The annual Mother’s Race was the big show this past Wednesday night on the kart track at the Brockville Ontario Speedway but also track titles and last chances to get a win were also up for grabs and the racing was intense.
In Box Stock First Year Rhylan Banks was looking to keep the competition behind him as he led early on but Max McBride was right there to challenge. Poole was able to pull away in the 10 lap event and hold off a late charge by Malcome Banks to score yet another win in Box Stock First Year with Banks crossing 2nd while Max McBride would come home 3rd.
In Box Stock Second Year Lachlan Anderson was in search of win number 3 on the season but Bryson Winters would not make it easy on him during the entire 10 lap event. Winters put on the pressure but Anderson was strong as he led every lap to score his 3rd win of the year over Winters and Aiden Berry who came from a lap down to finish 3rd.
Grayson Reddick has been on a hot streak as of late, after a big win 1 night ago in Cornwall he took the lead early in the 15 lap Rookie 1 event. Blake Smith would put on a late race charge at the end but Reddick was not to be denied as he finally scored his first win of the season at Brockville over Blake Smith and Barron Greer.
The Rookie 2 event saw Brennan Moore jump out in front early and run out to a commanding lead early on. Kalen Draper was also on the move as he came from the back of the pack to take over 2nd at half way but had some work to do to catch the leader. On this night Brennan Moore was too strong as he charged home to his 3rd win of the year over Draper and Carson Jakielaszek.
In Clone Jordan Wood had everything going his way as he took the lead at the drop of the green and would march on to his 3 straight win of the year with Rayna Wood crossing in 2nd.
Zack Renaud was the dominant force in the Jr. Restricted feature event. After taking the lead on lap 4 Renaud would go unchallenged the rest of the way to win his 5th feature of the season. Tyler Stewart would battle back to finish up 2nd with Mason Barkley claiming the final podium spot coming across 3rd.
The Stock Light class saw Dylan Tinkler take over the top spot early on from Chris Pryor with Xavier Perrin completing the top 3. Tinkler had a fast kart as he pulled away to comfortable advantage to march on to his first win of the season. Pryor held on for 2nd while Xavier Perrin came home 3rd.
The Stock Heavy division saw Tim Bailey charge to the lead early on but several caution flags allowed Raymond David to close the gap. Over the final laps David made several attempts to get by but it was not to be as Tim Bailey would charge to his first win of the year over Raymond David and former Street Stock driver Brett Horner crossed in 3rd.
In an epic battle for race mother supremacy 11 drivers took to the speedway in a winner take all battle. Joanna Smith lead early on and seemed destined to cruise to an easy win. However on lap 5 Smith saw that all go away as she spun in turn 4. This brought Cindy Stewart to the lead and despite several cautions and fast closing Sheena Perrin, Stewart would march on to score the huge win in the 12 lap contest. Sheena Perrin finished a close 2nd with Jessi Perrin crossing in 3rd.
The karting action will resume on September 24th for the annual Fall Classic with registration starting at 11pm. The first green flag will fly at 1pm.
