Keith started the feature race in fourth, while Glenn started seventh. Both raced for the fourth spot with Tyler Rand, until Glenn passed both and looked to move to the front.

SUNDAY, JUNE 15
Glenn Styres and Keith Dempster were back in action on Sunday night for another Southern Ontario Sprints tour event at Humberstone Speedway. Keith started eighth in the feature race, while Glenn had trouble in his heat race and had to start 18th in the feature.

MESSAGE FROM JAMIE COLLARD
Styres/Hill’s Racing team driver Jamie Collard and Pennsylvania’s Duane Mausteller suffered serious injuries in a crash at Selinsgrove Speedway last month. Team members, fans, and friends of Jamie organized several fundraising activities recently to help the injured drivers and their families during the recovery process. Jamie shared the following message this week:
“I would like to give a big thank you to all the fans, the people who donated prizes, my race team and friends who sold tickets, and all the race teams and workers at Ohsweken Speedway who helped out with the injured driver raffle. My race team raised a huge amount of money that Duane, myself, and both our families will make great use of through this tough time. I’ve been talking to Duane Mausteller’s father, and Duane has been healing very well and has been moving around, but he is still not awake yet. I have been getting better every day, and I am getting more mobile. It feels great to be getting back to the track these last two weeks with all my friends. Thank you everyone for all of your support, and I will see you all at the track very soon!” – Jamie Collard #7x
