PETERBOROUGH, ON (July 28, 2019)- It was another exciting night of open-wheeled action as the Ontario Modifieds Racing Series powered by Torque Builders Inc. and Gen-3 Electrical got together Saturday, July 27th to tackle the tight, tricky bullring on Mount Pleasant Road.
With 25 laps on the table, Randy Hollingsworth and Craig Scott brought the pack to the green flag for the main event. Hollingsworth and Rick Warnes led a breakaway from the inside line as a four-car battle for the third position in the running order was being waged behind them. Rob Warnes held it first, with Nick Lees taking his turn in the spot with a lap six pass. Lees and Chad Strawn were locked in a four-car fight for the lead, as Strawn took control of the field on lap 11.
There was action all around the venue known as Canada’s Toughest 1/3-Mile Paved Oval and John Baker Jr. used lapped traffic to his advantage to wrestle the lead away with a lap 21 pass. At the checkered flag, the pilot of the #63 machine held-off a challenge from Strawn and the 12-car field became Baker’s Dozen, as the fan favourite wrapped-up his second consecutive Ontario Modifieds Racing Series victory in the caution-free event. Dwight Brown, Lees, Alex Cuzzilla, Rob Warnes, Rick Warnes, Scott, Bob Franks, Willow Barberstock, Hollingsworth and Josh Gruntz completed the running order.
