Midas of Orangeville Tackle Peterborough Speedway

Feature Top 3, #84 Richard Woodland, #18 Paul Draganac, #57 James Stanley

Peterborough Speedway is known throughout Ontario as the “toughest 1/3 mile oval” and it lived up to its reputation Saturday night. A field of 24 Midget teams signed in to battle for starting with the qualifying heats.

Twelve cars would make up each of the 10 lap heat races. The #18 of Paul Draganac would pick celebrate in victory lane in heat 1 and 4 making the #18 the top qualifier of the night.

With Paul drawing an invert of 8 the 25 lap feature would have the Rookie of The Year contender #5 Jody Bound and the #42 of Brian MacDonald lead the field to green.

From the drop of the green flag the action was nonstop as drivers jockeyed for position throughout the field. A lap 12 restart would see the biggest accident of the night. Several top cars were taken out of contention with damage. With thirteen laps remaining to be run it was the #48 of Brian Woodland and the #84 of Richard Woodland that would put the show on at the front of the field. The two ran side by side for lap after lap. The two cars crossed the line to take the white flag in a dead heat only to see the # 48 of Brian Woodland getting loose coming out of two and spin down the back stretch handing the win to the #84 of Richard Woodland. #18 of Paul Draganac came very close to a perfect night with a second place finish. Behind these two another battle was being waged between the #42 of Brian MacDonald and the #57 of James Stanley with the #57 beating MacDonald by a matter of inches at the line. Brian Woodland would recover from the spin to round out the top five.

Six Rookies got their first racing laps at Peterborough Speedway with the #13 of Craig Deacon besting all his fellow rookies with a seventh place finish.

The points leader #83 Jamie Bound was absent from this weekends event and with the feature win #84 of Richard Woodland finds himself sitting atop the standing heading into next weeks’ event at Flamboro Speedway.

Right from the start the action was fast and furious as everyone was wasting no time to get to the front. The #83 of Jamie Bound showed he was the man to beat and it only took him two laps to move up from his second starting spot to the lead. A few cautions slowed the pace of the feature giving teams a chance to make the move on the #83 but bound was not to be denied and went on to claim the first ever Midas of Orangville Midget feature event. It was a family affair at the front of the field as #5 Jody Bound would place second, followed by the pole sitter #97 of Robin McLean. Rounding out the top 5 where #48 Brian Woodland and #68 Adam Carrothers.
The final race of the evening was the 6 lap non qualifier feature for the midgets. The five cars put on a great show with Rookie Bob Ross taking the win, over Raynor Vickers and Ryan Brown.
