BRIGHTON, Ont. – September 23, 2016 – The 12th annual PartSource Applefest Shootout presented by Cool 100, Image Factor, Lucas Oil and Coca-Cola kicked off with a full night of action at Brighton Speedway last Friday night. The final points night of the season determined track championships in six divisions. The DIRTcar Sportsman Invitational headlined the evening. In total, 162 cars were signed in for competition.

St. Catharine’s, Ont. native Cody McPherson (No.7 St.Louis Bar & Grill) drove through the top-10 to claim Friday’s DIRTcar Sportsman Invitational. Polesitter Jonathan Ferguson (No.44 Splash Well Drilling) of Prescott, Ont. led early and through a handful of cautions.

Luke Carleton (No.2c Van Mil Landscaping) took the lead on lap six before Ferguson retook the point one lap later. Behind them, McPherson, the Merrittville Champion was on the move, racing in to second from his 10th starting spot on lap 14. Two laps later, McPherson took the lead from Ferguson in turn four and never looked back. He led the final 20 laps and overcame a late charge from Humberstone Speedway champion Brad Rouse (No.18r Rick’s Delivery) over the final five laps to claim the win.

Potts Claims Pro Late Model Win and Championship

Brighton native Phil Potts (No.29 Vanderlaan) entered the night with a 45-point lead over Charlie Sandercock (No.57 Bellevue Fabricating) in the Vanderlaan Building Products Pro Late Model standings. The final point night saw 23 cars sign in for competition with a handful of outside invaders set to battle the home track regulars.

Sandercock, who started third, led the opening lap and began to pull away until a lap 11 caution. The ninth-starting Potts took matters in to his own hands to secure the championship. Potts used the restart to regain track position and moved in to second on lap 13.

Sandercock held off Potts on one final restart on lap 21, but as the two raced through traffic with two laps to go, Potts managed to dart past Sandercock in turns one and two. He led the final three laps to earn his fifth win of the season and claim the championship. Sandercock, Brandon Mowat (No.46 Target Fabrication), Andrew Hennessy (No.87 Bellevue Fabricating) and Adam Turner (No.92 Village Variety) rounded out the top-five.

Comeau Tops Vintage Finale

The Eastern Ontario Vintage Stock Car Club rolled in to Brighton for its second visit and the championship-deciding race. Polesitter and point leader John Stanley (No.2) jumped out to the early lead, but was slowed by a pair of cautions on laps 2 and 3. Paul Pekkonen (No.19) took the lead following the restart while Brian Comeau (No.7) was on the move to second past Stanley by lap 7.

Comeau caught Pekkonen for the lead on lap 11, but the final yellow on lap 12 slowed the pace. On the restart Comeau made no mistakes as he drove past Pekkonen in the outside lane to claim the victory. Stanley was crowned the series champion while Tim Hagerty (No.4) was the champion of the 1950s-60s style sub-division.

Turner Drives Purchase Ride To Pro Stock Victory

After Wade Purchase suffered a broken elbow in August, Adam Turner offered to help him finish out the Brighton Automotive Pro Stock season. Turner completed the task perfectly on Friday night, winning the final points race of the season for the division in the No.88 Independent Alternator and Starter Monte Carlo.

Art Rodgers (No.38 Dunford’s of Havelock) led the opening two laps until a spin on the second circuit. That gave the lead to Turner who paced a four-car breakaway from the rest of the 26-car field. After a spin in turn one and two involving Carissa Burrows (No.02 7&25 Tire) and James Ellis (No.75) on lap 18, Turner survived the green-white-checkered finish to claim the third win of the season for the Purchase team ahead of Doug Anderson (No.72 Hunt’s Landscape Service), Brian Cross (No.08 Sobey’s), Justin Ramsay (No.03 Empey Tire) and Kyle Pelrine (No.47x Semenuk’s Roofing).

French Tops Comp 4s

The Bill’s Johns Comp 4s saw their biggest field of the season with 31 drivers signed in to the pit area for the invitational event. Entering the night, Tyler French (No.0 Empey Tire) had already sewn up the track championship, but had plans to go out on top. Pole starter Adam Flieler (No.11 Double D Sports Bar) led the opening lap until French got an excellent jump on a lap two restart

From there, French pulled away to a straightaway lead over his brother Josh French (No.08), but had it erased by a caution on lap 14. The restart only allowed Tyler French to regain his composure as he was flawless over the final six laps to claim his seventh win of the season. Josh French and Joe McNichols (No.14x) rounded out the podium. 

Kotsilidis, MacGregor Win Stinger Features

Del MacGregor (No.19 R Ward Construction) claimed his third win of the season in Quinte Septic Super Stinger action and his fourth career division championship. MacGregor’s battled over the final three laps with Arthur McCauley (No.99 East Side Tire) and Jorden Pickell (No.93 Sowerby Signs) for the lead and emerged with the win and the title.

In Quinte Septic Junior Stinger action, Jim Kotsilidis (No.11) led from the drop of the green flag and paced a tough field for all 12 laps to finish the season on a winning note. It was his first career victory. He held off Brittany Golden (No.85 Rapid Rad) over the final two laps, who’s second-place finish gave her the division championship in her rookie season.
