BRIGHTON, Ont. – The 6th Annual Weese Racing Anti-Bullying night was another resounding success at Brighton Speedway on Saturday night. Over 700 fans supported the cause by purchasing t-shirts to further the awareness of the No Bull campaign spearheaded by racer Caley Weese. A complete card of Vanderlaan Building Supply Pro Late Models, OilGard Anti-Rust Canadian Modifieds, Brighton Automotive Pro Stocks, Bill’s Johns Comp and Quinte Septic Stingers presented by McDougall Insurance and Financial as well as Pinty’s Delicious Foods.

Baldwin Back To Victory Lane

Steve Baldwin (No. 5) became the second driver to score multiple wins in the Vanderlaan Building Supply Pro Late Model division. Kyle Tasker (No. 17) and Caley Weese (No. 77) lined up on the front row for the 30 lap feature, however Cory Earl (No. 20) rocketed to the front and led the opening lap. Earl led the race until the first caution on lap 10.

On the ensuing restart both Earl and second place driver Charlie Sandercock (No. 57) were passed quickly by Phil Potts (No. 29) and Baldwin. The pair pulled away and raced side by side until Baldwin cleared Potts on lap 19. From there the Trenton driver cruised to his second win of the season over Potts, Earl, and Sandercock. Kyle Sopaz (No. 12) completed the top five.

Handley Handles The Competition

Since ending his two year winless drought Kraig Handley (No. 91) of Picton has been on a tear. He cruised to his third win of the season in the OilGard Anti-Rust Canadian Modifed division.

Leslie Turcotte-Mowat (No. 2) and Nathan Rinaldi (No. 3) led the field to green, however the race was quickly halted by a seven car pileup in turn one. On the restart Adam Whaley (No. 12) grab the lead and led the first 4 laps of the 25 lap feature. Both Shawn Gregory (No. 1) and Handley moved past Whaley and put on an exciting wheel to wheel race for much of the final 20 laps.

In the closing laps Handley edged ahead and drove to victory lane for the third time in the past month. Gregory finished a close second ahead of Curtis King (No. 07), point leader Andrew Hennessy (No. 87) and Justin Ramsay (No. 8).

Austin Powers To Win

Speed and a little luck factored in to Austin Reid’s (No. 85) second win of the season in the Brighton Automotive Pro Stocks feature. James Boyer (No. 6) and Steven Stachura (No. 69) started on the front row for the 20 lap race with both drivers spending time as leader. On lap 6 though point leader Doug Anderson (No. 72) took the top spot away. A restart two laps later propelled Justin Ramsay (No. 03) to the lead setting up a battle between the top two in the standings.

On lap 17 contact between the pair while battling for the win sent both drivers to the tail of the field. The skirmish sent Reid to the top spot where he led the final 3 laps for his second win in three weeks. Warren Mowat (No. 2) had a solid outing finishing second while Mike Freeman (No. 51), Wade Purchase (No. 53) and outside pole sitter Stachura completed the top five.

Matthew Finds More Success

Matthew Moore, of Port Hope, led all 15 laps in the Bill’s Johns Comp 4 feature in dominate fashion for his third win of the season. Moore started on the pole alongside Kevin Hertendy (No. 7) and was able to build up a sizeable advantage in the early stages of the event.

The race for second was the best battle on the track as Adam Wells (No. 48), Adam Fleiler (No. 11), point leader Tyler French (No. 0) and Jeff Humphry (No. 17) swapped spots repeatedly. The four drivers settled into positions two through five in the closing laps behind winner Moore.

Naylor and Wilkie Win Mechanics Races

The evening’s events also featured a pair of Mechanics races for the Canadian Modifieds and Comp 4’s. Each division ran 8 lap races. Adam Naylor (No. 07) won the Canadian Modified race in Curtis King’s car while Brandon Wilkie (No. 11) drove Adam Fleiler’s Comp 4 to victory.
