He has posted five top fives in the last five races with two wins, so he hopes to keep that momentum going.
 
“I would be lying if I didn’t say I was a little nervous for the race this weekend but still very exciting,” said Tagliani. “It is the point in the championship – the final straightaway and I can’t be prouder of the team and what they have accomplished so far this year. I think the reason I am nervous is there would be nothing that would make me happier than to bring them a championship. A couple of weeks ago I saw the emotion when we won at CTMP after that track has bitten us so many times. I among other would like to see the championship back in the hands of 22 Racing and we would love to put Chevrolet on top as well. The partners who have been with us - EpiPen have been excited and behind us all the way.  My passion for renovation brought us Rona as a sponsor and they have been amazing, Chevrolet 440 Laval for all their support as we drive around the country, Spectra Premium amazing radiators and they keep our engines cool. Certain Teed, thank you & Fast Wheels have been a long-time partner so I say thanks for all their products for contests & giveaways. MPI steering wheels, Jerry Hall design for the great look of our cars and ECC Engineering. Erb Transport who have been partner with the team for a long time. Those beautiful International trucks pulling our trailers across the country get a lot of attention.  Boomers Custom Airbrushing who provided us with the amazing Humboldt Broncos helmet. St Hubert have been a tremendous sponsor and LPB who make the Tag on the Go cookies that are so popular and don’t last long at the track as everyone loves them, they are peanut free to support my severe food allergy. Food Allergy Canada, we have been supporting them through my foundation for a few years now and.  Driven and Linda Jones, she is there for us and makes us look good. She is always cheering us on and behind us for PR and helps with the success the team has had.  It is the time of the year to think of everyone who supports us and the big organization we have and say thank you. I have been to NHMS before but in Indy Car and NASCAR will be a different animal all together. It is a race that could play a big part in our championship battle and that is also why I am a little nervous.”
 
Marc-Antoine Camirand driver of the GM Paille Chevrolet Camaro is coming off his first NASCAR Pinty’s Series win two weeks ago at Autodrome St. Eustache where he and his teammates ran up front all night long just missing out on a 1-2-3 finish.  Camirand known for his road course racing skills put on a clinic on how to win on a tough short track, leading the most laps and holding off charges from teammate Tagliani and others.
 
“After a strong result with my first victory at St. Eustache, all of my 22 Racing crew are very pumped up to race at New Hampshire Motor Speedway," said Camirand. "It is a new track for a lot of us and will be a challenge for me and the team but I’m very positive to do well there. Everyone knows now that we can win on oval tracks too and we look forward to racing for another win.”
 
Donald Theetge pilot of the #24 Mercedes-Benz St Nicolas/Circuit Acura Camaro has some experience at New Hampshire Motor Speedway in other racing series.  Coming off a top 5 finish at Autodrome St Eustache, Theetge is looking for that second win of the season that has just been outside his grasp a few times this year.
 
“I’m sure we are going to have a good weekend at Loudon," said Theetge. "I do know the track from past races in ACT and the NASCAR Xfinity Series and I know 22 Racing will give me another good car like always, so we hope to be challenging for the win in the 100 lap race."

« Last post by CanadianRacingOnline on September 20, 2018, 08:52:04 AM »
Flamboro Speedway – September 15, 2018 Recap


With the champions set to be crowned soon at Flamboro Speedway, every single point matters and that is showing in the racing fans are witnessing each weekend this month.

Lucas Oil Sportsman Cup Series

When it came time for qualifying, Chad McGlynn set the fastest time at 16.128 seconds ahead of Kevin Gallant (16.226), Kevin Allen (16.447), Tim Tolton (16.511), and Jaeger McMaster (16.519).

The feature would see lots of action from start to finish as the drivers battled hard throughout the 100 laps. There would be some incidents on-track, as well as some mechanical failures, but the fans couldn’t say that they weren’t entertained.

Stu Robinson Jr., who started the event in third following the re-draw, would make his way to the front, scoring the feature victory. Kevin Allen finished second, and was crowned the 2018 Lucas Oil Sportsman Cup Series Champion. Brent Wheller finished third, followed by Tim Tolton, Jaeger McMaster, Joe Trafford, Mike Hrynuik Jr., and Kevin Trevellin.

Bob Merrifield was the first driver to not finish the event, ranked 10th, followed by Bob Schultheiss, Doug Cathcart, Scott Laporte, Chad McGlynn, Alvin McNicol, Adam Martin, Barndon Huras, and Kevin Gallant.

Lucas Oil Can-Am Midgets

Adrian Stahle would score the victory in the first feature ahead of Brandon Aavarella, Steve Murdock, Ryan Fraser, Cassidy March, Mark Schultz, Dominique Smith, Cory Whittam, Dave Miller, Luc Munsie, Darren Dryden, and Bob Bailey, while Tim Kovacs failed to finish.

Cory Whittam used his starting spot to his advantage to score the win in the second feature, while Stahle made his way through the field for a runner-up. Zavarella finished third, followed by Dryden, Murdock, Fraser, Munsie, Smith, March, Miller, Schultz, and Bailey, as Kovacs once again failed to finish.

Klotz Engine Repair & Machine Shop Mini Stocks

Wayde Thorne finished second, followed by Rodney Rutherford, Erik Della Riva, Shawn Taylor, Kyle Istead, Rich Schwartzenburg, David Gallinger, Jonathan Ayrton, Kyle DaSilva, Mike Gilmour, Wendy Adams, Mike Hooper, and Mark Klotz.

Rutherford and Schwartzenburg would fail to finish, while Lewis and Wallace failed to take the green flag.

Miller failed to take the green flag, while Mark Thorne was disqualified for inappropriate behavior.

ACT / Former ARCA Champion Mitchell Officially Enters Milk Bowl
« Last post by CanadianRacingOnline on September 20, 2018, 08:51:18 AM »
Former ARCA Champion Mitchell Officially Enters Milk Bowl
 

Barre, VT – This year, the thirst for victory in the Milk Bowl will extend far beyond the Northeast. West Des Moines, Iowa’s Mason Mitchell, the 2014 ARCA Racing Series Champion, has officially entered the 56th Vermont Milk Bowl presented by Northfield Savings Bank and will look to bring the famed milk can trophy back to the heartland.

 

Mitchell will make his debut on the Barre high banks in the prestigious event on Saturday, September 29 and Sunday, September 30 as first reported by Speed51.com. He will drive a car owned by 7-time White Mountain Motorsports Park Late Model Champion Quinny Welch and prepared by Crazy Horse Racing, a premier American-Canadian Tour (ACT) chassis builder based in South Paris, Maine.

 

The 24-year-old has become familiar with Thunder Road through his own interest in short track racing and his friendship with Austin Theriault, the 2017 ARCA Champion and a former ACT competitor. He said he started talking about entering the event months ago, but admitted “your answer is as good as mine” as to how the idea came about.

 

“I’ve known of the track for a long time, and I know it’s a special race that’s coming up,” Mitchell said. “And with my current situation, I thought, ‘Heck, why not? Let put something together.’ It’s going to be totally random, but I’m looking forward to it.”

 

In addition to being his first visit to Thunder Road, the Milk Bowl will also be Mitchell’s first time behind the wheel of an ACT Late Model. He has been doing his homework on both the cars and the track in preparation for his debut.

 

“I’ve been watching film as much as I can and taking notes,” he said. “I’ve been talking to a few local drivers that have been more than helpful with any questions I’ve had. The team I’m running for obviously has a lot of experience, so I’m leaning on those guys as much as I can to help me get up to speed as soon as I can. I’ve just been using all of the friends and resources I can to help me learn.”

 

“The track and the competitors are no slouches,” Mitchell added. “I have huge respect for everybody who races the event and for the guys who race weekly there. The track looks like a blast to drive. It’s a short track, but it looks like it you have to have a lot of discipline, or it can come out and bite you. It puts on some great races – I’ve watched a ton of video on YouTube. And it’s great to see how the fans come out and support it. You don’t see that (in short track racing) as much as you used to. It’s cool to see that interaction.”

 

For Mitchell, the event is also the first major step in getting back to what he loves about racing. Since winning the ARCA championship, Mitchell had competed on an increasingly sporadic basis behind the wheel while running his Mason Mitchell Motorsports team. Mitchell elected to shut the team down this past July and is looking forward to just enjoying racing at Milk Bowl Weekend.


 

“It might seem like a negative, but (shutting down my team) was actually a positive for me,” Mitchell said. “It’s allowing me to regroup and refocus so I can get myself behind the wheel. With the situation I was in with my team, we had a lot of success, but I wasn’t able to drive. And the reason I got involved with racing was so I could be driving and enjoy it, and I just wasn’t enjoying it doing what I was doing. So I decided to shut my team down and regroup and get back behind the wheel. This is really the first opportunity I’ve had and position I’ve been able to put myself in to get to racing again.”

 

“This sounds crazy, but I haven’t been this excited to go a race track and race probably since my ARCA debut,” he continued. “It’s more than just going to a race for me. It’s the whole element of going up there, racing for a team, enjoying myself, and being able to focus on just one thing, and that’s doing the best job I can possibly do for the team and for the people that helped me put this whole deal together. For all the years that I raced ARCA – except for when I first started – I was always racing for myself. When you’re doing that, the ups are probably more enjoyable than anything you can ever do in life, but the downs are just an awful experience, and you’ve got so much on your plate to deal with all the time. It’s way more than just focusing on racing. You’ve got to do so much more, so it takes a lot of the fun out of it. This is just so much more fun. We’ve been working on this for a long time, we’ve known we’ve been wanting to do the event for a while, and we put it together a long time ago. I’ve been so anxious, pumped up, and excited to do this race for months now, and it’s right around the corner.”

 

Mitchell’s quest to take home the 56th Vermont Milk Bowl begins with Booth Bros./H.P. Hood Qualifying Day on Saturday, September 29 at 1:00pm. The Maplewood/Irving Oil Late Models will set the first 22 spots on the 26-car starting grid with Time Trials and 50-lap qualifying races to help set the 26-car starting field. Sunday, September 30 will see the Last Chance “B” Feature at 12:15pm followed by Milk Bowl Opening Ceremonies at 1:00pm. The Lenny’s Shoe & Apparel Flying Tigers, Allen Lumber Street Stocks, and New England Dwarf Cars are also on the schedule for both Saturday and Sunday.

 

Adult admission for the 56th Vermont Milk Bowl is $30 for a 2-day Saturday/Sunday ticket and $10 for Saturday only. Kids age 12 and under will be admitted free on both days. The front gates open at 10:00am on Saturday and Sunday.

APPLEFEST SHOOTOUT WEEKEND LESS THAN A WEEK AWAY FOR ONE OF THE BIGGEST EVENTS OF 2018

BRIGHTON, Ont. – The 51st season at Brighton Speedway has sped by faster than the competition on the track. Although only one weekend of dirt racing remains on the schedule it certainly is a case of ‘saving the best for last’. Cool 100 presents the 14th Annual Applefest Shootout Weekend along with Lucas Oil Products, Coca-Cola, VP Fuels and Image Factor Media.  The action packed two-night program runs Friday, September 21st and Saturday, September 22nd.

The excitement begins on Friday night at 7:00 PM as the DIRTcar Sportsman Series will compete in their first night of back to back series events. Friday will also feature the first of two nights for the Northeast Late Model Alliance as well as a special Comp 4 / Mini Stocks event.  Thunder Stocks will get a warm up for their Saturday night 50 lap event and Friday will mark the second visit of the season by the Eastern Ontario Vintage Stock Car Club.

An exciting ALL NEW format is on tap for Saturday.  New this year heats and time trials will begin at 3:00 PM in the afternoon.  After all the heats are complete the speedway will take a short break for track rework as well as redraws for all five divisions will take place in the court yard at 6:00 PM.  Then at 7:00 PM the real action that will include 235 Feature laps will take to the track!  “This new format will allow us to run through the races at a reasonable pace well taking the appropriate time to celebrate the great event that this is. In the past we have had to rush through the events and haven’t event been able to have proper victory lane ceremonies due to time constraints and this will not be an issue with the new start time” states track promoter Mark Rinaldi. 

Saturday will feature the return of the DIRTcar 358 Modifieds as they compete in the $5,000 to win, 75 lap Applefest Shootout. The Northeast Late Model Alliance will return for the 50 lap Great Crate Race. The winner of that event will walk away with $4,000. Saturday will also include three $1,000 to win races as DIRTcar Sportsman Series will return along with the finale for the Insta Insulation  Duel on the Dirt Thunder Stock Series and the Canadian Modified/UMP Modified Showdown.

Six drivers have etched their name in the DIRTcar 358 Modified portion of the Applefest Shootout history books. Mat Williamson won his first Applefest Shootout in 2017 and dethroned the events only three time winner Eric Rudolph (2014, 2015, 2016). Two drivers have won the event twice, including Mario Clair (2007, 2013) and Pete Bicknell (2008, 2010). Kyle Dingwall won the inaugural event in 2005 and Tim O’Brien picked up a victory in 2011. The race was rained out in 2006, 2009 and 2012.

Brent Begolo and Johnathan Ferguson picked up their first Applefest basket of apples in 2017 winning on Friday and Saturday night respectively.  Combined there have been eleven different drivers that have won the DIRTcar Sportsman part of the event. Cody McPherson (2012, 2016) and Gary Lindberg (2014, 2015) are the only two drivers to have won twice. In addition to the 2017 winners, six different drivers including Martin Pelletier (2016), Shane Pecore (2013), Chris Herbison (2010), Nic Cupolo (2009), James Michael Friesen (2008) and Mark D’Ilario (2007) also have a single win in the Sportsman race at Applefest.

The Great Crate Race has seen four different winners over the first six editions of the race. Charlie Sanderock is the most recent winner and has managed to claim the checkers three years in a row (2015, 2016, 2017) and has not lost yet this season in the combined NLMA events picking up the most recent win back in August at the Cornwall Motor speedway.  Dale Caswell of West Monroe, NY is the only other repeat winner with back-to-back wins in 2013 and 2014 and will be on hand to try and de-throne Sandercock in the 2018 running of the event.  Lee Gill of Lafargeville, NY won the inaugural race in 2011 while Chuck Meyers claimed the victory in 2012.

Travis McLean Survives Sunset Chaos for Top-10 Finish
INNISFIL, Ontario — Despite the high temperatures and contact on track causing trouble for his competitors, Travis McLean made his way through the chaos for a top-10 finish on Sunday at Sunset Speedway.

McLean started off the afternoon by placing eighth and ninth in his pair of qualifying heats.

Starting 14th for the 50-lap feature, he dropped back a spot in the opening laps, but avoided a pair of incidents to crack the top-10 as of Lap 18. Restarting 10th with 32 laps to go, he’d remain there through the middle portion of the feature, trying to find the quick way around the oval. Unfortunately, he would get sideways off of turn four on Lap 38, going around for a quick spin for the race’s sixth caution. Restarting from the tail of the field, he would battle hard through the final laps, crossing the finish line in eighth. Notably, that marks his fifth consecutive top-10 finish.

Ryan Semple Sees Strong Run Spoiled at Sunset Speedway
INNISFIL, Ontario — Finding the familiar speed back in the No. 64, Ryan Semple was working his way to the front on Sunday afternoon at Sunset Speedway when contact would see his afternoon end early.

The team would elect to race at Sunset Speedway on Saturday night as part of the track’s championship festivities, finishing second and eighth in the qualifying heats.

Starting fifth for the 50-lap feature, he would move up to fourth on the initial start, remaining there until the first caution came out on Lap 2 for an incident in turns three and four. He’d remain in third until Lap 7, getting up alongside Dustyn Mombourquette for second. He would take the spot four laps later, moving up into the runner-up position. Through the rest of the feature, he would work at chasing down the eventual feature winner Dan Archibald, but was unable to make up the ground. In the progress, though, he held off all challenges from behind him, crossing the finish line with a second-place finish.

On Sunday, he was once again fast in qualifying, finishing third and second in his pair of heats. Starting eighth for the 50-lap feature, he began to make up ground immediately, moving into the sixth position on Lap 5. Following a quick caution with 43 laps to go, he moved up into fourth, challenging Ken Grubb and passing him for third on Lap 12. Following another yellow flag at Lap 15 for an incident, he would battle side-by-side for second with Gerrit Tiemersma. The battle wouldn’t go smoothly there either, as contact entering turn three sent Semple around, leaving Carson Nagy nowhere to go as he made significant contact with Semple, ending both of their races early.

Ethan Constable Caught up in Crash at Sunset Speedway
INNISFIL, Ontario — After entering the night with high hopes following a couple back-to-back strong runs, Ethan Constable’s night ended early on Saturday at Sunset Speedway.

The night didn’t start off smoothly, with Constable running into issues during the first qualifying race. He would then bounce back for a fourth-place finish in the second heat.

Starting 15th for the feature, he would look set to make up ground early, though a car would go around for a spin ahead of him on Lap 2, leaving him nowhere to go. As a result, the No. 11 Super Stock would suffer heavy front end damage, ending Constable’s night early.

The team immediately went to work in the shop to fix the damage sustained, with hopes of scoring another strong finish their next time out. Constable had entered the night following a pair of podium finishes, with eight top-10’s on the scoreboard for the 2018 campaign.

Constable is proud to be supported by Lefroy Plumbing, Innisfil Garage Doors, Pumpmytank.ca, RTI Equipment Solutions, Sturdy Power Lines, and Mr. Auto Service.

INNISFIL, Ontario — The KDR Motorsports team will enter the off-season with smiles on their faces after Ron Quesnelle ended the season with his 10th consecutive top-five finish.
