STROUD, ON (September 17, 2017)- To only call it ‘action’ isn’t enough. The 2017 Trailers Plus Eastern Ontario Legends Series season has delivered the ultimate of motorsports excitement lap-after-lap, with every turn of the wheel. After a strong year, the countdown is on and only a pair of events remain before the tour crowns its first champion. Next on the agenda is a return to Sunset Speedway on Saturday, September 23.
The popular oval, located north of the Greater Toronto Area, has already played host to a trio of EOLS events, with feature race wins by Matt Haufe, Kevin Foisy and a Saturday, August 5 victory by Robin Jongen in the year’s second qualifier for the U.S. Legends Asphalt Nationals to be held October 13 and 14 at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway Bullring. Speaking on behalf of the Eastern Ontario Legends team of officials, that also includes Andrew McFadden, Kevin Foisy and Geordie Ledson, Jeff Drimmie says its quite likely the outcome of the inaugural season will come down to the final checkered flag at the Autumn Colours Classic.
“Most of our events have been staged at Peterborough Speedway, but in addition to Sunset, the series has also turned laps at Kawartha and September 9 and 10, our teams headed west to Grand Bend Speedway’s oval and also ran a test session for a possible future road course date,” Drimmie explained. “Ever since the first green flag of the year, its been our goal to expose the Eastern Ontario Legends Series brand to as many fans as possible and I think we can call our mission a success.”
Drimmie says the east-versus-west events shows at Grand Bend brought some new players into the fold, with U.S. invader Gregory Rudzik taking the Saturday win on the oval after 30 laps of caution-free racing. The combined two division event had a total of nine Saturday races without a single yellow flag. Adam Cuthbertson claimed the victory in the road course test session.
