As the late, great Curly Howard would say … “Hmmm, that’s a coincidence!”
It was late August last year when Merlin’s Joe Brosseau drove for Wheatley’s Justin Mills and parked the 6M car in Victory Lane after the Schinkels Gourmet UMP Modified feature.
On Saturday, Brosseau again had the No. 6M on his panels and won another feature for Mills.
Looking back to that Aug. 31, 2013 race night when Brosseau won as a ‘hired gun,’ Merlin’s Eren Vanderiviere and Cottam’s Rob Quick also won feature races.
By coincidence, Vanderiviere and Quick won again this Saturday night.
Brad Authier was the other feature winner on that Week 16 night last August, winning the Rick Haskell memorial race for the Late Models.
Authier didn’t win this Saturday night - but Gregg Haskell did, one week before this year’s memorial race for his father.
If Austin Pickering was at the track that Aug. 31, 2013 night, he would have been in Dale Glassford’s pit, watching Ryan O’Hearn win the Bomber feature.
The 14-year-old Blenheim rookie earned his first career feature victory - and checkered flag - winning Saturday’s feature.
The best we can do as far as a ‘flashback coincidence’ for the Bombers to Week 16 of last year - Chatham’s Chris Ellerbeck and Brandon Ardis along with Blenheim’s Shawn Hope repeated top-five finishes, with Hope fourth in the ‘4′ car both nights.

Nine years separated Kyle Patrick from his first and second career feature wins at South Buxton Raceway.
It only took three weeks between wins number two and three.
The Tilbury native picked up his first career wingless victory in the Ontario Topless Sprints feature race on Saturday night at South Buxton.
It was actually back-to-back wins for Patrick, who hadn’t been behind the wheel of his No.33K Tilbury Tornado machine since his Aug. 2 Southern Ontario Sprints victory at South Buxton.
“That stat kind of rattled me a little bit, I had no idea it had been that long,” Patrick said, after being informed of the nine-year drought in his on-track interview.
“Being the stubborn bull that I am, I went back and looked it up and … holy cow, it was that long!” he said, with a smile.
Patrick said work has been so busy at the family-owned Patrick Welding business, he had to skip the last two race nights at Ohsweken Speedway, where he was fourth in the Corr-Pak Sprint standings earlier this month.
