In the July 17th edition of Spencer Lewis’ Inside Track Motorsport News Short Track Notebook, we debrief after a wild ‘Home and Home Series’ event at Sauble Speedway with Jason Parker and Scott McTeer, catch up with Mini Stock sophomore Jake Watson and ask Fedele Dibello about his views on Peterborough Speedway’s Autumn Colours Classic.
On July 12th, Sauble Speedway hosted the opening round of the Sauble vs. Sunset ‘Home and Home Series’. The second-year mini-series pits regular competitors from the two facilities against one another in a combined points paying event. In the rain shortened 50-lap Ltd. Late Model event, Sauble Speedway point leader Jason Parker utilized a late-race pass of Sunset Speedway point leader to win his 4th race of 2014. We chatted with “The New Age Punisher” post-race, and asked about his 2014 season, his new McColl Racing Enterprises and his strategy for the second round of the Home and Home Series.

2-time reigning and defending Sauble champion Scott McTeer (above, by TW Robarts Photography) finished 2nd in the Ltd. Late Model feature, and took the time to speak with us post-race about his car’s performance, his two wins this season and his strategy for Round 2 of the Home and Home Series at Sunset on July 26th.

As the 2014 season enters its second half, racers across Ontario have begun to count down the weeks until Peterborough Speedway’s infamous Autumn Colours Classic on October 10th, 11th and 12th. Recently, we caught up with Peterborough Thunder Car driver Fedele Dibello (above, by Jack Hannah) and asked his take on the season-end affair. Dibello also opened up about his family-run program, his 2014 season and what it would mean to his team to earn a strong finish at the Thanksgiving weekend mega-event. Click here for the video.
Third-generation competitor Jake Watson (above, by Thompson Photography) recently made his first career Sauble Speedway appearance in Mini Stock competition. ‘The Derringer’ impressed in the outing, and we chatted with the thirteen-year old post-race about his first impressions of the speedway, his outlook on his sophomore season and what he hopes to accomplish through the back-half of the 2014 season at his hometrack of Sunset.
