August 28, 2014- Over the course of the 2014 season, Danny O’Brien has been on top of his game at Brockville Speedway, posting seven feature wins, including four consecutive victories to sweep the entire month of July. All of the hard work and effort has paid off so far, but the biggest prize still awaits with an impressive 11th track championship at Brockville on his doorstep.
Danny will enter Saturday night’s finale at Brockville Speedway with a massive 62 point lead in the standings. Double features were voted in by the fans, making the final night a little tricky for O’Brien, but barring any kind of disaster in the first event, O’Brien will come out on top for the 11th time at the BOS in his career.
“We have had a great year here at Brockville, but we aren’t quite finished yet, says O’Brien. “We have two more features to run here for points, and hopefully we can pick up another win or two”.
The BOS championship is not the only title that Danny could win this weekend, as he currently carries a two point advantage in the battle for the Frenchie’s “Chevy Runs Deep” 358 Modified Series at Mohawk International Raceway. Friday night’s 50 lap main event will be the series finale and Danny will be looking to close the series with a win, just as he opened the series with a win back on May 31st. Danny also has a mathematical chance of winning the overall Mohawk Raceway track title, but will have a 44 point deficit to make up, which is quite unlikely.
“We have struggled here at MIR this season, but have finished well enough in these Frenchie’s Series events to stay in contention”, says O’Brien. We will do our best Friday night and see where things play out in the end”.
In addition to the weekly events to end the regular season, O’Brien will also race at Cornwall Speedway on Sunday night in their 125 lap DIRTcar 358 Modified Series race. O’Brien won this same Labor Day weekend event at Cornwall back in 2010, and had a podium finish in a similar 100 lap event at the beginning of the 2014 season.
