Scott McTeer wins Sauble Speedway's Dash for Cash featuring Kenny Wallace
On a night when there was visitors from other tracks and a couple NASCAR drivers mixed in the fray, it'd be Sauble Speedway's own Scott McTeer winning the Dash for Cash presented by Sauble Speedway and Butchart Automotive Service & Transmission.
While it was a group of Sauble's best Late Model drivers joined by some other drivers from around Ontario, they were joined by NASCAR Nationwide Series driver and SPEED TV personality Kenny Wallace, who was driving Tim Schreinert's Late Model. Also on hand was defending NASCAR Canadian Tire Series (NCATS) Champion Scott Steckly, who was joined by fellow NCATS driver Mark Dilley.
The first heat saw 2010 Sauble Speeday Limited Late Model Champion Jason Parker take the victory, ahead of Josh Stade, Marvin Freiburger, Jason Tremble and Josh McCellin.
The second heat saw NASCAR Canadian Tire Series competitor and Sunset Speedway track promotor Mark Dilley take the victory driving Nick Goetz's late model. Scott McTeer finished second, followed by Mel Priebe, Steve Adams, Scott Steckly and Kenny Wallace.
The third heat was won by Jason Tremble, followed by Freiburger, Parker, Roy Wilkie and Stade.
The fourth heat was won by Sauble's Andy Kamrath, followed by Steckly, Dilley, McTeer and Wallace.
So come feature time following qualifying, it'd be Marvin Frieburger starting on the pole, followed by Mark Dilley, Jason Parker, Jason Tremble and Scott McTeer. Scott Steckly would be starting sixth, followed by Josh Stade, Mel Priebe, Andy Kamrath, Justin McClellan, Roy Wilkie, Kenny Wallace, Tommy Robb, Cole Weber, Brittany Gresel, Tom Gibbons and Jennifer Hatch.
Freiburger would jump out to the early lead on the opening lap, while Parker would move up to second, followed by Dilley and McTeer while Stade and Tremble battled for side-by-side for fifth.
There'd be a scary moment on lap three when Preibe would flip over on his roof after going three-wide with Robb and Weber. Weber may not had known that Preibe was on his outside and slid up coming out of turn two to go out to the wall, pushing Preibe up on the wall and over. Preibe would get out of his car and would be okay.
Under that same yellow, Hatch would stop her car just before turn three on the backstretch with the car leaking water. She'd be done.
On the restart, Frieburger and Parker would battle side-by-side for the lead and stay that way till the caution at lap seven for Tremble stopping on the front stretch. At that point, the top five was Parker, Frieburger, Dilley, McTeer and Stade.
On the restart, Parker would jump in front of Frieburger with the lead while McTeer would pass Dilley for third and Kamrath passed Stade for fifth. On lap 10 while Parker continued to lead, McTeer would get alongside Freiburger on lap 10, completing the pass on lap 12.
McTeer would begin to look for a way around Parker at lap 16, getting underneath him on lap 19. Though the caution would come out the next lap as when Dilley, Kamrath and Stade went three-wide for fourth, it bottle-necked the field up and Wilkie went for a spin Gressel, meanwhile, would pull her car to the infield.
On the restart, Parker would have the lead, ahead of McTeer, Frieburger, Dilley and Kamrath. On lap 21, Dilley would get alongside Frieburger, completing the pass for third on lap 28. Kamrath would then pass Frieburger for fourth on lap 33.
On lap 39 with 11 laps to go, Kamrath and Dilley would get alongside for third, with Kamrath completing the pass with eight to go.
In the final sprint to the finish, Scott McTeer would find his way past Jason Parker to take the victory in the Dash for Cash presented by Sauble Speedway and Butchart Automotive Service & Transmission Late Model feature. Andy Kamrath would finish third, followed by Mark Dilley and Josh Stade. Marvin Freiburger finished sixth, followed by Tommy Robb, Scott Steckly, Kenny Wallace and Justin McClellen.
