CORNWALL, ONT – Cornwall Motor Speedway promoter Raymond Lavergne hopes that Mother Nature will be kind to him this coming Sunday as a busy evening of racing is scheduled with the visit of the Lightning Sprint group as well as the 2nd round of the Cindy Ladouceur Memorial Series that will be combined with the Danny Lefebvre Memorial during the 25-lap event for the Mini-Stock. A full show is on the card in the other divisions on this night sponsored by Speedy Glass.
The Lightning Sprints Series will make their first of two stops at the speedway this Sunday evening, again a solid group of drivers that includes the recent Empire Super Sprints feature winner at the track, Jordan Poirier, current points leader in Eric Sundborg, Guillaume Nedeirer, Pascal Levesque, Tomy Moreau many more will travel to Cornwall to compete in the 25-lap event.
The second round of the Cindy Ladouceur Memorial Series is also on the card and will be combined with the Danny Lefebvre Memorial making it even more special for the Mini-Stock drivers that will run the 25-lap event. A field in the 20s is expected with a good purse and extra laps on the line!
The other four divisions will be in action with regular feature events, as expected the competition is tough in the Modified division with defending track champion Chris Raabe leading the way in front of Danny Johnson. We have seen three different winners so far with Corey Wheeler, Luke Whitteker and David Hebert, will it be one of these five drivers or someone else will come on top in the 30-lap event?
In the Tracy Wheeler Assist2Sell Sportsman division, Shane Pecore is leading but there is a few drivers looking to take the top spot in Justin Lalancette, Tristan Draper and Tyler Givogue, they will have a 25-lap event. Again the Alexandria Home Hardware Pro-Stock class is always entertaining and offers very close racing with both Ghislain Valade and George Renaud sharing the lead with Kevin Fetterly Jr being 5 points behind, the Pro-Stock are also scheduled for 25 laps. To complete the evening will be the Polar Sound DJ Services Novice Sportsman, looking to expand the field in the coming weekends, the division holds the only multi-time winner so far this season in Kurtis Cayer, but he had to work hard for both of his victories.
The pit gate will open at 3pm with a cost of $25 and the general admission will open their doors at 4:30pm with a cost of $13 for adults, $7 for Seniors and 2$ for kids 16 years old and under. The first qualifying race is slated for 6:30pm.
