INEX Ontario Legends Series Scores a Peterborough Speedway Hat Trick

By Jim Clarke, Clarke Motorsports Communications/First Draft Media

 

Close to 20 teams signed-in to battle Canada’s Toughest 3rd of a Mile Paved Oval – Saturday, June 20th – as the INEX Ontario Legends Series paid their 3rd visit of the season at Peterborough Speedway.

 

With Cole Ledson and Kevin Foisy at the front of the field, a 25 lap main event closed-out the night of action on Canada’s Toughest 3rd of a Mile Paved Oval. The first attempt at the green flag lasted less than a lap, when several cars came together on the exit of the second turn. Without an ‘official’ lap in the books, all drivers got their original starting positions back for a complete restart.

 

The second try wasn’t any more successful, as the pack was sent scrambling when the machine of Willy Howells caught fire on the front stretch. While the driver was unhurt, several cars needed to head pit-side to have their front or rear bumpers checked and the starting grid was re-racked for a 3rd shot.

 

The saying ‘the 3rd time is a charm’ proved prophetic, with some exciting racing throughout the field. Defending series champion Nicholas Ledson was in control, with Foisy chasing his rear bumper. When the lead duo caught the backmarkers after about 10 laps, Foisy was searching high and low for a way around the #15N, but to no avail. With 19 laps complete, Brian Saunders made contact with Jamie MacArthur and brought out the yellow flag.

 

Only 6 laps remained in the fray and the crowd was ready for a late race showdown between Ledson and Foisy. As the leaders came through the first and second turns, the pair touched and another caution flag waved. Officials deemed both machines to be ‘involved’ cars, sending each to the rear. While Foisy took his position, Ledson was finished for the night and cradled off the track.

 

In the closing stages, Brian Saunders held-off a late charge from Cole Ledson for his second Peterborough Speedway win of the season. Jacob Sheridan, Foisy and Jamie Riberdy rounded-out the top 5. Terry McClelland, Dave Riopielle, Cole McFadden, Bill Mason, Mike Gettliffe, Parker Traves, Jamie MacArthur, Rob Black, Nick Ledson, Don Arnott, Willy Howells and Mark Griffin completed the Legends Series feature event finishing order.

 

Defending series champion Nicholas Ledson, Brian Saunders with a pair and Kevin Foisy shared the Ontario Legends qualifying events.

 

INEX Ontario Legends Series notes: Mike Gettliffe, Jacob Sheridan and Dave Riopielle each made their first starts of the 2015 season.

 

The next event on the calendar for the series is Saturday, June 27th at Sunset Speedway.

Foisey and Riopelle had both raced at CapitalCity speedway before its demise. Any others from there running Inex?
