A Hurricane hits Peterborough…

Well actually how about 30+ Hurricane… Midgets.  But that was not the only action as a full slate of racing continues at Canada’s Toughes 1/3rd mile oval turns the laps and heads of a great crowd of loyal fans.


Vangaurd Small Storage Late Models took to the track as big boys love to play and go fast, but not before a few bumps and rubs. It was clear that rookie & veteran alike wanted to win.  Chris Mitchell (#22) picked up a heat win and Todd Dellisle #22a won the second heat. But Brian Sudsbury #29 had his hands and rearview mirror full as the battle raged behind him, the proof of which was the sheet metal damage on the Dellisle (22a), Mitchell (22) and Fernandez (77), Sudsbury (#29) picked up he 1st season, and 2nd career win.


Peterborough Hyundai Mini Stocks always put on a good show with some dirvers moving up like Mini Stocks Rookie Ember Junkin (19 – Second in points 4Fun last year), but the night belonged to older brother and car builder Tyler Junkin in the #41 as he picked up both heat wins along with the feature.


Battlefield Equipment 4Funs: This series is getting more exciting by the second. Last weeks feature winner #99 Chris Mulders picks up another heat win in 1, Peter Moore (#17) won Heat 2, then the racin’ realtor Ray Schoer (#50) won his first heat ever in heat 3, then a little girl power picked up a heat win in heat 4 when the #88 of Tiffany Vandebuilt took the checkered.  But that was not the end of her night, as that girl power found it’s way to the front once again picking up her first ever Feature win.


Parry Springs Renegade Trucks saw more action in the 1st heat then we have seen in a long time with Jeff Remmington (#29) trying to pass the #49 of Stephen Biersworth in turn 1&2 when Biersworth’s steering broke sending both trucks hard into the outside wall.  Leaving reigning champion #12 Andy McCann to take both the heat and feature win.


Hurricane Midgets are always full of excitement but when you mix champions, veterans, and rookies into a winged open wheel machine that goes 85mph down the back strech with rigid suspension, youget non stop action.  Rob McCall looked like the man to beat when he took both of his heat wins in 1 & 3, with Brian Woodland (#48) finding victory in Heat 2, and the #42 Brian MacDonald winning heat 4.  Last year we crowned a series champion with the #48 in victory circle, and tonight he proved why he is last years champion when Brian Woodland (#48) found victory circle again tonight.


Tonight also included a kid’s favorite with kids rides, but next week brings out the best… or worse in the everyday drivers, as King of the Hill returns to Canada’s Toughest 1/3rd mile Oval, where you get the chance to race your neighbor in what ever street legal ride you bring to the track as we do time trials during intermission. Hey, big risk = big rewards right?


See you next week at Peterborough Speedway.
