GALE’S AUTO AFTERMARKET PRESENTS SOUTHERN ONTARIO SPRINTS & $2,000-TO-WIN BROCK LEONARD MEMORIAL 50 ON CANADA DAY!

by Tommy Goudge (June 29, 2016) – Ohsweken, Ontario – Ohsweken Speedway’s 21st season of racing continues this Friday, July 1 when Gale’s Auto Aftermarket presents the Southern Ontario Sprints tour versus the Kool Kidz-Corr/Pak 360 Sprint Cars, and the Brock Leonard Memorial 50 for Thunder Stocks.

SOSLogoThe Kool Kidz Corr/Pak 360 Sprint Cars will defend home turf against the Southern Ontario Sprints tour on Canada Day, while the Affordable Towing & Recovery Thunder Stocks will do the same against the traveling drivers from the Duel on the Dirt series. The Strickland’s GMC Crate Sprint Cars, HRW Automotive Mini Stocks, and Gale’s Auto Aftermarket Bombers will also be contesting the 7th round of Ohsweken’s weekly racing series.

Glenn Styres won the SOS vs. Kool Kidz-Corr/Pak event in 2015 during a summer streak of 5 consecutive A-Feature wins at Ohsweken which propelled him to the track championship. Other recent SOS vs. Kool Kidz-Corr/Pak winners include Steve Collins (2014) and Mikey Kruchka (2013). Mitch Brown leads the Ohsweken championship standings heading into Friday’s event, while Jamie Turner is the SOS championship leader.

brock decalOhsweken’s Thunder Stock teams will contest the longest feature race of their season in the running of running of the 5th annual Brock Leonard Memorial 50 lap race. Thanks to the generosity of sponsor Gale’s Auto Aftermarket, the 2016 edition of the Brock Leonard Memorial 50 will pay $2,000 to the winner, $1,000 to the runner-up, $500 to 3rd place, and a minimum $100 to all A-Feature starters.

The race honours Brock Leonard, a long-time speedway official and friend to many in the Ontario racing community, who passed away in 2012. Previous winners include Brad Herron (2012), Ryan Turner (2013), Lee Winger (2014), and Karl Sault (2015).  The race will also serve as the first combined race on the 2016 Duel on the Dirt schedule, bringing invaders from Merrittville Speedway, Humberstone Speedway, and Brighton Speedway.

An average of 117 drivers have signed in for each of the first six rounds of Ohsweken’s 2016 season. Racing will take the green flag at 7:30pm this Friday, July 1. Visit the official Ohsweken Speedway website at www.OhswekenSpeedway.com for ticket prices and more information.

The Quebec driver was making his first Ohsweken appearance of the season, and first since narrowly missing his 4th CSCN win last September.

KOOL KIDZ-CORR/PAK 360 SPRINT CARS (19 entries)
Mitch Brown started 2nd and led the 360 Sprint Car feature from start to finish to claim his second win of the Ohsweken season. Polesitter Cory Turner gave chase over much of the 20 lap distance, but saw 14th starter Glenn Styres steal the runner-up spot away with 2 laps to go.

Cory Turner settled for 3rd, followed by Jim Huppunen, and 17th starter Ryan Turner. Dave Dykstra saw a top 5 finish slip through his fingers when he rolled to a stop in turn three on the last lap. Dylan Westbrook came into the night off a runner-up finish last week, and had just broken into the top five when mechanical problems derailed his race on lap 8.

Heat race wins went to Cory Turner, Dave Dykstra, and Mitch Brown, while Dylan Westbrook won the Ackland Insurance Top Gun Award. Mitch Brown now holds the Championship standings lead by 9 points over brother Jake, who leads the Rookie of the Year standings.

STRICKLAND’S GMC CRATE SPRINT CARS (17 entries)
Front row starters Ryan Hunsinger and Mack DeMan raced side-by-side for many of the first 18 laps of the Crate Sprint Car feature, but a potentially close finish went by the wayside when Hunsinger ran out of fuel.

A lengthy yellow flag period didn’t help Hunsinger, as his car faltered after a late restart. DeMan capitalized on the opportunity to drive away and take his first Crate Sprint Car feature win of the season, while Jesse McDonald stole the runner-up spot from Brad Herron on the last lap. Herron settled for third, followed by Aaron Turkey and 12th starter Josh Shantz.

Heat race wins went to Mike Thorne and Brad Herron, while Herron also claimed the Ackland Insurance Top Gun Award. Ryan Hunsinger’s lead in the Championship standings has been erased, as Josh Shantz is just 1 point behind Hunsinger, and Brad Herron is just 3 points behind Shantz.

AFFORDABLE TOWING & RECOVERY THUNDER STOCKS (31 entries)
Rob Murray made a huge move early in his first Ohsweken Thunder Stock feature of the season, as he went from 21st to 16th on the first lap, and then all the way to 5th by the end of lap 2. He then squeezed around eventual race winner Ryan Dinning on lap 4, and past early leader Ken Sargent on lap 8.

Murray held the lead just ahead of a big pack of contenders until lap 13, when Dinning’s pressure and nudging of Murray finally opened the door for Dinning. Dinning stayed out front for the remainder of the race, while the rest of the top 5 positions seemed to change hands each lap. Karl Sault claimed the runner-up spot, followed by Murray, Dave Bailey, and Dereck Lemyre.

Heat race wins went to Kacey Huffman, Ryan Dinning, Dereck Lemyre, and Dale Gyokery. Dave Bailey’s lead in the Championship standings sits at 13 points over Karl Sault, while Jason Lungaro leads the Rookie of the Year standings.

HRW AUTOMOTIVE MINI STOCKS (32 entries)
Brandon Crumbie started 17th and quickly made his way to the front of the Mini Stock feature, but saw Mark Bazuin get by the veteran of pavement racing on lap 8. Crumbie admitted afterwards that Bazuin looked to have the race in hand until his car suffered a flat tire just before a restart with 3 laps remaining.

Bazuin’s misfortune allowed Crumbie to re-assume the lead and go on to win his first dirt track feature. Chris Ryckman drove from 16th to finish 2nd, while Nick Sarantakos charged from 25th to 3rd, followed by Rob Twitchett and Martin Schroeder.

Heat race wins went to Rob Twitchett, Chris French, and Chris Ryckman, while Patrick Abrahamsson won the B-Feature. Problems for Jon Janssens allowed his brother Brandon to break the tie atop the Championship standings and open a 19 point lead over Chris Ryckman, while Jon fell to 4th. Brandon Crumbie now leads the Rookie of the Year standings over Dusty Deboer.

Jared Zimbardi started on the front row and led every lap of the 360 Sprint Car feature to claim the Kool Kidz-Corr/Pak vs. PST challenge race at Ohsweken for the third year in a row. Pole-sitter Dylan Westbrook ran consistently faster lap times at several points during the 25 lap feature, but saw his rhythm broken by first a yellow flag, and then slower traffic later in the race.

Heat race wins went to Dylan Westbrook, Mitch Brown, and Dane Lorenc, while Lee Winger won the Dash race. Jake Brown maintained his 8 point lead over brother Mitch in the 360 Sprint Car championship standings, as only show-up points were on the line for the special challenge event.

KOOL KIDZ-CORR/PAK 360 SPRINT CARS (22 entries)
Mikey Kruchka, Glenn Styres, and Dain Naida turned the second half of the 360 Sprint Car A-Feature into a spectacular race, officially trading the lead 5 times in the last 8 laps.

The 20 lap race began with Naida taking the lead, with Dylan Westbrook settling into second, followed by Kruchka, Jim Huppunen, and Kyle Patrick. Behind them, 14th starter Styres passed 8 cars in the first 2 laps. The running order remained static until Westbrook spun in turn four with 7 laps complete. While Westbrook was able to keep moving and restart 7th, Tyler Hendricks was not and brought out the yellow flag.

Kruchka saw a chance to take the lead erased after the restart when John Burbridge, Jr. crashed hard on the frontstretch. Burbridge climbed from his machine uninjured, saying he felt something break before the crash.

Styres moved to third when the race started again, but the pace slowed again just before halfway when Derek Jonathan made contact with the wall in turn two. The stage was then set for the fireworks to come, as the three contenders restarted nose-to-tail.

Trading positions multiple times each lap, Kruchka had the lead at the start/finish line on laps 12 and 16, while Naida got back into the lead in between. Styres threw several slide jobs at Naida and Kruchka before taking the lead on lap 17 and opening a small gap. Meanwhile, Westbrook and Mitch Brown were drawing close to the top 3 as well. Kruchka got around Naida on lap 18 and set his sights on catching Styres, but it seemed to be and impending win for Styres.

Kruchka was still trying to get around a lapped car when the white flag flew, but Styres was forced to check up behind Curtis Gartly exiting turn two, and Kruchka pounced. Styres stayed high behind Gartly entering turn three, and Kruchka dove low to put a slide job on both and emerge with the win in his first Ohsweken start of the season. Styres settled for the runner-up spot, followed by Naida, Westbrook, and Brown.

Heat race wins went to Jim Huppunen, Dylan Westbrook, and Conor Mahoney, while Dain Naida won the Ackland Insurance Top Gun Award. Jake Brown continues to lead both the 360 Sprint Car championship standings and Rookie of the Year standings.

Ryan Hunsinger’s dominance of the Crate Sprint Car division continued with his third consecutive A-Feature win to open the season. Josh Shantz led the first lap before Hunsinger took the lead for the remainder of the 20 lap distance.

Hunsinger opened a large lead while Shantz fell into a joust for the runner-up spot with Holly Porter and Aaron Turkey, but the lead shrunk significantly in the closing laps. Shantz made up a lot of ground while Hunsinger negotiated traffic and tried the outside groove.

AFFORDABLE TOWING & RECOVERY THUNDER STOCKS (26 entries)
Carnage ensued on the first lap of the Thunder Stock A-Feature when Jeremy May and Logan Shwedyk collided and collected at least 8 other cars. Points leader and opening night winner Dave Bailey, and week two winner Ryan Dinning were among those collected. Bailey – who eventually finished 6th – and other drivers used several ensuing yellow flags to go to the pits for repairs, but Dinning was among those who were done for the night.

Jim Lampman held the top spot through several yellow flags, with Karl Sault squeezing to Lampman’s inside several times and trading some paint. While Lampman and Sault fought for real estate close to the inside wall, Wyatt Van Wart drove past both of them on lap 17 and held on to take the win over Jason Lungaro, Sault, Dale Gyokery, and Lampman.

Heat race wins went to Kacey Huffman, Jim Lampman, and Dale Gyokery. Dave Bailey holds a slim 2 point margin over Dale Gyokery in the Thunder Stock championship points standings, while Jason Lungaro has the Rookie of the Year standings lead.
