@sossprints * @GlennStyres * Glenn Styres has a collection of trophies and checkered flags from his many trips to South Buxton Raceway over the last 12 years. But one thing was missing from his mantelpiece – a feature win trophy.
The owner of Ohsweken Speedway finally conquered South Buxton on Saturday night with his first career feature win on the 3/8th-mile ‘D-shaped’ oval in front of a crowd of more than 2,000 fans for the Southern Ontario Sprints.
“This track is so difficult to drive, I told my crew chief (Steve Moulton) last night, I was practicing in my mind how I was going to run, and it’s that corner that hassles you every time you come here,” Styres said, pointing to turn four and the entrance to the sweeping front stretch of the ‘D.’
A-Main Results (Top 10 / 25 laps): 1. 0 Glenn Styres (3); 2. 7m Justin Martin (2); 3. 10b Mitch Brown (6); 4. 33k Kyle Patrick (4); 5. 71s Shawn Sliter (7); 6. 11j Chris Jones (5); 7. 5 Keith Dempster (10); 8. 30 Adam West (1); 9. 15 Mike Ferrell (8); 10. 10 Bob Crawford (9)
