Jordan Hanna Scores Eighth Feature Victory at Sauble Speedway

Jordan Hanna has been on a terror this season, and that continued this past weekend at Sauble Speedway as he scored his eighth feature victory of 2017 on Saturday night.

Daniel Hawn won the first heat for his fourth of the season ahead of Craig Pitchell, Cassidy Marsh, Steve Belfry, Shawn Stanley, Ted Greenwood, and Gary Triska.

Jordan Hanna won the second qualifier for his seventh of the season ahead of James Stanley, Brent Kemps, Rob Summers, James Marche, and Brody Rickwood.

Jordan went for the daily double in the third heat ahead of Hawn, Pitchell, Summers, Rickwood, Shawn Stanley, and Greenwood.

Cassidy Marsh won the fourth qualifier for his first heat victory of 2017 ahead of Kemps, James Stanley, Belfry, Marche, and Triska.

Come feature time, Brent Kemps led the first two laps off of the pole, before Daniel Hawn made his way to the lead after starting fifth. He’d go on to lead the next 11 laps, before being chased down for the top spot.

Jordan Hanna then made his move, leading the next 12 laps en route to his eighth feature victory of 2017. Notably, Hanna has only failed to win one main event this season (Peterborough Race 2), just missing it though with a runner-up. 

Daniel Hawn finished second for his eighth top-five of 2017, followed by Craig Pitchell in third to tie his season-best. James Stanley placed fourth for his third top-five of the year, with James Marche in fifth for a second straight top-five.

Brody Rickwood finished sixth for his ninth top-10, followed by Brent Kemps in seventh for his sixth straight top-10. Rob Summers placed eighth for his seventh top-10 of the year, with Steve Belfry in ninth for his fifth top-10 of 2017. Shawn Stanley finished 10th for his third top-10 of the season.

Gary Triska finished 11th, followed by Ted Greenwood and Cassidy Marsh.

The OSCAAR Pro Midgets are back in action this weekend on Saturday, August 26 at Flamboro Speedway for their 10th race of the season.

Tim Kerr Claims Pair of Heat Wins and Top-10 Over Roller Coaster Weekend

PICTON, Ont. – August 23, 2017 – Tim Kerr had a roller coaster weekend to say the least, but persevered through plenty of adversity to earn a pair of heat race wins and a top-10 finish at Fulton Speedway on Saturday night.
 
Kerr began his weekend at his Friday night home of Brewerton Speedway. After winning his heat, Kerr started inside the top-10 and was battling for position in the top-five. However, contact with Chris Hile on an early restart led to a big accident and heavy damage to the right side of the car.
 
“From my eyes, it was kind of the both of us at fault,” Kerr said of the incident. “Maybe I was a little too low and I spun the wheels and he got in front of me a little bit.”
 
“A lot of the damage was just body work, cosmetic and sheet metal stuff,” Kerr explained. “There was a shock and a header too, but we got the car back moving. I don’t know if we looked worse, but we got away pretty lucky.”
 
Between Kerr’s dedicated No.07 crew and the help of Sportsman driver Chris Cunningham’s team, they were able to make enough repairs so Kerr could run the second Feature scheduled for the night.
 
“I was ready to pack up, but between my guys and the Cunninghams they wanted to fix it so I let them have at it,” Kerr said. “When I saw 15 or 20 people around the car, I got back in the mood and jumped in it. It wasn’t terrible for what it looked like. It looked like it had just come out of a crusher.”
 
Some help from a number of crewmembers and Zach Aubertine of Zero3 Motorsports to supply some new body panels helped the team hit the track again Saturday night at Fulton. Kerr managed to win another heat race. Then in the Feature, he led several early laps before claiming a seventh-place finish.
 
“We had a really good car early,” Kerr said. “I think we’re finally getting some stuff turned around. The car’s been driving really well. We faded back Saturday night, but we got some speed back in it. We led almost half of Saturday night’s race and that was kind of a morale boost to let everybody to know we can still do it.”
 
While Friday’s wreck was certainly not the way Kerr wanted to start the weekend, the improvements in the way the car was running certainly helped bring back some of the fun the team had been missing.
 
“Things were turning around and everybody was smiling,” Kerr said. “The wreck took the wind out of our sails a little bit, but everybody carried on. I’m thankful to have my crew, sponsors, family and everybody else behind me to keep pushing.”
 
Kerr will be back in action at both Brewerton and Fulton this weekend. For additional event information on either track, visit www.fultonspeedway.com.

Eastern Ontario Legends Series Books a Date at Peterborough Speedway

By Jim Clarke, Clarke Motorsports Communications/First Draft Media

 

They’ve been on the road for almost a month, but the drivers and teams with the Trailers Plus Eastern Ontario Legends Series are ready to make their final regular season appearance of the year – Saturday, August 26th – at Peterborough Speedway. Officials say that the tour has been everything they could have hoped for from the inaugural schedule.

 

“We’ve had some amazing racing and brought some new teams into the fold,” said Jeff Drimmie – who along with Andrew McFadden, Geordie Ledson and Kevin Foisy – works to keep the EOLS journey rolling. “Car counts have been very strong at every event, with fans and track promoters very excited about the brand we’re building.”

 

Drimmie points to the National Qualifiers – awarding guaranteed starting spots for the U.S. Legends Asphalt Nationals at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway – as glowing examples of the success of the series. Each show brought starting line-ups in the mid 20’s to chase the prestigious honour.

 

The Saturday, August 26th event at Peterborough Speedway is a homecoming of sorts for the Trailers Plus Eastern Ontario Legends Series. 7 of this year’s 15 shows are part of the regular season schedule at the venue known as Canada’s Toughest 3rd of a Mile Paved Oval. The tour will also be part of the annual Autumn Colours Classic for the second year in a row.

 

This weekend, pit gates will open at 3:00 with general admission grandstands unlocked at 5:00. Racing gets underway at 6:00.

By Clayton Johns

The event also features Ohsweken’s own Kool Kidz-Corr/Pak 360 Sprint Cars is a $3,000-to-win special event. The Go Nuclear Late Model Series make their season debut in a $2,000-to-win showdown in the Series third visit. To Ohsweken.
 
The Triple Crown Showdown offers a unique opportunity to both fans and drivers. Fans have the chance to see three of the most popular forms of dirt track cars on the same night at the same track. Meanwhile drivers will be battling for a massive $25,000 prize if a single driver can win all three Features or a $5,000 bonus if any driver can win two Features on the same night.
 
NASCAR Camping World Truck Series and Super DIRTcar Series star Stewart Friesen will have his Eldora Dirt Derby NASCAR Truck on display. Fans will be able to see the truck Friesen drove in a dominating performance and second-place finish at Eldora Speedway last month up close and in person.

Super DIRTcar Series Big-Block Modifieds
The Super DIRTcar Series last visited Ohsweken in 2015 for the inaugural Triple Crown Showdown. Chad Brachmann of Sanborn, NY upset the talented cast of Super DIRTcar Series regulars for his first career win with the Series in the 75-lap affair. Brachmann came from 11th to score the victory over Dale Planck and reigning Super DIRTcar Series champion Matt Sheppard. 
 
Entering Thursday’s race, the Series has been off since it last competed at nearby Merrittville Speedway on August 9 when Sheppard extended his winning streak to four races.

Go Nuclear Late Models
The Go Nuclear Late Models make their third visit to Ohsweken at the Triple Crown Showdown to kickoff their four-race 2017 schedule. The Series was also a part of the inaugural Triple Crown Showdown on June 30, 2015 when Darren Peters held off Charlie Sandercock for the victory.
