Ryan Hunsinger, who has a pair of wins this season, is third in the standings while Porter and Mike Thorne sit tied for fourth to round out the top-five. Josh Hansen is the top rookie driver in seventh in the standings and is coming off a third-place finish last week.

    Dylan Westbrook of Scotland, Ont. drove to his second weekly win of the season on Friday, June 30

    OHSWEKEN, Ont. – June 30, 2017 – Ohsweken Speedway was a busy place as Friday Night Excitement returned to action with Durnin Motors and Bradshaw Brothers Hot Rod Cruise Night featuring the Southern Ontario Sprints on Friday, June 30, 2017.

    The track welcomed YouTube star Tanner Fox to compete with the HRW Automotive Mini Stocks for his first ever dirt track race. When the dust settled, it was Dylan Westbrook, Shone Evans, Dave Bailey and Lucas Smith who picked up victories.

    Southern Ontario Sprints vs. Kool Kidz-Corr/Pak 360 Sprint Cars (20 entries)

    Lee Winger and Jim Huppunen started on the front row for the Southern Ontario Sprints vs. Kool Kidz-Corr/Pak Sprint Cars 25-lap A-Feature with Huppunen jumping out to the early lead. The opening two corners saw several drivers fight their cars on a challenging track.

    While Huppunen opened an early lead, several fans were watching a charge forward from eighth-starting Dylan Westbrook. On lap six, Westbrook and Ryan Turner battled for the second spot after both drove past Jake Brown when the left side-panel blew off the top-wing on his No.1-10. A caution on lap eight calmed the battle up front, but Westbrook drove to the third spot on lap 10 and one lap later took second from Winger.

    A three-wide battle for third ensued between Winger, Turner and Mikey Kruchka while Huppunen and Westbrook raced away into traffic. Kruchka won the battle for third and attempted to regain touch with the leaders.

    Huppunen found himself in traffic at lap 16 and Westbrook used the opportunity to eat into the lead. At lap 18, Huppunen’s advantage was erased when the caution flag waved for debris in turn one. Westbrook made the winning pass on the following restart with a slide job in front of Huppunen’s No.14h in turns one and two. Huppunen stayed with the eventual winner, but could not get within striking distance to retake the point. The win was Westbrook’s second weekly victory of the season at Ohsweken.Winger, Huppunen and Westbrook won qualifying heats.

    Strickland’s GMC Crate Sprint Cars (29 entries)

    Jesse Costa and Shone Evans started up front for the Strickland’s GMC Crate Sprint Cars 20-lap main event. Evens jumped to an early advantage while the fourth starter, Mack DeMan, raced into second. The race was slowed quickly, however, when Mike Thorne rolled to a stop at the top of turn four on lap two.

    Evans withstood DeMan’s attack on the restart while Costa began to experience problems behind the two leaders. Jesse McDonald raced into third on lap four before Costa came to a stop during a lap eight caution for a spun Davey Boughton.

    Following the restart, Josh Shantz took second from DeMan. Three laps later on lap 14, DeMan’s night ended when he suffered damage to the right-front corner of his Lucas Oil No.4 and stopped in turn two. Evans held off Shantz on the restart and again on a green-white-checkered finish to score the victory. McDonald claimed the third spot. Hannah Ferrell, Ryan Hunsinger and Costa won qualifying heats.

    Middleport Mechanical Thunder Stocks (28 entries)

    The Middleport Mechanical Thunder Stock feature had Nick Liverance and Kacey Huffman on the front row for the 20-lap main event. Before the first lap couple be completed, the race was slowed for a stopped Christopher Hale in turn two.

    Sixth-starting Jason Lungaro drove to the lead on the opening lap and Dereck Lemyre claimed second. The early hard charger was point leader Dave Bailey who came from the 17th starting position to second by lap three.

    Bailey and Lungaro then waged battle for the top spot with Bailey leading the fifth lap at the start-finish line. Three laps later, Bailey was clear of Lungaro for the lead and on lap 11 held a 1.8-second advantage of Ryan Beagle who took second from Lungaro.

    Slower traffic was not an issue for Bailey who navigated flawlessly ahead of Ryan Dinning who recovered from an early lap two spin to race forward to second on lap 14. Dinning did his best to cut into Bailey’s lead once the two cars had a clear track free of traffic to race. Dinning was fast in his No.8 and was eating into Bailey’s lead, but couldn’t get close enough to make a big for the lead before the checkered flag waved on lap 20 to hand Bailey his fourth win of the season.

    Earlier in the night, Lungaro, Lemyre and Bailey won qualifying heat races.

    HRW Automotive Mini Stocks (36 entries)

    The HRW Automotive Mini Stock Feature was the final event to hit the track. Tim Nuell and Dusty DeBoer made up the front row while San Diego, Calif. native Tanner Fox was set to challenge from the rear of the field. DeBoer led the opening lap with five-wide racing taking place throughout the entire field behind him. Guelph driver

    Bobby Tolton took the lead on lap three, but before the fourth lap couple be completed a major eight-car wreck took place on the backstretch with Brandon Crumbie’s No.63 finding the outside retaining wall to set off a chain reaction. The red flag was displayed to begin cleaning up the incident. Before the race could be restarted, heavy rain began to fall and washed out the racetrack. The remainder of the race was postponed to Friday, July 7 with the race continuing from lap three.

    Jason Dixon, Tolton and Dave Crumbie won qualifying heats earlier in the night while rookie Nick Masi won the B-Main.

    Gale’s Auto Aftermarket Bombers (19 entries)

    Eric Maas and Brooke Nelson brought the Gale’s Auto Aftermarket Bomber feature to the green flag. Mass took the early lead while Jake Maas raced into the second spot and the 18th starter Lucas Smith claimed the third spot on lap four.

    On lap five, Eric Maas No.37x suffered a flat tire, ending his night and handing the lead to Jake. His lead was erased by a lap seven caution. On the restart, Smith drove past Tim Jamieson’s No.177 for second. The race was slowed again on lap nine and again on lap 11 providing Smith the opportunity he needed. On lap 11, he drove to the extreme low side of the track and took the lead and drove to his second victory of the season over Paul Longboat’s No.188 and Jerry Burnham after Jake Maas was shuffled back on the restart. Eric Maas and Gillian Hils won qualifying heats.

    Ryan Turner (No.91) races his brother Cory Turner (No.97) during Sprint Car action at Ohsweken Speedway on July 7, 2017

    CAISTOR CENTRE, Ont. – July 4, 2017 – Team Turner Racing was at full speed for Friday Night Excitement and turned in their best collective performance of the season at Ohsweken Speedway on June 30.

    Cory Turner led the way for the team in his KT Tobacco/Silo Wireless No.97 with a fourth-place finish in the main event. However, it was Ryan Turner’s Ace’s Bar and Grill No.91 that was quickest in heat race action where he earned a second-place finish.

    “We got a good start and followed Dylan Westbrook into one and two and then kind of followed him through to the front,” Ryan said. The car was good. The crew had it setup really good. We had a bit of a different setup this week and I was happy with the way it was rolling.”

    Jamie Turner raced to a third-place result in his heat while Cory drove to a fourth-place finish. Ryan’s strong heat run allowed him to start fourth, Jamie lined up in seventh and Cory was tasked with starting 11th.

    Early in the race, Cory made a big move to race forward four spots from 12th to eighth on the opening lap. It was a daring move that paid off for the No.97 group.

    “I drove in hard and I just gave ‘er. It seems like the outside rows are getting a way better run on the start,” Cory said. “My dad started seventh and I was already by him down the backstretch.”

    Jamie’s start was hindered by a slow inside line. His Charlie Bee Honey No.11 was forced to work the bottom lane early on.

    “I was okay early on,” Jamie said. “My car didn’t like the bumps that well tonight and I didn’t make the right adjustments for it. We were just kind of hanging on there at the end. We came home in one piece and we’re looking forward to next week.”

    Ryan was strong early in the race and battled inside the top-five most of the race. The first caution on lap eight was not to his benefit though as the car changed dramatically during the yellow flag.

    “I took a chunk of mud in the head on lap three and I think that woke me up,” Ryan joked. “Before the first caution my tires started to come alive and heat up a bit. I really started to go ahead and find the groove in the rough stuff. I didn’t want to see that caution. We just slid for second and the caution came out, so we went back a lap. The car just wasn’t the same after the first caution and it got worse after the second caution.”

    Cory found some extra speed late in the race. The final caution with 27 laps to go allowed him to gain a final spot and earn his fourth-place finish.

    “Twelfth to fourth, I was pretty happy with that,” Cory said. “I thought we had a car capable of a podium and I thought we had the speed to win. I was really happy with the car. It was good at Merrittville and good this week.”

    All three drivers were thrown a curveball by a very fast, tacky and bumpy racetrack that was vastly different from the smooth and slick surface they’ve faced most of the season. The change in conditions was due mostly to the large amount of rain that fell in the preceding week.

    “It definitely makes it challenging, especially when we get used to the slick track all the time,” Ryan said. “We’re used to the slick track all year long and now we’re challenged with a tacky track.

    “The guys can’t control the weather,” Jamie added. “I know they’ll be back on top of it. You just have to be happy when you come out without the top-wing wrecked.”

    Team Turner Racing will be back in action on Friday, July 7 to kickoff the month of July with another round of Friday Night Excitement at Ohsweken. For additional event information, visit www.ohswekenspeedway.com.

    Cory Turner races through turn two at Ohsweken Speedway

    CAISTOR CENTRE, Ont. – July 4, 2017 – Cory Turner turned in an impressive and resilient performance during 360 Sprint Car action at Ohsweken Speedway on Friday night.

    The final race of June for Turner’s KT Tobacco/Silo Wireless No.97 Hill’s Racing ride resulted in a fourth-place finish in the Southern Ontario Sprints vs. Kool Kidz-Corr/Pak Sprint Cars.

    Turner had to work for his sixth top-five finish of the season though as he struggled early on in his heat and slipped to a fourth-place finish.

    “We didn’t get a good start and then we pushed a little bit,” Turner said. “We ran the fastest lap of any of the heat races on laps six and seven. The car was really good, We just didn’t get a good start and was behind. We haven’t seen tracks like that in a while that are really hammer down.”

    Turner’s fourth-place result in the heat race put him 12th on the starting grid for the 25-lap main event. Turner didn’t waste any time moving forward as he made a daring slice through the middle on the opening lap.

    “We drove in hard and I just gave ‘er,” Turner said. “It seems like the outside rows are getting a way better run on the start. My dad started seventh and we were already by him down the backstretch. I think we went 12th to eighth on the first lap and by the first caution we were up challenging almost for the top-five.”

    From there, Turner battled lapped traffic on several restarts and a tough racetrack. Plenty of rain over the week at the track made it a fast, but bumpy ride.

    “We didn’t get in really good in the first corner after the restart and a couple of guys got by me and it took 10 laps to get back by them,” Turner said. “There was one time where Jake Brown lost his sideboard and we bicycled really hard. I thought we were going on our lid and we caught a caution right after it.”

    Turner said the bumpy track often offers drivers a catch-22 decision.

    “Usually the ruts are fast because that’s where the moisture still is,” he said. “If you don’t bicycle, you’re going to make some time, but if you do you’re going to lose a second. It’s tough that way.”

    A caution with seven laps to go brought the final restart of the night and Turner was able to race forward to fourth, but the field was strung out from there on and made it impossible for the No.97 to move forward any further.

    “Twelfth to fourth, I was pretty happy with that,” Turner explained. “I thought we had a car capable of a podium and I thought we had the speed to win. We were really happy with the car. It was good at Merrittville and good this week.”

    Turner plans to back in action this week at Ohsweken on July 7 for another round of Friday Night Excitement. Currently, Turner is 17 points back of the point lead in third. For more event information, visit www.ohswekenspeedway.com.

    Glenn Styres races his O'Neils Farm Equipment/Case IH No.0 Sprint Car at Ohsweken Speedway earlier this season.

    OHSWEKEN, Ont. – July 6, 2017 – Ohsweken Speedway is set to resume Friday Night Excitement as O’Neil’s Farm Equipment and Case IH present Media Appreciation and Frankie Turkey Memorial night.

    The HRW Automotive Mini Stocks will run double features with the Kool Kids-Corr/Pak 360 Sprints Cars, Strickland’s GMC Crate Sprint Cars, Middleport Mechanical Thunder Stocks and Gale’s Auto Aftermarket Bombers also on the schedule.

    The night will honour the late Frankie Turkey, track owner Glenn Styres’ uncle, who passed away following a car accident at just 27 years of age. Frankie introduced Glenn to auto racing at a young age, and remains an inspiration for many parts of Glenn’s business – including the track’s trademark orange.

    Several media members will also be in attendance for Media Appreciation night. Members of the local media will have the chance to take the ride of their life in Ohsweken’s unique two-seat Sprint Car. They’ll also have the opportunity to sample the track’s delicious menu choices, including Pinty’s Chicken Fingers and Boneless Wings, Eataly subs and Wally Parr Sausages.

    Race time is 7:30pm with Pit Gates scheduled to open at 5:30pm and Spectator Gates opening at 6:00pm. Admission for adults is just $14, $10 for seniors (65+), Youths (13-17), while kids age 7-12 are only $3. Children 6 and under are free.

    Kool Kidz-Corr/Pak 360 Sprint Cars
    Dylan Westbrook continued his winning ways last week when he used a late restart to take the lead from Jim Huppunen and drive off to his second challenge race victory of the season against the Southern Ontario Sprints. Weekly racing resumes this week with Westbrook still holding a narrow two point advantage over Huppunen at the top of the standings. Cory Turner is third in the standings just 17 points back of the lead while Ryan Turner and Mikey Kruchka round out the top five.

    HRW Automotive Mini Stocks
    The HRW Automotive Mini Stock drivers will have double features this week. Last week’s Feature was interrupted after just three laps. That race will pick-up from that point and will be the first race of the night this week. Drivers will then begin a brand new event and qualify for the night’s Feture through normal procedures. So far this season, the division has seen four different winners in as many races, with rookie driver Nick Masi the most recent victor after he picked up a win on June 16. Entering the night, Mark Bazuin is the point leader with just a seven-point advantage over Jon Jansses. Brandon Crumbie, Brandon Janssens and Aaron Rewutzsky complete the current top-five.

    Strickland’s GMC Crate Sprint Cars
    The Strickland’s GMC Crate Sprint Car division will look to thrill again when they hit the Ohsweken clay again this week. Shone Evans drove his No.87x to Victory Lane, leading every lap for his first career win. Jesse McDonald is the new high point man in the championship standings after Mack DeMan suffered mechanical problems and was unable to finish the main event last week.

    Middleport Mechanical Thunder Stocks
    Dave Bailey continues to be the measuring stick in the Middleport Mechanical Thunder Stock feature as the Hagersville, Ont. driver raced to his fourth win of the season last week. Ryan Dinning, who also as a win this season, earned another strong second-place finish. The two drivers have waged an exciting battle all season long, including an instant-classic finish back on June 16 when the margin of victory was just 0.005 seconds. They’ll both have their hands full again this week though with weekly top-five contenders Ken Sargent, Jim Lampman, Dereck Lemyre and Trevor DeBoer all hungry for a parking spot in Victory Lane.

    Gale’s Auto Aftermarket Bombers
    The Gale’s Auto Aftermarket Bombers are also excited to return to action after one of their most exciting races of the season. Point leader Lucas Smith won from the 17th starting spot last week, but had to outduel a number of tough competitors who are fighting to take over the top spot in the standings. He’ll have to contend with the likes of Gillians Hils, Paul Longboat, Dustin Longboat, and Alex and Jake Mass, to name a few.

    Tanner Fox signed autographs for nearly 2000 fans during his Meet & Greet at ActionXpo on July 1

    OHSWEKEN, Ont. – July 5, 2017 – The first-ever ActionXpo held at Ohsweken Speedway on Saturday, July 1 was a resounding success.

    The first-ever Action Sports Exhibition of its kind in Canada was also the largest scooter riding event in the western hemisphere. Nearly 2000 teenagers and kids turned out to meet YouTube star and professional scooter rider Tanner Fox during the afternoon meet and greet.

    “There hasn’t been anything like it on this side of the world,” said Mark Czuba, owner of presenting sponsor Jibs Action Sports. “It’s very hard to find an event that big. For its first year, it was a resounding success. We can’t wait to make ActionXpo even better next year.

    Fans came from over 500 kilometres away to meet Tanner Fox and see his Nissan GTR Guaczilla in person. They also had the chance to ride BMX bikes, scooters and skateboards alongside professional riders and the Jibs Pro team during the jam session on the custom skate park.

    "We definitely saw the power of kids,” said Ohsweken Speedway general manager Clinton Geoffrey. “It was amazing to see 2000 of them going crazy when we introduced Tanner Fox and his famous car!"

    The first-ever ActionXpo evening thrill show was unfortunately postponed when a torrential downpour in the afternoon made the competition area unsafe for the competitors. ActionXpo fans will have the chance to witness the Monster Truck action that was scheduled for the thrill show during Monster Mash presented by Insta-Insulation on September 8. The show will now feature four different Monster Trucks, including Overkill Evolution, Higher Education, Temperature Rising and Anger Management.

    Dylan Westbrook was the 360 Sprint Car winner for the fourth time in 2017 at Ohsweken on Friday, July 7

    OHSWEKEN, Ont. – July 7, 2017 – A total of 128 cars packed the pit area for Frankie Turkey Memorial and Media Appreciation night presented by O’Neil’s Farm Equipment and Case IH to start the month of July at Ohsweken Speedway.

    When the final checkered flag waved, it was Dylan Westbrook, Holly Porter, Ryan Dinning, Jon Janssens, Bobby Tolton and Dustin Longboat who stood in Lucas Oil Victory Lane.

    KOOL KIDZ/CORR-PAK 360 SPRINT CARS

    Front row starter Jake Brown raced to an early lead on the outside in the Kool Kidz-Corr/Pak 360 Sprint Car Feature while third-starting Dylan Westbrook quickly jumped into second ahead of polesitter Jim Huppunen. Scott Kreutter worked his way into the top-three on lap three and made it a three-car battle up front.

    The race was slowed for its only caution on lap six when Curtis Gartly’s No.6 slowed in turn three. On the following restart, Westbrook got past Brown for the point and Kreutter followed suit into second. Westbrook pulled out to a lead, but Kreutter reeled him in on lap 12. Westbrook played defense over the next five laps to maintain an advantage of 0.3 seconds.

    When the two drivers caught slower traffic with three laps to go, Westbrook found another gear and drove away from Kreutter by 2.4 seconds to secure his fourth win of the season at Ohsweken. The victory moved Westbrook into a tie for sixth with Steve Poirier for the most all-time wins at Ohsweken with eight. Jake Brown and Cory Turner were heat race winners.

    STRICKLAND’S GMC CRATE SPRINT CARS
    Holly Porter brought the Strickland’s GMC Crate Sprint Car field to the green flag from the pole position and was simply dominant the rest of the way. The Delhi, ON driver paced the field through a flurry of early cautions on laps two and four despite the efforts of Jerry Hill and teammate Jesse McDonald.

    Porter was perfect on a number of restarts including on the green-white-checkered finish. The battle to watch was for second as teammates Jesse McDonald and Aaron Turkey battled Mack DeMan and Jerry Hill for second and third. It was following the final restart that Turkey was able to get by Hill for third and bring DeMan with him as Hill settled for fifth. The Porter, McDonald and Turkey top-three made it a podium sweep for Styres racing.

    Eric McGlone, Ryan Hunsinger, Jesse Costa and McDonald were heat race winners. Hannah Ferrell and Cody Day won the pair of B-Mains, but Day was later disqualified for having the nose wing too far forward.

    MIDDLEPORT MECHANICAL THUNDER STOCKS
    Nick Liverance and Chris Hale brought the field to the green flag for the Middleport Mechanical 20-lap Feature. Liverance grabbed an early advantage while the man on the move was the 14th starter Dereck Lemyre, who was into the top-five by lap three. On lap five, Lemyre’s momentum in the outside lane allowed him to take the lead from Liverance, however he had hard chargers Ryan Dinning, Ken Sargent and Dave Bailey knocking on his rear bumper by the time of the first caution on lap seven for a spin that involved Jim Lampman, Ryan Beagle and Frankie Turkey Jr.

    Lemyre and Dinning fought tooth and nail for the lead over the next three laps before Dinning cleared the No.56 for sole possession of the top spot on lap 10. The caution flag waved again on lap 12 to give Lemyre another shot at Dinning up front. However, Bailey took the bottom lane on the restart and grabbed second from Lemyre, but could not track down Dinning over the final eight circuits.

    The victory was Dinning’s second of the season while Bailey, Lemyre, Jason Lungaro and Rob Hoskins rounded out the top-five. Hale, Chris Dickie and Trevor DeBoer were qualifying heat winners.

    HRW AUTOMOTIVE MINI STOCKS
    The HRW Automotive Mini Stock drivers had a pair of Features on tap as they completed the final 12 laps of their June 30 Feature that was cut short by rain. Bobby Tolton restarted that race at the front of the field and completely checked out from the drop of the green flag. He paced all 12 remaining laps to secure his first career victory at Ohsweken. His teammate Brandon Crumbie drove all the way from the rear of the field to a second-place finish.

    In the regularly scheduled Feature that was the nightcap, Chris French jumped out to an early advantage after starting on the pole as Brandon Janssens and Wayde Thorne battled for second. The first of two yellow flags came on lap seven and saw Thorne take the lead, but just three laps later it was Jon Janssens making a bid for the lead past the No.4w.

    Jon Janssens took the lead on lap 12 and then held off Thorne and rookie Nick Masi on a restart with three laps to go in order to secure the victory. Masi edged past Thorne on the final lap to claim the runner-up spot and Mark Bazuin and Fabio Olivieri rounded out the top-five. Thorne, Tim Nuell and Tolton were heat race winners while Jacob Bazuin won the B-Main.

    GALE'S AUTO AFTERMARKET BOMBERS
    A thrilling and chaotic Gale’s Auto Aftermarket Bomber Feature had Eric Maas and Cody Sommerville on the front row. Sommerville, who was debuting a new ride, raced out to an early lead and paced the field until lap three. At that point third-starting Dustin Longboat was on the move and assumed the lead. Longboat continued to lead following a lap six restart and appeared to have a win in the bag.

    However, Longboat’s advantage was eliminated by a caution on lap 11 that setup a green-white-checkered finish to extend the race to 13 laps. Sommerville retook the lead on the restart with a slick inside move in turn one, but overshot the exit of turn four and suffered a flat right-front tire, allowing Longboat to retake the lead. Longboat didn’t make the same mistake twice as he led the final lap to secure the victory ahead of Jerry Burnham and Enya Robinson. Longboat and Gillian Hils were qualifying heat winners.

    Jamie Turner pilots his Charlie Bee Honey No.11 through turn four at Ohsweken Speedway.

    CAISTOR CENTRE, Ont. – July 10, 2017 – Team Turner Racing unloaded at Ohsweken Speedway last Friday to start the month of July with Frankie Turkey Memorial night, in honour of track owner Glenn Styres’ late uncle.

    The team came away from the July kickoff with a pair of top-10 finishes from Cory and Ryan Turner.

    All three TTR cars started the night in the same heat race. Cory started outside the front row in his KT Tobacco/Silo Wireless No.97 and jumped to an early lead that he never surrendered. Ryan and Jamie were tasked with racing forward from the rear of the field on a very tacky track and finished sixth and seventh, respectively.

    “In the heat race, we got lucky,” Cory said. “We got the outside pole, got the jump and that was all she wrote. My guys said we had a really good car. I think we were 13.6, which is a good lap around here.

    “With all of the wet weather lately it was definitely very narrow with a hammer down track. I don’t think I lifted off the throttle the entire heat race,” Ryan added.

    Cory was the only driver of the three to qualify for the redraw where he pulled the number seven spot. Ryan lined up his Ace’s Bar and Grill No.91 in 11th while Jamie rolled the Charlie Bee Honey No.11 from the 14th starting spot.

    “In the Feature, we actually loosened up the car, which I think was the right call,” Ryan said. “We were just off a little bit. I started to go ahead early on and then just seemed to sit in tenth for the rest of the race. I just kind of rode the middle and it wasn’t bad, but it wasn’t that good either.”

    Cory raced inside the top-10 throughout the whole event and advanced to the sixth position. He ran a very fast outside lane that eventually proved quite treacherous as he hopped the cushion on a couple of occasions that sent the car bicycling.

    “I was going good early up on the cushion and then cost me some time, probably a second and a half, when we bicycled,” Cory explained. “We caught a caution and drove around Lee Winger on the restart. I did it again after and then tried to stay off it and just ride until we could bring it home.”

    Jamie battled the narrow track conditions most of the night and having to start at the rear for both the heat and Feature did not help his effort.

    “It was just hard to pass,” Jamie said. “It was a narrow track with a real heavy cushion only halfway up. It’s one of those nights where you take it, you go home and you get ready for next week.”

    “Let’s just hope for some nicer weather,” Jamie continued. “The track guys did a really nice job from last week. It’ll just keep getting better. As the track widens out, it’ll make the racing that much better.”

    Team Turner Racing is gearing up for a busy weekend of action July 14-16. The weekend starts with Sponsor Night at Ohsweken on July 14 where the team will welcome all of their sponsors to the speedway for Friday Night Excitement. The TTR convoy will then then travel to Eastern Ontario to battle the Patriot Sprint Tour at Brockville Ontario Speedway and Cornwall Motor Speedway on Saturday, July 15 and Sunday, July 16.

    Cory Turner races through turn tow at Ohsweken on the way to an eighth-place finish to start the month of July

    CAISTOR CENTRE, Ont. – July 10, 2017 – A lightning quick Ohsweken Speedway was the site of Cory Turner’s July opener.

    The Caistor Centre, Ont. driver piloted his KT Tobacco/Silo Wireless No.97 Hill’s Racing ride to an eighth-place finish for his 10th top-10 result in 12 starts this season.

    Turner started outside the front row for his heat race and used the advantageous position to his benefit. After the opening two corners, Turner held the point position and then paced the field for the remaining eight laps to secure the heat race win.

    “In the heat race, we got lucky,” Turner said. “We got the outside pole, got the jump and that was all she wrote. My guys said we had a really good car. I think we were 13.6, which is a good lap around here.”

    Turner’s quick lap of 13.667 seconds was the fastest lap of the heat race and set him up for a strong Feature run. The redraw added to Turner’s task as he pulled the seventh starting position for the 20-lap main event.

    “Our car was really good in the Feature,” Turner said. “In the Feature we ended up drawing seven and I think we were as high as sixth. We ended up getting passed on the last lap and finished eighth. The car was good. Nobody really got away from us.”

    The track was narrow with a heavy cushion up on the top of the track, but did still have a bottom groove. The outside lane was fast, but sometimes treacherous.

    “I was going good early up on the cushion and then it cost me some time, probably a second and a half, when we bicycled,” Turner explained. “We caught a caution and drove around Lee Winger on the restart. I did it again after and then tried to stay off it and just ride until we could bring it home.”

    With a threat of rain in the area and an already incredibly fast track, Turner had his car setup in anticipation of tacky conditions.

    “I was worried about it raining during the race, so I left the car pretty free,” Turner said. “It feels like two-thirds of the races at Ohsweken we’ve had rain during the races, so it definitely plays in your mind. We had rain drops before we were going out, so I tried to leave it free just like we did in the heat race.”

    Turner still turned in a strong effort with his eighth-place finish on a track where passing was at a premium. It continued to build on a strong first half of the season as Turner concluded his first dozen races of the season.

    “We’ve definitely exceeded our finishes from last season,” Turner said. “We need to get a little luck in the redraw. We need to keep being fast in the heat races, get into the redraw and hopefully pull some good pills or just get our car faster and get to the front. I think we have the team capable of winning a couple of races before the end of the year. We’ve shown some good speed and I think we’re going to be good the last half of the year.”

    Turner will continue the month of July with a busy weekend next week. He will return to Ohsweken on Friday, July 13 for Sponsor Night before heading to Eastern Ontario with the Patriot Sprint Tour on Saturday, July 14 and Sunday, July 15. The Series will stop at Brockville Ontario Speedway and Cornwall Motor Speedway on consecutive nights. For additional event information, visit www.ohswekenspeedway.com or www.patriotsprinttour.com.

    Dylan Westbrook won his fifth straight 360 Sprint Car start at Ohsweken on Friday. July 14

    OHSWEKEN, Ont. – July 14, 2017 – A total of 125 cars filled the pit area on Friday for Emergency Services and Sponsor Night presented by Strickland’s GMC at Ohsweken Speedway.

    When the final checkered flag waved, it was Dylan Westbrook, Mack DeMan, Ryan Dinning, Brandon Janssens, and Cody Sommerville who stood in the Lucas Oil Victory Lane.


    KOOL KIDZ/CORR-PAK 360 SPRINT CARS
    Dylan Westbrook continued his dominance Friday, picking up his fifth consecutive win in the Kool Kidz-Corr/Pak 360 Sprint Car division.

    Westbrook started fourth, but led the first lap of the race after zooming by Mitch Brown, Scott Kreutter, and Jamie Turner. Brown and Kreutter battled for second for most of the race, while Turner fell back and finished in 11th place.

    Without the help of a caution, Westbrook could not be caught. He lapped all but five cars and finished the 20-lap feature with a 10.547 second lead over second place Brown. Kreutter, Mikey Kruchka and Jim Huppunen completed the top five. Cory Turner and Westbrook won qualifying heats.

    STRICKLAND’S GMC CRATE SPRINT CARS
    AJ Lewis and Jacob Dykstra brought the field to green, but they did not get far as a massive collision at the front of the field in turn one brought out the red flag. Dykstra’s sprint car flipped onto its right side, causing enough damage to knock him out of the race along with Jerry Hill and Cody Day.

    The wreck caused a total reshuffling of the field as the involved leaders were placed at the back of the pack. Mack DeMan used this to his advantage. DeMan, originally the eighth starter, restarted second alongside Lewis. When the green flag waved, DeMan used the high side of the speedway to get by Lewis.

    DeMan never surrendered his lead, using the bottom of the racetrack to navigate lapped traffic and pick up the feature win over Holly Porter by 6.410 seconds. Mike Thorne, Lewis and Hannah Ferrell rounded out the top five.

    Jesse McDonald, AJ Lewis, Jacob Dykstra, and Josh Shantz were heat winners. Liam Martin won the B-Main.

    MIDDLEPORT MECHANICAL THUNDER STOCKS
    Three and four-wide racing brought out an early lap 1 red flag at the beginning of the Middleport Mechanical Thunder Stocks 20-lap feature. The wreck took out seven of the 23 starters in the feature, including polesitter Nick Liverance.

    Logan Shwedyk took the lead out of the caution, but was only able to hold it for three laps as Ken Sargent came storming from behind to take the lead.

    The two-car battle for the lead quickly became a four-car battle, as Ryan Dinning and Dave Bailey made their way from the back of the field again to join the leaders by lap 8. Dinning took the lead for good on lap 10, but Bailey fought valiantly side-by-side until the checkered flag flew.

    For Dinning, it was his second consecutive win. No one has beat Dinning or Bailey in the Middleport Mechanical Thunder Stocks division since July 22, 2016.

    HRW AUTOMOTIVE MINI STOCKS
    Gary Hodgson raced out to an early lead at the start of the 15-lap HRW Automotive Mini Stocks Feature but was soon challenged by Brandon Janssens. Using the high side of the racetrack, Janssens was able to get by Hodgson on lap six.

    A Dusty DeBoer crash along the front straightaway on lap 9 brought Hodgson and Janssens back together. When the green flew again, Janssens used the top of the speedway to get a lead on Hodgson. He never yielded that lead, taking the feature win, one week after finishing a disappointing 24th.

    Brandon Crumbie was able to get by Hodgson on lap 12 to take second place, while Hodgson settled for third. Aaron Rewutzky and Nick Masi completed the top five.

    Janssens, Hodgson, and Bobby Tolton were heat winners. Fabio Olivierie won the B-Main.

    GALE'S AUTO AFTERMARKET BOMBERS
    Tim Jamieson had the pole for the Gale’s Auto Aftermarket Bombers 12-lap feature, but a lap one yellow flag shuffled the field. When green was displayed, Cody Sommerville charged out of the gate and took the lead. Sommerville, who debuted his new ride last week, was a man on a mission. He never relented despite a hard charging Adam Plazek.

    Lapped traffic was not a problem for Sommerville, who was able to weave in and out of the slow cars on the small track at Ohsweken. Plazek, fought off third place challenger Dustin Longboat, but the lapped traffic got the best of him in his quest to take down Sommerville.

    Kyle Larson will run his No.57 Sprint Car at Ohsweken Speedway in the Burger Barn Northern Summer Nationals on July 24 and the Arrow Express Six Nations Showdown

    OHSWEKEN, Ont. – July 21, 2017 – Ohsweken Speedway is excited to welcome Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series multi-time winner Kyle Larson for two big nights of Sprint Car racing at the 3/8-mile clay oval on Monday July 24 in the Burger Barn Northern Summer Nationals and Tuesday July 25 in the Arrow Express Six Nations Showdown for the World of Outlaws Craftsman® Sprint Car Series.

    Ohsweken officials are, however, disappointed to announce Rico Abreu has withdrawn from his commitment to race at both events.

    "Due to recent personnel changes within Rico Abreu Racing, we're unable to participate in the upcoming races on July 24-25 at Ohsweken Speedway,” Rico Abreu said in a statement. “This has impacted our preparation for these events. We realize not being able to appear at Ohsweken Speedway will be disappointing to the fans who already purchased tickets to see us race, but we hope to be in Canada to race at Ohsweken next year."

    Ohsweken Speedway officials were stunned to learn of Abreu’s decision Thursday night.

    "To say we are disappointed in an understatement," said Ohsweken Speedway General Manager Clinton Geoffrey. "We were shocked to hear about this turn of events. Our management staff at Ohsweken immediately contacted Kyle Larson's team who have confirmed that he will be ready to compete on Monday and Tuesday."

    Despite Abreu’s absence, Ohsweken officials are pleased to confirm that four-time Knoxville Nationals champion ‘The Dude’ Danny Lasoski of Dover, Missouri will drive a Hoddick Racing entry for both events. In addition to his four Knoxville crowns, three of which came with Tony Stewart Racing, Lasoski is also a former full-time World of Outlaws competitor who is seventh on the Series’ all-time win list with 90 Feature victories.

    A healthy contingent of local and Northeastern stars will be in attendance for both shows to battle with Larson. The hottest 360 Sprint Car driver in the Northeast and current Ohsweken Kool Kidz-Corr/Pak Sprint Car point leader Dylan Westbrook will try to defend his home turf against Larson. Lucas Oil Empire Super Sprint point leader Jason Barney has also confirmed his attendance and plans to hunt down Larson for the third Ohsweken win of his career.

    The following the night, the stars of the World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series roll into town for the 11th straight season. Eight-time and defending Outlaw champion Donny Schatz of Fargo, ND will be gunning to repeat his 2016 victory and continue on the lucrative pace he has set to start Sprint Car racing’s Month of Money.

    Full-time Outlaw and former Canadian Sprint Car Nationals winner Shane Stewart of Bixby, OK will also be a top contender when he unloads his Larson Marks Racing No.2. Stewart will look to upset his boss, Larson, for the victory at the Big O. In addition, Dylan Westbrook will get his chance to show the Outlaws the fast way around Ohsweken as he will have a 410ci motor under the hood of his popular No.47x.

    Dylan Westbrook won a record setting sixth-straight 360 Sprint Car Feature at Ohsweken.

    OHSWEKEN, Ont. – July 21, 2017 – A total of 129 cars packed the pit area for Christmas in July and Autograph Night presented by Jibs Action Sports at Ohsweken Speedway.

    When the final checkered flags waved, it was Dylan Westbrook, Mack DeMan, Derek Lemyre, Brandon Janssens, and Eric Maas who stood in Lucas Oil Victory Lane.

    KOOL KIDZ/CORR-PAK 360 SPRINT CARS

    A second-place starting position was all Dylan Westbrook needed to pick up his sixth straight win in the Kool Kidz-Corr/Pak 360 Sprint Cars division at Ohsweken Speedway. Westbrook took the lead from pole-sitter Alex Hill following a lap 1 caution and was able to hold it following a lap 2 red flag which saw Jamie Turner’s car flip on its side.

    Westbrook was only slowed by lapped traffic late in the race. He passed all but six of the 19 starters. Westbrook’s six consecutive wins set a new track record a Ohsweken. Glenn Styres, held the previous record of five straight victories.

    STRICKLAND’S GMC CRATE SPRINT CARS

    A thrilling 20-lap Strickland’s GMC Crate Sprint Cars Feature saw several racers challenge for the lead. Mike Thorne used his second-place starting position to lead early, but he was soon confronted by Holly Porter and Mack DeMan.

    A three-wide battle for the lead down the back straightaway on lap 15 saw Porter use the bottom of the racetrack, while DeMan and Thorne fought it out on the outside. Porter took the lead from Thorne on lap 16, but was only able to hold onto it for a short period of time as DeMan took the lead one lap later.

    A late caution set up a three-lap dash to the finish. When the checkered flew, DeMan prevailed and picked up his second consecutive win.

    MIDDLEPORT MECHANICAL THUNDER STOCKS

    For the first time since last season, someone other than Dave Bailey or Ryan Dinning was in Lucas Oil Victory Lane at the end of the 20-lap Middleport Mechanical Thunder Stock feature.

    Sixteenth starting Derek Lemyre was simply overpowering in his quest to knock off both Bailey and Dinning. Lemyre powered through the outside line to grab the lead on lap 3 and he never looked back.

    A lap 19 caution set up a showdown between Bailey and Lemyre with one to go. On the restart, Lemyre picked the high line and was able to fight off Bailey for his first win of the year.

    HRW AUTOMOTIVE MINI STOCKS

    Jason Dixon and Patrick Abrahamsson brought the field to green in the HRW Automotive Mini Stocks 15-lap Feature, but Davey Boughton led lap 1. A lap 2 caution opened the door for sixth-place starter Brandon Janssens, who used the outside line to lead lap 3.

    A scary moment on lap 7 saw B-Main Winner Dusty DeBoer viciously flip going into turn 3, bringing out the red. DeBoer was able to walk away from the crash, though the same thing could not be said for his #23 machine.

    Following the red, eleventh-place starter Nick Masi joined Janssens in a battle for the lead. A single file restart following a caution on lap 11 sealed the deal for Janssens, as he used the outside line once again to hold of a hard-charging Masi.

    GALE'S AUTO AFTERMARKET BOMBERS

    Jake Maas started third in the 12-lap Gale’s Auto Aftermarket Bomber Feature and he was able to use that to his advantage jumping out to an early lead.

    A caution on lap 5 tightened the field and set up an exciting restart. When green flew, Maas reassumed his lead, opening up a couple of car lengths lead on Tim Jamieson and Gillian Hils. Maas expertly navigated lapped traffic and held on for the win.

    The most exciting battle on the race track was for second place, as Hils and Jamieson were side-by-side for most of the feature. In the end, Hils was able to use the bottom of the race track to edge Jamieson for second. Lucas Smith and Alex Maas completed the top five.

    UP NEXT AT OHSWEKEN SPEEDWAY

    Ohsweken Speedway returns to action on Monday, July 24 and Tuesday, July 25 for two of the biggest shows of the season featuring Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series star Kyle Larson and four-time Knoxville Nationals champion, ‘The Dude’ Danny Lasoski.

    NASCAR star Kyle Larson (left) invades Ohsweken Speedway in a Sprint Car on Monday and Tuesday with four-time Knoxville Nationals champion 'The Dude' Danny Lasoski

    OHSWEKEN, Ont. – July 23, 2017 – Ohsweken Speedway is set to host two of its biggest event sof the season this Monday and Tuesday, July 24 and 25 night as Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series star Kyle Larson and four-time Knoxville Nationals champion Danny Lasoski are set to tackle the Six Nations 3/8-mile clay oval.

    On Monday, July 24 Larson and Lasoski take on Ohsweken’s best Sprint Car drivers in the Burger Barn Northern Summer Nationals for the Kool Kids-Corr/Pak 360 Sprint Cars. Also on the schedule is the prestigious 50-lap Brock Leonard Memorial for the Middleport Mechanical Thunder Stocks, a full points event for the Stickland’s GMC Crate Sprint Cars and the DIRTcar UMP Modifieds.

    Then, on Tuesday, July 25, Larson and Lasoski will take on the best Sprint Car drivers in the world when the World of Outlaws Craftsman® Sprint Car Series rolls into town for the Six Nations Showdown presented by Arrow Express. The 30-lap, $10,000-to-win showdown will pit two of the hottest Sprint Car drivers in the country against the tough Outlaw cast that includes eight-time champion Donny Schatz, rising star David Gravel and the ‘Big Cat’ Brad Sweet as well as mainstays Daryn Pittman, Shane Stewart, Jason Johnson, Kraig Kinser and Sheldon Haudenschild to name a few. Tuesday’s show is also the first round of the DIRTcar Sportsman Series Western Region and the HRW Automotive Mini Stocks will battle in twin 15-lap races.

    Larson is one of the hottest Sprint Car drivers in the world right now. The dirt ace turned NASCAR star has beaten the best Sprint Car drivers across the country this season. Larson topped the World of Outlaws at Nebraska’s Eagle Raceway in June, then knocked off the Arctic Car All-Star Circuit of Champions during Ohio Speedweek and followed it up by rattling off four consecutive wins against the Pennsylvania Posse during PA Speedweek. Larson is that good.

    "I am really excited to make my first trip to Canada and also to be racing a Sprint Car,” Larson said. “Ohsweken has always produced great racing with multiple lines so it should be fun to try and adapt to the track. Hopefully we can pick up a couple wins while I am there."

    Lasoski is no slouch either. The Dover, Missouri native is a four-time Knoxville Nationals champion, three of which came with Tony Stewart Racing. ‘The Dude’ is a former World of Outlaws regular and once held the Ohsweken qualifying track record until current full-time Outlaw Kraig Kinser knocked it down with a lap of 12.047 seconds on July 30, 2010.

    In addition to Larson and Lasoski, several top talents have already confirmed they will be in attendance at Ohsweken for the Northern Summer Nationals. Ohsweken point leader Dylan Westbrook, who has six wins this season, will be in attendance. Lucas Oil Empire Super Sprint point leader Jason Barney will also chase the top prize.

    Australian star Max Johnston has also made his way north to compete against Ohsweken’s best for Styres Racing. He earned a third-place finish on Friday night in his first night of action behind the wheel of the Styres No.0. Up and coming racer Joe Trenca of Clay, NY has also thrown his name into the ring for both nights of action.

    It’s two nights of action-packed racing at Ohsweken Speedway that you don’t want to miss. For additional event information, including tickets and camping, visit www.ohswekenspeedway.ca.

    NASCAR star Kyle Larson won from the pole, but had to overcome a very fast Parker Price-Miller to do so

    OHSWEKEN, Ont. – July 24, 2017 – An impressive 117 cars singed in across four divisions to compete in Ohsweken Speedway’s Burger Barn Northern Summer Nationals, including 31 cars in the Kool Kidz-Corr/Pak 360 Sprint Car field which featured NASCAR star Kyle Larson.

    When the checkered flag waved, it was Larson who claimed the win after a spectacular duel with Parker Price-Miller. Holly Porter scored a $1000 victory in the Ackland Insurance Clash of the Crates for the Strickland’s GMC Crate Sprint Cars, Ryan Beagle scored his first ever Middleport Mechanical Thunder Stocks win in the 50-lap Brock Leonard Memorial and Joel Dick completed the sweep of UMP Modified competition at Ohsweken in 2017 with his second win of the year.

    All Crate Sprint Car and Thunder Stock drivers in attendance were entered into a draw to win a new GMC 602 Crate Motor courtesy of Strickland’s GMC in Brantford. Thunder Stock driver Jay Liverance was the lucky winner.

    KYLE LARSON TOPS KOOL KIDZ/CORR-PAK 360 SPRINT CARS

    Kyle Larson started on the front row with Mitch Brown for the Kool Kidz-Corr/Pak 360 Sprint Car main event. Many had Larson, an Elk Grove, Calif. native pegged to lead flag-to-flag, but Brown quickly changed the conversation when he led the opening lap.

    Third-starting Parker Price-Miller of Kokomo, Ind. quickly made it a three-car battle for the lead while Larson retook the point on lap two. Price-Miller drove low into turn one and slid up in front of Larson in turn two to take the lead only to have Larson turn back underneath and lead on corner exit. Price-Miller didn’t make the same mistake twice as he executed a slidejob in turn four to take the lap three lead.

    “I knew he’d be good,” Larson said of Price-Miller in Victory Lane. “I’ve watched videos of him and he’s been really good here. His car had a lot of grip all night. I knew he’d be the one I’d have to beat. He got to the lead really quick and was ripping really hard up top.”

    From there, the dynamic top two pulled away from the rest of the field and worked into traffic by lap seven. On lap nine, both cars were caught behind slower traffic and had to alter their preferred lines. Price-Miller ran the top wherever possible, while Larson stumbled upon a fast bottom lane.

    “ It started getting really slick and slow off four and I actually made a mistake on the backstretch and ran the bottom on accident because I almost clipped the wall,” Larson said. “I gained time on him so I was like ‘okay, we can run down there’. Once we got to traffic I was able to work it and get by him on the bottom.”

    Larson made what ultimately turned out to be the winning pass in traffic when he returned the slidejob in turn two and took the lead from Price-Miller for good. He was able to pull away on lap 16 when Price-Miller missed his entry into turn three in the top groove, but the lapped traffic forced Larson to remain sharp.

    Larson took the white flag out in front of the field and raced down the backstretch to the checkered flag, but the caution waved for the first time before he could claim the win when Tom Huppunen spun at the top of turn three. A one-lap dash settled the finish and Larson ran the top perfectly to claim the win.

    “It’s an awesome racetrack,” Larson said. “This is one of the most fun tracks I’ve been to. It’s super slick, technical. The moisture was basically off the track, so you had to find that. I had a lot of fun racing with Parker.”

    Price-Miller, the reigning Canadian Sprint Car Nationals winner after his victory last September, was happy with his second-place finish but was clear he aspired to beat the NASCAR star. Price-Miller returned to action in the Hill’s Racing No.67x after he was involved in a wreck on Friday night where he suffered a minor injury to his wrist.

    “I really wanted that one just because Kyle’s the best there is out there and it would be really cool to beat him,” Price-Miller said. “My guys gave me a great car and they fixed a lot of stuff from Friday night. I’m still a little soar and my arm kind of gets banged up racing, but you don’t think about it. It’s still a good night, but I like to win. We’re always good at Ohsweken, so we’ll try again tomorrow with the 410.”

    On the final lap, the battle for third shook up the finish. Brewerton, NY driver and current Lucas Oil Empire Super Sprint point leader Jason Barney restarted in third, but was involved in contact with Dylan Westbrook in turn one. Barney suffered a flat tire and damaged wheel, but limped the car to a ninth-place finish.

    Westbrook was able to avoid serious contact and finished third. With the third-place finish, the Scotland, Ont. teenager’s six-race win streak at Ohsweken was snapped.

    “I’m not sure if he caught the wall first or if he slowed down real quick and I couldn’t get on the brakes quick enough to get around him,” Westbrook said of the last lap collision. “It kind of sucks. I think he probably would have beat us, but it’s still good to come home in third.”

    Westbrook is now set to make his first start with the World of Outlaws Craftsman® Sprint Car Series in the Arrow Express Six Nations Showdown on Wednesday night.
    “I’m really excited. It’s going to be my first time ever in a 410,” Westbrook said. “It’s going to be a really cool experience, so we’ll have some fun with it and hope for the best.”

    Brown finished in fourth while Bradford, Pa’s Jared Zimbardi rounded out the top-five. Ryan Susice was the Hard Charger of the race. He advanced from the dead last starting position, 24th, to finish 6th.

    Larson, Price-Miller, Danny Lasoski of Dover, Mo. and Ryan Coniam of Denver, Co. earned heat race wins and Max Johnston of Sydney, Australia won the B-Main.

    PORTER SCORES WIN IN ACKLAND INSURANCE CLASH OF THE CRATES

    The Strickland’s GMC Crate Sprint Cars faced a unique, special event format for the Ackland Insurance Clash of the Crates. The field was split into two groups and Timed Hot Laps set the field for twin 15-lap Features. The top-four finishers in each Feature qualified to the 8-lap, $1000-to-win Clash of the Crates. Shone Evans and Holly Porter set fast times in their respective groups to gain the pair of pole starting positions.

    In the first Feature, Evans grabbed the early lead despite a trio of early cautions. When the race hit full speed, Evans stayed up front until Mack DeMan took the lead off a lap seven restart. DeMan pulled away to half straightaway lead until the caution waved on the final lap. DeMan was perfect again on the restart to claim the win over Evans, Ryan Hunsinger and Jesse McDonald.

    The second Feature brought a thrilling battle up front between Porter and second-starting Mike Thorne. The two drivers raced side-by-side, exchanging the lead several times, until lap 11 when Porter was forced to brake behind a car about to be lapped. Thorne was able to pull away by eight car lengths to drive off to the win ahead of Porter, Michael Summer of Warsaw, Ind. and 15-year-old rookie Josh Hansen of Beamsville, Ont.

    The eight-driver Clash of the Crates rolled on to the track before the main event for the Kool Kidz-Corr/Pak 360 Sprint Cars. Thorne grabbed the lead from the pole, but DeMan attempted a slidejob in the opening corner to try and take over the point. Thorne evaded the action to lead the opening lap before Porter got by both driver to take the lead on lap two. At the halfway mark, Porter had gained a half straightaway advantage and maintained it to the finish to score the $1000 payday ahead of DeMan, Hunsinger, Thorn and McDonald.

    BEAGLE GETS FIRST MIDDLEPORT MECHANICAL THUNDER STOCK WIN

    The Middleport Mechanical Thunder Stocks ran their longest and most prestigious race of the season in the Brock Leonard Memorial. The race also saw several out of town drivers in attendance for the race, which doubled as the first round of the Duel on the Dirt series.

    Third-starting Ryan Dinning drove to the lead on the opening lap after Dave Bailey and Jay Liverance had brought the field to the green flag. Liverance battled early for second with Frankie Turkey Jr. until Turkey’s car broke on lap 10 to bring out the first caution.

    On the restart, Ryan Beagle battled door-to-door with Dinning for the point position and eventually wrestled it away on lap 17 and cleared Dinning one lap later. A lap 18 caution slowed the race again and allowed Dave Small to make his move forward.

    Over the next 32 laps, including on a lap 36 restart, Beagle continuously fought off Small’s challenges which routinely saw him try to cross lanes behind Beagle, who was married to the bottom lane. With six laps to go, Small’s move nearly worked when Beagle slipped half a groove in turn four, but the young driver recovered in turn one to break Small’s momentum and hold the lead.

    It proved to be the difference as Beagle drove his first career Middleport Mechanical Thunder Stock victory over Small, Dinning, Ken Sargent and Christopher Hale. Dereck Lemyre, Dinning, and Bailey won qualifying heats. Jason Fontaine won the B-Main.

    JOEL DICK COMPLETES UMP MODIFIED SWEEP

    The DIRTcar UMP Modifieds were back at Ohsweken for their second visit of the year. The field was composed entirely of drivers who race primarily at South Buxton Raceway located in Merlin, Ont. After Joel Dick of Leamington, Ont. and Joe Brosseau of Merlin, Ont. won qualifying heats, the two drivers lined-up on the front row for the 20-lap main event.

    Dick got an excellent jump off the initial start and left Brosseau to battle Tim Richardson of Comber, Ont. for second. A pair of cautions on laps five and seven were the only thing that slowed or challenged Dick as the veteran driver dominated the main event. Dick had no issues navigating through slower traffic over the final five laps and drove to the win by over six seconds to complete the sweep of UMP Modified events at Ohsweken in 2017.

    Brosseau earned a hard-fought runner-up spot ahead of Blenheim, Ont.’s Brian Speelman. Richardson and JJ Beaulieu of Chatham, Ont. rounded out the top-five.

    Logan Schuchart won a $10,000 pay cheque in the World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series Six Nations Showdown on Tuesday night.

    OHSWEKEN, Ont. – July 25, 2017 – Ohsweken Speedway was jammed with a packed crowd as the World of Outlaws Craftsman® Sprint Car Series invaded for the Arrow Express Six Nations Showdown.

    The DIRTcar Sportsman tour was also in attendance for the first race on the Western Region’s schedule while the HRW Automotive Mini Stocks battled in twin 15-lap Features. When the dust settled, Hanover, Pennsylvania’s Logan Schuchart scored his first career World of Outlaws win at Ohsweken, upsetting defending race winner Donny Schatz of Fargo, North Dakota in the process.

    Brad Rouse of St. Catharine’s claimed the DIRTcar Sportsman tour victory while teammates Bobby Tolton of Guelph and Brandon Crumbie of Beeton won the HRW Automotive Mini Stock Features.

    Logan Schuchart Takes a Bite Out of Donny Schatz to Win Six Nations Showdown

    Logan Schuchart hunted down Donny Schatz in heavy lapped traffic and then dominated the second half of the Six Nations Showdown at Ohsweken Speedway for his fourth World of Outlaws Craftsman® Sprint Car Series win of 2017 on Tuesday night.

    The victory was a much-needed confidence boost for Schuchart and his Shark Racing team who had struggled of late. The slick Ohsweken surface was exactly to the liking of the Hanover, Pa. native in the Outlaws only visit to Canada this season.

    “I love these type of racetracks, not just because we ran well on it tonight. I love slick racetracks,” Schuchart said in Victory Lane. “I love when you have to drive the car straight and smooth. I feel like it makes it fun. Obviously if you’re not running good it’s not fun, but if you can glide around the racetrack, be smooth and have forward drive, it’s fun.”

    Schuchart had all of those ingredients at Ohsweken. While Schatz grabbed an early lead from the pole and drove away from the majority of the field, Schuchart was the only driver able to keep pace. The top duo wandered into heavy lapped traffic by lap nine and as Schatz was forced to give up his preferred line on the bottom to move past a slower car, Schuchart capitalized when he found room on the bottom of turn two and down the backstretch to take the lead.

    “I was having trouble catching Donny when we were in an open run,” Schuchart admitted. “It wasn’t until we got to lapped traffic, I felt like, that some lapped cars made him go where he didn’t want to. I could just move around a little bit more than he could and go through the middle. When some lapped cars took his line away, I just felt like I was able to get the forward drive off the corners to get by him.”

    One lap after Schuchart took the lead, the caution flag waved for Sheldon Haudenschild, who suffered a flat right-rear tire. He made the repairs in the work area and returned to the rear of the field. Schuchart held the point on the lap nine restart while Greg Wilson and Kyle Larson battled tooth and nail for the third spot.

    Schuchart led the top-five into traffic again on lap 16 of the 30-lap main event, but was able to run the bottom the lane the whole time to continue pulling away from Schatz. His advantage with 10 laps to go was 2.6 seconds but grew each lap until he achieved the eventual 5.984-second margin of victory.

    Schatz was openly disappointed he was not able to capitalize on his pole starting position to claim his 16th win of the season. His runner-up finish was his 40th top-five finish of the season.

    “We got beat,” Schatz stated bluntly. “Logan was really good. He could go all over. Obviously, we got to traffic and you have to move around. We did that a little bit and he found the better groove. Those guys rolled pretty good and I couldn’t stay down there very well. I had to roll the middle and do what I could. These guys did a great job, Logan was just that good tonight.”

    Schuchart was ecstatic to score his fourth Outlaw win of the season and to beat the current Series point leader to achieve the feat.
    “Anytime you can beat Donny Schatz on any type of racetrack, but especially a slick racetrack, it’s saying something,” Schuchart said. “We’ve had a car for a while that’s given us some trouble and this is the first night on this new XXX (chassis) and it was hooked up on this slick surface. I felt like it was just gliding around the racetrack and I was just guiding it.”

    Wilson rounded out the podium finishers after holding off Kyle Larson in the second half of the race. It was Wilson’s fifth top-five finish of the season on a surface he raved about in his post-race interview.

    “We’ve been struggling pretty bad lately, so I can’t thank the folks at Hercules Tires, Ohio Logistics, DNC Hydraulics, Gear Alloy and Weikel Sportswear for staying with us,” Wilson said. “This is always an amazing show. (Track Owner) Glenn (Styres) and the whole crew gave us an excellent racetrack. It’s fun. I wish some other tracks in the country would take a look at this. I realize we’re not going 100mph, but there’s racing all over the racetrack and that’s what it’s about.”

    Larson settled for a fourth-place finish and 19-year-old Dylan Westbrook, who was making his first career Outlaw start in his first night with a 410ci motor, rounded out the top-five after starting 16th. Jacob Allen was the KSE Hard Charger award winner after he advanced 13 positions from 24th to 11th.

    Brad Sweet was the night’s fast qualifier with a lap of 12.280 seconds. Sweet, Schuchart, Larson and Wilson all won heat races in some of the most thrilling qualifying action all season. Schatz won the Craftsman Club Dash from the pole, but had to take the lead back from Brent Marks midway through the race to gain the pole. Kraig Kinser came out on top of a three-car battle for the lead with Jared Zimbardi and Steve Lyons to win the Last Chance Showdown.

    Brad Rouse Dominates DIRTcar Sportsman Tour

    The DIRTcar Sportsman tour rolled into Ohsweken 33 cars strong for the first race on the Western Region’s schedule. Brad Rouse of St. Catharine’s, Ont. dominated the 30-lap Feature, leading 28 laps after starting on the pole to score the victory.

    “The luck of the draw and starting up front really helps with these guys,” Rouse said in Victory Lane. “Like I said before, we have the best in the business around here. The guys put a great car underneath me again tonight and I want to thank everybody for that.”

    Rouse and Rob Knapp from Niagara Falls, Ont. brought the field to the green flag for main event. Knapp led the opening two circuits before Rouse pulled alongside him and drove off with the lead.
    The polesitter didn’t get very far thought before he was slowed by a lap four caution when Luke Carleton spun in turn four. On the ensuing restart, Rouse got a much better jump than the initial green flag and pulled away from the field while James Henry and Matt Farnham battled for second.

    Rouse pulled away to a lead of more than two second by the halfway point while Farnham and Henry couldn’t separate for each other and continued their battle. Rouse worked into some lapped traffic on lap 14, but a caution on lap 15 when Tyler Puchalski spun in turn three gave him a clear track once again.

    That was bad news for the rest of the field as Rouse anchored his No.18r right on the bottom of the racetrack against the infield wall to take the short way around the very slick track. The all-time Ohsweken Sportsman wins leader, Jay Mallory raced into the top-five from the 10th starting spot on lap 16 and battled with Darrell Farrway, who made his way up front as well after starting 15th.

    Over the final 10 laps, the race ran caution-free and Rouse drove to the win by 2.678 seconds, or what looked like a straightaway. Henry claimed the second position and Farraway was a strong third-place finisher.

    “It was even all the way across,” Rouse said of the track’s slick surface. “You just had to pick your line and stick to it.”

    Racing alongside the World of Outlaws Craftsman® Sprint Car Series meant the Sportsman drivers enjoyed the opportunity to race in front of a packed crowd.

    “Brad was definitely the class of the field,” said second-place finisher James Henry of Niagara Falls, NY. “This racetrack’s awesome. A big crowd, it’s awesome to be here.”

    After starting in the middle of the pack, Farraway was ecstatic about his third-place effort.

    “I’m totally excited about it,” Farraway said. “We changed carburetors after hot laps because we had a miss. We were still having a miss for the Feature, but maybe that’s what helped me out to keep it down low. To finish behind these guys is one heck of a job. They’re the best in the business.”

    Farnham and Mark Chiddy rounded out the top-five.

    Crumbie, Tolton Claim HRW Automotive Mini Stock Wins

    Timed Hot Laps determined the starting lineups for the HRW Automotive Mini Stock twin 15-lap Features with the odd numbered qualifiers in Feature 1 and the even numbered qualifiers in Feature 2.

    Rookie pilot Nick Masi started on the pole for the first Feature and jumped out to an early lead and held the point position through restarts on laps four and nine. Tim DeBoer threw everything he had at Masi in the second half of the race, running the inside lane and nosed ahead of Masi with two laps to go. The caution waved on lap 14 when Rob Sauder spun in turn three, setting up a one-lap dash.

    DeBoer restarted as the leader with Masi to his outside. When the two drivers raced into turn three and made contact at the bottom of the track. Both cars stayed straight, but slowed enough to allow third-place Brandon Crumbie to drive around the top in turn four and claim the win. Masi settled for second while Mark Bazuin benefitted from the incident and finished third.

    In the second Feature, Bobby Tolton started outside the front row and jumped to an early advantage with teammate Dave Crumbie running in second. Tolton pulled away to a convincing lead in a race that ran green flag until the final lap. Behind Tolton and Dave Crumbie, Gary Hodgson and Jon Janssens fought side by side for third. After Janssens took the spot, Hodgson was locked into a three-car battle for fourth with Matt Nuell and Jonathan Ayrton.

    The caution flag halted the action on lap 14 after Rob Twitchett spun in turn two to set up a one-lap shootout for the second straight race. Tolton pulled away again on the restart and left Crumbie and Janssens to solve the discussion for second. Janssens effort fell just short as Crumbie maintained enough momentum up top to claim the runner-up spot.
