“Friday The 13th” Unlucky for SOS

Bill Oldroyd   
  
Ohsweken Speedway – August 13, 2004   
  
The tenth round of the Southern Ontario Sprints was scheduled for Ohsweken Speedway, Friday, August 13th and for a couple of reasons, it truly was an unlucky day.  Rain, washed out the running of the feature and a violent crash in the third heat likely ended the season for one of the SOS regular competitors.    
  
Al Gaukel of Cambridge had his right front wheel collapse at the end of the front stretch sending him into a sever flip in turn one.  The crash caused extensive damage to the #99 Lee-Tronics.com machine but fortunately, Gaukel was able to climb out of the wreckage shaken, but otherwise un-injured.  
  
A solid field of twenty-six sprinters were on-hand and all the heat races were completed prior to the skies opening up.  Going into the night, Glenn Styres from Ohsweken held a slim five-point lead over Cody Geldart of Mossley.  Geldart won the first heat race putting the pressure on Styres who responded by taking victory in heat two.  Heat three saw Gary Evans of Thorndale take home his first-ever, SOS heat race win.   
  
Next up the series will travel to Brighton Speedway to close out the weekend.  Then on Saturday, August 21st the SOS/SOD Can-Am Challenge will begin with a trip to Owendale Speedway in Michigan and then back to Ohsweken Speedway August 27th to complete the two race challenge.  The SOS will run a double feature during the August 27th event to make-up for the cancelled feature from August 13th.
