Sunday saw the 50th racing season open on the Cornwall Motor Speedway's dirt track.
Amongst the divisions competing in the May 19 races was the Pro Stock feature. Former Apple Hill resident Dave Bissonnette led the way early, but got passed by CD Beauchamp on lap 3. Beauchamp had company in Alexandria's Rock Aubin at the halfway point, as the drivers ran side-by-side for several laps. They got together in the backstretch on lap 17, and Beauchamp had to go to the rear of the field. Lebrun led the final laps for the victory.
Final standings: STEPHANE LEBRUN, ROCH AUBIN, DAVE SEGUIN, CD BEAUCHAMP, MARC LALONDE, PIERRE-OLIVIER BREAULT, DAVE BISSONNETTE, BURTON WARD, ERIC JEAN-LOUIS, KEVIN FETTERLY, MIKE BLAIS.
