Rob Warnes Snags Another Ontario Modifieds Win at Peterborough Speedway

By Jim Clarke, Clarke Motorsports Communications/First Draft Media

 

The Ontario Modifieds Racing Series – powered by Torque Builders Inc. – is getting close to putting the wraps on its 2016 agenda and while it wasn’t part of the announced schedule, the popular open wheeled road show checked-in Saturday, August 20th for an event at the venue known as Canada’s Toughest 3rd of a Mile Paved Oval.

 

Willow Barberstock and Rick Warnes brought the field of a dozen starters to the green flag at Peterborough Speedway. Barberstock took an early lead and while the 17 year-old from Stirling, Ontario has shown flashes of the form that she displayed as a track champion in the 4Fun division, her time at the front of the field was short-lived, as a spin through the infield grass brought-out the event’s first caution flag.

 

The father and son duo of Rick and Robert Warnes made-up the front row for the restart, with the former series champion taking the lead from the outside line. While the rest of the pack battled for position in his rear-view mirror, Rob Warnes sprinted out to healthy advantage of the field and was nearly a straightaway ahead of the second place runner as the laps clicked off.

 

With only one yellow flag during the entire 25 lap race distance, the younger Warnes was in a league of his own as he caught the tail-end of the pack with the scoreboard showing 20 circuits complete. Even though the rest of the pack began to close ranks, nothing would keep Rob Warnes from his second win of the year. Stu Robinson Jr., series point leader John Baker Jr., Christopher Mulders and invader Cory Horner rounded-out the top 5. Duane Cinnamon, Ryan Dick, Rick Warnes, Randy Hollingsworth, Connor James, Barberstock and Chris Burrows completed the finishing order.

 

Earlier in the night, qualifying heat races were won by John Baker Jr. with a pair, Cory Horner, Duane Cinnamon.
