CAYUGA, ONTARIO (June 23, 2013) – The final rounds for the Pro Modified Racing Association, the Quick 32 Sportsman Series, and the Pro Bike & Sled Series were postponed during the South Coast Community Weekend race on the Cayuga Dragway of Toronto Motorsports Park.
The final rounds will take place at the upcoming Canadian Nitro Nationals at the same track July 12-14. This will complete the third race of the 2013 season for all series.
Once again Rocky Di Lecce led the PMRA in qualifying, and the Mississauga, Ontario driver has a chance of making PMRA history if he wins the race, which would be his third in a row with his Camaro. After making it to the final round today, he will be facing stiff competition with three-time IHRA Funny Car champion Rob Atchison of London, Ontario, who qualified second with his Corvette Pro Modified.
Presented by NAPA Auto Parts, the Quick 32 Sportsman Series also completed all but its final event round, which will feature the Top Dragster of Lance Orr from Shawville, Quebec taking on Top Sportsman finalists Rob Gray of Ingersoll, Ontario. Gray has been to the winner’s circle in Top Sportsman racing, while Orr is still seeking his first victory. Gray took out Tom Orr, also of Shawville, in the Top Sportsman final, while Lance Orr defeated Tony Positano of Toronto, Ontario to advance to the event final, which pits the finalists in Top Dragster and Top Sportsman.
With one PBSS win to his credit in 2013, Dan Cryderman will have another chance at victory, as the Thamesville, Ontario Pro Bike rider will meet up in the final round with Pro Bike rider Dave Vandereyken of Acton, Ontario. Both ride Suzuki motorcycles, and Cryderman qualified number one in the PBSS presented by Wiseco Performance Products field with Vandereyken qualifying sixth.
