9.2.17 Southern Ontario Sprints Results

Brighton, Ont. – September 2nd, 2017 – The Southern Ontario Sprints returned to Brighton Speedway for their fifth visit of the season at the 1/3 mile clay oval. Cory Turner and Jake Brown led the 20 car field to the green flag. Turner powered to the lead on the opening circuit of the 25 lap main event, but was passed by Brown on lap two.

The top two raced closely while Mitch Brown, Dylan Westbrook and Ryan Turner battled for positions third through fifth. The top spot changed hands twice through the middle stage of the race as Cory Turner recaptured the lead on lap 12 only to see Jake Brown power back to the top on lap 18. Defending champion Westbrook charged towards the front and looked poised to take his eighth SOS win of the season until contact with the turn four wall ended his night.

Brown led the final seven laps on route to his first career SOS win and second of his young 360 Sprint Car career. Cory Turner finished a close second while Mitch Brown finished third. Ryan Turner and Chris Jones completed the top five.

Holly Porter, Jake Brown and Dylan Westbrook were heat race winners. Josh Sliter won the Four Wide Designs 4 lap Dash for Cash.
The Southern Ontario Sprints return to action at Brighton Speedway on Sunday night, September 3rd for the second half of the Labour Day Classic Weekend. For additional event information, visit www.brightonspeedway.com.
