Over the past four seasons, Kyle Dingwall has struggled to find the on-track success that he had been accustomed to throughout his racing career. Bad luck and just being at the wrong place at the wrong time had a lot to do with that, and lack of funding also played a contributing role. 2012 is a new year though, and it has been a good start for Dingwall, as he has shown significant improvement in his racing program with great sponsors, a strong team and a brand new 2012 Bicknell car.
This past weekend, Dingwall had the usual events on his schedule beginning with Brockville Speedway on Saturday night, Cornwall Speedway on Sunday.
At Brockville, Dingwall began the evening by winning his qualifying heat, giving the team confidence going into the 30-lap main event. Starting from inside the second row in the third position, Dingwall quickly moved into second. For the first ten laps he pressured the leader waiting patiently for an opportunity to grab the top spot, and made the winning pass before they completed lap 11. The first and only caution of the race came on lap 15, but Dingwall was able to pull away from the field, collecting his first win of the 2012 season, and first since May 31, 2008.
“It has been a long time coming,” Dingwall said in victory lane. “I really have to thank the crew, and everyone that helps us out. I also want to thank our sponsors that have supported us this season, as well as the race fans.”
Looking to make it two in row, Dingwall planned to race at Cornwall Speedway on Sunday night in conjunction with the World of Outlaw Late Model Series. A late afternoon rain forced track officials to cancel the night’s events.
This coming weekend, Dingwall will be back at Brockville Speedway on Saturday night, and then off to Cornwall Speedway on Sunday as the Big Block Modifieds make their only visit of the season with the Super DIRTcar Series. Dingwall currently sits third in points at Brockville, and fourth in points at Cornwall.
