Mantha Captures Popular First Late Model Win At Cornwall

By Greg Calnan Cornwall, ON (Sunday, July 25th) The Ontario Dirt Late Models continued their eastern Ontario swing on Sunday with the tours second annual visit to Cornwall Motor Speedway. A total of 25 cars were on hand for the second round of the 2010 season.

Andrew Reaume and Chad Valone lined up on the front row for the 35 lap main event and at the drop of the green flag it was Valone grabbing the early lead. Jason McCrory brought out the first yellow of the evening with a slide through the infield grass. As the field went back to green conditions it was again Valone setting the pace until lap 3 when chaos ensued. Similar to the previous night at Brockville a multi-car crash filled the racing surface in the first corner. A number of drivers were involved with Keith Cameron, Mike Lewis and Jason Haskell receiving the worst of the damage.

After a brief time for cleanup the race was back underway with Valone continuing to lead and his teammate, and winner the previous night, David Scott moving his way up to the top three. Outside pole sitter Reaume began to fade in the middle stages of the race and gave up second to Scott. Both Greg Oakes and Peter Mantha were able to get by Reaume setting up a four car battle for the win.

On lap 16 Jeff Mutton brought out the yellow for a spin in corner two. The restart would feature the team cars of Valone and Scott on the front row. Valone continued his dominance by riding the top line around the track. The top groove began to lose its speed though as the laps wore on. Third place Oakes began to find bite on the bottom lane and moved past Scott for second and set his sights on the leader. The top two began to catch lapped traffic and it proved to be costly for Valone. He and Oakes split a lapped car going into corner three. Oakes was able to squeeze by on the bottom while Valone went too high and ran out of track. Valone went over the top of the banking and came to a rest in turn four bringing out the yellow on lap 23.

Oakes and Scott duked it out on the restart while a patient Mantha sat in third. Lapped traffic was the story in the closing laps as the top three chased down the win. Mantha did the best job of navigating through the field moving past Scott for second. Mantha then got the break he needed as he and leader Oakes went into the third corner side by side. A slower car in the path of Oakes allowed Mantha to rocket around the top of three and four and grab the lead at the line. The Gatineau, Quebec native lead the closing laps on the way to his first career late model victory. Oakes crossed the line second while Scott maintained the point lead with his third place finish.

It was a popular win for the former Cornwall Motor Speedway DIRTcar Small Block Modified driver. His victory propelled him two positions into third in Ontario Dirt Late Model points standings just 6 points out of first.

The Ontario Dirt Late Models return to action on Sunday, August 1st at Humberstone Speedway in Port Colborne, Ontario.
