OHSWEKEN SPEEDWAY: TWO IN A ROW FOR COLLARD

by Tommy Goudge (August 26, 2011) – Jamie Collard followed up the biggest win of his Sprint Car career by winning again on Friday night at Ohsweken Speedway in the 20 lap Corr/Pak Merchandising Sprint Car feature. Paul Klager won the Mod-Lite Stars Championship Tour North event, Cory Turner was awarded the Lighthouse Tattoos Thunder Stock win, while Karl Sault won the HRW Automotive Mini Stock feature, and Rodney Rutherford got the Pierced Parts Bomber victory.

CORR/PAK MERCHANDISING SPRINT CARS
Jim Huppunen and Wayne Johnson started on the front row with Johnson getting the early lead, but a complete restart was needed after Dave Dykstra got upside down in turn three. Johnson took the lead when the race began again, but teammate Jamie Collard moved up from 6th on the grid and eventually got by for the win. Johnson settled for 2nd, followed by Keith Dempster, Travis Cunningham, and Mitch Brown. Points leader Jim Huppunen spun and restarted at the rear, eventually finishing 12th.

“I knew Wayne would be fast tonight,” Jamie said afterwards. “We talked setup and we shared what we had. We were a little different – he was setting up for the top, and I went for the bottom, and apparently it worked out. We’ve been working on setups big time, and trying shocks and trying different bars and everything. We finally figured it out. The car is unbelievably good. I just can’t thank the crew enough.”

Collard entered the night third in the standings, 64 points behind Jim Huppunen, and 43 points behind Kyle Patrick. His win coupled with 7th place for Patrick and 12th for Huppunen cut the gap nearly in half, and the championship is up for grabs with 2 races left in the title chase.

“We’re really going hard for the points championship,” Collard said. 
“(Huppunen’s) a long way out, but if we keep getting these (wins), it might help out. We’re hoping to be strong at the Canadian Sprint Car Nationals too, and bring home the victory for Canada.”

Heat races for the 23 car field went to Jamie Collard, Kyle Moffit, and Jim Huppunen.

MOD-LITE START CHAMPIONSHIP TOUR NORTH
Paul Klager and Derek Wagner started on the front row for the 4th visit of Mod-Lites to Ohsweken in 2011. Klager and Wagner traded spots throughout the race, with Josh Sliter also in the fray until his car went up in smoke. Tour points leader Shawn Sliter had mechanical problems in his heat race and started at the back of the feature field driving a borrowed car. He drove through the field to finish 3rd and take a big lead in the standings.

Klager brought out his older car which he’s won many times with at Ohsweken in the past, after racing a different one in earlier events this season.

“We dusted this thing off,” said Paul. “It’s been sitting in the back of my shop all year, and this is our own car, it’s the one I know well, and we got it back together for last Saturday, worked the bugs out of it, and here we are today.”

Heat races for the 18 car field went to Klager and Wagner. The Mod-Lite Stars will be back on September 17 to race during the Canadian Sprint Car Nationals.

LIGHTHOUSE TATTOOS THUNDER STOCKS
Phil Nyssen started 3rd and dominated the Thunder Stock feature, but his car failed the post-race technical inspection. Cory Turner was awarded the feature win as a result, a first for the rookie driver. Lee Winger, Larry Czinege, Jr., Mike Thorne, and Wyatt Van Wart rounded out the top 5.

Heat races for the 20 car field went to Phil Nyssen and Jim Lampman.

HRW AUTOMOTIVE MINI STOCKS
Karl Sault entered the evening tied for the Mini Stock points lead with Abel Castelein, but opened up a lead again by winning the non-stop feature. Castelein finished 13th after starting at the back of the 28 car field. Jake Brown, Jason Lungaro, Aaron Wiley, and Dale Cooke finished 2nd through 5th.

“We’ve been having trouble for the last couple of weeks,” said Karl afterwards. “Two weeks ago we had a fuel issue, and last week the axle broke. We got it all fixed and back together and here we are!”

Heat races were claimed by Sault, Brown, and Lungaro

PIERCED PARTS BOMBERS
Rodney Rutherford went back to the Engine Pro Racing Winner’s Circle on Friday in the Bomber event, while points leader Jesse McDonald had a flat tire and didn’t finish. Rutherford will be back in the lead as a result, after losing it last week. Dusty DeBoer, Brady Longboat, Kathi Dickie, and Jeremy May rounded out the top 5.

Heat races for the 17 car field went to Rutherford and Dickie.

COLLARD CASHES IN AT NORTHERN SUMMER NATIONALS AT OHSWEKEN SPEEDWAY

by Tommy Goudge (August 19, 2011) – Jamie Collard had a flair for the dramatic on Friday night at Ohsweken Speedway. The Burford, Ontario driver led only the last 2 laps of the Northern Summer Nationals series feature to visit the Engine Pro Racing Winner’s Circle for the first time. Jim Lampman triumphed in the Lighthouse Tattoos Thunder Stocks, Trevor Goulding claimed HRW Automotive Mini Stock honours, and Jesse McDonald got the Pierced Parts Bombers win.

NORTHERN SUMMER NATIONALS SPRINT CAR SERIES Steve Collins and Brad Knab were given front row starting spots in the “outlaw style” redraw, and Collins led the first 2 laps before 8th starter Kyle Moffit took over at the front. Dustin Daggett started 7th on the grid, but he was already in 2nd by lap 5 and began to chase Moffit down. Moffit went high in turn 1 on lap 9 and Daggett took advantage, but then caught a rut, got sideways, and collected Moffit. 
Kyle’s night was done, while Daggett restarted at the tail end of the field.

Travis Cunningham took over at the front, but his lead was short-lived as Bryan Howland got by on lap 10. Jamie Collard started 21st after qualifying from the B-Main, but he made his way to 10th by lap 11, and wasn’t done there. He was 5th by lap 15, and into 2nd chasing Howland down by lap 17. He tried going to the outside exiting turn 2, but couldn’t complete the pass. He fell back, but got another chance when a caution flag flew for Dain Naida on lap 22. Collard made the winning pass with 2 laps to go, and went on to claim the $2,000 prize.

“I’ve been waiting for this for a lot of years,” said Jamie. “I’ve been running here 7 or 8 years now, and never got a win. I was running that line in the B-Main and it seemed to be real fast. I was gaining a lot of spots, and I gained a lot of ground on Bryan. I was just waiting for the right time to get in beside him and show him I was there.”

Jamie thought his race was over when he got sideways in turn 4 with 5 laps left to run.

“I thought I cut another tire down. It started shaking real bad. I think the rim is full of mud or something. I was really worried I cut a tire like I did in the heat (race).”

Heat races for the 40 car field went to Steve Goldner, Dustin Daggett, Kyle Moffit, and Steve Collins, while Kyle Patrick won the B-Main, and Brett Mann won the Nathan Ackland State Farm Insurance “Top Gun” award for topping the heat race passing points list.

LIGHTHOUSE TATTOOS THUNDER STOCKS
Jim Lampman started 3rd in the Thunder Stock feature, but he quickly made his way to the front and led all the way in the non-stop affair. 
Cory Turner delivered another strong run, racing from 11th to 2nd, while points leader Mike Thorne drove from 16th to 3rd, and Lee Winger went from 12th to 4th. Mike Miller held on for a top 5 finish.

“It’s finally all coming together,” said Jim after the race. “There’s a lot of people who have watched us run back in the pack all year. Last Saturday night at Merrittville we pulled off a feature win with the old motor, and this one we just finished putting in at 4:00 this afternoon.”

Heat races for the 20 car field went to Lampman and Winger.

HRW AUTOMOTIVE MINI STOCKS
Trevor Goulding made a rare appearance at Ohsweken, and sliced through the field from 18th to claim the feature win. It was just his 3rd race of the season at Ohsweken after claiming the 2010 track championship. 
Chase Hess, Lee Hils, John Cote, and Abel Castelein rounded out the top 5. Castelein’s run helped him make a big gain in the points standings as both Karl Sault and Mike Evers had problems and did not finish. Jeremy Hughes also stood to make some gains in the championship chase, but dropped out of the top 5 with a flat tire late in the race.

“This car seems to love this track,” said Goulding from the Engine Pro Racing Winner’s Circle. “I don’t know why, but this car belongs here. 
Word came down that it was pretty rutty out here, and I was like ‘Cool, I like rutty tracks!’, so it was fun.”

Heat races for the 28 car field went to Chase Hess, Lee Hils, and Jeremy Hughes.

PIERCED PARTS BOMBERS
Jesse McDonald drove through the pack to get to the lead, then survived some accidental contact from Brady Longboat to hold on for his 4th feature win of the season. Rodney Rutherford settled for 2nd, followed by Longboat, Sarah Rutherford, and Dusty DeBoer.

“I was just steering and hoping it was going to stick,” said Jesse. “I was hoping nobody was going to get by me. It was a good race. The track’s a little rough, but it was fun.”

Heat races for the 15 car field went to Longboat and McDonald.

NEXT WEEK AT OHSWEKEN
“Kidsrace” presents the Mod-Lite Stars Champhionship Tour North racing for the Canadian National Autism Foundation next Friday, August 26. The Corr/Pak Merchandising Sprints, Lighthouse Tattoos Thunder Stocks, HRW Automotive Mini Stocks, and Pierced Parts Bombers are also part of round

MITCH BROWN NEWEST FACE IN OHSWEKEN WINNER’S CIRCLE

by Tommy Goudge (August 12, 2011) – Mitch Brown continued a season-long trend in the Corr/Pak Merchandising Sprint Car division at Ohsweken Speedway by visiting the Engine Pro Racing Winner’s Circle. Brown is the 10th different winner in 11 Corr/Pak races held this year, and the 3rd driver in the last 5 weeks to win his first career Sprint Car race.

Phil Nyssen continued his winning ways by topping the Lighthouse Tattoos Thunder Stocks, Jeremy Hughes got the HRW Automotive Mini Stocks win, Sarah Rutherford won her first ever Pierced Parts Bombers feature, Brian Page and Daryl Bray shared Vintage Car honours, and Wayne McCarten won the “Double Flagpole Race”.

A moment of silence was observed before the races for Debbie Hoddick and Earl Gaerte, two staunch racing supporters who passed away last week.

CORR/PAK MERCHANDISING SPRINT CARS
Two teenagers made up the front row for the Sprint Car feature, with Jesse Costa in the pole position, and Mitch Brown next to him. Costa led the first lap before the race was slowed for a Chris Durand spin in turn 3. Brown took over the lead when the green flag flew, but the race was stopped again when Jamie Turner got upside down in turn two. Turner climbed from his machine uninjured, but done for the night.

Brown continued to lead when the race was restarted, while Dave Dykstra made his way to 2nd with Kyle Moffit in tow. Jim Huppunen was working hard to make up ground after he blew an engine in his heat race and started last in the feature. Huppunen was the points leader entering the night, and switched cars to drive Wayne Ashton’s #3 in the feature. He was already in the top 10 by lap 6, and ended up 6th at the end.

The final yellow flag of the race fell on lap 13 when Keith Dempster slowed in turn 2. Dempster was able to restart, but Dykstra’s car was leaking fluid and he was forced to relinquish the 2nd spot during the caution period. Kyle Patrick got by Moffit when the green flag came back out, but couldn’t catch Brown who used the low side and cruised to the win 1.6 seconds ahead of Patrick.

“This thing was rails tonight,” said Brown after the race. “I couldn’t ask for much more. The top is so far around down in (turns) 1 and 2, and it kills your momentum, so I put a little asphalt experience in and drove it to the bottom.”

Mofitt settled for 3rd, followed by Chris Steele and Todd Hoddick. 
Huppunen minimized the damage to his points lead by finishing 6th, followed by Dain Naida, Jesse Costa with a career best finish, Jamie Collard, and Bob Reis who rounded out the top 10 in his first visit to Ohsweken.

Heat races for the 22 car field were claimed by Dave Dykstra, Chris Steele, and Dain Naida.

Conspicuous in his absence was speedway owner/promoter Glenn Styres, who was at the Black Rock Speedway competing in a Sprint Car race there along with Tony Stewart, who drove the Styres backup machine. Styres will be back next week, along with many of the drivers he raced against at Black Rock as the Northern Summer Nationals will take centre stage at Ohsweken Speedway and South Buxton Raceway.

LIGHTHOUSE TATTOOS THUNDER STOCKS
Kacey Huffman and Jim Lampman started the Thunder Stock feature on the front row, but Dave Bailey quickly took over the lead. Wild action ensued mid-pack as the points leaders made their way forward. The racing clean and exciting until Larry Czinege, Jr’s engine blew up on the frontstretch, collecting Brian Pescetti and points leader Mike Thorne. 
Pescetti’s night was done, but Thorne’s car suffered only body damage and he was able to continue.

Nobody could catch Phil Nyssen again on Friday night and he cruised to his third straight victory. Cory Turner emerged from an entertaining race to get the runner-up spot, followed by Bailey, Devin Habiuk, and Wyatt Van Wart. Mike Thorne salvaged a 6th place finish with his damaged machine. It was only the third time this season that Thorne has not finished in the top 5.

“This is awesome,” said Nyssen after the race. “This car is running just so good. We can go anywhere. Last year I could only do the top, and couldn’t do anything on the bottom, but this year I can go anywhere I want it to go, and it’s just awesome to drive.

Heat races for the 22 car field were claimed by Dave Bailey, Larry Czinege, Jr., and Mike Thorne.

HRW AUTOMOTIVE MINI STOCKS
Mike Giberson and Ethan Martin began the Mini Stock feature on the front row, but Jeremy Hughes quickly made his way forward while the race was plagued by early caution flags. Hughes got out front and took off to claim his third win of the season, followed by Mike Evers, Steve Hess, Mike Taylor, and Abel Castelein.

“I’ve had some really bad luck this year,” said Jeremy after the race. 
“I’ve blown 2 tires while leading, blew a motor while leading, then last week a map sensor wire broke, so this feels good. We changed the engine in this thing last night and got it running at about midnight.”

Heat races for the 25 car field were claimed by Mike Taylor, Lee Hils, and Steve Hess.

PIERCED PARTS BOMBERS
Sarah Rutherford led most of the Bomber feature race until Rodney Rutherford got by in the late going. Rodney’s car faltered though, and Sarah got another chance. She held on to get the win after a late restart, and it was an emotional one for the first time winner who took an extra victory lap.

“That was for my friend Jay McDonough who drowned at Sauble Beach yesterday,” Sarah told the crowd after the race. “So I did an extra donut for ‘Donut’.”

Heat races for the 19 car field went to Jeremy May and Jesse McDonald.

NEXT WEEK AT OHSWEKEN
Jones Brown Insurance presents the third round of the “Northern Summer Nationals” next Friday, August 19. The Corr/Pak Merchandising Sprints will be joined by the Southern Ontario Sprints, ASCS Sprints on Dirt, and ASCS Patriots for the 3rd of 4 rounds in the miniseries.

TILBURY TORNADO HITS OHSWEKEN WINNER’S CIRCLE

by Tommy Goudge (August 5, 2011) – Kyle Patrick ended a winless drought of more than three years on Friday night at Ohsweken Speedway. The Tilbury driver went to the Engine Pro Racing Winner’s Circle despite driving much of the Corr/Pak Merchandising Sprint Car feature with no water left in his cooling system. Phil Nyssen won his second Lighthouse Tattoos Thunder Stock feature in a row, while Abel Castelein claimed a special win in the “Art Hill Memorial 42” for HRW Automotive Mini Stocks, and Rodney Rutherford got the Pierced Parts Bombers win.

CORR/PAK MERCHANDISING SPRINT CARS
Kyle Patrick and Kyle Moffit started on the front row of the Sprint Car feature and spent much of the 20 lap distance side-by-side. Patrick officially led the first 8 laps before Moffit got by in traffic. It was apparent early on that Patrick had lost a radiator hose, but that didn’t slow him down one bit, as he was hungry for his first feature win since Spetember 7, 2007.

Patrick was able to cool things down when the caution flag flew for a Wayne Ashton spin, and again during a red flag period when Steve Goldner tipped over in turn 3. Moffit was the leader for the lap 16 restart, but he too experienced mechanical problems and couldn’t keep the determined Patrick behind him. Patrick got the lead and held it for the final 2 laps, while Moffit settled for 2nd. Jamie Collard had another strong run with a 3rd place finish, followed by Todd Hoddick, and Travis Cunningham.

Heat races for the 22 car field went to Kyle Patrick, Kyle Moffit, and Keith Dempster, while Jamie Collard was the Nathan Ackland State Farm Insurance “Top Gun” for topping the heat race passing points.

LIGHTHOUSE TATTOOS THUNDER STOCKS
An entertaining Thunder Stock feature ensued between some caution periods and one red flag. Wild action ensued early, but it turned into a three horse race between Phil Nyssen, Mike Thorne, and Larry Czinege, Jr. Nyssen prevailed in the end, claiming his 2nd consecutive feature win. Mike Thorne scored another top 5 finish by claiming the runner-up spot, followed by Czinege, Wyatt Van Wart, and Lee Winger.

Heat races for the 26 car field were claimed by Van Wart, Czinege, and Thorne.

HRW AUTOMOTIVE MINI STOCKS
The biggest race of the Mini Stock season took the green flag with Lee Hils and Abel Castelein on the front row for the “Art Hill Memorial 42” which honours the only driver ever to lose their life at Ohsweken Speedway. Hils had the early lead, but eventually fell out of the race with mechanical problems. Castelein drove a steady race and stayed out front while many of his competitors were not able to finish.

Craig Erskine advanced to 2nd and began eating into Castelein’s lead but ran out of time, and then simply had to survive the final few laps when his car began to falter. He held on to finish 2nd, while Kevin Hilborn had a 3rd place finish in sight before his car overheated. Steve Hess had a damaged machine after an early incident, but persevered to take 3rd, followed by Nick Roth, and Jason Lungaro, who started in the 12th row.

Heat races for the 35 car field went to Karl Sault, Mike Taylor, Nick Roth, and Jake Brown, while Rob Hoskins won the B-Main.

PIERCED PARTS BOMBERS
Championship leader Rodney Rutherford survived a wild Bomber feature and eventually pulled away for the win. Jesse McDonald kept the points chase close by finishing 2nd, followed by Dusty DeBoer, Davey Boughton, and Greg Dadson.

Heat races for the 19 car field went to Dadson and McDonald.
