CORR/PAK MERCHANDISING 360 SPRINT CARS (17 entries)

Mitch Brown was the winner of a riveting non-stop 20 lap 360 Sprint Car feature which took just over 5 minutes to complete. Brown took the lead of the race away from Shane Ross on lap 5, but Kyle Patrick got by on lap 15 and looked to be on the way to his second Ohsweken win of the season. Brown briefly fell back to 3rd behind Todd Hoddick, but rallied to take 2nd back on lap 18, and stole the win away from Patrick on the last lap. The win was Brown’s 2nd of the season at Ohsweken, and helped him to move within 27 points of Glenn Styres heading into next week’s Season Championship Night. Patrick settled for the runner-up spot, followed by Hoddick, Dain Naida, and Styres.
