Kyle Patrick topped the Southern Ontario Sprints.
Now, he hopes to top the topless.
The Tilbury Tornado returns to South Buxton Raceway this Saturday night for the fourth time this season, and second time with the Ontario Topless Sprints.
Patrick picked up his second career South Buxton victory on Aug. 2 with the SOS.
He finished second to Joe Bares, of Traverse City, Mich., in the first OTS visit on June 14.
While Patrick has been a familiar visitor with several sprint series over the past decade, another local sprint driver will be making his South Buxton debut.
Tyler Hendricks, of Pain Court, will be taking the wing off his Crate Sprint to run with the OTS on Saturday.
Hendricks, grandson of South Buxton Hall of Fame driver Don Hendricks, has been running asphalt modifieds and late models at Delaware Speedway before making the switch to dirt this year in the new Crate Sprint Series at Ohsweken Speedway.
Hendricks will also be at South Buxton as the Ohsweken Crate Sprint Series has been added as a support class to the Canadian Fall Shootout on Friday, Sept. 26.

Hope started in the third row of the 13-car field and moved into second place on lap two.
He took the lead from Chatham’s Chris Ellerbeck after a restart on lap seven and led the rest of the way,
