O'BRIEN SCORES WILD 358 MODIFIED FEATURE AT BROCKVILLE
100 cars packed the pit area for the 2nd straight week on Superior
Cellular and Sound night at The BOS. All 5 classes put on a great show
for the fan and provided some great racing all night long.
The Sportsman division was set to go for the opening round of the Seaway
GM and Performance Sportsman Series and defending series champion Chris
Herbison was ready for battle as he drew the number 4 starting spot.
However it was Dylan Breen and Steve Barber who drew the front row
positions and at the drop of Gary Vandermeer's green flag Breen jumped
out to a 4 car length lead. Just behind him last week's winner Shane
Pecore, Barber, Herbison and Quebec star Steve Bernier were having a war
for spots 2 through 5. The first caution flew on lap 7 for Jessica Power
who set fastest time overall during time trials, as she came to a stop
in turn 4. On the next restart 4 cars tangled in turn 1 bringing the
yellow back out again. Once the drivers got going again on lap 8 Pecore
was rolling around on the top side and was able to grab the lead from
Breen with Herbison, Barber and Dylan Evoy rounding out the top 5.
Pecore and Breen battled for several laps before Pecore took sole
possession of the lead on lap 13. At the halfway point major problems
for defending track and series champion Chris Herbison as he blew a
motor in turn 4. Herbison was able to coast to the pits and the field
remained under green. Pecore caught lapped traffic on lap 22 which
brought Dylan Breen back into the mix, who was able to get by for the
lead when the caution flag flew for debris. On the next restart Breen
grabbed the lead again and looked to have a stronger car. However on lap
28 the great drive came to an end as Breen lost a right front tire in
turn 2. This left Pecore with the lead on the next restart with Evoy,
Bernier, Mathieu Desjardins and Jonathan Ferguson completing the top 5.
Pecore was on cruise control for the rest of the night. With a full
straightaway lead nobody was catching him on this night as he scored 2
in a row in the Sportsman class and 1st ever Seaway GM and Performance
Sportsman Series win. Evoy, Bernier, Desjardins and Ferguson rounded out
the top 5.
The 358 Modifieds were ready for their 30 lap contest and 10 time track
champion Danny O'Brien had the pole position for the event and quickly
flexed his muscle by taking the lead from Jason Riddell into turn 1.
O'Brien quickly opened up a full straightaway lead by lap 3 with
Riddell, Marc Therrien, Joe Banks and Adam Moore making up the top 5
early on. On lap 4 the yellow flag flew for a 3 car spin in turn 4. On
the next restart is where everything let loose. Joe Banks who was
running in 3rd got turned into the wall stacking up the field on the
front stretch as a total of 10 cars slammed violently into each other
and came to a rest in turn 1. After the carnage settled all drivers
amazingly climbed out of their cars unhurt in the vicious accident. Some
cars were damaged beyond repair for the night however a few cars were
able to make repairs and rejoin at the back of the pack. With field set
to go back racing Danny O'Brien continued his dominant run with Riddell,
defending track champion Kyle Dingwall, Stephane Lafrance and Lee Gill.
Only 1 caution more caution slowed the event but O'Brien stayed strong
in the number 1 position by pulling out to a straightaway lead. By the
halfway point the man on the charge was Stephane Lafrance. After an
accident and injury filled 2012 season Lafrance has got everything in
order for the new year. After coming from 13 he was able to get by
Dingwall for 2nd and was in hot pursuit of the leader. With 2 laps to go
Lafrance was within a car length of O'Brien which sent the BOS fans
cheering to their feet as the 2 cars headed for the white flag. The top
2 raced bumper to bumper down the back stretch into turn 3 and 4. But
with lapped traffic in front of them Danny O'Brien was not to be denied
as he scored his 1st win of 2013 and 148th of his 358 modified career.
Lafrance settled for 2nd, Lee Gill crossed 3rd with Dingwall and Riddell
4th and 5th at the checkers.
The new Rookie Sportsman division was on the card and the driver who
claimed the opener Aaron Pugh had his work cut out for him as he started
in the 5th position. Jamie Young and Jeremy Coulter were first to the
green and put on a great battle for the top spot early on. Many early
race caution flags slowed the event which involved the top 2 drivers.
Once the field spaced out Aaron Pugh soared to the lead and clicked off
some very smooth laps throughout the event with Jasmine David and Chris
Bakker making up the top 3. The rest of the race would go caution free
and Pugh was unchallenged again for his 2nd win in a row in the Rookie
Sportsman class. David, Bakker, Tristan Draper and Richard Raison made
up the top 5 spots at the finish.
In Street Stock action 14 cars took the green flag with Todd Raabe
racing out to the quick advantage over Nick Gauvreau, John Gifford,
Steve Kearney and Brock Cullen. Raabe held the lead through much of the
event with Gauvreau, Cullen, Kevin Fetterly Jr. and Steve Kearney
completing the top 5. A scary crash on lap 12 saw Selina Simzer and last
weeks winner Guy Regimbald make heavy contact with the front stretch
wall. Regimbald was able to climb from his car unhurt Simzer had to be
helped out by saftey crews but walked to the Ambulance under her own
power. On the restart things got interesting as Raabe who looked to have
the race in hand was turned by Gauvreau on the frontstretch. Both cars
would restart at the back of the field. On the next restart Brock Cullen
who was running in 2nd spun all by himself in turn 4 setting up a 1 lap
shootout to the finish. On the final lap Steve Kearney had his hands
full with 3 time and defending champion
Fetterly but Kearney stayed strong to record the big win with
Derek Cryderman, Derrick Eaton, and Travis Andrews coming home in the
top 5 spots.
The Rookie class always provides some great racing action all year at
The BOS and this night was no different. Randy Massey and Colin Tracey
came to the green flag on the front row but were quickly overtaken by a
very fast Josh Kirkland and Quincy Roberts for the top 2 spots. Kirkland
and Roberts put on a great battle for the lead but the man on the move
was Bob Ray. After starting 13th he charged to the lead just before
halfway point and despite 3 late race cautions nobody had anything for
Ray on this night as he rolled to his first win of the year over
Kirkland, Kurtis Day, Ron Day and Mark Radbourne.
Next week the Ford Dingwall Vintage Series will be on the card along
with a regular show for all divisions. The green flag drops at 7 pm.
