Neely, Jones, McFerran & Rutherford Win At Flamboro

By Randy Spencer for OntarioOval.com – Racing at Flamboro Speedway  featured two touring groups Saturday night, the winged warriors of speed the Can-Am TQ Midgets and the Canadian Vintage Modifieds along with weekly divisions the Ponderosa Nature Resort Mini Stocks and Pure Stocks.

The Pure Stocks opened the night with their heat and Derek Martin, who had been away for the past few races, came across the finish line first but in the opinion of the starter, Martin had pulled out of line and was penalized one spot for jumping on the start. That gave the win to Kyle Beaudin. The Mini Stocks came out for a couple of heat races. Mike Holmes and Rob Hoskins picked up wins. Hoskins, nicknamed the ‘Hero of Harley’ had bus load of screaming fans out to support him and he didn’t disappoint.  The Canadian Vintage Modifieds were up for three heat races. The first race was called after 6 laps when the #09 car of Nick Lees dropped some oil. Rookie Joe Atkinson was the first heat winner. The next two heats went to Jeff Shaw and Bob Gilbert. The Can-Am Midgets finished off qualifying with heat wins going to Darren McLennan and James Gray.

Gord Bennett and his Full Throttle Late Model took to the track for their usual two seater ride along car and had a draw. Gord also took out long time Flamboro head scorer Brenda Shunamon in the car. She loved it and had the biggest smile when she got out.  A special fan was on hand as the Canadian Vintage Modified club headed by John Karley and along with Gord Bennett and Mike Kenny wanted to do something special for Gary Meinzinger who  has cancer. Gord wants to become involved with a charity to do special rides like this for fans young and old that love to racing or want to experience a thrill. By the look on Gary’s face i think it did what Gord had hoped. As the car turned laps the entire field of CVM’s lined up with their cars in the infield and as the #67 Late Model roared past, the drivers all raised their helmets out of respect to Gary and is serious battle with cancer. What a  nice touch. Dave Franks took some great photos and it was well done by all.

Feature races were up and the Pure Stocks came out first. Davey Boughton who has been blowing everyone’s doors off of late seemed to slow and didn’t keep up with the leader, #38 Rodney Rutherford. Rodney built a huge lead but a caution on lap 8 brought the field back to even. Rutherford wasted no time however and burst out a big lead once again and won it going away. Nice to see some more drivers out including Danny Shantz, father of the #1 Mini Stock Josh Shantz and two other interesting combatants, Thunder Car driver, the ‘Flying Farmer’ Kevin Gallant, testing out Joe Gallant’s car and a nice looking car, #3 driven by former Mini Stock champion, Ron Larkin Jr.

Twenty one Mini Stocks took the green for their 25 lap feature race. Early on Rob Hoskins tagged the wall between turns one and two and it didn’t look good for the ‘Rabbit’. His fan club looked dismayed but after entering the pits he made it out and lined up at the back of the pack to take the green for the restart. He wasted no time and mad a bee line for the front slowing picking off cars as the laps ticked down. The story up front was the battle between a couple young guns. Thirteen year old Brandon McFerran battled current Mini Stock points leader Billy ‘The Kid’ Schwartezenburg, himself just turned 19. Russ Aicken bolted out and led laps 1 to 4 but Billy took over the lead and led until lap 11 when McFerran got by and led the rest of the way picking up his first Flamboro feature win. That’s two in a row as he won the last regular night feature at Sunset Speedway on August 4th. Rob Hoskins who started at the back after the early meeting wit the wall, made it interesting and ended up finishing in third to the delight of his fan club.

The Lucas Oil Canadian Vintage Modifieds lined up 19 cars to take the green with Rick Schurr on the pole. Rick is the son of the first owner at Flamboro over 50 years ago, Glen Schurr who ran the #36 Super Modified at Flamboro for years and was actually the track champion way back in 1966. Rick Schurr led the pack for the first few laps and looked good. A couple of other cars behind were chomping at the bit looking for a way past and finally a tap to the back bumper sent the 2011 CVM Rookie of the Year spinning to the infield. That put the #00 of Bob Gilbert and #82 of Corey Jones out front and the two battled for the remainder of the race. Jones assumed the lead and held off Gilbert to pick up the win, his second straight Flamboro feature victory.

The last race of the night was the Lucas Oil Can Am Midgets and the waged a great battle as always. Thirteen cars took the green and the birthday boy,    #39 of Corey Moesker led early but James Gray and Todd Cresswell got by and battled for the remainder of the race, all the way to the last lap when the two spun in turns 3 and 4 bringing out the caution. That moved the third and fourth place cars of Rob Neely and Mack Deman to the front of the class for the green, white checkered finish. It was an exciting race to the end as the two were side by side but as they crossed the start/finish line it was Neely edging out Deman by a wheel for the victory. With the win Neely took over top spot in the Can Am Midget points standings with 1894 points followed by Darren McLennan with 1888 and Mack DeMan in third at 1878 points. According to the club’s website, it was one of the closest finishes in the 47 year history of the Lucas Oil Can-Am Midgets. Exciting race for sure!!!

Watson Wins; Shaw Crowned Grisdale Champion At Flamboro

By Randy Spencer for OntarioOval.com – Mother Nature played havoc with stock car racing all over the province Saturday and Flamboro Speedway was no exception. But the third and final installment of the 10th anniversary Grisdale Triple Crown Series for Late Models went off Sunday afternoon. Going into the event David Elliott led Paul Howse by just 10 points, Jason Shaw was 11 points back and Brennan Didero was 12 points out.

Qualifying got underway at 4 pm with the first of four Late Model heats. Paul Howse looked to have his car running on all cylinders picking up the first heat win of the night. Rookie Dale Shaw battled dad Jason in heat #2 and came up holding the checkered flag. In the Pro 4 heat, Can AM Midget driver Rob Divenanzo came across the line first but a penalty gave the win to the second place car of Cliff Hodgkinson. The Ray’s Auto Center & Towing Thunder Cars had two heat races with the #02 of Mark Burbridge returning to victory lane followed by Gary Slama in heat #2. Round two of qualifying for the Grisdale Late Models was as exciting as the first round with Jamie Cox from Delaware Speedway and the veteran past champion Scott Lyons picking up the final two heat wins.

A brief intermission saw the #67 two seater Late Model driven by Gord Bennett take a few lucky ticket holders out for a few laps around Flamboro Speedway. Young or old, everyone exits the car smiling from ear to ear, a great experience you don’t want to miss!! Visit http://www.fullthrottlemarketing.ca for more information!!

Feature races took to the track and the Pro 4 Modifieds were up first. A few notable cars missing in action included John Verney, Mark Lucas and Craig Shaver who had his car out but never made it on the track. Also missing was the veteran Dave Hodgkinson who is recovering from a broken foot. Rob Divenanzo was behind the wheel and started 8th in the field but quickly made his way through traffic and held off Blake Bomberry and Dave Asbury Jr. to pick up his second consecutive Pro 4 Modified feature, in just his second night in the car.

The Late Models 75 lap feature was up next and the cars lined up on the front straight for driver introductions. Bill Grisdale, Adam Lockwood and track owner John Casale greeted each driver as they were introduced. Two noticeable absences were the #05 of Brad Corcoran who was in sixth spot in the standings, just 17 points behind the leader David Elliott and #24 Brennan Didero who was in fourth spot just 12 points behind the leader. Didero put on a tremendous smoke show in practice as he blew the head gasket on the car. The crew loaded quickly and headed back to the shop in Ancaster but unfortunately were unable to make it back in time for the feature. Another story line in this race was Paul Howse. He broke the clutch on his #8 car in heat races so Shane Gowan loaned his car to Howse who was just 10 points behind Elliott for the championship. Lots of visiting drivers were on hand including Jamie Cox, Mark Watson, Gary Elliott, Trevor Monaghan, Tim Gordon, Mike Bentley and T.J. Marshall. Marshall who races the specials at Flamboro had the throttle stick in practice and hit the wall hard and didn’t make any of the races.

As the drivers got buckled in and the famous words of Gentleman start your engines rang out, the sound of roaring race cars filled the air. Jason Shaw was on the pole and he kept the car out front for the first 40 laps. The race was moving along at a good pace but as the saying goes, cautions breed cautions. Shaw went around in turns 1 and 2 and Mark Watson assumed the lead. By lap 45 we had lost 1/3 of the field and that included Trevor Monaghan with a blown engine and Jamie Cox on lap 44 when he got mixed up with Scott Lyons into the turn three wall. That brought out the red flag as the cars were separated and the drivers exited their cars on got some cold drinks during the brief delay. On the restart Paul Howse had some problems and was unable to make it back from the pits. Rookie Dale Shaw went around in turns 1 and 2 on lap 51 and he went to the back. David Elliott seemed to be a shoe in for the title but his car seemed to lose some momentum and started falling off the pace. As the race neared completion, Delware racer Mark Watson started to pull away from Mike Bentley and Jason Shaw and came across as the winner as the checkered flag flew. When the numbers with tallied Jason Shaw was the winner of the Grisdale championship just three points better than David Elliott and rookie Dale Shaw came in third. The final feature of the night was for the Thunder Cars and the brothers Burbridge put on a clinic. The two cars got out front then ran away from the pack with Mark taking the checkered flag and brother Rick coming in a close second.

That brought an end to another spectacular night of racing.

Howse, Shaw & Boughton Win Before Rains Fall At Flamboro

By Randy Spencer for OntarioOval.com – Another hot night at the track greeted an enthusiastic and excited crowd of junior race fans on hand for the annual Kids Ride Night. Lots of smiles and happy kids got to ride in cars between 5 and 6 pm. Ronald McDonald House Hamilton also benefited from the night as donations were taken for such a worthy cause.

The Pure Stocks had nine cars on hand and were up first in qualifying. A great battle between Peter Becker and Davey Boughton with Becker holding off the “Wild Thing” for the checkered flag. Ponderosa Nature Resort Mini Stocks followed with two heats, Ken Stenhouse and Mike Holmes picked up wins. Ray’s Auto Center & Towing Thunder Cars had two heats as well with Rick Burbridge returning to victory lane along with Brad Collison picking up another victory as well. Then the sky opened up and a rain came causing a delay. Track officials decided to use this as intermission and several race cars and other vehicles dried the track. Gord Bennett had his Full Throttle two seater Late Model out to test the track and give a few rides to make sure the track was ready to race once again.

The Pure Stocks had their feature first. Davey Boughton got out to an early lead but Tyler Martin took off and led for 10 laps. An early caution came out as rookie Adam McQuinn hit some wet track and hit the wall hard between turns 3 and 4. On lap 11 Peter Becker took over the lead but was shown the black flag by the starter and made his way to the back. This allowed Boughton and Rodney Rutherford to take over the lead. A couple laps later, Rutherford got sideways and went backwards into the wall going down the front straight. Davey Boughton held the lead for the last six laps and took the checkered flag. An exciting race and some hard feelings on and off the track after the race.

The Grisdale Late Models finally hit the track for their two heat races with wins going to Jeff Stewart and Jason Shaw. The Mini Stock Feature saw sixteen cars take the green and and exciting race took place. Samantha Shaw started mid way back in the pack but soon found her way behind the leader and current points leader Billy Schwartzenburg. The two Spira team-mates battled back and forth, putting on a great show but Sam took the lead and held off the charging pack picking up her first feature victory. The aptly named Thunder Cars took to the track but were delayed momentarily as track officials were deciding whether to risk starting the race with intense thunder and lightning all around. The race got underway and Chris Howse battled with a half dozen cars but as the race reached the half way point the sky once again opened up and the night was called and Howse picked up his first feature win as well. The Late Models feature was postponed and it will be run as part of their next “regular” show, which isn’t until September 1st. They will run this feature first on that night.

That brought an end to another night of racing, please join us next Saturday for the third and final installment of the 10th Anniversary Triple Crown Tournament presented by Grisdale Racing Products. A 75 lap invitational event for Late Models (rain date next day, afternoon, Sunday August 12) plus Thunder Cars, F4 Modifieds and the Ontario Pro Challenge.

Richardi Wins Northern Border Challenge At Flamboro Speedway

By Randy Spencer for OntarioOval.com – A highly anticipated night of racing as the Pro 4 Modified race club was on center stage with the Northern Border Challenge, touted as a battle between Team Canada and Team U.S.A. Round one was to take place Friday night at Delaware Speedway outside of London but Mother Nature had other plans and the race was cancelled.

A large crowd was on hand as the weather was great once again and many in attendance would have sworn there was a full moon (there wasn’t). Flamboro on and off track staff were kept very busy all night. Racing lasted much longer than normal but all in all it was a great night at the track. Twenty-five mini stocks were registered and they would run three heats as well as a consi. Heat victories went to Mike Holmes, Russ Aicken and Dave Bailey. Thunder Car heat wins went to Jeff Bean and Brad Collison. Late Model heat winners were Brad Corcoran and Jason Shaw. The F4 Modifieds had 20 cars on hand for the first annual Northern Border Challenge. Both heat wins went to visitors from the eastern U.S., Rob Richardi Jr. and Dave Richardi. They also ran a consi with a local racer and past F4 champion Mark Lucas picking up the checkered flag. Congratulations to Dominic Commissio, Craig Shaver, John Verney and the rest of the Pro 4 club for such a great event. Good to hear plans are underway for the second annual event in 2013! Nice to see Stan “The Man” Pokupec back behind the wheel as well.

Intermission saw the #67 two seater Late Model driven by Gord Bennett take a few lucky ticket holders out for a few laps around Flamboro Speedway. Young or old, everyone exits the car smiling from ear to ear, a great experience you don’t want to miss!! Visit http://www.fullthrottlemarketing.ca for more information!!

Feature racing got underway with the Ponderosa Nature Resort Mini Stocks up first. Heat racing went off pretty well with just a few cautions but an unusual amount of red flags during the feature events prolonged the racing and the final checkered flag flew after 11:30pm. As I say, an unusual night at the track. Eric Van Wyngaarden probably wished he had loaded the car on the trailer after losing a tire in turn four back in the first race of the evening. He did come back and dominated the consi for the win and was running well in the feature until he got stuck in lapped traffic coming out of turn two and swerved to avoid a slower car and went head first hard into the wall. Track Meds. Todd and Lou took there time checking Eric who appeared to have some discomfort and pain in his back, neck and head. A Hamilton hospital ambulance was dispatched and while waiting several of the mini stock drivers came over the wall to sign autographs for the large crowd of young fans. Another ambulance was called as the first one was close by but had another patient. Eric was eventually removed and from what I heard later everything seemed to check out ok for Eric, let’s hope he’s back soon. When the race got back underway, Rob Hoskins led early but seemed to slow a bit and the four time and defending champion Dave Bailey took over the lead and put some distance between himself and the rest of the pack and took the checkered flag.

Ray’s Auto Center & Towing Thunder Cars were up next for their 25 lap feature. The #02 Mark Burbridge broke a timing chain in practice and was done for the night. Mark and brother Rick for that matter have had either been in victory lane or on the back of a tow truck all season. Hope the luck turns back to good soon. Rick made it an interesting race as he battled with Nick Troback and looked to be gaining but Shawn Arnott, Kevin Albers and Gary Slama got by. Nice to see Nick Troback get the #73 back in victory lane, he was a happy guy as he was interviewed in victory lane. Another delay as the ambulance was called to the grandstand side for an injury to a fan. The guys were kept really busy tonight, good job by Todd and Lou! The Grisdale Late Model feature got underway and a few cautions slowed things up but a great race for sure. Dale Shaw showed a great veteran move by a rookie and led early. But three veterans, Paul Howse, dad Jason Shaw and Jeff Stewart got by Dale and put on a great show as well. Paul Howse held off the wolves and picked up his second straight Grisdale Late Model feature win in as many weeks.

The F4 Modified feature took to the track at about 10:40 and as the cars were taking some hot laps, the engine of the #46 Lisa Hodgkinson let go between turn three and four and brought out the red as the track sweeper was put into action. Too bad for Lisa, she was really looking forward to this race weekend after being without her car after the team had some issues with their tow vehicle breaking down a few weeks back as they made a visit down to the eastern U.S. states preparing for this weekend. The cars eventually took the green but four laps in a visible trail of oil was evident and before it was really noticed there was 3 or 4 lines all the way around the track. The red flag was shown again and another unusual lengthy delay took place as the clean up crew and track sweeper went to work again to clean up the mess. The F4 club agreed amongst themselves before the start that they would drop the race back to 25 laps from 35 due to how late the show was running. The green flew again and the rest of the race went off pretty clean. Three of the top five finishing positions went to our friends from the U.S. Rob Richardi Jr. was first followed by Dave Richardi with Stan Mertz finishing fourth. John Verney and Mark Lucas finished third and fifth respectively and Lucas was named Hard Charger as he moved the most spots from his starting spot deep in the field. Great job by all the racers and Flamboro staff tonight!!

That brought an end to another spectacular night of racing. Make sure you join us next Saturday night as Flamboro Speedway will host the annual Kids Rides Night, with all junior race fans having the opportunity to catch a ride in a race car.

Howse Hauls In Another Feature Win At Flamboro Speedway

By Randy Spencer for OntarioOval.com – Saturday night saw the return of the Grisdale Late Models, the Ponderosa Nature Resort Mini Stocks and the Pro Stocks and they were joined by the Ray’s Auto Center & Towing Thunder Cars.

The Pro Stocks got the program underway with their heat race. The “Wild Thing” Davy Boughton continued his winning ways picking another checkered flag. Mini Stocks were up next and heat wins went to Eric Van Wyngaarden and Rob Hoskins. Thunder Car heat wins went to Dennis Cybalski and Brad Collison. Late Model heat wins went to Shane Gowan and Paul Howse. Intermission saw the #67 two seater Late Model driven by Gord Bennett take a few lucky ticket holders out for a few laps around Flamboro Speedway. Young or old, everyone exits the car smiling from ear to ear, a great experience you don’t want to miss!! Visit http://www.fullthrottlemarketing.ca for more information!!

Feature racing got underway shortly after 8pm with Pro Stocks up first. As in the heat race, it was a battle once again between Davy Boughton and Peter Becker but unlike the heat race Becker held off Boughton to pick up his first feature win of the year ending Boughton’s consecutive feature win string at three. Twenty Four Mini Stocks took the green flag for their feature race. Rob Hoskins held off Eric Van Wyngaarden as well as Dave Bailey, Billy Schwartzenberg and Matt Dean for his fourth feature victory of 2012. Dennis Cybalski battled with Mark Burbridge and Brad Collison and took the Thunder Car feature. All three cars were under intense scrutiny in the tech garage well after the race so the result was still unofficial. The final race of the night saw Paul Howse hold off a hard charging Brad Corcoran for his second win of the night.

That brought an end to another spectacular night of racing.  Make sure you join us next Saturday night for the Northern Border Challenge, a 35 lap invitational for F4 Modifieds of USA and Canada plus Late Models, Thunder Cars and Mini Stocks.

Open Wheel Extravaganza Invades Flamboro Speedway

By Randy Spencer for OntarioOval.com – Flamboro Speedway switched it up Saturday night as the Grisdale Late Models and the Ponderosa Nature Resort Mini Stocks had the night off. It was the second Open Wheel Extravaganza of the year featuring the Lucas Oil Can-AM TQ Midgets, the Lucas Oil Canadian Vintage Modifieds, F4 Modifieds, Hurricane Midgets and are joined by the Ray’s Auto Center & Towing Thunder Cars.

The Hurricane Midgets have been growing by leaps and bounds lately and they had 27 cars on hand. A couple had problems in practice but still had 24 make the show. Brian Woodland and Amanda McCall won the heats. The F4 Modifieds heat was one by Rob Divenanzo. Rob normally races the #14 TQ Midget and looked good in his first race in the F4. Ray’s Auto Center & Towing Thunder Cars heat winners were Rob Istead and Gary Slama. The Lucas Oil Can-AM TQ Midgets heat wins went to Rob Neely and current points leader Darren McLennan. Lucas Oil Canadian Vintage Modifieds heat winners were Jason Keen and John Karley. Two consis or B features were required. Connor Carrothers took the Hurricane Midget race while Greg Smulders picked up the checkers in the Can AM Midget B main.

Intermission saw the #67 two seater Late Model driven by Gord Bennett take a few lucky ticket holders out for a few laps around Flamboro Speedway. Young or old, everyone exits the car smiling from ear to ear, a great experience you don’t want to miss!! Visit http://www.fullthrottlemarketing.ca for more information!!

Feature racing got under way with the Hurricane Midgets starting 24 cars for the first annual Jack Swanston memorial. Jack, a pioneer of Hurricane Midget racing passed away last July. Former racer and club president, a nice to tribute to a great supporter of the club. Rob McCall led the first three laps but was overtaken on lap four by Brian Woodland. Amanda McCall ran away with it and picked up the feature victory. In the F4 Modified feature Shannon Morris led the first three laps but Rob Divenanzo got by in the 36 rocket. John Verney and Divenanzo swapped the lead back and forth for several laps but Divenanzo led the last 5 laps and picked up the feature win for a perfect night in the F4. A couple cautions early in the Can AM Midget feature gave way to some clean fast racing with some great battles  up front with James Gray holding off Mack Deman and Rob Neely. Ray’s Auto Center & Towing Thunder Cars ran their usual exciting feature with Shawn Chenoweth picking up the checkered flag. The Burbridge brothers didn’t have a good night, Mark had engine problems in practice and didn’t make the races and Rick got mixed up with the a car on the back stretch in the feature and his night ended with quite a bit of damage up against the wall. The final race of the night was for the Lucas Oil Canadian Vintage Modifieds with Corey Jones picking up the checkered flag.

Shaw Wins Round Two Of Grisdale Triple Crown At Flamboro

By Randy Spencer for OntarioOval.com – Round 2 of the Tenth anniversary Grisdale Triple Crown tournament for Late Models was the main event for another hot and steamy night of racing action at Flamboro Speedway.

Round one winner was raring and ready to go along with 18 other Late Models. But for Howse however his night got off to a bad start with several mishaps and his night wouldn’t end as good as he wanted. Qualifying for the 75 lap feature got underway shortly after 6:30 with Jeff Ruddy and Bill Lassaline on the pole for the first of four heats. On lap three, Howse’s troubles began. A car got sideways and as Paul stopped right short of hitting the car, the #75 car of T.J. Marshall couldn’t stop in time and lifted the rear of the #8 car of Howse car resulting in the rear end shifting in the car causing handling issues. On the re-start rookie Dale Shaw battled with the veteran David Elliott with Shaw holding off Elliott for the checkered flag. In the second heat, Jeff Stewart and Scott Lyons battled hard for ten laps. Stewart, made Lyons aware he was on his back door with several taps but the veteran Lyons who returned this year after a few years in retirement held off Stewart for the win.

The Ontario Pro Challenge series were in town for their second visit of the season. Dennis Thomson came in atop the points ladder and along with Tim Norris, the two have “owned” Flamboro over the past couple of seasons. In heat number one, Tim Shanahan got out to an early lead but Dale Wilson got by on the back stretch on lap three and led the rest of the way for the win. In heat two, Mike Taylor led lap one but couldn’t hold off the hard charging Tim Norris and then went on to win by almost a straightaway. Thunder Car qualifying was up next and it was back to business after some hard feelings in the Thunder car pits from last week. Scott Laporte started up front and led the first five laps but #2 Rick Burbridge, who has been on fire of late, proved too much and picked up another checkered flag. In heat number two, Gary Slama started pole and led all ten laps for the win. In  Mini Stock qualifying, Courntey Scott started along side Dave Goodacre and dominated picking up her first heat win. In heat two, the Rabbit Rob Hoskins had some mechanical issues and was unable to make the start. Mike Holmes lead all the way for the win and Spira teammates Samantha Shaw and points leader Billy Schwartzenburg battled for second and third for the entire race.

In round two of Late Model qualifying, Dale Shaw and David Elliott continued their battle from race one and this time the veteran wasn’t letting the rookie off so easy. The two had a great clean battle all race and this time Elliott came out on top. In the final Late Model qualifier, Jamie Cox, who races normally at Delaware Speedway led the first four laps but Steve Laking got by on lap five and picked up the victory. After a brief intermission, the cars line up on the front straight for introductions.

The green flag dropped and the race would turn into a marathon. Troubles started early with a caution on lap one, Jamie Cox spun and sustained some damaged and left and was unable to return. As they say in racing, cautions breed cautions and that was definitely the case in this race. After a false start the green flew once again only to see Paul Howse’s woes continue as he spun in turn two bringing out another yellow. Howse returned and a few laps later he got mixed up with the 9 of Jeff Ruddy. Ruddy climbed the wall and it brought out another caution for debris. Lap 23 Howse got into the wall and was taken off on the hook but was able to make it back on. David Elliott cut a tire on lap 32 and quick work in his pits got him back on to continue his night. A few laps later once again trouble for Howse as he got mixed up with Scott Lyons. Both cars made their way to the pits with Howse once again made it back out to continue thanks to the speedy work of his crew. Lyons would return  for a short stint before wrecking and ending his night. On lap 46 the red flag came out as leader Brad Corcoran’s engine let go coming down the front stretch. Unfortunately the second place car of Steve Laking got into the liquid and made hard contact with the turn 1-2 wall. Both cars were finished for the evening but the drivers were ok. Cautions on laps 49 and 51 took a couple more cars out of the action. Jason Shaw made his way to the front and had a good clean battle with great racing by Didero, Elliott, Gowan and Boeschler. The King of Speed, Jason Shaw was determined to make better on his round one showing and built a healthy lead and came home for the checkered flag. Good thing as the race approached the two hour mark, Shaw had to be pushed off from victory lane…out of gas.

In other feature action, Courtney Scott fresh off her heat win was on the pole for the Mini Stock feature. Billy Schwartzenburg continued his strong season and he had a great battle with Eric Van Wyngaarden as the two broke away from the rest of the pack. They entered lapped traffic and started to separate themselves from the rest of the pack led by Dave Bailey. The lapped traffic proved to be a problem for Van Wyngaarden as he got mixed up on the final lap with a car and ended up in the turn three wall. Schwartzenburg came across for the win as the race ended under caution/checkers. In Thunder Car feature racing, The brothers Burbridge were looking to continue their dominance but the streak would come to an end. Scott Laporte led lap one but the #4 of Rob Istead got by him on lap two. He led until lap five when Gary Slama got by. Kevin Gallant rebounded from a broken axle in practice to pick up his first feature win of 2012. The final race of the night was the 30 lap feature for the Ontario Pro Challenge. Josh Nicholson led for the first few laps but Tim Norris wasn’t going to be outdone and he took over the lead and didn’t look back and led the rest of the way for the victory.

That brought an end to another spectacular night of racing.  Make sure you join us next Saturday night for OPEN WHEEL EXTRAVAGANZA featuring the Lucas Oil Can-AM TQ Midgets, the Lucas Oil Canadian Vintage Modifieds, F4 Modifieds, Hurricane Midgets and are joined by the Ray’s Auto Center & Towing Thunder Cars.

NOTES: A nice crowd was on hand for the race. Hot and humid temperatures and the small risk of thunderstorms didn’t keep the crowd away. An early morning downpour and thunderstorm played havoc causing some issues but nothing that couldn’t be solved. Race Time Radio was on hand to broadcast the 75 lapper on SiriusXM Channel 157 Sports Express and RTR. Joe, Sue and Joe Jr. along with Gerry Paxton did a great job as always. Just a correction form last week, the #9 of Jeff Ruddy is from Caledonia Ontario and was racing at Lancaster Speedway, not a resident of Lancaster as I previously had thought. A great show of sportsmanship as the Ray’s Towing guys including Nick Troback, Scott & Dave Laporte, Dennis Cybalski got to work immediately after Kevin Gallant broke an axle in practice and along with Gallant and his crew and others changed it, got him back out for the heat where he finished second and the feature which he won. Now that’s team work and great sportsmanship! Brandon McFerran debuted a new mini stock tonight. Looked good and running faster than the old car, look out for Brandon! Kudos to Tara Howse and all those who contributed to celebrating the birthday of long time track employee, gas man Arnold Fowler. He was introduced to the crowd on his 70th birthday and cake later in the pits. A great man, Happy Birthday Arnold!! A great looking addition to the infield as a new Victory Lane sign has been erected on the light tower opposite the starter’s stand and the feature winners had photos taken next to it. Good job by the Casales’ and Harlyn Fabricating among others. Looks awesome!

Corcoran, Burbridge, Hoskins & Verney Win At Flamboro

By Randy Spencer for OntarioOval.com – Things are really starting to heat up at Flamboro Speedway and with the hot weather comes great racing and plenty of hot action, on and off the track.

Racing got underway shortly after 6:30 pm with a regular racing program. The Ponderosa Nature Resort Mini Stocks were up first and the #44 Spira car of Scott Simmons took the first heat victory followed closely by Courtney Scott who had a very strong run. Heat two victory went to Rob Hoskins . In the Ray’s Auto Center & Towing Thunder Cars Dave Silverthorn continued his winning ways in recent heat races with another convincing victory in the first hear. Dennis Cybalski made it close however battling right up until the checkered flag flew. Lots of banging and bumping in this one and the 55 of Chris Howse and 89 Bill Watson were beating on one another and the end result was Howse in the turn three wall and being taken off on the hook. He would return for the feature. The second heat had Kevin Albers and Brad Collison on the pole and Albers managed to lead lap one but Collison had a strong run and got by on lap two and led the rest of the way.

Shane Gowan led the Grisdale Late Models onto the track for the first of two qualifying heats. Gowan looked good early leading the first six laps but Brennan Didero got by in turns three and four to take the lead and this one finished under caution as a last lap spin by Brent Wheller brought out the checkers. Heat two saw a great battle for the top three positions as Steve Laking, Jason Shaw and Jeff Stewart battled clean for ten laps with Laking leading all ten laps for the win. The F4 Modifieds had fourteen cars on hand so two heats were required. Dan Nanticoke led early but Dave Hodgkinson got by on lap six and held off the pack for the victory. Cliff Hodgkinson led all ten laps for the win in heat number two.

Courtney Scott led 19 cars onto the track for the 25 lap Mini Stock feature. Scott Simmons led the first three laps but the Rabbit Rob Hoskins got by and led the rest of the way for another feature victory. Hoskins told announcer Gerry Paxton on track after the race, “That was the hardest race ever. The car kept jumping out of gear.” That with the heat and banging and bumping made it a heated battle. Dave Silverthorn and Bobby Mercer were out front for the Thunder Car feature. This one would prove to be a great race with a similar result but some hard feelings after all was said and done. Dave Silverthorn got out to an early lead but the #2 of Rick Burbridge was too much for Silverthorn and he caught him and past the #9 and started to build up a good lead. A caution on lap 20 made it interesting and for a few laps, it was close but Burbridge pulled away for yet another feature victory. Brad Corcoran and Paul Howse waged a great battle in the 30 lap Late Model feature with Corcoran coming out on top. John Verney made his return worth the wait as he held off the field in the F4 feature picking up the checkered flag to close out another hot and heated night of racing. Fans were treated to a great fireworks display after the races.

NOTES: Courtney Scott had a great run in her heat race and was very happy with her second place finish, great job Courtney! Lisa DeLeeuw was out last night. She has been racing at Sunset this year but had a night off so gave Flamboro a shot. Dave Bailey was a little beaten up and sore after flipping his Thunder Stock last night at Ohsweken. Talking to Dave he told me of his wild ride in the feature. A car cut down on him and he had no place to go sending the car into another the wall and eventually flipping over and destroying the car in the process. This isn’t the first time this has happened at Ohsweken. Last year he met the same fate but mentioned the last time that happened he went out and won the Mini Stock feature at Flamboro the next night. Well he was close finishing third tonight.

In Thunder Car action, Dave Silverthorn and Rick Burbridge continued their winning ways. Burbridge won his third feature and seventh for the brother duo. They were featured this week in an exclusive feature on Ontario Oval and graced the cover of the Flamboro Speedway Race Night Review program. Steve Cashmore was out tonight, nice to see him back and Rodney Rutherford who races on the dirt at Ohsweken and was racing a Pure Stock at Flamboro had a Thunder Car out tonight. Chris Van Dussen also made a return after missing the past few weeks as did Bill Pearsall and Derek Jackson. Lots of heated emotions in the Thunder Car pits as well as on the track. Won’t get into it on here but will be interesting to see who shows up next week and who doesn’t.

In Late Model action, good to see Kenny Forth back out for the first time this year. He will apparently be out for the Grisdale race next week and was getting the feel for the track. Calvin Warren was out for the first time as well getting a feel for the track. Another car visiting and from what I hear will race weekly was the #9 of Jeff Ruddy from Lancaster, N.Y. That’s a long haul every week and he was a DNF in the feature as he made some contact with the wall and another car. Shane Gowan was out and the big news this week is NASCAR star Kenny Wallace will be driving the #39 Lucas Oil machine in the 100 lap Gold Rush race her on August 20th.

Nice to see 14 cars out this week in the F4 division. The group has had some great races this year and is still growing. Saturday July 28th is the Northern Border Challenge, a 35 lap invitational for F4 Modifieds of USA and Canada. That should be interesting. Some of our guys and gals have been racing down in the North eastern United States so can’t wait to see some of the cars they bring back this way. Dave Asbury Jr. who’s dad raced here years ago made his first start in an F4 modified and looked good. And finally a great big thanks to the Casale’s as well as Mike Schmidt of London Recreational for that great fireworks display (the one in the sky) after the races last night. That was a great show and many fans stayed behind to watch and it received lots of applause and everyone seemed to really enjoy the show.

Make sure you make plans to attend the second installment of the 10th Anniversary GRISDALE TRIPLE CROWN Tournament presented by Grisdale Racing Products this Saturday. 75 lap invitational event for Late Models (rain date next day, afternoon, Sunday July 8th) plus Thunder Cars, Mini Stocks and the Ontario Pro Challenge make a return visit. Pit Gates Open at 3pm, Grandstand Opens at 5pm, Qualifying gets underway at 6pm with Main Events starting at 8:00pm. And in two weeks time it’s OPEN WHEEL EXTRAVAGANZA featuring the Lucas Oil Can-AM TQ Midgets, the Lucas Oil Canadian Vintage Modifieds, F4 Modifieds, Hurricane Midgets and are joined by the Ray’s Auto Center & Towing Thunder Cars. Pit Gates Open at 4pm, the Grandstand Opens at 5pm, Qualifying starts at 6:30pm with Main Events scheduled for 8:00pm.
