Flamboro Speedway Gets 2016 Season Underway

By Randy Spencer Opening day in any sport is always special and that feeling was felt as Flamboro Speedway launched the season with some exciting race action Saturday night. The cooler than normal spring continued and quite a few hardy fans were on hand.
The night got underway with Pure Stock action. Some of the best racing action in 2015 took place in this division and by the looks of this race, this year will not be any different. Alex Schuts, a Thunder car racer at Ohsweken picked up the first checkered flag of 2016 winning the 20 lap event. Mini Stocks were next. Last weeks enduro winner Rodney Rutherford looked strong early but Blair Wickett came on and dominated and picked up the win.  Chad Ditner looked strong and battled Rutherford and got by him for second. Thunder Cars hit the track next. Brad Collison showed he means business this year and won the race handily. The last race before intermission saw some exciting open wheeled action from the Pro 4 Modifieds. Bill Pearsall and Dan Nanticoke both led early but both retired to the pits with mechanical issues and that made last years champion Brian Nanticoke the winner.
Round two of feature action saw the Pure Stocks once again up first. Leo Labarbera and Blair Mayhew led early but the veteran Mark DaSilva, who has raced for many years in the Mini Stocks, shot out to the lead and won race #2. The Mini Stocks provided some excitement in there second race with lots of three wide action. Rick Robinson led early but Blair Wickett once again showed he will be a force to be reckoned with this season picking up his second feature win of the night. At one point he opened up a full straight away lead on the pack. Jake Gilbert and Chad Ditner battled throughout and Ditner got by for a second straight second place finish on the night. In the second Thunder car feature, Bobby Mercer led early and battled close with Collison, Shawn Arnott and Hudson Nagy but the veteran Arnott overcame some issues from earlier in the night and picked up the feature win. The last race of the night was the Pro 4 Modifieds. Mark Millard led early and looked like a sure winner but he to had some mechanical issues, slowed and hit the pits. After a caution on lap 11, Mark Lucas took the lead and held off Mike Westwood and Brian Nanticoke for the win. Nice to see Lucas back in victory lane.
That brought to a close and great first night of racing at Bennett Chevrolet Flamboro Speedway. Please join us next week, May 7th, as the Grisdale Late Models return. They are joined by the Ray’s Towing & Recovery Thunder Cars, Klotz Auto Repair & Engine Machine Shop Mini Stocks, the Pro 4 Modifieds and the Pure Stocks with their new sponsor, the Flamboro Speedway Hall of Fame. Pits open at 4, front gates at 5 with the first green flag at 7pm.

RUTHERFORD CALLS HIS SHOT AS FLAMBORO SEASON GETS UNDERWAY

By Randy Spencer – When you pull on your helmet and strap yourself in, there is one thing all racers have in common. They’re out there to win and everyone feels they will come home with the checkered flag. But Rodney Rutherford made it known that he was going to win the first Flamboro Speedway Enduro of the new season. After coming in second and fourth in the two enduros last year, Rutherford was on a mission for the top prize this time around. Thirty three cars signed in for the 200 lap enduro event as Flamboro Speedway kicked off its 55th season.
Starter Doug MacLean dropped the green and the season was underway. It was a mad dash as the cars began a sprint for the front. Joe DeBoer and Rob Hoskins shared the lead over the first five laps. Mini Stock veteran Mark DaSilva soon made his way to the front and by lap 10 he began to put some room between himself and the rest of the pack. At one point DaSilva led the pack by a half track and eventually began lapping traffic. DaSilva seemed to be the early favorite as he pulled away. However by lap 44 the 01 car started to slow down the back stretch and he pulled to the infield. The 05 car of Pete Reid now was the leader…a position he would keep for the next 80+ laps.
But it wasn’t out for a leisurely drive however. Lapped traffic made it difficult for Reid as well as the aforementioned Rodney Rutherford. The 38 car was glued to bumper of the 05 car and on several occasions made a strong push to steal the lead. But Reid wouldn’t back down and this perhaps was the most exciting part of the entire race day. By lap 80, Reid and Rutherford were the last two remaining cars on the lead lap. They continued to battle hard and by the half way point they were hard at it and half the original starting field had retired for the day.
By lap 127 Rutherford made his move on Reid and took the lead. Rutherford got out to a bit of a lead but Reid and the 87 of Shone Evans were knocking on the 38’s back door. Evans came out of no where and like a rocket was past Rutherford on lap 147. He would hold the lead for six short laps until Reid once again made his way to the front. By lap 157 Reid had a fifteen car length lead. The 81 of Karl Sault, 87 of Shone Evans and 4J of Josh Shantz were right there on Reid’s bumper battling for the lead. Not to be out done however, Rutherford managed to some how find his way back into the mix. Reid was in the lead and Rutherford made his way to the back bumper once again with 25 laps remaining. Reid led for 28 laps but seemed to lose some steam and Rutherford got by with just 20 laps remaining. As the checkered flag flew, Rutherford crossed the line with a fist pump out the window and finally got that elusive enduro win. Pete Reid came in secnd followed by Karl Sault, Shone Evans and Josh Shantz. The 20 lap Figure eight race had just four cars remaining and as the checkers flew on that one the 53 of Chris Rivers came home first followed close in second  by the 6 car of Madeline Mayhew. Congratulations to all the competitors on a great race day!! If this is any indication of the season to come at Flamboro Speedway, it will be a memorable and exciting one for sure.
Make plans to join us for the regular season opening night, this Saturday April 30th at Bennett Chevrolet Flamboro Speedway. Pits open at 4pm, Front gates at 5pm and the first green flag flies at 7pm. The Ray’s Towing & Recovery Thunder Cars are joined by the Klotz Auto Repair & Engine Machine Shop Mini Stocks, the Bomb Energy Drink Pro 4 Modifieds and the Pure Stocks.
