NAIDA NAILS DOWN BIRTHDAY WIN AT OHSWEKEN

by Tommy Goudge (June 25, 2010) – Dain Naida made his second start of the season at Ohsweken Speedway count on Friday night, bringing home the Corr/Pak Merchandising Sprint Car feature win. Mike Thorne and Devin Habiuk got the wins in the “Twin 15” ESSO Thunder Stock features, Abel Castelein beat Kevin Hilborn to the finish line by inches in the ESSO Mini Stock feature, and Adam Reidel and Jeremy Hughes picked up Bomber feature wins.

CORR/PAK MERCHANDISING SPRINT CARS
An all-American front row consisting of Dain Naida and point’s leader Kyle Moffit took the green flag for the twenty lap Corr/Pak Merchandising Sprint Car feature. Naida got the lead and took off, intent on getting a feature win on his birthday, and making a week of hard work pay off. 

Mike Ling began a charge through the field from his seventeenth starting spot as soon as the green flag dropped. By lap seven, he was already in eleventh, and looking for more.

Up front, Naida continued to open his lead, while Keith Dempster and Kyle Moffit fought over the second spot, and positions were up for grabs throughout the top ten.

During the second half of the race, Moffit fell slowly through the field, eventually finishing eighth. Ling got around Moffit for the fifth spot on lap thirteen, and past Travis Cunningham for fourth during the next lap. Lap fifteen saw Dykstra passing Dempster for second, and two laps later Ling got around Dempster and into third.

Naida was on a rail and took the feature win by 3.2 seconds over Dykstra, Ling, Dempster, and Cunningham. Kevin Job, Tyler Rand, Moffit, Kyle Patrick, and Tom Huppunen rounded out the top ten. Heat races for the twenty-nine car field were claimed by Job, Dykstra, Moffit, and Cunningham, while Ling won the “B” Main.

ESSO THUNDER STOCKS
The annual Twin 15’s for the ESSO Thunder Stock division proved entertaining again on Friday night. The first feature found Mike Thorne and Shayne Pierce on the front row. The two young drivers went at it for the lead from the drop of the green flag, with Thorne eventually prevailing for the win, while Billy Bleich got around Pierce for second after starting eleventh. Pierce settled for third, followed by Jamie Cox and Devin Habiuk.

Feature number two found some of the fast cars starting in the middle of the pack, but it didn’t take long for the battle at the front to re-emerge between Pierce and Thorne, while Bleich, Cox, Habiuk, and others tried to get in on the action. Most of the top runners chose the bottom groove, while Thorne pounded the top side lap after lap, losing ground in turns one and two but making it up and more in turns three and four.

The white flag flew over Pierce and Thorne racing side by side for the lead, but they made contact going down the backstretch. Thorne hit the wall hard and came close to rolling over, while Pierce continued on to take the checkered flag at the front of the field, followed by Habiuk. Thorne emerged from his damaged machine uninjured. Speedway officials determined that Pierce was given the black flag for rough driving, meaning Habiuk went to Engine Pro Racing victory lane for the first time in his career.

Jamie Cox got the second spot, followed by Mike Dooley, Ryan Dinning, and Lee Winger. Heat races for the twenty-three car field went to Dave Bailey, Thorne, and Pierce.

ESSO MINI STOCKS
Abel Castelein and Rob Slater were on the front row for the fifteen lap ESSO Mini Stock feature, but the field had not made it out of turn two when Dave Goodacre and Jake Brown made slight contact. Brown spun to a stop facing the wrong way, and was collected by Mike Sarantakos, and Steve Hess. All three cars received heavy damage and were done for the night. Brown emerged gingerly from his #10 machine favouring his left leg and was checked over by the medical team.

After a complete restart, Castelein got the jump and began to open a big lead. Kevin Hilborn, Trevor Goulding, Craig Erskine, and Mike Taylor all made their way into the top five quickly from deeper in the pack. Castelein was still ahead by a substantial margin while a great battle ensued between the other top five cars.

As the race moved along, Hilborn and the rest of the competitors began to reel Castelein in. Just a few laps remained when Hilborn caught up and he went to work trying to get his first feature win of the year. Hilborn and Castelein raced side-by-side out of turn four coming to the checkered flag, with Castelein getting the win by a scant few inches. Hilborn settled for second, followed by Goulding, Erskine, and Taylor. Newcomer Jason Coutu had a great run up from sixteenth to finish sixth, while recent returnee Rick Emberson went from fifteenth to seventh.

Heat races for the twenty-two car field were claimed by Castelein, Mike Evers, and Dave Goodacre.

BOMBERS
Another large field of Bombers signed in for action on Friday night, and officials decided to split the field and run two features for the infield-oval division. The first twelve lap affair found Kyle Andress and Shawn Ireland on the front row, but Adam Reidel made his way to the front and got the feature win over point’s leader Karl Sault, followed by Ireland, Kacey Huffman, and Andress.

Jesse McDonald and Jeremy Hughes started the second feature on the front row, and Hughes jumped out to the lead and took off. Hughes held on for the win over a fast-closing Craig Dowd, while McDonald settled for third, followed by Lee Hils, and Troy Smith.

Heat races for the eighteen car field were claimed by Sault and Hughes.

FENWICK FLYER GOES BACK TO OHSWEKEN SPEEDWAY VICTORY LANE

by Tommy Goudge (June 18, 2010) – Tom Huppunen ended Kids Night at Ohsweken Speedway on a good note as he took the Corr/Pak Merchandising Sprint Car feature win on Friday. Shayne Pierce claimed the ESSO Thunder Stock honours, while Trevor Goulding went back to Engine Pro Racing Victory Lane for the ESSO Mini Stocks division, Karl Sault got the Bomber win, and Ron Clark took the victory in the SOLTRA Lawnmowers event.

CORR/PAK MERCHANDISING SPRINT CARS
Brothers occupied the front row of the twenty lap Sprint Car feature on Friday night, and Tom Huppunen outraced his brother Jim to turn one and took off in the opening laps. Behind them, Keith Dempster moved from tenth on the grid to fourth in the first lap. Dempster then moved to second on lap four and began to chase down Huppunen, who was contending with slower traffic. Lap seven found Dempster making a move for the lead and getting it from Huppunen, but it would be short-lived.

The caution flag flew on lap ten for Mikey Kruchka, who slowed in turn two. When the green came back out, Huppunen and Dempster went at it once again, and Huppunen took over the top spot again on lap eleven. The final nine laps were a matter of survival for Huppunen and others on the rougher than usual surface. Huppunen – defending champion of the Corr/Pak division – kept his car underneath him and came home with the feature win, followed by Dempster, Kyle Moffit, Kevin Job, and James Evans. Dave Dykstra originally finished fifth on the track, but failed to go to the scales after the feature and was disqualified.

Heat races for the twenty-five car field were claimed by Jim Huppunen, John Riegling, and Keith Dempster

ESSO THUNDER STOCKS
Front row starters Shayne Pierce and Mike Thorne battled for the lead in the early going before Pierce took command out front. Thorne faded slightly and eventually spun in turn two, taking away his chance at a top five finish.

Billy Bleich and Jamie Cox were next to challenge Pierce for the win, but Bleich lost a tire in the late going, and Cox ran out of time in his attempt to chase Pierce down. The win was the first of the season for Pierce, defending champion of the division.

Heat races for the nineteen cars in attendance went to Thorne and Pierce.

ESSO MINI STOCKS
Mike Taylor and Abel Castelein began the fifteen lap ESSO Mini Stock feature on the front row, but with just a lap in the books Castelein suffered two flat tires on the front of his car. This left Taylor out front on the restart, but Steve Hess, Trevor Goulding, Kevin Hilborn, and others had moved through the field to challenge for the lead.

Hess took over the lead and stayed in front of Goulding after a couple of restarts, but Goulding was not to be denied and snuck by for the win. Hess settled for second, followed by Hilborn, Taylor, and Craig Erskine.

Heat races for the twenty-five car field were claimed by Hess and Goulding.

BOMBERS
Dave Patton led much of the wild twenty lap Bomber feature, but a restart in the final four laps helped Karl Sault grab the top spot. Sault held on for the win, his third of the season. The driver from Dundas also increased his point lead as a result.

Heat races for the twenty-two car field went to Patton and Jeremy Hughes.

DYKSTRA DOES IT AGAIN AT OHSWEKEN; WINGER, ERSKINE, AND SAULT ALSO VICTORIOUS

by Tommy Goudge (June 11, 2010) – A wild night of racing at Ohsweken Speedway finished up with Dave Dykstra once again visiting victory lane on Friday. The win was Dykstra’s second out of three Corr/Pak Merchandising Sprint Car features held in 2010. Other winners on Trailers by Jim Bray night at the Speedway included Lee Winger in ESSO Thunder Stocks, Craig Erskine in ESSO Mini Stocks, Karl Sault in the Bomber division, Doug Fralick in Vintage Modifieds, Bill Harju in Vintage Sportsman, Kacey Huffman in Mini Van Figure 8, and Lee Hils in Mini Van Demo Derby.

CORR/PAK MERCHANDISING SPRINT CARS
Glenn Styres and Kyle Patrick started on the front row for the twenty lap Sprint Car feature. When the green flag dropped, Patrick jumped out to the lead and held it for the first six laps before Dave Dykstra caught up in traffic and made his move for the lead in turn two. Keith Dempster took over the runner-up spot from Patrick three laps later. Dempster was within sight of the leader at the halfway mark when the red flag came out for Mike Ling, who flipped and cleared the safety fence in turn one. Fortunately, Ling climbed uninjured from his mangled machine.

With the green flag back out, Dykstra drove away while the rest of the field jostled for position. Dykstra carved through traffic and claimed the victory, followed by Dempster, Mikey Kruchka, Styres, and Jared Zimbardi.

“The crew makes this happen,” said a modest Dykstra in victory lane, “I’m just the guy who holds the steering wheel.”

Heat races for the twenty-six car field were claimed by Glenn Styres, Tom Huppunen, and Keith Dempster, while Jason Martin claimed his first ever Sprint Car division checkered flag in the “B” Main.

ESSO THUNDER STOCKS
Kyle Magrin and Wyatt Van Wart started the Thunder Stock feature on the front row, but it didn’t take long for Lee Winger, Ryan Dinning, and Billy Bleich to march to the front. Ninth starting Winger looked to be a man on a mission after a flat tire took him out of contention for the feature win last week, and was into the lead by the time four laps were on the board. 

Lap five found Ed McNamara and Phil Nyssen facing the wrong way in turn four to bring out a caution, while Harry Crumb’s machine caught fire in turn two, bringing out a red flag. Speedway officials penalized Winger and Dinning on the red flag, as it was deemed they did not stop quickly enough. Both restarted from the rear of the field.

Green flag racing resumed with Billy Bleich out front, but Winger sliced his way quickly through the field and was back in contention in short order. The race came down to Bleich and Winger again, and this time it was Winger coming out on top. Bleich settled for second, followed by Jamie Cox, Jeremy Bean, and Dinning. Heat races for the twenty car field were claimed by Winger and Cox.

ESSO MINI STOCKS
Mike Taylor and Rob Slater began the fifteen lap Mini Stock feature at the front, but Mike Evers quickly took over in the lead. Trevor Goulding and Craig Erskine made their ways through the field to make it a three car battle for the lead with half the race in the books. Evers and Goulding bumped and banged for the lead while Erskine waited for his chance to pounce, which came just after halfway. 

Erskine got the lead and held on for the win while Goulding settled for second, followed by Kevin Hilborn, Evers, and Paul Goodale. Heat races for the twenty car field went to Goulding and Goodale.

BOMBERS
Jesse McDonald led much of the Bomber feature after starting on the pole, but suspension trouble took him out of contention. Karl Sault and Craig Dowd made their way from deep in the field to first and second and survived heavy traffic to remain in those spots until the end. McDonald held on for third, followed by John Cote and Dave Patton. Heat races for the twenty-one car field were claimed by Kyle Andress and McDonald.
