Night 1 of the Labour Day Classic

The Southern Ontario Sprints invaded Brighton Speedway Saturday night to send the last long weekend of summer off in style.

The winged warriors headlined an action-packed doubled header presented by Ultramar Parkland Fuels, Rock 107 and Mystical Distributing featuring the Canadian Modifieds, Thunder Stocks, Comp 4/Mini-stocks and Stinger classes.

Westbrook wins night 1

Polesitter No. 91 Ryan Turner dominated over half of the Southern Ontario Sprints caution riddled 25-lap main event.  A series of yellow flags didn’t deter Turner from taking off at the drop of each green flag as a quick and determined No. 47x Dylan Westbrook worked his way up and nestled behind the 91.  Coming off a win the night before at Ohsweken Speedway, Westbrook was determined to taste victory again.  On the 16th time by he snapped up the lead and took off to victory lane, leaving Turner to settle for hard earned second.  No. 9 Steve Lyons was third, No. 1-10 Jake Brown was fourth and No. 10 Mitch Brown fifth.  No. 21 Kyle Phillips won the Sprints 4-lap dash for cash.

Sandercock shines in modified

It only took No. 99 Charlie Sandercock 7 laps to muscle his way up into the lead from is 12th starting position in the Bainer’s OilGARD Canadian Modified main event.  Subbing for Linc Brown, Sandercock wheeled the 99 effortlessly around in the track in the 25-lap affair, as division points leader No. 87 Andrew Hennessy pounded at the back door.  But Sandercock wasn’t letting Hennessy in.  Sandercock rode the inside to victory lane, with Hennessy in second.  No. 07 Curtis King was third, No. 12 Adam Whaley fourth and No. Doug O’Blenis fifth.  

Turner turns up another win

At the drop of the green flag No. 92 Adam Turner took off and never looked back in the Brighton Automotive Thunder Stock 20-lap event.  Turner was hooked up as No. 03 Justin Ramsay tried to intimidate him in the rear view.  Turner went on to score his second win of the season with Ramsay in second, No. 48. Adam Wells was third, No, 53 Wade Purchase fourth and No. 72 Doug Anderson fifth.

Galt and Moore victorious again

No. 11 Adam Flieler looked like he was going to secure his third win of the season in the Bill’s John’s Comp 4/Mini-stock feature Saturday night.  Flieler was flying when a lapped car cut in front of him and forced the 11 to the pits.  It put No. 52 Doug Galt in the lead and he sailed to victory lane for the second time this season.  No. 87 Mike Beaudrie was runner-up, No. 1 Brock Gregory was third, No. 17E Emily Peterson fourth and No. 43 Devon Kippen fifth.

No. 14m Matthew Moore won the mini-stock feature.

McAuley and Blight earn stinger wins

No. 37 Terry Blight pounced on the lead early in the Quinte Septic Junior Stinger 12-lap feature and cruised to victory lane.  No. 18 Carter Rhodes was second, No. 95 Ethan Schoep was third, No. 99 Alex Woods fourth and No. 25 Steve Darling fifth.

No. 99 Arthur McCauley took the lead at the drop of the green flag and flew to the checkered flag in the Quinte Septic Senior Stinger 12-lap event.  No. 1 Kyle Gregory was second, No. 42 Aiden Fletcher third, No. 01 Brandon Gregory fourth and No. 95 Chris Lammle was fifth.
