Speedway set for final races this weekend

office Aug 29, 2014 - 2:42pm

UPDATE (posted Aug. 31 at 3:05pm): Sunday night racing at the Speedway is rained out. Races have been post-poned to Monday, starting at 2pm. Gates will open at 10am.

A 40-lap race for Pro-Stock drivers this Sunday night at the Cornwall Motor Speedway will wrap up both the track Pro-Stock Championship and the Mohawk Race Parts Pro-Stock Series title, as two champions will be crowned.

Apple Hill's Dave Bissonnette enters the race with a comfortable lead in the track championship, but was not a regular on the Mohawk tour. A battle between two Stephanes will take place there, as Lebrun and Lemire are in the hunt for the Mohawk title; Lebrun is the defending champ. Bissonnette and Lebrun and tied in the heat championship standings. 

Sunday will be the busiest and most important evening of the season, with a total of 10 championships up for grabs.

The Modified division will see a new driver in the track championship seat, as Chris Raabe currently leads Stephane Lafrance by 16 points. In third is Carey Terrace, who will look to finish strong, sitting only 18 points behind the leader. To add to the challenge, it will be the final round of the Canadian Nationals paired with the fourth race of the DIRTcar 358-Modified Series, as 125 laps will be run. Mario Clair currently has a 33-point edge over Lafrance in the Canadian Nationals title. The Doiron Engineering Heat Points Championship will also end with Raabe leading over Terrance and Brian McDonald. Drivers will be looking to win the coveted $5,000 prize.

In the Sportsman category, a 40-lap event is on tap. It will count towards the Seaway-Lussier and GM Performance Sportsman Series, as several drivers will be looking for a good result in this event to cash in for some extra money. A battle between two drivers will come to an end, with just four points separating Shane Pecore and Corey Wheeler. Pecore will need to perform well as he also leads the way in the Seaway-Lussier Series with a three-point advantage over defending champion Mathieu Desjardins.

For the Semi-Pros, Junior Delormier only needs to finish the 15-lap Feature event and will be crowned the 2014 division champion.

It's a similar scenario for the 12-lap Mini-Stock feature, as Chris James has a 30-point lead over the second place driver.

Intermission time will be filled with several draws involving drivers who participated in all events of the respective Canadian Nationals, Seaway, and Mohawk Race Parts Series. Nearly $20,000 in prizes and cash will be handed out

Pit Gates will open at 2:30pm with general admission opening at 4pm. The first heat is scheduled for 6pm. General Admission will costs $30, with children 18 years and under only $2, seniors 65 and over $15, and Pit Admission $40.
