Brandon Watson would make it for two-for-two so far this season as he would win the OSCAAR Super Late Model feature at Barrie Speedway.
The night wouldn’t start off pretty for the super lates as contact between Glenn Watson and Kyle Passer would result in Glenn Watson’s fender being ripped off and causing a debris caution. Then on the restart coming out of two turn, Jesse Kennedy would make contact with Passer, setting off a chain reaction wreck that collected Glenn Watson, Rob Clarke and John Owen. Glenn Watson’s car would have to be toed off, but the crew went to work and had it ready for the second round of the heats.
Clarke would pick up the win in the first heat ahead of Brandon Watson, Owen, Passer, and Henry Hagen.
In the second heat, Rob Poole would spin Brandon Vanderwel in turn three. Andrew Gresel would take the victory ahead of Ian Bourque, Poole, Vanderwel, and Paul Milligan.
In the third heat, Brad Corcoran would spin Sean Cronan on lap three. Then on lap four, Charlie Gallant would spin in turn two, possibly due to contact from Corcoran. Derrike Tiemersma would take the win ahead of Kevin Cornelius, Tyler Hawn, Cronan, Corcoran and Gallant.
In the fourth heat, Glenn Watson would have his car back together and take the win ahead of Brandon Watson, Passer, Clarke, Owen and Hagen.
In the fifth heat, the left rear would come off of Vanderwell’s car during the pace laps. Then on lap two, Gresel would spin Poole as they battled for the lead, collecting Bourque and Milligan. Gresel and Poole would be the only cars that would continue and it’d be Gresel taking the win ahead of Poole.
The final heat of the evening went to Cornelius ahead of Hawn, Tiemersma, Gallant, Corcoran and Cronan.
