JACK DANIEL’S TRUCK - GOLDSMITH FIRST TO LINE FOR FIRST FEATURE WIN
All the hard work Bridgewater’s Ryan Goldsmith and the #55 Snap On Tools/Goldsmith Forestry Chevrolet team has put into the Jack Daniel’s Truck Division has paid off with their first main feature victory. The sophomore driver piloted his Truck to the win on the divisional sponsor night to back up his heat race win earned earlier in the evening. Finishing in second behind Goldsmith (Eastern Passage) was Derek Sutherland, followed by Jason Fenton (Dartmouth)(, point leader Dan Smith (Lower Sackville) and 2011 champion JP Arsenault (Church Point).
Goldsmith will try to back up his first feature win on the biggest stage of the season as the Jack Daniel’s Truck play undercard for the Dartmouth Dodge Sportsman 100 on Friday night. Fenton, who has yet to win a main feature this season, comes in as the defending champion of the race.
HYDRAULICS PLUS BANDOLEROS - LANGILLE LEADS WAY FOR SEASON’S SECOND WIN
One of the hottest Bandolero drivers in the Maritimes in the last month has to be Shubenacadie’s Braden Langille.
Coming off a second place run the week prior at Speedway 660, Langille backed it up with a victory at Scotia Speedworld this past Friday night. Langille outran Adam Meehan (Rawdon) and point leader Jarrett Butcher (Porter’s Lake) for the win in the main feature on Jack Daniel’s Night. Fourth place belonged to rookie Nicholas Naugle (Halifax), who continues to turn heads in the division as he edged out Cole Boudreau (Chipman, NB) for the fourth spot in the main feature.
Langille started off the evening with a heat race win, as did Meehan. The Hydraulics Plus Bandoleros continue their championship chase as the undercard to the Atlantic CAT 250 on Saturday!
STRICTLY HYDRAULICS LEGENDS - BLENKHORNS BEST FIELD
Dylan Blenkhorn (Truro) picked up where he left off two weeks prior by winning the Strictly Hydraulics Legends feature on Friday night. Dylan wasn’t the only Blenkhorn on the podium though as he was joined by his father Paul (Truro) who finished in second after a close battle with Falmouth’s Matt Moore. “The Legend” Cy Harvey (Elmsdale) came home in fourth driving the #18 car out of his Harvey Racing stable while Shelby Baker (Fall River) brought his car home in fifth.
Moore and Cole Butcher (Porter’s Lake) began the night with heat wins. Butcher entered the race as the point leader, but an uncharacteristic off night from the leading Wooden Door Bistro Rookie saw the #5 car finish 12th. The points picture will tighten in the division with Paul Blenkhorn’s second place run with just a few races remaining in 2012.
ACE LUMBERMART LIGHTNING - ANOTHER TRIUMPH FOR SMITH
He’s beginning to fill the second hand when it comes to feature wins in 2012.
Jorden Smith (Lakeside) put another trophy in the case Friday night when he went to victory lane in the 25-lap ACE Lumbermart Lightning feature. It wasn’t easy though as he had to out-duel second place point driver Mike Brown (Urbania) for the win on a late restart. JR Lawson (Shubenacadie) came home with his second podium finish of the season by finishing third, in front of Chevy MacDonald (Stewiacke) and Jamie Dillman (Carroll’s Corner).
Lawson and Richie Moore (Elmsdale) began the evening with heat race wins. Smith continues to enjoy a very healthy point lead heading into an off-week for the four cylinder stars.
ACE LUMBERMART THUNDER - FOUR SCORE FOR MACMILLAN
Hammonds Plains driver Kyle MacMillan also put some more cushion on his point advantage following his third consecutive and fourth feature win of the season on Friday night. MacMillan outran Stevie Lively (Shubenacadie), who finally got him setup on the #32 car figured out to score a podium run. Tim Webster (Beaverbank) was credited with third after the run of Dave Matthews (Kennetcook) was disallowed in post race technical inspection. The disqualification moved Andrew Cluett (Kennetcook) to fourth and Dwayne Flemming (Shubenacadie) to fifth.
Heat races were won by Matthews and Steven Pickles.
