Tillsonburg, ON (September 16, 2016)- Race report from the Tillsonburg Outlaws Racing Club. Tillsonburg Lubricare Beginners were joined this week by Morgan Schutz. That made a nice group of five. Kyeriah Mararcle being one of the oldest beginners decided it was time to see if she was ready for the Box Stock division which made her ineligible for points this week with the bigger restrictor. I think she will be just fine in the Box Stocks. That event moved Easton Longthorne into 1st followed by Zak Stewart and Keiran McDonald.
What action in the Smale Powder Coat Box Stock division this week. With 8 racers on the A side and a combined 10 on the B side.
#44 Jayden Dunn is looking very comfortable on the B side and took the win in the combined heat. # 45 Nick Sheridan was smooth as usual and won the A side.
Then the track changed with a big hole in turn one. There were three choices for the drivers. Stay inside of the hole, bounce through the hole or go high around the hole.
All three tactics were used in the Feature race with 13 entries. #84, Jacob Ross led most of the feature but was being hunted down by Jackson, Pellizzari and Sheridan. With the rough track, not all the drivers have learned to avoid a hole yet and so there were more cautions than normal. Still, Ross was able to stay in front but somewhere along the way, bobbled which let John Jackson Jr get by and take the win. Neither Pellizzari nor Sheridan were able to follow suit and took 3rd and 4th behind Ross.
The nights results? Jackson and Sheridan tied for 1st. Ross and Pellizzari tied for 2nd and Ashton Vanevery and Noah Longthorne tied for third. These last two drivers only just moved up from Beginner into this very tough Box Stock class this year and have already moved their way up into the top third of the field. Pretty darn good if you ask me.
Survival was the word in the Chesterman Power Products Opens this week.
The Sprint had good conditions and everyone was very fast. At the checkers, it was Syd Hess first across the line followed closely by John Smibert and Holly Porter. The only drivers not on the lead lap had DNF’s which is kind of amazing. With the field inverted for the Feature, they went at it again, but this time with a much rougher track at the pit end. The race started with way too many cautions but as we worked our way through them, the field was slowly dwindling. Scott Hall left missing a wheel, Syd Hess with some broken pedals, Andrew Marshall with repeated traction problems, John Miller with a disconnected carburetor. The rest made it to the end with Scott Chesterman, Holly Porter, John Smibert and Ken Pellizzari finishing in that order.
Only two races to go, Sept 20th Indoors and 24th outdoors, followed by the Awards banquet, Oct. 22 2016 and then the 2017 Club meeting on November 12
