Spring Fever Blues Shakedown Day Two At Flamboro Speedway

By Randy Spencer – Day two of the Spring Fever Blues Shakedown got under way Sunday afternoon with feature racing after qualifying Saturday.
The Grisdale Late Models were on hand and would run two thirty lap features. The first one had Junior Farrelly and David Elliott on the pole for the thirty lap main event. Nineteen cars took the green and Elliott got out to the early lead. The race ran clean and Elliott led all the way. On the final lap however, the 9 of Jeff Ruddy and 27 of Kevin Albers got involved heading into turns one and two and brought out the caution and the race ended under yellow. The 39 of Corey Jones got the black flag for rough driving. It was an unfortunate end for Ruddy who was running second most of the race but Shawn Chenoweth got by Ruddy on lap 25.
The Flamboro Stadium & Speedway Hall of Fame Pure Stocks. Wayde Thorne and Lofton Schuts led the field to green. The 7 of Matt Young went high through three and four on lap 9 bringing out the caution. On the restart Thorne couldn’t hold the lead and Andy Wheller got by followed by Josh Shantz. Another caution on lap 23 brought the field back to even. On the restart Shantz got by Wheller to take the lead and pick up the checkered flag.
The Klotz Auto Repair & Engine Machine Shop Mini Stocks were next for their 40 lap feature. Russ Aicken and Shawn Taylor were on the pole for this one. They battled early but Taylor’s bad luck continued and he fell off the pace. Aiken however has had good luck of late and he ran away and hid from the rest of the field on this day. He pretty much dominated and lapped the entire field except for the 61 of Chad Ditner and 07 of Michael Kenny on his way to yet another feature win.
The Rays Auto Centre & Towing Thunder Cars were up next for the first of their two 20 lap features on the day. Shawn Arnott also has dominated of late and he got out to a good lead. The real battle was for second and third however as Brad Collison and Chris Howse battled. On lap 12 as the cars made their way out of turn two, the 36 of Hudson Nagy got into Collison bringing out the caution and Nagy was shown the black flag and made his way to the rear of the field. As the race continued so did Arnotts domination and he rolled to an easy feature win.
The Pro Four Modifieds hit the track for their feature event and Dan Nanticoke also dominated and ran away from the field. But an engine issue forced him to the infield and a DNF. Veteran Dave Hodgkinson found his way to the front and one of the original drivers in the Pro Fours picked up a checkered flag. Nice to see Dave back in Victory Lane!!
The OSCAAR Midgets were next Richard Woodland, Brian Woodland and James Stanley took off from the rest of the pack. By lap 8 Brian was gaining on Richard for the lead and the three continued a fierce battle right down to the last lap. Stanley made a daring move and went from third to first heading through 3-4 on lap 18. Richard seemed to lose some power and Brian took the lead and held on for a slim victory over Stanley.
The OSCAAR Modifieds hit the track for their 30 lap main event with the 99 of Luke Gignac leading lap one. On lap seven, the 14 of A.J. Emms got by Gignac on the inside as they went down the front stretch and the 8 of Gary McLean was up to third. A caution came out as the 19 of Dean Scott had a right front tire go down. Dan Price and John Harper also experienced some issues. The 8 of Gary McLean and 14 of A.J. Emms battled wheel to wheel for six laps but took each other out as they headed out of four bringing out the caution. Gignac was once again the new leader but it didn’t last long. Veteran Gary Elliott took the lead and held it until lap 20 when he lost power with some engine issues and David Baylch took over the lead. He to would lose the lead as the 20 of George Wilson was now in front. On lap 24, Dan Price and Wilson were battling for the lead. Price went around out of two and that gave the lead back to Wilson and he would not relinquish it and picked up the feature victory.
The second Thunder Car feature saw Andrew Robertson and Bobby Mercer on the point. An early caution on lap one out of two saw the 36 of Hudson Nagys car expire bringing out the caution. Brad Collison was the leader off the restart and he wouldn’t give it up although the 7 of Bobby Mercer seemed to be gaining as the race wore on but Collison would hold on for the feature win.
The last race of the night was the second thirty lap feature for the Late Models. Rick Burbridge would lead the first six laps but Nick Roth got by to take the lead on the back stretch on lap seven. Roth had a five car lead over Shawn Chenoweth,, Andrew Gresel and Burbridge. Gressel got by Chenoweth on lap 22 and was gaining on Roth but he was able to hold him off to pick up the win. Nice to see Nick in Victory Lane. Back on May 7th, Roth was pretty dejected as he pretty much destroyed the front right side of the car as a brake rotor broke sending him hard into the wall. Congratulations Nick!
That brought to an end another exciting weekend of racing. Please join us next weekend May 28th as the Lucas Oil Sportsman series returns for another 100 lap main event. They are joined by the Thunder Cars, Mini Sticks, Pure Stocks and Ontario Pro Challenge series. The Highwaymen Car Club are at the track for their annual event. Join us as Pit gates open at 3pm, Front gates at 5 pm and racing starts at 6pm.

Fitzpatrick Dominates OSCAAR Super Late Model Feature At Flamboro

Flamboro_Speedway_LogoOSCAAR
By Randy Spencer – J.R. Fitzpatrick picked up where he left off in 2015. And talking to the Cambridge, Ontario driver during the off season, J.R. was chomping at the bit and couldn’t wait to get the season started. He finished off 2015 strong, finishing either first or second in the final six races on the schedule.
Bennett Chevrolet Flamboro Speedway hosted the first big event of the 2016 season, the Spring Fever Blues Shakedown. This two day event got off yesterday with qualifying for all divisions and feature events for the OSCAAR Super Late Models and Lucas Oil Canadian Vintage Modifieds.
The Vintage Modifieds were up first. Steve Trendell was on the pole for the ten lap qualifier. Trendell wasted no time getting out to a nice lead and picking up the checkered flag. Heat two saw veteran Brian Atkinson lead all the way. 2015 points champion Jason Keen didn’t let Atkinson out of his sites and T.J. Marshall, who won several events here last season was close behind in third.
The Flamboro Stadium & Speedway Pure Stocks were up next for qualifying. Gillian Hils led early but Wayde Thorne and 2015 points champ Andy Wheller were breathing down her neck. On lap six of the ten lap heat, Thorne got by Hils down the back stretch and picked up the win. The second heat saw a great battle between a couple of young guns as Lofton Schuts hold off a determined Josh Shantz to pick up the checkered flag.
The Klotz Auto Repair & Engine Machine Shop hit the track for their one heat race. Russ Aicken showed no mercy and continued his strong early season showing running away from the pack and picking up a win.
The Ray’s Auto Centre & Towing Thunder Cars had one qualifier as well with six cars taking the green flag. An early caution on lap two as the 21 of Andrew Roberston and 55 of Chris Howse tangled out of two and spun out bringing the caution. On the restart, Shawn Arnott continued to lead and a valiant effort by Brad Collison but Arnott would not surrender the lead and took the checkers.
The Pro Four Modifieds were the next to run with a 15 lap qualifying race. Dan Nanticoke, who has had some issues early on this season, didn’t show any on this day as he shot out to a huge lead. Even a caution on lap ten didn’t slow his momentum and he picked up the win.
Up next was qualifying for the three OSCAAR series divisions. They would run double qualifiers. The Super Late Models were first and veterans Glenn Watson and Shawn Chenoweth were on the pole. Chenoweth led early and was holding off the hard charging Fitzpatrick. He tried several times to get by Chenoweth and wasn’t able but finally on lap eight in turns 1 & 2 he managed to use the bump and run and got by to take the lead and Fitzpatrick took the win. Heat two saw Roy Passer, Craig Stevenson and Charlie Gallant nose to tail for ten laps with Passer taking the victory.
The Modifieds were next. Last years point champion Gary McLean got out to a good lead and the battle for second was the race to watch as the Spiderman John Harper battling Dean Scott with Harper coming home second. Heat two, the 14 of A.J. Emms led from flag to flag and had a full straight away lead on the rest of the pack.
The Midgets, known previously as the Hurricane Midgets were next. Richard Woodland got out to a big lead and is in the previous race, the action was for second and third. Ryan Brown held off Larry Lawson to come in second. Heat two saw a great battle between James Stanley and Brian Woodland. Stanley led until lap seven when Woodland got by going into turn three and he picked up the checkered flag.
Round two of qualifying got underway as the Midgets finished up. Roy Passer and J.R. Fitzpatick were on the pole. Tried as he may, Fitzpatrick couldn’t get passed and Passer won heat three. Heat four saw Dustin Jackson and Derrick Tiemersma battling early but Tiemersma slowed and left the track on lap three and Jackson picked up the win.
Modified heat three saw pole sitter Dan Price go around in turns 3-4 on lap two bringing out the caution. A.J. Emms wasted no time taking the lead and having a repeat performance of his first heat winning handily by almost a full straight away and took the heat win. Heat four saw George Wilson out front early. John Harper and David Baylch were battling behind Wilson and as Wilson took the checkers, Harper was second followed by Baylch.
The Midgets were up and once again Brian Woodland won handily picking up his second checkered flag of the day. Heat four saw James Stanley take the lead on lap two as he passed Larry Lawson and took off like a shot to win by a good margin in the final qualifier before intermission.
Two features would be run to end the racing action for the day with the Lucas Oil Canadian Vintage Modifieds up first for their 25 lap main event. This one was pretty uneventful, ran flag to flag with Steve Trendell picking up the checkered flag holding off veteran Brian Atkinson and Jason Keen for the win in the kick off event for the club’s 50th anniversary. A nice touch for Trendell who has been a long time runner with the club and doing some great work on line and on the club’s website promoting the history of the Vintage Modifieds, known to many as the Hobby club.
The OSCAAR Super Late Models were the last event of the day with fourteen cars taking the green flag. Tyler Hawn and Charlie Gallant were on the pole. Glenn Watson led lap one but it wasn’t long before J.R. Fitzpatrick, who started fifth in the field, powered his way to the front of the field. Shawn Chenoweth was on Fitzpatrick’s bumper early but Roy Passer got by the 89 of Chenoweth heading down the front stretch on lap 24. The first caution came on lap 34 as the 52 of Gary Passer went around on the front stretch bringing the field back to even with 16 laps to go. Fitzpatrick didn’t waste any time regaining the lead off the start followed by Roy Passer right on his back bumper. Fitzpatrick held off the field for the remainder of the race and picked up the twin checkers from starter Dale Shunamon.
That brought to a close the racing action for the day. Make sure you join us Sunday, May 22nd for day two of the Spring Fever Blues Shakedown. Twin 30 lap features for Pro Late Models, 40 lap features for Thunder Cars and Mini Stocks, 25 lap features for the Pure Stocks, OSCAAR Midgets and Pro 4 Modifieds and 30 lap feature for the OSCAAR Modifieds. Pits open at 11am, front gates at 1pm and last chance qualifying starts at 4pm.

“Hollywood” Mike Hyrniuk Wins LOSC 100 Lap Feature At Flamboro Speedway

20160514d3030

By Randy Spencer – On a night where pretty much every track in Ontario cancelled their racing program, Bennett Chevrolet Flamboro Speedway forged ahead and got the racing night in despite the continued cooler than normal spring we’ve had so far.
The Lucas Oil Sportsman Cup Series and Lucas Oil Can Am Midget series both were on hand to kick off their 2016 seasons. They were joined by the Ray’s Auto Centre and Towing Thunder Cars, the Klotz Auto Repair & Engine Machine Shop Mini Stocks and the Flamboro Speedway Hall of Fame Pure Stocks.

The night didn’t get off to a good start unfortunately. On lap one of the first Pure Stock feature, the cars were bunched coming out of two on lap one when several cars got involved. The 5 of Stephney Kopecny took a couple of real hard hits and ended up stopped in the infield. The raced continued without caution and the 10 of Lofton Schutts led the first 12 laps. The 6 of Wayde Thorne took the lead and held on for the win. On further check of the 5 car, Hamilton EMS and Fire were called and she was cut from the car as a precaution. An hour delay took place before racing resumed. In the second feature, the 69 of Roger Lessard led for the first 8 laps but couldn’t hold off the 18 of Josh Shantz took the lead and picked up the checkered flag.
In Mini Stock action, point leader Blair Wickett had problems early and his night was over quick as he experienced some problems that caused him to tag the turn one wall on lap two. The 71 of Russ Aicken took a big lead and was ahead by half a straight away at one point an he took the win easily. In the second feature, the 76 of Shawn Taylor did what Aicken had done in race one, building a big lead early but blew an blew the oil filter seal and dumped oil on the track and his night was over. On the restart, Aicken was right there again and he held off Miles Tyson to make a clean sweep of the night. Tyson, a visiting car due to the rain out at Sunset had a good run staying close to Aicken after getting by the 75 of Scott Mast.
Thunder Cars hit the track and another winner from last week had his night end quick. Rookie Hudson Nagy locked up the car and slid hard into the turn one wall on the start bringing out the caution. Brad Collison took advantage and battled with Chris Howse but held him off for the win. Shawn Arnott and Nick Troback had a great run for the third and fourth spots.In the second feature, it was a strange one. Howse was leading early but coming out of four he did a complete 360 in front of the field but managed to avoid contact with any car or the wall and continued on his way. Nick Troback took the lead and was starting to pull away when his car quit and brought out the caution. On the restart, Howse made his way back from the spin, through the field, took the lead and picked up the win.
The Can Am Midgets ran two heats. The 74 of Rob Neely got by the 91 of Brandon Zavarella with a couple laps to go to pick up the win. In heat 2, car number two of Steve Murdoch got out to a big lead and he held off a hard charging Mack Deman an took the checkered flag. In the feature, Murdoch once again was the dominant car to watch. Deman went around in 3-4 on lap 8 bringing the cars back to even. Another caution and the same result as Murdoch held off the veteran Neely and as the checkers flew it was sophomore of Steve Murdoch picking up his first ever feature win in the series.
The Lucas Oil Sportsman had time trials to start the night, the clubs 10th anniversary year. The 15 car of “Hollywood” Mike Hryniuk narrowly beat the 18 of Chad McGlynn to pick up the fast time. The Fast Five were Hryniuk, McGlynn, Kevin Gallant, Kevin Allen and Tim Tolton. After the fast five draw, the start was McGlynn, Gallant, Hryniuk, Tolton and Allen. McGlynn got off to a strong start and led Hryniuk for the first 14 laps. But Hryniuk bot by McGlynn and Gallant was on his tail. A caution on lap 18 saw the 40 of Donny Beatty hitting the turn three wall. A few cautions slowed the field and brought them back to even but Hryniuk managed to keep the lead. The hometown favorite “The Flying Farmer” Kevin Gallant started to slide back a few spots in the field but still had an impressive debut in the series. Mike Hryniuk managed to lead the rest of the way and picked up the checkered flag followed by McGlynn, Allen, Doug Cathcart and Josh Wood.
That brought to a close another great night of racing. Please join us next weekend for the Spring Fever Blues Shakedown, a two day event to celebrate the Victoria day long weekend.
