Parker Traves Sweeps Peterborough Speedway Canadian Legend Features

Trailers Plus Canadian Legend Car Series racer Parker Traves has found the fast way around Peterborough Speedway.


After having events earlier in the year plagued by inclement weather, the Saturday, August 19th Legends’ racing date at Canada’s Toughest 3rd Mile Oval kicked-off with a 25-lap feature that had been held over from July 8th. Jordan Latimer and Mark Griffin brought the 16-car starting field to the green flag, with Latimer taking the early race lead.


As drivers throughout the starting field worked through traffic to find their rhythm, Parker Traves – who had started inside the 2nd row – moved into the lead with 8 laps complete. Dawson Drimmie – who took the initial green flag alongside Traves – slid into the runner-up position, dropping Latimer back to 3rd.


A yellow flag just past the halfway mark slowed the pace but couldn’t keep Traves from taking control of the event. Drimmie, Adam Cuthbertson, Matt Haufe and Latimer rounded-out the top-5 finishing positions. Josh Inglis, Nick Portt, Matt Boyes, Griffin, Glenn Morris, Keaton Pipe, Sean Walker, Anthony Einarson, Caleb Drimmie, Mitch Wright and Amber Wallis completed the finishing order.


Canadian Legend Car (July 8th) notes: Parker Traves had an extra $500 added to his race winning pay envelope through a bonus by long-time Legends Racing supporter Stan Morrow. Dawson Drimmie received an additional $300 for his runner-up finish, with Adam Cuthbertson collecting a $200 bonus for his 3rd place showing…Matt Haufe elected to start at the rear of the field in a quest for the Skelton Truck Lines ‘Trucking to the Front’ $600 bonus. His 4th place effort meant the cash rolled-over to $700 for the nightcap. Haufe collected a $200 bonus as the race’s hard charger.


The Trailers Plus Canadian Legend Car Series returned to wrap-up the night’s action with a 25-lap feature that saw Josh Inglis and Matt Haufe on the front row. Adam Cuthbertson took the early lead, with Haufe taking the spot away with an inside line pass with only 2 laps complete. A yellow flag for an issue on the backstretch with about 10 laps complete brought the pack together and opened the door for Parker Traves – who had started outside the 2nd row – to take the lead on the restart, with Dawson Drimmie, Nick Portt, Jordan Latimer and Jade Franklin joining the leader in a 5 car breakaway.


Drimmie got close the Traves in the late stages but ran out of time to make the pass. Matt Boyes, Josh Inglis, Mark Griffin, Mitch Wright, Matt Haufe, Zach Latimer, Glenn Morris, Caleb Drimmie, Andrew McFadden, Keaton Pipe, Sean Walker, Adam Cuthbertson, Anthony Einarson and Amber Wallis rounded-out the finishing order.


Canadian Legend Car (August 19th) notes: Parker Traves had a pair of qualifying heat race wins, with the others going to Adam Cuthbertson and Dawson Drimmie…Like Matt Haufe, Jordan Latimer elected to start at the rear of the field in a quest for the $700 Skelton Truck Lines ‘Trucking to the Front’ bonus. Also like Haufe did in the July 8th make-up feature, Latimer finished 4th in the final rundown, meaning the bonus rolls over to $800 at the next event Saturday, August 26th at Peterborough.
