KOOL KIDZ-CORR/PAK 360 SPRINT CARS (23 entries)
The 360 Sprint Car teams were busy with their regularly-scheduled event, plus began their racing portion of the evening by making up the 20 lap A-Feature which was rained out on July 8.

Dylan Westbrook used his pole position earned on July 8 to lead every lap of the makeup A-Feature, although Dave Dykstra did his best to get through traffic and keep the leader in sight. Westbrook was able to stay up front and claim his second consecutive Ohsweken win, while Dykstra settled for the runner-up spot. Alex Hill scored her first ever 360 Sprint Car podium finish, while Jake Brown and Dain Naida rounded out the top five.

Ryan Turner led the first lap of the regularly-scheduled A-Feature, but Jim Huppunen quickly took the lead and led the remaining 19 laps. Paulie Colagiovanni looked to be mounting a challenge for the lead early in the race, but his momentum was broken when he scraped the backstretch wall in traffic. The win was the Huppunen’s first since 2013, while Mitch Brown moved up to take a runner-up finish, followed by Colagiovanni, Glenn Styres, and 14th starter Dave Dykstra.

Mitch Brown continues to lead the championship standings, but the rest of the top five was shaken up. Rookie of the Year candidate Dylan Westbrook is now 40 points behind Brown and 2nd overall, while Dave Dykstra is just 1 point behind Westbrook.

AFFORDABLE TOWING & RECOVERY THUNDER STOCKS (29 entries)
Jim Lampman drove from the 10th row to take over the lead of the Thunder Stock A-Feature on lap 7 and go on to take the win. Championship contenders Karl Sault and Ryan Dinning looked to challenge Lampman for the win, but their efforts were derailed when Sault got sideways and collected Dinning in turn two.

Dale Gyokery took the runner-up finish, followed by Steve Hess, Bryce Richardson, and Ken Sargent. Sault recovered to finish 6th, while Dinning finished 8th, with fellow title contender Dave Bailey sandwiched in between.

Karl Sault took over the championship points lead, but he’s just 3 points ahead of Ryan Dinning, and 9 points ahead of defending champ Dave Bailey. Jason Lungaro had a tough night and slipped to 7th overall in the standings, but continues to lead the Rookie of the Year chase.

HRW AUTOMOTIVE MINI STOCKS (38 entries)
The Mini Stock A-Feature was again a heart-breaker for Patrick Abrahamsson, who led the first 12 laps before his right front wheel broke off. Brandon Crumbie had driven from 21st to 2nd, and put himself in position to be the beneficiary off the leader’s bad luck. Crumbie went on to claim his second win of the season, followed by Aaron Rewutzsky, Nick Sarantakos, Mark Bazuin, and Brandon Janssens, but Sarantakos was scored last due to a post-race incident.

The championship standings got very close, as Rookie of the Year candidate Brandon Crumbie has wedged himself in between the Janssens brothers. Brandon Janssens leads by 1 point over Crumbie, while Jon Janssens had problems on Friday and fell to third, 30 points behind his brother.

GALE’S AUTO AFTERMARKET BOMBERS (16 entries)
Dustin Longboat drove through the field and benefited from some good luck to claim his second win of the season. Jake Maas slid through the infield early in the race and inadvertently advanced his position as he looked for a same re-entry to the track surface. He was penalized two positions during the next caution period and eventually finished third behind his brother Alex and feature winner Longboat. Joey Wilcox and Adam Halbert rounded out the top five. Championship contenders Wayde Thorne and Paul Longboat both had problems and did not finish.

Dustin Longboat took over the championship points lead, and now has an 11 point advantage over Jake Maas. Joey Wilcox remains the Rookie of the Year standings leader.
