(By Martin Bélanger) The Circuit Pro Tour visited the Cornwall Motor Speedway earlier this month, providing three days of winter action in 17 categories of competition.
The final event of the weekend was the Pro Champ 10-lap feature. Jason Lavallée had a great start and was never challenged during the event as he had a perfect weekend winning all three features and qualifying events. Lavallée also collected the Triple Crown for his dominance, earning an extra $1,000 paycheck!
The biggest field of the day with 9 competitors took the green in the Single Cylinder Modified 4-lap event. Doug Zadow took the win.
Cole McMichael won a second feature in the afternoon; he also prevailed in the Semi Pro Formula 500 feature.
The Semi-Pro Championship feature saw Steven Marquis dominate the 5-lap event ahead of Cody Weatherdon
Jean-Francois Moffet took the VTT Open feature over Jonathan Jans, but he had to resist a few charges from the second place runner. In the 0-450cc, history repeated for Moffet, as Jans gave him solid competition in this event. Moffet took both features.
The Junior 340, 13-16, saw Doug Dingman win the event, as Danick Lambert ran out of time to catch Dingman. The Oberparleiter brothers ran the 10-13 feature with older brother Alex having the best over Matthew.
Sabrina Blanchet had a great start in the Combo feature, dominating the event. It was a great comeback for her as she had an accident earlier in the day.
The battle continued between Donald Desourdy and Doug Zadow. Desourdy had the best over his great competitor in the Single Cylinder Master Division feature.
Cole McMichael took the the lead in the Pro-Formula 500. He had a strong showing to win over Ryan Florent.
The 8-lap Outlaw feature saw a good battle until Tim Hibbard took the lead at halfway point . He had issues in the final lap, as Cory Baker took the victory outside of turn 4 to end Hibbard’s dominance.
A total of 8 sleds took the track for the Single Cylinder, as Donald Desourdy was the guy to beat. He turned in a good race and won the event.
Eddie Anderson had a good start in the Sport Formula 500 and maintained the lead throughout the 5-lap race.
The Vintage class saw Troy Dods in front early in the 4-lap event; he never was challenged in the race that combined the 340 and 440 engines.
The Motocycles were first on the track in the afternoon. Shawn Ford continued his great weekend, winning the final, but he had to hold off charges from David Tremblay on the final 2 laps of the event. Ford was perfect all weekend.
The Cornwall Motor Speedway would like to thank all the sponsors and individuals who contributed to the success of this event.
