Season Comes To An End With Championship Night At Flamboro Speedway

Posted on Posted in '17 News
By Randy Spencer for Flamboro Speedway – After a long season of racing it came down to the final race weekend at Bennett Chevrolet Flamboro Speedway to crown the 2017 champions.
The night started with two rained out features from September 2nd, the Pro Four Modifieds were first. Linc Erison and Aaron Turkey were pole. Brian Nanticoke was in a rocket ship on this night and he led all 12 laps to pickup the win.
The Lucas Oil Canadian Vintage Modifieds were next and Steve Trendell trailed Jason Keen by 13 points. Jeremy Barton and Keen led the field to green with Keen leading lap one. A caution on lap five when Bill Stoner and Max Wright were around in 3-4. On the restart, Trendell and Keen got involved and Trendell was around. Another caution on lap eleven and once again Keen and Trendell got into each other. It appeared Keen sustained some damage and he slowed and as the field took checkers it was Trendell crossing the line first. Keen would come home fifth allowing Trendell to get just a little closer.
We then got into regular features on the night. Budget Tire Pure Stocks were first. Rob Shaw and points leader Doug Moir were on the pole. Moir pretty much just had to start both features to win the points title. Moir led lap one. Moir broke away with the Thorne’s, Wayde and Mark close behind. Mark was on Moir’s tail in the points race for most of the year but had some mechanical issues and bad luck and that put him to third place behind Courtney Scott in the standings. Moir would lead flag to flag to put an exclamation mark on his year and pick up the checkers.
Klotz Auto Repair & Engine Machine Shop Mini Stocks were next. This was special for our flagman in training Cameron Thomson as he got a chance to flag the race. Russ Aicken was pole along side Kaitlyn Wallace. Aicken led lap one and got out to a big lead. The real battle was for second through fourth with Rich Schwartzenberg, Matt Young and Shawn Taylor battling throughout. As the double checkers flew it was Aicken pretty much wrapping up a third points title.
Ray’s Auto Centre & Towing Super Stocks were up Nick Troback was leading in points. He had  his back up car put driven by his brother Mike, just in case. Chris Howse and Joe Trafford were pole and Howse led lap one. Nothing was set in this one, it could go to the top two or perhaps three drivers. Chris Howse sat third in points and he and second place driver of Kevin Gallant were at it early, getting into each other on two separate occasions early. This would allow the 74 car of Jaeger McMaster to take the lead on lap five. He started to build a healthy lead but a caution on lap 17 when Trafford went around in 3-4. McMaster didn’t show any effects, continued to lead and picked up the win.
The Pro Four Modifieds were next and this one was already wrapped up some time ago. Dan Nanticoke has won the majority of the features this year. Linc Erison and Brian Nanticoke were pole. Nanticoke led lap one. The Nanticoke brothers broke away with Brian leading Dan. Dan tried to make a move and got loose out of four on lap eight bringing a caution. Brian led from the restart and would go on to take his second win of the night. Dan came home third.
The Canadian Vintage Modifieds were next with Ian McIntyre on the point along side Jeremy Barton. Barton led lap one. Steve Trendell knew he had to give it his all to have any hope of passing Jason Keen in the points. Trendell would be the new leader by lap three. T.J. Marshall was just one point back of Trendell and the two were at each other for the lead. On lap ten through two they made contact and then once again heading into three and the end result, Trendell would hit the wall. Trendell exited the car and as Marshall made his way around, Trendell showed Marshall what he thought. Trendell was off on the hook and any chance he had at the title was now over. As the race continued, Marshall would lead the rest of the way and picked up the win. Jason Keen solidified his hold on the lead coming in second.
Late Models were up Mark Burbridge and Blair Wickett were pole. Wickett led lap one and he would battle Burbridge and Shawn Chenoweth early on. Wickett slowed back to fourth and on lap six Chad Corcoran was into Wickett in turn two and Wickett took a hard hit and his night was over. On the restart, points leader Chenoweth was the new leader and led the rest of the way to pick up the win.
After a brief intermission we got into round two of features. Leo Labarbera and Courtney Scot led the Pure Stocks to green. Scott led lap one and quickly was out to a big lead. As the race wore on, the  second place car of Eric Crow was closing the gap. Then the 90 car of Gary Slama was gaining as well. Slama got by Crow to take over second and was making the final lap interesting. As the cars approached the checkered flag, they were back and forth and to the eye it appeared that perhaps it was Slama but according to the transponder, Courtney Scott was first by .00039 of a second to take the checkers and finish second in points behind champion Doug Moir.
Next would be the Mini Stocks. Jonathan Ayrton and Kyle Istead were pole. Ayrton led lap one but Shawn Taylor who started sixth would be the new leader the second time past. Taylor got out to a big lead with a real battle for second through fourth between Matt Young, Russ Aicken and Erik Dalla Riva. Aicken would get past and was second but didn’t have enough to overtake Taylor. As the checkers flew it was Taylor followed by Aicken and Young. Congratulations to Russ Aicken on his third straight points title. He tied Mike Holmes in 2013 so three wins and a tie over four years for Russ.
The Super Stocks were next and taking the green flag pretty much took the title. Joe Trafford and Bobby Mercer were pole. Troback started fourth and led lap one. He continued to lead but Mercer did all he could to make a pass. He had a very fast car but Troback wouldn’t let him past and would lead flag to flag to take the win and the points title.
The Canadian Vintage Modifieds were up for their final race of the year. Joe Atkinson and Ian McIntyre were pole. Jason Keen was fourth and was the leader first time by. Keen would continue to lead and built a healthy one. T.J. Marshall was beginning to close in but didn’t have enough and it was Keen picking up the win and another championship.
The Pro Fours were next with Gillian Hils and Linc Erison out front. Hils led lap one but before long it was the familiar site of Brian Nanticoke leading followed by Dan. The two had a big lead and Brian held off Dan for the win.
 Final race of the night was for the Late Models. Billy Schwartzenberg and Kevin Albers led the field to green. Schwartzenberg led lap one. Shawn Chenoweth was the leader by lap five and he would make it a clean sweep on the night and picked up the checkers picking up yet another points title. Congratulations to all on a very exciting and successful 2017 race season.

Connor James Wins Battle Brandt Graham Wins War At LOSC Finale At Flamboro Speedway

Posted on Posted in '17 News
By Randy Spencer for Flamboro Speedway – Bennett Chevrolet Flamboro Speedway welcomed the Lucas Oil Sportsman series for their final race of 2017 and the points race like our home series was close making for a nail biter to the very end. Defending champion Brandt Graham led Chad McGlynn by eight points and two fifty lap features would decide the 2017 champ.
Time trials would get the evening underway for twelve cars that would qualify four at a time for six laps each. The weather was warm and sunny and a little humid so the track record of 16.005 set last September by Mike Hrynuik might be challeged. Early on time were 16.3 – 16.6. The top point cars ran last and leader Graham got cose setting the fast time for the night at 16.090. The fast five draw would take place in the pits prior to the first feature to set the top five.
Racing got underway with the Budget Tire Pure Stocks up first. Twelve cars took the green with Leo Labarbera and Mark Thorne pole for this one. Labarbera led lap one but Wayde Thorne in the 43 car would be the new leader next time past. Points leader Doug Moir started ninth but before long he was on Thorne’s tail. The two would battle throughout but Moir couldn’t get past and Thorne picked up the first checkered flag of the night.
Next up was the first feature for the Klotz Auto Repair & Engine Machine Shop Mini Stocks. Mike Gilmour and Matt Young were pole Gilmour led lap one. Jake Gilbert started third and by lap two he was the new leader and would start to put some distance between himself and the rest of the field. A caution on lap nine as the 45 car of Kaitlyn Wallace spun out of two. On the restart, Gilbert would once again be the leader followed closely by Nick Roth in the 71 and Matt Young. Gilbert continued to lead and would come home the winner.
The Pro Four Modifieds were up with Gillian Hils and Linc Erison leading the field to green. Erison started well leading the first five laps but the top car this year by far is the 15 of Dan Nanticoke. He would get by Erison down the back stretch and would get out to a huge lead winning this one going away.
The Lucas Oil Canadian Vintage Modifieds were back in town with a lucky thirteen cars signed in. Jeremy Barton and Ron Easton were on the pole but T.J. Marshall would be the leader first time past the line. Marshall started to breakaway from the second and third place cars of Steve Trendell and Jason Keen. Those two and 1-2 in ponts and have battled all year. The field was back to even as the 12 car of Darren Dryden was around in four on lap 15. On the restart Marshall continued to lead but Keen moved to second. A green-white-checkered finish was in the cards as Dryden was around again in four on lap 18. Marshall continued to lead as the checkers flew followed by Keen and Trendell.
The first 50 lap feature for the LOSC was up and the top five had changed slightly when the fast five draw took place. Qualifying saw Brandt Graham, Connor James, Kevin Gallant, Chad McGlynn and Doug Cathcart set the fast five. After the re-draw the starting order was Gallant, Graham, Cathcart, McGlynn and James. Gallant led lap one. The first caution came out on lap ten. On the restart Gallant continued to lead with McGlynn close behind. Another caution two laps later and this time McGlynn was the leader on the restart. Gallant tagged the wall on lap 24 and he slid back to fourth and eventually retired to the pits on lap 31. McGlynn once again led on the restart with Graham on his bumper. These two have had a feud on recently and some hard feelings apparently. This was evident as Graham would take the lead with about five to go and heading into three with a few laps left, McGlynn would take Graham out sending him into the wall as both cars hit the wall. Graham would exit his car in three and run to four to confront McGlynn. Both cars were penalized to last running position and not DQ’d as usually happens. That gave the lead and caution-checkers victory to Connor James who was just 17 points back of the leader going in. The final 50 lap race would be for all the marbles and be very exciting!!
After a brief intermission we got into round two of features. Pure Stocks hit the track with Paul Ditner and Mark Dennis up front. Wayde Thorne won the first feature but would be a no show as he was having troubles getting the car started. Ditner led lap one. Eric Crow would be the leader on lap two with Courtney Scott up to second followed by Gary Slama. The 90 car of Slama would take over second out of four on lap ten and would be on Crow’s bumper until lap 18 when going into three he got past and would take the checkers.
Mini Stocks were next and Mike Hooper and Kaitlyn Wallace led sixteen cars to green. Wallace led one. An early caution as Mike Gilmour was sideways out of two and the 84 of David Gallinger had no where to go and ran into Gilmour. Neither were able to continue. On the restart Matt Young was the new leader. A new engine seemed to be just what he needed as he was fast on the night. Young would lead for several laps until he and the 86 of Erik Dalla Riva got into each other through 3-4 on lap 12 but no caution. A few laps later Dalla Riva was around in two and caution flew. On the restart it was Rich Schwartzenberg now leading. He was out front and looked like he might win this one but spun through 3-4 on the last lap and that allowed Jake Gilbert to get past and go two for two on the night.
The Pro Fours were next and Mike Westwood and Linc Erison led the field to green. Westwood led early but the 15 car of Dan Nanticoke once again was the class of the field and would take the lead on lap four and ran away and hid from the rest of the field.
The Canadian Vintage Modifieds were next up with Darren Dryden and Bob Gilbert on the pole. Dryden led lap one and started to build a big lead. The field would be back to even as the 57 of Steve Trendell was around in three on lap 12. That wouldn’t faze Dryden as he would once again build a healthy lead and win by a fair margin over T.J. Marshall and Jason Keen. Dryden has raced a lot of different divisions this year and with good equipment comes some good results. Congratulations Darren!!
The final race of the night was the second 50 lapper for the LOSC. Alvin McNicol and Brent Wheller were up front for this one. McNicol led early and a caution on lap ten as McNicol, Kevin Gallant and Doug Cathcart were involved. McNicol was black flagged s an invovled car but refused to move. He eventually was given the choice to move or be disqualified and would head to the rear of the field. Connor James would take the lead followed by Brandt Graham. Chad McGlynn’s title hopes came to and end on lap 22 as he made his way to the pits. James continued to lead and Graham seemed to be happy with second knowing he would likely be the champ if he finished where he was. A few tries to take the lead but as the checkers flew it was Connor James picking up the win and overall winner on the night and the 2017 LOSC points champion wuld be Brandt Graham.
That brought to a close another exciting night of racing at Bennett Chevrolet Flamboro Speedway. Join us next Saturday, September 23rd for Championship Night where we will crown six champions. The Grisdale Late Models will return with the Budget Tire Pure Stocks, the Klotz Auto Repair & Engine Machine Shop Mini Stocks, the Ray’s Auto Centre & Towing Super Stocks, the Pro Four Modifieds and the Lucas Oil Canadian Vintage Modifieds. The Pro Four’s and CVM will run three features, the rest will run two. Pits open at 4pm, front gates at 5pm with racing at 630pm. Check the website, www.flamborospeedway.ca for all the details and the points standings, some are really tight so that will be an all or nothing night for many drivers!!

Girl Power On Display On Memorial Night At Flamboro Speedway

Posted on Posted in '17 News
By Randy Spencer for Flamboro Speedway – It was the annual Memorial Night at Bennett Chevrolet Flamboro Speedway and the girls were out to show they are just as capable of winning as the boys are. Stock car racing as been primarily a male sport over time but without a doubt Flamboro has had its share of very good female racers over the years. Courtney Scott and Gillian Hils proved they are very capable racers picking up feature wins here Saturday Night.
Racing got underway at 6pm with 2-1/2 features off the top from last Saturdays show that were postponed due to wet track conditions. The Mini Stocks were first and they got in 9 laps before the rain hit last week and that’s where we picked up. On the restart, Shawn Taylor was up front and he led from the green flag until the end and would win the first feature of the night.
Super Stocks were next with Carson Nagy and Jaeger McMaster on the pole. Nagy would lead early with McMaster close behind. They raced that way for seven laps until McMaster got into Nagy causing a spin and the caution. That would put the leaders to the back and Brandon McFerran and Nick Troback would take their place as the new leaders. Troback led from the restart and another caution on lap 12 as McMaster slowed and came to a stop just off the racing surface on the front stretch. McFerran was the leader this time and he held off the pack and picked up the win.
Late Models were up with Gary Elliott and Blair Wickett leading the field to green. Wickett led lap one but Shawn Chenoweth was the leader the next time by. The top two runners started to put some distance between themselves and the rest of the pack. Jeff Ruddy brought out a caution as he went around in 1-2 on lap 17 and by this time Billy Schwartzenberg had joined the party at the front. On the restart it was Chenoweth and Schwartzenberg and they would have an ongoing feud all night. The two broke away but Chenoweth would hold off Schwartzenberg for the first Late Model feature of the night.
We then got into our regular program with Pure Stocks hitting the track for the first of their two 20 lap features on the night. Doug Moir was pole along side Leo Labarbera. Moir is having an outstanding season and going into the night he had fairly good lead over the second place car of Mark Thorne. Moir has 1621, Thorne 1573 and Courtney Scott is having a very strong year and is third with 1552.  Moir led lap one but it wasn’t long before Courtney Scott was on a roll. She would be the new leader next time by and started to build a nice lead and won quite handily. Great to see Courtney having such a great year. Good for her and all those young female race fans out there to have someone to look up to. Also nice third place finish by Chris Pendlebury, he looked pretty happy as he crossed the line!
Mini Stocks were next and Kaitlyn Wallace and Erik Dalla Riva were out front. Wallace in her rookie season is having a strong run as well. She sits in sixth in points just two behind Mike Hooper for fifth. Dalla Riva, who’s experience is road racing and the like hasn’t taken too long adapting to the oval track. He has picked up several feature wins this summer after picking up the car from Billy Schwartzenberg. He would lead lap one but a caution would bring the field back to even. On the restart it was Jake Gilbert taking the lead and he wouldn’t look back and was the winner. Russ Aicken still leads points going in, 1411 to 1367 for Allie Ditner but he had a DNF as his problems seem to be mounting ever since he wrecked in early August.

The Ontario Pro Challenge were in town for their final appearance of the 2017 campaign. They are one of the last remaining divisions to still run heats and one feature. In heat one, Larry Majuery and Mike Johnston were pole. Johnston led lap one and battled throughout the ten laps with the 5 car of Paul Klager but Johnston held off Klager to pick up his first win.
Super Stocks were next and this division is at a dead heat going in. Nick Troback and Brandon McFerran are tied at 1313 points a piece. Troback was pole with Carson Nagy to his outside. Troback got out to a good lead and would win going away. McFerran was fifth in this one.
Late Models were next and Blair Wickett and Hudson Nagy led a twelve pack of cars to green for their first 25 lap feature. Wickett led lap one. A caution on lap three as the 14 car of Keith Temple was slowing an came to a stop on the front stretch. On the restart Billy Schwartzenberg was the leader. He started to build a sizeable lead and it was a full straight away at one point. Chenoweth, Wickett and Chad Corcoran were battling for second through fourth. A caution on lap 21 and the 88 of Scott Gibson and Jeff Ruddy were involved in turn two. Not what Schwartzenberg wanted, the filed was back to even. As the field took the green, looked like maybe some contact caused Wickett to get loose, he tagged the wall and turned back into traffic and clipped the 02 of Mark Burbridge. Wickett lost the nose of his car and Burbridge was around tagging the wall on his left side. Once again contact on the restart and Schwartzenberg was around as Shawn Chenoweth was into him. Schwartzenberg was facing the wrong way in turn one and as Chenoweth made his way around again Schwartzenberg started to pull away causing Chenoweth to stop. On the restart Schwartzenberg was behind Chenoweth. One lap past but as the cars were going through1-2, Schwartzenberg was into Chenoweth and a big smoke show was the result as Chenoweth was around. Race director Doug Leonard had had enough and told both drivers to take it to the pits. Heading into the night, Chenoweth lead Schwartzenberg by nine points. On the restart, just six cars remained for the final six laps. Chad Corcoran was the new leader and he held on until the checkers for the victory.
The last race before intermission was the second heat for the Ontario Pro Challenge. Rick Seeley and Peter Hattin were out front for this ten lapper. Hattin led early and would continue until lap eight when Kyle Batty got past down the back stretch and would pick up the heat win.
We then went to out intermission and the Highway Men Car Club were on hand with a fine display of classic cars. They would take several laps around the oval, many doing burn outs and showing off their beautiful classic cars. We then honored the many drivers and crew members that left us too soon and the names were read allowed by Gary Colling for our annual Memorial Night.
As we got back to racing, Pure Stocks were led to green by John Ditner and Matt Fraser. Fraser led lap one but a caution the next lap as Mark Dennis was around in two. Ditner led the restart but three wide action the next time by gave the lead to Mark Thorne. He would lead until lap seven when Gillian Hils got past through 3-4. Hils started to build a nice lead in no time but a caution would even it up. Hils led on the restart and once again started to build a good lead. Girl Power was strong in this one as Hils came cross the line first with Courtney Scott coming second. At the end of the night, Moir was leading in points with 1718 but the race for second shrank as Scott closed the lead on Thorne from 21 points to now just 7.
Mini Stocks were next with Jonathan Ayrton and David Gallinger on the pole. Gallinger led lap one. Before long, race one winner Shawn Taylor was battling Gallinger. Taylor started eighth in the field but was side by side with Gallinger as the two would head down the back stretch. As they came out of four and made their way down the front stretch, Taylor would take the lead. Gallinger wouldn’t let Taylor too far out of his sights and the two broke way. A fine race for third and fourth was shaping up as Ayrton and Mike Gilmour were battling hard. Gilmour moved to third on lap 12 and a “gaggle” of five cars made it exciting. As the race progressed Taylor once again started to break away and won handily. Great to see David Gallinger come home second in this one!!
Super Stocks were next and this one saw Brad Collison and Brandon McFerran on the pole. Collison led lap one. They would battle close early on but McFerran got a little too close on lap ten and Collison was around. That would make the two lead cars Nick Troback and Chris Howse. These two have battled hard all year and tonight was no different. A side by side battle would soon see Troback take the lead and hold off the pack for the win. Tied going in, Troback would hold a 12 point lead when all was said and done on this night. Just a note in this one, Brad Collison’s spin to the infield saw him take out one of those little trees on the grass on the front stretch. These were planted by the Waterloo Regional Kart Club, namely Brad’s father, Flamboro Speedway Hall of Famer Jim Collison. Brad was joking later about it and I know that all of us in the booth were wondering when that would happen. Took quite a few years but it happened. Sure Jim will “nurse” it back to health. Not sure what we will do several years down the road when those trees maybe bigger than some of the race cars out there.
Late Models were next and I’m sure most like myself were eagerly anticipating the resumption of the fireworks from the last race that saw Billy Schwartzenberg and Shawn Chenoweth sent to the pits. Jeff Ruddy and Hudson Nagy were pole for this one and Chenoweth would start fourth with Schwartzenberg fifth. Ruddy led lap one. Mark Burbridge took the green but retired to the pits after taking one lap. Ruddy was around through 1-2 on lap four as Chad Corcoran made contact with him. Chenoweth was the leader on the restart. Another caution on lap nine saw the cars back to even and on the restart the battle would be back as Chenoweth and Schwartzenberg battled. Chenoweth would continue to lead as Schwartzenberg battled hard with Corcoran. Chad got past Billy for second and the three would battle close for the remainder with Chenoweth picking up the win. When all was said and done at the end of the night, Chenoweth led Schwartzenberg by 13 points.
Last race of the night saw the feature for the Ontario Pro Challenge. Mike Johnston and Paul Klager led the field of eleven cars to green. A tight pack entered 1-2 on lap one and it appeared (on the video) that the 8 of Peter Hattin slid up the track and tagged the 83 of Tim Batty causing him to hit the wall. Rick Seeley had to let off the gas, tagged the wall and the 88 got sideways as did the 38 of Kyle Batty. The 3 of Dean Pronovost was around and the 4 of Darren Dryden stopped to avoid. On the restart, Klager was the leader. Tim Norris who has owned Flamboro over the past decade was up to second on lap three. A few laps later Norris took the lead through 3-4. Darren Dryden with his first time racing with the OPC started dead last and by lap eleven was up to third. A caution on lap 22 as Larry Majuery slowed off the surface to the grass. Norris led once again and would not look back as he led to the checkers for the feature win. Good job Darren Dryden coming in second!!
That brought to a close another very exciting night of racing at Bennett Chevrolet Flamboro Speedway. Congratulations to all the winners, especially the double winners, Shawn Taylor, Shawn Chenoweth and Nick Troback!!

Josh Shantz Has HUGE Pay Day At Flamboro Speedway Enduro 400

Posted on Posted in '17 News
By Randy Spencer for Flamboro Speedway – With the summer winding down it is Enduro time and the first of two was on tap Labour Day Monday afternoon at Bennett Chevrolet Flamboro Speedway. 400 laps of intense action was set to go. This year we used the transponders from the Waterloo Regional Kart Club to help so we wouldn’t have any issues like what happened last year. One of the biggest pay days in Flamboro history with $12,000 going to the winner.
Fifty seven drivers were registered and after working the bugs out of the transponder system we were set to go. The cars took green and the 14 car of James Townsend was the leader after 1 of 400. He would lead for a while but Rodney Rutherford, the winner of two enduros last year was the new leader. Gary Slama was the leader a few laps later and would settle in for a while as the lead car. Things would start to get messy as parts were everywhere and as the cars entered turn three on lap 66 the 20 car of A.J. Lupton got a flat and took a hard hit into the turn four wall. A couple cars piled in behind and the red was quickly out. Emergency crews rushed to the scene and Lupton was injured and would require some outside help.
Hamilton Fire and EMS were summoned to the track and they would extricate Lupton from the car. His car was destroyed and Lupton was in some pain and distress. He was removed on a back board and taken to hospital. Haven’t heard the extent of injuries but he seems to be better than he was. Get well soon A.J., not the way you wanted your first race experience to end up. On the restart, Slama continued to lead. Josh Shantz was soon up to Slama’s bumper and they battled for a many laps. By lap 100, Shantz was the new leader. He would build a half track lead by 135 and by 175 Shantz, Dave Bailey and Steve Lovie were the only cars on the lead lap.
A pre-determined fuel stop on lap 205 as the cars filled with fuel for the final 195 laps to the end. Shantz continued to lead and as the laps wound down Shantz and Bailey were the only cars on the lead lap. With checkers in sight it was Josh Shantz picking up the $12,000 first prize followed by two familiar faces, Dave Bailey picking up $5,000 and Rodney Rutherford coming third taking home $3,000.
Great race and lots of excitement. Big thanks to all the drivers, crew and the scorers. Very big thanks to Waterloo Regional Kart Club, especially to Christine Dryden for running the scoring system. It made our lives so much easier, she’ll be back for the Halloween 300 Enduro October 21st with $8,000 to the winner as well as a Demolition Derby.

Rain Cuts Racing Short At Flamboro Speedway

Posted on Posted in '17 News
By Randy Spencer for Flamboro Speedway – Cool weather for the final Saturday show before Labour Day at Bennett Chevrolet Flamboro Speedway but rain would be in the forecast for later in the day.  It was the annual Fan Appreciation Night and Corn Roast. The Grisdale Late Models made their return after three weeks off and were joined by the Klotz Auto Repair & Engine Machine Shop Mini Stocks, the Budget Tire Pure Stocks,  Ray’s Auto Centre & Towing Super Stocks, the Pro Four Modifieds and the Lucas Oil Canadian Vintage Modifieds.
Pure Stocks were first up with points leader Doug Moir on the pole. Ryan Howell was on the outside. Moir had strengthened his lead in the points race and now holds a 48 point advantage on the second place car of Mark Thorne. Moir led lap one. Early on some bashing and crashing which saw the 50 of Ross Winters blacked flagged for rough driving. A caution on lap twelve brought the field back to even. Moir would continue to lead and another caution as Clinton Kerkhof and Gary Slama got into each other down the front stretch. That wouldn’t faze Moir, he led flag to flag to pick up the win.
Mini Stocks next and a couple of hard hitters out front. Erik Dalla Riva and Russ Aicken were pole. Dalla Riva led lap one. The real battle through out the race was between Aicken, Shawn Taylor and Allie Ditner. Dalla Riva would continue to lead and led flag to flag for the win.
Flamboro Speedway Mini Stocks Sept. 2, 2017
1 st feature for the Mini Stocks
The Canadian Vintage Modifieds were in town and hit the track next for their first feature. Bill Stoner and Jeremy Barton led the field to green. Barton would lead early and the fifth and sixth cars in the field, Steve Trendell and  T.J. Marshall, were battling their way to the front. Trendell would be the leader the third time past. Heading out of four, the 654 car of Max Wright tangled with John Karley and both cars were unable to continue. Another caution and a black flag to the 92 of Brian Atkinson as he got into the 88 of Bill Stoner. Trendell continued to lead on the restarts and would take the checkered flag. Heading into action tonight, Jason Keen led Trendell by a mere ten points. Keen would come third just behind Marshall.
Flamboro Speedway Canadian Vintage Modifieds Sept. 2, 2017
1 st feature for the Canadian Vintage Modifieds
Super Stocks were next with Chris Howse and Jaeger McMaster out front. Howse led until lap seven when heading down the back stretch, Brad Collison would make a move down the back stretch followed by Bobby Mercer. Howse got stuck on the outside and fell back to fifth. A caution with five laps to go would bring the field back to even. Collison would continue to lead but Mercer gave him all he could handle. At the checkers it was Collison coming across first. Nice to see Brad back in victory lane. He has had a rough year.
Flamboro Speedway Superstocks Sept. 2, 2017
1 st feature for the Superstocks
Late Models were next and Shawn Chenoweth and Hudson Nagy led thirteen cars to green. Chenoweth led lap one and as the cars were heading through 1-2, Nagy bobbled and that caused Gary Elliott to get loose and he was around into the grass. No caution as Elliott got it going. Chenoweth continued to lead and Blair Wickett was gaining. A few cautions around half way but Chenoweth continued to lead. With three laps to go Wickett got into the back of Chenoweth in four and the caution flew. Both cars took up position at the rear of the field. That would see Billy Schwartzenberg take over as leader. He led the final three laps to pickup the victory.
Flamboro Speedway Pro Late Models Sept. 2, 2017
1 st feature race for the Pro Late Models
The Pro Four Modifieds were the last race before intermission. Brian Nanticoke and Shannon Morris were pole and Nanticoke led early. Brian would continue to lead and before long, brother Dan was on his tail. Mark Lucas was right there as well but he would soon slow and retire to the infield. With three laps to go, Dan past brother Brian to take the lead and pick up the win.
After a brief intermission it was the second Pure Stock feature. Paul Ditner and Rob Shaw were out front and Ditner led lap one. He went high in four and that would give the lead to Matt Fraser. He led the next ten laps but Doug Moir made a criss-cross move out of four and would take the lead down the front stretch. Andy Wheller started at the rear and was slowly picking off spots. With five laps to go he was up to second. A couple of cautions brought everything to even. It was a green, white checkered finish and Moir would try his best to hold off Wheller but the crafty veteran mad his move heading into three on the final lap. Moir got a little high, Wheller went to low and came across the line first.
Flamboro Speedway Pure Stocks Sept. 2, 2017
2nd feature race for the Pure Stocks
The Mini Stocks were up and Mike Hooper led lap one. David Gallinger would lead next and then some cautions and a few rain drops started to fall making the track slick. Allie Ditner got high heading into one and was around he she would head for the pits. On the restart Shawn Taylor got by Gallinger for the lead followed by Aicken. Several cars spun due to the rain so the caution came out. Things got slick and we were unable to continue so the racing was done for the night. We got past half way so it was an official night. We will make up the rest of that race and the other rained out features over the next few weeks. Check the website for details, www.flamborospeedway.com Fans and drivers made their way to the pits to enjoy some corn and hot dogs and the lineup was long.
Please join us Saturday, September 9th as the Highwaymen Car club will have approximately 200 cars out. Come early to see them outside the front grandstands. Also it will be Memorial Night where we remember the racers and pit crew members that all left us way to soon.
The Late Models will return along with Pure Stocks, Mini Stocks, Super Stocks and the Ontario Pro Challenge. Also running triple features for Late Models and Super Stocks. Pits open at 3pm, front gates at 5pm with racing at 6pm.
