DEMPSTER SHAKES THE MONKEY With OHSWEKEN Southern Ontario Sprints Victory

For Immediate Release – Ken Pelkie for the SOS

The Southern Ontario Sprints made their next to last appearance at Ohsweken Speedway Friday, August 10th with Keith Dempster shaking a three year long winless streak taking the “A” Main in convincing fashion. As the track returned to the smooth, fast, and dustless surface that it has been known for, Dempster modestly stood in victory lane and was joined by a jubilant Styres Racing crew who celebrated their first victory of the 2007 season.

“I can’t forget Dave McLeod who was my car owner one year ago” Dempster stated emotionally. “We lost him this past winter and I owe this win and my whole situation this year with Glenn to him”. Derek Jonathan and Bob Crawford paced the field to the green flag with Crawford getting the early lead as the feature event got underway. Crawford continued to lead for the first five circuits until Adam West took control of the point. The red flag waved on lap eight as Mark Swain made contact with second place Bob Crawford as he was being lapped at the exit of turn two. Swain flipped violently into the new catch fence and came to rest between the guard rail and fence, emerging from the ordeal uninjured. Crawford also retired from the event with enough damage to end his evening.On the restart, West again took control which he held until lap twelve. Dempster who had overhauled second place Jamie Collard one lap earlier, ducked under West as the two exited turn two. Dempster held on for the rest of the distance to take the win over Kyle Patrick, Warren Mahoney, Glenn Styres and Rob Pietz. West came across the line sixth followed by Empire Super Sprint star Alain Bergeron, Brad Malloy, Joe Middlemiss, and Fred Cade returning form a trip to the 360 Nationals in Knoxville, Iowa rounding out the top ten.

Heat races were won by Jamie COLLARD, Derek JONATHON, Kyle PATRICK and Glenn STYRES. The B Main was won by Rob PIETZ.
