Peterborough Hyundai Mini-Stocks – Tonight we started off with some of strongest and toughest mini-stock racers. The crowd watched in awe as Tyler Junkin (#41) pushed from the back of the pack to the front in no time with a fair size lead. Darryl Fice (#44) however closed that gap, but was just a bit too late and took second place. Tyler Junkin(#41) had a chance to mention that it’s starting to get harder to stay out in front from all the penalty weight; however he still earned himself a hat trick as he won both the heats and the feature. Daryl Fice(#44) took second, Alex Lees(#07) got third, Cole McFadden(#20) found fourth and Ember Junkin(#19) got fifth.
Perry Springs Renegade Trucks – The most action we have seen all season from the trucks tonight as Perry Spring Racing (#29) started out with a fantastic lead, however Andy McCann could only sit back and watch for so long before he took it to the outside and made a huge move putting him in the lead. Tiffany Vandebelt also brought in her recently built truck showing that the series is starting to get momentum this season. Andy McCann(#12) took the checkered, Perry Spring Racing(#29) grabbed second and Bill O’Harra(#6) got third.
Battlefield Equipment Four-Fun – Quite a bit of stiff competition put on a show as you saw the Farm Bro Racing Team out in front, consisting of Ryan Oosterholt (#79), Chris Mulders (#99), and Ryan Baben (#8) and they did not let anyone join their trio in the front. Tiffany Vandebelt showed M her girl power as she maneuvered her way out from last position to a nice finish. Ryan Oosterholt (#79), Chris Mulders (#99), and Ryan Baben (#8) took the top three spots, followed by Griffin Powell(#13) in fourth and the girl power that is Tiffany Vandebelt(#88) took fifth.
Vanguard Self-Storage Late Models – When the big boys come out to play everyone gets excited as Todd Delisle(#22W) blasted out of the starting gate and earned himself a commanding lead. Most of the action was the fight over third as Tyler Liscum(#14), Jack Horner(#31), and Crow Racing (#88) were going two and three wide in the corners and straightaways After a quick caution, Tyler Liscum(#14) saw his opportunity and took second position from under his rival Bryan Sudsburry(#29). Todd Delisle(#22W) took the checkered flag followed by Tyler Liscum(#14) and then Bryan Sudsburry(#29) grabbed third.
Some bumping and grinding in the front of the pack as the Legends brought it like they always do. Adam Cuthbertson(#79) fought his way to the front and then held onto it as he was hunted down by Rick Cook(#15) and rival Andy Warbutton(#24). Near the end of the race there was action left right and center at the front of the pack as we saw some skillful driving by Rick Cook(#15) who took first, Nicholas Ledson(#15N) who stormed into second, Andy Warbutton(#24) snaked into third and we watched as Adam Cuthberston(#79) and current points leader fall into fourth place beside his brother Wes Cuthberston(#12) in fifth.
