BRIGHTON, ON- While the 2012 championship may be out of reach for Greg Belyea and his Excel Tower Service Late Model team, that isn’t going to slow him down over the final few weeks of the season, as once again, he finds victory lane at Brighton Speedway in an incredible second half of 2012. Charlie Sandercock was also back behind the wheel with a pair of events with the Southern Ontario Sprints at Brighton, and would post his best career finish of third on Sunday.
The Late Models had their annual topless night on Sunday night, as opposed to the traditional Saturday night events at Brighton. Belyea started the night with a third place finish in his heat race after starting fourth. He started the main event from the front row, and went on to pick up his fifth win of the 2012 season.
Sandercock raced both Saturday and Sunday with the Southern Ontario Sprints at Brighton Speedway. Engine troubles kept him out of Saturday’s race though, but Sunday was much better as he won his qualifying heat race, and started the main event from the fifth position. He ran a great race, and picked up his first career podium finish with the Southern Ontario Sprints finishing in third.
This coming weekend, Belyea will be in action with the second annual Great Crate Race at Brighton Speedway. This $5000 to win event will have a total purse in excess of $20000 and will bring in cars from all over New York State, Ontario and possibly Pennsylvania and Ohio. This race will also be the second round of the Go Nuclear Late Model Challenge Series for 2012, with Belyea taking home a second place finish in the first race back in July at Mohawk Raceway. The following weekend, Belyea will return to Mohawk Raceway for a pair of events with the Go Nuclear Series on September 14th and 15th. He will then return to Brighton to finish out their 2012 season on Saturday, September 22nd as part of Applefest Weekend, and will race at Brockville Speedway on October 12th to finish out the 2012 schedule.
