(By Martin Bélanger) The Sportsman and Pro-Stock divisions will have an important evening Sunday, when the DIRTcar Series kicks off at Cornwall Motor Speedway for both divisions. A full race program is also on the schedule.
The Sportsman will have a 50-lap event involving the best drivers from the division for the initial event of the DIRTcar Sportsman Series. Invaders such as defending series champion Brad Rouse, Mathieu Desjardins, Martin Pelletier, and Jessica Power will compete again a strong field of local drivers, such as Joey Ladouceur (2013 runner-up), Shane Pecore, and Corey Wheeler.
The 2013 DIRTcar Pro-Stock Series champion Dave Bissonnette will try to use his home track to his advantage and get a good start in defending his crown. A 50-lap feature is on the card as drivers like Rob Yetman, Francois Adam, Alain Brochu, and Stephane Lemire will visit the speedway to run against Bissonnette, Roch Aubin, Jocelyn Roy, Stéphane Lebrun, and other great local racers.
The very competitive Modified division will have a 30-lap event as the points race is very tight after 2 races with Stéphane Lafrance and Carey Terrance tied at 90 points in first. Chris Raabe is only 1 point behind the leader as Chris Herbison and Kyle Dingwall are tied at 86 points while Brian McDonald is at 85.
The Semi-Pro class will have a 15-lap event, and the Mini-Stock will run a 12-lap event.
General admission for the night of racing is $15, while children 16 years and under are only $2. Heat races are scheduled to start at 7pm sharp, with time trials at 6:30pm.
Last weekend, the OVFL Cornwall Wildcats were on the road in Markham for their season opener. The squad, led by quarterback Jeremy Pike from Summerstown, won 40-12. Pike passed for three touchdowns and ran for another, going 10 for 15. Among other notables, defensive back Matt Jones had two shared tackles, and Will Green had a sack.
This weekend, the boys go on the road again to play the York Simcoe Bucs.
First home game is scheduled for Saturday, June 7 at 4pm against the Myers Riders.
