7.4.14 Southern Ontario Sprints Results

A clear, warm summer evening greeted the Southern Ontario Sprints as they rolled into Ohsweken Speedway on Friday night to take on the local weekly Corr/Pak Sprints. While billed as a challenge race between the two groups its more of a home coming for the SOS as 25 of the 30 entries for the night are full or part time SOS members. The notable exception being #67c Steve Collins who came in from NY as an outlaw for the night.

Adam West and Mitch Brown started the 25 lap “SOS vs. Corr/Pak” challenge race on the front row, but Steve Collins got by both of them by the time the first lap was complete. Glenn Styres led the championship standings for both groups when the race began, and moved to the high side of the track looking to get to the front from the fourth row, but he went a bit too high and spun on lap 3.

Collins remained in the lead when the race restarted, while Styres worked to recover from his early miscue, and row 5 starter Shane Ross was on the move. Ross had moved to 5th by lap 5, and got around West for the 4th spot by lap 8. Collins opened a large lead over Brown as he worked through traffic, and went on to take his first career feature win in any type of racing division, with Brown settling for the runner-up spot. Ross and Chris Steele fought over the 3rd spot for several laps, with Ross finally getting by on lap 23, but he spun in turn 4 on the final lap, allowing Steele to finish 3rd. Kyle Patrick finished 4th, while Styres took a hard-fought 5th place finish.

Heat races for the 30 car field were claimed by Glenn Styres, Adam West, & Chris Steele, while Chris Jones won the B-Main.
