Johnathon Ferguson wins the Race for the Cure Sportsman Series race at Cornwall Speedway

sean May 30, 2017 - 12:24pm

Dry conditions returned to the Cornwall Motor Speedway last Sunday, and drivers answered the call, with nearly 150 gathered in the pits for the first round of the Race for the Cure Sportsman Series, along with a full show in the other divisions, the Eastern Ontario Vintage, and the Slick Track Enduro.

Shane Pecore led the way in the Race for the Cure Sportsman event over Robert Delormier and Johnathon Ferguson. While Pecore was building a great lead over the field, Ferguson moved up to second as the first quarter of the race went into the books quickly. However, Moise Page brought the caution on that occasion. Pecore took off as David Rogers made his way from this 22nd starting spot and took third. Caution was back out on lap 36 for Thomas Cook giving away a top-five run. At the halfway point, Pecore was still the leader ahead of Ferguson and Rogers. Ferguson made a great move and took the lead on lap 62, as a slower car became a factor. An accident occurred in front of the grandstand with 29 laps to go, with heavy damage to several cars and the red flag being brought in. The final portion was exciting as both Ferguson and Pecore exchanged the lead on several occasions, with Ferguson resisting and getting the first win in the Series over Pecore and Robert Delormier, who rounded out the top three.

Carey Terrance had a strong start in the 32-lap Modified event, leading the first 9 laps when the caution came. On the restart, Terrance and Danny Johnson battled for the lead, with Terrance spilling off the track in turn 1. His car rolled several times, and the red flag was out. Johnson took the lead, with Gage Morin in second and Corey Wheeler in third. On the lap 20 restart, Wheeler charged to the front, passing Morin and Johnson on the same lap. Wheeler led the final laps to capture his first win of 2017 ahead of Johnson and Morin.

In the 25-lap Pro-Stock feature, Marc Lalonde grabbed the early lead, with Kevin Fetterly following closely. Lalonde led the way for the whole race, as Roch Aubin challenged him in the final laps. Lalonde remained strong in front to capture win #1 of the season.

The Eastern Ontario Vintage race saw Corey Winters taking the lead in the 15-lap feature event, with Brian Comeau second and Paul Billings third. Winter led the caution-free event to capture his first-ever feature win in the division.
