Team Turner Racing Claims Three Top-Fives, Five Top-10s Over Doubleheader Weekend
 
 
CAISTOR CENTRE, Ont. – June 18, 2018 – A busy doubleheader weekend saw Team Turner Racing achieve its most successful week of the season as the three drivers drove to a combined three top-five finishes and five top-10 results during action at Ohsweken Speedway on Friday, June 15 and at Brighton Speedway on Saturday, June 16 with the Southern Ontario Sprints.
 
Cory Turner led the way for the team as he earned his first win of the season on Friday before a third-place finish on Saturday. Ryan Turner was in the wrong place at the wrong time Friday night and involved in an incident, but rebounded for a fourth-place finish on Saturday. Jamie Turner earned a pair of top-10s with ninth and 10th-place finishes.
 
“I was glad to see Cory win and Ryan had a pretty good weekend,” Jamie said. “Everything’s in one piece on Monday, so it’s good.”
 
Cory Turner
 
On Friday, Cory made it into the redraw by driving from seventh to fifth in his heat race, where he grabbed the eighth starting position for his KT Tobacco/Silo Wireless No.97. He raced forward immediately to fourth and then battled Jim Huppunen for second following the final caution at lap 12 before tracking down leader Tyler Hendricks on the final lap.
 
“We were good and I got into a slider war with Jimmy Huppunen and I finally cleared him with two to go,” Cory said. “Hendricks had 20 car lengths on me and I ran him down pretty good, and then he hit the outside wall. I drove hard into one and let the car go up to the top and then railed the top in turns three and four and we won.”
 
The win was the third of Cory’s career in a 360 Sprint Car and second at Ohsweken. None of the team had much time to celebrate as they returned home to prepare for Saturday’s race at Brighton.
 
Saturday, Cory qualified for the redraw with a third-place finish in his heat and pulled the seventh starting spot for the main event. He quickly raced forward to fourth and then tracked down Kyle Fraser for second just after halfway after also getting past Jake Brown. He eventually fell back to third after a tough race with Dylan Westbrook in lapped traffic during the caution-free race.
 
“We were good again and I was really happy with the car,” Cory said. “We got to the front on the bottom and I kind of stayed down there. I needed to go rip the cushion because it was good late in the race. It was a really good racetrack that was smooth right to the cushion.”
 
Ryan Turner
 
Ryan Turner had another strong weekend. On Friday night while battling Mikey Kruchka for fifth, Kruchka drove off the track in turn three and came back down right in front of Ryan, leaving him with nowhere to go.
 
“On lap 12, I saw Kruchka go over the top and I went down to the middle because I figured he would be coming back on the track and all of the sudden he appeared right in front of me,” Ryan said. “I hit his driver side door and it knocked the front end out of our car. I think we definitely had a top three car.”
 
After making repairs overnight, Ryan drove to a second-place finish in his heat to qualify for the Dash for Cash.
 
 “We felt good in the heat,” Ryan said. “We only had a one lane racecar in the heat, so we knew we needed to make some adjustments and the dash played into our favour. I got to try a couple of things I wouldn’t normally do. We looked at the video and we made a couple more changes between the dash and the feature.”
 
The changes worked. Ryan initially fell back to 12th, but then raced his way forward to a fourth-place finish in the non-stop race.
 
“We started off slow and went back to about 12th until I found my rhythm on the bottom and we started picking off cars,” Ryan recalled. “We were a fast car at the end. I needed to find the bottom sooner and we needed a late caution to give the top three a run.”
 
Despite Friday’s wreck, Ryan is happy with how thing’s have continued to improve in his Kingpin Farms/Burger Barn No.91 car.
 
“We were happy with the car every time it hit the track,” Ryan said. “We’re just fine tuning things now, I feel. This week we’re not going to make many adjustments at the shop. We’re going to make the small adjustments and see how they work.”
 
Jamie Turner
 
Jamie Turner had his best weekend of the season in the Charlie Bee Honey No.11. Jamie grabbed a ninth-place finish on Friday night an a 10th-place result Saturday, his best finishes of the season to date as he continues to fine tune his car.
 
“I felt better than I have, so I feel like the car’s going in the right direction,” Jamie said. “I’ve struggled, but we just keep working at it.”
 
Jamie will be able to get more seat time over the next two weekends with a pair of doubleheaders on the schedule as the team plans to race at Ohsweken and Merrittville speedways each of the next two Fridays and Saturdays, respectively.
 
“We’re in the middle of June, but I haven’t raced that much and it’s nice to get some races in finally,” Jamie said. “My car’s starting to feel like it’s starting to set in. Now we just have to try and make some more gains on it.”
 
“Merrittville’s always been a bit of a hometrack race for us because we grew up watching my grandpa Don and my dad race there,” Ryan said. “We have a lot of laps around there in the Thunder Stock and Sportsman days, so that definitely helps you in a faster car.”
 
Up Next
 
All three Team Turner Racing cars will be back in action on Friday, June 22 at Ohsweken Speedway and plan to compete again on Saturday, June 23 with the Southern Ontario Sprints at Merrittville Speedway. For more information on Team Turner Racing, visit www.TeamTurnerRacing.ca.

Southern Ontario Sprints: Dylan Westbrook Steals SOS Season Opening Win From Mitch Brown at Brighton

By Clayton Johns


BRIGHTON, Ont. (June 16, 2018) – Dylan Westbrook ran down Mitch Brown in lapped traffic and passed him on lap 24 before leading the final two laps to secure victory in a non-stop Southern Ontario Sprints season opener at Brighton Speedway on Saturday night.


 

Brown and Kyle Fraser started on the front row for the 25-lap feature with Brown jumping out to an early lead aboard his familiar blue No.10. Third-starting Jake Brown tried to take second from Fraser in the early laps, but stuck to third while seventh-starting Cory Turner raced forward to fourth over the opening two laps and Westbrook followed closely behind into the top-five.

 

By lap five, Mitch Brown had already found his way into lapped traffic and had opened a 10 car-length lead over Fraser. As Brown navigated the slower cars, Turner tracked down Fraser and made the pass for second on lap 10 with Westbrook following him through the open hole to take third.

 

At the halfway mark, Mitch Brown held a half straightaway lead over Turner and Westbrook, who were nose to tail for the second spot. Brown worked the bottom groove of the speedway whenever he could in traffic while Turner and Westbrook preferred the top against a very thin cushion. On lap 17, Westbrook’s momentum in the outside lane propelled him to second in turn two just as Turner was forced to let off the gas to avoid collision with a slower car.

 

Two laps later, Westbrook had erased Brown’s lead and on lap 19 the two drivers were side-by-side for the race lead with a pair of lapped cars battling in the same fashion just in front. Westbrook took the outside lane to the lead in turn two, but Brown threaded the needle back through the lapped cars to retain the point at the start-finish line.

 

With two laps remaining, Westbrook was back in the outside lane and had the preferred track position as Brown was forced behind a lapped car and surrendered the lead on the backstretch. With less than two laps to go, Brown ran out of time to rebuild his momentum for a final run at Westbrook and settled for second. Cory Turner earned a third-place finish to round out the podium.

 

Ryan Turner made some late passes to earn a fourth-place finish while former series champion Chris Jones completed the top-five. Jake Brown, Fraser, Steve Lyons, Warren Mahoney and Jamie Turner made-up the top-10.

 

Mitch Brown, Steve Lyons and Kyle Fraser won qualifying heat races while Mitch Brown also picked up the Dash for Cash win presented by Docks R Us and 4 Points Sheraton hotel.

 

The Southern Ontario Sprints continue their 2018 season next Saturday, June 23 at Merrittville Speedway in Thorold, Ont. Race time is 7:00pm. For additional event information, visit www.merrittvillespeedway.com.

MACNEILL MASTERS MINI CUP FIELD IN BYRNE PLUMBING 20

 

(OYSTER BED BRIDGE, PE - June 18th, 2018) - The driver they call “Old Man” took it to the field on Saturday night to win his first Eastern Super Mini Cup Series feature at Oyster Bed Speedway.

 

Donnie “Old Man” MacNeill took home the win in the Byrne Plumbing 20 on Saturday night at his home track. MacNeill, who is known on Prince Edward Island for his Street Stock accomplishments among other accolades in his racing career, outlasted the field on a green-white-checkered finish.

 

Kirk Sheasgreen (Miramichi, NB), who battled early in the race for the lead with Chad Jackson (Montague, PE), put MacNeill and the No. 19 to the test during the final two laps to the finish. The Eastern Super Mini Cup Series veteran would wind up second with his No. 40 car with rookie Jacob Dunlop (Hampton, PE) joining Sheasgreen and MacNeill on the podium. For Dunlop, it was his second top three finish with the Series in as many races.

 

Mark Ferguson (Saint John, NB) won the heat race and semi but a spin during the Byrne Plumbing 20 put him behind and would wind up sixth on the evening.

 

The race was halted for an incident between Mike Wood and Jackson. Both drivers were transported to a local hospital following the race. Jackson was checked and released after the wreck while Wood sustained a broken kneecap, successfully had surgery and is expected to be released Monday.

 

The Eastern Super Mini Cup Series would like to thank Byrne Plumbing of Belfast, Prince Edward Island for their race day sponsorship. Marketing opportunities with the Eastern Super Mini Cup Series are available by contacting Kirk Sheasgreen at (506) 210-0437.

Speedway 660 NB / SOPHOMORES SHINE ON SPEEDWAY 660 SATURDAY NIGHT
« Last post by CanadianRacingOnline on June 19, 2018, 09:31:16 AM »
SOPHOMORES SHINE ON SPEEDWAY 660 SATURDAY NIGHT

 

(Geary, NB - June 18th, 2018) - After the dust settled on Saturday night at Speedway 660, it was three sophomore drivers who parked their cars in Riverview Ford Lincoln Victory Lane during Championship Point Racing action.

 

Scott “Bat Hubby” Kennie (Fredericton) scored his first career feature win in the Fredericton Gun Shop Sharp Shooter feature. Kennie had a spirited battle with BJ Gillespie (Nackawic) before Gillespie faded following a late yellow flag. The No. 71 was then pitted with the task of holding off two-time 2018 winner Brody Levesque (Fredericton) for the big win.

 

“Getting our first ever win tonight is huge for this team and something we will always remember,” said Kennie after the race. “We learned a lot in our rookie season and worked hard over the winter to improve our efforts in the shop and at the track.”

 

Levesque was second in the main, followed by Bryan Suttie (Keswick), Gillespie and rookie Randy Titus (French Lake). Gillespie and Allison Hall (Oromocto) took away heat race wins to qualify for the 20-lap feature.

 

The Late Model features were won by two youngsters who are balancing exams and graduations with checkered flags in the month of June.

 

Ryan Messer (Harvey) won a hard fought RE/MAX East Coast Elite Realty Pro Stock feature for his second career win in the class. Messer started on the pole position in the 13-car field and opened a big lead that would evaporate with a caution on Lap 36 of the 50-lap feature. Matt Harris (Fredericton Junction) scored his best finish of this young 2018 season with a second place run while last week’s winner Greg Fahey (St. Stephen) was third on the night. Dave O’Blenis (Boundary Creek) missed the podium for the first time in 2018 with a fourth place finish. Brent Roy (Hanwell) completed the top five.

 

Messer and Harris won Pro Stock heat races.

 

Boundary Creek’s Courtney O’Blenis won her first Martin’s Home Heating Sportsman feature of the season, becoming the fourth different winner in the division in as many races this year. It was not without a fight though as Curtis Collins (Saint John) was able to make ground late in the race and challenged O’Blenis. In the end, the youngest of the O’Blenis racing clan led wire-to-wire in the 40-lap feature.

 

Collins wound up second while Drew Greenlaw (Eastport, ME) continued his consistent season with his fourth straight podium finish. Alexandra O’Blenis (Boundary Creek) finished fourth with “The Old Musket” Richard Atkinson (Geary) coming home fifth. Courtney O’Blenis and Collins took home heat race victories in the 11-car field.

 

Justin Cole (Harvey) capitalized on a restart with three laps to go to win the DMR Auto Sales and Service Street Stock feature in a photo finish. Luc McLaughlin (Geary) led the most laps in the feature prior to a mechanical issue forcing him pit side under the final caution. Cole started on the outside of Riley Goodwin (MacAdam) and was able to best him on the outside by 0.002 seconds.

 

“I started in tenth and made our way through traffic quicker than I thought we would,” said Cole post race. “I figured third would be the farthest we would get but the late race yellow changed that. The last three laps were exciting with hard door to door racing and we were able to get the win!”

 

Goodwin would have to settle for second ahead of Roger Slocum (Chipman), Shawn Hyslop (St. Stephen) and Matt Crocker (Minto). Crocker and Goodwin took home heat race victories.

 

The next event for Speedway 660 is the first extended distance Sportsman race of the season. The Martin’s Home Heating 125 will test man and machine early in the 2018 season to establish supremacy in one of the most competitive weekly divisions around the region. Racing begins at 6:30pm on Saturday, June 23rd.

Aaron Turkey Scores Second Tour Win In Inaugural Action Sprint Tour Stop at Humberstone

PORT COLBORNE, Ont. – (June 17, 2018) – Aaron Turkey took full advantage of his pole starting position led all 20 laps of the Feature event to score his second career Action Sprint Tour powered by RaceRivalz.com win in the series’ inaugural stop at Humberstone Speedway on Saturday night. The Ohsweken, Ont. driver turned in a perfect score card as he won his heat race before selecting the pole in the pre-race redraw and then held off teammate Holly Porter in the main event.

“It’s really cool,” Turkey said of the victory. “I’m shocked I did it on the bottom. I usually like cruising around on the high side, but I’m really glad to get it done.”

Turkey and Porter started on the front row for the 20-lap Feature. The two drivers claimed the front row starting spots via the redraw after winning their respective heat races. Both drivers elected to keep their front row starting spot and declined to take the Durnin Motors Front Row challenge where they would have dropped to the 12th starting spot for a chance at a $500 bonus if they could score the win.

When the green flag dropped, a handful of early cautions slowed the race, including one involving Ryan Hunsinger, who spun in a battle for third and collected point leader Shone Evans, ending his night. Turkey pulled away on the restart, anchoring his car to the bottom lane. Behind him, Porter and local driver Jacob Dykstra of Port Colborne, Ont. raced away from the rest of the pack. Tenth-starting Brad Herron made his move forward despite a collapsed left side board on the top wing of his No.12, racing up to fifth before the third and final caution of the race for a spun Jerry Hill on lap eight.

On the ensuing restart, Turkey was again able to pull ahead of Porter who stayed within striking distance for some time before eventually fading back to a half straightaway deficit while still maintaining a five car-length lead over Dykstra.

“The track got really slick and really technical, but it was a lot of fun,” Porter said following her second-place finish.

Rounding out the top-five was Herron, who earned the night’s hard charger award with a drive from 10th to a fourth-place finish, and youngster Liam Martin in fifth.

The incident to Evans dropped him to second in the championship standings and allowed Jesse Costa, who entered the race second in the standings, to take over the point lead with a seventh-place finish.

The Action Sprint Tour powered by RaceRivalz.com returns to action on Saturday. July 28 with a return appearance to Merrittville Speedway in Thorold, Ontario. Shone Evans won the Series’ first stop there in May. For more information on the Action Sprint Tour, including a full scheduled, points, purses and point fund, visit www.ActionSprintTour.com.

Westbrook wins SOS 23rd season opener at Brighton Speedway


A packed and enthusiastic crowd cheered on the Southern Ontario Sprints Saturday as they kicked their 23rd season of competition into high gear with the first of five appearances at Brighton Speedway.  The night presented by Vanderlaan Building Products Ltd., First Place Trailers and Brighton Recycling saw a total of 22 sprint cars signed in for the opening round of the tour schedule.  The action-packed racing card also featured the Vanderlaan Building Products Ltd. Hotch’s Auto Parts Late Model Triple Crown Race 1, Bainer’s OilGARD Anti Rust Canadian Modified Division and the Brighton Automotive Larry’s Towing Thunder Stock Triple Crown Race 2.

Westbrook wins SOS opening night feature
After two rain outs at Brighton, the Southern Ontario Sprints were eager to hit the 1/3 clay oval track and race fans were just as excited to watch them let loose.  No. 10 Mitch Brown and No. 01 Kyle Fraser started on the front row and led the 22-car field to green in the 25-lap main event. Brown held on to his top position and was dominate for much of the race.  Coming off a win from the night before at Oshweken Speedway No. 97 Cory Turner was eager to taste victory again quickly working from his seventh position past the field into the top five on the 3rd trip around.  Turner and returning champ No. 47x Dylan Westbrook, who started 9th were solid behind the wheel sliding right behind Brown on the 13th lap.  On the 19th time around, Westbrook snagged the lead, leaving Brown and Turner to settle second.  A swift slide off turns three and four by Brown secured his second-place finish with Turner in third, No. 91 Ryan Turner fourth and No. 11J Chris Jones fifth.



Brown bags cash in dash
During the intermission, six teams made up of the top two teams in each heat took to the track for the sprint car dash for cash presented by Docks R Us and Four Points Sheraton.  No.10 Mitch Brown led the field to green and dominated the 10-lap race to victory lane.

Sandercock scores triple crown victory
No. 57 Charlie Sandercock’s fourth win on the season didn’t come easy as a tough field of Vanderlaan Building Products Ltd. Late Models made him work for Hotch’s Auto Parts Triple Crown bragging rights.  No. 98 Craig Graham took the field to green in the 35-lap feature and was unstoppable in his 98 machine for the first 19 laps.  Eventual fourth place finisher, No. 89 Austin King proved to be Graham’s biggest contender early in the race, going head to head with the leader as Sandercock worked by the field from his 11th starting place.  Sandercock took over on the 20th trip around the high side of the 1/3rd mile oval and checked out.  On the same lap the door opened for No. 12 Kyle Sopaz to move into third past King.  With Sandercock now at a straight away lead, Sopaz, Graham and King battled it out for the second position with the No. 12 machine securing runner up.  Graham took home a third, followed by King in forth and Caley Weese who remained strong and consistent in her No.77 to score another fifth place finish. 

King claims first season win

No. 39 Jonah Mutton and No. 14 Brandt Graham started on the front row for the OilGARD Anti-Rust Canadian Modified feature.  Graham jumped to an early lead on the first lap of the 25-lap race.  A decision to take the outside on an 11th lap re-start proved to be an unlucky one for Graham as No. 07 Curtis King bit down on the inside line and took the lead.  Following King through to the front was No. 91 Kraig Handley still hungry for his first win and No. 87 Andrew Hennessy determined to snag five features in a row, King worked hard to put some distance between him and the field but Handley and Hennessy closed in to apply some pressure, King remained unfazed and cruised to victory lane for his first checkered flag of the season and earning the title of Campbellford Chrysler Driver of the Week.  Handley scored his second runner-up badge in as many nights leaving Hennessy to settle for third.  Graham placed fourth with No. 12 Adam Whaley earning a fifth-place finish.

Anderson takes Triple Crown

No. 17 Jeff Humphry took the field to green in the 25-lap Larry’s Towing Triple Crown Race 2 and didn’t let up for 15 laps.  Working his way up from his 10th starting position No. 72 Doug Anderson eventually secured runner-up setting his sights on Humphry.  The pair went door to door with Anderson slipping by and taking the lead on lap 16.  Humphry was unable to keep the pace as Anderson pulled away.  A caution on the 21st lap seemed to even the playing field for No. 03 Justin Ramsay and No. 53 Wade Purchase who drove hard from mid-pack resting behind the leader.  Anderson put the hammer down and drove to his second season win.  Purchase solidified runner-up spot with Ramsay in third, No. 85 Austin Reid fourth and Humphry held on to earn fifth.

NEXT WEEK AT BRIGHTON:
Read’s Accounting presents the Gerow Propane Summer Smash Monster Truck Extravaganza featuring Overkill Evolution and Black Stallion plus a complete race program featuring the Bainer’s OilGARD Anti Rust ABC Taxi Canadian Modified Triple Crown Race 2, the Brighto Automotive Thunder Stocks, the Bill’s Johns Comp 4 and the Quinte Septic Stingers.  The Late Models have the weekend off to enjoy the show.  Advanced tickets are available by contacting the Speedway Office at 613.475.1102 or stopping in during office hours.

THEETGE STARTS ON FRONT ROW AT JUKASA MOTOR SPEEDWAY
 
 
 

 
 
THEETGE STARTS ON FRONT ROW AT JUKASA
 
June 17, 2018:  Donald Theetge driver of the #24 Mercedes-Benz St Nicolas/Circuit Acura Chevrolet Camaro started the Rankin Construction 200 on the outside of row one.  Theetge was looking forward to the first oval event of the year in the NASCAR Pintys Series and especially at the track where he narrowly missed getting his first win in the series last year.
 
During the practice session, Theetge was quick right from the start in his #24 entry.  He would end the session with the second quickest time which he backed up during qualifying with another second-place time.
 
While initially falling back to fourth in the 200-lap race, Theetge settled into a rhythm and made quick work of the competition in front of him.  By lap 22 he was again in the second position, but the cars handling started going away and he fell back several positions before the competition caution at lap 75.  He ducked into the pits and the team went to work making some adjustments.  After restarting near the rear of the field Theetge again started picking off the cars in front of him. On lap 95 while running in the top three the  #24 Camaro experienced a cut right front tire and Theetge scrubbed the wall.  Unfortunately, too much front end damage was done for him to continue and he was credited with a 16th place finish.
 
“I knew we could run up front here after last year,” said Theetge after the race.  “so this is a huge disappointment for our entire team.  We had a good car all day and after the crew made adjustments on the pit stop we were fast again.  I thought we had a good chance at a top three finish."
 
The Rankin Construction 200 will air on Saturday June 23rd at 2 p.m. on TSN 2 and on RDS2 on Tuesday, July 3 at 10:30 p.m.

Next on the schedule for the Donald Theetge #24 Mercdes-Benz St. Nicolas/Circuit Acura team is Autodrome Chaudiere on Saturday June 30th.  In two previous NASCAR Pintys Series starts here Theetge has one pole and two top five finishes.

CAMIRAND SEALS A STRONG FOURTH PLACE FINISH

NASCAR Pinty’s series —Jukasa Motor Speedway

 

Hagersville, ON, June 17, 2018 — Marc-Antoine Camirand secured a fourth-place finish as he was back on track at Jukasa Motor Speedway for the first race on ovals this season in the NASCAR Pinty’s series. The driver of the GM Paillé n°22 Chevrolet Camaro pulled in a great result for his first oval race since 2015.

 

Camirand did not take long to be comfortable on the 5/8-mile oval, as he qualified in fifth place. “To race on a long oval track like Jukasa was new for me, and Scott (Steckly, 22 Racing team owner), gave me a word of advice to help me being fast right at the beginning. I scored my best qualifying result on an oval and I showed that I could be very fast during the race,” he told.

 

During the first laps, Camirand kept a good pace, but he had to concede a few spots after the car started to understeer. “Before the first stop, the handling got worse and I felt a vibration: I was afraid that a tire was damaged. I decided to take new tires during this first stop, but I had to start near the back of the field, because many other racers decided to stay on track for this non-mandatory stop,” added Camirand.

 

Although, his proved to be a good strategy, as the driver of the GM Paillé no22 Camaro quickly moved up to the front, as he was as fast as the leaders. He had come back the fourth spot before the second pit stop. When the race resumed, he preserved a top-five finish as the car stated to understeer again.

 

“I was fast, but I would have needed to be a little aggressive to take the third spot, and I had another racer behind me all over my mirrors. We decided to secure championships points instead of taking unnecessary risks”, Camirand stated.

 

Camirand finally took the fourth spot after an overtime finish. “I learned a lot today (Saturday) and I think that this looks good for other oval races. I showed that I could be quick, and I look forward to the next race,” he concluded.

The Rankin Construction 200 will air on TSN 2 on Saturday June 23rd at 2 p.m. and on RDS2 on Tuesday, July 3 at 10:30 p.m.

 

Marc-Antoine Camirand and the GM Paillé no22 Chevrolet Camaro will be back on track on June 30th, as the NASCAR Pinty’s series takes on the short high-banked oval of Autodrome Chaudière, in Vallée-Jonction, QC.

BRETT TAYLOR SCORES ANOTHER TOP TEN FINISH
 
June 16, 2018. Canada’s Best Racing Team (CBRT) returned to action for round two of the NASCAR Pinty’s Series this past Saturday night at Jukasa Motor Speedway near Hamilton, ON. Brett Taylor in the “Days of Thunder” inspired #46 iRacing.com/CBRT Dodge posted his second top-ten result at the renovated oval as he looks to continue his charge toward the Josten’s Rookie of the Year award.
 
The 200 lap feature event under the lights had two scheduled competition caution periods for the teams to service the car, however a bit of confusion at the first caution actually worked out for Taylor in the #46 iRacing.com/CBRT Dodge.  Instead of pitting as scheduled Taylor stayed out and while he did go a lap down, he was the recipient of the free pass and back on the lead lap following a second caution period.
 
Taylor would make his stop for fuel and tires later in the race and with fresher rubber than others fought his way forward in the field.  In the closing laps Taylor was battling with the #19 car when the other driver made an overly aggressive move causing both to spin and bring out the fifth caution of the night.  With only a couple of laps remaining Taylor hustled his #46 iRacing.com/CBRT Dodge to an eighth place finish.
 
CBRT General Manager Joey McColm was thrilled to see another solid finish for Taylor.  “This is the kind of start to a season that will win Brett that Rookie of the Year award,” he said.  “Consistent finishes, even with a late race spin that wasn’t of his making, that’s the sign of a pro and someone who’s working with the rest of the team and building momentum”.
 
McColm was also competing on Saturday in the #1 CBRT Dodge. McColm’s night would be a difficult one as he suffered two punctured left front tires.  “One of the control arms was rubbing on the tire and wasn’t something we could fix at the track so it finished our day early.  But the real news is Brett and how well he’s performed through the early part of the season” said McColm.
 
Next up for the CBRT drivers is round three of the NASCAR Pinty’s Series on Saturday June 30that the Autodrome Chaudière in Vallee Jonction, QC.  For the latest info & team updates follow @CBRTeams on Instagram and Facebook.
 
The Jukasa Speedway event will be broadcast on TSN June 23rdat 2PM ET.

Results/News / JASON WHITE MAKING THE MOVES AT JUKASA
« Last post by CanadianRacingOnline on June 18, 2018, 08:49:18 AM »
JASON WHITE MAKING THE MOVES AT JUKASA

June 16, 2018. Jason White was back in actin and had a speedy #28 Powder Ventures Excavating Dodge in his hands at round number two of the NASCAR Pinty’s Series this past Saturday at Jukasa Motor Speedway. In fact White would wind up passing more cars for position than any other competitor during the 200-lap race.

White sat in this #28 Powder Ventures Dodge and turned his first laps during the one-hour afternoon practice session. “The DJK guys worked right up until the last minute to make sure this car was just right and they did a great job” said White.  “It felt great right away”.

Starting from the 17thspot on the grid White looked for opportunity to advance his #28 Powder Ventures Dodge forward with the drop of the green flag.  “I just love racing at Jukasa Speedway, the job they did renovating this place is amazing.  The track is so smooth and you can really race hard and I was able to move forward”.

In the late stages of the race White believed he was on the lead lap but was scored one lap down by NASCAR officials. Rather than frustrate the #28 Powder Ventures driver he dug in and pushed hard in the final laps and caught a break when he received the free pass getting back on the same lap as the leaders. Powering his way to the checkered flag White scored an 11thplace finish.

“Would have liked to qualify a little better, but a lot of positives from this race.  We did get the award for most positions advanced.  The car doesn’t have a mark on it and when you’re disappointed about just missing the top-ten that means we’ve set our sights higher.  We learned a few things today and we’ll make some adjustments so we’re better when we come back later in the year” said White.

Jason White will be back behind the wheel of the #21 Powder Ventures Excavating car next at the Toronto Indy weekend in July. You can watch the race from Jukasa Motor Speedway on Saturday June 23rdat 2PM ET/10AM PT.
