Busy Sunday coming up at Cornwall Motor Speedway!
Cornwall, Ont – Friday, August 9, 2013 – Martin Bélanger – A busy Sunday ahead at Cornwall Motor Speedway with 6 feature races planned on the schedule as the Sportsman will have double feature with the June 23rd being completed, Modifieds, Pro-Stock, Semi-Pro and Mini-Stock will also be on the racing night sponsored by Cayer Motor Sales.
A great battle between two drivers should decide the point’s title in the Jiffy Auto Services Modified category as Luke Whitteker leads the way with 394 points, only ten points in front of veteran Mario Clair who decided to run Cornwall this season. Local runner Brian McDonald is having a nice season holding on third over Chris Raabe and Stephane Lafrance completes the top 5. A few drivers are knocking at the door for a place in the top 5 as Kayle Robidoux and Kyle Dingwall are less than 6 points from Lafrance. A 30-lap affair is schedule for Sunday.
An important night for the Storm Realty Tracy Wheeler Sportsman as two 20-lap feature race will be run with the June 23rd feature race being completed. The championship is really close as Chris Herbison and Joey Ladouceur are tied in first with 322 points with last Sunday`s winner, Corey Wheeler getting closer with only 4 points behind the leaders. With 5 events to be done until September, it will be interesting to follow this great battle!
A different scenario in the Alexandria Home Hardware Pro-Stock division as Dave Bissonnette has a 28-point edge over Roch Aubin and 62 on Jocelyn Roy. Bissonnette needs to show is common regularity and the championship should be his, with 4 nights of racing including a 20-lap finale on Sunday, there is a lot of action left in the Pro-Stock ranks.
Seeing little action so far in 2013, the Evans Bus Lines Semi-Pro is returning Sunday with a 15-lap feature. Three drivers are in direct competition for the title as 3-time winner in 2013, Derek Cryderman hold a slim 4-point margin over Kevin Fetterly and 6 points on Steve Billings. Nothing is decided yet as 3 features are left until September.
Being constant, is key to win a championship, Mike Gaucher is a great example, after winning 3 features in a row, he finished far in the field last week and the Baxtrom YIG Mini-Stock championship is now really tight as Gaucher only has a slight 3-point margin over Danny Lefebvre. Rookie contender Marc Reggentin is currently third. A special 25-lap feature is schedule for them on Sunday.
Pit Gates will open at 4:30pm with general admission opening at 5:30pm. The first heat is scheduled for 7pm. General Admission will costs 10$ with children 18 years and under only 2$, seniors 65 and over will be 5$ and Pit Admission will be $23. A really great deal to see 6 features in one night!
