CORR/PAK MERCHANDISING 360 SPRINT CARS (21 entries)

The 5th Ohsweken Speedway feature win of Dain Naida’s career came in dramatic fashion. Naida traded the lead several times with young upstart Dane Lorenc, then held off a last-corner charge from Glenn Styres to win by just 0.095 seconds. The first 18 laps were completed under green flag conditions before Dave Dykstra’s stopped car brought out the race’s only caution flag and set up a 2 lap dash to the finish. Styres restarted 3rd behind Naida and Lorenc, and quickly moved into 2nd, but Naida staved off Styres’ slide job in turn 4 and took the win. Styres settled for 2nd, followed by Lorenc, 13th starter Jim Huppunen, and Keith Dempster. Styres added to his championship points lead, and is now ahead of Mitch Brown by 42.

STRICKLAND’S GMC CRATE SPRINT CARS (12 entries)

A grinding crash in the first turn on the first lap took Ed Green, Mark Czuba, and Aaron Turkey out of the race, while Jake Brown dropped out of the race at the same time with mechanical problems. All 3 drivers involved in the crash were able to exit their heavily-damaged cars uninjured. Kyle Durnin led the first lap when the race restarted, but Dylan Westbrook took over on lap 2 and went on to take the win, and set a new 15 lap track record in the process. Durnin settled for the runner-up spot, while Ryan Hunsinger drove from 11th to 3rd, Mike Thorne finished 4th, and Tyler Hendricks rounded out the top 5. Jake Brown also set a new 6 lap track record on his way to a heat race win. Turkey’s troubles hurt his championship chances, as Hunsinger now leads the standings by 45 points.

Bazuin prevailed for the $1,000 win, with Lafantaisie settling for 2nd, followed by 26th starter Jon Janssens, Lungaro, and Brandon Janssens.
