Styres, Turner, Boughton & McDonald Grab Opening Night Wins at Ohsweken

Written by  on Tuesday, 21 May 2013 13:01

(May 17, 2013) - Ohsweken Speedway's 18th season of competition began on Friday night with Glenn Styres (Corr/Pak Merchandising Sprint Cars), Cory Turner (Affordable Towing & Recovery Thunder Stocks), Davey Boughton (HRW Automotive Mini Stocks), and Jesse McDonald (Gale's Auto Aftermarket Bombers) visiting Klotz Canada Synthetic Lubricants Victory Lane.

CORR/PAK MERCHANDISING SPRINT CARS
Styres started the Corr/Pak Merchandising Sprint Car feature on the inside of the second row, and quickly took the lead from Derek Jonathan. The race was halted once for a red flag, after Todd Hoddick took a wild tumble in turn one. Styres overcame nose wing damage to take the win, his 17th career feature victory at Ohsweken. Chris Steele, Mitch Brown, Mikey Kruchka, and Dave Dykstra rounded out the top five.

Glenn Styres, Travis Cunningham, and Mitch Brown claimed heat race wins, while Dain Naida won the B-Main, and Mikey Kruchka received the Nathan Ackland State Farm Insurance "Top Gun" award for accruing the most heat race passing points.

AFFORDABLE TOWING & RECOVERY THUNDER STOCKS
The first Affordable Towing & Recovery Thunder Stock feature of the season was hotly contested, but in the end Cory Turner emerged from the pack to win over Jim Lampman, Devin Habiuk, Mike Miller, and Lee Winger.

Brad Bacher, Steve Hess, Ryan Turner, and Chris Dickie won the heat races, while Karl Sault won the B-Main.

HRW AUTOMOTIVE MINI STOCKS
There was a familiar car in victory lane with a rookie driver after the HRW Automotive Mini Stock feature. 2012 Bomber champion Davey Boughton piloted the former Jeremy Hughes ride to the win over Robin Elliott, Alex Schuts, Dave Goodacre, and Laura Hughes.

Robin Elliott, Jason Lungaro, and Laura Hughes won heat races, while Dale Gyokery took the victory in the B-Main.

GALE'S AUTO AFTERMARKET BOMBERS
A four car race for the win made the Gales Auto Aftermarket Bomber feature exciting right to the end. Jesse McDonald started on the pole and led the entire event, but he had to make his way through traffic while fending off challenges from Brady Longboat, Dusty Deboer, and Max Chechalk, who finished in that order, with Tim DeBoer rounding out the top 5.

Brady Longboat and Dusty DeBoer won the first Bomber heat races of the season.
