Great Racing Caps Off Season At BOS Kart Track !
It was a great turnout for the annual Karting Fall Nationals at Brockville Ontario Speedway.With near 60 competitors, there was a good showing of sportsmanship and some very hard racing…First up was the first year Box Stock class. Rhylan Poole, having problems with his engine earlier, was not even sure he would race the feature. Fortunately, Brian Clarke stepped up and helped the young racer by giving him the engine off his ride. Rhylan took full advantage, leading the feature in dominant fashion from the start. Melcom Banks in the M75 was able to mount a serious challenge, running side by side, but Rhylan fought him off and cruised to victory, putting an exclamation mark on his season.Banks and Finley Mahoney rounded out the top three.
Next up was second year Box Stock and after a hard hit on the turn 4 wall for Aiden Berry, the race resumed on lap 2. Gabe Miller would lead from the start and while the race would slow three more times, Miller was not to be denied. He would dominate to take home the checkers, ahead of Ethan Dobb and Bryson Winters.
The Rookie 1 feature would go under caution almost immediately, as Blake Smith and James Markland would make contact, senting Smith’s 18 around in turn 1. Gordie Miller would lead from the drop of the green, but a three wide move off turn 2 would move Dylan Moore into the runner-up spot. As Miller continued to lead, Grayson Reddick wouold take over the number two spot on lap 4. A caution for Smithon Lap 13 would bunch the field back up. But Miller would not be denied as he would cross the start/finish line ahead of Reddick and James Markland.
The Clone class saw another act of sportsmanship as the 27R of Rayna Wood steppd aside to allow Brennan Moore to run. Jordan Wood started up front and led early. Theo Mitchell would run second, while Brennan Moore used his borrowed machine to run third. A spin by Mitchell on lap 7 would slow the field one time.Wood continued on to the victory, outpacing Moore and Mitchell at the line.
The Rookie 2 feature was a battle of attrition after a couple of attempts to go green, Kalen Draper paced the field through the first seven laps. Cautions would slow the field three time at laps 2, 4 and 6. Another caution on lap seven , occurred Landon Slinger took the lead from Draper. Two laps after the restart, Draper would retake the lead. On lap 11, Slinger would bring out the caution as a great run would come undone. Two more cautions would set up a one lap shootout. Draper would come home first, ahead of Max Petro and Kyle Stewart.
Jayden Comeau, would start from the outside pole and take the lead off turn 2 in the Junior Restricted feature.The race would slow three times, including on lap 10 wreck off turn 4 for Noah Massey, that saw the driver unable to continue. Comeau looked poised to take the win, but ongoing pressure from Zach Renaud finally resulted in contact on lap 12, which opened the door for Renaud to take the lead. Fromthere, Renaud would take the checkers ahead of Comeau and Trent Wallace.
The Lawn Tractor class saw Wesley Pelkie jump out to an early lead. By lap 2, the 2B machine of Ben Nurse would assume the top spot, leading the rest of the way as the race slowed only once. Nurse would come home first ahead of Pelkie and Mark Nurse.
The Stock Light feature would be slowed eight times for cautions. Anthony Rasmussen and Zach Renaud looked to be the ones to beat as they exchanged the lead through the first part of the race. On lap 9, Xavier Perrin went three wide for the lead as, Dylan Crawford spun. Perrin would lead to lap 13, when Dylan Tinkler would take over the lead off turn 2. Tinkler would go on to the win ahead of Perrin and Crawford.
The Stock Heavy feature saw a pair of 17’s lead the field to green. The 17 of Randy Revelle take the lead ahead of Raymond David’s 17X. The race would go yellow only once, on lap 4 for the Brad Gipson. Revelle would lead to the halfway point, until David would get by.David would goon to win in front of Revelle and Tim Bailey.
