Kevin Cornelius continued his string of solid top five feature finishes with a second place finish in the feature on Saturday night.
In the first heat, the Orangeville, Ontario native finished third after starting seventh.
In the second heat, Cornelius would score his fifth heat victory of 2012 after holding Mike Bentley off in a close battle.
In the feature, Cornelius would start the No. 17 Halton Crushed Stone Lee Sand & Gravel, Hanson Concrete Products, Sandbox Tech Child Care, Alliston Transmissions, Ed’s Automotive Services and Fierce Wraps Late Model in the 12th position. By lap 11, he was already up to the sixth position.
The first and only caution of the Late Model feature would come out on lap 13 when Keith Maiato would run into problems while leading. This would allow Cornelius to move up to the fifth position. In the next five laps, he would work his way up to the second position behind Mike Bentley. However, he wouldn't be able to catch Bentley in the final 12 laps, handing him a second place finish.
In the point standings, Cornelius continues to lead, now up to 14 points over Walters.
