Randy Rusnell would get by Paul Geniole Jr. late in the Super Stock feature to pick up his 10th feature victory of the season.
Geniole Jr. won the first heat behind the wheel of his No. 81 Canadian Tire-Port Perry, Brown Brow Roofing, Priggen Automotive, Terry Puckett & Royal Lepage, Trillium Propane and Welding Supplies Monte Carlo ahead of Cayden Lapcevich, Dan Archibald, Steve Wilson, Lane Zardo, Donny Munce, Ross Evans and Nick Tooley.
In the second heat, there’d be problems when Coltin Everingham blew his motor on lap two. Behind him, Johnny Morrison spun in the oil with Egor Boegoev making contact with Morrison’s car afterwards. Both Morrison and Boegoev got their cars back on track later in the night with Everingham done for the night.
The speedy dry made for a slippy track the rest of the heat with Rusnell taking the win behind the wheel of his No. 72 Travis Ind. Maintaince, Dreamdoodles.net, Cournyeas Poodles, Speedy Auto Service Burling, Spira Fire Protection, J&K Converters Ltd., Partimer Signs, Chetty’s Hot Sauce, Brant Transmission and McCordick Glove & Safety Monte Carlo ahead of Matt Bentley, Paul Maltese, Nicole Johnston and Everingham.
The third heat saw a caution when Dan Archibald have a flat tire and made heavy contact with the outside turn three wall. Zardo took the win in his No. 46 Holmes on Homes and National Exhaust Monte Carlo ahead of Geniole Jr., Munce, Lapcevich, Wilson, Tooley and Evans.
Rusnell went for the daily double ahead of Boegoev, Bentley, Morrison, Maltese and Johnston.
Nick Tooley drew pole behind the wheel of his No. 82 X-Copper, M&M Meat Shops – Innisfil and Bradford, Alliston Transmission, Playdium and Total Lubricants Super Stock ahead of Donny Munce, Egor Boegoev, Steve Wilson, Paul Geniole Jr., Paul Maltese, Nicole Johnston, Ross Evans, Matt Bentley, Cayden Lapcevich, Lane Zardo, Randy Rusnell and Johnny Morrison.
Tooley and Munce ran side-by-side for the first lap with Tooley taking sole possession of the lead on lap two. Munce then battled Boegoev for second, with Boegoev making his way by. Boegoev would then get his No. 23 KARTstart and Motoring TV Super Stock alongside Tooley for the lead, making his way by on lap four. Geniole Jr. had carved his way through the field, getting alongside Tooley for second. Geniole took second on lap five.
Tooley continued to fall back through the field, landing in ninth on lap 10 as Boegoev continued to lead Geniole Jr., Maltese, Bentley, Lapcevich, Zardo, Rusnell and Wilson. Lapcevich got alongside Bentley for fourth on lap 14, though was unable to get by. Rusnell would then get alongside Lapcevich, though didn’t get by as Bentley and Lapcevich got side-by-side once again on lap 15.
Bentley and Lapcevich continued to battle, bringing Maltese into their battle as the three of them went three-wide for third on lap 17. Lapcevich got the best part of the deal, grabbing the third spot. that opened the door for Rusnell as Rusnell got alongside Maltese and Bentley on lap 18 for fourth.
Back at the ranch, Geniole Jr. would get alongside Boegoev as they went into turn one, completing the pass on lap 21 to take the lead while Lapcevich and Rusnell battled for third. Rusnell cleared Lapcevich for third on lap 22 ahead of Zardo, Bentley, Maltese, Wilson, Morrison, Tooley, Evans and Munce.
The first caution of the feature flew on lap 25 when Munce spun Evans in turn two.
On the restart, Geniole Jr. held down the lead while Boegoev and Rusnell battled for second. Rusnell cleared Boegoev on lap 25. Lapcevich would look to follow Rusnell, however Boegoev was lower than Lapcevich anticipated and the pair made contact. Boegoev saved his car from getting into the inside wall, but in the process got into Lapcevich and caused Lapcevich to make significant contact with the outside wall. Both drivers would be done for the night. Recall this is the second big incident for Lapcevich after being put into the backstretch wall earlier this month by Steve Cashmore.
On the restart, the caution flew once again as Munce would spin while Bentley would pull his car behind the wall with mechanical problems.
On the second attempt of a restart, Geniole Jr. and Rusnell ran side-by-side for the lead till the caution flew for Johnston spinning in turn four. Morrison would head down pit road and be done for the night due to leaking oil. With three laps to go, Rusnell led Geniole Jr., Zardo, Maltese, Wilson, Tooley, Munce and Johnston.
Rusnell would lead the final three laps after the restart to score his 10th victory of the season. Rusnell promised in victory lane if he won the championship for the second straight year, the fans would be in for a treat with a big burn-out on the final night of racing. So in other words, with that said plus the final night being a fan appreciation night, I expect to see you at Sunset Speedway on September 14th.
Paul Geniole Jr. finished second followed by Lane Zardo, Paul Maltese and Steve Wilson.
Donny Munce finished sixth followed by Nick Tooley and Nicole Johnston.
