South Buxton Raceway’s premier classes will hold double features this Saturday night, including mid-season championships postponed from last week.
The Schinkels Gourmet Meats UMP Modifieds and Westside Performance UMP Late Models will take the track at the start of the race program to run their trophy races.
Brandon Syk, of Blenheim, was the winner of the St. Francis Advocates 50-50 draw last Saturday.
He won $1,085.50. His winning ticket number was 0566323.
The 50-50 number was drawn before the Tirecraft Mini-Mods mid-season championship and the race night was called moments after the checker flag fell because of rain.
Rain postpones Modifieds, Late Models mid-seasons to July 19
Merlin’s Eren Vanderiviere led all 20 laps to win his second straight and third Tirecraft Sport Stocks mid-season championship in four years on Saturday night.
Merlin’s Steve Shaw finished second and Essex’s Doris Lajeunesse third in a race slowed by just one caution.
Chatham’s John Pinsonneault survived two early race incidents to win the Tirecraft Mini-Mods mid-season championship.
Blenheim’s Jeff Schives led all 15 laps to win the Autotech Bombers mid-season crown.
The race night came to an abrupt end because of a 15-minute downpour after the Mini-Mods feature, postponing the Schinkels Gourmet Meats UMP Modifieds and Westside Performance Plus UMP Late Models mid-season championships to this coming Saturday.
