PORT COLBORNE, ONT – Jordan Poirier earned his first career New Humberstone Speedway checkered flag Sunday night as the St. Mathieu de Beloeil, Quebec native won the A-Main for the 360 Sprint Cars at the Port Colborne, Ontario facility. Binbrook, Ontario’s Liam Martin scored the victory in the Action Sprint Tour A-Main. “The Merlin Magician”, Steve Shaw from Merlin, Ontario won the main event in the JC Auto Thunderstocks.
