It was ‘double the pleasure’ for Leamington’s Joel Dick and Ridgetown’s Dale Glassford on Saturday night at South Buxton Raceway.

Both drivers swept their division crowns by winning their season championship races and clinching points titles.

Dick already had the Schinkels Gourmet Meats UMP Modifieds points title locked up going into Saturday’s races but had a battle on his hands with Belle River’s Mario Toniolo in the early goings before taking the lead with 10 laps to go and went on to win his second straight and third championship race in three years.

Toniolo held on for a second-place finish while Chatham’s Darryl Hoekstra finished third.

Toniolo also finished second in the final points standings.

Glassford led all 20 laps to win his second career championship race in the Westside Performance Plus UMP Late Models.

He went into the night with a slim two-point lead over Chatham’s Jim Jones atop the standings but emerged as the Late Model points champion for the third time of his career. Glassford finished 25 points ahead of Jones.

Chatham’s Gregg Haskell, the two-time reigning points champion, finished second and Wallaceburg’s Mike Lewis was third.

Chatham’s John Pinsonneault won the seventh Tirecraft Mini-Mod feature of the season for his ‘0′ car while Blenheim’s Trevor Jones finished second.

And with his second-place finish, Jones unofficially is the 2014 Mini-Mods season points champion one week before the division championship race.

Jones leads Pinsonneault, who moved into second in the standings, by 113 points - and the maximum a driver can accumulate is 105 points in a single race night.

Cottam’s Rob Quick, who went into the night second in points, fell out of the feature early and finished 17th, dropping to third in the standings, 118 points behind Jones.

Steve Shaw Jr. finished third and Dylan Wolters, the 14-year-old from Kingsville, was fourth for his third straight top-five finish.

Chatham’s Eric Vanderiviere won his second Tirecraft Sport Stocks feature of the season, with Merlin’s Steve Shaw second as the co-workers at Midas Auto Service Experts finished one-two on a night where their employer was a co-sponsor.

Chatham’s Eren Vanderiviere finished third as he will take a 52-point over Shaw into this Saturday’s championship night for the Sport Stocks in his bid for a fourth straight points crown.
