JOB, MCPHERSON, CASTELEIN, AND HILS TAKE WINS ON CAIRN CROFT NIGHT AT OHSWEKEN

by Tommy Goudge (July 18, 2008) – Kevin Job has been in the hunt for feature wins all season at Ohsweken Speedway and finally broke through on Friday night during Southern Ontario Sprints tour action with his first feature win ever at the Speedway. In the ESSO Thunder Stocks, ESSO Mini-Stocks, and Friday Night Fun Stocks, point leaders Cody McPherson, Abel Castelein, and Lee Hils all extended their leads with feature wins in their respective divisions.

Ryan Hunsinger and Derek Jonathon led the field to the green flag to start the Southern Ontario Sprints feature, with Hunsinger getting the early lead, but 4th starter Keith Dempster immediately glued himself to the rear nerf bar of Hunsinger’s #77x. Rookie Kris Root found the going rough in turn 1 as the #69r bicycled and then made contact with another car, breaking the front end on Root’s car and bringing out a caution. At the same time, a fine run for Dick Mahoney ended in a plume of smoke as the #79’s oil filter was dislodged. Teammates Hunsinger and Dempster opened a gap on the field on the restart and quickly approached lapped traffic, which proved to be the undoing of Hunsinger, who spun out of the lead in the 4th turn while attempting to put a lap on Mike Ferrell’s #15. Meanwhile, the front wing on the Dempster machine had collapsed for a second week in a row, and on the restart 10th starter Kevin Job had moved in behind the #5 machine of Dempster, with Adam West up to 3rd and Rob Pietz in 4th. Incredibly, Job’s front wing also collapsed, but the 2 front running cars still ran at a very fast pace, while Hunsinger quickly charged through the field after restarting at the tail. 

Adam West’s fine run came to an end when his engine quit on the backstretch, bringing out a caution flag and sending the #30 to the pit area. Job was able to get by Dempster shortly after the green flag came back out, taking a lead he would not relinquish. The race was halted one more time when Jim Porter got sideways coming out of the 4th corner, causing Joel Lehman to spin and then roll over. Lehman climbed from his machine uninjured, but the #4z suffered extensive wing and front end damage. The race went back green for a dash to the finish, but Job was not to be denied victory on this night. Just a lap short of the finish, Ryan Hunsinger pulled off the track with apparent mechanical issues, while Kyle Patrick spun out of the 4th position in corner 3 on the final lap. Job crossed under the checkered flag first followed by Dempster, Warren Mahoney, Pietz, and Glenn Styres, who twice charged through the field after starting 17th, making his way into the top 10, then catching a bump in turn 1, falling back, and charging back up through the pack again. Craig Downie, Keith Dempster, Ryan Hunsinger, and Dick Mahoney won the heat races. 28 cars attended the event. The B-Main was cancelled after 4 cars scratched after the heats.

A very large field of 25 ESSO Thunder Stocks filled the pits, as some newcomers from Merrittville and Humberstone signed in to get some laps at Ohsweken in preparation for competing as the support division for the World of Outlaws Sprint Car event on Tuesday night. Kyle Magrin and Mike Thorne were on the front row for the start of the feature, but Magrin’s car began smoking as soon as the green flag came out, and Magrin took the #24k pitside shortly thereafter. Meanwhile, Glen Leinen had taken command up front, but it only took point leader Cody McPherson 3 laps to make his way from the outside of row 5 into the top 3. McPherson quickly moved in on Leinen and the two raced side by side for a lap before McPherson was able to use his patented move in the middle groove of corner 2 to get by the Leinen machine and set sail out front. Behind McPherson, the action was fast and furious as Mike Ward, Billy Bleich, and Jeremy Bean moved to the front from their starting positions outside the top 10. Mike Ward, making his 2nd start of the year at Ohsweken, was able to clear the rest of the pack in the late going and eat slightly into McPherson’s lead, but ran out of time before the checkered flag fell. Following McPherson and Ward across the line were Ryan Dinning, Leinen, and Bleich. 3 hotly contested heat races entertained the crowd early in the night, with victories going to Brad Bacher, Michelle Johnson, and Glen Leinen. Making their first Thunder Stock starts of the season at Ohsweken were Bleich, Michael Bosse, Amanda Stoner, Mini-Stock regular Mark Thorne, and Mark Czuba who previously raced in Fun Stock action this season.

After a tough event that damaged a few cars last Friday, the ESSO Mini-Stocks returned with a solid field of 17 this week. Rick Emberson’s purple #86 was damaged in a rollover last week and won’t be back for awhile, but Rick returned this week with the Miller Racing #79 as the Paris driver was still 2nd in points, despite not finishing last week. Kelly Hallett and Mark Thorne were at the front of the field for the start of the feature, with Hallett getting the advantage, but defending track champ and current points leader Abel Castelein was quickly making tracks through the field and started to reel in Hallett’s #88. Castelein was able to get by Hallett in turns 1 and 2 and set sail out front, but Steve Hess was having a great run and followed Castelein to the front, however the gap was too wide for Hess to catch up before the end of the race. Castelein’s win was his 3rd of the season, and 2nd in a row. Hess settled for 2nd, followed by Hallett, but the #88 did not pass post-race tech inspection, moving Kevin Hilborn to 3rd, followed by Mark Thorne who bounced back with a strong run after a rare DNF last week, and Mitchell Brown rounding out the top 5. Heat race wins went to Thorne and Chase Hess.

In Friday Night Fun Stock action, another competitive field showed up to do battle on the infield oval. Lee Hils started at the front and led much of the event, but Karl Sault was right on his rear bumper for the first half. A caution slowed the field briefly, and on the restart Hils was able to into a rythm and open up his lead over Sault to take the victory, his 4th of the season.

STILL “LIVIN’ THE DREAM”; HUNSINGER WINS MID-SEASON CHAMPIONSHIP AT OHSWEKEN

by Tommy Goudge (July 11, 2008) – Ohsweken, Ontario: A wild night at Ohsweken Speedway was capped off with an exciting finish in the CORR/PAK Merchandising Sprint Car division feature event when Ryan Hunsinger passed teammate Keith Dempster on the last lap to take home his 2nd feature win of the season. A special Mid-Season Championship edition of Friday Night Thunder was presented by Wiseco Pistons this week, and it was a night of repeats as Terry Osmond (Thunder Stocks), Abel Castelein (Mini-Stocks), and Karl Sault (Fun Stocks) all took home their 2nd feature wins of the season as well.

Mikey Kruchka and John Riegling paced the field to the green glag to start the CORR/PAK Merchandising A-Feature, with the two front-row starters dicing for position in the early going. Unfortunately for Kruchka, the front wing on his #01 came loose after just a handful of laps, changing the handling characteristics and taking Mikey out of contention for the lead. Riegling then began fighting off the advances of Keith Dempster, while many competitors – including Ryan Hunsinger – dealt with a tricky section in turn 1 while trying to keep the leaders in sight. Heavy lapped traffic became a factor during the second half of the event, and the top 5 competitors sliced their way through the traffic while racing very hard for position at the same time. Dave Dykstra saw a strong run in the top 5 come to an end as the engine in his #5d expired just a few laps short of the finish. During the ensuing caution period, John Riegling came to a stop on the backstretch with a fuel issue, leaving Dempster, Hunsinger, and Kevin Job to decide the outcome of the feature event. When the green flag came back out for a dash to the finish, teammates Dempster and Hunsinger raced wheel to wheel with precision, while Job was right behind them, waiting for his chance to pounce. Dempster slipped slightly in turn 2 on the last lap, allowing Hunsinger to seize the moment and get by for the 2nd victory of his rookie season. Dempster settled for 2nd followed by Job, Kyle Patrick, and 17th place starter Brad Malloy, who charged all the way to 5th at the end of the event. Despite the lack of downforce caused by the loss of his front wing, Kruchka held on for a fine 6th place finish, the best result of his sprint car career to date. Glenn Styres, Job, and Dempster took heat race victories.

The ESSO Thunder Stock division feature event began with a moment of silence and a “missing man” formation pace lap to honour David Sault, father of Fun Stock driver Karl Sault, who passed away earlier this week. Kyle Magrin and Mike Thorne then led the field to the green flag to start the event, lengthened from 15 laps to 20 laps for mid-season championship night. Magrin took the early lead, but mechanical issues again plagued Magrin’s #24k, forcing him pitside early on in the race. Meanwhile, points leader Cody McPherson had charged through the field and took the lead before the halfway mark, but a flat left front tire took McPherson’s #777 out of the event, and left a large group to contend for the victory. 2 and sometimes 3 wide racing took centre stage as the laps wound down, and it was Bernard Niegberg who emerged from the pack with the lead. Nieberg crossed the stripe 1st, but a technical infraction found after the event left Terry Osmond with the victory, followed by 16th place starter Jeremy Bean, Brian Pescetti, Rob Disher, and Lee Winger rounding out the top 5. Heat race wins went to Magrin and Thorne.

A wild and unpredictable ESSO Mini-Stock race ended with a familiar face gracing victory lane as defending track champion and current points leader Abel Castelein brought his #28 across the stripe first. Rick Robinson and Mark Thorne were on the front row to start the special 20 lap feature event, with Robinson taking the lead, but Castelein had started right behind Robinson’s #05 on the inside of the 2nd row and quickly began to make his presence felt. After some close door-to-door action, Robinson suffered a flat tire and was forced to pull into the pits, taking him out of contention. Castelein had built a substantial lead, but a red flag for a spectacular roll over by Rick Emberson after contact with Mike Peterson on the front stretch with less than 5 laps to go bunched the field, putting Mitchell Brown right on Castelein’s bumper. Emberson was shaken up, but emerged from his badly damaged #86 without injury. A second caution period slowed the action again as A.J. Castelein and Mike Evers got together on the front stretch, collecting newcomer Rick Haimerl in the aftermath. A.J.’s car sustained contact to the driver’s side door in the incident, and he was transported to the hospital for precautionary reasons after experiencing pain in his left arm and neck. The race resumed with Brown right behind Abel Castelein, but the young driver couldn’t get by the champ, and Castelein took home his first feature win since opening night, with Brown settling for 2nd, followed by Steve Hess, Kevin Hilborn, and Brent Hill. Heat race victories went to Mark Thorne and Rick Robinson.

An entertaining feature on a racey track was the order of the night for the Fun Stocks division, as Karl Sault and newcomer Jesse McDonald fought back and forth for much of the event, but McDonald dropped out of contention after suffering a flat tire, leaving Sault to cruise to an emotional victory. Karl lost his father David earlier in the week, dedicated the win to him, and took an extra victory lap in his honour.

Vintage race cars also made a stop at Ohsweken on Friday night, with Lawry Siemens taking home the checkered flag in their feature event with his great-looking #6, after fighting off the challenges of Daryl Bray and Allan Harju.

Friday Night Thunder returns to Ohsweken next Friday, July 18 when the Best Western Cairn Croft Hotel presents the Southern Ontario Sprints tour along with ESSO Thunder Stocks, ESSO Mini-Stocks, and Friday Night Fun Stocks, plus autograph night!

HOWLAND TAKES $3,000 ASCS NORTHERN SUMMER NATIONALS VICTORY AT OHSWEKEN

by Tommy Goudge (July 5, 2008) – Bryan Howland was on a mission Saturday night at Ohsweken Speedway during Night #2 of the American Sprint Car Series Northern Summer Nationals, featuring the ASCS Sprints on Dirt series vs. the ASCS Patriot series. After starting 8th in the 30-lap feature event, the Auburn, NY native sliced his way to the front and drove around Darren Long into the lead on lap 14. From there, Howland put on a clinic in lapped traffic and dominated the 2nd half of the race, taking his first victory in almost 2 full years, along with the $3,000 cheque as the inaugural winner of the Northern Summer Nationals. Howland’s last victory also came at Ohsweken nearly two full years ago on July 14, 2006 in an ASCS Patriot event.

Brett Mann and Scott Kreutter paced the field to the greenflag to start the special 30 lap event, with Mann taking the early lead. Darren Long quickly moved up from his starting position outside row 3 and blasted around Mann to take over the number one spot on lap 3. All eyes were on Bryan Howland’s #51, however, as he was clearly on a mission to end his winless streak, and also redeem himself after missing the feature event on Friday night. On lap 14, Howland had worked his way to 2nd and was right behind Long as the 2 leaders entered turn 1 in lapped traffic. Long slid high in turns 1 and 2, allowing Howland to drive by on the low side. Long stayed behind Howland briefly, but Howland worked lapped traffic to perfection and began opening a gap. The race was red flagged on the 22nd lap as Ryan Grubaugh flipped very hard on the frontstretch. Grubaugh hadstarted 10th and was fighting for the top 5 at the time of the incident. Ryan was able to walk away from the crash, but his #00 suffered frame damage. 

When the race was restarted, Long was in 2nd behind Howland, but could barely see the leader as Howland had managed to put 7 lapped machines between the two front runners. Long worked picked his way through the traffic during the last 8 laps, and while a caution for a spin by Brad Malloy gave Long one last chance, he was not able to do anything with Howland, who cruised home to victory. Long settled for 2nd followed by Kreutter, night #1 feature winner Dustin Daggett, and regular Ohsweken Corr/Pak Merchandising Sprint Car division competitor Kevin Job, who came home 5th after starting 15th. Mann, Bubba Broderick, Howland, and Long took heat race victories on the very fast Ohsweken surface. Chris Muhlheisen and Glenn Styres won the twin B-Mains, while Howland won the 4 Laps of Fame Dash. Daggett won the Dash for Cash run for the drivers who locked themselves into Saturday night’s feature with top-4 finishes the night before. 

Misfortune struck several sprint car competitors on Saturday night, as Ryan Hunsinger and Rob Pietz suffered engine problems, while Fred Cade flipped hard in turn 4 in his heat race after contact with the left rear of Blake Breen. Hunsinger, Pietz, and Cade are all currently in the top 6 in Ohsweken Corr/Pak Merchandising sprint car division points, and will have work to do to get ready for next Friday’s Mid-Season Championship night at the Speedway. Bobby Breen was also involved in a hard crash on Saturday night, as he appeared to suffer a mechanical failure in the Dash for Cash and hit the wall in turn 2 very hard. Fortunately all drivers involved in crashes emerged from their cars unscathed, despite the heavy contact.

The Friday Night Fun Stocks division also raced on Saturday night in a special $250-to-win event, and at the end of 25 hard fought laps, newcomer Trevor Deboer came home with the victory, and a beautiful trophy as well. Lee Hils chased Deboer home, followed by Mark Czuba, Karl Sault, and Chris Hils. Rodney Rutherford also made his first ever Fun Stock start on Saturday night, bringing the total to 18 different drivers who have competed in the new division already this season.

Human-powered racing also took to the track on Saturday night, as Box Car Races for kids age 6-12 took centre stage during intermission. Many great-looking Box Cars were seen, including a creative one-of-a-kind bright pink design, and replicas of the sprint cars of Glenn Styres, Ryan Hunsinger, and World of Outlaws driver Donny Schatz, as well as Thunder Stock replicas of Chris Dickie and Kyle Magrin, and another of the Chase Hess Mini-Stock. Congratulations to all the kids and their “pit crew” friends and family who worked hard on their Box Car Racers in preparation for Saturday night.

Friday Night Thunder returns to Ohsweken next Friday, July 11 when Wiseco Pistons presents Mid-Season Championship night at the Speedway featuring the Corr/Pak Merchandising Sprint Cars, ESSO Thunder Stocks, and Friday Night Fun Stocks, plus Vintage Cars. Evers Financial Group Inc will sponsor the ESSO Mini-Stock mid-season main event, and all of the divisions will be racing in lengthened features and competing for extra prize money this week. Friday Night Thunder at Ohsweken Speedway offers affordable family entertainment just a short drive away from most mid-western Ontario locations.

Daggett Blisters 45 Car Field For Summer Nationals Prelim Victory

by Tommy Goudge (July 4, 2008) – The largest sprint car field of the 2008 Ohsweken Speedway season turned out for a historic night as the inaugural ASCS Northern Summer Nationals event took centre stage during Round 8 of Friday Night Thunder. When the dust settled, Dustin Daggett had bested 44 other sprint car drivers and found his way back to Ohsweken’s victory lane for a 5th time. Ohsweken’s regular Friday Night Thunder classes also participated in the evening’s festivities, with Cody McPherson picking up his 5th ESSO Thunder Stock feature of the season, while Brent Hill garnered feature win honours for a 2nd time this season in the ESSO Mini-Stocks, and Lee Hils won his 3rd Friday Night Fun Stock feature.

Fred Cade and Gary Fast paced the field to green to start the 25 lap ASCS Northern Summer Nationals preliminary feature, with Fast taking the early lead. With 4 laps in the books, Cade powered by Fast into the lead in turns 3 and 4 and began to put some distance between himself and the rest of the field. Lapped traffic quickly became a factor in the event, and it proved to be the undoing of Cade as he spun in turn 3 after slight contact with a lapped machine during the 8th lap. 2nd place running Fast and 3rd place running Blake Breen were collected in the aftermath, relegating all 3 to the back of the pack for the restart, and handing the lead to 4-time Ohsweken feature winner Dustin Daggett. 1 lap later, Ohio invader Darren Long suffered a steering problem, which resulted in a pileup in turn 3. With cleanup finished, the race went back green again, and stayed that way to the end, as Daggett worked through heavy lapped traffic at top speed, and cruised home to victory. Mike Stelter came home with a strong 2nd place finish, while young Scott Kruetter took 3rd, followed by Bobby Breen all the way up from 20th on the grid, and Ryan Grubaugh – who started 18th – rounding out the top 5. Daggett, Stelter, Kruetter, and Breen locked themselves into Saturday night’s feature by virtue of their top 4 finish in Friday’s feature. Heat race victories went to Cade, Stelter, Daggett, Ryan Hunsinger, and Kyle Patrick, while Keith Dempster won the dash, and Kevin Job and Bobby Breen won the 2 B-Mains.

In ESSO Thunder Stock action, Cody McPherson extended his points lead by taking his 5th feature win of the season. The young St. Catharines driver guided his #777 through an early melee involving Vince Fargnoli, Terry Osmond, and Gord Bates, and drove into the lead from his 8th place starting spot before the race had reached the halfway point. Behind McPherson, a fierce battle was waged between Glenn Leinen and Brad Herron for 2nd place, with Leinen eventually prevailing. Herron settled for 3rd followed by Ryan Dinning, and Lee Winger driving Brad Bacher’s #3 machine this week. Despite losing a wheel in his heat race, last week’s feature winner Brian Pescetti was able to come home with an 8th place finish after starting 17th in the feature event. The hard charger of the night, however, was Jeremy Bean who was making his first visit to Ohsweken this season. Problems prevented the Bean #37 from finishing in heat race action, but when the checkered flag fell in the feature, Bean had advanced 10 positions from 16th on the grid to a 6th place finish. Heat race victories went to McPherson and Herron.

The ESSO Mini-Stocks division appeared to have another new winner this week, but the #05 car of Rick Robinson did not pass technical inspection after the race, handing the victory to Brent Hill for his 2nd feature win of the season. While Robinson held court out front, Hill held off a determined Mitchell Brown for much of the 15 lap distance in what turned out to be the race for the win, while points leader Abel Castelein and 3rd place points man Rick Emberson were never far behind. 14th place starter Mike Evers charged through the field to take home a 5th place finish, while Steve Hess started 19th and raced all the way to a 7th place finish. Heat race victories went to Robinson and Castelein.

The Friday Night Fun Stocks division saw its largest entry list ever this week as 10 drivers started the feature, scheduled for 25 laps. A wild race ensued when the green flag dropped, and when the dust had settled, Lee Hils was declared the winner. It was the 3rd feature win of the season for Hils, and his 2nd in a row. In another first for the division, ESSO Mini-Stock rookie competitor Wyatt Van Wart competed in both the Fun Stock and Mini-Stock division with the same car on Friday night.

Ohsweken Speedway gets back in action Saturday night, July 5 for Night #2 of the ASCS Northern Summer Nationals. $3,000 will go to the winner of the Summer Nationals A-Main on Saturday night – a prize for the 360 sprint cars at Ohsweken that is only topped by the $8,000 posted winner’s share of the Canadian Sprint Car Nationals purse coming up in September.
