PRICE-MILLER, DEMAN, DINNING, & JANSSENS TAKE WINS AT ARROW EXPRESS CANADIAN SPRINT CAR NATIONALS

By Tommy Goudge (Sunday, September 18, 2016) OHSWEKEN, Ontario – 65 360 Sprint Cars returned to Ohsweken Speedway on Sunday, September 18 to compete in the 12th annual Arrow Express Canadian Sprint Car Nationals. 30 of those drivers qualified for the 35 lap A-Feature, and Kokomo, Indiana’s Parker Price-Miller was the driver standing in Mobil 1 Victory Lane after another thrilling CSCN race garnered him a $12,000 payday. Ryan Dinning was the Ohsweken Speedway Thunder Stock victor, while Mack DeMan and Jon Janssens won Dash For Cash events for the Strickland’s GMC Crate Sprint Cars and HRW Automotive Mini Stocks, respectively.

OHSWEKEN SPEEDWAY RACE REPORT
SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 18, 2016
OHSWEKEN, ONTARIO, CANADA
CANADIAN SPRINT CAR NATIONALS
PRESENTED BY ARROW EXPRESS
TOTAL ENTRIES – 112

———————————————————–
CANADIAN SPRINT CAR NATIONALS 360 SPRINT CARS (65 entries)
Parker Price-Miller and 2014 Canadian Sprint Car Nationals winner Jessica Friesen began the 35 lap A-Feature on the front row. The teammates for the night traded the lead on several occasions, while three-time CSCN winner Steve Poirier made it a three-way race for the $12,000 winner’s prize. Price-Miller generally stuck to the high groove, while Friesen was down low or in the middle, and Poirier entered the fray at the halfway mark.

The race was slowed by a yellow flag on lap 9 when Alex Vigneault hit the outside wall on the frontstretch, just as the leaders were about to take on heavy traffic. The yellow quickly turned to red when Brandon Wimmer rolled over on the backstretch. Another yellow flag slowed the action 10 laps later when Chris Steele hit the inside wall, which resulted in a bent wheel and flat tire.

The last 16 laps of the race went by quickly, and Friesen saw both Price-Miller and Poirier get past her. Poirier threw repeated slide job attempts at the 19 year old driver, but Price-Miller withstood the barrage and pulled away to take the win. Poirier settled for the runner-up spot, followed by Friesen. 24th starter Chuck Hebing’s late charge almost resulted in a podium finish, but he settled for 4th after stealing that position from Dustin Daggett at the last minute.

2011 CSCN winner Sam Hafertepe Jr. charged from 19th to finish 6th, followed by 13th starter Coleman Gulick, Ryan Susice, Mitch Brown, and 27th starter and 2015 CSCN winner Bryan Howland.

The win brought some redemption for Price-Miller, who saw the 2015 CSCN win slip through his fingers in one of the closest finishes in Ohsweken Speedway history.

“I don’t know how I didn’t mess up those last five laps,” said the relieved driver in victory lane. “I was nervous the whole race. Jessica and Steve are obviously pretty good here. I was just doing everything I could to hold them off.

“We thought we had brake issues at the shop today, but we figured they were fine…then without about five laps to go they got really squishy, and I was having to use my wing and get the car sideways to slow me down. I saw Steve there a few times, but I was driving the crap out of it. I didn’t care what I had to do to win – Parked It for BC!”

Poirier was philosophical about his third runner-up finish at CSCN in the last four years.

“That was a fun race,” said the three-time CSCN winner. “At the beginning of the race I didn’t think I would have anything for Jessica or Parker, but in the middle of the race Parker went out of the track a little bit, and Jessica was starting to leave the bottom open, and my car was coming and I might have something for them. (Parker) raced me clean last year, so I was on the inside just leaving enough room for him to maneuver on the outside, but it was a pretty fun battle.”

Friesen led the most laps in the race, but settled for third place at the end. Though disappointed in the result, she was happy to be so competitive despite very limited time racing this season.

“Third is obviously not really where we want to be, but we’ll take it,” said the 2014 CSCN winner. “I just need to run some more laps. It’s been awhile since I’ve been in a car. This was the fourth race out this year. We just got a little bit too free there at the end, and I needed to be able to move around, and just really couldn’t.”

NIGHT BEFORE THE NATIONALS
PRESENTED BY BURGER BARN
TOTAL ENTRIES – 119

———————————————————–
NIGHT BEFORE THE NATIONALS 360 SPRINT CARS (60 entries)
— The first race on the schedule for the evening was a makeup A-Feature for the Empire Super Sprints tour which was postponed by weather on August 5. Jordan Poirier and Paul Kinney brought the 24 car field to the green flag after Steve Poirier dropped off the front row with brake issues. Jordan Poirier and Kinney exchanged slide jobs twice over the opening three laps before Kinney emerged with the lead.

Kinney was in traffic 10 laps in, and holding off Ohsweken regular Dylan Westbrook at the same time. The race was slowed on lap 12 when Dave Dykstra coasted to a stop with a flat tire. Following the restart, Shawn Donath got by Westbrook for second, while Kinney stayed up front.

Donath took the lead from Kinney in turn three on lap 19, and the two drivers continued to battle in traffic. Kinney retook the lead coming to the white flag, and held off Donath to secure his first career win at Ohsweken. While he didn’t start the race, Steve Poirier had already locked up his seventh career Empire Super Sprints championship.

— Jared Horstman led the first of the Twin 15 lap Night Before The Nationals A-Features to the green flag. Dylan Westbrook quickly jumped up to second, while Bryan Howland and Steve Poirier battled for third.

The race was slowed twice, on laps 7 and 10. Westbrook took the lead from Horstman after each restart, but the latter driver consistently maintained his pace and retook the lead. Horstman went back to the outside lane on lap 11, and took the lead from Westbrook for good one lap later after a side-by-side race for the top spot.

Westbrook and Poirier swapped the runner-up spot several times over the final two laps before Poirier came away with that position ahead of Westbrook. Horstman earned a guaranteed starting spot in the Canadian Sprint Car Nationals A-Feature with the Night Before The Nationals victory.

— Mark Smith lined up third for the second Twin 15, but wasted no time darting to the lead past pole-sitter Brandon Wimmer in turn one. Yan Bilodeau quickly drove to second, while Jordan Thomas raced into third.

Smith dominated the race, leading by a full straightaway before Bilodeau reeled him in while they raced through traffic. Smith wouldn’t be stopped though, as he navigated through the traffic without incident to claim his guaranteed starting spot in the Canadian Sprint Car Nationals A-Feature.

— Empire Super Sprints champion Steve Poirier led all 12 laps of the Dave McLeod Memorial Shootout for his second win of the weekend, following a heat race win earlier in the night. Poirier stayed ahead of NRA Sprint Invaders champion Jared Horstman and Ohsweken Speedway champion Mitch Brown to claim the victory.

— Yan Bilodeau started at the front of the 13 lap Kevin Ward Jr. Young Stars Challenge, and held off Southern Ontario Sprints champion Dylan Westbrook for the victory. The youngest starter in the race was 15-year-old Paulie Colagiovanni, while the oldest was 21-year-old Devin Caron.

STRICKLAND’S GMC CRATE SPRINT CARS (17 entries)
Holly Porter set a new time trial track record and lined up on the pole for the final full length Strickland’s GMC Crate Sprint Car race of the season. Second starter Mack DeMan challenged Porter for the lead at the halfway mark as he cut into a significant lead which Porter had built.

A pair of cautions slowed the race in the latter half of the 20 lap affair, and Porter proved strong enough to hold off Mack DeMan for the win. Jesse McDonald drove to a strong 3rd place finish, followed by Shone Evans and Ryan Hunsinger.

Mike Thorne was the only one of the four eligible drivers to accept the “602 Challenge”, and charged from the back of the field to finish 6th.
