Speedway promises to be busy in upcoming weeks, if Mother Nature allows

sean Jul 21, 2017 - 12:31pm

Mother Nature’s bad behaviour sets the stage for a very busy end of July at the Cornwall Motor Speedway, with remake features being added to the last two events of this month. Here are the details.

This Sunday, July 23, the Pro-Stock and Mini-Stock division will be added to the beginning of an already busy evening, as the Race for the Cure Sportsmen Series will be the highlight, along with a full show and the always popular autograph night.

On July 30, the Modifieds and Sportsmen will complete their feature remake from the 16th, at the start of the night, as the DIRTcar Pro-Stock Series will be in town, along with the Quebec Mod-Lite, plus a complete show. The Mini-Stock will have the night off.

"We wanted to reschedule these feature as soon as possible without penalizing divisions that will run important series races during these weekends such as the Sportsman and Pro-Stocks," mentions the track's PR Director.

Both nights will start at 6pm, so the evening won't be too long for fans and race teams.

For this coming Sunday, the pit gates will open at 2:30pm with a cost of $30, and the general admission will open their doors at 4:30pm with a cost of $20 for adults, $10 for seniors, and $2 for kids 16 years old and under. Sportsman will have time trials at 5:30pm, with their remake feature following right after.

Sunday night racing curtailed by Mother Nature, again

sean Jul 17, 2017 - 4:57pm

A very busy evening was on tap for Sunday night at the Cornwall Motor Speedway, including a visit from the Patriot Sprint Tour, feature races in all division, and the fourth attempt at running the Cindy Ladouceur Memorial / Danny Lefebvre race, but once again Mother Nature interfered with plans. Just two races were completed before rains came.

The Cindy Ladouceur Memorial / Danny Lefebvre race started the evening, as Tyler French took the early lead in front of Karl Potvin and Marc Dagenais. A good battle ensued for second between Potvin and Dagenais, as Dylan Kirkland brought out the caution on lap 13. On the restart, Dagenais powered by French for the lead, with Joe McNicholls in third. McNicholls battled towards the front, joining Dagenais, when Patrice Moniere rolled over in turn 2 and red came out with one lap remaining. McNicholls led the final lap and captured the win, his first of the season at the Cornwall track

The 30-lap Patriot Sprint Tour saw Dylan Westbrook out in front early, with Steve Poirier in second and Mitch Brown in third. With 10 laps in, Westbrook found himself caught in the traffic. He continued to lead until lap 22, when Poirier made his move to pass, with Jared Zimbardi running in third. Poirier held the lead over the final laps to win the Patriot Tour feature, with Westbrook and Zimbardi completing the top three.

The rain came in as preparations were underway for the Modified feature, forcing track operators to pull the plug for the rest of the evening. Remake dates will be determined in the coming days.

For more racing news, please see this week's edition of The Glengarry News.

Patriot Sprint Tour feature results (30 laps): Steve Poirier, Dylan Westbrook, Jared Zimbardi, Mitch Brown, Cory Turner, Jordan Poirier, Lee Ladouceur, Rick Wilson, April Wilson, Yan Bilodeau, Chris Jones, Paul Pekkonen, Guillaume Neiderer, Jake Brown, Ryan Turner.

Cindy Ladouceur Memorial / Danny Lefebvre results (25 laps): Joe McNicholls, Tyler French, Marc Dagenais, Dylan Kirkland, Steve Morin, Alexis Charbonneau, Skylar Ladouceur, Mike Gaucher, Patrice Moniere, Francis Desjardins, Justin Jodoin, Karl Potvin, Corey Gates.

Busy night of racing slated for Sunday at the speedway

sean Jul 14, 2017 - 4:58pm

It will be decidedly busy Sunday evening at the Cornwall Motor Speedway, with six classes of racing on the schedule, for a total of seven features. 

The slate includes a visit by the Sprint Car division, for the 30-lap Patriot Sprint Tour feature.

The evening will see the fourth attempt to complete the second round of the Cindy Ladouceur Memorial Series, which will also be combined with the Danny Lefebvre Memorial. Previous runs have been scrubbed due to inclement weather. This is a 25-lap race, booked to start start the evening at 6:15pm sharp!

The Mini-Stock will then have their regular evening with heats and a 15-lap event later in the evening.

Because of all the losses calendar-wise so far, promoter Raymond Lavergne decided to add the Modified division to Sunday’s event.  They will run a 30-lap regular feature. As well, the schedule includes races for the Sportsman, Pro-Stock, and Novice Sportsman.

Pit gates will open at 3pm at a cost of $35. General admission will open at 4:30pm with a cost of $25 for adults, $13 for seniors, and $2 for kids 16 years old and under.

Rain triumphs again at the Cornwall Speedway

sean Jul 11, 2017 - 2:33pm

As staff and crews were getting ready for one of the biggest events of the season on Sunday evening at the Cornwall Motor Speedway, rain appeared, forcing the cancellation of a sixth program this season.

A total of 34 Modified class drivers had already signed in for the Super DIRTcar Series when a second shower hit the track at the end of the afternoon, leaving promoter Raymond Lavergne with no option but to cancel the show. A thunderstorm followed, solidifying the decision.

Drivers and fans who had purchased a ticket are invited to hold onto it for any of the next three programs on the schedule. Any value difference will be reimbursed.

The Speedway is currently working towards a remake date for the big-blocks and the Cindy Ladouceur-Danny Lefebvre Memorial Series. Please stay tuned, as The News will relay updates when we have them.

In the meantime, we have a story about two young local racers in this week's edition of The Glengarry News.
