Ryan Semple Rebounds for Top-10 at Sunset Speedway
 

Despite being involved in an incident mid-way through the feature, Ryan Semple rebounded for a top-10 finish at Sunset Speedway on Saturday night.

The first heat did not go well as Semple went for a pair of spins after contact, resulting in a ninth-place finish. He then backed it up with a runner-up finish in his second qualifier.

Starting 16th in the 30-lap feature, he began to make up ground early, running 14th as of the first caution at Lap 7. He was then set to make up more ground, however contact in turns one and two resulted in him going around for a spin.

Restarting 19th with 22 laps to go, he avoided the chaos on a restart when the leader got spun to get through the turn without any damage, moving up to the 15th position. Once the green flag flew, he continued to make up ground, running 11th as of the halfway point.

He continued to move forward, running ninth as of Lap 21. He’d battle hard through the final laps, though ultimately crossed the finish line in the 10th position.

So far this season, Semple has been impressive on a weekly basis, with this past weekend marking his first finish outside of the top-five. He will look to capture his first feature victory of the year on July 1.

Semple Motorsports is proud to be supported by Auto Trim Design, Boston Pizza, The Co-operators – Lila J. Sloss & Associates, Hybrid Landscape Management, Hwy 400 Transmission, A Man’s Zone Barber Shop, Streamline Race Products, Canadoor Door Systems, Paul Sadlon Motors, and Big Red Oil Products for the 2017 season.

Starting the feature in the sixth position, he would fade back in the early laps, falling back to 15th by Lap 7. He would avoid a wreck on the restart, allowing him to move up a spot to 14th with 22 laps to go. When chaos ensued on the restart with the leader being spun, he escaped turn three and four without any damage, moving up to the 10th spot.

Press Releases / Paul Maltese Scores Top-Five at Sunset Speedway

Paul Maltese Scores Top-Five at Sunset Speedway
 

While the results did not come together as Maltese Motorsports would have hoped, they were able to come away with a top-five finish in one of the features on Saturday night.

Following last week’s feature, Maltese started the first 35-lap feature affair from the fifth starting spot. In the early stages, he would drop back to ninth spot, he avoided the trouble that plagued other competitors to move up to eighth with 21 laps to go. He was then able to move up another spot when another competitor blew a motor on Lap 20, though slipped back to eighth with 11 laps to go.

Restarting just inside the top-10, he would move up to the sixth spot, avoiding a wreck ahead of him to move into the top-five with six laps to go. From there on, he held off a late charge from behind to cross the finish line in fifth.

Looking to carry the momentum forward, he would lay down a lap of 15.350 seconds in time trials to qualify 13th for the second 35-lap event. Starting just outside of the top-10, the beginning of the race did not start off well as he’d make contact with the inside frontstretch wall on Lap 5, but managed to keep it from being too heavily.

Running near the back of the field, he began to make up some ground, racing side-by-side with Taylor Holdaway for 12th at Lap 25. He would fall back a couple spots, though, crossing the finish line in 14th.

Starting 14th for the third feature, he was unable to make up much ground as he’d cross the finish line in 14th. 

While there has been some rough notes throughout the year, he has posted four top-10 finishes, including a pair of top-fives. He will look to continue running strong next week on July 1 in the next night of competition at Sunset Speedway.

Maltese and team are proud to be supported by Presto Appliance Repair, Delmeade Construction, Paragon Office Installations, Leitch Performance . Blue Sky Contracting and Landscape, Ontario Steel Sales, Essies Poultry Farms, Auto Trim Design, and OAS.

Rick Spencer-Walt Continues Winning Ways at Sunset Speedway
 

Despite starting off the night on a rough note, Spencer-Walt Motorsports ended Saturday night in victory lane with a victory in the third feature at Sunset Speedway.

Following last weekend’s runner-up, Spencer-Walt started 11th in the first 35-lap feature. Unfortunately, that didn’t pan out well as the field would stack up, with Spencer-Walt going around in turn four.

Restarting at the tail of the field, he would begin to make up ground, running 11th as of the second caution at Lap 15. He would continue making up ground to move up to eighth by the next caution with 16 laps to go. Restarting inside the top-10, he’d move up to sixth on the restart, moving into fifth when a competitor ahead of him had a flat tire with 11 laps to go.

Restarting inside the top-five, he would look to move up to fourth as he’d get alongside Brittney Gresel for fourth with five laps to go. Unfortunately, contact happened, resulting in Spencer-Walt going around for another spin. Restarting in 16th, he was able to make it back up to 13th by the checkered flag.

“I think we were probably one of the best cars on old tires, just nowhere to go,” Spencer-Walt said. “I think everybody saw how quick we were in the first overall feature here tonight – the make-up feature. We were really good. We got spun out early, came from the back again all the way up to fourth, and then the 50/50 deal down here. We ended up backwards with Gresel.

“It sucks for both of us, because we had a top-five going. If it was my fault, sorry to hear. It sucks for both of us. We could’ve had three top-fives tonight.”

Looking to turn things around, he would lay down a lap of 15.110 seconds to qualify third for the second feature. He’d run fourth through the early stages, getting alongside Mike Bentley for third at Lap 8. He was unable to complete the pass, though, and ended up falling back a couple spots to fifth by Lap 12.

The battle would get interesting at Lap 14, with Spencer-Walt, Thayne Hallyburton and Morrow going three-wide for fourth. Hallyburton backed out, with Morrow getting by Spencer-Walt to take the fourth spot two laps later. Billy Zardo was then able to get alongside Spencer-Walt for sixth, but was unable to completing the pass just before the caution flew for an incident ahead of them.

With 23 laps on the board, Spencer-Walt restarted in sixth, but avoided contact ahead of him in turns one and two to move up two spots to fourth. He would move past Billy Zardo on the restart to move up to third, where he’d cross the finish line with a solid top-five.

The re-draw saw him start fourth for the final feature on the night, with him battling side-by-side with Taylor Holdaway for third off the start. He would clear Holdaway easily, before passing Danny Benedict to move up to second by Lap 4. He was then able to track down Nick Goetz for the top spot, getting alongside him for the lead at Lap 9.

He would clear Goetz for the lead on Lap 12, and from there on, he set sail leading the rest of the way en route to checkered flag despite a dicey moment with some lap cars.

“I don’t mean to sound cocky at all, but when we got inside of five laps there, I knew we had a car that would win that race,” Spencer-Walt said. “Nick is very good; he ran a good race. I had newer tires, and you know, I got beat in the first one by newer tires by both Hallyburtons as they had a couple more new ones on than I did.

“The fans don’t get to see that stuff down in the pits. When you see a couple cars struggle out here, it may not be the car or driver – it could just be tires at the end of the day, because we’re on a tire program and you can’t burn them off. There are a lot of built motors here, so you gotta manage your stuff.”

The victory continues to add to this season’s results, though, marking the fifth podium finish in 10 features this season. Spencer-Walt will be back at Sunset Speedway on July 1, hopeful for his fifth feature victory of 2017.
