CORNWALL — Another great night of racing was on the card Sunday, July 23, at Cornwall Motor Speedway as the second of round of the Race for the Cure Sportsman Series was run along with a complete show plus remake features for Pro-Stock and Mini-Stock and the always popular autograph session. This evening was sponsored by Seaway GM.
Tristan Draper got the early lead in the 100-lap Race for the Cure Sportsman as Brianna Ladouceur was challenging for the lead, she was able to get the lead over Draper as her faded to fourth with Robert Delormier and Thomas Cook passing him. Ladouceur in lap traffic by lap 13 as Felix Murray brought the caution out 3 laps later. On the restart, Shane Pecore was on the move as he made his way to front passing Ladouceur on lap 25 to take the lead. Draper was back in the mix as he got by Ladouceur for second on lap 42 and closed in on Pecore. Started back in 22nd, Martin Pelletier was now in the top 5 challenging for third by the halfway point. A lap 60 restart, saw Pecore lead the way over Pelletier and Draper. The leaders got into lap traffic with 20 to go as Draper went too high in turn 3 and lost his third causing the yellow. The final laps were quite exciting as Pelletier tried everything to pass Pecore but was not able to do it as Pecore collected the win over Pelletier and Ladouceur.
Louie Jackson got the lead in the 30-lap Modified feature with Tim O’Brien in battle with him, as Gage Morin and Corey Wheeler made their way to the top as they challenged the leader by lap 10. A lap 16 restart, saw David Hebert having a great jump and moved to third. Just like in the Sportsman, the final laps were a barnburner as Hebert and Wheeler challenged for the lead running side by side as Wheeler had the best getting a second feature this season.
Dave Seguin led the way in the 25-lap Alexandria Home Hardware with CD Beauchamp running in second with Roch Aubin in third. Beauchamp was able to pass Seguin for first as caution was out on lap 11. Beauchamp never looked back as the battle was for second between Seguin and Marc Lalonde. Beauchamp went on to win his first feature of the season over Lalonde and Seguin
The night started with the remake 15-lap feature for the Mini-Stock as Alexis Charbonneau dominated the event capturing the win, several position changes at the back of Charbonneau as Francis Desjardins and Steve Morin completed the podium.
Dave Seguin and CD Beauchamp moved away from the field in the early stage of the Alexandria Home Hardware Pro-Stock feature event from last Sunday. A lap 10 restart, saw Seguin staying in front with Beauchamp still on his back bumper with a good battle for third with Marc Lalonde getting the position. On the restart on lap 16, both leaders got tangled together as Marc Lalonde your new leader. Rock Aubin made a great return taking the lead and became the fifth different driver to win in the Pro-Stock ranks.
The Polar Sound DJ Services Mini-Stock saw Mike Gaucher becoming the first driver to win 2 features in the division in 2017 after a great side by side battle with Alexis Charbonneau.
