Jordan McCreadie and David Hebert were on the top row of the Bandit Motorsports Canadian Nationals 125-lap finale. Hebert took a commanding lead over McCreadie with Tommy Flannigan running in third. Hebert slowed in turn 4 and caution came out on lap 14. On the restart, Gage Morin took the lead as Chris Raabe made his way to second with McCreadie sliding to third. A side by side battle occurred between Morin and Raabe for several laps. The caution is out as we had debris on the speedway on lap 42, McCreadie pulled his 9j machine in the infield at the same occasion. When the race was back in action the leaders quickly got into heavy traffic on lap 55 as Raabe pulled closer to Morin as Mike Bowman put his 71 machine into the infield and caution was out on lap 61. Action started back on lap 65 as Yan Bussiere and Roy Delormier came together in turn 1 and this brought up to the lap 75 pit stop.

The race resumed after the mandatory stop as both Morin and Raabe were back into battle for the lead as both drivers pulled away from the field and got to slower traffic, Mario Clair was able to get closer to both runners as an accident occurred on lap 92 in turn 2. When the green lights were back Morin stayed first. Raabe tried everything on Morin to pass him for the lead but the leader resisted as Carey Terrance made his way to the top 4 with less than 20-lap. A severe accident occurred with 7 laps to go send Michael Parent on his roof as Tommy Flannigan was also involved. On the restart, Carey Terrance moved up to third passing Clair. Tyler MacPherson and David Hebert got together below the flagstand bringing the race to a green-white-checker situation. Morin led the final race capturing this event for a second year in a row over Raabe who is crowned our 2016 track champion and Carey Terrance finishes third and wins the Bandit Motorsports Canadian Nationals.

Louie Jackson was the early leader in the DIRTcar Sportman/Race for the Cure Sportsman Series as point’s leader Shane Pecore moved up to second with Gabriel Cyr running in third. Martin Pelletier started to make some noise by lap 10 as he passed Cyr for third and found something on the high lane passing both Pecore and Jackson and got the lead on lap 18. Pelletier started to pull away from the field in heavy traffic as the feature picked up some great momentum. Pelletier had Jackson on his back bumper with 15 lap to go. Pelletier brushed off the challenges from Jackson and collected the win over Jackson and Pecore. By finishing third, Pecore will leave Cornwall with the track championship as well as the Race for the Cure championship.

The Alexandria Home Pro-Stock division closed the evening with a 25-lap event, in which we saw several leaders, it is the veteran driver Dave Bissonnette that was able to seal the deal by winning the event. After waiting a total of 16 years, Stephane Lebrun is finally the track champion at Cornwall!

Spectacular championship ending this Sunday at Cornwall Motor Speedway!

Cornwall, Ont –Wednesday, August 31, 2016 – Martin Bélanger – It will be an epic night at Cornwall Motor Speedway this coming Sunday as we will crown 10 different track and series champions along with several important races for our local drivers. A very busy evening that will consists of the Bandit Motorsports Canadian Nationals Modified Series in conjunction with the DIRTcar 358-Modified Series, The Race for the Cure Sportsman Series along with the DIRTcar Sportsman Series, Street Stock invitational, Pro-Stock, Novice Sportsman and Mini-Stock.

Modified drivers will have a lot on the line for the final event of the season, with the Bandit Motorsports Canadian Nationals, DIRTcar 358-Modified Series and track championship all ending, the pressure will be on for three of our local drivers in Chris Raabe, the new leader after his win during the last event we had, Raabe has a 4-point edge over Carey Terrance and Mario Clair is well positioned being 1 small point behind Terrance. With probably the toughest field of the season on hand for the 125-lap event that will also count for the DIRTcar Series, the trio will need to be strong right off the time trial sessions in order to secure a good qualifying spot. Currently leading both the Canadian Nationals and DIRTcar Series in points, Erick Rudolph will want to continue his great run that could enable him towards championship, the Ramsomville, NY drivers should be accompanied by some of the best talent of the Niagara region that will add to already strong field of invaders coming from Ontario, Quebec and the Northern New-York area.

The final round of the first edition of the Race for the Cure Sportsman Series will be run this Sunday with a 50-lap feature event, Shane Pecore currently holds a 15-point margin over Martin Pelletier and 18 points on Tyler Givogue. This series has been really popular so far with 28 drivers still in the hunt for the GM Crate Engine perfect attendance draw sponsored by Seaway GM. An average of 34 cars has attended both events that has seen some of the best talent in the area. This average will certainly go up with the DIRTcar Sportsman Series being run at the same occasion of our local series, current point’s leader, Brad Rouse and American driver Chris Cunningham should make the haul to Cornwall for this event. Nearly 40 cars had already signed up last Sunday when the thunderstorm hit the speedway.

The Alexandria Home Hardware Pro-Stock will have 25-lap for the occasion. This division has offered some of the greatest racing of the season at several times. The championship race will be one to watch between Stephane Lebrun and Rock Aubin, following his latest win, Lebrun has taken the lead with a slim 4-point distance over Aubin.

Again a lot of interest for the Street Stock Invitational, some of the best competitors from Brockville and the area will make the haul for the 25-lap event paying $300 to win. The Mini-Stock and Novice Sportsman will close out the evening having a regular program.
Nearly $20,000 in prizes will be given out throughout the evening for perfect attendees in the regular season, the Canadian Nationals and the Race for the Cure Sportsman. Draws will occur before the pit meeting and also during intermission time.

Because of a busy evening the racing will start earlier, hot laps will be on track at 5:15pm, time trials are scheduled for 5:45pm with both Modified and Sportsman having sessions and qualifying will begin at 6pm. General admission will cost 30$ for adults, 15$ for Senior and kids 16 and under, only 2$ with gates opening at 2pm. The pit area will open their doors at noon with admission being priced at 40$. We are expecting to break the 120-car attendance pretty easily for Sunday.
