8.8.14 Empire Super Sprints Results

Steve Poirier added another notch in his Ohsweken Speedway belt by taking his 7th career feature win at the track in Friday’s ESS vs. Corr/Pak event. The 25 lap feature began with a wild flip for 4th starter Jeremy Hughes which brought out the red flag before the first lap was completed. Hughes climbed uninjured from his heavily-damaged car. The remainder of the race ran uninterrupted. Kevin Ward, Jr. took the lead early, while Poirier moved from 10th to 5th on the first lap, and into 2nd by lap 5. Poirier drove around Ward and into the lead on lap 11, but gave the lead back to Ward on lap 14 when he hit a bump and nearly flipped in turn 1. Poirier retook the lead on lap 19, clinched the win a few laps later with a daring move to put several lapped cars behind him, and went on to win by 1.625 seconds over Ward, while Jason Barney, Mitch Brown, and Jeff Cook took top 5 finishes. Corr/Pak championship points leader Glenn Styres was the hard charger, after he moved from his provisional 23rd starting spot to finish 7th.
