As the season starts to wind down, several feature series at the Cornwall Motor Speedway made their last appearance on Aug. 18, and a special night of racing is set for Thursday.
In the night’s big races though, CD Beauchamp and Steve Bernier took the checkered flags.
The headlining feature was the Sisters for a Cure 50, which saw Beauchamp take the lead from the green flag and hold onto it throughout, as the pack behind him tussled for the other podium positions. In the first 20, Marc Lalonde and Dave Bisonnette, Roch Aubin and Dave Seguin all fighting for that podium finish. It was Lalonde moving into second in the final laps, the position he’d hold at the finish with Seguin in third. The race led to a donation of $4,900 to the Grace Foundation.
Beauchamp also secured the championship for the series with a one-point lead over Aubin.
In the Loud and Dirty Modified feature, Bernier wasn’t in the leaders’ group at the start of the race, when the top-three positions were held by J-F Corriveau, Stephane Lafrance and David Hebert. After a lap-three caution, Hebert had moved to second and Chris Raabe to third; racers stayed in that order until lap 13, when Hebert went up the middle on Corriveau and Bernier nudged into third place. Bernier would pass Corriveau before a lap-17 caution and take the lead on lap 19, staying there until the end.
Shane Pecore nabbed his eighth in the Next Level Home Improvement Sportsman feature, leading from start to finish. Ryan Stabler finished in second, and Gabriel Cyr took third.
Yanik Potvin won his second of the season in the 20-lap Weekend Warriors Mini-Stock Series, after exchanging the lead several times with Justin Jodoin.
Thursday evening’s a special night at the clay oval, as the Race for the Cure 150 hits the start line. It’s the third edition of this massive race, with a total prize purse of $42,000 on the line. It will be combined with the DIRTcar Sportsmans Series for a full night of racing.
Pits open at 3 p.m., with the grandstand opening at 5 p.m., time trials scheduled for 6:30 and heats starting at 7 p.m.
