From Tommy Goudge (June 23, 2010) – The fifth round of Ohsweken Speedway’s Friday Night Thunder hits the track this Friday, June 25. This week’s event is presented by BS&B Radiator and features twin fifteen lap features for the ESSO Thunder Stocks, plus a full card of Corr/Pak Merchandising Sprint Cars, ESSO Thunder Stocks, ESSO Mini Stocks, and Bombers, plus Kids Box Car Races!
Kyle Moffit of South Dayton, NY finished third in the Corr/Pak Merchandising Sprint Car feature last week, and took over at the top of the championship standings as a result. Alton’s Keith Dempster came home second to feature winner Tom Huppunen, but he moved to second in the standings just five points behind Moffit. Dave Dykstra entered the evening as points leader, but missing the scales after the feature cost him a fifth place finish and the points lead. The Port Colborne driver now sits third, nine points out of first. “Tilbury Tornado” Kyle Patrick got another top ten last week and is fourth in the standings, followed by Campbellville’s Kevin Job, who finished fourth last week.
The ESSO Thunder Stock championship chase was also shaken up last Friday when Billy Bleich lost a tire during the feature and ended up ninth. The Port Robinson driver’s points lead was cut to just thirteen over Caledonia’s Lee Winger as a result. Winger finished third in the feature behind Cambridge driver Jamie Cox, and defending division champion Shayne Pierce of Welland. Cox now sits third in the standings, ahead of Stoney Creek driver Jeremy Bean, and Dave Bailey of Hagersville.
Trevor Goulding visited Engine Pro Racing Victory Lane again in ESSO Mini Stock action last Friday. The Welland resident has now claimed three out of the four features run so far in the division this season, and leads the points chase by twenty-seven over Kevin Hilborn of Brantford as a result. Craig Erskine is the only other driver in the division to claim a win this year, and sits third in the standings, followed by Paul Goodale, and Waterford driver Mark Thorne.
Karl Sault also claimed his third feature win of the season on Friday in the Bomber division. The Dundas driver now enjoys a fifty point lead over John Cote and Dave Patton, who are tied for second. Kacey Huffman is currently fourth, while Shawn Ireland and the Chechalk team are tied for fifth.
