Ladouceur Secures Title On Opening Night Of Fall Nationals

By OntarioOval.com – Near freezing temperatures greeted the teams of the Go Nuclear Late Models Series and DIRTcar Pro Stocks Tour on Friday night at Brockville Ontario Speedway for night one of the 1000 Islands RV Centre DIRTcar Northeast Fall Nationals. Both tours competed in their final events for 2012 and that meant championship hardware was on the line.

Defending champion Joey Ladouceur charged through the field and gave LeBrun a run for his money, but would come up one position short for the win. The runner-up position was enough to secure his second straight series crown over Rob Yetman who finished 7th. Completing the top five behind LeBrun and Ladouceur at the line were George Renaud, Dave Seguin and Richard Bertrand.

The title was also up for grabs in the Go Nuclear Late Model Series as Dale Caswell, Greg Belyea and Tim Sears entered the event with a chance to become champion. Caswell would once again flex his muscle and drive to the front to capture his third win of the season, locking up the championship. Adam Turner drove a smart race and avoided a late race pileup to take second while AJ Kingsley, Mark Rayner and Mat Vanderlinden rounded out the top five.

DIRTcar Northeast Series Take To Brockville Quarter-Mile

DIRTcar Northeast Series Take To Brockville Quarter-Mile

Series Competitors Prepare for Short Track after Tackling Syracuse’s “Moody Mile” 

BROCKVILLE, ONTARIO – Oct. 11, 2012 – The Thousand Islands RV Fall Nationals gets ready to roll this weekend, Friday, Oct. 12, through Sunday, Oct. 14, at Brockville Ontario Speedway, as three DIRTcar Northeast traveling tours come to a close, and one, the Super DIRTcar Series, gears up for Peak Motor Oil World of Outlaws World Finals Presented by NAPA Auto Parts in November.

The Pro Stock Series takes to Brockville’s quarter-mile Friday, the 358-Modified Series Saturday, and the Sportsman Modified and Super DIRTcar Series Sunday. Just coming off of NAPA Auto Parts Super DIRT Week in Syracuse, competitors in all four series are ramping up their short-track game after just having spent a week on the longest track they will face this season, the “Moody Mile” at the New York State Fairgrounds.

“We went from the biggest track we run on all year to probably one of the smallest,” said Super DIRTcar Series Big-Block Modified driver Jimmy Phelps, currently second in points for the series. “We’re going to have to try and get ourselves into the short track mode again in a hurry.”

In addition to hoping for an opportunity to challenge point leader Matt Sheppard at Sunday’s race, Phelps is also looking forward to putting on a good race for the fans at Brockville Ontario Speedway.

“The fans are great up there and it’s typically a pretty fun place to race,” Phelps said. “It’s small, it’s tight, it’s a bull ring. When the track’s racy, with short tracks like that, they’re fun to race on.”

Brockville Speedway’s DIRTcar Fall Nationals Continue To Grow

Brockville Speedway’s DIRTcar Fall Nationals Continue To Grow

Canada’s Premiere Dirt Racing Festival Begins Friday

October 6, 2012 – Brockville, ON – Canada’s biggest annual fall racing festival continues to grow as the 2012 edition of the Thousand Islands RV Fall Nationals gets ready to roll at Brockville Ontario Speedway October 12 to 14th. The event will see an expanded line up for this year with the Go Nuclear Late Model series and the T-USA Mod Lites now part of the fall festival of speed in the beautiful Thousand Islands region.

They join the 358 and Big Block Modifieds, Sprint Cars, Sportsman, Pro Stock and Sportsman as three different DIRTcar championship series come to a close at the fast quarter mile, Beast of the East.

Promoters Paul and Cheryl Kirland have been amazed by the corporate support for this year’s event as many local and regional businesses have stepped to sponsor various parts of the weekend including putting a few more dollars right into the hands of drivers by sponsoring all heat races along with bonuses in some features.  These folks include Napa Auto Parts, King Edward Auto Parts, Splash Well Drilling, Trailer Country, Doug Jelly of Cobblestone Realty, Brighton Speedway, Pastime Motors, Valley Sales and Equipment and ET Performance.   To make room for more cars, more teams and more fans, Tackaberry Construction has been hard at work adding to pit area and the road that leads to the Thousand Island RV park, which by the way is half way to being sold out with a week to go. More food and retail vendors will also be on site for the weekend.

Full Fender Friday gets the weekend kicked off in style on October 12 with the final race in the 2012 Pro Stock tour plus the Go Nuclear Late Model series.  Time Trails for the Pro Stocks shift things into high gear at 6:40 with the green flag set for 7 pm.  Small Block Saturday will once again feature the final event in the 2012 358 Modified championship chase along with an open 360 sprint car event and for the first time the T-USA Mod Lite machines.  Time Trials kick things off at 12:15 with the heats going at 1 pm.  Roast Beef on a bun will served at the 1000 Islands RV post race party with the Texas Tuxedos providing the entertainment on Saturday night. Big Block Sunday puts a wrap on the 2012 Beast of the East schedule as Modifieds best try to position themselves heading to Charlotte for the World Finals.  The final event of the DIRTcar Sportsman tour, which includes many Brockville area competitors vying for the title and the Street Stocks are also part of Sundays events.  Time Trials start at 11:30 with racing getting going at 1pm.

The 1000 island Rv Fall Nationals are presented by Bob-fm, Ckws-tv, the Brockville Recorder and Times and Comfort Inn Brockville.

Pat O’Brien Charges To Win #2 Of 2012 At Brockville

Pat O’Brien Charges To Win #2 Of 2012 At Brockville

Points were the theme of the night and with very tight battles in the 358 Modifed and Rookie division anything was bound to happen and it surely did.

In the 358 Modifieds the championship battle was on between Lee Gill and Kyle Dingwall as they came into the night separated but a mere 8 points. John Mulder and Andy Lloyd led the field to the green with Lloyd grabbing the top spot heading into turn 1. Lloyd would lead the opening 4 laps until 5 time track champion Pat O’Brien soared by Lloyd to take over the top spot. Once in front O’Brien built up a full straightaway advantage just before the halfway point of the 30 lap affair. Behind him the battle was on as Kyle Dingwall charged from his 8th starting spot to grab 2nd from Brian McDonald, meanwhile Lee Gill was struggling at the back of the pack as he broke into the top 10 just past the halfway point with a long way to go to catch Dingwall. O’Brien continued his dominant run up front entering lapped traffic with 10 laps to go. Dingwall was smooth and steady throughout the entire 30 lap distance and narrowed the lead gap by 4 car lengths with 1 lap to go. In the end Pat O’Brien was hang on for his 2nd win of the season and 148th in his DIRTCar 358 Modified career. Kyle Dingwall came home 2nd good enough to secure his first ever Brockville Ontario Speedway Modified title. Matt Billings, Stephane Lafrance and Dale Planck rounded out the top 5. Lee Gill started 14th and would come home in the 6th position but lost out on what would have been his 5th track championship by 2 points.

With the Sportsman track title locked up by Chris Herbison points were no issue as it was down to business to try and grab the feature win. Jonathan Ferguson grabbed the early race lead from the pole with Brian Comeau, Jason Shipclark, Tabatha Murphy and Ryan Arbuthnot rounding out the top 5 in the early going. Several caution flags plagued the 25 lap event as early on Mruphy made contact with Shipclark sending her up the speedway in turn 4 and clipping a fast closing Herbison who nearly flipped over. Herbison would rejoin at the tail of the field. On the restart Ferguson kept his foot to the floor opening up another full straightaway advantage on the rest of the field. But the man on the move was 2010 champion Dylan Evoy. Searching for his division leading 7th win of the season he motored to the top side of the speedway and began to make a charge forward getting by Jason Shipclark for 2nd with just 7 laps remaining. Evoy then ran down the leader and coming off turn 4 with the white flag waving Evoy powered by Ferguson to grab the lead and hang out for his 7th win of 2012 with Ferguson, Shipclark, Comeau and Dana Aikins rounding out the top 5.

It was time for the Rookie division to take to the track. Points were the story here as Joe McNichols and Dwight Feltham came into the night separated by 18 points. Randy Massey and Brandon Henderson led the field to the green with Massey jumping out front early on. Massey was on a mission on this night as he began to open up a big lead on the field but 5 time winner this year Quincy Roberts made his way to the lead just past the halfway point. A Scary wreck in turn 1 early in the event saw Eric Snyder jump the bank in turn 1 flipping 5 times before coming to rest on his wheels. Snyder would quickly get out of the car uninjured. Problems occurred shortly after that for the points leader McNichols as he broke in turn 4 after contact with another competitor sending him pitside. McNichols would return to the track but was many laps down. Dwight Feltham also made his way forward but under the 2nd caution flag on lap 9 he had a tire go flat. He would return to the speedway and make a charge from the back of the pack. Up in front Roberts was on cruise control gunning for another win. But with 2 to go Roberts got too high in turn 3 sliding off the speedway bringing out the yellow again. This left Corbin Miller in front on the last restart. Miller would power away and grab his 2nd win of the 2012 season with Chris Bakker, Scott McGill, Kurtis Daye and Dwight Feltham rounding out the top 5. Feltham’s 5th place run was enough to grab the 2012 track title by 6 points over McNichols.

In Street Stock action Kevin Fetterly Jr. became just the 2nd driver to 3 straight titles since Jack Code did it in 2005, 2006 and 2007. With points out of the question John Gifford took full advantage of his pole position as he motored out in front of the field with Kevin Fetterly Jr., and Derrick Eaton giving chase. Caution flew on lap 5 for Brock Cullen who made contact with Alex Gagnon and Steve Billings sending him into the front stretch wall. On the restart Gifford continued his strong drive looking for his 1st career win. Steve Billings and last weeks winner Alex Gagnon were also on the move as they charged from the back of the field to move into 3rd and 4th with just 5 laps to go. The final caution came out for Barry baker who lost a tire on the back stretch. On the final restart Gifford was able to hold a comfortable lead over Fetterly and would go on to collect his first career Street Stock victory. Fetterly, Billings, Gagnon and Travis Andrews rounded out the top 5.

The Vintage title was all but wrapped up as points leader Paul Billings had a 48 point lead over Denzil Billings Jr. Graham Drew and Brandon Gregory led the field to the green with Gregory getting the lead away in turn 1. Gregory would power away from Drew by 6 car lengths by lap 5 when the caution came out for points leader Paul Billings as he broke a front end on his machine. On the restart Gregory led the way but Jason Powers had a game plan. After Starting in 7th he made his way to 2nd and with a power move down low was able to grab the lead with 5 laps remaining. Once in front nobody was stopping Powers on this night as he drove on to his division leading 4th win of 2012. Steve Arbuthnot rebounded for an early race accident to finish 2nd with Drew, Gregory and Denzil Billings Jr. completing the top 5. Despite his early race accident Billings was able to secure his first ever Vintage Modified title.

The BOS gets back underway in 2 weeks time as Kane’s Towing presents the annual Monster Enduro on Sunday September 16. Racing begins at 2pm.

Gill, Evoy, Gagnon, Day & Barger Score Wins At The BOS

It was another great night of racing at “The BOS” and with the Patriot Sprint Tour on hand for the 2nd time it was sure to be an exciting night.

The Patriot Sprint Tour rolled out onto the speedway and Dain Naida was the class of the field in the early going. On Lap 3 the first yellow flag flew as Paul Pekkonen broke a front end in turn 3. The green returned and Naida stayed in the top spot and started to pull away from the rest of the field with Jamie Collard and Lee Ladouceur giving chase. On lap 8 Kyle Fraser slowed to a stop on the back stretch. On the front stretch under yellow Keith Dempster and April Wilson made contact sending Wilson upside down. Wilson was able to walk away however the car was heavily damaged. On the restart Justin Barger was the man on the move. After starting 10th he made his move to the top side and grabbed the lead on lap 11 from Naida off of turn 4. Barger was on a rail on this night and despite 2 late race cautions and a hard charging Naida, Barger pulled out to a straightaway lead for his 3rd win of the season with Alain Bergeron, Jared Zimbardi and Lee Ladouceur rounding out the top 5.

The 358 Modifieds were set for battle and it became a classic battle between 2 of the best in track history. Lee Gill Started in the 5th spot and was able to work his way to the lead by lap 5 from from early pace setter John Mulder. Danny O’Brien was looking save what has been a season of struggles as he worked his way to the 2nd spot just before the halfway point. From there Gill and O’Brien put on a great show for the fans. Both drivers worked the top side of the speedway until lapped traffic came into play with 10 to go. This allowed Dale Planck, the points leader, to work his way into the 3rd spot and immediately chase down the top 2 drivers. Gill was able to work through the traffic perfectly and pull away by 4 car lengths for his 3rd win of the season over Danny O’Brien, Planck, Bryan Rogers, and 5 time track champion Pat O’Brien.

The Sportsman division saw a pair of lady driver battle for the top spot in the early going. Tabatha Murphy jumped out to the early race lead and would hold off Kenny Polite for the top spot. Jessica Power started in 6th and made her way forward as well. On lap 6 Power made the move taking the lead away open up a sizeable advantage on the rest of the field. Dylan Evoy was on the move on this night. After starting 16th he used the top side of the speedway and moved through the field quickly to grab the lead from Power down the front stretch. Evoy was looking to keep his great season going as he pulled out to a full straightaway lead just past the halfway point. Chris Herbison the defending track champion was also charging forward and made it to 2nd with just 10 laps remaining. However Evoy was just too strong as he sailed home for his 6th win and 2nd in a row in 2012. Jessica Power came home 3rd with Steve Barber and Kenny Polite rounding out the top 5.

In Street Stock action Alex Gagnon has had nothing go right for him at Brockville in 2012. With handling and motor issues Gagnon needed a good run to get some confidence back. After starting on the outside pole he grabbed the lead early on with Barry Baker, Travis Andrews, Derrick Eaton and Kevin Fetterly Jr., rounding out the top 5. With the race going 15 laps caution free and Alex Gagnon having the fastest car on the track, nobody was going to stop him enroute to his first win since July. 10 of the 2010 season with Guy Regimbald coming home 2nd, Nick Gauvreau, Kevin Fetterly Jr., and Travis Andrews rounding out the top 5.

In the Rookie division Ron Day was on a mission on this night. He started on the pole and quickly pulled out to a commanding lead. Ron Day has gone winless in 3 years and was poised to make a run at career win #2 but Chris James had other ideas. James was able to run down the leader and grab the lead on lap 8. With James out in front Day was left to battle with Dwight Feltham, Quincy Roberts, and Michael Blais. With 3 laps left heading into turn 3 James drove into the turn too hard and spun off the speedway. On the final restart Day was able to hold off Feltham and a last corner charge by John Stanley to recored the popular win with Feltham Roberts and Blais rounding out the top 5.

Next week the Brockville Recorder and Times along with the United Way will present the final points night for all divisions. The green flag drops at 7pm.

Evoy Nips Aikins At The Line By .004 Seconds At Brockville

Evoy Nips Aikins At The Line By .004 Seconds At Brockville

August, 18, 2012 – BROCKVILLE-Dana Aikins is less than .01 seconds away from two straight feature wins in the Sportsman division at Brockville Ontario Speedway. However, the Alexandria Bay driver is still looking for his first Beast of the East feature win in 2012 after being nipped at the finish line on the final lap by .004 seconds for the second straight week this time by Brockville’s Dylan Evoy. It was the exact same margin Aikins fell to Chris Herbison by the week before.

Ryan Comeau dominated the early stages of the 25 lap Sportsman event before yielding the lead to Aikins. Aikins was in good shape until Evoy started to close in and take the lead from him briefly. Dana made a beautiful move on lap 24 using a lapped car as a pick to pull ahead by a couple of car lengths. But Evoy charged from the very top of the speedway in turn 4 to pull back alongside and leave who actually won to the electronic scoring system because no one else could tell who came across the line first. Doug O Blenis was third in front of Chris Herbison and John Mills.

The 30 lap Modified main event went green to checkered. Brockville’s Matt Billings had to try time after time to get past early leader Brian MacDonald as the two cars even bumped twice. Billings finally grabbed the top spot and sped away to his second win of 2012 in the family owned Bicknell. Danny O Brien was on the charge from way back in the field from the start and settled for second followed by Kyle Dingwall, MacDonald and Lee Gill.

There was a brand new face in victory lane in the Rookie 15 lap main as Corbin Miller picked up his first feature win ever at Brockville. The youngster led the entire distance holding off points leader Joe McNichols in the closing laps. Bob Ray, Dwight Feltham and Chris Bakker, were third through fifth respectively. Danny Mocibob used the Miller model in the Street Stock event,also leading every lap en route to the win despite a spirited battle with Brock Cullen. Alex Gagnon, Kevin Fetterly Jr and Guy Regimbald rounded out the fast five. The race was red flagged on lap 3 when Barry Baker rolled hard in turn 1 after losing a wheel. Baker was able to get out of the car under his own steam. Dave Wilgosh scored his first win since 2010 when he drove a Sportsman car, taking the 12 lap Vintage race also leading the distance. Jason Powers late challenge wasnt enough as he finished second followed by Denzil Billings, Josh Powers and Paul Billings.

Brockville Ontario Speedway returns to action next Saturday night, August 25th with the second appearance of the Patriot Sprint Cars along with the regular divisions in action. The green flag drops at 7 pm.

Herbison Nips Aikins At The Line For Dramatic Win At Brockville

Herbison Nips Aikins At The Line For Dramatic Win At Brockville

BROCKVILLE-It was only a blink of an eye. However, it was lots for Chris Herbison and not quite enough for Dana Aikins as the two went toe to toe on Saturday night in the 25 lap Sportsman feature at Brockville Ontario Speedway. The defending track champion and current points leader from Brockville nipped Aikins who had led almost every lap by .005 of a second at the finish line.

Aikins got out to an early lead and at times was able to pull away from Herbison, who quickly worked his way into contention after starting deep in the field. However, Herbison would nip away finally taking the lead briefly on lap 24. Aikins took it back in turn 2, Herbison led again in turn 3 on the final circuit before Aikins mounted a final charge on the outside coming off turn 4 just coming up short. Dylan Evoy finished third in front of John Mills and Sheldon Hoogwerf.

Danny O Brien has been either at the front of the pack or near the back all season. The 10 time BOS track champ from Kingston was at the front and on the gas this night in scoring his 3rd Modified feature win of 2012. O Brien led by a half lap at one point before a restart with four to go bunched up the field. O Brien dashed away again from Dale Planck for the victory with Bobby Herrington, Kyle Dingwall and Pat O Brien rounding out the top five.

Defending Street Stock champ Kevin Fetterly Jr of Messena NY was back in the winners circle for the first time since June as he went wire to wire in the 15 lapper. Nick Gauvreau settled for second ahead of Derek Cryderman, Danny Mocibob and Travis Andrews. The Rookie feature came down to a car length at the checkered with Brockville’s Josh Kirkland, leading all 15 circuits and holding off a late challenge from Dwight Feltham. John Stanley, Chris Bakker and Joe McNicholls were third through fifth respectively.

Brockville Ontario Speedway returns to action next Saturday night, August 18th with a full race program plus the vintage cars. The green flag drops at 7 pm.

Planck & Herbison Take Huge Step Towards Titles At Brockville

Planck & Herbison Take Huge Step Towards Titles At Brockville

BROCKVILLE-It was the chance for rivals to make up points on the leaders in the championship chase at Brockville Ontario Speedway. However, Modified points leader Dale Planck and Sportsman head honcho Chris Herbison had very different ideas on Saturday night’s Coca-Cola, Bob-FM Triple Double night. They made the most out of double points, double purse and double laps both winning their respective events and taking a stranglehold on track titles.

Planck’s trip to victory lane in the 60 lap Modified main event was anything but a breeze. Once the field settled down after 3 restarts to get the first lap in, the race was a two car battle between Planck and Kingston’s Pat O Brien. O Brien threw everything he had at Planck especially in the final ten circuits get alongside the 77 a couple of times, but couldn’t get past the points leader. Lee Gill, who spun early in the event after tangling with a lapped car, roared back through the field for a third place run followed by Bobby Herrington and Kyle Dingwall.

Herbison’s race was another story as he dominated the 50 lap event until the final restart. Second place finisher Dylan Evoy got his chance to overhaul the Brockville driver, but to no avail as again Herbison pulled away for the victory and all but clinched the track crown in the process. Steve Barber was third in front of Bruce Makinson and Jessica Power.

Cornwall’s Derek Cryderman upped his winning streak to four straight as he took the 30 lap Street Stock main. Cryderman battled for a couple of laps with Nick Gauvreau before pulling away for a convincing victory. Early leader Travis Andrews was third with Derrick Eaton and Kevin Fetterly Jr. in tow.

Quincy Roberts of Carleton Place went back to back in the 30 lap Rookie race. Roberts held off a late charge from points leader Joe McNichols for the triumph. Dwight Feltham, Colin Tracey and Josh Kirkland were third through fifth respectively. Steve Arbuthnot of Renfrew went wire to wire in capturing the 24 lap Vintage event in close out the night. Paul Billings, who got alongside Arbuthnot a couple of times settled for second in front of Jason Powers, Denzil Billings Jr, and Josh Powers.

Brockville Ontario Speedway returns to action, next Saturday night, August 11th with a full program plus the annual visit from the stars of the future. The tracks Wednesday night Go Karters will make an appearance to showcase their talents. The green flag drops at 7 pm.

Ferguson Shocks Sportsman Field At Brockville

Ferguson Shocks Sportsman Field At Brockville

BROCKVILLE, ON – On a night where the first four members were inducted into the Brockville Ontario Speedway Hall of Fame, it was a local teenager that stole the show. Rookie Johnathon Ferguson scored his first ever Sportsman feature win on Saturday night at the Beast of the East.

Ferguson and Jessica Power started on the front row of the 25 lap event with the youngster leading almost every lap as Power was able to briefly nudge in front on an early restart. The youngster, however, would not be denied as he calmly and methodically held onto the top spot by a car length or two the rest of the way for a very popular victory and a rather large celebration on the front straight. Power was second in front of Steve Barber, Ryan Poole and John Mills.

Lee Gill prevailed for the second time in three weeks in the 30 lap Modified main event. Gill picked up the top spot from Bobby Herrington around the midway point and zoomed away from the field. Pat O Brien made some nifty moves to pick up the runner up spot but didnt have time to catch the number 7. Tim O Brien was third followed by Danny O Brien and points leader Dale Planck, who charged from the back after an early spin to finish fifth.

The Mod-Lites made their second appearance of the year at Brockville with Paul Klager holding off Brian Green late in the race for the victory, Jeff May was a strong third. Derek Cryderman made it 3 wins in 3 weeks in the Street Stock division taking the 15 lap run over Kevin Fetterly Jr, Brock Cullen, Derrick Eaton and Beau Miller. Quincy Roberts continues to turn heads in the Rookie class scoring another victory. He didn’t manage to pick up many points on leader Joe McNichols who was second followed by first timer Justin Desrosier, Dwight Feltham and Chris Bakker.

During the intermission, the first four members of the Napa Auto Parts Hall of Fame were introduced legendary drivers Marcel LaFrance, Dave Heaslip and Tony Blake were joined by builder Bob Lodge in the first class voted in by the local race fans via a Finish Line Web Design poll.

BOB-Fm and Coca-Cola present the turning point in the points chase next Saturday night, August 5th at 7 pm. It will be double night at the track with double the laps, 60 laps for the Modifieds, 50 for the Sportsman and 30 for both the Rookies and Street Stocks.

Dingwall Wins Second Of Bounce Back Season At Brockville

Dingwall Wins Second Of Bounce Back Season At Brockville

BROCKVILLE-Brockville’s Kyle Dingwall had already served notice that he had returned as a force in the Modified division at Brockville Ontario Speedway. Dingwall solidified that a little more on Saturday night scoring his second feature win of the season at the Beast of the East on Tackaberry Construction Night.

It was a wild night for the Modifieds with two violent flips, Bobby Herrington took a points hit as he rolled in turn two in hot laps while Stephane LaFrance went end over end in turn 3 in a multi car wreck early in the feature event. Both drivers were able to walk away after the incidents. Adam Turner turned some heads getting out to an early lead before finally yielding the top spot to Pat O Brien. However, O Brien would not hold onto the top spot for long as Dingwall pulled alongside and using the inside groove took the top spot for good before pulling away by a full straightaway by the finish. Lee Gill charged from the back after being involved in the LaFrance wreck to grab second followed by Pat and then Tim O Brien. Turner rounded out the top five.

Dylan Evoy was as dominant in the Sportsman ranks as Dingwall was in the Modifieds. The Brockville teenager picked up his fourth win of the season as he got to the front in quick order finally taking the lead from Ryan Poole and speeding away from everyone. The key decision was hopping up to the top of the track that allowed him to pass the three lead cars on the same lap. Jason Shipclark put in his best Brockville run ever in second with Bruce Makinson, Poole and Dana Aikins making up the fast five.

The return of the 420 continued in the Street Stocks as Derek Cryderman won his second in a row after returning from a horrible wreck a month ago, Derrick Eaton was a solid second with Steve Billings, Danny Mocibob and birthday boy John Gifford in tow. The Rookie 15 lapper came down to a photo finish followed by a red flag Brighton invader Justin Ramsay managed to barely hold off Joe McNichols coming to the checkered. Ramsay, in trying to control his car after a turn 4 bump in turn got into Geneva Sheffield sending her into the inside concreate barrier. Sheffield also managed to walk away from a heavy hit. Travis McLean was third in front of John Stanley and Jeff Humphry. Jason Powers took vintage honours over Paul Billings, Dave Wilgosh, Steve Arthbutnot and Denzil Billings.

Brockville Ontario Speedway returns to action next Saturday night, July 28th with Napa Auto Parts Night.

Murphy & Stanley Earn First Career Brockville Wins

Murphy & Stanley Earn First Career Brockville Wins

By Craig Revelle – Finish Line Web Design

BROCKVILLE – The continuous trend of 2012 has been the hot and humid weather, and that continued this week as Brockville Ontario Speedway hosted the always-popular Patriot Sprint Tour, along with the 358 Modifieds, Sportsman, Street Stocks and Rookies on Jim’s Performance Plus night.

A packed grandstand witnessed some great racing in all divisions, with two drivers earning their first career victories. They also witnessed another driver return to Brockville Speedway victory lane for the first time in nearly ten years.

The first feature to hit the track was the Street Stocks, as they battled for 15 laps. Darrick Eaton took the lead early, but it Derrick Cryderman that came out on top in his first race back at the BOS since destroying his car in a horrific accident on the front straightaway over a month ago. Kevin Fetterly finished with a strong second place finish with Guy Regimbald, Nick Gauvreau and Travis Andrews rounding out the top five.

The Patriot Sprint Tour was next to hit the track for their 25 lap A-main. Jamie Collard and Devin Caron led the field to the green flag, and after a slow start with a pair of cautions before they completed lap 1, the full distance went green to checkers with Collard getting the win over Caron, Jared Zimbardi, Scott Kreutter and Justin Barger who made it back into the top five after sliding off the track earlier in the race.

The 25 lap Sportsman feature had fans on their feet with an exciting battle throughout the race with fan favorite Tabatha Murphy taking the lead on lap 18 after a great battle for several laps with Doug O’Blenis. A caution one lap later produced an intense battle, with both drivers looking for their first BOS Sportsman feature wins, while veteran Sheldon Hoogwerf was looking to get his first of the season. Murphy held off a late race charge from Hoogwerf to get the win, with Ryan Arbuthnot, O’Blenis and reigning champion Chris Herbison rounding out the top five.

A huge wreck on lap one of the Modified feature had a major impact on the night for several key players in the battle for the 2012 championship. Point leader Dale Planck was unable to continue after the opening lap melee, as was 10 time BOS champion Danny O’Brien. The incident also involved Bobby Herrington, Luke Stewart, Pat O’Brien, and Jeff Ciglich. When the race resumed it was Matt Billings getting the lead early, but Lee Gill was making his presence known as he was quickly moving up from his eighth place starting position and was soon challenging Billings for the top spot. Gill made the winning move on lap 14 and cruised to his first Brockville Speedway feature win since returning to the BOS this season after nearly 10 years away from the Modified division.

The final race of the evening was the 4cylinder Rookie Division, and it was another first time winner as John Stanley took home the top honors after a more then his share of bad luck early in 2012.

The BOS is back in action on Saturday night, July 21st as Tackaberry Construction presents a full show of Modifieds, Sportsman, Street Stocks, Rookies and the McNamee Concrete Vintage Modifieds. Gate open at 5pm, racing gets underway promptly at 7pm.

O’Brien Returns To Victory Lane At Brockville Ontario Speedway

O’Brien Returns To Victory Lane At Brockville Ontario Speedway

BROCKVILLE, ON – When you are a 10 time track champion a two month drought might seem like ages. Kingston’s Danny O’Brien served notice that there’s still lots of fight in his 17d machine as he motored to his first win since opening night on Saturday at Brockville Ontario Speedway.

O’Brien started on the outside pole for the 30 lap 358 Modified event, and led each and every circuit of the event that went 19 laps before the first caution. Things got a little more interesting after that yellow flag as Stephane LaFrance, who had taken a very popular win in the ATC 10 lap dash earlier in the evening, challenged the pocket rocket for the top spot. However, the cagey veteran pulled away on each restart for the win. Points leader Dale Planck started slow but went from fourth to second on the final lap with an outside pass coming off turn 4 for the runner up spot in front of LaFrance, Matt Billings and Pat O’Brien.

Dylan Evoy of Brockville picked up his second checkered flag in as many nights in the 25 lap Sportsman main. Evoy flew through early traffic finally getting by a very impressive Kenny Polite with four laps remaining for the win. Chris Herbison, who spun on lap 2 came back through the field nipping Polite, who led the first 21 trips around, in the closing laps for second. Dana Aikins and Steve Barber were fourth and fifth respectively.

The revolving door of winners in the Street Stock wars continues as Brock Cullen went wire to wire in their 15 lap event. John Gifford held off a hornet’s nest behind him for second followed by Steve Kearney, Guy Reginbald and Kevin Fetterly Jr. Quincy Roberts returned from a week off to repair extensive damage to his 71 car to take Rookie honours over Dwight Feltham, Ron Day, Corbin Miller and Brandon Henderson. Jason Powers snagged top spot in the Vintage finale over Denzil Billings Jr, Paul Billings, Dave Wilgosh and Brian Comeau
