Andrew Gressel Has Five Thousand Reasons To Smile At Gold Rush

20160822d0162 1
By Randy Spencer (Flamboro Speedway PR) – The long awaited and highly anticipated Gold Rush was well worth the wait as eighteen of the best Super Late Models battled it out for 100 laps at Bennett Chevrolet Flamboro Speedway Monday night.
Lots of cars going in were favored to take home the big prize and the anticipation as time trials got underway kept everyone on the edge of their seats to see who would be the fastest. Six cars would come across at less than fifteen seconds. Gary Passer, Matt Pritiko, Roy Passer, Tyler Hawn, Andrew Gressel and pole sitter Brandon Watson who had a time of 14.712.
Peter Becker was the fastest car in Pure Stock qualifying with a time of 19.694. He would sit on the pole and declined the offer to go to the rear to try and make it through to win $600. That was the challenge that second quickest car of Gary Slama decided to take up. He had a time of 19.743 and would head to the rear as the field of 24 took the green. Becker would lead lap one. The field began to spread out and a freight train of cars made its way mainly single file around the three eights mile oval. Slama was on the move. He was quickly up to 12th spot and gaining. At the front Becker was still the leader and Kevin Gallant was close behind in second as the two broke away from the pack. A caution as the 7 of Matt Young was into the wall in turn three. Slama was now up to seventh and before long up to fifth on the bumper of Ross Winters Jr. Slama was glued there for a while and it seemed perhaps he had met his match. But with a few laps to go, Kevin Gallant and Andy Wheller went high out of four, Wheller got loose and spun to the infield. This gave Slama the break he was looking for and he moved into second spot. Lapped traffic was starting to play a factor and it would give either Becker or Slama what they were looking for. But it proved to be too much for Slama, he was about ten car lengths back as Becker crossed the line under the checkered flag to pick up the $300 first place prize. Slama gave it a great effort coming home second. As the cars exited four, Gallant and Winters Jr. were jousting for position, the two cars tangled and Winters was around and crossed backwards over the line for third while Gallant spun through the infield for fourth. Gillian Hils rounded out the top five.
With just 18 cars, no B Main was required for the Super Lates so after an intermission we got right into the 100 lap main event. Nice to have two cars from Flat Rock Speedway in Michigan including their Late Model champion Paul Pelletier and the Boogey Man, Terry Bogusz. Unfortunately Bogusz had engine issue and wasn’t able to qualify or make the race. The cars and drivers lined up on the front straight for driver introductions and to see which drivers were prepared to go to the rear of the field to try and make it through to the front to double the prize to $10,000. As announcer Gary Colling made his way through the field he asked each driver and he got to the second fastest car Andrew Gressel. By this point eleven drivers said the would go to the back. Gressel did as well making it twelve but pole sitter Brandon Watson was the last word and he also said yes and he would be the car and driver that would take up the last spot.
As the green flew, Andrew Gressel led lap one. He got a little squirrely out of four as they completed lap one and a caution the next lap as Glenn Watson went around heading into three. A few laps later John Cadman Jr. lost power heading into three and slowed through four with several cars narrowly avoiding him. Cadman came to a stop on the front stretch as another yellow flew. On the restart, Gressel and Pritiko battled door to door. The cars settled in and Gressel continued to lead and had a five car length advantage on Pritiko. By lap 25, Gressel was still out front followed by Shane Maginnis, Pritiko and J.R. Fitzpatrick. The third caution of the race on lap 29 as Dustin Jackson spun to the infield out of two. On the restart, Gressel and Maginnis battled side by side but Gressel once again was the leader. On lap 39, Matt Pritiko slowed down the back stretch with a broken fuel pump and that brought out the competition caution so cars with smaller fuel cells could enter the pits to fill up with fuel.
The top three now were Gressel, Maginnis and Fitzpatrick. Fitzpatrick would take over second spot on the restart as Maginnis went high out of two and that allowed J.R. to get by on the low side for second. Half way it was Gressel, Fitzpatrick, Maginnis, Hawn, Roy Passer and pole sitter to the rear, Brandon Watson. Also of note, Glenn Watson who started at the back as well was now up to ninth. A caution on lap 54 as Todd Campbell got loose and was around sliding to the infield. The fifth and final caution of the race the next lap as Dwayne Baker and Campbell got together and were into the turn three wall. With 24 laps to go, Watson was making a late charge. After not qualifying due to mechanical issues, starting at the rear and a first lap spin, Watson was now up to sixth as he got by Brandon Watson. Some bumping and grinding gave Watson the break he needed and he was up to fourth. On lap 83, Fitzpatrick slowed through three and four and slowly made his way off the track ending his night for what he said was, “a $10 part derailed us”, as a small pin hole in the left front flex line for the caliper was the culprit. With ten laps to go, Watson would get by Maginnis to take over second spot but Andrew Gressel would lead flag to flag and pick up the $5000 first prize money. Congratulations Andrew!!
That brought to a close a very exciting night of racing at Bennett Chevrolet Flamboro Speedway. Please make plans to join us this Saturday, August 27th as the Lucas Oil Canadian Vintage Modifieds and Lucas Oil Can Am Midgets are back at Flamboro. Alo on hand are the Ray’s Auto Centre & Towing Thunder Cars, the Klotz Auto Repair & Engine Machine Shop Mini Stocks and the Pro Four Modifieds. Pits open at 4pm, main grandstands at 5pm, Kids rides at 6pm and green flag at 7pm sharp!

Andrew Gressel Wins London Recreational APC 100 At Flamboro Speedway

20160814d2673

By Randy Spencer (Flamboro Speedway PR) – A twenty four hour delay was well worth the wait for Andrew Gressel as he dominated the seventh leg of the APC United Late Model Series at Bennett Chevrolet Flamboro Speedway Sunday afternoon. Heavy rain and a flooded infield and pit area made it too dangerous to run the race Saturday.

The afternoon got underway with Bennett GM Pole Qualifying for the APC Late Models. Andrew Gressel who leads the series in points and had won three of the first six races saved the best for last as was the last out to qualify and set a new APC track record at Flamboro with a fast second lap of 15.164. Brandon Watson held the record previously at 15.180. The top five were all very close, separated by .111 of a second. Jason Parker was second quick followed by Billy Schwartzenberg, Matt Pritiko and Steve Laking. After the top five “pill” draw the top five changed and when the green flag dropped on the race the top five were Billy Schwartzenberg, Andrew Gressel, Matt Pritiko, Jason Parker and Steve Laking.
Racing got underway shortly after three and we would run the six features then intermission before the main event. In Flamboro Stadium & Speedway Hall of Fame Pure Stock feature action, Ross Winters Jr. was on the pole alongside Eric Crow. An early caution on lap two as debris on the track brought the cars back to even. Winters led the first lap but on the restart Josh Shantz took the lead away. But Winters wouldn’t give up and a few laps later out of four he regained the lead. Winters would lead the rest of the way but not before lapped traffic and a hard charging veteran Andy Wheller making Winters work very hard for the win. As the checkers flew it was Winters Jr. followed by Wheller and Shantz. In the second feature it was equally as exciting if not more to the finish. Matt Young and Gillian Hils were on the pole and the two battled door to door for the first few laps. It was a tight battle but Hils eventually would lead and before you knew it, there was the veteran Andy Wheller once again. Starting tenth in this one, he was up to second, just four laps in. Wheller was pretty much glued to the bumper of the 82 Hils for many laps and the two started to break away from the rest of the pack. Winters Jr. wasn’t too far behind and he wouldn’t let the leaders get too far out front. As the leaders approached the half way mark, lapped traffic was becoming an issue for the top three contenders. They were nose to tail and with five laps to go, Wheller did everything he could to get by Hils. Heading down the back stretch, Wheller took the low road but a lapped car made it difficult to get past. As the three exited four with the checkers in sight, Wheller made one last try followed by Winters but Hils would hold them off to pick up the win.
In Klotz Auto Repair & Engine Machine Shop Mini Stock action, Blair Wickett was the early leader in feature one. David Gallinger and Mike Hooper got tangled with one another heading out of four and Hooper headed to the pits for repairs. A caution as some damage from the previous incident as Gallinger slowed to a stop. Russ Aicken was battling Wickett and was the new leader and as the checkered flag came down it was Aiken followed by Wickett and Wayde Thorne. In the second feature, Michael Kenny and Jake Gilbert were out front of the pack. Kenny would lead early and the cars started settling in. Kenny was leading the freight train of canine cars nose to tail for over ten laps. Aicken and Wickett were continuing their battle and race each other for every inch. Gilbert started to make his move just past half way and by lap 15 in one and two Gilbert made the pass and was the new leader. The next lap as the cars came out of two and were heading down the back stretch, Thorne got into Aicken and sent him spinning. The starter waved the black flag at Thorne and he took up position with Aicken at the back of the pack. Gilbert was the leader but Wickett made his move in turn two with two laps to go and took the lead from Gilbert. As the checkers flew it was Wickett followed by Gilbert and Miles Tyson.
The Lucas Oil Canadian Vintage Modifieds had eleven cars signed in on this night. Steve Trendell and Jason Keen still battling atop the point standings were both in fine form and ready for battle. In feature one, on the original start it appeared the pole sitters Amanda Stoner and Bob Gilbert had a synchronized spin and the caution was out. New front row saw Trendell and Darren Dryden lead the field to green for a second try. Trendell led and about half way through the 84 of Jeremy Barton went high out of two and turned slightly making contact with the 92 of Brian Atkinson. Atkinson was partially airborne as he climbed the left front tire of Barton and came to a rest sideways on the backstretch. On the restart, Trendell continued to lead but Jason Keen would get by Dryden down the back stretch and take over second. Trendell and Keen would battle close the rest of the way with Trendell taking the win. In feature two, Trendell had some issues and Keen would dominate this one and would take the checkers in this one.
After a brief intermission, the APC United Late Models hit the track for in car introductions. Andrew Gresel got a jump on inside pole sitter Billy Schwartzenberg to lead the opening lap. The cars jockeyed for position early and the race was clean until a spin by Paighton Jacobs in turn two on lap 18. The cars ran like a freight train for a longer period and it wasn’t until lap 67 that the caution flew again for two separate issues. Paighton Jacobs came to a stop near the exit in turn two and the 17 of Josh Stade spun on his own and went backwards into the turn one wall. On the lap 67 restart the caution came out once again as Dan McHattie spun through four and ended up just off the track. Through several restarts, Gressel continued to retake the lead each time. By this point Dale Shaw and Steve Laking were on Gressel’s tail and battling tooth and nail for every inch of real estate. Over the next six or seven laps, several cautions would bring the field to even with Gressel taking the lead back each time. On lap 82, Shawn Chenoweth and Steve Laking made contact sending Laking around. Chenoweth was shown the black flag and was sent to the rear for causing the spin. On this restart, Shaw got the jump this time and took over the race lead from Gresel but a crash on the back straightaway when Rick Burbridge and Shawn McGlynn saved Gressel and he got the lead back. Burbridge left for change a flat and McGlynn went to the infield and slowly exited the car to be checked by EMS. On the final restart, Dale Shaw made a great moved on Schwartzenberg to take second and soon found Gressel’s back bumper. The two broke away from the pack and Shaw did what he could to catch the points leader. Cole Timm took over third from Schwartzenberg. As the checkers flew, Gressel made it four wins in seven races and end up in Royal Purple victory lane. Dale Shaw was second, Cole Timm third, Schwartzenburg 4th and Jason Parker was fifth.
Notes: Nice to see young Cole Timm make his way north to race in the series. He mentioned in victory lane that racing these guys race a little rougher up here than back home in North Carolina. Shawn McGlynn took a hard hit and x-rays showed a broken bone in his left arm. His racing season is finished. The Meineke team is looking at putting another driver in the car for the next race at Sunset Speedway on August 27th. In Mini Stocks, Taylor Thring is coming on and had her best career finish with an eighth. Stephney Dean Kopecny was back in a Mini Stock, her first time on the track since the first of the season when a crash caused some injuries that put her out of action most of the summer. Wayde Thorne continues to drive for Shawn Taylor in the 76. Great run by Michael Kenny in the second Mini Stock feature. After lots of bad luck to start the year, nice to see him have some good luck. Morgan Robson Jr. made the trip down from Sunset for his first ever race at Flamboro. By all accounts he had a great time and was happy with the results. A full time wheel chair user, he says on his facebook page, “Because you have a disability, doesn’t mean you can’t follow your dreams.” Nice to see so many Mini and Pure Stocks from other tracks make it to the action at Flamboro. Being a Sunday it made it easy for so many to make the trip. Rain forced cancellation at many other tracks Friday and Saturday. IMPORTANT NOTE: The Enduro and Figure 8 race scheduled for August 28th has been cancelled.
GOLD RUSH update: There are teams out there that are concerned that they will not have enough fuel to run 100 laps! We don’t want to see teams not come because of this concern so if a caution comes out between lap 20 to 40, teams will be allowed to come into the pits and top up on fuel without losing your position on the track. If no caution comes out, we will make a caution before lap 40. Having the caution early will insure nobody can play the weight game. There will be a section in the pits to fuel with a tech person over seeing it. No other changes can be made to your car at this time and if you do you will go to the back of the field.
That brought to a close another exciting night of racing action at Bennett Chevrolet Flamboro Speedway. A busy August continues with a doubleheader this weekend. First up Saturday, August 20th, it’s FIRST RESPONDERS NIGHT and back by popular demand, KING OF THE HILL. Help us honor our first responders as all Police, Fire and EMS will be admitted free with proper I.D. on the main grandstand side. The Grisdale Late Models return along with the Ray’s Towing & Auto Centre Thunder Cars, the Klotz Auto Repair & Engine Machine Shop Mini Stocks and the Pro Four Modifieds. And at intermission, it’s race what you drove as the ever popular King or Queen of the Hill makes its final 2016 appearance. The winner gets a trophy, $100 and bragging rights. This event is always very exciting. Pit gates open at 4pm, main grandstand at 5pm and racing starts at 7pm.
Then on Monday, August 22nd the GOLD RUSH arrives at Flamboro Speedway once again. The past two events were for the Pro Late Models, this time the Outlaw Super Late Models are the lucky recipients. Super Late Models from all over Ontario will be on hand and rumor has it that many from bordering U.S. tracks are looking at making the trip here to take home the cash. The race will be 100 laps with $5,000 to the winner and an extra $5,000 is up for grabs if the top qualifier surrenders the position to start at the back and if they come to the front and win, the get $10,000. It almost happened in one of the Pro Late Model Gold Rush events so it is possible. With just 20 cars taking the green, this should be exciting!! Sixteen cars will qualify through time trials and the remaining four will be determined by a twenty lap B feature. The Pure Stocks will run and Invitational Mini Gold Rush. The field of 24 will be set trough time trials for the 25 lap main event. The winner will get $300 and as in the Super Late Model race, if the top qualifier surrenders his or her spot and comes through the field and wins, they get an extra $300 for a total of $600. Monday, Pits open at 3pm, Main grandstand at 5pm, Pure Stock Time Trials at 630pm, Outlaw Super Late Model Time Trials at 7pm and the main events start at 8pm.

Shane Maginnis Wins OSCAAR On Biederman Memorial Night

20160806d4161c4
By Randy Spencer Flamboro Speedway PR) – A very busy August got underway at Bennett Chevrolet Flamboro Speedway Saturday night with a visit by the Lucas Oil Can Am Midgets and the OSCAAR series for their annual Don Biederman Memorial Night. An inaugural inductee to the Flamboro Stadium & Speedway, Biederman was one of the most dominant, fierce and popular racers in Flamboro’s history.
Racing got under way at 6pm with qualifying. The OSCAAR Midgets were up first. Brian MacDonald was on the pole for the first ten lap qualifier and has been so dominant this season. He picked up where he left last time in and got out to a big lead in this one and led all the way picking up the checkered flag. In the second qualifier, Ryan Brown duplicated MacDonald’s first race feat leading all ten laps for the win. Brown didn’t have it quite as easy as MacDonald. Wally Wilson in the 69 and Alex Cuzzilla in the 50 didn’t let Brown to far out of their sights.
The Lucas Oil Can Am Midgets were up next for two ten lap qualifiers. Barry Dunn was on the pole and led lap one of the first heat. A caution on lap three as the 48 of Darren McLennan was around in turn two on lap three. On the restart, Dunn and Mack Deman battled for the lead. Deman made several attempts to take the lead from Dunn but wasn’t able to get by. Nice to see Dunn win the race as he just celebrated a birthday this week. Happy Birthday Barry!  Race two saw Rob Neely lead lap one. James Marche and Jeff Blackburn were close behind with Blackburn eventually moving to second and breaking away from the rest of the pack but Neely would hold on for the heat win.
The OSCAAR Pro Midgets were next for two heat races. Rob Summers led lap one of race one. By half way Summers was leading with Brian MacDonald and Glen Blaker close behind. March was up to second through three and four on lap six. Blaker got by for a short time to take the lead but Summers took it back and crossed the line first to take the win. In the second heat, Jordan Hannah led early and did so until lap seven when Ted Greenwood took the lead on the back stretch and held off Hannah to pick up the win.
Up next were the ground pounders, the OSCAAR Super Late Models. J.R. Fitzpatrick had a rough start. In the 4 car instead of his familiar 84 car, Fitzpatrick tagged the wall on lap one that slowed him a bit. Roy Passer led lap one. On lap two the 52 of Gary Passer was around out of two and the 40 of Charlie Gallant had no where to go and was into the side of Passer. Passer had a flat left side rear tire and was off. Gallant had some front end damage but was able to continue. Roy Passer continued to lead and picked up the win. In heat two, Shane Maginnis led lap one and started to break away from the pack and won handily.
Second round qualifying was up and the Midgets were back for heats three and four. Zack Millman led lap one but it wasn’t long before Alex Cuzzilla took the lead and stretched it to a big lead in short order. As the checkers flew it was Cuzzilla in the Sunoco Fuels Victory Lane. Heat four saw Wayne McKibbon taking the lead early and leading flag to flag for the heat win.
Pro Midgets were next for two more heats. Ted Greenwood led lap one and would go flag to flag to pick up the heat win. In heat four, Katherine Summers led early. Glen Blaker was on Summers’ bumper and took the lead on lap two. Cassidy March moved up to second and would battle Blaker for the rest of the race but Blaker held off March for the win.
Super Late Model heats three and four were next with Shane Maginnis in the lead early. Kelly Balson was on Maginnis’ tail and never let hm too far out of his sights but Maginnis was just to strong and picked up the win. Heat four saw J.R. Fitzpatrick lead lap one. His woes in the heats continued as he experienced battery problems and was around out of two bringing out the caution. Glenn Watson was the new leader and held off the pack to pick up the heat win.
The first feature of the night was the first of two twenty lap races for the OSCAAR Modifieds. Luke Gignac led lap one. Chris Milwain was second but a great battle between he and Gary Elliott and Elliott got by for second through one and two on lap four. As the race continued Gignac was leading and seemed a sure winner until he slowed through one and two and a alternator issue ended his chance at the win. Gary Elliott was running second and would be the winner. So happy for the Iron Man, my hero. Congratulations Gary on your first OSCAAR Modified feature win.
The Ray’s Auto Centre & Towing Thunder Cars were up for their first twenty lap feature. Chris Howse led lap one. Shawn Chenoweth was in the 76 car for Shawn Arnott who has taken a well deserved holiday break. Chenoweth showed no “Thunder Car rust” and was the  new leader on lap two. Howse was having some handling problems and was back to fifth. As the checkers flew it was Chenoweth first followed by Brad Collison and Hudson Nagy.
It was intermission time and Gary Elliott brought his Modified to the front stretch. He handed out three trophies to some excited young fans.
The Midgets were up for their twenty five lap feature. Ryan Brown was the leader on lap one. Alex Cuzzilla was on Brown’s bumper and the two battled early. Lapped traffic came into play and on lap 18 Cuzzilla took the lead from Brown and would hold off the pack to pick up his first feature win. At thirteen years old its nice to see  this apple hasn’t fallen far from the tree. On this special night, the Don Biederman Memorial, Cuzzilla’s grand father Tom was a former racer with Biederman at the old Pinecrest Speedway where the two battled many times. A well spoken young man, in his Sunoco Fuels Victory Lane interview, he was very happy to win and spoke well of his sponsors and was happy to finally get a chance to say “A little bit of NAPA know how”, in honor of one of his sponsors.
The Can Am Midgets were up for their feature and s always they salute the fans, as only the best go four abreast. Barry Dunn and Steve Murdock were on the pole. Murdock led lap one. Rob Neely, who started fifth, was up to second with Mack Deman to third. A few laps later, Jeff Blackburn went high through one and two and started a casual role and was over on his top. Red flag was out as emergency services rushed to the scene. They rolled the car over onto its wheels, Blackburn was out and ok. On the restart, Deman made his way to the front and out of four on lap nine Deman was the new leader. There was no looking back as Deman took the checkered flag.
 
The Pro Midget feature was next and the 1 car of Ted Greenwood experienced some early difficulties and was unable to take the green. The 55 of Jordan Hannah was the early leader and moved out to a huge lead. A great four car battle behind Hannah ensued between Rob Summers, Cassidy March, Jesse Costa and Brian MacDonald. Hannah had a full straight away lead and was dominating. Costa was doing all he could to catch up but he ran out of time and it was Hannah crossing the line first.
The Modifieds were up for their second twenty lap feature of the night. Dan Price was the pole sitter and led lap one. The Spider Man John Harper was on Price’s bumper for several laps. Nice to see Harper back. Last time out he had some very extensive front end damage to his car. On lap four Harper began to make his move and dragged raced Price down the front stretch and they crossed the line in a dead heat. The next lap however Harper got by out of two and was the new leader. Price was shuffled to the outside and was back to the rear of the pack. Harper would hold off the rest of the field to pick up the win.
The Thunder Cars were up next. Early on the 74 of Kelsey Lamont got into the 11 of Adam Misener and around he went into the wall. This old 60’s Chevy still had the chrome bumper and it was dragging and would eventually come off. Chris Howse led early but Brad Collison took the lead out of two on lap four. Shawn Chenoweth had moved up to Collison’s back bumper and the two began a battle. A caution and eventual red flag as the 36 of Hudson Nagy spilled oil and the 21 of Andrew Robertson and 7 of Bobby Mercer got into it spinning out. Nagy stopped at the exit of turn four and oil was every where. Announcer Gary Colling spoke to Nagy on track and he said the drive shaft shot through the front of the car. A big hole to the right of his driver seat and it was lucky he was injured. Chenoweth was the new leader and as the cars came through four Collison got into Chenoweth and 13 was shown the black flag and was to the rear. On the restart Howse and Chenoweth battled and Howse went around in four and Chenoweth was shown the black flag. He stopped on the front stretch to show his displeasure at the call. Collison was the new leader and he held off the pack to pick up the win.
The final race of the night was the 50 lap feature for the OSCAAR Super Late Models. Roy Passer led lap one. Shane Maginnis wasted little time making his way to the front by lap four and taking the lead. He was turning 15 second laps and left the field in his dust.The 4 of J.R. Fitzpatrick was moving up. The fact Fitzpatrick was in this one at all was thanks to Thunder Car driver Bobby Mercer who took the battery out of his truck after the similar one in the 4 car was acting up in the heat race. Fitzpatrick got by Tyler Hawn on lap eighteen to move to fifth. Half way through Roy Passer was second and Glenn Watson on his bumper for third. A caution on lap 32 as Watson came to a stop just short of the exit. This brought the filed back to even and had Fitzpatrick up to second and lined up beside Maginnis for the restart. Maginnis was still in the lead and even through several restarts the 03 showed he was the best car on the night regaining the lead every time and making a clean sweep of his three races winning all three including the 50 lap feature event.
