Tillsonburg, ON- A two week exchange race with the Ohsweken club was put into place to coordinate, but not conflict, with the appearance of the World of Outlaws . This made for some larger than normal classes at both clubs and certainly made for some great racing.
In the beginners it was Logan Lapierre-Cassie from Brantford taking the overall in Tillsonburg and Paige Smith was top Tillsonburg Racer when we went to Ohsweken.
In the Juniors , it was # 45 Nick Sheridan from Mt Brydges who was dominant at both tracks taking the overall wins. Tom Pellizarri (#5) of Tillsonburg took second at both tracks but was a single point away from grabbing the overall win in Ohsweken. Kyle McGlone (#15) took third in Tillsonburg and # 0 Johnny Miller was third at the “O”
Jacob Sheridan managed to match his brothers results by taking overall at both tracks in the Seniors. At his home track, Jacob was followed by Eric McGlone(Union) and Colby Bennett (Port Dover) tied for second, It was Bea Courtnage in third.
At Ohsweken, the local club was able to break into the top three with a second (Andrew Marshall) and tied for third was Hannah Ferrell( Wilsonville) and Colby Bennett.
As for the Experts, the three house Karts held off all challengers from the top three in Tillsonburg but Ohsweken was another story. The #19 Cody Coburn of Mount Brydges took first overall in convincing fashion. Dave Chesterman managed second overall despite an early departure from the final of three races. Brent Smith (Woodstock) used his big 450 four stroke to grab third overall.
There is a rumour that the Experts may see three new karts out to race this week, which will only add to the excitement.
Overall, the exchange races went well with some few new faces and a couple of old ones. The Ohsweken track was something different, with higher speeds and longer lap times which had Tillsonburg teams scrambling to figure out a good set up.
Next race is August 13 in Tillsonburg
