Speedway offers photo/autograph session on Sunday

(By Martin Bélanger)    A great night for the whole family is scheduled this Sunday at it will be Autograph and Photo Night at Cornwall Motor Speedway. A full program is on the schedule for all 5 divisions.

Race fans will be invited during intermission time to come and meet their favourite drivers and will have the opportunity to chat, take photos of cars in the infield. Fans will also have the chance to walk around the speedway. This event is also popular for drivers as they prepare cards or photos to give out to children and fans.

On the race track, a full show is on the schedule as all 5 classes will see some action.

In the Modified category, drivers will be in a heated battle to gain valuable points toward the championship title left vacant by Mario Clair. Look for drivers such as Joel Doiron, Stephane Lafrance, Laurent Ladouceur, Chris Raabe, Carey Terrance and others to be on top at the end of the 30-lap event.

In the Sportsman class local star and last week's winner Shane Pecore will look to get win #2 of 2014, but competition is strong in this category.

Pro Stock driver Dave Bissonnette is already in a good position to repeat his 2013 title, having finished second to Stephane Lemire last week. Bissonnette will need to be consistent all year long, as George Renaud, Jocelyn Roy, Marc Lalonde and Stephane Lebrun have eyes on the title as well.

The Semi-Pro and the Mini-Stock division will also be in action with 15 and 12 lap feature events, respectively.

The use of UCDSB school fields resumes for school activities only - effective immediately - thanks to a warm, sunny, and windy weekend! Use by community groups will be re-evaluated on May 15, pending the weather forecast for the week, in order to ensure the fields are ready for higher usage. We appreciate your patience with this issue, and look forward to seeing kids on the fields again.
