Martin Pelletier new champion of the Bandit Motorsports Sportsman Challenge!

Cornwall, Ont – Monday, August 10, 2015 – Martin Bélanger – We now know one champion at Cornwall Motor Speedway, his name is Martin Pelletier! He is the champion of the new Bandit Motorsports Sportsman Challenge that was created this season.

Consistency was key for Pelletier as he never finished worse than 6th in all four feature events and also collected some valuable points in the qualifying rounds without winning any feature as he was crowned the first recipient of the Sportsman Challenge sponsored by Bandit Motorsports. Pelletier finished in front by a slight 5 points margin over the third race winner, Corey Wheeler. Jessica Power who had three top 5 in the first 3 events completed the top 3 finishing with 14 points behind Pelletier. Louie Jackson with four top 8 and Mathieu Desjardins with 2 wins in the series, completes the top 5.

Pelletier will collect a nice $1,000 for his championship, with Wheeler receiving $750, Power $500 as both Jackson and Desjardins will get a 2016 Cornwall Motor Speedway, season pass.

The series was strong in the car count with an average of 35 cars per event, some of the best in the business with several track champions and having some drivers that are already in double digits in the win column in 2015 with Pelletier and Desjardins. This made for great racing in each race.

There are still 2 big events for the Sportsman this year at Cornwall with the Seaway-Lussier Sportsman Series on August 23rd, another strong series with Pelletier looking to win a second local series title leading over Pecore and Alex Lajoie, this series is average 36 cars per event after 4 races. Probably the most important race for many drivers will be on September 6, when the DIRTcar Sportsman Series will make a stop at Cornwall with a 50-lap event, Desjardins, currently leads this series that includes 15 other nights all over the DIRTcar circuit.
