KOOL KIDZ-CORR/PAK 360 SPRINT CARS (20 entries)
Cory Turner brought a 20 car field to the green flag for the Kool Kidz-Corr/Pak 360 Sprint Car main event. The Caistor Centre, Ont. driver led the opening laps while fourth starting Dylan Westbrook raced past Dain Naida for second on lap five.

The only caution of the race slowed the field on lap nine and erased a half-second leader for Turner. Westbrook restarted and took advantage of the new-found track position. Westbrook was glued to Turner’s tail tank on the restart and on lap 11 executed a perfect slide job in turn four to take the lead from Turner.

Westbrook navigated lapped track without incident over the final nine laps to secure the victory. Cory Turner recorded a second-place finish ahead of Dain Naida, Jake Brown and Jim Huppunen.

STRICKLAND’S GMC CRATE SPRINT CARS (17 entries)
The Strickland’s GMC Crate Sprint Cars returned for their final make-up feature of the season with two 15-lap features. The first feature lined up based on the August 5 completed heat races with Mike Thorne leading the opening laps from the pole position.

Third-starting Mack DeMan of Mississauga, Ont. quickly pressured Thorne and took the lead on lap four. He encountered lapped traffic on lap nine while running ahead of Thorne and Shone Evans. The slower cars weren’t an issue for DeMan who cruised to the victory ahead of Evans while Holly Porter drove to third.

The second feature was the final one overall on the night and DeMan earned the pole via the redraw. DeMan led a three-car breakaway in the early laps with Aaron Turkey and Brad Herron in tow. The lead was erased on lap four when Corey Gruhl, making Crate Sprint Car debut, spun in turn four to bring out the yellow.

Turkey used the restart to challenge DeMan in the top lane and the two raced nose-to-tail at the halfway point. On lap 10, the leaders were in traffic and Turkey struggled to get around a pair of cars, breaking his momentum and allowing DeMan to retain the lead. Turkey made one final bid for the lead on the last lap, but spun in the final corner while DeMan drove to the checkered flag. Jesse McDonald and Thorne avoided the spinning Turkey to finish second and third, respectively.

OHSWEKEN SPEEDWAY THUNDER STOCKS (31 entries)
The Ohsweken Speedway Thunder Stocks were 28 cars strong for their feature event. Fifth starter Jason Lungaro led the opening three laps until the race was slowed for the first of two cautions. On the restart, Ryan Dinning drove to third after starting in the 21st position with the 20th starter Dave Bailey right behind him.

On lap six, Dinning took the lead briefly during a three-wide battle, but saw his lead erased by the final yellow on lap nine. Bailey used a perfectly executed crossover move in turns one and two to steal the lead from Dinning in the bottom lane. Bailey disposed of the lapped traffic effortlessly over the final 11 laps, but Dinning remained in touch with Karl Sault in third. Bailey, however, was strong enough to retain the lead and earn the checkered flag over Dinning and Sault.

HRW AUTOMOTIVE MINI STOCKS (44 entries)
The biggest race of the season for the HRW Automotive Mini Stocks brought one of the biggest fields. Forty-three cars were signed in for the 42-lap Art Hill Memorial.

Jonathan Ayrton and Barry Westman brought the field to the green flag, but Mark Bazuin and Brandon Janssens quickly positioned themselves in a battle for the lead up front. The two drivers exchanged the lead three times before the first caution on lap 15 for a stopped Steve Miller in turn three.

Bazuin missed a shift on the restart, allowing Janssens to take the lead ahead of Brian Crosgrove and Jake Bazuin. Through two more restarts, Jake Bazuin mounted a charge at Janssens and held the lead on lap 30.

Jake Bazuin and Janssens raced door-to-door for several laps and continuously swapped the lead until the race’s final caution on lap 36. Janssens remained in the outside lane around the rim of the racetrack, while Jake Bazuin was meticulous on the bottom. Janssens lost enough ground with two laps to go for Jake Bazuin to seal the victory at the checkered flag and win his first Art Hill Memorial. Janssens retained second ahead of Mark Bazuin.

DURNIN MOTORS PRESENTS MOTORCYCLE NIGHT & RESCHEDULED ART HILL MEMORIAL ON AUGUST 26, PLUS DOUBLE CRATE SPRINT FEATURES!

by Tommy Goudge (August 25, 2016) – Ohsweken, Ontario – Ohsweken Speedway’s 21st season of racing continues this Friday, August 26 when Durnin Motors presents Motorcycle Night, and the rescheduled Art Hill Memorial 42.

Calling all motorcyclists! All riders who show a valid “M” licence at the front gates will be admitted for just $10 this Friday. Flat Track Canada will have some of their racing motorcycles on display, where tickets will be available for the final round of their Canadian Championship Race Series coming up at Ohsweken on Saturday, September 24. Visit www.FlatTrackCanada.com for more information.

The annual “Art Hill Memorial 42” is the biggest, longest, and highest-paying event of the season for Ohsweken’s HRW Automotive Mini Stock division racers, with a feature race more than twice the distance of their regular races, and a $1,000 winner’s prize on the line.

The race honours Art Hill, who suffered a fatal brain aneurysm while competing in his #42 machine at Ohsweken in 1999. Past Art Hill Memorial winners include well-known Ohsweken names such as Rick Emberson, Lee Winger, Robbie Rounce, Marc Hallett, Dave Bailey, Mitch Brown, Trevor Goulding, and Karl Sault, and Wall of Fame inductee Abel Castelein.

Mark Bazuin is going for a three-peat this Friday, as he has won the past two Art Hill Memorial 42 A-Features. His win in the 2015 Art Hill Memorial 42 made him the first back-to-back winner of the event since Mitch Brown accomplished the feat in 2008 and 2009.

The Kool Kidz Corr/Pak 360 Sprint Cars, Strickland’s GMC Crate Sprint Cars, Ohsweken Speedway Thunder Stocks, HRW Automotive Mini Stocks, and Gale’s Auto Aftermarket Bombers will all be in action this Friday, as championship chases are quickly winding down in the weekly racing series.

The Crate Sprint Cars will be running double features this week, as they will complete their A-Feature which was postponed due to rain on August 5. **The Crate Sprints will be running a special double feature format, which will not include heat races.**

An average of 120 drivers have signed in for competition each week this season at Ohsweken. Racing will take the green flag at 7:30pm this Friday, August 26. Visit the official Ohsweken Speedway website at www.OhswekenSpeedway.com for ticket prices and more information.

BEST WESTERN CAIRN CROFT PRESENTS TRAVIS RUTZ LONG TOW AWARD AT CANADIAN SPRINT CAR NATIONALS

by Tommy Goudge (August 24, 2016) – Ohsweken, Ontario – Ohsweken Speedway officials are pleased to announce a new prize to be given out at the Arrow Express Canadian Sprint Car Nationals on September 17.

The Travis Rutz Long Tow Award presented by Best Western Cairn Croft Hotel includes a $250 cash prize for the team which travels the furthest distance to compete in the Canadian Sprint Car Nationals.

The new award is named for Travis Rutz, who traveled more than 4,200 kilometres with his team from their Langley, British Columbia home to race in the 2009 Canadian Sprint Car Nationals. His promising career was cut short a week after Travis arrived in Ohsweken for the first time, as he suffered a severe brain injury in a Sprint Car crash at Terre Haute, Indiana. Although just 21 years old at the time of the crash, Travis’ resume already included a pair of wins in the Gold Cup – western Canada’s most prestigious Sprint Car race – at Edmonton’s Castrol Raceway, and 19 A-Feature wins at Skagit Speedway in Alger, Washington.

Many other cash prizes will also be available, pushing the total purse for the Saturday, September 17 event over $70,000. Stay tuned for more exciting announcements coming soon regarding Canada’s largest Sprint Car event!

A scary wreck in turn one on lap three saw Mike Klazinga tumble and roll to a stop. He was uninjured. The restart provided a perfect opportunity for point leader Dave Bailey to jump to the lead and he did so on lap four. From there, Bailey cruised to a commanding win over DeBoer and third-place finisher Ryan Dinning.

HRW AUTOMOTIVE MINI STOCKS (36 entries)
The HRW Automotive Mini Stocks had a busy night on tap with twin 15-lap features as well. The first race was a make-up for the August 5 feature rainout. Chris French led the opening four laps of the make-up event, but point leader Mark Bazuin was the man on the move. Bazuin began to nurture a lead, but was reeled in by a lap eight caution.

Bazuin met his match in Brandon Crumbie on the restart as the latter driver clawed to the lead. After taking the lead Crumbie had to contend with Brandon Janssens in the closing laps, but never relinquished his spot on the way to the checkered flag.

In the second feature, Patrick Abrahamsson paced the field early after front row starter Joe DeBoer couldn’t get up to speed. Bazuin followed his earlier performance and again took the lead on lap five, this time for good. He held off Brandon Janssens and Abrahamsson to claim the victory.

GALE’S AUTO AFTERMARKET BOMBERS (21 entries)
The first Gale’s Auto Aftermarket Bomber 15-lap feature was also a make-up for an August 5 rain-out. The field struggled to get through the first two corners, bringing out the yellow flag. Paul Longboat led in his No.188, but Wayde Thorne took the lead from him on lap seven and drove to the winner’s circle after successfully navigating through traffic.

Tristan Da Silva initially led the second feature, but was quickly pursued by Dustin Longboat. Wayde Thorne made it a three-car battle for the lead late in the race and created a three-wide battle on the final lap. Longboat emerged the winner ahead of Thorne and Da Silva.

RESCHEDULING DETAILS FOR ART HILL MEMORIAL & OTHER POSTPONED EVENTS

by Tommy Goudge (August 14, 2016) – Ohsweken, Ontario – Ohsweken Speedway officials have rescheduled the Art Hill Memorial 42, and several other events which were postponed due to weather in recent weeks.

Rain interrupted the Friday, August 5 event at Ohsweken, and completed washed out the Friday, August 12 Art Hill Memorial Night. The August 12 event was to have included makeup events for both the Strickland’s Crate Sprint Cars and Gale’s Auto Aftermarket Bombers. The following schedule changes have been made as a result:

-The Art Hill Memorial 42 will run in its entirety on August 26, replacing the regularly-scheduled event for the HRW Automotive Mini Stock division that night.

-The Strickland’s GMC Crate Sprint Car A-Feature postponed on July 8 has again been rescheduled, this time to August 19. Instead of the regularly-scheduled heat races and 20 lap A-Feature, the Crate Sprint Cars will compete in two 15 lap A-Feature events – no heat races will be run.
