REAUME RUSHES TO SUMMER SIZZLER WIN AT OHSWEKEN

By Tommy Goudge (July 31, 2009) – Andrew Reaume has dominated Dirt Late Model competition at South Buxton Raceway lately, and a change of venue to Ohsweken did nothing to slow down the Blenheim-based driver as he raced to a $2,000 victory on Awesome Racewear night at the Speedway. Jamie Cox held off a determined Brad Herron for the ESSO Thunder Stocks win, while Mitchell Brown edged out Steve Hess for ESSO Mini Stock honours, and Karl Sault got the win in the Bomber division.

Ed Carley and Brett Reaume started the twenty-five lap UMP Late Model Summer Sizzler on the front row, but the action quickly slowed as Tim MacKenzie pounded the backstretch wall and retired for the evening. Back under green, Carley took command, but Andrew Reaume was blasting through the pack, and made his way into the lead during the fourth lap. Carley gave chase as the two quickly approached lapped traffic, and Chris Ross was the man on the move, advancing to third by the time the ninth circuit was completed.

Mike Lewis suffered a blown left rear tire on lap sixteen and hit the inside wall in turn one, ending his evening. Back under green, Reaume held the point while Carley, whose car had been smoking all night, gave chase with Ross also in the hunt. On lap twenty-three, Carley pulled off the track with engine problems, leaving Ross to try to chase down Reaume. Ross got one last chance at the win after Paul Rivait’s stopped in turn four to bring out a caution and one lap dash to the finish, but Reaume was able to hold on. Ross settled for second, followed by Brett Reaume, Kirk Hooker, and Joe Field. Heat races for the seventeen Late Models in attendance were claimed by Mark Glassford and Brett Reaume

In ESSO Thunder Stocks action, Kyle Magrin and Mark Thorne started on the front row, but it was Shayne Pierce quickly taking over the lead, with Jamie Cox and a host of others giving chase. Pierce and Billy Bleich entered the night separated by just seven points in the championship standings, and Pierce looked to stand a chance at extending that slim margin, but a flat tire forced him to the pits at the same time as Bleich also pitted. This left Cox out front with Brad Herron giving chase, while Bleich and Pierce diced with traffic and each other at the back of the pack. Despite repeated attempts at the lead, Herron could not get by the Cox machine, and Jamie went on to his second feature win of the season, with Herron second, Lee Winger third, Jeremy Bean fourth, and Mike Ward fifth. Heat races for the nineteen car ESSO Thunder Stock field were claimed by Pierce and Winger.

The ESSO Mini Stocks feature turned into a classic battle between Mitchell Brown and Steve Hess, who traded the lead numerous times during the fifteen lap feature. In the end it was Brown sneaking by Wednesday night feature winner Hess for his eighth feature win of the season, while Hess settled for second, followed by Ethan Martin, Rick Emberson, and Paul Goodale. Heat races for the eighteen ESSO Mini-Stocks were claimed by Rob Slater and Steve Hess.

The Bomber feature was dominated by Jesse McDonald, but a safety equipment infraction resulted in disqualification, handing the win to Karl Sault. Shawn Ireland came home in the runner-up spot.

Kids Box Car races took to the track at intermission, while a big thank-you goes out to ESSO Thunder Stock competitor Rob Disher for giving away two kids bicycles as well!
