CORR/PAK MERCHANDISING 360 SPRINT CARS (17 entries)
Mitch Brown and Dain Naida started the 360 Sprint Car feature on the front row, and Brown used his customary low groove to lead the first 9 laps of the race. A yellow flag on lap 6 for Mike Ferrell’s broken rear end brought Naida and Glenn Styres close behind Brown. Naida used the outside line to take the lead, with Styres in close pursuit.

Naida’s bid for the win came to an end after contact with a slower car sent him careening into the catchfence exiting turn two. Naida was able to walk away from the incident, but his car was heavily damaged.

Styres opened a lead, but Brown patiently stuck to his low groove made up ground as the race neared conclusion. Styres stayed ahead to claim his 5th consecutive Ohsweken win by 0.503 seconds over Brown, followed by Todd Hoddick, Cory Turner, and Ryan Turner.

Hoddick remains the championship leader, but Styres and Brown are just 2 points behind tied for second.

STRICKLAND’S GMC CRATE SPRINT CARS (14 entries)
Aaron Turkey opened a substantial lead early in the Crate Sprint Car feature, but began to fade as the race progressed. Steve Lyons held the second position until the halfway mark, when 10th starter Ryan Hunsinger took over and began to chase Turkey down.

Front row starter Josh Shantz faded to 4th early in the race, but stuck with his groove around the high side of the track, and eventually caught Hunsinger and Turkey. Shantz passed Hunsinger on lap 12, and Turkey on lap 13 to claim his second win of the season by 0.371 seconds. Turkey settled for the runner-up spot, followed by Hunsinger, Dylan Westbrook, and Lyons.

AFFORDABLE TOWING & RECOVERY THUNDER STOCKS (37 entries)
Carnage early in the Thunder Stock feature didn’t affect Bill Bleich, Jr., as he moved from 8th on the starting grid to take the lead before the second lap was complete. Dave Bailey moved up from 22nd to take the second spot as the race hit the halfway mark, but saw Ryan Dinning and Ken Sargent get by him after that.

Dinning stayed on Bleich’s bumper for the last 9 laps of the race, but wasn’t able to get by as Bleich took his first win of the season by 0.257 seconds. Dinning settled for second, followed by Sargent, Bailey, and 19th starter Wyatt Van Wart

Bailey now has an 11 point lead over Van Wart in the championship standings.

HRW AUTOMOTIVE MINI STOCKS (38 entries)
Shone Evans led the first 9 laps of the Mini Stock feature, but couldn’t keep Jake Bazuin behind him. Jake started 20th and moved into the top 5 before the race reached the halfway point, while his brother Mark was ahead of him in the second position.

Mark suffered a flat tire on lap 10, and fell through the pack with Gary Hodgson getting caught behind him with nowhere to go.

Jake Bazuin took his first career Mini Stock feature win by 1.167 seconds over Evans, 22nd starter Brandon Janssens, Rob Hoskins, and 17th starter Jason Lungaro.

Lungaro’s lead in the championship standings shrunk even more, as Brandon Janssens is now just 3 points behind.
