Baldwin, Wadforth, Ramsay, Bailey and Tufford Start the Month of June in the Win Column

For Immediate Release: Brighton Speedway Race Report 

It was a windy Saturday night at the dirt track, but the sun was shining, and the on-track action was hot for Lambert Construction and Concrete along with Brighton Tire & King Auto Campbellford night as fans came out to cheer on their favourite drivers.  This Saturday night was fan appreciation and fans were able head on to the track and meet their favourite drivers at intermission for autographs, tricks and treats!   With the wind blowing strong all day track crews worked hard to put as much water on the surface as they could, but the conditions lead to a slick racing surface right from the start of the heats for the drivers to tackle. 

 

First feature to take to the slick surface was the Bill’s John’s Comp 4 division. #19 Shannon White and #15 Josh Bogaard started from the pole position for the initial green flag how ever it was forth starting #42 Aidan Fletcher who made early moves and would take the lead by lap 3.  Fletcher would look strong until lap 12 when #44 Tommy Bailey would make the pass for the top spot.  Fletcher would continue to challenge for the lead, but Bailey would hold on taking the checker flag for the second week in a row.  Fletcher would finish second followed by #20 Cody Sager, Bogaard and #37 Terry Blight. 

 

The Vanderlaan Building Products Late Model 30 lap feature hit the track next, and it was the #57 Charlie Sandercock and #3 Nathan Rinaldi starting from the front row.   Sandercock would jump out to the early lead and #46 Brandon Mowat would mount an early charge on the high side to chase down Sandercock.  A number of early cautions would pit the two drivers’ side by side on the restart as the two battled back and forth for the restart.  There was a lot of passing throughout the fields as cars moved backwards and forwards with in the top 6 positions and currents points leader #5 Steve Baldwin would jump into the mix for three car battle for the lead.   With Mowat in the lead there a turn 4 incident between Baldwin and Sandercock lead to a late race caution with two laps to go.  Officials deemed Sandercock’s action caused the caution, and he was put to the back.  On the ensuing restart Baldwin would get the jump on and Mowat would drive high into corner one to try and get back around Baldwin.   The move didn’t work as #11 Kyle Sopaz , Rinaldi and #77 Caley Weese would all get under Mowat, and they would finish in that order with Baldwin holding on to win his second of the year followed by Sopaz, Rinaldi, Weese and Mowat. 

Third feature on tap was The Brighton Automotive Thunder Stock division with 19 cars set to take the green flag.  Completing double duty Late Model winner #28 Steve Baldwin started from the pole along side #19 Corey White. Baldwin would jump out to the early lead and stay there for the first 6 laps before #17 Jeff Humphry would make the pass for the top spot.  Humphry’s lead would only las 2 laps until last weeks winner #03 Justin Ramsay came charging up from his ninth place starting position to take the lead on lap 9.  Humphry would try to work back around Ramsay in lap traffic but was unable to get it done as Ramsay would win his third feature of the year followed by Humphry, #72 Doug Anderson, Baldwin and White would round out the top five. 

 

The Bainer’s OilGARD Anti Rust Canadian Modified division would see two previous feature winners start on the front row #2 Leslie Mowat and #40 Ron Wadforth would lead the field to green.  Wadforth would get the early lead and would not look back as he was able to roll the bottom of the track and open up a full straight away lead.  #1 Shawn Gregory started sixth place and had to use the high side of the track to make his way to second place by lap 8 however by that time Wadforth had a sizeable lead.  Gregory would do everything to track Wadforth down and was closing the gap however with no cautions Wadforth would go on to win his second feature of the season.  Gregory would finish second followed by Mowat, #5 Wally Alderdice and #32 Doug O’Blenis 

 

The final feature of the night was the Bill’s John’s Mini Stock Division.  #54 Tim Moore #18 Carter Rhodes would fire from the front row on the initial green flag and it would be Rhodes that jumped to the early lead.   The racing was fast and furious as #12 Caleb Severin and #4 Chris Tufford would join the battle for the lead.  Rhodes would be successful at defending all challenges for the lead until the last lap was Tufford would manage to edge a nose under Rhodes up the back straight away and narrowly get past Rhodes on the last lap for his first win of the season.  Rhodes would come home second with Moore third followed by a strong run from rookie #41 Landon Mitchell that drove from fourteenth to fourth position with Severin rounding out the top five.
