LAFARGEVILLE, NY – Cory Winters of Finch, On is 2 for 2 for the season after picking up the win at Caprara’s Can Am Motorsports Park here this past Saturday.
Nathan Berry and last week’s winner Brian Comeau would bring the 17 car field to green for the 15 lap feature go with Berry blasting into the lead which he would hold for the first several circuits. Comeau would reel Berry in though and looked to be on cruise control building up a comfortable lead. Berry would see Paul Billings eventually sneak by with Winters sitting fourth.
Lap 14 would see the yellow fly for Justin Saunders. Comeau would mistakenly think the race had been concluded and left the track surface.
Two restarts later it would be Winters fending off Billings for the win with Berry third. Steve Billings of Merrickville, On and Denzil Billings Jr. Would round out the fast five.
Tim Charland would claim the 50’s, 60’s class win over Darrell Wilson.
Pit notes….heat wins to Berry, Billings Jr. And Wilson….Denzil Billings Jr. looked strong in his first completed race having two previous DNS….Tom Belewich unable to start the feature due to engine issues…John Stanley having drivetrain problems in the feature….
