STEWART SIZZLES IN BURGER BARN NORTHERN SUMMER NATIONALS

OHSJuly2913

by Tommy Goudge (July 29, 2013) – 96 drivers signed in to race on “Northern Summer Nationals” night presented by Burger Barn at Ohsweken Speedway on Monday. Shane Stewart, Chad Brachmann, Davey Boughton, and Jesse McDonald visited Klotz Canada Synthetic Lubricants Victory Lane.

CORR/PAK MERCHANDISING SPRINT CARS
Regular Friday night racers Tom Huppunen and Glenn Styres made up the front row for the special 25 lap Sprint Car feature, with a guaranteed starting spot in September’s Canadian Sprint Car Nationals on the line for the winner. Invaders Shane Stewart and Tony Stewart started right behind them in row 2, and quickly took over in the 1st and 2nd positions.

All eyes were on the front of the field, as Tony chased Shane through traffic for much of the race. Kyle Moffit brought out a yellow flag on lap 17 when he spun while fighting for a top 10 spot. Tony used the restart as his opportunity to make a move for the lead, and he and Shane traded slide jobs before Tony caught the cushion in turn 3 and flipped wildly to bring out a red flag on lap 18. The 3 time NASCAR champion climbed from his damaged machine uninjured, but done for the night.

Glenn Styres had fallen back to 4th, but moved back around Jessica Zemken for 3rd just before Tony’s crash, and was in position to race Shane for the lead when the race restarted. Shane set a torrid pace while Styres tried to keep up, but Glenn got over the cushion in turn 2 and flipped on lap 23. He was also uninjured, but not able to finish the race. Shane Stewart cruised to the win, with Zemken 2nd, Dain Naida 3rd, Jamie Collard 4th, and Mitch Brown 5th.

Heat races for the 29 car field went to Shane Stewart, Tom Huppunen, and Travis Cunningham, while Shane Ross won the B-Main, and Tony Stewart won the Nathan Ackland State Farm Insurance “Top Gun” Award for accruing the most heat race passing points.

DIRTcar 358 MODIFIEDS
Brandon Easey and Billy Bleich, Sr. made up the front row for the first 358 Modified feature at Ohsweken since 2008. Easey led the first 6 laps before Chad Brachmann took over, and began to open up a lead. Great racing ensued throughout the rest of the field, with several 3 wide moments.

Brachmann got faster during the second half of the feature, and ran the fastest lap of the race on lap 25. He was slowed only by a pair of yellow flags, and won the 30 lap feature by more than 5 seconds. Mat Williamson got the runner-up spot, followed by Mark D’Ilario, Chris Steele, and Erick Rudolph.

Heat races for the 20 car field were claimed by Brandon Easey and Billy Bleich, Sr.

HRW AUTOMOTIVE MINI STOCKS
Mark Verhuel and Mike Giberson were the front row starters for the Mini Stock feature, but several drivers quickly made their way to the front from outside the top 10, with Davey Boughton eventually taking the lead. Boughton pulled away to the feature win, and took over the points lead again as a result. Laura Hughes, Tyler Lafantaisie, Robin Elliott, and Rodney Rutherford chased Boughton to the finish line.

Mark Verhuel, Jonathan Ayrton, and Mark Czuba won the heat races for the 31 car field, while Jason Lungaro won the B-Main.

GALE’S AUTO AFTERMARKET BOMBERS
Skip Brandow and Clinton Nicholls had the front row starting positions for the Bomber feature, but Jesse McDonald made his way to the front and negotiated traffic to get the feature win. Mark Bazuin, Max Chechalk, Tim DeBoer, and Wayde Thorne rounded out the top 5.

Heat races for the 16 car field were claimed by Jesse McDonald and Brady Longboat.
