back in action with pit gates open at 2pm, spectator gates commencing business at 5pm, and green flag racing slated for 6:30pm sharp.. With the season winding down gradually this should prove to be yet another can’t miss event!!!!

Get More Racing Than You Bargained For Saturday Night At Peterborough Speedway

Get More Racing Than You Bargained For Saturday Night At Peterborough Speedway

Poor weather conditions are the bane of every speedway promoter’s existence. The best night of racing can be rudely interrupted by Mother Nature and send a packed grandstand scurrying for the exits, but in a rare instance, a rainout midway through the program can be a benefit to fans in the weeks to follow.

Saturday, July 19th was the second of this year’s 3 Toonie Grandstand Admission/Fan Appreciation Nights at Peterborough Speedway. The stands were filled to near capacity and the pit area showed close to 20 entries in each of the night’s 5 scheduled divisions. Even with forecast models and weather radar showing rain all around the tight, tricky bullring on Mount Pleasant Road, west of the Liftlock City the qualifying events went into the record books with only a slight delay. It was only when the 4Fun division’s feature race took to the track that the skies opened-up and eventually cancelled the rest of the evening.

“Even though we were hoping for the best, we had planned for the worst,” said track owner/promoter J.P. Josiasse. “Saturday, July 26th we’ll add the rained-out Thunder Car and Late Model features to the regular race night. In a show of goodwill between Peterborough Speedway and Pepsi, anyone with a general admission ticket stub from Fan Appreciation Night will get 50% off their grandstand admission for this show.”

Action Saturday, July 26th will begin with the hold-over Thunder Car and Late Model features, then move from there into the regularly scheduled show that will see racing with the Parry Spring Service Renegade Truck, Paul Davis Systems Thunder Car, Earl Ireland Auto Sales Late Model and Inex Ontario Legend divisions, concluding with a 100 lap 4/6 and 8 cylinder endurance show. Pit gates will open at 3:00, with the spectator areas unlocked at 5:00 and the night’s first green flag at 6:00. Looking ahead on the schedule to Saturday, August 2nd which will see the Touring Chase for the Colours Pole Qualifying, including 50 and 30 lap features for the OSCAAR Outlaw Super Late Models and Modifieds respectively, as well as the Battlefield Equipment 4Fun, Peterborough Hyundai Mini Stock and Parry Spring Service Renegade Truck divisions, in addition to the 4Fun and Mini Stock features that had been rained-out July 19th.

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

McGlynn, Chenoweth, Lawrence And Holmes Big Winners At Flamboro Speedway

McGlynn, Chenoweth, Lawrence And Holmes Big Winners At Flamboro Speedway

By Randy Spencer - After experiencing such great weather all season long, the good luck finally came to and end this past weekend as Mother Nature won out out over racing and the program was postponed until Sunday afternoon at Bennett Chevrolet Flamboro Speedway.

The Lucas Oil Sportsman Cup series presented by Meinike Car Care Centers were on hand for the second of their four 100 lap race events this season. Also on the schedule, Round Three of the Flamboro/Delaware APC Six Pack Challenge for Thunder Cars. The Klotz Auto Repair & Engine Machine Shop Mini Stocks were on hand as well Sunday but due to scheduling conflicts the Ontario Pro Challenge and Canadian Vintage Modifieds were unable to make the Sunday program.

The afternoon got underway with Time Trials after showers from the early afternoon had passed and the track was dry. A field of twenty one Thunder Cars were first to qualify. Dave Bailey, Shae Gemmell, Branden Verhoeven and Brad Collison all took turns setting the fast time but Shawn Chenoweth would prove to be the fastest on this day with a time of 16.967. Chenoweth would be the only Thunder Car to get below 17 seconds and he would go into the afternoon leading Shae Gemmell of Delaware Speedway by just four points, 391 to 387. The Lucas Oil Sportsman Cup series followed the Thunder Cars with fourteen cars ready to see who could crack into the ‘Fast Five’ draw. Tim Tolton set the fast time early at 17.040 but several cars would crack the 16 second mark including Josh Wood, Brennan Didero and current points leader Kevin Allen. The final two cars would show that the best was saved until last as Jake Ott set the fast time to that point at 16.716. Last car on the track was Shawn McGlynn. His first lap set the fast time but he went a bit faster on lap two and set the fast time of the day at 16.538 to complete qualifying and head right into a short session of heat races, just two for the Mini Stocks. Ken Stenhouse and Russ Aicken took the checkered flags in the ten lap qualifiers and we would head directly into the first 25 lap Thunder Car feature.

The top two times in qualifying went to a couple of Flamboro regulars, Shawn Chenoweth of Plattsville and Brad Collison of Cambridge, sponsored by London Recreational Concrete Pools and Spas. Collison led lap one but his teammate Chenoweth took over and wouldn’t relinquish the lead for the the next 25 laps. As Chenoweth increased his lead, the real battle was for second through fourth as “The Ice Man’ Brad Collison battled hard the entire race with Verhoeven and “The Flying Farmer” Kevin Gallant. The top five at the checkered flag were, Chenoweth, Collison, Verhoeven, Gallant and Kevin Albers.

The Klotz Auto Repair & Engine Machine Shop Mini Stocks made a quick turnaround and took to the track for their 25 lap main event. Last week’s feature winner Darren Dryden was missing from this week’s lineup. Nice to see Scott Simmons, Rich Schwartzenburg and Billy Schwartzenberg back for the afternoon. Billy has been tearing up tracks around the province in his #86 Spira Mustang but on this day would take out the #2 of Mark Dennis. A couple of young guns were on the point as Jake Gilbert and Hudson Nagy led the field to green. Nagy has been having a strong rookie season, led for the first 11 laps. The two cars most people are watching these days because of their weekly battles, Mike Holmes in the #13 and Russ Aicken in the #71 made their way to the front quick. Holmes started sixth and Aicken started at the back in 14th place. On lap 12, Holmes who resides in London, Ontario, made it past the young Nagy and would hold off the field to pick up another feature win. Aicken made his way through the field and ended up finishing third behind Scott Simmons.

It was intermission time and the Lucas Oil Sportsman Cup cars lined up on the front straight. The ‘Fast Five’ drivers were paired with a young fan and would make the draw to see where they would start the 100 lap feature. The top five qualifiers were Shawn McGlynn, Jake “The Juice Box” Ott, Josh Wood, Brennan Didero and Kevin Allen. The draw would shake things up and after the draw the front five went, Josh Wood, Brennan Didero, Jake Ott, Shawn McGlynn and Kevin Allen. The green flag flew and early on it appeared the Ott would be in some trouble. He got mixed up with another car and fell back to almost mid pack. He would battle his way back all night however as the race continued. After that early near mishap, the race ran clean and we had 70 laps of continuous green flag racing. That streak was broken as the #70 of Ben Charbonneau went around in turn four. By this time McGlynn had built up a healthy lead losing some of his closest competitors in lapped traffic. As McGlynn was distancing himself, the real battle was for second through fourth as Didero, Allen and Ott made it interesting. Another caution on lap 95 as the #18 of Chad McGlynn spun in turn four. Cautions seemed to breed cautions as on the restart the yellow cam out once again as a chain reaction incident heading into turn three collected several cars including points leader Kevin Allen. The car that seemed to benefit most was the #60 of Jake Ott as he avoided the mess and moved into second place. Two laps later another caution would set up a green-white-checker race to the finish. As the cars took the checkered flag, Shawn McGlynn of Kitchener, Ontario came home first followed by Ott, Didero, Dave Connelly and Mike Nelson.

The final feature of the night was the second 25 lap race for the APC Thunder Car Challenge. All lead lap cars from the first feature were inverted so that meant Steve Perry and Dave Bailey would start on the point for this one. The race went clean for the first 18 laps but on the 19th trip around the front two cars of Perry and Shawn Arnott got a bit squirrely and the field piled up behind them. Nine cars were involved in this mess bringing out an extended caution. Seven of the top eight cars were now at or near the back. Jordan Lawrence of Delaware Speedway found himself in the top spot as he managed to avoid the wreck. Lawrence wasn’t so lucky the last trip in to Flamboro as a similar crash in turn two saw Lawrence go off on the back of a tow truck. As the cars took the green with five laps to go Lawrence, in enemy territory had to hold off former Flamboro Thunder Car champion “Killer” Kevin Albers. Albers battled Lawrence hard but wasn’t able to complete the pass and Lawrence came across first. It was the first ever Thunder Car/Super Stock feature event win for the 18 year old London resident. Albers came home second followed by Steve Cashmore, Shawn Chenoweth and Dave Bailey completed the top five. As the numbers were tallied for the two 25 lap features on the night, Shawn Chenoweth was the overall winner, holding onto his points lead in the APC Six Pack Challenge series. Round Four goes this Friday night, July 25th at Delaware Speedway near London.

Wheelstander Makes History At Full Throttle

Wheelstander Makes History At Full Throttle

Varney, ON- It’s not often that the world of drag racing and oval racing come together on the same track, but that is what happened this past Friday at Full Throttle Speedway. Just a few miles south of Durham, history was made. NitroMike, from Mission BC brought his Guinness World Record holding, wheelstanding PT Cruiser out to show it off, prior to racing action. The alcohol blown, injected, Chrysler 448 PT Cruiser did a couple of laps, putting on an amazing fire show for the fans. Then the racier kicked in, although NitroMike informed track staff he would not make an attempt at a wheelstand due to the banking of the track, he lined it up out of corner two and did it, history was made, a wheelstand at an oval track! Mike and his wife Wanda tour all over the United States and Canada with their amazing “Walking Tall PT Cruiser” and will be performing Grand Bend in a couple of weeks. For more information on NitroMike check out his web site at nitromike.com

Even after witnessing history before the first green flag was in the air how would fans have known they would witness even more history along with the ever growing excitement that has become a normal race night at the highbanks. The Outlaw Four Modified where on had to try their run at three twenty lap features. Even though the field may have lacked cars they defiantly were not short on driver talent. With the likes of returning feature winner A.J. Emms in the 10, the 0 piloted by Cliff Hodgkinson, 46 driven by Shawn McGlynn and 40 by The Ironman Gary Elliot, who also had his first ever run in a roofless car. Fans where in store for some great racing. In feature one, the first half of the race saw 0 Cliff Hodgkinson from Breslau, solidly out in front. A lap thirteen caution for the 3 Rob Divenanzo who got high in corner 2 and slid his ride into the tires at the wall. On the restart, 10 A.J. Emms would take advantage of his outside pole starting position to jump into the lead that would take him all the way to his first checker flag of the night. Second was 0 Cliff Hodgkinson, third 36 Dave Hodgkinson from Breslau, fourth 40 Gary Elliot from Waterdown and fifth 3 Rob Divenanzo. In feature two 10 A.J. Emms would take advantage of his pole starting position to make it two in a row, on hopes of getting the hat trick after intermission. Second in this race was 36 Dave Hodgkinson, third 0 Cliff Hodgkinson, fourth 40 Gary Elliot and rounding out the top five 46 Shawn McGlynn. In feature three of the night it looked like 46 Shawn McGlynn was on his way to play spoiler but with two laps to go 10 A. J. Emms was able to get along side and with the white flag flying it was a side by side dash to the strip and in the end he would not be deigned the hat trick. Third was 0 Cliff Hodgkinson, fourth 36 Dave Hodgkinson and fifth 40 Gary Elliot.

In the Open Wheel Modified class fans got to witness some outstanding bold moves as first time visitor, 57 Andy Jankovich from Buffalo NY, made the three hour trip after seeing the speedway on You Tube three years ago and put it on his wish list of tracks to race at. He was also looking forward to going head to head with the current number 1 driver in Ontario Open Wheel Modifieds Gary McLean from Conn, on the track he has dominated over the years. With a good field of cars on hand feature one saw the local favourite start in the number 3 position, while his competitor starting in the number 9 spot. From the drop of the green, fans were on the edge of there seats, as 8 Gary McLean did everything he could to get out in front and build a big lead. Back in the pack 57 Andy Jankovich was working his way to the front. While running third, as the leaders were starting to make their way around lapped traffic, he was able to duck down inside and make the pass to the lead. Now with 8 McLean, running second he did everything he could to get back around but in the end it was 57 Jankovich, 8 McLean third 4 Aaron McLean from Mount Forest, fourth 13 Bobby Tolton from Guelph and fifth 47 Brian McLean from Conn. Feature two, Jankovich would start in the fourth position and Gary McLean in the fifth position but McLean would take advantage of his inside line moving while the outside line didn’t get a jump off the green and it would be McLean to the early lead with Jankovich dropping in behind him and following the whole race, trying everything he could to get past. Then as the white flag was coming out McLean had to make a pass on a lapped car going high, he figured he had the right line but got hung up just enough to allow 57 Jankovich to take the low line and make the pass for the lead. There was nothing Gary McLean could do but watch the checker fly one more time for the American. Third in this feature went to 4 Aaron McLean, fourth 47 Brian McLean and rounding out the top five was 23 Paul Milligan from Innisfil Beach. You can watch this second feature race by following this link :http://youtu.be/rT6eC9VAYpo?list=UU6fAn1rLsk_0FWitF4dpApw

Mini Stock saw the return of a former regular at the speedway. He proved he has not forgotten how to hit the marks to make it around the highbanks. With the return of Brandon Crumbie from Cookstown, it just added another quality front running car to the already long list of drivers at Full Throttle. In feature one it was the main players 51 Clark Hartman from Waterloo and 36 Corry Young from Owen Sound getting out front running side by side with the 68 Brandon Crumbie following right behind waiting for a chance. The chance came on lap 14 when a little miscue by Hartman opened the door enough to allow Crumbie the inside line. A caution came on lap 17 as 14 Brian Wilson from Rockwood would blew a rad hose. On the restart it was Crumbie inside, Hartman outside and Young right behind. That is the way they would run the rest of the race. Fourth in this feature would go to 7 Paul Boyd from Harriston and to round out the top 5 would be 35 Tim Tolton from Guelph. Feature two looked like it was going to be all 73 Scott Schlueter from Milverton, as he was able to use his outside pole position to get a great jump on the rest of the field. As it turned out, lady luck was not on his side, as 68 Crumbie and 51 Hartman were able to track him down close to the halfway point in the race, slip past and that is how they would finish, 68 Crumbie getting his second checker of the night followed by 51 Hartman 73 Schlueter hanging on for third, fourth going to 7 Paul Boyd and rounding out the top five was 36 Corry Young.

In Pure Stock action drivers would test themselves and their machines, as they would also try three features on this night. In feature one saw the return of 01 Travis Farrow from Dromore, after a couple of weeks off he showed he was ready to race as he got himself out front and was able to stay there the entire race. Second would go to 17 Sandy Eccles from Ayton, third 14 Luke Bos from Conn, fourth Jesse Lamont from Hanover and rounding out the top five 34 Don Tremble from Durham. Feature two saw the one two battle to the finish right from the drop of the green, 14 Luke Bos would use his pole starting position to fend off the hard charging 43 Joey Schouten from Mount Forest. Even after a number of cautions, the way they started is the way they finished. Third would go to 84 Matt Hopkins, fourth 34 Don Tremble and fifth 5 Lyle Lorenz from Listowel. The third and final feature for the night, again with a number of cautions did see an amazing finish. As this race looked all but over with the 17 Sandy Eccles on cruise control for the final lap, he made the turn coming out of corner four to the checker when the right rear tire of the car came off, spinning him to the infield, much to the delight of 14 Luke Bos who now found himself in victory lane! Second was 01 Travis Farrow, third 34 Don Tremble, fourth 84 Matt Hopkins and rounding out the top five 43 Joey Schouten.

Next action will be this coming Friday July 25th as we have V8 Thunder Stocks for three features, Mini Stocks, Pure Stocks, and the Crazy Trains. Everything as always kicks off at 7:30PM, and be sure to find us on Facebook to stay updated on coming events and attractions!

Toonie Admission/Fan Appreciation Night At Peterborough Speedway Falls Victim To Mother Nature

Toonie Admission/Fan Appreciation Night At Peterborough Speedway Falls Victim To Mother Nature

Everything started off perfectly. A full pit area had close to 20 teams registered in each of the 5 scheduled divisions and a strong crowd was on hand to watch the action on Toonie Grandstand Admission/Fan Appreciation Night, presented by Pepsi – Saturday, July 19th – at Canada’s Toughest 3rd of a Mile Oval.

The evening’s qualifying action went into the books with just a brief delay for a quick passing shower and then the feature races – beginning with the Battlefield Equipment Rental 4Fun division – were scheduled to hit the tight, tricky bullring on Mount Pleasant Road, west of the Liftlock City. It was during the 3rd of a series of quick caution flags that the skies opened-up and caused track officials to throw-in the towel. Track owner/promoter J.P. Josiasse says it was an unfortunate end to a great night of racing.

“We’d been watching the weather radar and checking all the forecast models throughout the day,” said Josiasse. “Even when the radar showed it was raining in Peterborough, things were still dry at the track so it looked like we’d be safe. Of course, looks can be deceiving and we had to cancel the balance of the program.”

Always willing to please a very loyal fan base, Josiasse says that as a goodwill gesture Peterborough Speedway and Pepsi will offer half-price grandstand admission for the Saturday, July 26th show to anyone who presents a general admission ticket stub from Saturday, July 19th. The feature races that were not run will be made-up starting July 26th, when the Thunder Car, Late Model divisions will run double main events. Mini Stock and 4Fun classes will have double features Saturday, August 2nd. Another Fan Appreciation will be held Saturday, August 16th. The Inex Ontario Legends feature will be made-up then.

Before the rain arrived, Battlefield Equipment Rental 4Fun heat race wins went to Matthew Vanderbelt, Ray Schroer, Willow Barberstock and Griffin Powell. Howie Crowe and John Baker Jr. each took a pair of Paul Davis Systems Thunder Car qualifiers, while Danny Benedict grabbed a couple of Peterborough Hyundai Mini Stock checkered flags, with Tyler Junkin and Ryan Oosterholt taking the other 2. Craig Graham, Bryan Mercer, Ryan Kimball and Jack Horner claimed the Earl Ireland Auto Sales Late Model preliminary rounds. Inex Ontario Legend qualifying belonged to Nick Ledson with a pair. Dave Riopelle and Matt Haufe split the others.

Bullring Bullet Points: Losing a wheel and bringing out the night’s final caution was a rough finish for Kenny Ohno Jr., but the young driver won the 50/50 draw earlier in the night, taking home $900.50…The Earl Ireland Auto Sales Late Model division was bolstered by the addition of veterans Bryan Mercer and Dan McHattie; as well as Nick Oram, who pulled his #00 machine out of the barn to make the show. Chris Mitchell was also back at the controls of his #22 ride for the first time in a number of weeks..To gain a better understanding of changes needed to the car, Randy Hollingsworth ran some laps in his granddaughter Willow Barberstock’s #62 4Fun ride during pre-race practice.

In addition to the rain delayed features, action Saturday, July 26th will feature a full program with the Parry Spring Service Renegade Truck, Paul Davis Systems Thunder Car, Earl Ireland Auto Sales Late Model and Inex Ontario Legend divisions. Racing will conclude with a 100 endurance event. Pit gates will open at 3:00, with the spectator areas unlocked at 5:00 and the first green flag at 6:00.

Toonie Admission/Fan Appreciation Night Returns to Peterborough Speedway this Weekend

Toonie Admission/Fan Appreciation Night Returns to Peterborough Speedway this Weekend

Just toss your toonie on the counter and head inside.

Saturday, July 19th Canada’s Toughest 3rd of a Mile Paved Oval hosts another of this year’s Toonie Grandstand Admission/Fan Appreciation Nights, presented by Pepsi. Race action includes the Battlefield Equipment Rental 4Fun, Peterborough Hyundai Mini Stock, Paul Davis Systems Thunder Car, Earl Ireland Auto Sales Late Model and Inex Ontario Legend divisions. At intermission, the pit gates will be opened-up and cars will be brought to the front stretch for a popular autograph session. Track owner and promoter J.P. Josiasse says it’s a wonderful opportunity for the fans to meet the drivers they proudly support week after week.

“The drivers in every division put on a great show every time the green flag waves and they appreciate the support they get from the fans,” said Josiasse. “Fan Appreciation Nights are a perfect time to show how much that backing really means. The effort they put forward to provide and sign photos, hand out candy and other assorted treats is something the fans are always thankful for and the drivers enjoy it as well.”

As the second half of the season gets underway, drivers will be looking for every possible advantage to help them land the 2014 track championship. Point battles are tighter now than they’ve been in years and it appears that there is a fairly level playing field in each class. After a hot streak that saw him log a number of Renegade Truck victories early on, Jack Dallin has showed he has the ability to play well with others. Anthony DiBello has picked-up a trio of Thunder Car checkered flags, but will also likely face a solid fight for a seat at the head table when the title holder’s hardware is handed out. Consistency will be the key when it comes to claiming the crown.

The Toonie Grandstand Admission/Fan Appreciation Night is always a popular event and to accommodate the anticipated crowd volume, Peterborough Speedway officials have announced a revised schedule from what was posted in the original version released at the start of the year. Everything has been moved ahead one hour, with pit gates opening at 2:00 and spectator grandstands unlocked at 4:00. Racing will begin at 5:00. Looking ahead on the schedule, the Saturday, July 26th program will feature the Parry Spring Service Renegade Truck, Paul Davis Systems Thunder Car, Earl Ireland Auto Sales Late Model and Inex Ontario Legend divisions and a 100 lap endurance event.

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

They may already have Paul Davis Systems Thunder Car feature race wins on their 2014 resume, but Dan Price (#09) and Anthony DiBello will still battle for every possible inch of real estate on Canada’s Toughest 3rd of a Mile Paved Oval.

Pepin and St. Onge Claim Second Feature Wins of Season

Pepin and St. Onge Claim Second Feature Wins of Season

 By Dave Vokey- On what was yet another picturesque evening for racing Barrie Speedway would kick off the second half of the 2014 season in fine style on July 12, as the evenings big winners were #91 Andre Pepin of Midland and #00 Darryl St. Onge of Barrie, as each driver would capture a 30 lap feature victory in the track’s featured Wahta Springs Late Model division. Ironically enough, it would be both drivers second feature win of the season and first since the month of May, with Pepin’s prior victory coming in the season opening event on May 10, while St. Onge captured his first career Late Model feature win on the May 24th card. The win for both drivers would further cement their stature within the top 5 in the season long point standings, as Pepin checks into 5th place just 44 points in back of current point leader and defending track champ #10 Gord Shepherd of Oro Station, while St. Onge currently sits in 4th place in the standings, just 7 points ahead of his fellow competitor Pepin, and 37 in back of Shepherd for the division lead.

In the first 30, it was Pepin and #69 Al “Red Rocket” Inglis who went wheel to wheel from the onset, with pole sitter Pepin finally breaking clear of Inglis entering turn 1 on lap three to assume control of the race lead. Holding down 3rd place in the early stages was #44 Rob Bromley of Orillia, with the 4th place car of #49 “Flyin” Frank Davey receiving early pressure for that position from #12 Dwight Brown of Beeton, as Brown would have a look to the inside of Davey midway down the backstretch but was unable to make the pass stick. Perhaps the early pressure from Brown would light a fire under venerable veteran Davey, as the former 4 time Thunder Car champ would work his way to Bromley’s outside for 3rd entering turn one to advance further in the running order, leading the way for the silky smooth 12 of Brown to follow a short while later to claim 4th place. On lap 8, Brown would take over third from Davey with a sleek inside pass between turns 1&2, as leader Pepin was now free and clear of the second place car of Inglis by 3 car lengths at the front of the field. Nearing the midway mark, the man on the move was the 31 of Rick Walt of Hawkestone, as the talented pilot would work his way past Brown for 3rd with a low side pass between turn 1&2, after the hard charging Walt would begin the race in the ninth place starting position.

At the front of the pack, it was still Pepin who was firmly in control, holding a near half straightaway lead on the 2010 track champ Inglis, as Pepin was completing laps of the one third mile tri oval configuration in the 15.1 second range. Inglis, would soon find the 31 of Walt land on his back bumper a short while later, with the talented Inglis able to momentarily fend off the Walt charge. At this point in the race the best battle on track was the race for 7th, as #24 Leonard “The Bandit” Johnston and #79 Cory Horner waged an impressive dice for that position, with Johnston eventually prevailing and being able to hold off the pesky Horner. With three laps remaining, the 31 of Walt would dive down inside Inglis entering turn 3 to take over 2nd, while a little further in back the duo of Shepherd and St. Onge would work past the 49 of Davey advance to 5th and 6th respectively. At the front of the field, third year driver Pepin would remain calm and collected, hitting all his marks along the way with the 31 of Walt still lurking and able to slightly cut into the advantage Pepin had built up at the front of the pack. Pepin, would drive on to record the victory in the caution free affair by 3 car lengths over the oncoming Walt at the checkered. Inglis, would get his night kick started under solid footing with a 3rd place effort, while Brown and Shepherd would comprise the remainder of the top five.

In the 30 lap finale to the evening, it was the 79 of Horner who found the front early after gaining the advantage on the 44 of Bromley from the drop of the green. Also on the move in the early stages was the duo of St. Onge and Johnston, as the two former Thunder Car drivers would make their way under the 44 of Bromley to check into 2nd and 3rd respectively just a couple laps in. On lap 4, St. Onge would work his way to the inside of leader Horner in turn 2 to take control of the point, with the duo of Johnston and Brown alertly following that move to drop Horner back to 4th in the running order. On lap 8, Brown would find the inside of Johnston on the exit of turn 4 to take over runner up positioning, with the 31 of Walt also nearing the front of the field, as he too would pass Johnston to take over third place. The race’s only caution would fly on lap 9, as Davey would spin in turn two after possible contact, with Davey coming to rest against the tire wall along the entry to pit road and sustaining some front end damage along the way.

On the restart, leader St. Onge would break out to a marginal advantage over the 12 of Brown who soon came under heavy fire from the 31 of Walt, as the latter would advance to 2nd place with a clean inside move entering turn 1. At the midway point, Walt was all over the back bumper of St. Onge for the race lead, looking both high and low to find a way past, as the sleek looking 00 of St. Onge held firm and was able to fend off the Walt challenge every step of the way. Just a little further in back of the St.Onge/Walt dice for the race lead, the 12 of Brown found himself locked in a duel with Shepherd for 3rd, as Shepherd would have a look to the inside in between turns 3&4, but was unable to make the potential pass stick. With just two laps remaining, there was a battle shaping up for 5th place positioning involving Inglis and Johnston, with Johnston having a brief look to his counterpart’s inside out of turn two but was unable to find power under hood to work his way around the wily veteran Inglis. At the front of the field, St. Onge still had a mirror full of the 31 of Walt in the battle for the point, but St. Onge would show incredible poise in protecting the lower groove, fending Walt off at every opportunity, as St. Onge would drive on to record the win by a single car length over Walt at the stripe. Brown, would cap off a solid point night in coming home third, while Shepherd and Inglis would complete the fast five.

In Triple Sick Skin Tattoo Thunder Car action, it was the current point leader #00 Luke Gignac of Port McNicholl who recorded the win in the 30 lap main, marking the driver’s 6th feature win of the season in just nine feature races. Entering the second half of the 2014 campaign, Gignac looks of have a virtual lock on the 2014 track title, holding a 70 point lead on his nearest competition #21 Desi Walt of Hawkestone, who would have a solid night of her own in finishing 3rd in the feature race. The race would begin with #3 Jim Morrison taking the early lead from the pole position, as #37 Robbie Sikes would make his way under #7 Joel Hamilton an inside move in turn two with to take control of 2nd place in the early going. The Sikes move would quickly lead the way for the duo of #55 Shawn Goggins and #22 Jason Elliott to also follow through under the 7 of Hamilton to take over 3rd and 4th respectively. On lap 3, Goggins would continue his charge towards the front, passing Sikes for 2nd with an inside move midway down the backstretch. After an early debris caution would appear, it was again Morrison who found the point after fending off a challenge from the 55 of Goggins along the outside line. Goggins, would eventually lose runner up position to the 37 of Sikes, who then quickly found his way to the race lead with an inside pass of Morrison in turn three on lap nine, with the duo of #11 Adam Misener and Elliott quickly following that progression to enter podium positioning.

At this point in the race the best duel on track was the battle for 5th, as Gignac and #64 Ryan Semple went to war for that position, with Gignac eventually taking the spot despite a valiant effort from Semple. On lap 10, misfortune would befell the 55 of Goggins who slowed along the frontstretch with a flat left front tire, forcing the driver pitside and giving up his top 5 positioning in the process. With Sikes and Misener now aligning the front row, the ensuing restart wouldn’t go well when Morrison spun out of turn 4, with #50 “Pistol” Pete Marquardt having nowhere to go but into the side of the prone Morrision Chysler 300 Z. This time on the restart, Sikes and Misener would wage a tough and clean two lap duel for the race lead, with Misener eventually clearing his counterpart, leading the way for an alert 22 of Elliott to follow and claim 2nd, with an inside pass of Sikes in turn three. It was at this point in the race Gignac was beginning to make his presence felt, working past Sikes for third right at the midway mark. At the front of the field, Misener was steadily pacing the field with laps in the 16.4 second range, holding Elliott at bay by 2 car lengths, as Elliott would then come under fire from the hard charging Gignac for runner up positioning. On lap 22, Gignac would execute a bump and run move on Elliott between turns 1&2 to take over second, quickly Setting his sights on finding the back bumper of race leader Misener. The race’s fourth and final caution would fly on the completion of lap 27, after Goggins would get some contact from #10 Jordan “Lil Gambler” Latimer, with Goggins going for a spin in turn two and both drivers summoned arrears for the restart. When the race went green, it was Gignac who quickly found the point from the outside line around the high side of Misener, with the third place car of Elliott now under heavy fire from the 21 of Walt. On the last lap, Walt would pull along the high side of Elliott entering turn three to take over that position , but it was clear that once out front the race was Gignac’s to lose and the driver wouldn’t disappoint his many fans in attendance en route to claiming the victory by three car lengths over Misener at the checkered. Walt, would turn in an impressive showing in coming to the line in 3rd, as Elliott and Sikes rounded out the top 5.

Four different heat winners came in the form of Gignac, Sikes, #55 Shawn Goggins, and #10 Jordan Latimer.

In the St. Onge Recreation Pure Stock division it was #68 Brandon Crumbie of Beeton who claimed his first feature win of the season in a fast paced 25 lap affair. For Crumbie the 2008 track champion in the division, the win would mark his first feature victory at the track since that championship season, with the talented driver having spent the last several season split between the Late Model and Open Wheel Modified ranks at various tracks throughout the province. The race would begin with an early duel between #6 Josh Inglis and #18 Tim Gagne, with Gagne eventually taking the lead from outside pole position with a outside pass of Inglis entering turn 1 on lap two. Also on the move early was #88 Jeremy McLean, as the driver would relieve Inglis of 2nd, quickly leading the way for the fast #28 Mustang of JP Rosevear to claim 3rd. Rosevear, would quickly pass McLean for runner up positioning, and would receive a further stroke of luck when leader Gagne slowed entering turn 1 with mechanical issues, handing the point over to Rosevear who soon found challenge to the inside from the #06 of Ryan Hardy for the race lead. On lap 11, it was Hardy’s turn to experience difficulty, when he too would slow on track while racing out of turn two, quickly allowing the fast duo of Crumbie and defending division champ #77 Mike Gettliffe to pass him and advance to second and third respectively.

The caution would soon appear a short while later when Hardy would come to a halt in turn four unable to make it back to pit road to correct his ailing #06 Neon. The top 5 at this point would be made up of leader Rosevear, Crumbie, Gettliffe, McLean, and #57 Ryan Toon. On the restart, Crumbie was quick to power around the outside of Rosevear and into the race lead, with Gettliffe also beginning to work the top side of Rosevear while searching for 2nd, while a little further in behind Toon would claim 4th from McLean. After the 2nd caution period would come about, Crumbie again found the point, this time Gettliffe would slip under Rosevear for 2nd, quickly leading the way for the hard charging #57 VW Golf of Toon to advance to third. Crumbie, began to set a torrid pace at the front of the pack, completing laps in the 16.6 second range, keeping Gettliffe at bay by a single car length, with the best battle now a shaping up just outside of the top 5 at point leader #10 Doug Butler would pass #64 “California” Dave Crumbie for the sixth place position. Unfortunately Butler would begin to slip back in the running order, with a suspected left front tire going down with just a handful of laps remaining. On the last lap, Gettliffe would get a nose to the inside of leader Crumbie between turns 1&2, but as had been the case the majority of the night the #68 Mustang of Crumbie would really take a liking to the outside line, as the driver was able to hold onto the race lead, just edging Gettliffe by a half car length at the finish. #57 Ryan Toon would follow up a runner up showing one week ago with his 2nd podium in succession in coming to the line in third, while Rosevear and #3 Randi Seguin would round out the top 5.

As with the Thunder Cars, the Pure Stocks would not see a repeat heat race winner on this evening either as Crumbie, Toon, Doug Butler, #400 Justin Holmes, #09 Dean Curry, and #24 Rick Butler would claim heat race wins. The win for Rick Butler was his first career win in the Pure Stock ranks, a high water accomplishment on the season for what is a vastly improving race program.

Shawn Chenoweth Crowned Mid Season Late Model Champ At Flamboro

Shawn Chenoweth Crowned Mid Season Late Model Champ At Flamboro

By Randy Spencer - Saturday night was the mid way point of the race season at Bennett Chevrolet Flamboro Speedway and so far it’s been a very exciting one. In the Mini Stock division, Mike Holmes (1095) is leading second place driver Russ Aicken (1073). In the Thunder Car division, The “Ice Man” Brad Collison (1049) leads The “Flying Farmer” Kevin Gallant (1046). In the Pure Stock division, Shawn Taylor (867) leads Gillian Hils (858) and in the Pro 4 Modifieds, Craig Shaver (323) is leading Bill Pearsall (300). The final race, the Late Models will come to a climax tonight. Shawn Chenoweth leads Dale Shaw by a mere 3 points, 647-644.

Tonight there was also a second feature on tap for the Pure Stocks. Pure Stocks, Enduro cars built to our rules, Ohsweken Bombers, Delaware Bone Stocks and Four Fun cars were allowed. Pure Stocks will run a heat and feature for points and payout. An Invitational feature ran at end of the night with the winner getting a paid entry for the October 25th $5000 TO WIN Enduro. Courtney Scott, a regular runner in the Mini Stock division, ran her first night in a Pure Stock while Karl Sault, a regular Ohsweken Bomber driver and past Ohsweken track champion was in the lineup. Rodney Rutherford, who has ran Flamboro in the past was also in a Pure Stock.

The night got under way with heat racing. Gillian Hils took the Pure Stock heat, John Verney, a former Pro 4 regular was back for a visit from his new home in B.C. He took the checkered flag in heat one and Bill Pearsall took heat #2. Mini Stock wins went to Darren Dryden, Mike Holmes and two by Hudson Nagy. Thunder Car wins went to Shawn Chenoweth, Kevin Albers, Brad Collison and Kevin Gallant. Late Model heat wins went to Dale Shaw with two and Shawn Chenoweth with two.

A big thanks to John “Crash” Myers, Mark DaSilva and Leggat Chevrolet Cadillac Buick GMC in Burlington for donating a new girls and boys bike that were given away to a couple of very excited young race fans. The racing makes fans but great giveaways like this sure excites the kids and fans for life!

Feature racing got under way with the first Pure Stock feature. Bill Rutherford and Wayde Thorne were on the poll. Thorne led lap one but Danny Shantz made quick work and took the lead and led all the way for the win.

Mini Stocks were up next. Rick Robinson and Mark Dennis were up front and were surely looking over their shoulders. The top three drivers in point standings have been waging a fierce battle all season and once the green flag dropped they made their way to the front. Dryden started eighth, Aiken was ninth and Holmes tenth. Hudson Nagy has been showing steady improvement all season. After winning both his heats earlier in the evening, the rookie took the lead on lap 2. He held off the field for 9 laps but the veteran Mike Holmes took over the lead. Holmes, Aiken, Blair Wickett and Nagy battled for a dozen laps. It appeared that Holmes would pick up the win but heading for the white flag, a mishap occurred and Aiken took the lead from Holmes and picked up the feature win. (I personally didn’t see it as I work as race scorer so can’t give a detailed account, my apologies) Mark Klotz, who has been really coming on strong of late had some problems during
practice. At first it was thought to be an engine issue. Klotz, who runs Klotz Auto Repair & Engine Machine Shop is an expert engine builder and the sponsor of the Mini Stock division. Upon further inspection after the race, Klotz said, “Not an engine problem, we found a small washer that came off carb and got sucked in to the engine. No real damage.” Good news, hope to see you back next week Mark!

Thunder Car feature was next with Rob Istead and Shawn Arnott on the pole. Istead led early but after several tries to take the lead, Kevin Albers finally was successful on lap 15, followed closely by Kevin Gallant. A few laps later, Gallant came to a stop in turn one. He went off on the hook and he had a broken tie rod. Kevin Albers also had some trouble and retired to the pits. On the restart, Shawn Chenoweth took the lead and held off Arnott and Collison for the win.

The Pro 4 Modifieds were up and Josh Lassaline and Linc Erison were on the point. Heading into turn two on the third lap, Aaron Turkey went around and took a hard hit bringing out the caution. On the restart, Lassaline got tangled with another car and went around in turn one. The red flag came out as flames were visible but everyone was ok and Lassaline was able to continue. Bill Pearsall took the lead on the restart and went on to pick up the feature win.

The Late Model feature was up and this was the mid season championship as well as the end of the first half points. Shawn Chenoweth led Dale Shaw by 3 points at the start of the night and a champion would be crowned tonight. (The Late Models will then start over at zero again, check website for details) Rick Burbridge and Nick Roth were on the pole. Before long Chenoweth made his way to the front. He held off a hard charging Burbridge and Shaw and when the points were tallied, Chenoweth edged Dale Shaw by 8 points and was crowned the mid season champion.

The last race of the night was the Invitational Pure Stock feature. Rodney Rutherford took over for Bill Rutherford and was on the pole along side Shawn Taylor. Taylor got out to an early lead but on lap six, Danny Shantz once again proved to be too much and took the lead and went 2 for 2 in features winning the invitational to close out the night.

Nice to see some new drivers and some “old” faces returning or in different rides. Pure Stocks: Rodney Rutherford, Courtney Scott, & Karl Sault, Mini Stocks: Blair Mayhew, Thunder Car: Darryn Wright and Late Model: Jeff Ruddy, Todd Campbell, & Gary Elliott.

Also congratulations to London Recreational Racing for a clean sweep in the big three features. Shawn Chenoweth won in the Thunder Cars and Late Models while Russ Aicken won the Mini Stock feature. Wonder when we’ll see some London Rec. sponsored cars in the Pro 4′s and Pure Stocks?!? Mike Schmidt also sponsors, Daniel Bois in the Lucas Oil Can Am Midget series, Andrew Kamrath in the Mini Stocks in Eastern Ontario, Andrew Gresel & Kelly Balson in the Sauble Falls Super Late Model series and Amanda Connolly in the Limited Late Model in Eastern Ontario.

Please make plans to join us next week, July 19th for another action packed and jammed packed night of racing. The Lucas Oil Sportsman Cup series returns with a 100 lap feature. They will also be joined by the Thunder Cars for Round three of six in the APC Delaware/Flamboro Thunder Car challenge. Two 25 lap features will be run. The Lucas Oil Canadian Vintage Modifieds are back as are the Ontario Pro Challenge series as they join the Klotz Auto Repair & Engine Machine Shop Mini Stocks.

Pit gates open at 2pm, Grandstands at 5pm and green flag flies at 6pm. Time Trials will be run at 5pm for the Lucas Oil Sportsman Cup series and the Thunder Car APC challange as well.
