RACE RESULTS AND WRAP
Race Wrap: Kiddie Rides Night
HYDRAULICS PLUS BANDOLEROS - BOUDREAU BACK TO VICTORY LANE
Chipman, New Brunswick’s Cole Boudreau returned to Scotia Speedworld Victory Lane after two races with a feature win on Kiddie Night. Boudreau, who took a spectacular heat race tumble the week prior, drove his #00 State Farm Insurance Bandolero to the win over ’11 titlist Jarrett Butcher (Porter’s Lake) and ’11 top freshman Cole Tanner (Shubenacadie), who also rebounded following a tough week in Week Four. Braden Langille (Shubenacadie) took the fourth place spot in the feature over leading rookie in the division, Craig MacDonald (Waverley).
Langille and MacDonald began the evening with heat race wins as they each picked up ten championship points right off the top on Kiddie Night. Boudreau holds a 14 point lead with the next event for the young guns taking place on July 13th for Hydraulics Plus Night.
ACE LUMBERMART LIGHTNING - RICHIE MOORE ENDS SMITH STREAK
The winning streak of Jorden Smith (Lakeside) came to a screeching halt Friday night when Richie Moore (Shubenacadie) pulled into victory lane in his first ACE Lumbermart Lightning start of 2012. Moore, driving the car formerly owned by Mike “The Outlaw” Umlah (Shubenacadie), who wasn’t in attendance on Friday night, drove to victory over Marc MacMillan (Glenholme), who overcame a rough start to the season to finish second over “Crazy” Craig Cordeau (Windsor), Mike Brown (Urbania) and Smith. Smith was shown the rear after his involvement in a caution near the halfway mark of the event.
Moore took the checkers in Heat One on Kiddie Night while Mark Campbell (Halifax) picked up where the Herald’s Jenn Harrie left off from the week prior by winning the high point heat. Up next for the Lightning class is Friday night for MOPAR Express Night.
STRICTLY HYDRAULICS LEGENDS - BLENKHORN DODGES CARNAGE, WINS FIRST FEATURE OF 2012
It’s been a long road for Dylan Blenkhorn (Truro) this season in the Strictly Hydraulics Legends class. From a first week wreck to a loose bumper on Media Night, the 2012 campaign just hasn’t gone the way of the ’11 champion - until Friday. Blenkhorn, in the #67 Champions Bar and Grill Legend, took his first win of the season in a rough and tumble night for the popular division, which saw numerous big wrecks between the heats and the main feature. Finishing behind Blenkhorn was the Wooden Door Bistro Rookie of the Year leader Cole Butcher (Porter’s Lake), Richard Salter (Lower Burlington), Paul Blenkhorn (Truro) and Derek MacCallum (Lower Sackville), who edged out “Miss Rawdon Rocket” Emily Meehan for the fifth place spot.
Blenkhorn began the evening by winning the high point heat while Danny Harvey (Lantz) took the win in the other qualifier. The race featured Ryan Mackintosh (Amherst), who drove the #61 Maritime Auto Supply Legend car out of the MacLean Motorsports stable. Mackintosh, who has been racing out of the Charlotte, NC area for the past few years, was involved in the big accident of the evening which saw Jeff Cruickshank (Hantsport) go for a wild ride over the #61 car. All drivers involved were alright. The next race for the Legend class is Friday night during MOPAR Express Lane Night.
JACK DANIEL’S TRUCKS - BROWN BECOMES FIFTH WINNER OF 2012
Five races. Five different feature winners. If there was any doubt that the Jack Daniel’s Truck class wasn’t one of the most competitive divisions at Scotia Speedworld, think again! Vernon Brown (Antrim) became the fifth different driver to win a Truck main feature this season when he put his #80 Shady Brook Enterprises Chevrolet in the spotlight on Friday. Brown outdueled Dan Smith (Lower Sackville) for the win while 2011 champ JP Arsenault (Church Point), Kyle Gammon (Lower Sackville) and Derek Sutherland (Dartmouth) completed the top five. Gammon was victorious in the 10-lap qualifier.
With five different winners in five races, it is now up to Jason Fenton (Dartmouth) and Ryan Goldsmith (Bridgewater) to extend the streak this week during MOPAR Express Lane Night on Friday evening.
DARTMOUTH DODGE SPORTSMAN - THREE FOR THE FOUR, BOUTILIER WINS ON KIDDIE NIGHT
Aaron Boutilier (Porter’s Lake) picked right up where he left off last Sunday by taking his second consecutive Dartmouth Dodge Sportsman Series victory and third on the season Friday on Kiddie Night. Boutilier, in the #4 CARSTAR Collision Center Ford, had to pass and hold off sophomore Brently Pirri (Three Fathom Harbour), who had a career run in second place in the 38-lap affair. Harry Ross White (Noel Road), who drove in a renumbered #54 car for Phil Barkhouse Jr (Beaverbank), finished third in the feature, followed by Fred Schofield (Windsor) and Larry Fisher (Porter’s Lake).
Heat wins on the night went to Pirri and HOSS. The Dartmouth Dodge Sportsman Series will be in the “Express Lane” Friday night as Dartmouth Dodge Presents the MOPAR Express Lane Night on Friday.
