Freelton, ON (August 2, 2017)- The strong performances for AJ Emms continued this season at Flamboro Speedway, as he ran up front throughout the feature en route to a runner-up finish.
Emms started off the night strong, placing second in his first heat, followed by a win in the second qualifier.
Starting on pole for the 30-lap feature, he jumped out to the early lead to pace the first six laps prior to the first caution. He would lose the lead on the restart, slipping back to second till the second yellow flag waved.
Emms got a better restart this time around, taking back the top spot and leading till the third caution flew at Lap 14. The restart saw a battle for the lead between Emms and Chris Milwain, with Milwain taking the top spot on Lap 15 ahead of Emms.
From there on, Emms lost some ground to Milwain as he pulled away for the victory, though managed to keep a gap over the competitors behind him to pick up a runner-up finish.
With six straight top-fives, he currently sits second in the standings, just two points behind Cory Horner for the top spot.
Emms and company will be back in action this weekend at Peterborough Speedway for the Touring Chase for the Colours.
